dutchndino1's Past Cruises

Regal Princess

August 2016 - Regal Princess to Europe - Northern Europe

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 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Western

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.

A Bucket List Must

Voyage of the Glaciers is a must for young and old. It is awe inspiring. The only place I have been that compares is the Alps. I hope to go back again and take my family.

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 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
