    we have never been on a cruise so our whole family decided to go on one ,the cruise was fun but when we arrived at the bahamas it was very complicated to get off the ship on the 3rd floor needed to be marked better also took so long getting off the boat at the end they announced on the speaker for decks 11 and 7 to exit ,when we got in the hall way on deck they told us if we put our bag out by the door then we had to wait so 200 people went by us then they told us to go to level 9 and wait for 1 hour finally they called our zone 10 what a mess then when we went through customs they was taking oranges and banannas out of peoples bags and purses that was from the ship so we saw a line that they wasn’t so we went under the rope and he was so nice just checed our i.d. and said come on through ,we was told that the ft lauderdale port was so much better .another thing was we called and asked if we could bring a small fan from home and they said if if was packed in our bags we could so when we got on ship they brought our bags and ,no fan they took it but my son had his fan and he was in the room next to me same kind of fan ,your rules are very confusing you need to give people a sheet of do’s and don’ts other than that the cruise was great service was great the food was bland anyway just thought you should know oh yeah no fountian soda’s ?only tea and lemonade to drink

      Hmmmmm…..sounds like you would be better off to go camping at the creek than to go on a cruise. It takes a certain amount of class to actually function in a public setting.

      Elvis Irvan, I have been on four Carnival cruises and all have been very good. The thing about customs is that no one is suppose to bring fruit into the USA and for the drinks, they do have soda pop, it’s just that you’ll have to pay for that. It’s the same with the alcoholic drinks. I just don’t drink either of those and am happy with the juice, tea and lemonade. Some people are just more picky then others. Not everything can be free.

    Im glad that carnival cruise lines is such a success. I am one of the original crew members. of the very first cruise . on the Madi Gras,the carnival and the festival .Boy did we struggle to get things going in those days. Seem like every cruise some thing would go wrong. But the old man hang in there with carnival . And it has paid off.
