May 2018 - 4 Night Havana Overnight (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Empress of the Seas

Carnival Glory

August 2017 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Glory

The Amazing Crew made

Carnival Glory Staff: They were all awesome. Too many to name. But they made my vacation unbelievable. Some of the most hardworking crew I've sailed with. Friendly, helpful, engaging, professional. I appreciate them all from the steward, waiters, casino and guest services. Some difficult cruisers and the Glory staff was tops! Embarkation/Debarkation: Amazing. Almost too fast - flight wasnt until 5pm. Miami has embarkation and debarkation down to a well oiled machine. The porters etc were great. Other Ports should mimic. Not a huge fan of Dustin (Cruise Director) but the fun squad was cute. Brad was amazing and full of energy. Go to the Spa and ask for Dr. Fang or Rebecca - they were awesome!

Carnival Vista

November 2016 - 11 Night Eastern Caribbean Carnival Journeys (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Vista

BEST "JOURNEY" CRUISE EVER!!!

Carnival does an amazing job with embarkation.  All of my interaction with cruise members were amazing. Primarily, cabin steward, photography, entertainment and Playlist members.  The Ship is beautiful, well lit and amazing art work.  Serenity is larger than on any other ship. The offer huge bowls of personal salads on Serenity and it has 2 hot tubs. Fabulous.  The cast in the shows were amazing, gracious and super friendly.  The shows were fun. The games, dances, singing, and crafts were nice for an 11 day cruise. The rooms are smaller but who wants to spend time in their cabin.  Food options are to plentiful to mention. I loved loved the food. The premier restaurants were inexpensive and the attention to detail was phenomenal. 

During the cruise, the only valid complaint was too few elevators and the ship had several guest in wheelchairs. A very large percentage of cruisers were physically challenged. 

Pre-cruise my only con was dealing with Lora Hall, at .  She was completely unresponsive. I mentioned this several times. I considered leaving , but I now work with Paula Schwartz.  I am disappointed that she has not responded to any of my calls. And I wanted to book a NEW CRUISE.  Lastly nothing can damper my amazing - great cruise.  Thank you!!!

Oceangift's Tips

Carnival Glory Carnival Glory - Not a huge fan of Dustin (Cruise Director) but the fun squad was cute. Brad was amazing and full of energy. Go to the Spa and ask for Dr. Fang or Rebecca - they were awesome!
St. John's, Antigua - Book an excursion. The area surrounding the port is depressed and very difficult to maneuver. Buy from the locals but be aware.
Carnival Vista Carnival Vista - Try to use the STEPS... Book a middle floor like 6, so you can use the steps during busy times.. Food is on 10 and most activities are on 4 & 5. Play miniature golf, do the sky ride. Eat at JiJi's, and Farhenheit 55. Embrace and chat with the entertainment staff. Especially Cookie, Nono and Eden.
