About cruzelady777

I took my first cruise June, 1979, on NCL Starward. I was hooked on cruising. I sailed 5 more times with NCL, one of which was my bucket list cruise ... on the S/S Norway from Philadelphia PA to Southampton, England. Add 3 more cruises on the S/S Azure Seas for New Year's Eve. That was the end of my cruising single. Married in 1988; we took a Carnival cruise as a second honeymoon April, 2000. It was hubby's first cruise, my 10th. Hubby got hooked too. We have cruised 14 more times since then. With our 3 children grown and on their own, we have time and $$$ to cruise frequently during the year out of Long Beach, CA. We love the cruise experience and enjoy each one. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in March 2013 on the Imagination and we decided to spend our anniversary every year on a cruise. Just finished cruise #29, counting down to cruise #30 (for me) which will be our annual family cruise in November when I will finally reach PLATINUM LEVEL !!!! It takes a long time to get there when you do mostly 3 night cruises. Happy Cruising to Everyone!

FANTASIC TIME -- 3rd Annual Cousins Cruise

Overall we had an amazing time. The kids said that this was the best cruise yet. The weather was perfect, we had one drink package and I had purchased Cruise Bar Cash in advance as well as redeemed rewards for $120 in photo credit. Our family pictures turned out great. Guy's Burgers is one of our favorites and it did not disappoint. Blue Iguana Cantina satisfied those with burrito/taco cravings. The deli served a delicious Smoked Salmon with Cream Cheese on Bagel. Love the calamari and escargot in the MDR. Just a wonderful, wonderful time.

"Merry 21st Birthday Cruise"

Merry 21st Birthday Cruise

I took my son & his best friend to celebrate their 21st birthdays. Love going in December for the holiday decorations. My son is a gold member, this was his best friend's first cruise. The weather was good for December, but the water was a bit rough the first night. I brought Bonine just in case and was glad to have it. The shows and food were great. We really enjoyed ourselves and the kids had fun finally being able to order their own drinks. They each received a spa gift card for $50 and they were lucky in the casino so BF had a massage and son had a facial. I just love cruising in December and look forward to another trip this year.

2nd Annual Cousins Cruise

This was the 2nd cruise for my nephew 16 & niece 11, hubby joined us this year, as well as our middle son 25. The weather was fantastic. The cabins were spacious and clean; our cabin stewards did a great job. Guy's Burgers is great. We loved the food at the buffet and MDR. We enjoyed the shows and trivia contests. Catalina Island is my favorite and we had a good time walking and shopping. Ensenada was fun with the new bridge that makes walking into town more convenient. Thank you Carnival for another fantastic cruise -- the staff and crew went above and beyond to make sure everyone had a great time. Cannot wait for our family cruise in November!

2nd Annual Superbowl Cruise

This was the first cruise after dry dock with the new 2.0 upgrades. Happy Guy's Burger Joint definitely lives up to its reputation. DELICIOUS, never ate more burgers on a cruise in my life, just fantastic. Blue Iguana Cantina Taco Bar & Burrito station were great too. I only ate there the first day, and it was also very delicious. I was just too full from burgers the other day and couldn't eat any more. The weather was perfect. Our cabin was spacious, clean and our steward kept the room nice. The crowd was a bit different, but despite some rude and inconsiderate behavior, we had a great time. The ship looked wonderful ... shiny, new, all spruced up from dry dock. Feel so fortunate to have been able to sail her all fresh and clean. The entertainment and food did not disappoint. YTD worked out exceptionally well this time. We truly enjoy the cruising experience and have found this is the only way to completely relax. Highly recommend for new and returning cruisers. Thanks, Carnival for providing great customer service and great value for our $$$. See you again March 25!

MLK Cruise 2016 - Absolutely Perfect

We have sailed many times on the Inspiration and each cruise is slightly different. We couldn't order a better time. From the moment we left home to drive from LV to Long Beach, everything went smoothly. Parking & embarkation was quick. Our cabin was clean with ample room for 2. The weather was beautiful. YTD was so easy and we were lucky to time it so we didn't have to wait. The food was delicious & our favorites did not disappoint. Love the calimari, flat iron steak, salmon, yum. The Lido Buffet has the best potato salad. We like the deli as well. The entertainment, shows & casino were fun. One of the best cruises we've been on. Thanks Carnival & crew for another fantastic time.

Belated 26th Anniversary / Memorial Day Cruise

We have cruise on the Inspiration many times and each cruise is different. This was the first time we tried YTD and we liked it. We love the food and entertainment. The shows are great and we also enjoy participating in the various trivia games. I have to admit, I love winning that "Ship-on-a-Stick". Our cabin was roomy for both of us and our cabin steward did a great job of keeping our room clean, tidy & my other favorite.....towel animals. Love them and look forward to them every night. Definitely recommend this cruise. We have cruised often with Carnival and enjoyed each one. Love

cruzelady777's Tips

Ensenada, Mexico - Took the horseback riding excursion through Carnival and had a wonderful time. The horses were healthy, well maintained. Miguel, the guide, spoke English very well and gave a nice back history to the surrounding areas. I would definitely book this excursion in the future and highly recommend it. We went in the morning and beat the heat.
Long Beach (Los Angeles), California - Didn't "visit" this port, but construction seems to be dying down or diverting and the trip to the port seemed quicker. Parking was fairly easy.
Carnival Imagination Carnival Imagination - Download Carnival Hub App and READ THE DAILY NEWSLETTER often. There is so much to do, you will miss a lot if you don't know what's going on when & where.
Carnival Inspiration Carnival Inspiration - The first thing we do is go straight to our cabin and drop off our bags. If the room is not ready, we leave our bags in the closet then make our way to the Lido deck for lunch. Any place you choose is great...Guy's Burger Joint, Blue Iguana Cantina, Buffet, Deli ... yummm.
