Great time, but times have changed by richmondlana

We are one trip away from platinum on Carnival, as well as using other lines. We have noticed a down sliding in the quality of the experience on Carnival. The Buffet food is the same, and gets boring. There are very few of the fun line dance. hairy chest types of experiences at the pools. The bars have fewer bartenders. All the service people try very hard, but if they are not given quality materials, they can't create a marvelous experience for the travelers.

1st Summer Cruise on an older, smaller ship by fhamzik

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our first summer cruise and didn't know what to expect. We are gold VIFP members of Carnival so this wasn't our first Carnival cruise. We have been pleased with Carnival until this cruise. The ports were great and made up for the lack of quality entertainment and food. We had a balcony room which was a good size. Our cabin steward was great and helped us with the lack of only having one plug in the room to charge anything, he hooked us up with a three plug adaptor. If this would have been our first cruise on Carnival I would never cruise with them again, but because it wasn't, I would just make sure to go on a newer ship like the Breeze, Dream or the Horizon.

All One Could Want in a Vacation! by hopper7673

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Without exception, the Carnival staff consistently facilitated the most relaxing & comfortable environment for a week away from the usual demands of daily life. Considering the high number of passengers within one vessel - all be it of large size - the requirements of eating, transit within and without, and overall management & upkeep were met with remarkable expertise, patience, and friendliness. My wife and I applaud your dedication that reflects endurance through the many cruises you oversee week to week!

Very enjoyable Western Caribbean Cruise by skipjack28

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was an enjoyable cruise on Carnival. I had previously visited all of the ports but still found new excursions to enjoy. This ship is older and shows some signs of wear but still comfortable and clean. The Serenity deck for adults was fantastic. The comedians were fantastic, especially Kim Harrison and Larry Omaha! We purchased bottles of alcohol to take home and found the prices on ship to be much lower than at home and lower than most of the duty free shops in port. There were a lot of children on the ship but they must have been well entertained because we were not bothered by them in any way.

Fun trip! by ellencornell1

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

Everything good except the teenagers from hell in the cabin next door(132). Father registered in the room but left three 17 year old boys alone to run wild with screaming, banging, and blasting music. Numerous calls and visits to guest services resulted in only temporary relief, broken promises, and worthless apologies. Naps disturbed and sleep interrupted.

Subpar experience by bjpblue

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

This was our first cruise and we were somewhat disappointed. The ship is very outdated and needs to be decommissioned. They had select places to eat and drink open so you soent much time in line waiting. The cabin was decent, our steward Sudane was amazing. Maybe the highlight of the trip regarding the actual cruise. At this point, this may be our first and last cruise.

Fantastic Experience for first time cruisers! by tdurdan

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We had a fantastic firs time cruise experience! Juan was our waiter and did an excellent job of making sure all of our requests and needs were met. Putu was our room attendant and also did an excellent job of ensuring everything was just right. He would often greet us in the hall each day and ask how everything was going. These two certainly made us feel that we not only had every need met but also every comfort to ensure our best vacation! We would highly recommend Juan and Putu be requested for your dinner service and room attendant!

First impression could have been better by tdllal94

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

Very disappointed with our first cruise. One week before departure Carnival changed the itinerary and we lost two ports with 3 days in Tampa. Their compensation was inadequate for ruining our vacation. We were looking so forward to Belize and Mahogany Bay with excursions purchased. Carnival gave us $200 on board credit per stateroom and a refund of $248. They tried to sell us on the free shuttles to area attractions and a Tim Rushlow concert. Not a country fan and I have no idea who he is. None of this made us feel better about our situation. I asked if Carnival would at least give us complimentary drink packages. The said no. Not sure if we’ll do a cruise again. If we do, we will try another cruise line. I think we’d prefer to just go to an all inclusive resort.

Nice Caribbean Cruise by ShoeBra

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Cruise was good for the most part, the people serving were great, the comedy club was hilarious, and the food at the steak house was incredible. The food however at the regular restaurant was hit or miss. And most of the food served throughout the day was very subpar. While the Carnival Cruise line did their best to accommodate the fact that they had to fix the ship a week before setting sail? It would have been nice to see some extra discounts or some kind of extra bonus. All in all, this was my first cruise and I'd like to go again sometime, but it might be with another cruise line just to try them out.

Boring Caribbean cruise by Kmcgreevy

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

This ship was very boring, had hardly any entertainment. Neve saw the cruise director . We just came off the carnival Vista s month ago and that ship was awesome. Awesome night life, great show every night the the cruise director was completely awesome . Always entertaining. The Miricle, like I said earlier was completely boring . The only thing it had was the comedy for night life. I would never go back .

lousy by jsalvat1

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our room stunk of sewage when we first entered, made a point to let staff know. They refreshed the room did help . Problem I believe is that drains in the decks going into the rooms and the pipe had dried out. Mold in our our bathroom, closets smelled, leaving our clothes to smell as well. Did not get fresh towels for 3 days, nor did they take the empty pitchers out of our room. Complained to supervisor. Crew never bothered to close the retractable roof during the rain. Believe has they done that more activities could have been done. Feel as though my hard earned money was stolen from me. I already sent a scathing review to them. Have had yet heard anything from corporate.

Will never cruise with Carnival again by CaribCruise

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

I was unhappy that while at Grand Cayman, most other excursions were cancelled due to the weather and sea conditions, however our excursion was not cancelled. We went out to sting ray city anyway and it was extremely cold and rainy. The waves were really strong and knocking people around making it difficult to prevent yourself from stepping on a stingray. The people the actually got in the water exited and were extremely cold. The dangerous conditions made this an enjoyable experience and I would have appreciated being refunded for this excursion. The Dolphin portion was great.
