We had a really good time on the cruise! It was very relaxing! I have read reviews criticizing the food and I do not understand it. Everything we had was good!

Celebrity Infinity

May 2017 - Celebrity Infinity to Panama Canal, Central America

A Great Trip

Just off  the 15 day Celebrity Infinity Canal cruise.  We had a super time and loved just about every minute.  Be sure to dine at Qsine and request Herbie as a server.  The food was great and Herbie is a riot,  The ship is beautiful but getting a little run down.  We had an Oceanview cabin 9000 and it was so spacious!  We slept like babies.  Wonderful waiters and cabin attendant.  Embarkation in Ft Lauderdale was fast and efficient but disembarkation in San Diego was a mess!  We took a couple of excursions and they were just OK.

Norwegian Jade

January 2017 - Norwegian Jade to Caribbean - Eastern

Wonderful 10 Days

We had a great time on our 10 day Caribbean cruise!  Our cabin attendant Jeanette was awesome.  Our cabin was made up by the time we came back from breakfast and turned down upon our return from dinner.  We loved having breakfast at The Great Outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine.  The entertainment was good but I have to say we have seen some of the shows before and wish they had some new offerings.  One other negative was the disrepair of the pool area but we were told the ship was going into dry dock in March so hopefully that will get some attention.  All in all we had a wonderful time!

Ruby Princess

October 2016 - Ruby Princess to Coastal - West Coast

Super Cruise

This was a great cruise.  We really have no complaints!  We chose an inside cabin and we were amazed at how large it was.  There was plenty of storage space also.  We met some wonderful crew members and loved the service in the restaurants and bars.  Our cabin attendant did an excellent job of making up our cabin twice a day.  Loved the Happy Hour in the Wheelhouse every one get one for a $1.  There was also the same deal offered at the Adagio in the evening.  The ports were good and we had more than enough time at each.  We have taken many cruises but this was our first Princess and we were very impressed with the whole experience.

Norwegian Dawn

January 2016 - Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - Western

Celebrity Silhouette

December 2015 - Celebrity Silhouette to Caribbean - Western

Beautiful pre holiday cruise!

The Celebrity Silhouette is a gorgeous ship.  It was decorated for Christmas and Hannakah and seemed so festive.  The entertainment was top notch and the aerial   artists  were breathtaking!  Usually inside cabin cruisers, we splurged on a veranda this time and it was well worth it!  The cabin was spacious and the bathroom the biggest we have ever had on a ship.  We had the beverage package also worth it!  Our cabin was on deck 7 and much to our delight right down the hall was The Hideaway.  It was a great place to go to read or relax overlooking the Atrium.  The best part was it was equipped with coffee and tea service.  Every morning I threw on my robe and went down to hall to get our coffee to enjoy on our veranda.  What a great bonus!  The crew was friendly and helpful.  There were many handicapped people cruising and I saw so many acts of kindness by the crew. Getting food, drinks, condiments, and helping in and out of elevators etc.  Our only complaint was we did not think the food on the dining room was very good.  The first 2 nights were OK but after that there were many strange foods on the menu we did not find appealing.  The every day menu of steak and broiled chicken got smaller and drier as the cruise went on. The food on the buffet was plentiful and good though.  The ports were great.  We especially loved the private island Labadee.  It was a tropical paradise.  All in all a great experience!  On to cruise 27!

Norwegian Jewel

November 2015 - Norwegian Jewel to Mexico

Norwegian Sun

October 2015 - Norwegian Sun to Mexico

Great Cruise

We had a wonderful time on the Norwegian Sun!  Almost all of the crew members were friendly and helpful.  The entertainment was quite good especially the Sun's dancers and singers.  The crew put on a talent show that was very enjoyable also and had a hysterical finale!  Super cruise director Ben and staff kept things light hearted throughout the cruise.  The ship was very nice and also very clean.  Our only complaint was getting off the ship.  It seemed so unorganized.  All in all an awesome cruise!

LandM's Tips

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico - Did. two days there. We have been there many times before. We had a nice time until a vendor called us a very nasty name for no reason at all as we walked by him! I was shocked by this. We are both 70 years old and did absolutely nothing to deserve this. I think the hostility towards Americans is growing!
Carnival Miracle Carnival Miracle - If you want to avoid children be sure to use the Serenity deck and pool!
Ruby Princess Ruby Princess - Ask for Sampong and Luis in the Michelangelo dining room. Russell in the Wheelhouse lounge.
Falmouth, Jamaica - I do not recommend buying anything in the port. The tax is 17%. Do visit Margaritaville! Hot tub there shaped like a giant Margarita!
Norwegian Sun Norwegian Sun - Be sure to visit the Obsevation bar on 12. Great views and in the evening good music and dancing.
