Carnival Sunshine

April 2018 - 8 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Sunshine

8 Days of Fun

First 8 day cruise. We all liked the extra day to do nothing, sailing back to Port. Do think they need more staff to monitor the buffet lines as the way people do not wash hands and drop handles into food is an illness waiting to happen

Regal Princess

August 2016 - 25 Night Northern Europe Grand Adventure (Copenhagen To New York) Cruise on Regal Princess

Trip of Lifetime

Every port was fantastic with ST.PETERSBerg at the top. We had sunshine in every port which I understand was in itself amazing for that part of the world. Check in and disembarking was better than any cruise I have taken in the past. The crew of Regal Princess was also the best crew and the most friendly I have ever had the pleasure of coming in contact with. I would without a doubt recommend this cruise to all.

Carnival Magic

June 2016 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Magic

Never in Summer

Guys Burgers was a 100% better then old supply of burgers used on Carnival. To many kids left to run wild and I mean run, with not even security telling them to stop running. I saw many slip and fall including my granddaughter who was WALKING with me but many floors were wet from dripping bathing suits.

Coral Princess

May 2016 - 7 Night Voyage Of The Glaciers Southbound (Anchorage To Vancouver) Cruise on Coral Princess

Royal Princess

October 2015 - 20 Night Caribbean Explorer (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Royal Princess

Carnival Valor

September 2015 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Valor

Valor

Avoid eating at buffet lines. No one monitoring hand sanitizer use as they do on Princess Cruises. Many people just reaching for food with bare hands. Many food containers empty when I reached them, had to ask for them to be refilled. Did not seem to have enough staff to bus tables. Also had 2 sour milks. Food seems to have gone downhill. Better in dining room.

dutchndino1's Tips

Ketchikan, Alaska - buy all your trinkets here as I found it the least expensive of all ports. Also bought a wonderful "Alaska" jacket for $19.95 here.
Cruise College Fjord, Alaska -
Cruise Glacier Bay - make sure you have warm clothes to stand on open top decks and take lots of pictures
Coral Princess Coral Princess - no special tips as everything on Princess has always been perfect for me
Carnival Magic Carnival Magic - If going in the summer, get up early for food on lido deck or you will be fighting the crowds
Nassau, Bahamas - were warned by ship personal to be careful on shore alot of crime
