First and Last Carnival Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Weather a little rough the first night but wonderful after that. Ship was not as elegant as I had hoped and most of the lounge areas were not very comfortable. Had a great cabin steward and several waiters were notable, most crew were very friendly. Room had bedbugs, not nice. Enjoyed the new itinerary. The food was very good in the dining room but not really impressed with buffet food. The Burgers, pizza and barbeque spots were great.

Not the best I've ever taken

I have sailed carnival before and this is not what I expect from this company. I spent over $3k for this trip for myself and my 11 year old daughter. This cruise left me feeling ripped off.

Birthday Cruise

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends
This was my Birthday cruise and I went alone. I enjoyed a quiet time and resting. I really enjoyed visiting with the cast in the show, I know many of them from previous cruises. I also enjoy the piano bar. Gregg was great and we had a good time every night.

Awesome Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
The cruise was great! Enjoyed all the activities and shows on board. went to the beach in Roatan. It was beautiful. We did the day on the beach excursion and it was great, had a reserved spot on the front row. Did the wildlife river cruise in Belize and it was great, it was rainy that day but they provided rain ponchos and there was a cover on the boat, didn't see many animals but still thoroughly enjoyed the ride. I think the guides name was Sue...She was a hoot.... It was a rainy day in Cozumel and we just went ashore to buy some things and were glad we did not have an excursion that day, when we got back to the boat we went to several trivia and other games on board and had a blast. Our dining experience was great, we did the Our time seating, sat by ourselves all but one night and shared a table with 2 other great couples. I really enjoyed the casino and how our bank was maintained. I won 1000.00 on night 2 on a poker machine with a royal flush! that made it extra fun so I played on that money the rest of the trip. Overall all we loved the trip from beginning to end... thanks Carnival and !

Overall, it was a good experience for us. We learned what we liked and what we didn't like. Will definitely do a couple things different next time but overall we had a good time.

Typical Carnival Experience

Food, staff, room and ambiance were great. It is geared toward families and younger people so if you are not into kids and partying, choose another cruise.

where are the pools?

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group
all in all, it was what I expected for a carnival cruise in terms of food & entertainment. But the crew were great & we enjoyed the ports of call. I wished there were more pools on the ship...the main one on the Lido Deck was always full of people, like a big bath tub & the water looked grey when they'd all get out. ick.

Fun cruise with Carnival!

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
We had a wonderful vacation. The ports of call are phenomenal; I cannot recommend using a local tour enough. The Carnival excursions were crowded, and wouldn't have been nearly as authentic. Roatan, Belize City, and Cozumel have so much to offer.

Awful

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)
Worst cruise I have ever been on, people all over the ship were complaining about the service. Also heard a girl was raped. Another women was assaulted and had a black eye and was told that the ship was on international waters and there was nothing that she could do, security did nothing about it. I don't think cruises are safe anymore. What is the point in having security if they aren't going to do anything?

The Worst Cruise Ever!!!

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)
One of the engines went out on the boat and we never ported in Cozumel. We were given a 50 on board credit! We seat in the Gulf for a few hours two days in a row worried to death!!! It took them a total of 6 to 8 hours to fix the engine.

Will Never Travel Carnival Again

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)
The cruise was a huge disappointment. Some was related to the weather in New Orleans and Jamaica, but the biggest issue was the amount of money that was spent on the vacation and the boat's engine issue and lack of going to all the ports. We personally will NEVER travel on Carnival again.

Not the best.

Think they should have given more than $50 for a whole missed stop. 3 stops divided by $845 is nowhere near $50 bucks. It was enjoyable what we did get to do.

Not up to expectations

Having cruised on other lines we will not be cruising on Carnival again. We had fun, but it did not come close to measuring up to other cruise lines for quality of food and entertainment. The ship needs an adult only pool.

Good But Disappointing

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)
I had a great time on the cruise, but I saved up so much to enjoy the FULL experience and not part of it. Due to the ships malfunction, we could not continue on to Cozumel and was only compensated $50 and onboard FUN?!?! And due to the fact that this was my very first cruise it was supposed to be AWESOME all the way round. I really wanted to see Mexico but could not.

Shore excurions booked thru Cruise Only

I will only book shore excursions thru Carnival Cruise Line in the future as I travel in September 2017 due to my terrible and scary experience. Families traveling with children need to take responsibility for the way their children behavior.
