Review summary

Do NOT take Carnival out of Miami. The worst experience possible.


1 out of 5
This was the worst Port I've ever had the misfortune to leave from. The parking garages were literally closed off - not full, just closed off, meaning you had to drive 2 miles away and WALK the entire way back, with luggage in tow. About 200 people were so angry they were literally screaming when they arrived. Carnival couldn't have cared less.

Service and Staff

Wonderful staff who put up with bullying, unruly, racist passengers.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The staff was constantly cleaning, which was great. The passengers - not so much. They would bully, shove, and yell at anyone who asked them to sanitize their hands. What an embarrassment.

Same crap as embarkation. Had to somehow get back to your car, with no shuttles, cabs or Ubers.
