Our Best Cruise Experience Out of Many

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 ...

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 ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

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 ...

My wife forced me into this again but I was pleasantly surprised of how amazing 99% of the crew is so far. However one bartender hassled my wife over a bottle of water. She’s gold almost platinum and it astounds me how one person could put an unnecessary scar on your business. Seems to me clean drinking water is essential. She even has an unlimited drink card. She will not complain because she ...

This was the first Carnival Ship to sail and the experience was great. The ONLY issue that we had was the lack of tablecloths in the main dinning rooms. The bare brown tables looked very cheap and tacky without the clean white tablecloths. The biggest issue with the missing tablecloths was that the drink glasses on the table would sweat and the water caused the glasses to slide across the table ...

This was our first premier Casino cruise and our 8th Carnival cruise in general. Husband was very excited. But I knew that meant he was going to spend much of his time in the Casino so I brought my grandkids for a whole new level of fun. They were 11 years old and 13 years old. Loved all the extra perks of the Premier cruise such as: #1 Gifts in the cabin every few days. #2 Special ...

Spoiler Alert: Ignore EVERYTHING negative you have read about the Vista so far. Based on our most recent trip none of the negativity is true and the naysayers are just complaining because they really don’t know how to appreciate a good cruise when they’re on one! This was our second time on the Vista, third cruise on Carnival. Once again, Carnival exceeded our expectations and delivered an ...

Terrible Havana Experience

We were on the February 8, 2020 Sailing of the Vista, and I can’t tell you how disappointed I am in how much I did *not* enjoy the Havana experience this year. We sailed the Carnival Vista in the Havana area this time last year and were so impressed I booked the same area for this year in a Havana Suite and for 2021 in a Havana Cabana and 2022 in a Havana Suite. I’ve spent the past year on the ...

I have taken 6 Carnival cruises since 2011. My wife is a platinum member so our embarkation and debarkation were fast and nice. Our room was average, the room stewards were friendly. We found an unopened yogurt in our fridge. Our neighbors found dirty underwear in their cabin. The buffets never seemed to be open and the free restaurants always had a long lines. The carnival app never worked right. ...

We drove to the Port as we are from the Midwest. We parked at Lighthouse parking and have the last few times we have sailed from Galveston. It is much smaller, but I've never had to wait a long time for a shuttle. We purchased Faster to the Fun and went from the parking shuttle to boarding in under 20 minutes. Honestly, if we didn't want to get off the ship quickly, we wouldn't have needed to ...
