Fun family vacation by WilsonNC

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Our group was from age 2 to 63, all had a good time. Don't expect gourmet dining , if you do I highly recommend the Chefs Table $90. Sea Day brunch (included) is also great. Do your dining in the dining rooms, the Lido deck buffet is the worst. Food, quantity, diversity and quality is D+. Guys Burgers and Blue Iguana are awesome! Pizza is too. And the Carnival Deli (by the Pizza area) was amazing as well! Beds are comfy, entertainment is fun! Ship is clean and the staff is very attentive. Plan on taking stairs more than usual as some elevators weren't in order.

Not up to usual standard by viscomicm

This was not a showcase cruise for Carnival. There were so many deficiencies in logistics and service. The boat and the crew seemed really tired and worn.

I honestly have to say this cruise was OK. Nothing really bad, nothing exceeding my expectations. Not sure I would recommend this cruise to my family or friends. by stevecaron350

I've only taken a few cruises in y life and this is the only one I didn't feel good about. I was just OK. I'd also like to have known the services for a priority customer because other than the boarding/unboarding process and having our separate line at guest services I didn't feel like one.

Very disappointed. This was the worse cruise we have been on. The food was cold and it was burned. The entertainment was bad. It just seems like nothing was right.

Definitely out of the park great! Will be looking forward to doing this again. An A plus vacation at a bargain price. We thank you. by pianopromoving

Verified Review

Overall, I do not see how they could offer more for the price. Actually, I cannot see how they can offer as much as they did! But then, we bought the most cost effective room and did not add on much while onboard; maybe next time will splurge a little!

It was tons of fun and the crew was amazing. Half moon cay was stunning and I think more people need to visit that island.

Bahamas Cruise by wvoline

It's a great 1st cruise experience. You get your feet wet on a smaller ship and visit some good ports. The food is great at all times of the day.

Book-ended by chaos with memorial adventure in between by MrVincentVega

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

Elation was smaller than I expected and I was surprised by all of the waiting in line that we had to do. Overall the cruise experience was good and I'm glad we did it. I think Carnival is a good introduction to cruising and I expect we will go on another cruise in the future. Next time we will likley book on a larger newer ship with more amenities for a higher cost.

Pay for upgrade but there were no upgrade so I waste my money. ordered some items to be in my room for my wife’s birthday but half was done when I went to customer service they show me no respect at all. I love going on cruises but this one have been a hard pill to swallow.
