Grand Princess

March 2017 - Grand Princess to Coastal - West Coast

Best cruise so far

Met so many wonderful people, both passengers and crew members.  Embarkation and disembarktion were both speedy and efficient.  Even the muster drill wasn't too bad. 

 

Room attendant Ricardo is outstanding.  Shows I enjoyed the most were "British Invasion" and the illusionist.  The Crown Grill was outstanding.  I agree with many others about Sabitini's, skip it.  Service in both restaurants is outstanding but food in Sabitini's wasn't so good.  

 

Spent a lot of time in Explorer's Lounge making friends with one of the bar maids there.  (One reason out of many that this was the best cruise so far for me.)  I had a wonderful week aboard and on shore excursions.  I have nothing negative to say about this cruise.

Carnival Inspiration

January 2017 - Carnival Inspiration to Mexico

Wonderful cruise

I thought I had written a review already but the website asked for one when I logged in this time.  I've only done five cruises so far and over all this was my favorite.  The only negative was the long line for the dining room which I didn't feel like standing in.  The buffet and Guy's Burger were just fine with me.  Everything else was great.  Outstanding crew, funny comedy shows, friendly fellow passengers, comfortable/relaxing room, and a fun shore excursion.  This is the only cruise so far where I didn't meet a crew member with a sour attitude.  I have to mention our cruise director, I think her name is Dee.  She was a bundle of energy.  I loved how she lead the Mardi Gras party dancing on the bar counter.   I hope to do another winter get away on either the Inspiration or Imagination out of Long Beach next winter.

JCOAKML's Tips

Grand Princess Grand Princess - Watch out for those stairs in rear on deck 7. Go from 7 to 6 back there and you'll be at a dead end. You'll have to go right back up to deck 7 to get anywhere. Made that mistake three times including the last night of the cruise.
Carnival Inspiration Carnival Inspiration - If you are going to sail on Inspiration for the first time I suggest studying the deck plan carefully before boarding. I had a hard time finding my room (E211) since there is a dead end in the middle of the ship and one needs to go to the sides in order to continue to the rear cabins.
