New to cruising...one completed and 2 more scheduled....I definitely have caught the cruise bug!

Norwegian Pearl

June 2016 - Norwegian Pearl to Alaska - Inside Passage

Beautiful Alaskan Summer Cruise

We had the most wonderful weather for our Alaskan cruise!  And there were so many beautiful wildflowers and various shades of greens on the hillsides;  not at all what I was expecting to see in Alaska!

Carnival Triumph

March 2016 - Carnival Triumph to Caribbean - Western

First Carnival Cruise

I must say overall, I had a good time.  But, after cruising on Princess, I was disappointed with the quality and quantity of the food, both in the buffet and at the seated dining.  We had an oceanview room and I slept on the sofa pull-out...it was NOT comfortable.  The room did not feel cramped, nor did the bathroom. 

 

On the plus side, the entertainment was spectacular!  Also, the bartenders are generous with the alcohol in the mixed drinks.

Island Princess

November 2015 - Island Princess to Panama Canal, Central America

First Cruise Experience

I really enjoyed cruising with Princess.  The Island Princess was beautiful and sooo clean ( they even let us tour the galley, and it was spotless!!).  The Food was excellent with so much variety that I am sure any preference could be satisfied.  The staff/crew were always helpful and considerate!  The only thing that held me back from giving a five star rating was the entertainment; I thought there would be more "shows".  Additionally, the "destination lectures", although informative, felt more like sales pitches for the excursions.  I often felt like the whole cruise was targeted to selling something or the other;  jewelry, art, excursions, future cruises....instead of focusing on providing an unforgettable experience on the current cruise!  That being said, I will definitely cruise with Princess again!

jdavis003's Tips

Norwegian Pearl Norwegian Pearl - The most enjoyable spot on the whole ship was the "The Great Outdoors" on Deck 12 (Aft); we ate breakfast there every morning!
Carnival Triumph Carnival Triumph - Lots of the veteran Carnival cruisers I met said the Triumph is their LEAST favorite ship; not as many amenities as Carnival's newer ships.
Island Princess Island Princess - You will probably need a map to get around your first couple of days; all the elevators don't go to all the floors, and it takes a while to learn "fore" and "aft" !
