Pride of America

October 2016 - Pride of America to Hawaii

The Best!

This was the BEST cruise ever!  It also is the best way to see Hawaii for the first time.  Shore Excursions were excellent, food was excellent, and service was excellent.  I really would be hard pressed to find something to complain about.

Carnival Dream

March 2016 - Carnival Dream to Caribbean - Western

Carnival Dream - New Orleans

Overall - it was a very good cruise.  My biggest complaint was there were just to many people. You had to wait in so many long lines! Not enough room on the pool deck nor not near enough lounge chairs and/or tables with chairs.  It was almost a fight for them.  The bathrooms could have been cleaner.  The one by the pool deck on embarkation day was closed for repairs.  You had to walk quite a ways to find another bathroom.  Some of the locks on the bathroom stall doors did not work or you could not get the doors shut.  There also did not seem to be a lot of hand sanitizers on the ship.  When you did find one, it was either empty or not working.  The Caribbean Steel band that played was great....just too LOUD!  Almost all of the live music was just so loud you had to shout to have a conversation.  Loved the music videos they played on the pool deck.  Volume was perfect!  Carnival has the BEST pizza...ever!  And it is available 24/7.  Food was also great.  Most desserts were a little strange.  Service on the ship was great.  Most of all the employees we ran into on the ship were very friendly!  Overall - it was still a great cruise!

Norwegian Jade

January 2016 - Norwegian Jade to Caribbean - Western

NCL Jade

This was the BEST cruise we have ever been on.  (We've been on 5 cruises now.)  The people who worked for NCL, the food, the service, the ship, etc. were exceptional.  I would be hard pressed to find something to complain about.  I would repeat this cruise in a heartbeat!!!!!

Norwegian Sun

August 2015 - Norwegian Sun to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Norwegian Sun cruise/Alaska Glacier Bay Northbound

The cruise was great.  We had some GREAT shore excursions.  Food was just okay on the ship.  Most of the Norwegian Sun staff were really good.  A few that really stood out were:  Ohoy (AKA Chips Ahoy or Tom Cruise) from the Sports Bar on 11 and Sy (Syaifula) from the same bar.  Excellent bar tenders and Ohoy was VERY entertaining.  Made you laugh constantly!  Sy remembered our name after the first visit and what we drank.  I would highly recommend this bar.  Also, our room steward, Amiel Alameda was very friendly and thorough.  The on-board activities were okay.  The comedian at night (Tim Kaminchi) was EXCELLENT and so was the group "Oh What a Night" who did the tribute to Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons were also very good.  Rest of the night time entertainment was just okay.  The check-in process was TERRIBLE.  Took us over 2 1/2 hours to check-in to get on-board.  Computers went down 3 times.  It also seemed like we spent a LOT of time standing in lines while on board.  Really appreciated all the hand sanitizers throughout the ship.  Our room was very good...thanks to our agent, Robert Cook.  He gave us really good recommendations on shore excursions and various things about the ship.  I would highly recommend using Robert Cook.  Very easy to work with and very thorough.  Booking the cruise thru Robert was very easy.  Thank you!  Over all, it was a great cruise though and I would highly recommend it.
