Enjoyable trip from Galveston to Mexico by HackyMoto

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Everyone had fun, but the cruise went over too quickly. We didn't pony up for a WiFi connection for our kids which was a blessing as instead they read books, visited newly made friends, were nice to parents.

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Don’t go if you want Indian food or vegetarian food! Otherwise, it was a super fun trip!

Great Time by dbeal123

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The only downfall was when we arrived on the ship and all of the food stations were closed down. We were starving, once the food stations were open there was a rush of ppl. Besides the first day of trying to get something to eat, everything else was fine.

Great Cruise! by rskalle

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I don't have enough words to praise Carnival. Officers, Staff and Crew go above and beyond to make everyone comfortable and a cruise to remember.

Good ship by Yourdisplayname

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Disappointed in the hot tubs that were cold the entire cruise. I feel that the ship was overbooked, to many people. Overall is a great ship for the price. Enjoyed the shows and staff.

Old Ship! Needs Remodel! by gailmarch

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This ship was extremely disappointing and the food was weak. The cruise nickels and dimes you like crazy. I couldn’t purchase the alcohol package since not everyone in the room wanted it. I thought this was unfair. No free drink for my friend’s bday from any bar and she’s cruised 8 Times with Carnival!

Kind of disappointed by knowltonmariah

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Your food is the worst. Your crew is the best. Fix the food and it would have been a much better experience. Never sailing with carnival again.

Lower the volume by hcso570

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The trip was great. The staff deserves every penny of the tip money. Just don't leave passengers deaf.

The Dream that wasn't by hallhousefull

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I'd say it is a stretch to give the cruise 3 stars overall, as much of our time was spent either waiting in line for an activity or an elevator. We both wished we had forgone the activities offered and lounged around the deck instead. So-called activities were mostly centered around getting us to spend money on something, such as "art" in a high pressure action. I wonder how many purchased those expensive posters thinking they were genuine art? "Giclee on paper" is not an art media, it is a method of inkjet printing. The food was only "on" about 50% of the time. Lines were long in the buffet. In "fine dining" we had flavorless food, or strong-smelling seafood served to us. Service was good there, though. Breakfast was pretty good other than the greasy "puck" hash-browns and un-toasted toast. The coffee was good except for the last day, on which it somehow became very watery. Guy's barbecue was disappointing in its lack of flavor. The burger was a bit better. If I was served food like I received on this cruise at a local restaurant, I would not return there. Ports of call were nice, especially the excursion to Uxmal Mayan ruins. I highly recommend it. We booked through Carnival because of the length of the excursion and distance away from the port. We wanted that guarantee that the ship would wait for us. It only cost a few dollars more than 3rd party companies were offering. It was reported that someone in Cozumel had their purse picked for over $1000 loss, plus several credit cards. A good reminder to use your in-cabin safe. Perhaps my expectations were too high, but all-in-all it this cruise leaves me doubtful that I would want to venture another. I will do further research on cruise companies and destinations to decide.

Average Vacation by pburgess

Average vacation with average food and a somewhat less than stellar stop in Progreso.

Great Little Getaway by gwbizman

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Fun 5-day trip. P.S. Galveston is a SMALL port, so BEWARE the luggage staff and ever-present Texas ABC enforcement means they PROBABLY WILL find that bottle you normally get to sneak on in luggage thru other ports like Miami or Ft, Lauderdale. Lost a $50 bottle of Patron personally :(
