What is your favorite ship?

Been on 14 Carnival ships  ,,Breeze hands down no contest ,The best of the fleet 

 

If it was no contest, everyone would say Breeze. 😅  Breeze isn’t even the best Dream class ship, that title belongs to Magic. But favorite ship is very subjective.

Spirit class - The Legend

 

Take a moment to do the math.  Number of tons of water displacement divided by number of passengers.  This gives you a rough idea of how big and uncrowded the ship will seem to you.  The Spirit class wins, hands down.

Mine is the Magic (or Breeze) and my Wife's is the Sunshine. We liked the Liberty a lot as well.

Out of 13 so far, the Vista comes in #1. We have the Breeze and Horizon booked, we'll see what happens. :)

From my personal observations on both Vista and Horizon, and from reading countless reviews on this and other websites, the Havana pool area rarely gets crowded. Most comments are just the opposite, saying how nice and quiet the Havana area was on their cruise.  My guess is Carnival noticed the same thing when deciding the size of the Havana area on Mardi Gras. 

Smaller pool than on the Vista Class ships, the omission of the two hot tubs and the relocation from aft with a great view to being a second thought on the starboard side.

1 Vista class

2 Dream class

3 Conquest class

4 Fantasy class

5 Spirit class

I would put Dream Class 1 and Vista 2

 

The Sunshine for me is 3 - I agree that Spirit is last (sailed the Miracle is Dec and just did not like the layout compared to the other ships)

Interesting how drastically different people can view ships. I love the layout of Spirit class ships. I think they are by far the best designed ships in Carnival’s current fleet. The only negative in my book is they are smaller ships, so they don’t have all the amenities found on Carnival’s larger ships.

I concur. You can walk from the front of the ship to the back on ANY deck. They never feel crowded, and I have sailed on them Spring break,  New Year's,  and Journeys cruises. Plus, they have the best Serenity areas in the fleet. 😀

Breeze with Magic a close second. I hate that the Breeze had to leave Galveston. Sailing Vista but not expecting to be wowed like before. They shrunk too many areas to make room for the pricey Havana area, including the spa area. Breeze had a fantastic spa!

It IS interesting that folks have very differing views.  So far Magic is probably my favorite but I really like Sunshine while other folks do not.  All my Conquest class boats have been 'fine'.  My wife disliked Miracle (she still refers to the 'grapes') while I liked the Spirit class quite a bit.

Totally agree with you--Breeze and Magic.  (Going on the Dream for the first time in September)  My last cruise was on the Vista and, yes, some areas are too small.  Really don't like the movable chairs in the main showroom.  People scoot their chairs until you have no room for your legs.

Vista and Dream class ships, followed by Conquest class.  I stopped sailing Fantasy class ships a dozen years ago because I felt they were old back then.

 

We're doing a Legend sailing in June 2020, but only because it is going to Norway for 9 nights.

Our favorite is the Spirit class of ships, we love the Pride.  It has the best floor plans.  We are on our 10th Pride cruise in September.

Gotta be the Horizon. We're really looking forward to a Conquest sailing in April, but after several other Carnival cruises we both would say Horizon !

We like the Conquest class ships, especially the Glory. The Glory was our favorite cruise, the most upbeat, great cruise director, and all the employees were outstanding !!

I'm not going to lie, yall have me looking up cruises on the Magic right now. Everyone seems to love her! I have a feeling Horizon will be my favorite ship (so far) of the very few I've been on. I'll report back in a month 😉

I really do like the Dream (and was disappointed when she left New Orleans, a fun port from which to embark!).  Also am a fan of Carnival's Legend and Conquest.

Great question! I really liked my Dream cruise overall; but another favorite is the Pride. Looking forward to the Fantasy this fall and the Magic next year.

I like Conquest Class, and the Conquest in particular.  Weirdly, I like how the Conquest is decorated with the art nouveau and impressionism.  But I'm trying the Havana area on Panorama in February.

 

Yes, we enjoy the Conquest class too.   And because we've just happened to be on the Conquest more than the others, it feels like home.

We love the conquest too.  And we love the design.  It is over the top but it works.
