 Carnival Jubilee

Carnival Jubilee has been retired and is no longer in service

Built in 1986 as Carnival's second Holiday-class ship, Jubilee used to be deployed on the line's exotic itineraries such as the Panama Canal and Alaska. But when the brand-new Carnival Spirit entered service in early 2001, Jubilee was based in Tampa, and later in Galveston, for year-round short cruises to the Western Caribbean.

    I was on board the Jubilee with 14 other family members (13 1st time cruisers) from Galveston on Sept 21st. I was appalled with how Carnival handled this situation. The entire more

    All I can say is thank goodness I survived the "Cruise from Hell". I just got off the Jubilee yesterday. It was the most miserable 5 days ever! We left Galveston sailing toward more

  • Tammy 34 First Cruise Western Caribbean

    This was a great time. I wish my husband and I could have took the room steward, Sheing, home with us. He always knew when we were out and we would come back to a turned down bed more

  • Jessica 15 12 Western Caribbean

    This is the 12th cruise I have been on and I would say that this is one of the worst boat that I have been on. The crew were rude to all the young adults onboard the boat. They would more

  • Susan 50 First Cruise Tampa-Cayman-Cozumel

    Our first cruise. Having read positive and negative reviews of this ship, we were open for anything. First positive was roomy cabin size. Had an outside cabin middle front of ship on more

  • Ledra Davis 30 3 Cozumel, Grand Cayman

    This was my third Carnival Cruise, so possibly my expectations were a little high. However, I did not feel that the cruise lived up to my expectations at all. Yes, there was fun involved, more

  • MIke 43 First Cruise Grand Cayman, Cozumel

    – Whew, a 3am wake up call for a 6:15am flight to start our trip to Tampa! Next time, we will definitely go to the port city the night before so that we will be well rested more

  • Linda 46 3 Tampa, Key West, Cozumel

    After reading horrible reviews on this ship, I expected nothing from this 5 day, 4-night cruise. I am happy to say that it was a wonderful cruise and my husband and 2 girls, ages 8 more

  • Tim 30 1 Western Caribbean

    There was only two redeeming values about this experience-the formal dinners and getting off this prison ship. There were excessive lines for everything on this ship-embarkation, more

Excerpts from Carnival's Website about Carnival Jubilee

Our 4 and 5 day "Fun from Texas" getaways are some of our most popular sailings. Sail from Galveston on a 4 day cruise leaving on Thursday and returning on Monday. It's the perfect long weekend! Our 5 day sailings depart on Mondays and Saturdays and take you to Calica and Cozumel. Either cruise is an opportunity to get away from the ordinary for a few days and immerse yourself in the beauty of Mexico. Let us take you there in the intimate and pampering atmosphere of the Jubilee.
