Carnival Sensation

January 2013 - Carnival Sensation to Caribbean - Bahamas

Worst Cruise, Worst followup by Corporate

We take between 3 and 5 cruises a year. Including all of the off brands and "free" timeshare sales cruises, this ranks lowest. We booked 8 cabins, the reservations were not grouped together. Many thanks to the hard working staff at the port for getting most of us together, but no group boarding pics. Our dinner reservations were for early seating, surprise!, they are spread all over all 3 seatings, can't get early seating had to wait up to 50 minutes to get into dinner together. Staff on board the ship has no idea what a "Carnival Stockholder" is nor what they are entitled to. Staff on board the ship has no idea what a "Carnival Cruise Certificate" is or how it's supposed to work. Don't want to go to the lifeboat drill? No problem! You can sleep right through it. Now the best part, the follow up. We sent a registered letter to The President of Carnival, did he or any of his staff follow up? NOPE! Instead he delegated it to customer service. Did the rep know what a "Carnival Stockholder" was? Sortof but not really. Did she know what they are entitled to? NOPE! Did she know how a "Carnival Cruise certificate" works? NOPE! Stupider than the people on the ship. Its hard to soar like an Eagle when you're led by an idiot! So it's no wonder the problem at the top has been replaced.

Carnival Spirit

September 2012 - Carnival Spirit to South Pacific - Australia

GREAT!

This ship is well organized, spotless and everything is done with a smile. It was one of our best cruises ever. We will go on this ship again when we visit Australia. To be able to see Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora and Fiji all in one trip was great. Tahiti was a bit of a disappointment, vandalism, grafitti and junk cars all over the place, rather like the "Detroit of The Pacific". All the beautiful resorts are closed, but at least we got to see it. Bora Bora has the most beautiful torquoise water. And the welcome into Sydney Harbour, well it just wasn't like anything I've ever experienced.

Carnival Spirit

September 2012 - Carnival Spirit to Hawaii

Best way to see Hawaii

The ship and crew are excellent. Thanks to Patrick in photos for taking some of the greatest pictures we've ever had. He happened to be on some of shore excursions and we got some of those great cruise ship photos at some spectacular backdrops.

Carnival Fascination

September 2011 - Carnival Fascination to Caribbean - Bahamas

Nice weekend cruise

We like Fascination, food is good, service is good, cabin is clean and entertainment is excellent as always on Carnival. There really isn't much to see in Freeport, but we haven't been there much so we took a tour. Nassau has a lot to see and do. If you haven't been there take a tour of the island see Cable Beach, Downtown, Pardise Island and some of the nice estates along the shore. The Cruise Terminal there is a mess considering the number of ships that go there and the money they pay in fees to dock. The Nassau officials should go check out Cozumel and then be ashamed of themselves for allowing it to look this way. But for a short cruise it's fine.
