The Carnival Magic was NOT that Magical!

First and foremost let me say that Carnival has a automatic 18% tipping system built in that you can dispute at guest services but is very hard to do. Here is the issue I have with it. I may be traditional but in my ...

Panorama cruise

We chose this ship because it was a new ship with 3 hours by flight. We were very excited about the fun amenities. Getting on the ship was ok. Getting off the ship was horribly long and painful. We had hoped ...

Decent first time cruise

Starting off on a positive note, it is evident the culture on this ship is focused around excellent service. Somewhere between 95-99% of the staff is incredible at their job. The cabin I stayed in seemed very ...

Some good things, some just ok things

We chose this cruise because it was the same itinerary from the same port we took on our honeymoon 25 years ago. Embarkation/Debarkation were both very smooth. Quickest on/off the boat we have had. Carnival's new ...
