Regal Princess

September 2016 - 4 days on Regal Princess

The Atlantic was a little rocky but the Regal Princess was Great!

This was our first transatlantic cruise.  We took it because we wanted to see Ireland and Scotland. This cruise not only stopped there but gave us some other wonderful ports at a reasonable price. 

 

We did not book a hotel in Copenhagen through Princess (that is where the cruise started) and I waited too long so I had a lot of trouble getting a room.  There were two international conferences that weekend so everything was taken.  I recommend you book hotel rooms as soon as you book your cruise.  We also had a great aft balcony but if you get sea sick at all, stay mid ship.

Carnival Paradise

September 2015 - 4 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Paradise

Great Family Weekend on Paraadise

Our family ranging in age from 67-7 months went on their first family cruise and we had a GREAT time!!!  We had three window rooms (I would not take a balcony with young children) right next to each other.  On night we used baby monitors while we stayed in an adult room and the children slept.  Our 3 year old loved Camp Carnival.  The 2 and 3 year olds along with parents and grandparents marched through the ship with the Dr. Seuss parade.  I just heard that  the 3year old is still chanting "Dr. Seuss on the loose"!

The dining room staff was excellent. After one night, they had the children's food ready for them when we entered the dining.  That kept them busy!

Pleasant time on an older ship

The ship was in good shape with an excellent staff. We were extremely disappointed with our cabin. We booked a Junior Suite and it was not even close to anything I would consider to be a suite!!!! It was a slightly larger balcony room. So save your money and do not book a junior suite on Sensation

"Not the Best"

The ship was average in decor but well maintained except for all the windows being covered with salt water stains. The people at the front desk were fine until one of us was seriously hurt and then not one of them would go out of their way to help us. In fact, they assured us that everything would be fine with our transportation voucher even though one of us was in a wheel chair but we ended up stranded on the dock in Dover and the staff at Norwegian Cruise Line did not care !!

If you have little ones...don't miss the Dr. Seuss parade and breakfast. The towel theater was also great!
