Carnival Glory

October 2015 - Carnival Glory to Caribbean - Western

Good value and family fun

Over all with a large group of family it all turns out to be a worth while trip. Carnival is always more fun than other ship lines. The live music is every where, the pool games are fun to watch and the staff are generally friendly. The food always takes a turn for the worst in the end of the trip but over all the food was okay but the fine dining in the steak house was super. Suites are a good size for a family of 4 and bath room and vanity area were great for the wife and kids. Ship is new and 5th floor lay out is dynamite. Always easy to find your group somewhere.

Norwegian Epic

February 2015 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Western

Family of 4 Beware

Overall we managed to survive but the family mini suite is nothing more that the regular balcony room with pop down beds (if you can call them that). They should not sell this as a SUITE by any stretch of the imagination. The layout of the room curving like an "S" made for a very uncomfortable feel and the toilet and shower at the cabin door was nothing more than terrible design. The slightly rounded bed at the head and the feet made it difficult for a person of even 5 10 feet to sleep without feet hanging over the bed and the couch was terrible to sit on as the back of the couch was also curved. When you pulled the couch out from the curved back, there was little room to walk by. Balcony was a nice size but there was not any comfort. Two metal chairs and rickety tables provided. Sadly the linen was not nice nor new and our room was never kept clean. The carpets where also filth.

Cruise was fun and evening entertainment kept us happy but bed time with kids was a nightmare. We got though the cruise but 7 days with the "SUITE" like that we will not go back on this ship and will be cautious of their fleet.

Carnival Breeze

March 2014 - Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Southern

Not that amazing....

It was okay but nothing amazing and the ship, whilst new, was styled in the same old Carnival layout. Nothing mind-blowing. It was CARINVAL FUN, however, for the most part the trip was mediocre. The Junior Suite was small as well and not like the staterooms on the mega ships.
