Past cruises

MSC Meraviglia

December 2019 - 7 Night Caribbean & Antilles (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on MSC Meraviglia

MSC Seaside

June 2019 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean & Bahamas (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on MSC Seaside

Celebrity Infinity

March 2019 - 4 Night Bahamas (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Infinity

I enjoyed it a lot with my Mom in this cruise. The only thing was the Persian Garden. I was disappointed 😞 There were only 3 saunas and 2 showers and the buttons were not even working properly. The Solarium and Thalassotherapy was not private at all and I thought it was only for the spa clientele. I should've done the tour first and then pay if it was worth it. Everywhere I saw it said $50 for 4days but I end up paying $93! I know for next time; do the tour first! Other than that; My Mom enjoyed her Bday cruise that's what it counts!!!πŸ’•

Carnival Sunshine

October 2018 - 5 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Sunshine

I was in this ship when it tilted. Horrible experience. I was in the dining room eating when suddenly I felt like I was going to fall backwards. That's when I noticed we were tilting. Ppl screaming and praying loud! I was so in shock I was mute, just looking around and trying to grasp of what was going on! I just couldn't believe it. We had to hold on onto the table if not we were going to fall all the way to the other end. They said it was a minute but it felt an eternity! That's when I grabbed my friend and ran out of there. Went to the room and grabbed the vests and ran upstairs to Lido deck. I didn't want to be stuck down there if the lights went off! We heard water coming down the elevators! Then we realized that was from the pool. So I felt it must've been one of the stabilizers. I slept that night on Lido deck bc I didn't to go to my room. After that I was a nervous wreck. The ship was rocking a lot after that throughout the whole trip. And would take a long time to get 'straight' from the side that tilted. They gave us $50 credit for the inconvenience, for nearly a heart attack. Never again. And this is MY opinion.

Harmony of the Seas

February 2018 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Harmony of the Seas

This is MY experience and MY opinion about Harmony. Great ship and great staff in MDR (Antonio) and housekeeping (Tri is the BEST!) But we felt not bigger is better. Nickle and Dime everything. Lots to do? So-so. Shopping stores are VERY expensive. Not like other RC ships. Photos? Expensive! Just 2 pics for $60? Don't want to sound cheap but why Harmony has to be more expensive from the smaller ships? Just asking. The cup: I think RC should do something about the cup. It is annoying that you have to carry the cup with you. Either you forget the cup and now you have to go back to your room or you might lose it. They don't have enough machines for the drinks. Only on the windjammer, Sorrento and mini bites (I asked the staff). For such a huge ship, they should have more! My brother said Oasis has way more machines. 2 at the windjammer and 1 was broken few times. The same breakfast every day. Yes. Every day. We were 3 different rooms. They charged ALL 3 rooms $29 for an item that it was supposed to be charged for only 1 room. My brother went to CS and it was deleted at once. It took 3 days with 3 different ppl to delete those charges from my account. Why? Beats me. Will I do Harmony again? No. I've done smaller RC ships and liked it better than Harmony. Once again, my experience and opinion. Other than thatπŸ˜‰had a great time with my family! Thanks!

Enchantment of the Seas

August 2015 - 4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Enchantment of the Seas

This was a last minute trip with my sister. It was her first. Our attendant was REALLY helpful and humble. He fixed my bed bc it had a like a "hole" under the mattress and he went out of his way and made it wayyy better. We was very attentive with us.. Our waitress!!! OMG! THE BEST! I've never had a waiter like her!!! She was my first waitress!! She knew what we liked. On the last night we came to eat kinda late bc of the show and and I told her that it was ok, we can go to another place to eat. She said just wait there, she went to ck with the chef and then she came with 4 different entrees for us to choose!! The dinning room was almost empty and she did all that for us!!! I gave her the biggest tip EVER and I spoke to the Maitre D' of how wonderful of employee he got!!! We Loved her!! The Best!!!❀❀❀

Costa Luminosa

February 2015 - 10 Night Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Costa Luminosa

Was my second time with Costa and what a difference from my first one. We were few of the passengers that spoke English so they sat us down with other passengers that knew English also. Mind you, I didn't care but never happened to me before. It was fate bc then the 8 of us would hang out the whole trip and we had a blast!! But, the other passengers were kind of rude. And they would push you! Elderly ppl too! The food was good but we had the same buffet breakfast for 10 days! I don't think I would do Costa again.. Mixed feelings...

Celebrity Century

May 2003 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Century

Century was my first cruise in 2004. Since then, I've fallen in love with Cruises. Didn't want to get off. By the time I got home, was planning for the next one. BUT, the night before my cruise I sprained my ankle REALLY bad that I end up with scrutches and had to rent a wheel chair bc I could hardly walk!!! But I was not going miss my cruise!! Once I was on the ship, the staff put my then bf to the side and started to push my wheel chair! When we were at the buffet,they would do the same. One would push me and the other would have my plate and ask me what I want!!! Talking about being spoiled!!! They would ask me every time how my ankle doing.. They spoiled me rotten! They were really nice. And the food?? Delicious!!! Staff, wonderful!! Century will always be my in my heart❀❀❀

Cruise tips

Port Canaveral, Florida

Why I can not read NONE of my reviews replies???? Nor did I receive messages that I have replies. Also, how can I leave a detailed review?? I see other ppl reviews and they are detailed. I don't get those options.

Cartagena, Colombia

LOVE IT! We went to Totumo Mud Volcano. The best! We had fun and mud up to our noses!πŸ˜„ Before heading to Totumo they took us around the city and bought some snacks. After Totumo, they took us to the beach and had lunch! The most delicious coconut rice I've ever had! REALLY nice personel! For USD 45 per person: - pick up from the port - return transportation in a private van to the Volcan Totumo - entrance fees and lunch - drop off at the port - English speaking guide: Ours was Evelyn Just in case you're planning to go, here's the info: Carlijn Grinwis Project Manager Office: +57 5 660 9128 Skype: +1 (347) 871 7997 Mobile: +57 304 671 4105 www.ticartagena.com carlijn@ticartagena.com facebook|@thisiscartagena
