Okay. Best part of the cruise was the Seuss Breakfast (and we were all adults). It was pretty stereotypical of every other Carnival cruise we've been on.

Very nice experience by neildadian

The cruise experience was better than I expected. I sailed on Carnival in the late 80's and mid 90's and was not impressed either time. I have avoided Carnival ever since. However, I was happily surprised at the quality experience.

Quick and simple by terrygrb

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was a good/quick getaway. Liked the diversity on the ship. The pools/hot tubs were packed. Getting to the parking lot is a bit difficult, the signage is poor. The parking facility is decent but when returning, the lines where awful. Overall a 3 out of 5.

This was my first cruise and definitely not my last with Carnival. The cruiseliner had many options for food and entertainment and it was 4 days well spent.

fun-filled getaway by SanDiegoCruisin

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Enjoyed the on-board entertainment, shows and piano bar (Kat Krull was fantastic), trivia, karaoke, and more. Wish there was more than one place to dance though, since it turned into club music after the first hour or so. Also, enjoyed the spa, but had an issue with being told we had a particular discount when booking and them not making good on it when paying. The manager was involved and wouldn't honor what we had been told, and gave us quite an attitude about it. Poor customer service at spa desk! But the treatments were great.

So-so Baja cruise by Sox99

This was our first cruise and we'd never do this particular cruise again. Food was mediocre and Ensenada was a total dump.

Nice simple cruise by Lucyqueen

Verified Review

Ship was small but good price for 3 people to get away. First time going on christmas time so it was nice having christmas decorations and theme activities. The pictures they take were not very good. It seemed that they were not even trying. Overall good.

It was a fun, entertaining and relaxing vacation by doctormfj

My only suggestion to make the ship better is to make it so that we can understand the important messages over the speakers. I could not understand any of the announcements.

Not as expected by Rupshi

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

The cruise was not as expected.We thought there will be a lot of activities and shows but to our disappointment there was nothing much available. The food was very repetitive as well and didn’t enjoy the selection at the lido deck . We booked our trip last March and in spite of that the sitting tables we got for our sit down dinner in all three days bad just bad.We later came to know that there better selections or people who were dining at the other dining room .Why this discrepancy.Overall,based on the experience I had ,I am not going to recommend this cruise to other perplu

Thanksgiving break by dmccashland

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

This is the third time we have taken this cruise; first time in the Imagination. The Inspiration seemed cleaner, an additional ping pong table. We did have a fire on board and our son was in the cabin asleep; luckily he woke up and smelled the smoke and joined us upstairs. The smell in the cabin was strong the rest of the day.

Not a cruise for kids by jeffanderson

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

The beach excursion is a joke not worth what we paid. Was very disappointed as it's a beach with a guard and a chain link fence. The chairs are chairs you get at Walmart, No lounge chairs. The water stinks and is muddy/sandy. There is nowhere to was the mud/sand off when your done. The kids were full of sand. Just thought it was going to be a beach at a resort. family of 4 cost $90. For what you get stay on the ship!!!
