Our son and fiancee are planning this wedding with #Carnival Cruise Lines and already they've had several problems arise. Three weeks before the wedding the Consultant is now calling to inform them there are other charges that were not covered in the original price quote. They were told, on several occasions, that sailing guests were included in the Exclusive Package since they were already paying to cruise - now they want an additional $2800+/- for those guests. Even though we provided an email where they only mention the charge for the non-sailing guest and clearly state that sailing guest are included, they are not willing to make adjustments or absorb part of the cost....this is already not a good start!! Seems like #Carnival is "double dipping" by charging the guests plus charging the Bride/Groom - doesn't seem right!!

We have cruised with Carnival on numerous occasions, as has our son, his fiancee, our daughters, their spouses, grandchildren, our siblings, etc. and we really expected better of them - shame on us for having such expectations!

I HAD MY WEDDING ON THE SPLENDOR CARNIVAL CRUISE SHIP. THE WEDDING PLANNER NAMED AYSHA SHOULD BE REPLACED!!! I AM STILL WAITING TO HEAR FROM CARNIVAL. AYSHA COULD NOT EVEN PPLAY THE WEDDING SONG. I WAITED FOR OVER 15 MINUTES TO MARCH BECAUSE THE GIRLS COULD NOT GET THE SONG TO PLAY. AYSHA LOST MY LUGGAGE AND ALSO SENT MY FAMILY TO EAT ON THE 9TH FLOOR (BUFFET) WHILE THE CEREMONY WAS GOING ON... I PAID FOR THIS NOT AYSHA... POOR HANDLING.. I HAVE A VIDEO SHOWING PROOF. IF YOU CHOOSE A DJ PLEASE CHOOSE DJ FOCUS. DJ ELEKTRA SUCKS!!!

We went on Carnival for our honeymoon and it was the best trip ever. We cruised on Carnival Victory to the Southern Caribbean. We had soo much fun. The food is constant and delicious. The dinners were fun with the great staff. Expect to pay more for drinks but you are on vacation right? So what does it matter? Live it up! :)

We loved that there were so many options for the excursions at each port. We wish we could have done more. Definitely sign up for the excursions before you go on the cruise. You can pay for them online and that made it easier for us, plus it guarantees you to get in the excursion. We did have one excursion have to get cancelled because of something that was wrong with the boat we were supposed to go on. Not a problem though, they called us and we got to go down to the desk and pick out a new trip.

Our rooms were always cleaned very nicely. There was always a cute towel animal when we came back from dinner. My favorite was the monkey hanging from the tv.

If you are looking for an affordable way to enjoy each other (and family), have fun, and have great experiences I would totally recommend Carnival. We are planning our next cruise now and I can't wait.

Used carnival cruise lines for a seven day cruise that stopped in key west florida for our wedding ceremony. Ship was full of geriatric community, most of the activities were geared towards them. The activities that we did participate in were ridiculously expensive. It costed 20.00 for one BINGO card, 8.00 for a mixed drink, 1.75 for a 12oz canned soda. Majority of the food was buffet style. The desserts from dinner were put out on a buffet for the nighttime. I was not impressed with the quality of food at all. We did have a wonderful crew on board. Majority had thick accents, and I saw one american that was part of the crew. The cruise line is definitely making money. We could not get a detailed description of our particular ship prior to the cruise date, so we only knew random things that our travel company could tell us.

The wedding (40 people on a boat out of galveston) cost much much less than a wedding on-shore would have. Thee were fewer choices for catering and events, but everything was beautiful!

Great way to spend the honeymoon. Note to others, get the trip insurance it came in handy when my asthma and allergies sent me to the medic several time while I was on the boat and I didnt have medical insurance.

We loved our wedding!! here is the riveiw i wrote to Carnival :

Sasha,

I just want to thank you so much for helping with all the arrangements. We had a blast and the wedding turned out WONDERFULL! We loved everything and it turned out beautifully. Everything went smoothly and I didn't have to worries about to much. I had a blast and so did all my guests. It has been almost a month since the wedding and we still have people talking about how beautiful it was and how well put together everything was. We even had people that have just seen pictures tell us how beautiful the wedding and everything was. Thank you so much to yourself and Carnival for making our wedding day so wonderful!

Thank You,
Jessica Elzy

Carnival Cruise Lines (the Fun Ship) was not the best choice for our honeymoon. Our options were limited because of our travel dates so we went with them.

It's been a while since I've cruised and it will be a while before I do it again. In general, things are just not very clean. They try really hard but we had to have our sheets redone several times because of hair and other "things" on them that did not belong to us.

As honeymooners, we weren't in for all the "fun ship" activities, which is no reflection on them. But for what we did take part in, the attention to detail was just not there.

MY HUSBAND AND I ALONG WITH 6 OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS AND FRIENDS TOOK OFF ON A CRUISE OUT OF GALVESTON THE NEXT MORNING. IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE AND WE WOULDN'T HAVE TRADED IT FOR ANYTHING. THE MORE PEOPLE THAT GO THE MORE FUN IT IS, EVEN ON YOUR HONEYMOON! THEY HAD A NEWLYWED GAME ONE DAY FOR ENTERTAINMENT. THE DAY AFTER WE BOARDED THE SHIP WE FOUND CHAMPAGNE, FLUTES AND FLOWERS HAD BEEN DELIVERED TO OUR ROOM. ALL THE STAFF WERE EXCELLENT AND VERY COURTEOUS. WE PLAN TO GO ON ANOTHER CRUISE SOON!

Carnival Cruises was not as accomodating and flexible as I had hoped. So if you want to plan a wedding with all the bells and whistles, a cruise is not the way to go. Regardless, my guests had a really great week on the cruise.

We had our wedding on Carnival Cruise Line's Paradise located in Long Beach, CA. Overall, I would definitely recommend them for this type of wedding. We wanted something small and different, yet still elegant. They took care of almost everything, except the invitations. The flowers were beautiful and exactly like the picture I emailed the coordinator. The venue is definitely beautiful and having a wedding on the boat has a really retro feel. Customs was a little difficult to get through and there was a delay getting started, but that is out of their control. The reception was in a very elegant lounge-like room. We elected to have a piano man as our music, and have a buffet and cocktails. Everyone was really impressed with the food and especially the cake. Another thing I was very impressed with was that they saved our left-over cake and every morning on the cruise it was delivered to our room in the morning with champagne. The only thing I think could be improved would be the photography. It was good, but the snapshots looked like snapshots guests would take. Not too focused or lit properly. Granted I'm a photographer, so I tend to be a little hypercritical. We are very happy with the service and the level of professionalism that they provided. And they really do take care of almost everything for you. I highly recommend.

Ceremony was well planned and accomodations were beautiful. The price for ceremony and reception and cruise was a deal. The food at the reception was professionally done. It was both beautiful and tasty. Cake was also wonderful. They provided everything. Would renew my vows on the same cruise.
