Grand vacation by Trayamaie

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

We loved the option of being very busy with activities or being completely relaxed and doing nothing on the liddo deck. The pools were way smaller than anticipated. There was such a variety of activities. the most memorable part of the ship was our dinner waiters Ihwounaddin Sanjaya and made! And mikey too. Staff was friendly always greeting you even if just passing by in the hall. Food was incredible loved the variety of options at dinner

The cruise itself was good and the cruise director Mikey had a lot of great energy. We were disappointed by the day care services, food quality and the coffee shop times.

Never again with by fefy1

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

I would not booked through again. Janelle was the travel agent assigned. I could not get ahold of her initially so had to book through main number. When I finally reached her, she was suppose to link the account with family. The rest of my group received 50.00 onboard credit..I did not get the credit. Also, someone in my party was placed on the first floor and this was her first cruise ever. She thought she was on the 6th floor with her family. It was devastating for her. The boat was extremely rocky and prior to us boarding we saw on the news that the previous journey the stabilizer went out on the ship and it tilted. That is not good to see right before boarding. Also found out another Carnival ship tilted during our cruise..This company needs to evaluate all its ships. The fact that I was with family and friends made this trip enjoyable.

Very nice vacation and experience. The boat was very rocky and there was a lot of kids. I had a good time and there was a lot to do but not enough time to spend on the islands.

Marvin / A first timer review by MarvinM2018

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

Excellent. They gave us daily updates of activities under are door in writing. They kept us informed verbally through the passenger address system. Even the the incident the ship tilting was handle professionally: They corrected. They cleaned. They informed the passenger that they would keep us updated. They compensated with a credit. They updated in writing when the fault was found.. All in all I had a great time as a first timer and I will go with Carnival again just as soon as I can..

Horrible by rachelmickey021

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

Started off with a flooded room that smelt horrible like mold. They places my luggage in a sopping wet floor and got it wet. They then separated my room from the room that was supposed to be next to my children. So I was on a different floor than my 9 month old and 9 year old. I then got moved to a room that had a broken ac the fridge was broken and I found stuff in the room from the previous guest as if the room had not been cleaned. Every time I called for maintenance they told me someone would come and the never would show up. This went on for 2 days. To add to the frustration the ship listed and was chaotic. to be separated during this time was terrifying! It was all around a terrible experience.

Good Cruise with slight hiccup by daddyatt

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

Carnival food options are great and dining room menu choices are good if you order the right selections. Disappointed in preparation of menu items in the Italian restaurant. Shows in main theatre are not on a par with Royal Caribbean. Pools were very small.

Wonderful experience. by sistersvacay

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

This was a great vacation for me and my 2 sisters. We really enjoyed the port of calls and booked excursions for them to enjoy. There are so many activities to pick from when you are on the ship to make time pass by until the next port of call. We really enjoyed the whole experience of the Chefs Table and would highly recommend it! We were sad to miss our last port of call Gand Turks due to mechanical issues and leaving San Juan 6 hours later than we should have left. Over all it was a great time and action with my sisters.

The destinations were excellent. The ship has been used/abused. It had one more trip before it goes in dry dock for refurbishing. It should have gone in to dry dock long ago...
