a WONDERFUL Catalina & Ensenda Cruise, Loved Catalina would do it again, not sure about Mexico. by ctr4me50

This was our first cruise with Carnival. We enjoyed our cruise, but comparing it to our other cruises we realized it was geared for the young under 50 group.

Great cruise but could have skipped Mexico. by cruiseship12

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

Overall it was a pleasant cruise and I would go on a cruise again but not this one. I loved Catalina Island but not Mexico. It was my first time in Mexico and it was very disappointing because it was dirty, people were begging for money, harassment was everywhere, and it didn't feel safe. I don't know why this is even an option for people. If you are not doing an excursion - then this is what the rest of Mexico has to offer.

Relaxing and belly filling. by bevincallan

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The accommodations were great, however we were disappointed by all of the smoking areas both outside AND inside. We were required to walk through the indoor smoking area to get to several key areas of the ship, which meant that we chose not to participate in many onboard activities.

Beautiful Carnival Cruise by tornelg714

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I had so much fun. We are thinking of doing one in the future. if not next year in two years. Hopefully soon. One thing i would change the sanitary bag situation maybe instead putting a bag on the trash can but that didnt stop us from having fun.

An OK get away with family by tangomd2008

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

cruise is an ok value. The ship is old, kids activities are quite limited, service and staff ok. On board WIFI is plan and simple fraud. I got the highest speed internet, and it took literally minutes to load an internet page. PLEASE do not get WIFI unless you absolutely must have it.

I was promised a $100 credit from when I signed up for this cruise and I never received it. I will never ever use when I go on a cruise. They have no Honor System !!!!

Get what you pay for. by beschmidt

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

This was our second cruise, we met a large group of old friends for a surprise party. I had been able to manage my expectations based on other reviews, but those who didn't read were disappointed. It's very dated, early 90's Vegas gaudy. Small room, smaller bathroom. But we got what we paid for: a party boat with friends and had a great time. Our day at Sea was bumpy, it seemed as we were just parked out there so any waves you felt constantly. The food was blah, and having alternatives for food allergies was minimal> It started to be the joke with our friends every time the server said you can order anything you want and we'll make it GF, then when delivering food said we could not do that GF so here is.... Also, don't buy the wifi or the "chat" feature within the Carnival hub app, neither worked, waste of money. Alchemy Bar was great, everyone loved it, Lidea made everyone feel welcome and left happy. Our Cabin Hostess, Esmerelda was very kind and helpful. The entertainment was sketchy, one of the comedians was a offensive, the bingo entertainers were lame! Smoking in the clubs, bars and casino was gross, smoking should only be outside.

First time Cruise. by anthonym1ll3r

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

For my first cruise this was really fun. I enjoyed the shore excursion and the cheers option even though only 15 drinks that included alcohol were allowed. The opportunities that the ship had, there was a point in time were everything on the ship closes... even the casino. How they decided to close the casino was outside of my comprehension, but for a the night cruise for a first time it was fun. definitely would go again. just beware if you pick the king bed option all that is going to hppen is that they are going to push two smaller beds together and you will definitely feel the gap in the middle.

Fun but overall a little disappointing by dlej3

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

Overall it was nice to getaway and cruising is always relaxing but this one left a bit to be desired around onboard activities and food. It was also not as family friendly as we had hoped. The staff was amazing and the ship was very clean. We also had fun at each port.

The crew on the ship were all so nice and helpful! Loved the spa experience! I won bingo which was so much fun! The serenity 21 and up section was a perfect relaxing place on the ship. Food was so good! Loved the breakfast omelette, burgers and ice cream!
