Mediocre by mcconnell7528

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We were on this ship 15 years ago and got a good deal on the cabin, that was the only reason we decided to book with Carnival again. We will NEVER go on another Carnival cruise again. Rates very poor with us when compared to other lines. We have been on over 50 cruises, 3 of which have been with Carnival and this was the final straw. We will stick with the the other lines, that we really like and don't mind paying to have a GREAT experience.

Fun get away by blue12rain

I can’t say enough about the wonderful staff! Our only real frustration was how loud it was in the hallway outside of our room. It was hard to sleep at night.

16th and FINAL Carnival Cruise by IslandBoy31

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

This was my 16th and final cruise on Carnival, they have shifted their focus on customer service, food quality, end entertainment, to go after the almighty dollar. I have also completed 5 Royal Caribbean and five Norwegian cruise, and both of those lines haven't forgotten about the customer.

Wouldnt do this cruise again by Ajflash

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I enjoy cruising I don't think 3 days is enough this was definitely the bottom of the barrel due to the low price. Many many families bachelorette parties guy weekend's at cetera I wanted something different. I didn't like the fact people brought their kids into the adult only areas all the time. To the adult only shows adult only games adult only areas.

worth it by jgerdes

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

we have been on approx 5 royal carribbean cruises before this one. must say that RC is a step above carnival, but i think it is justified because RC is also more expensive. we were a bit dazzled by the lack of friendliness of staff on board, most of the waiters when they were not looking at your direction were sad or frustraded and more than once we overheard without wanting it how main waiters treated their lower rank waiters in a bad way. very sad to see this. these people work hard every day with no vacation and always have to smile, treat them well ! other than that, good food, many activities, even though it is an older boat, more activities than you could ever participate in. Carnival boss: put more ping pong tables, one is not enough for 3700 passengers, i was not able to play a single match during the whole cruise. and have the cabin waiters clean the balcony also , not just the cabin. all else great, keep it up !

Fun Cruise, but got sick by crystalki

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise would've been perfect if it wasn't for my boyfriend getting sick. The Medic says he caught something going around indicated by many of the crew showing the same symptoms. We enjoyed the sit-down dinner service, adult spa section, and mini golf. We'll be looking for other cruise ships with more amenities like a basketball court and IMAX theater. Hopefully the evening shows are more professional.

Confusing for first time cruisers. Came home sick. by dcook974

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Was pretty lost on what to do, where to go, how our cards work because this was our first cruise. The balcony room was nice. However we both came home coughing, had nausea and sinus issues. Some say it's the air conditioning in the rooms. Some say it's from the ice in the drinks. I hope I can get my husband to cruise again!

Relaxing vacation by Banjaran

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

Overall it was a fun and relaxing experience. We were able to do things as a family and take a break from each other with plenty of activities for the kids to do on their own. One thing to be aware of is there is a lot of selling going on - they try to sell you photo packages, jewelry, watches, drinks, there were a couple of sessions in the gym where they tried to sell things as well. No pushy sales though. Plenty of entertainment and food. There's a casino on board as well. The Cruise director Chris was very energetic and entertaining. Overall it was a great experience.

Fun Holiday Getaway by cmd609

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

We enjoyed the overall experience. Food was mediocre at best but plentiful. Some of the dining experiences came with an additional charge. Don't bother buying the internet package as it is super slow. 3 of us traveled and we ended up spending an additional $1,000 with spa service, 1 drink package and all of the additional gratuities.

Fun Family Getaway by Darab

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

Overall this family of 2 adults and 2 teens had a good time. We booked this trip over Christmas at the last minute so took what we could get. The pros included comfortable room, excellent service, good food ( 24 hour options was a bonus for my always-hungry teens). The weather was cloudy, windy and cool most of the time, which the ship obviously could not control, but without the option of pool and other outdoor time, there were limited things to do during the day. My biggest complaint was lines, especially for food.

First and last cruise by gaddison99

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

It started out as a disaster (almost ten hour delay) and ruined the trip. Carnival refused to reimburse / or compensate for time, meals and beverage plans. We basically lost 1/3 of our cruise. Never again.

I feel so sorry for the family and for their loss. Carnival has my vote for doing the right thing and for keeping passengers informed. Thank you Carnival.

nightmare round trip by hardingbabe

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

It was chaotic and stressful. Then the guy committed suicide and things became confusing on top of chaotic and stressful. This was our first cruise and our first vacation my husband and I have gone on since getting married 9 years ago. This was not a pleasant experience I would want to repeat.

Fellow passengers were a bit WILD, caution if you are bringing kids. Nice ship, beautiful port, crew were friendly! Man overboard at end of trip, which made us end on a sad note.

worst cruise experience I have had by cbordea1

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

I had a cabin on the second deck and there was loud banging every night. On the way back to port we experienced an unfortunate incident that made me miss my flight, and I was unable to get home until a day later than planned. During that night I didn't get any sleep, because of the way the incident was handled on board. I was on a solo vacation that was much needed, now I am back only to feel like I need a vacation from my vacation. I have another trip planned with Carnival in April, and I am undecided if I will follow through with that trip.
