Review for Carnival Panorama to Mexican Riviera

To start, embarkation was not all that great. We had a 10:30 arrival time. When we arrived I provided our paper boarding passes and was immediately given an attitude because they were printed 2-sided, we had to wait for a supervisor to come and print us new ones. Testing for the little ones went smoothly, after the results were ready we were transferred over to the main check-in area. Once we were ...

I was worried about Covid-19 before we got on board the ship. The biggest hassle for my wife and i was getting the results back from the lab for the Covid- 19 test 3 days before the ship departed. We ended paying $100 each to a testing center to have our Covid-19 required PCR tests, guaranteed to receive the results back the next day before 7 pm. The food was awesome! The Carnival Panorama is ...

Great overall experience. Kyndall Fire was an awesome cruise director and kept things fun. Fun was Carnival typical. Staff on the ship was friendliest and most welcoming of any cruise I have been on - they went out of their way to engage and say hi, etc. Room was well kept. Servers in main dining room very efficient and attentive. Entertainment was good. Loved Allure of the Seas electric ...

All of the important parts of this cruise were great: embarkation and debarkation were fast and easy, weather was hot and mostly sunny, all the ports were open, the food was nice as always, and the service was excellent. We had an aft balcony cabin (#7465 - worth the small added cost for the extra space) and our steward was attentive and genuinely friendly. The new shows are wonderful, the double ...

As I write all this, I tend to just keep adding as I go. Not as organized as categories, but it gets the job done. If I waited to get home probably would not do it. Our arriving time was for 1030-1100, so we arrived at 1015. Did not see any people getting off ship. After one hour I Googled the ship, on the Long Beach page, “Panorama delayed due to technical issues.” I did not receive any text ...

My Return To The Ocean & My Honey's First Cruise

From the time we arrived at the port, the excitement stayed with the entire Cruise. I've been on almost every major cruise line and my new hubby had never cruised so this was a real treat to show him why I love to cruise. Embarkation compared to the past was quicker and streamlined and the Port of Galveston Staff are all 5 Star! Our balcony on deck 11 was perfect and Conrad the cabin ...

Our kids took this cruise in 2019. They wanted us to go this time. We got a good deal on the price. The itinerary included Cozumel, Roatan Island and Belize. We also liked the choices of food and onboard activities. We got off of the ship at all three ports. At Roatan Island (by Honduras), Carnival did a great job of ensuring that the place was conducive to a fun day. The water was warm and ...

Lax Covid protocols. Bland food/entertainment. Had its pluses, though.

Oh my. Where to begin. Hmm. Let’s start with the boarding process. Embarkation was so poorly planned (regardless of the ship being late). Little to no signage. Onsite staff didn’t have answers… or had conflicting ones (one said to come back; the other said to stay). We had an 11AM check-in time and were told to come back at 2PM. We came back at 1PM (to be safe) and there were no clear signs of ...

We sailed Back-2-Back on the Carnival Breeze from Galveston on 26 Aug to 4 Sept. We had a balcony (12042) on the 12th Deck, a great location close to the pool, Serenity area and Cloud 9 Spa, and the Dive-In movies. The balcony is not covered. Your cabin is serviced only once a day, ice is filled twice a day. The virtual muster drill is very easy, and the ship is beautiful. Traveling with ...

My wife and I are regular cruisers... other thst 2020, we go on at least 1, if not two cruises per year. We also prefer 10 to 16 day cruises. So when my wife's friend asked us to join her on her first cruise to Alaska, we said yes. Then she said it was on Carnival. We did some research and decided we would give them another try. We have had some TERRIBLE experiences on Carnival, and ...
