About carmenburgess

Very hard working Nurse, mother of two, several fur babies and never take time for myself. First cruise last year and again this year. Realized I love it because I don't have to think about anything. Everyone is taken care of and I don't have to plan it or worry about it. I do find the mother and nurse in me wanting to make sure that some of the crew I see genuinely care about people are taken care of. They work so hard.

Carnival Ecstasy

June 2016 - Carnival Ecstasy to Caribbean - Bahamas

Sad to be home.....

I read all the reviews prior to boarding so I was a little nervous.... I guess it's perspective and WHAT you want out of a cruise.  The crew was GREAT! The entertainment was NEVER lacking, the food was good, yes, mass produced, so don't expect gourmet but really? It's like going to McDonalds and ordering a freshly made Filet Mignon and getting upset you got a bigmac.... really? Some people just have to have something to complain about! It was fourth of July weekend so CROWDED but again, perspective, I had a blast, my family had a blast and although I feel like the crew are overworked and very under appreciated by passengers they were all pleasant and always acted like they were there to personally ensure my vacation was fabulous!!!

Carnival Fantasy

June 2015 - Carnival Fantasy to Caribbean - Bahamas

carmenburgess's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - Nassau is dirty and touristy, take an excursion to Balmoral or somewhere like that where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful water....The top ten tour is good as well to see all the history and the highlights!
Charleston, South Carolina - Go the night before and spend the night where you can leave your car, take a shuttle. It is WORTH it!!! Get on earlier and SO easy!
Carnival Ecstasy Carnival Ecstasy - The cabins are small, two of us was fine, four of us was tight. Don't take BIG suitcases that cannot be folded down due to lack of space but if you are staying in your room you are missing something!!!! TIP your crew members who were extra special!!!! They deserve it!
