Golden Princess

July 2014 - Golden Princess to Alaska - Inside Passage

Awesome cruise!

We chose  this cruise because we wanted to cruise Glacier Bay!  We were not disappointed!  Golden Princess is an older ship that has been nicely updated. We chose a mini-suite because we planned on using our room for sightseeing. It was spacious and clean.  It had two TVS which we utilized on cruise days.  Glacier Bay was  extraordinary.  We had a port side room and had an awesome view of the glaciers . The ship does turn so it doesn't matter which side you are on. Our excursions were booked through Princess.  We didn't see a big difference in price, liked their trips better and felt we were assured of the ship waiting for us if we were late.  Went whale watching in Juneau.  We saw humpback whales bubbling!  Our tour  guide said we had a seldom seen experience. We also saw killer whales!   We then went to Mendehall glacier which was awesome and while there saw salmon running! 

 Our other tours were also great. 

 

The he only negative was the lengthy boarding process. However our room was ready.  We went to the international cage for lunch as recommended by other cruisers.  Short line and good food.  Came back there several times for lunch .

we thoroughly enjoyed the naturalist lectures and commentaries. A highlight of the trip.We would definitely cruise with Princess again.

Carnival Imagination

November 2013 - Carnival Imagination to Caribbean - Western

Carnival Imagination leaves you to your imagination

We took this cruise just to get away for a few days.  It is an older ship and looks a little worn out.  (Carpets, windows in stateroom, showers) . However, everything was very clean. The service was great, the food was good, and we relaxed.  The pool area was a little too busy for our tastes.  Partly due to the grill being right there and partly due to the very loud dj.  We were able, though, to find several other places on the ship that were quieter.  The serenity deck was one (adults only). First time we had an ocean view room.  We usually book a balcony but we were trying to do this as an inexpensive getaway.  Not a good decision!  Room was small, no refrigerator, no way to get "air". From now on we will only book balconies.   The only time we saw a show was in the afternoon of our last day at sea.  It was at 3 pm and was very funny.  Other shows were too late for us( 10-11pm) they had only one showing. If we cruise again with carnival we would definitely want a newer ship an a balcony.
