About kdlovescruising

Have cruised since 1997 with family and friends. I try to do at least 1 cruise each year. One of the best ways to relax.



kdlovescruising's Past Cruises

Carnival Glory

November 2016 - Carnival Glory to Caribbean - Western

Thanksgiving Glory

My family and I did our annual Thanksgiving cruise on the Glory.  Overall had a good time.  The Glory is an older ship and is in need of some updating.  The service was very good with the exception Guest Services on the last day of the cruise.  Understaffed and waited in line for 50 minutes.  I must comment that the cruise director (Saffie) was wonderful.  She had a lot of energy and really kept the activities upbeat and fun.

The food was fine, not excellent but not bad.  I did eat in the specialty steakhouse and that was excellent. The productions shows were just okay, however the live bands were very good.

Enjoyed the cruise ports.  In Cayman did the Turtle FarmHappy.  Roatan, Honduras we zip linedBig Smile.  Belize, it was rainy and so my daughter and I stayed within the local port area.  We tried local food and it was delicious.  Some of my family members did a city tour and said it was good.  Cozumel, been there many times but I still get off and venture downtown.  

Although we had a good time, I definitely prefer the bigger and newer ships.

MSC Divina

July 2016 - MSC Divina to Caribbean - Bahamas

Great Value

I sailed on the Divina on the 3 night Bahamas cruise for 4th of July and had a good time.  My family and I enjoyed ourselves and really had no major complaints.  The ship is beautiful and kept very clean.  I was disappointed in some of the crew/staff interactions.  They are not nearly as friendly as the crew on other ships I've sailed (Carnival, Royal Caribbean, NCL).  Not many smiling faces, they appeared "aloof". Bar service was slow at times.  I loved that at night they had live music playing in all the lounges.  The disco was also great, the DJ kept the dance floor full.  The food in the buffet was better than I expected.  My only complaint regarding the buffet was that the tables weren't cleared timely.  Dinner in the MDR was good.  The portions were small but that was fine with me.  Didn't leave the dining room overly stuffed.  The desserts were delicious. 

The photo area needs to be upgraded to the portfolio system used on other cruise lines as this would eliminate the frustrating task of looking for your pictures. The casino area is smaller than expected for a large ship.  They're were also no Craps tables.

This was only a 3 night cruise but would be willing to try it for a 7 night sailing.
