About cshorlock

We've been cruising since 2011 and I found out it's a vacation that I don't get bored with. I know Patricia would like to sit on beach for a week somewhere but it would drive me nuts. My first cruise was Christmas cruise 1987 on sitmar line out of Sydney. The Funship fairstar. Retired soon after and was old and rough but my god it was fun. We would have to have a bad day everyday on a cruise to not enjoy it. Something is going to happen everyday that bothers you but we don't let it get to us and in our opinion any cruise is a great cruise.

Navigator of the Seas

November 2015 - Navigator of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Great Cruise

we had a great time on the ship. Our suite was awesome as was the staff that attended to us in every venue. Didn't have a bad meal at all. Weather could have been better but that's not the ships fault. We learned a few cruises ago that it is all about your attitude how good a cruise you are going to have.

Legend of the Seas

January 2015 - Legend of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Nice long laid back cruise

longest and smallest ship we've done and really enjoyed it. Suite was awesome as was our service as usual. We always start out letting our suite attendant know what few things we expect out of them and we've never been disappointed. Dining was awesome our waiters were great and had great table mates. Food was great including windjammer and park cafe. Enjoyed most stops. There again we board the ship knowing that no matter what small problems we might run into, we are going to have a great time.

Navigator of the Seas

February 2014 - Navigator of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Family fun

We brought our 3 adult kids and their sig. Others with us and had a great time. The ship was fresh out of major dry dock so the crew was pretty much new and they were scrambling to get everything together but we learned after our first cruise that mayhem is bliss! Our cabins and attendants were awesome, dining room was awesome, bar and wait service was great, food was great in every place we ate so great cruise.

Oasis of the Seas

November 2013 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Incredible ship

We had a suite booked but couldn't afford it when due so called agent to cancel and she got us inside balcony over boardwalk of lines choosing for cheap, so we did and had great time. Only went to dining room first night did dining package and loved every restaurant. 150 Central Park was outstanding and fun.food and service in windjammer was awesome believe it or not. Cabin was small but nice and we could watch water show and the zipline went right over us. The balcony was great to have on the boardwalk. Ship was just amazing. We want to do it again just to see what we missed.our servers and attendants were great. Just a great adventure.

Carnival Magic

October 2012 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Eastern

Lots of fun

My wife had been on two carnivals with our daughters and wanted me to try it. We had a awesome cruise mainly due to the people we met at dining table. Ship was nice but seemed a lot more crowded than RC. In line for everything. Never did get any pizza at pizza counter, a ton more people than pizza getting made. areas seemed to get really congested sometime to a point you couldn't get thru. All of that aside our suite was plain but nice. Service was great. Dining room was really fun waiters jumping up on counters singing and maitre d was great entertainer. Food was great. Rear pool was really nice, less crowded than main pool.

really fun cruise!

Mariner of the Seas

January 2012 - Mariner of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Cruising with friends

we took 4 other couples with us on this cruise. It was a ton of fun but trying to make everyone happy is a chore, they were all first timers. We learned on previous cruises that things aren't perfect so just don't sweat the small stuff. For instance our concierge in the suite lounge was new and just awful. Can't remember her name. Other than that suite was perfect as was all the people that served us, dining room was awesome. We always like windjammer and of course you never go wrong in specialty restaurants. Just another really great adventure!

Voyager of the Seas

April 2011 - Voyager of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

My first modern day cruise

Not knowing what to expect, I fell in love with the engineering marvel of these ships. We had a great suite and had great service but the food in the dining room was not so great. We loved the beach in roatan. Enjoyed walking all thru Belize city, and had great time at beach and at margaritaville in Cozumel.

cshorlock's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - Rented scooter and rode all over Nassau. No problems but be careful.
Carnival Magic Carnival Magic - Just be ready for crowds and lines for most everything on ship. But fun.
Voyager of the Seas Voyager of the Seas - We really liked the older version of the voyager class with the cove balconies instead of the later balconies attached to ship.
Legend of the Seas Legend of the Seas - If you don't know how to dance you better learn. Lots of dancing going on and fun to watch.
