I have been cruising since I was about 5 years old and am in the process of planning my 18th cruise! I've cruised Royal Caribbean (Grandeur, 3 times) , Celebrity (Millenium, Zenith, Mercury, and SS Meridian) Carnival (Holiday, Triumph, Pride), Costa (Victoria), Premiere (Big Red Boat), Princess (Sun Princess), and a few others I can't recall at the moment.

Carnival Pride

It's not the best cruise I've been on but it's not my worst. I probably wouldn't cruise this ship again, or maybe even this line, unless the company makes some major changes.

Cruise Tips

Celebrity Summit

Celebrity Summit

Go to the covered pool at the back of the ship if you don't want to swim with kids at the pool! There's 4 hot tubs and a hot tub-like lounge chair in the main pool!

Celebrity Summit

Celebrity Summit

Just go and have fun! It's a higher class than Carnival, which is a relief. Overall, Celebrity really has their act together!

King's Wharf, Bermuda

The Caves, Aquarium, and Zoo were great! Definitely go to Hamilton on Wednesday nights, they have a local street fair with lots of vendors from all over Bermuda! Snorkel Beach was a little rocky so wear your water socks! Enter on the left hand side of the beach, there's less rocks on that side!

Adventure of the Seas

Ok so I have yet to be on this ship, but I heard from a friend of mine that has been on this ship 3 times that the Ice Show is a MUST! However, you need to book tickets early if you want to get a seat! Also, I hear that "Quest" is hilarious!

Carnival Pride

Carnival Pride

Check out the Serenity Pool/Adults Only area in the back of the ship! It's one of the most relaxing and quiet areas of the ship!

Grand Turk Island

Again, it was unusually hot there for this time of year (May), so bring water if you can! Also be sure to visit the John Glenn landmark: that was the site of his splashdown landings in the 60's! Again, I just wish we had more time there!

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

I wish we had more time there,besides that, when we were there it was unusually hot for that time of year (May). I kid you not, it was 100% humidity in 100 degree heat! Bring water off the ship if you can! Wear light clothing and sunscreen! You may want to consider bringing sunscreen off the ship!

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

It was unusually hot for the time of year that we went, I kid you not, it was 100% in 100 degree heat! My best advise is to bring water with you if you can! If not, wear light clothing and good walking shoes! Wear sunscreen when you go, and bring some off the ship with you!

Your cruise is what you make of it. Carnival attracts a certain crowd and that crowd is not right for me.

King's Wharf, Bermuda

One of my family's favorite ports! This will be our 3rd time here, and the first time I can actually remember anything really about the port. I've been cruising since I was 5 years old and have only been to Bermuda twice, so while I do remember Bermuda, I only remember snapshots. There is a great tour that goes all the way around the island, starting at King's Wharf. The first bus goes from King's Wharf to Hamilton, then a second bus takes you from Hamilton, around the other side of the island and back to King's Wharf. Great tour for first timers!
