Great First Cruise by FlaCrzr

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Fantastic experience. Everything was first rate. The behind the scenes tour was a highlight for us. Captain Bonica and the crew were personable and clearly wanted the experience to be memorable. Our cabin steward and wait staff were most attentive. Every encounter with staff and crew were pleasant. Everyone was smiling and really made certain any needs were met. We will definitely sail with Carnival again.

Great Time by foxscullyus

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Carnival always has better food than RCL. We did the Chef's Table and it was extensive but I wasn't really impressed, beware that they charge a service charge on the surcharge but they don't tell you that. I called and got the service charge refunded. I guess I wasn't impressed because I am such an extensive chef myself. It was a lot of fancy little dishes. I think it was the crab that made me throw up that night. I frankly would have rather done the Captains Reception and ate Prime Rib instead. :)

Cuba here we come! by katniko

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Very impressed with the refurbishment. The Crew was very pleasant and helpful! Anytime dining was exceptional. We enjoyed the comedians. We know that Carnival is known for having quite a few children on board, but they were allowed to run rampant through the halls into the wee hours of the morning. It was crazy! Carnival needs to have security peruse all decks throughout the evenings...

LOVED OUR CARIBBEAN CRUISE by monteracing2905

We enjoyed our cruise. Wish there was a little more to do on the ship. Such as a movie theater or a show or something at night. Other than that awesome

First Cruise Experience by qchil75

Verified Review

It was a pleasant trip to cruise with Carnival. All service people we met were exceptional - very nice, polite and helpful. They all earned my highest rating (5 stars). For our staterooms, we are very happy with services provided by Adi (steward) and his assistant. Thank you.

Great vacation for a family with teens over 18. We enjoyed most of the entertainment such as piano bar, shows on main stage & the cruise director, Cam was great!

/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

To sum it up I was very disappointed in this cruise I feel like this was the worst cruise ever for me in my friend. All out excursions was canceled that we had pick he did not want to just go to the beach he actually wanted to do some activities also the food the food was not great I love the food when I got the Carnival Pride the food was excellent there was nothing special about going to the dining room with the Mills in fact the food was better if we went upstairs and 8 on the dock they were too many kids running around late at night knocking my drinks out my hand my food over running on my feet I was just very dissatisfied and so was my friend

Caribbean Cruise--- Family Fun by toddaldrich

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

This is my first cruise with Carnival. I bought two excursions. One was feeding and petting sting rays and the second one was the Maya sport event with lunch. My family enjoyed both and the ship was clean, great service, and had plenty of onboard entertainment.

Nice Caribbean Cruise by schau

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

This was a 5-day cruise, stopping at Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico. The staff were polite and pleasant to interact with. The food was good, though the dining hall was often busy and it would take longer than usual for staff to take our orders or deliver food. The pool and water slide areas were quite crowded, especially during the day, so I did not use those facilities at all. Overall, a lovely experience on my first cruise.

This was my first cruise and I enjoyed every moment of it. Shout out and extra commendation goes to Po, our steward, Cam, our cruise Director, Riley, one of the entertainment staff, Jesus, one of the kitchen staff, Hazin, the serenity deck steward, and Brandon, one of the entertainment staff. They really made my trip worth while. Long Live Carnival Paradise!

Had a Great Time. I was assigned a bunk bed room. My fiance and i were not happy. A server came and saw we where sleeping on the floor, and advised we called guest services. With in an hour we were changed to a king bed room . That really made our trip. Thank you again for a great first cruise experience.

I wish they would not allow smoking in the casino or the bar located adjacent to the casino. Not very pleasant walking through smoke.
