Originally when I booked my cruise wedding, I had a great experience with the staff over the phone but over the last six months, my opinion has really changed and I would not recommend a wedding with Carnival Cruise Lines.

One of the most frustrating pieces so far has been a lack of flexibility from the cruise line. Even if I am willing to pay for something to add on, they won't allow it. I have a large wedding party and 8 men are renting tuxedo rentals. I asked if I could buy food to be delivered to the room they are getting ready so they don't travel and end up going hours without food. I'm told no. All 8 of these men are paying to sail on this cruise and no one can even let me even buy them lunch so they can eat before the wedding in the room they are getting ready in?

I asked for the reception to be made longer because we have no non sailing guests and would be willing to pay more and I was told no.

I asked for the photographer to come to the room beforehand to take pictures of the wedding party and I was told the photographer has other commitments and they can't guarantee he/she will be there to do that. I plan on spending $3000 on their package (which is a lot when you compare a local photographer which would give me 8 hours of shooting and way more pictures) and I can't even get a photographer to come beforehand for sure?

It takes days for the wedding department to respond to emails most of the time. Sometimes I'm lucky and they respond the next day.

The prices for the flowers that I got when I signed the package went up and Carnival told me there is nothing they can do (even though the sheet they gave me shows a lower price).

Overall, just disappointing especially considering I have at least 50 guests sailing that they are profiting from. Perhaps when I have my wedding my opinion will change but right now, I can't say I would do this again if I could.

We booked a cruise through Carnival for our honeymoon and they could not have been more helpful! The woman i spoke to was so excited to hear all about my wedding and even booked the exact room I wanted! She explained all of the little insider tips for cruises and gave some great advice! If you are wanting to go on a cruise for your honeymoon, Carnival is the way to go!

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
