Carnival Victory

January 2018 - 5 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Victory

Relaxing Faster to the Fun

As much as I loved the ship will choose not to sail on the Victory again . This was our second cruise on this ship it was the plumbing issue and no steakhouse I like that option But the rest of the ship crew, staff, entertainment was awesome

Caribbean Princess

November 2017 - 10 Night Panama Canal With Costa Rica & Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Caribbean Princess

Amazing trip to Panama Canal

Besides the front desk issues, the cruise was amazing We loved Costa Rica so much we are booked for a resort in May of 2018 Lots of fun on the cruise, from music to the crazy games with the Cruise staff Victoria, Rachel, Duval Brenna and Micca are hilarious and personable Would book this cruise again, with the hope that the front desk learn about better communication OH the INTERNET package is horrible and expensive . I ended up doing the hour for .79 a minute and they overcharged so be careful

Carnival Liberty

August 2017 - 3 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Liberty

So Much Fun

We had a blast on this cruise. Overall excellent for family and friends. I went with a gay friend and I am grateful they had the LGBT meetup each night. Comedy shows are so funny. The disco is ok, overcrowded. Karaoke is the same, but hilarious

Carnival Victory

October 2016 - 3 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Victory

Carnival Sensation

September 2015 - 4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Sensation

One of the best cruises I have enjoyed

Even though the ship  needs a renovation, the food, entertainment and crew made up for this. The cruise director Mat Seguin was excellent made the cruise fun and enjoyable. Our head waiter Donald was attentive and his staff amazing.

Norwegian Jade

October 2014 - 7 Night Greek Isles (Venice Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Jade

Worst cruise I have ever taken

I must say that the staff was wonderful on the cruise. That being said the food was horrible in the dining room chicken looked boiled, the beef brisket looked and tasted like tofu. We ended up eating in the buffet each night for dinner. My daughter and I got bit 6 times by what we think was a spider. They did come in with blue light checking for bed bugs, we told them many times its not bed bugs but they were at least thorough, however we still continued to get bit each night in our cabin. The music was awful, a group called sound bytes ruined every song they sung and every person I spoke to complained about their music. The fact that the ship did not sell duty free alcohol or tobacco is unheard of. Adding 22% sales tax to any jewelry they sold and telling us that we would have to try to get it back at the airport. There were no "fun" things to do by the pool side, it was just music being played over the loud speaker for most of the days. There were a couple of things but that was it. The excursions except for Corfu, which was a rained out disaster were exceptional. Corfu was pretty much a monsoon. We were made to walk through the rain and even with an umbrella we got drenched my feet were squishing then we were made to sit in our wet clothing to watch dancing and eat delicious food but who could enjoy it when we were so uncomfortable cold and wet, this was the excursion Best of Corfu, and we did not get to see all of the items promised on the excursion because of the rain. Our money should have been refunded even though it says rain or shine, it was so bad that the tenders could not dock against the boat, and ended up being quite dangerous for everyone attempting to get back on the ship from the tender.

When debarking from the ship and going to a hotel in Venice, we waited over 40 minutes for a taxi to take us to a tender who took us to the hotel. This too was poorly planned. I/we will never ever sail Norwegian again.

Louisemae's Tips

Colon, Panama - Long day, Old Panama City awesome Tour guides need to stop pointing out "Political" interests to invoke a response from their guests
Cartagena, Colombia - 3 hours to see this wonderful place do a tour and shop seriously We did the Old City and it was so interesting but just not enough time to see everything
George Town, Grand Cayman - Beautiful would like to purchase a home here. We did the Trolley Roger hour ride around the Island. It was fun, then lots of time for shopping before and after the excursion
Falmouth, Jamaica - loved this port we did the Discover Jamaica great tour guide she and the driver told us all sorts of great things about Jamaica and took us by Bob Marley home
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica - I love Costa Rica, its a beautiful country the excursion was amazing we did the Train Tour got bitten by mosquitoes a million times but we also went in a boat along a small river and saw Iguanas, and Sloths and Caimans and monkeys just a great tour they offered refreshments at the end of the tour such a friendly and experienced staff
Caribbean Princess Caribbean Princess - avoid the front desk unless you talk to Olena There is obviously a lack of communication here and some ladies were rude, or did not know what was going on for instance" Are there any more electrical plugs for phones" the first lady we spoke to said I don't know I don't think so, she seemed confused.Correct answer: There are three plugs in the room, the bathroom, one by the phone, and one behind the tv. These last answers were given by Olena We would like to change our specialty dinner to another restaurant, Answer you will have to go to the restaurant itself to inquire... correct answer call the dining number and change given by Olena
Nassau, Bahamas - Nassau is an old, dirty and poor city . I take the cruise not to visit the port but for the experience of the cruise however I did get off the ship and went to the Tortuga Rum cake factory and the Bob Marley shop and Hard Rock Cafe all excellent.
Carnival Liberty Carnival Liberty - Have fun enjoy the comedy shows Killer Beaz is hilarious Try the Steakhouse and Guys Burgers both excellent.
Venice, Italy - amazing I am looking for an apartment what a beautiful place to visit
Norwegian Jade Norwegian Jade - don't eat in the dining room, if going to the lounge go after sound bytes is finished, buy bug spray in case you get bit in the cabin.
