Enjoyable experience... by thejazclub

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall it was a good experience. Having been on a half dozen cruise lines already I wouldn't put Carnival near the top of our favorites. Its good value but you can tell where the other cruise lines excel in the quality and variety of food choices. The alcohol package was a fail for us and would keep us from returning on another trip.

Exceeded my expectations! by rshwinters

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

This was our first cruise and it truely exceeded our expectations. The staff and service were amazing. Very impressed with Carnival. They only thing I would do different is I wish I would have purchased the Cheers drink package for my husband and I. Cozumel and Progreso were both beautiful and both shore excursions we went on were perfect!

Will NEVER EVER book on this ship again! by stillnursery

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

I want my money back as we tried over and over to do with Guest services. Carnival has a real good scam going on here and basically holding people hostage and going where they choose to go and not where we PAID to go. I will NOT stop here with this review. I am contacting everyone about this. I am NOT a settle-for either. Settle for where ever someone decides to take me without my approval. I did NOT pay to go to PROGRESO! I PAID to go to COZUMEL!

It was fun, even if we didn't go to Cozumel by cwelch91832335

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was my first cruise. I dislike water, I cant swim (too many times almost drowning when I was little trying to learn) and I do not like boats at all. So, my wife says "Let's go on a cruise for our anniversary!!" and how do you say no to that?! To put it quickly, it was AWESOME and will definately do it again. Glad we picked Carnival and the Fantasy ship. The crew and food were wonderful, the shows were insanely funny, and even though the trip to Cozumel wound up being to Progreso instead, it was still a lot of fun! 9.5/10, will do again.

Ok Carribbean Cruise by asm1961

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Our first cruise. It would have been better if we could have visited both cities. Food was ok. A larger variety of choices would have been nice. Movie theatre would have been nice. More things to do outside than pool and golf.

We had a bad weather delay that was compounded with Mobile's Mardi Gras parade crowd but all wonderful when we finally boarded the Fantasy by rehenderson1

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Other outstanding employees include Addy who manned the omelet station, Sumali on the Lido deck who remembered our names and drinks and very friendly, and Suparsana at the Universe lounge who also was very friendly and remembered our names and drinks. We forgot the young man who cleaned and removed containers on the Lido deck (he wore white sunglasses) who worked very hard and kept the area spotless.

Great Family Time! by rusheh

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

We had a great time and look forward to cruising again in the future! We will definitely be looking for a boat with more entertainment and food options next time. It was great to be able to unplug and relax and let someone else handle the travel details. We had a good experience with Carnival overall!

Mobile Cruise with Fantasy by millarb

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The poor communication by staff on the ship caused issues, especially on debarking the boat. By not communicating that there was a delay pending due to weather until late morning caused us to miss our flight and not allow us to adjust to a later flight. Had to pay an extra $1,200 for flights and a hotel stay to get home a day late.

Verified Review

we had a great time on our first cruise. Guys Burgers are awesome. The service aboard the ship was great but unfortunately the ship is outdated. we stopped at Cozumel and there were 4 other ships in port and we were by far the smallest and most outdated ship

Unsafe Departure? by burnmytires

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We lost two days of Gulf Sun, and Captain claimed it was because of fig at the port, then an injury, then we left in the fog. Either explanations were incomplete or lies, or our departure from the port was unsafe. Ship was not well-maintained, and food was inedible. Crew was overwhelmed by late arrival at Mobile, then never recovered, and repairs done during cruise to common areas/ lifeboatsa/windows were done when we wanted to take naps which were interrupted by noise.

First time cruising by charlee0130

The excursion and evening shows were great. Because of the time of year it was too cool to spend time outside. Just wish more activities were available during sea days.

Shortened Trip; Great Staff, Terrible Weather by Ranums

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

Unfortunately, we did not have a great time on our cruise. We do not plan to schedule another cruise any time soon, if ever. The staff was very friendly and we experienced bad weather, which is unpredictable, but still unfortunate. We were very disappointed to miss one of our ports due to the cruise ship getting back to port late.

Enjoyed the cruise with family but carnival has gone downhill of customer service and the food. The lido deck food was really good.

Good Caribbean Cruise by ladonnaband

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

Ships needs upgraded. Nice crew. Loved Duncan, Russell, John and Marvin. However, my elderly mom went to the Spa and received the GoSmile teeth whiten and did not receive all of the products she paid for. We did not discover it until we got back home and unpacked. Also, I received a treatment and felt bamboozled into purchasing extra products. The lady said that the brush I purchased would bring my total to $108 but, in actuality the brush was $108 in addition to the procedure cost. Between not giving my mom all of her products and the sales trickery strategy, we will never use the spa on a cruise again.
