Enjoyed, but will use different cruise line. by jabrywho3

The ship was ok. The food was excellent. The entertainment was good. The cabin on the other hand was unbearably hot. We couldn’t rest well. It was so warm that I slept with a cold rag on my forehead and would wake up often!! The refrigerator never got our drinks cold. We were told it is not like our refrigerator at home when we complained. So, I assume a refrigerator is just a storage box for drinks. This was our second cruise. Our first with Carnival. We will not use Carnival again because we did not have this problem with the other cruise line.

This was cruise #6 and the BEST service and staff I remember. It was a relaxing vacation for my mom and me thanks to all who worked hard to provide us all an exceptional cruising experience.

Lots of fun by earlzeqharr

The staff on the boat was amazing. Everyone was nice and helpful. Housekeeper Julian made sure the room stayed clean and that we had everything we needed. The liquor staff work from Jamaica was very knowledgeable about the liquor selection on the cruise. Pan Guru was a amazing performer. Overall I had amazing time on the cruise.

Everything was wonderful but the Debarkation back in Jacksonville. That was the worst one I have even been a part of on all cruises I have been on.

It's like a smoke shop and a walmart had a baby and sent it off to sea.... by NotACarnivalFan

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

I have cruised 4 times in my life, 3 with Royal Caribbean, and this cruise with carnival. I can tell you that I will never sail on Carnival again. The amount of cigarette smoke was so disgusting, we couldn't even use our balcony on our suite which we paid for the privilege to use! Yes, their policy is no smoking in that area but people do.. and when we complained.. OH we will send someone. Whomever they sent must have been blind as a bat.... and it was only made worse when we got off the elevator on the lido deck to have breakfast and there they were smoking and drinking away at 8 am in the morning. My family could not escape the smoke unless we were in our room, which had a nice cat pee smell in the bathroom (which I account to the bathrooms/staterooms being new since the boat was refurbished a few months ago). Oh, Unless you like it Nuts to butts, Forget about the hottubs or the pools, even on the serenity deck. The Kids overtake ALL of that stuff and then where there is no kids, there's the drunk people. The serenity deck lets teenagers in there and well, no serenity at that point. now, move on to the drunk people and the kids. The drunk people were your typical drunk folk. Bumpin into everyone, leering at the half naked women in their bikini's on the boat, and again, their lack of regard for smoking areas... The kids though topped it. Running up and down the halls until 3 or 4 am every night. Again, calls to customer care or whatever the desk was called Yeilded nothing.. Now, Lets be honest. Put those 2 aside and the rest was not all that bad. The dining room food was great, the buffet.. well not so much unless you like cheap crap (the Caribbean food was good on the one day). The pizza place, don't bother. If you like it, you don't know what good pizza is.... DIgiorno is better... Guys burger joint was actually good. that was our lunch spot. The staff really was great.. Getting on and off for ports was awesome (GET THE FASTER TO THE FUN!!!!! BEYOND WORTH IT). The stingray encounter on balmoral was the absolute best.. The best memories on my trip were made there. All In all, if they had a better handle on the smoking, drunkards, and the kids, I might have sailed again but until they do not allow smoking RIGHT BY THE POOL, I'm never touching carnival again.

Perfect blue, between ocean an sky by ccontescu

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

We were a three generations party: grandfather (70), son (42) and granddaughter (14). Everyone enjoyed the cruise experience differently, but we all did, in very personal ways: the immensity of the ocean, the tranquility of the private beach and laguna, or the adventures with dolphins in Nassau. We all appreviated the personalized attention we got from the room steward (Seth), from restaurant personnel (Oana, Andrea, Cesar, Oxana) and the entertainment program (various parts of it, as appropriate for each generation).

Choose a different ship by bigb123

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

This boat is old, and even though it's been renovated, they can't possibly replace everything. Half of the elevators didn't work half the time, so we were pretty much forced to take the stairs the entire time. The cruise director wasn't great either. We only saw her twice the entire time. The food was pretty good, especially the burgers and the fine dining. This ship has very little for kids to do, so if they don't enjoy the kids club (which ours didn't), they're pretty much out of luck. We were never able to play putt-putt golf or ping pong because they were always taken and putt putt didn't have enough balls. They should have sign ups or something for ping pong so that everybody gets a chance to play. Our refrigerator didn't work for the first 2 days, and it took 5 calls to Guest Services for them to finally replace it. We had a good time, especially on the excursions, but we'll definitely choose a different ship next time.

Family Bahamian Cruise by afrprincess82

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

This was our first cruise with our kids. They had an awesome time and really enjoyed the onboard camp. I got the interior room because I was told it was great for families, and I totally disagree. The room was way too small for the 4 of us. Overall the boys loved it and we will be cruising again with Carnival!

Frustration by denam60

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

Needs to have more staff especially monitoring for slick floors. Needs elevator dedicated to elderly and disabled only and have more room for navigating motorized wheelchair/scooters. Would be nice if you change attitude of general public but that is impossible. So many rude people and very frustrated.
