Norwegian Dawn

March 2014 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Dawn

Spring Break fun with friends!

Cruise from New Orleans is so easy!

Left port and our guys disappeared until dinner time. The meal that night was the best!

And the guys loved the sports deck. Hubby and I enjoyed the entertainment and our stateroom was very nice and roomy for the 4 of us. Loved having the balcony as well.

Great service, the dinners were a little repetitive though which was the only minus of the food for this cruise. The dining rooms seemed to serve the same thing with only one change per night.We got a little tired of that. 

The ports of call wonderful!!!  Enjoyed each one!

The staff is very kind and helpful, the cruise ship was well maintained.

Loved the secret window to the bridge..little known hidaway.

Wind Surf

February 2013 - 7 Night Yachtsman's Caribbean (St. Maarten roundtrip) Cruise on Wind Surf

Best Cruise with My Husband ever!

How to describe this cruise..first of all, the ship is so intimate and calming..there were only about 300 people on this cruise. No kids, and we love kids! NO bright lights etc, it was so relaxing to have the sails brought out and the music so exciting and the captain so accessible! The food wonderful, the staff excellent and so friendly and fun to chat with! Also the state room was nice and well maintained! The ports of call were the very best!

If you love to cruise, try this cruiseline out...Sailing yachts!  We were so impressed our friends went the next year!

Disney Magic

April 2010 - 7 Night Western Caribbean Disney Adventure (Port Canaveral roundtrip) Cruise on Disney Magic

Disney- both sides of the cruise coin!

My guys loved being able to come and go as they pleased on this cruise! They were well cared for and loved the kids

activities!

The food...well we cruise and we were expecting big and grand...the dining rooms were the best part of the meal.

The food...was not up to what we had thought it might be, the service was lacking for Disney.. we have done both parks and all parks Disney has in the US so we understand Disney, this was a disappointment.

We had not taken our kids (elementary age) on a cruise before til this one and it as a good first cruise for them.

Great destinations and the kids club was terrific. My husband and I had plenty of time to hang out just us two and the food was great.

Majesty of the Seas

October 2004 - 3 Night Bahamas (Miami roundtrip) Cruise on Majesty of the Seas

irvinhouse's Tips

Disney Magic Disney Magic - The private island is the best we have been too for a Cruise line and the food there was wonderful even if they did run out of a few things. Good variety of thiings to do for all. Over priced I think for a Mouse
Nassau, Bahamas - Ist time there and it was amusing, we loved the straw market
Majesty of the Seas Majesty of the Seas - Short enough for a kids first cruise and long enough for them as well. The ship was well taken care of, the cabin a little smaller than others we had been in. We plan to do RCL again.
Wind Surf Wind Surf - Small and relaxing...goes to islands we had never heard of before and not the normal tourist full of cruise folks places...most of the time we were the only ones around!
Cozumel, Mexico - Been here before, did the Dolphin excursion with friends and it was well done
Norwegian Jewel Norwegian Jewel - Could have had more for older teens as they seemed to be a little left out at times and the 3 on 3 basketball never happened which is what they loved. They did love watching the staff play soccer at night.
