Cruising with Carnaval

Sail Date: September 17, 2016

Reviewed: 9 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Staff was very friendly. Cruise director is very funny

and awesome at his job. The comedy entertainment

was great. I did not like how the cruise line pushes

alcohol. So many people on the ship obviously drunk

and should have been cut off. 


Cruise Photos

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin could use a color update.
You will hear noise from the bar above
this room.
We had a great cabin steward
Embarkation and Disembarkation
I was not a fan of having to check in twice.
It would be nice to get the ship card at the first check in. I have been on other cruise lines and have never had to stand in line twice.
Getting off the ship was fast and organized
Ship Quality
The ship decor is on the dark side.
Public restrooms are hard to spot
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Lots to choose from
Cruise director is awesome
and the comedians were great.
The Trivia games are lots of fun
Service and Staff
Crew members are vey friendly
Service in the dinning room could
use some improvement. I also
did not like how they push drinks.
When you tell them no I don't want a drink
stop coming to the table 2 to 3 times to push shots or other alcohol.
Food and Dining
The food was what you would expect for the price of the cruise. Dinning room food was not exciting.
Galveston, Texas
We rented a car in Houston and drove to the port. Port parking was easy and it cost less for the 4 of us for parking and rental car than paying for shuttle service from Carnaval
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
We had a great time on the beach at Mahogany Bay. Safe and close to the ship
Belize City, Belize
Be sure to bring bug spray. Please be safe and use Skin so Soft from Avon. We were at the Mayan Ruins and did not get one mosquito bite. People around us were getting bit and we shared our Skin so Soft
Cozumel, Mexico
We went on a boat to snorkel the staff was awesome and the water and fish are amazing. This excursion is called Three Reef Snorkel. Bring cash with you ($30) for a CD with you and the fish. I attached some photos.


The pizza and Guy's Burgers are the best food on the ship.
