Star Pride

January 2017 - 7 Night Costa Rica & Panama Canal (Puerto Caldera To Colon) Cruise on Star Pride

Windstar Panama Canal Cruise

Many nice ports of call from Costa Rica to Colon Panama.  My favorite part was the actual transit through the Panama Canal.  It is simply amazing to watch large ships rise or descend through the locks.  The only hiccup was a 9 hour flight delay into Costa Rica from Houston, TX due to volcanic activity in Costa Rica which shut down the airport temporarily.

Carnival Sunshine

February 2016 - 8 Night Southern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Sunshine

Carnival Sunshine Feb. 5-13/2016

Overall, pleased with the cruise.  However, Carnivals dining room food leaves much to be desired.  We booked about 6 months in advance, we requested early seating for our party of 6.  We didn't receive early, your time or our entire groups seating.  It took 3 days and several tries to finally get our seating for 6 at 8:15 pm.  We requested early seating because one of our party is diabetic and she likes to be able to control when she eats on a regular time. 

 

The food was ok, but nothing to get excited about especially if you compare the food quality and variety to say Royal Caribbean Cruises.  The head waiter and asst. were wonderful, attentive and prompt.  The maître d was unmoved by our requests and very inattentive. 

 

This was our third Carnival Cruise, a disappointment from our others. 

 

The entertainment onboard was mediocre, however, the comedians were very good.

Carnival Victory

February 2015 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Victory

Carnival Legend

May 2014 - 7 Night Exotic Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Legend

Carnival Legend

We decided to cruise Carnival because of a great price for a balcony stateroom even though I felt that Carnival had a tarnished reputation.  The Legend is in great shape with a marvelous crew and staff.  The ports of call were great although Roatan Honduras (Carnivals Island retreat) you don't get to experience the Honduras, only some shopping and beach swimming.  There is the dolphin experience, but it is very expensive.  The food on board in the Truffles restaurant was very good, but not outstanding as I've found on Royal Caribbean cruises.  The ship shudders at certain speeds and isn't an issue unless you're trying to sleep and then is very noticeable.  The staff, particularly our room steward, was outstanding. Boarding and leaving the ship in Tampa was quick and streamlined.  We would definitely sail on the Legend again.

Adventure of the Seas

December 2013 - 7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan roundtrip) Cruise on Adventure of the Seas

7 Nights, Adventure of the Seas

One of several Royal Caribbean cruises we've taken, this one was the best of all.  Ship was clean, well maintained. Crew was excellent, particularly room steward and main dining waiters.  Ports of call were excellent with multiple tour options.

Jewel of the Seas

March 2012 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa roundtrip) Cruise on Jewel of the Seas

GoldRoyalCruise's Tips

Panama Canal Transit - Make sure to bring a camera, perhaps even one capable of time lapse photography to video the ships transiting a lock on the canal.
Colon, Panama - Actually did not spend any time in Colon so I have no real input on the city.
Carnival Legend Carnival Legend - Unicorn cafe has better food than in Truffles restaurant.
Adventure of the Seas Adventure of the Seas - Go to the main dining room for breakfast, much smaller crowds and faster service than in the Windjammer restaurant.
