February 2018 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Magic

A truly wonderful cruise!

We had a fabulous time on this cruise! The ports of call are some of our favs and the diversity of the ports is truly a plus. Would do this again if the opportunity presents itself.

Love Bermuda-Pride Needs Updating

Visit Bermuda but stay off the Pride until they refurb it. It's a lot of money for old and in need of work. Be sure to check out Horseshoe Bay, Hamilton-the Pickled Onion is nice and St Georges.

Carnival Magic

January 2017 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Magic

Great Time but limited activities

We had a great cruise, loved St Thomas and Grand Turk. Did not think for the 

size of the ship many activities were offered other than the standard money making ones.  Movies were limited and sometimes canceled, no Zumba, and why oh why replace shows with passenger games.  The ship was clean and the crew while not as friendly as other cruises they were fine.

We would go on this ship again if we liked the itinerary.

Carnival Pride

September 2016 - 7 Night Bermuda (Baltimore Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Pride

Carnival Delight

Our last Carnival cruise was a hot mess but this trip to Bermuda was very nice. Our cabin steward was exceptional, the meals were above par from our last experience and all in all the trip was relaxing and fun. We only had 1 downside that was the cruise lines fault-on the last night of our cruise our cabin ceiling developed a leak and it took 3+ hours for it to be fixed-I was uncomfortable leaving our cabin as we had a plummer and different housekeeping staff coming and going.

Not Up to Royal Standards

We totally enjoyed our cruise and the ports of call. We did find the ship not as clean as past Royal trips and with few exceptions the staff was not friendly. Royal has always been our favorite line but our past 2 with them have not met the same standard they set in our first 4-5 sailings. Our dinners were fab as our waiter, Coco, is top of the line and his assistant Raj is equally as wonderful. Breakfast was a hot mess where ever we went-the Windjammer was overflowing every morning and additional seating had to made available and the main dining room open for breakfast was crowded beyond anyone's comfort level. The staff in the 2 eating areas on deck 5 were superb. Our cabin was nice and the steward, Junior was efficient and accommodating.

Norwegian Breakaway

June 2013 - 7 Night Bermuda (New York roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Breakaway

SO NOT WORTH THE $$$

We were so excited to be going back to Bermuda and equally excited to sail on the new Breakaway. Bermuda did not disappoint but the Breakaway sure did. From the size of our mini suite which should be named micro suite to the crew we were less then impressed. For starters our suitcases would not fit to roll between the bed and the wall. It was advertized that we would have a tub to only receive an email that we would have a large shower and no credits were given for this. I will say the shower was nice and yes it was large but anyone would expect to get what they pay for or they would think a company would make good on the issue in some fashion.To say these rooms have a balcony is somewhat misleading even by cruise standards. Our balcony was 27 sq ft and felt as cramped as it sounds. This was so frustrating as we enjoy time with our travel friends on the balcony in the evenings and this was just not possible. The crew except for our steward and 1 waiter was the worst we have experienced on any of our 7 cruises. They acted like they were doing you a favor and were not as friendly as we have normally experienced. You should also know that you can't attend a new show each night and some of the shows have a charge. We enjoy going to the shows so this was irritating as was having to make reservations for all shows. You might freestyle dine but you won't freestyle show. I could go on but with this you get this point.

cruisinisfun's Tips

Belize City, Belize - Did not take an excursion here and we did not walk around much as the locals do not leave you be.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - First time here and they certainly make you feel welcome. Very nice port area with entertainment, a pool, shopping, dolphins etc. Would be happy to visit again!!!
Cozumel, Mexico - Always a fun stop whether yo.u walk around or do a water excursion
Grand Turk Island - Nice clean port area with great beach area and a pool. Not much shopping here so be sure to get most of your gifts at other stops.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - You can venture out but caution is needed as you just don't feel all that safe to far from the main tourist areas. Our community gives back excursion was nice but not as advertised. We did see more of the on it and our guide was awesome. Seeing where Maria hit so hard was jaw dropping and learning that 32% of the population of PR still doesn't have power is so troubling.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - We always enjoy St. Thomas and this time was no exception. The restaurants at the nearby mall are good and the people are always friendly.
Carnival Magic Carnival Magic - Go the Seaday brunch- by far a great menu and relaxing time.
Carnival Pride Carnival Pride - Be sure to check out sea day brunch and sea day afternoon tea.
Carnival Magic Carnival Magic - Pizza cafe is wonderful thin crust pizza and they will cater to requests. Walk around deck 5 if you think the sports deck is small and almost dizzy making. Don't be in a rush to get off, Carnival can't manage people moving well! Sea Day brunch is a must the pasta bar on Sea Days is also a treat.
Carnival Pride Carnival Pride - Caesar salad in main dining room excellent and the cranberry rolls are addictive. Casual attire not frowned upon even on dressy nights :)
