Very disappointing cruise by mdventris

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED IN MY CRUISE THIS TIME. MOSTLY THE STAFF AND CREW ON THE SHIP AS WELL AS THE FOOD AND SERVICE. I MAY BE CHANGING CRUISE LINES IN THE FUTURE

Wonderful Caribbean Cruise by craftb66

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

This was my 3rd cruise (all with Carnival and three different ships). Each ship has its own unique characteristics. Loved the decor of the ship!! I will definately be sailing again with Carnival.

Least relaxing vacation ever... by alisch3

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

My husband and I took this cruise in hopes of a low stress, minimal effort, rest filled vacation. What we got was the opposite. We arrived on the ship and entered our room to the disappointment of a walkway directly beneath our balcony. Past cruises our balconies have always been right over the water, and while booking there was no mention of this. We were a little bummed but were excited to be on our way. Then the shows, performance rehearsals, and two performances a day started. Unbeknownst to us, our room was directly above the main stage. The sound insulation on this ship is non existent. (Between rooms as well) This wasn't just muffled music and bass. You could hear EVERYTHING three times a day, and the bass vibrations were unreal. The first night my husband went to guest services and asked if they had any other rooms, they did not and we were given ear plugs and were told that they'd open a complaint. It is so loud and so bass heavy that you could still hear it through the earplugs. I don't understand how they continue to book these rooms. We always reserve balconies because while we enjoy the cruise amenities, we enjoy resting, enjoying the ocean and having the extra space in our room. Perhaps if you are a cruiser who is in your room very minimally this room is for you. But we like to have experiences, do excursions and many of those are early. It is difficult to head to bed early when you have a 45 minute+ performance at 9:30 pm every night. I personally enjoy the shows as well, but when you've already heard the whole thing, sometimes twice depending on when we went to dinner, the joy in going is removed. We enjoyed our excursions as well, but it would have been nice to not be so tired. We have now been home for 5 days and are still recovering, but not in a good way. Guest Services seemed to care for the first half of the cruise as we continued to complain, but you could tell there was nothing they could do. On the 5th day we had a note left for us asking to come to guest services, and they offered something from the shops...not sure how that's helpful, and we declined. After that they seemed irritated that we hadn't accepted the bribe of Carnival gear and made a point of telling us that there were 4 pages of complaints documented. Not sure what they were writing since we didn't go down every night. Bottom line, booking through AA is fine, Carnival Magic is fine, but do your own research and don't think the $25 fee you're paying to makes them your actual travel agent. I feel like a real travel agent would give a warning about room location.

FaBelize Cruise! by jodoinsarrazin

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

We had a very sunny week (except for Belize) and the sea was so calm it felt like gliding on oil! We saw about 10 dolphins swim by the ship right in the middle of the Yucatan Channel!! WOW! My daughter loved the ice cream machine, one day vanilla twist the other, chocolate and vanilla twist.I appreciated the frozen yogourt machine!Great family vacation!

Best Belize Cruise by darienchal

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Synopsis- great ports of call based on the price. Due to an unforeseen medical emergency with a passenger we lost out on Grand Cayman as we ported at Key West the first night out of Miami. 15% off the next cruise is barely recompense. Water park onboard needed repairs half of it didnt work. Ship looked rusted on the exterior and needed a white wash.

Very relaxing cruise with great food by kellyrickd

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We had a great cruise. My only wish is that Carnival would consider adding Coke Freestyle machines to replace their Bottomless Bubbles program so we can refill wherever on the ship and not have to wait in line at the bars for a soda. Royal Caribbean offers this and it is so much better of an experience.

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

First time cruise goer. Loved the experience. After this experience, my husband and I twice about booking another all inclusive, we will definitely do another cruise instead.

Wonderful cruise! by jenlovespogo

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Had a great time. Only issues we really had were due to rocking motion of the boat, which had nothing to do with cruise line. Would go again.

Good, but have been on better by lnyoung

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

Wish the staff called people out on the rules they didn't follow. Serenity constantly had chairs with towels that had been there for hours. Woman filled water bottle with the water spout, unsanitary.

Nice Vacation by getbarbered

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Over all a pretty good cruise. If the speciality eateries had better open times, and there was a more efficient way to serve so many people. The lines were obnoxious at best.

Great Eastern Caribbean Cruise by IDCruiser

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was a great cruise. The ship is in good shape, food was decent (not great), the entertainment was good, the ports were interesting and beautiful and we had lots of time to relax. I think we might need to do this one again!

Not wonderful Cruise by tbembenekjr

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

These large Carnival ships are not for us. Better for families with lots of kids. Better for casino and bar people. Not for music or cultural lovers. We also like smaller ships rather than the large mega ships no matter who owns them. We do not like ships with 4,000 or more people on board. I do not agree with your overall rating of 3 out of 4. We really feel it is a 1 out of 4.

GREAT Caribbean Cruise by glodanzr

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

Weather was rough so the ship was rocky. I had noisy neighbors frequently from 2-3AM and I should have complained. I will make sure not to take future cruises in Jan. Photos are too expensive. On the positive side, the staff was WONDERFUL!! Big praises to the Cruise Director MARC Q! Food was fresh and well prepared. Ship very clean!
