Adventure of the Seas

September 2018 - 10 Night Fall Foliage Northbound (Cape Liberty To Quebec City) Cruise on Adventure of the Seas

Somewhat of a disappointment

This was an okay cruise. At this time of the year, there was no color in the trees, definitely no fall foliage. Unfortunately, Royal Caribbean has steadily offered less and less over the past five years as far as service when it comes to their Diamond Members. They had a Diamond lounge that comfortably would accommodate 50, and there were 700 Members. In other ships, they shut down the Crown Lounge to the public so Diamonds would have enough space, but they did not do it on Adventure. There were no enrichment lectures.

Emerald

May 2018 - 16 days on Emerald

Oasis of the Seas

February 2018 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Oasis of the Seas

Oasis is a great ship!

We were a family of 6 including our 6-year-old grandson who was a first time cruiser. We all had a wonderful time, and there was something for everyone to do. I highly recommend Oasis of the Seas even to those who prefer smaller ships. It was an awesome experience, and I will never shy away from a mega ship again.

Celebrity Xpedition

April 2016 - 7 Night Galapagos Islands Inner Loop (Baltra Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Xpedition

The trip of a lifetime!

This cruise was everything Celebrity promised....... and more! The crew of the ship was awesome. Everyone was very friendly and did everything to make sure all of the guests were comfortable and happy. The naturalists were OUTSTANDING! No matter the situation, they were reassuring, patient, and supportive. The stops that we made optimized the kinds of animals and terrain that we experienced. It was worth every cent that we paid. I can't say enough good things about sailing on the Xpedition and the crew.

Baldur

October 2015 - 16 days on Baldur

Carnival Sunshine

August 2015 - 8 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Sunshine

Cruise exceeded our expectations

This cruise was very reasonably priced and one of the destinations was Grand Turk. This was our primary reason for selecting it. The only Carnival cruise we had taken before this was on the Fantasy out of Charleston which was not a positive experience. Our expectations were not that high for the Sunshine, and we were very pleasantly surprised. We have never had better food on a cruise, and we have cruised Holland America, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Celebrity, and Norwegian. The service was great all through the ship. We had a problem with dining service on the first night, and we discussed it with the Maitre'd the next morning. He recognized our issue and for the remainder of the cruise we had a different waiter, table for two, at a window. All of the personnel were very friendly. The only negative about this cruise was there are very few places to quietly sit and read or talk on the Sunshine.

Celebrity Infinity

February 2015 - 14 Night Antarctica (Buenos Aires Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Infinity

A wonderful adventure!

This cruise was much more of an adventure than any of our previous cruises because of the destinations and two wonderful podium speakers on the Infinity - MickeyeLive and Milos Radakovich. They thoroughly prepared us for what we would see in the days to come in an educational and entertaining manner. We really liked the layout of Infinity, and its crew. Best to start this cruise rested up and ready for an active schedule. From dawn to evening, there is much to see and learn.

Norwegian Sun

November 2014 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Sun

Great experience on Norwegian Sun

We are frequent cruisers but had never cruised Norwegian. We just completed this week long cruise and had a wonderful time. The food was great and service excellent. We were skeptical of their freestyle dining but it worked out very well. We will cruise Norwegian again.

Legend of the Seas

September 2014 - 14 Night Transatlantic Westbound (Oslo To Cape Liberty) Cruise on Legend of the Seas

Celebrity Reflection

April 2014 - 16 Night Spanish Interlude Transatlantic (Miami To Rome) Cruise on Celebrity Reflection

Great trip with a wonderful crew

The crew of Reflections was wonderful and provided great service. The food was delicious, and we highly recommend this cruise. Although we thought the entertainment in the bars was lacking, the evening entertainment for the shows was wonderful, especially the production crew. The ports were great and provided lots of opportunities to make the most of our time ashore. We took some Celebrity shore excursions and some advertised through .

Cruise Tips

Adventure of the Seas

Adventure of the Seas

They do not treat their Diamond Level cruisers very well. Prepare to accept less than you do on other cruise lines.

Sydney, Nova Scotia

The only reason I gave this one star is because I couldn't give it less. Under no circumstances should you go on an excursion called History, Culture, and Color of Sydney. It was not a nice port.

Oasis of the Seas

Oasis of the Seas

Make sure to make all show and dining reservations several months before you sail.

Falmouth, Jamaica

Not good proximity to things to do. 3 in our party did the zip lining and tubing. They said the zip lining was great. Tubing, not so great.

Cozumel, Mexico

We went to Chankanaab for the Dolphin encounter and the day pass. It was wonderful. They really spent time with the dolphins. The only down side was the price of the dolphin photos and people weren't allowed to take any of their own photos. Photos were $40 each or the package for $140. Food was delicious as were the drinks. The sea lion show was great, too.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

A very nice place to visit. We did an excursion to a small town on the outskirts and enjoyed it very much.

Celebrity Infinity

Book your dining hours ahead of time to get the time you want.

Radiance of the Seas

Sail a different ship.

Cruise Moscow Canal

Condition of the boat was not that good.

Viking Truvor

Viking Truvor

The food needs to be improved, except for the desserts which were great.

Viking Baldur

Viking Baldur

I would talk with them several weeks prior to disembarking and have a frank discussion about whether or not you are going to be able to complete the river cruise or if your river cruise is going to turn into changing ships, buses, and hotel/s.

Carnival Sunshine

If you have a problem on the ship, talk with guest services immediately so they have a chance to correct the problem.

Celebrity Infinity

Infinity has a very logical and friendly layout.
