Wonderful weekend getaway

Dec 9th, 2018

It was a great weekend getaway. We did not get off the ship while we were on port. We really enjoyed the alchemy bar. The staff was awesome all the way around.

Pretty worn out ship. Took our 4 year old with us and we all had a blast. Slodes and splash pad weren't that busy. Although I was not impressed with the buffet food. We at at guys burger joint and blue iguana every day!! Best food on the ship. Crew was just amazing to our son. Camp ocean was well worth it and our son had so much fun there.

It sucked! Ship is old, Food wasn't that great and crew's attitude was poor and guest services.!!

So-so Baja cruise

Dec 8th, 2018

This was our first cruise and we'd never do this particular cruise again. Food was mediocre and Ensenada was a total dump.

The ship is an older ship, but still nice and the staff was courteous and great. I recommend this cruise for those that are first time cruisers or those who live near Long Beach and just want a short getaway for the weekend.

The ship was small but nice. It was cooler weather but we were still able to enjoy activities and entertainment on the ship. It was kept clean by the awesome staff. Casino is tight.

our room attendant (Sara) was the best yet after 8 cruises with various cruise lines. Our room was always serviced exactly as requested! EXACTLY! She was amazing!

First cruise and I’ll never sail Carnival again.

Dec 4th, 2018

This was my first cruise. I was warned about carnival. So many negatives about this trip to list. TOO many. What a ****** cruise. Diana and Rubria saved it for us by treating our sons so well. Otherwise, I’d be telling anyone who would listen to NEVER waste their money or time with this cruise line. $2,000 spent for 3 nights on a horrible cruise. Be ashamed of yourselves, Carnival. Thievery.
