Carnival Sensation

June 2016 - 4 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Sensation

Carnival Sensation

My favorite parts of the cruise were the comedians (Louis Johnson & Jason Blanchard - they were original & funny) and the Serenity deck hot tubs. If I was a kid, I would have thoroughly enjoyed the huge water slides which looked more fun than the tiny packed main pools (reminded me of overcrowded NYC public pools).


Our room porter Jonathan was genuinely friendly, helpful & attentive. Staff is hardworking & helpful.


The solo guitar player/singer was very good.


I wish there was better music & dancing on the main outdoor deck and that there was a private island as a destination.


The food was ok with the Mongolian station being the best imho.


My main peeve is that the antibacterial dispensers at the food buffet and restaurants always seemed to be empty.


We made the best of it & enjoyed ourselves

Norwegian Breakaway

February 2015 - 2 Night Weekend Escape (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Breakaway

fun escape

Breakaway is a fun ship and I can imagine how great it is in the hot weather when all of the outdoor areas can be used, especially the outdoor restaurants. That said, the winter cruise gets crowded & a bit hectic but there's lots to do. Catch the sail away party on deck 16 and wear your hats & coats! If you do the short cruise you MUST book your spa appt super early, get on the boat early & run to deck 15 to book the spa time. The NCL concierge app does not work for spa. If you book a package that includes room service, book that right away & be sure to get a menu if it's not already in your room. Go to guest services on deck 6 to confirm number for room service. Have fun!

Cruise Tips

Key West, Florida

Rent bikes & ride around to get Key Lime pie, conch fritters, see the lighthouse & aquarium, southernmost point in US.

Cozumel, Mexico

Get off the boat asap since the beaches close at 5 or 6pm. Get a driver & go on tour or to beach Then go back to the pier to shop & drink.

Miami, Florida

Go to the Wynwood Walls outdoor art exhibit & surrounding art district. It's free (except for parking) and only 10 minutes north of Port of Miami by car.

They have a formal night so be prepared

Norwegian Breakaway

Norwegian Breakaway

It's big, study the map they provide so you can save time & feet getting around on a short cruise! NCL concierge app was only good to keep track of expenses & already booked apts. App is not good for booking spa appointments or dinner reservations
