Horrible stench and flooded suite

We were excited to sail on one of Carnival's newest ships but the maintenance issues and poor guest service left us extremely disappointed. First, we paid the additional fee for priority boarding. When we arrived ...

Good experience overall, but Carnival's newest ship needs a lot of work.

This was our 7th annual New Years Cruise with Carnival. We were excited to be on a new boat, and were looking forward to our trip. Although overall we had a great experience, Carnival Panorama seemed to try very ...

Disappointed! Carnival’s standards and quality are sinking fast!

My husband and I chose Carnival for our honeymoon cruise. This was my 5th cruise with Carnival. After this one, we most likely won’t choose it again. The worst part was other passengers who were loud and ...

Seriously Overrated

The rating is based on several Carnival cruises. This ship was the biggest disappointment in the Carnival Fleet. First, if you over 90, this is your ship. If your only cruising to become intoxicated, this is your ...

Do something else with your money.

Where to start... 1. Lines, be ready to wait in a lot of them. From dining, boarding and getting off the ship you will spend 10-15% of your awake time standing in some kind of damn line. Also be prepared to have ...

Just below average with some highlights

1) The ship: This is an old ship, pretty run down. The decor though is charming, in a kinda old world Titanic/Tiffany style. The best thing was the lighting and the quaint corners. 2) The dining experience: ...
