Review summary

This cruise was amazing and everything I thought it would be! Panorama is a beautiful ship!


4 out of 5
Embarkation was smooth, with the exception of the 3 day cruise having numerous back-to-back cruisers for the 7 day cruise afterwards. The cruise terminal is kind of confusing based on the set-up.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Amazing food throughout the cruise! The MDR was awesome and JiJi was phenomenal. The Carnival Kitchen was a total flop—only 6 people (4 from our group) attended the Elegant Affair, which consisted of Rabbit. Very disappointed with this new speciality dining, based on the one class we did.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The service on Panorama was the best of ANY Carnival cruise we have sailed. Team members remembered our names, drink orders, food preferences and were ALWAYS so friendly and willing to help.

Ship tip

DO NOT arrive early to port because you will have to wait for your zone number, which intern causes issues for passengers who are on time for their zone. Go on vacation wanting to have a blast and do not let the little things get to you.

Cabo needs a cruise port for docking. Rendering at this port was quite confusing, with getting ticket numbers for zone times to get off. It was very disorganized.
