Carnival Overview

  • These are known as the "fun ships" for a reason. If you are looking for a quite, relaxing and elegant cruise, Carnival may not be for you. They are good for people looking for a lively entertainment team, good kids clubs (they have a partnership with Dr Seuss and they are the only kids clubs that will accept 2 year olds for free!)

  • They will appeal mostly to a younger crowd looking to "party" or to families. Their newest ships, the Carnival Horizon, Magic, Vista, and Breeze have amazing activities onboard.

  • Food is mediocre but has decent choices. Guys Burgers is very popular on Carnival

  • Carnival offers some interesting itineraries at reasonable price points. They have a lot of itineraries with great ports and very few sea days.

  • Carnival will not appeal to the older crowd looking for an elegant and relaxing experience

  • Although their entertainment team puts on a lot of fun activities throughout the day, I don't find their shows to be of as high a quality as Royal Caribbean or even Norwegian

  • Your cruise fare includes all meals, comedy shows and entertainment, waterslides at Carnival Waterworks Onboard Water parks, kids clubs and programming for ages 2-17, fitness center (classes cost extra $), 24 hour pizzeria, continental breakfast room service, 24 hour soft serve ice cream and frozen yogurt, tap water, lemonade, iced tea, hot chocolate and regular coffee and tea. You will pay extra for Dr Seuss breakfast, room service other than continental breakfast, alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks other than free choices, spa treatments, fitness classes, the csino, arcade, internet, shore excursions, mandatory gratuities
