Norwegian Jewel

October 2016 - Norwegian Jewel to Mexico

say no to soda packages

My wife and I went on this cruise to enjoy the water of the Mexican Rivera and we did just that. We enjoyed all of the ports and the activities on board the ship. The only issue I have with the trip is a small one but it put a damper on the trip. I do not drink alcohol and as such, I decided to buy the soda package. That turned out to be a big mistake. After the first time a server finds I am only on the soda package, I was avoided like the plague by that server. The only way I could get a refill is to go to the bartender and then I had to wait an unusual amount of time. The sad thing is that this happened in EVERY venue. I do not tip each time I get a drink, but at the end of the cruise to those who take good care of me. On the Jewel, the servers chose not to take care of me for a nice tip. Myu advice is not to buy the soda package and drink water if you want better service on the Jewel.

Carnival Imagination

November 2015 - Carnival Imagination to Mexico

Good but could be better

We were able to embark onto the Imagination without problems and went to lunch while waiting for our cabin. The cabin was wonderful. All in all the ship was good, but we kept getting some bad smells on the 6th deck. We were disappointed in the activities. Although there were activities, they were not a fulfilling as has been in past Carnival cruises.

Catalina Island was nice to see, we rented bikes and biked around the town of Avalon. That was a perfect way to see the town with exercise. At 60, i have to say I did pretty good on the bike, yeah.

Ensenada was really nice as we went to the Blow hole, which I recommend doing. The only issue I had was the jewelery store ripped me off by selling me what was supposed to be .925 siilver ring and it wasn't. Since I put it on my credit card, my credit company is going to refund me the money. Make sure you don't use Lili's downtown for they were not honest about the silver content of the ring. It turned my finger green by the next day.

All in all we had a wonderful time.

Norwegian Sun

September 2014 - Norwegian Sun to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Alaska cruise

Our cruise started out a bit rocky. We were in the terminal in Vancouver for over 4 hours in line to check in. This was because it was Labor Day and the Customs people were not in full force. That being aside, the cruise was a marvelous one. We had plenty to do on board and when it came to the ports, there was more than ample time in each to see and do most everything we wanted. When we got to the Glaciers, they were spectacular. there was so much caving, ( the falling off of the glacier wall ), it was a sight to be remembered for life.

we had been to Alaska before, but this time we found it to be extraordinary. We saw totem poles from the past and present, native Alaskans performing rituals, where the gold rush took place, and so much more that it is too numerous to go into in such a short space.

I highly recommend this cruise to anyone who loves history, animals, and great scenery.

gold4us21's Tips

Carnival Imagination Carnival Imagination - If you like to do Kareoke, and you don't find the song you want to sing, ask the person running it if it is in the system, chances are it is.
Norwegian Sun Norwegian Sun - Try to get a stateroom on the 8th deck, it is convenient to all things on board
