Carnival Sunshine

August 2018 - 8 Night Southern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Sunshine

Sunshine was a nice ship. A little crowded in places. We were on deck 12 and didn't feel any extreme movement. Had a great cruise. Serenity deck was usually crowded. Had quite a few chair hogs, but that didn't ruin our cruise. Could of had more than one hot (whirlpool) tub on the Serenity deck. To many unattended kids in the hot (whirlpool) tubs. We just waited til we could have room to get in. Brunch in dining was great. Didn't eat at the buffet but did eat at the deli. Nice fresh sandwiches. Cucina Del Capitano for lunch was great. The Fahrenheit Steakhouse was fabulous. Dinner (early dining) at the Sunset dining room was good, and service was exceptional. Our room steward, Ketut was great. Red Frog Pub was good. Had fun at the shows. Didn't do comedy shows to much hassle to get in. Went to casino. Came out ahead plus received drinks on us card. Aruba we did the Kukoo Kunuku party bus & nightlife with dinner. Dinner was ok, but the dancing and partying was really great. Curacao we free lanced around the city had a few drinks and let the wifes shop. Grand Turk did the beach and had some great jerk chicken at Jack's Shack. Overall a great cruise. Would do this itinerary again. Overall a great cruise.

Carnival Inspiration

June 2018 - 3 Night Baja Mexico (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Inspiration

For an older ship it was in good overall shape. Cruise director No No was great and very enthusiastic. Kept things lively. Anak at the Red 🍺Frog 🐸 bar was great. Our room steward Wi was good, but a little slow. Did not see anyone helping him. Joesph, Gede, and Emil our waiters in the main dining room were great. This was a good 3 day cruise, but I don't think I will do another 3 day. Just to short.

Carnival Valor

January 2018 - 4 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Valor

Did not go out of Port Canaveral. It went out of Galveston, TX.

This our 2nd cruise on the ship and it was as good as the 1st. The reason for the 4 stars in casino was for the drink service.

Cruise tips

Cozumel, Mexico

No excursion, been here many times. Just Shopped around town. Ended up at Poncho's Backyard and had a few drinks with chips and salsa

Galveston, Texas

Ship was late due to fog. Shopped the Strand district. Went to Stuttgarden and had a few drinks (great Moscow Mule) waiting for the ship to come in.

Carnival Dream

Carnival Dream

Try the mud room in the spa. It was a great suprise to my wife. It was very relaxing and fun.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Good port. We got a cab and visited Brimstone Hill Fortress. Was a very great place to visit.

Grand Turk Island

Been her several times. Beach day. Went about 3/4 way down beach towards Jack's Shack got 2 beach chairs and umbrella for $20.00 on front row at beach. Stopped at the beached Whale had a couple of drinks and some good jerked chicken.

Ensenada

Had about a 15 minute walk to the actual city and shopping. Some things were closed due to we were there on election day. Ensenada was a fairly clean city. Was not afraid to wonder around and shop. Also we did a Wine tasting tour (Wine Country Tour) which took us to 2 different winery's. Very interesting. When we were done with the tour we were presented a bottle of wine each.

Long Beach (Los Angeles), California

Easy embarking was on the ship by 11:15 in my cabin by 11:30. Terminal was clean and the people were quick and very efficient. Self debarkation was very quick was on the bus to LAX by 7:20. Very pleasant experience both ways.

Galveston, Texas

Anyone going out of Galveston this weekend February 2-4 or next weekend February 9-11 remember it's Mardi Gras. If you don't have a room it maybe hard to find.

Carnival Valor

Carnival Valor

This ship's interior decor is amazing. Take some good long looks and you can see the theme of the ships name Valor. Eagles lounge, Lindy piano bar, Shogun casino, Ivanhoe theatre, Lincoln dining, Washington dining, Atrium America all have to do with Valor.
