Have cruised since 1997 with family and friends. I try to do at least 1 cruise each year. One of the best ways to relax.

Adventure of the Seas

June 2017 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Fantastic Adventure

My family sailed on AOS June 24 - July 1, 2017.  We had an AMAZING time.  I was somewhat concerned prior to sailing based on some of the reviews but we had a great experience.  The cabins were not as outdated as I was expecting, but the beds are a little uncomfortable. The service by the crew was outstanding.  Everyone we encountered was friendly and professional.  I loved the size of the AOS...Not too big and easy to get around.  The food is main dining room was great, all the meals we had were delicious and the deserts were amazing.  Our waiter (Florentina) and assistant waiter (Made) were the best. We had 3 cabins and Susanna, the cabin steward did a wonderful job keeping the room clean. Loved the shows and performances especially the Ice Skating performance.

My only disappointment was the itinerary change from St. Lucia to Martinique. Didn't really like Martinique, would have preferred if it were a sea day.  Otherwise the other ports were terrific, had a wonderful time on each.  My son (17) felt that they needed more activities for his age group.

Overall, we had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend this cruise.

Carnival Glory

November 2016 - Carnival Glory to Caribbean - Western

Thanksgiving Glory

My family and I did our annual Thanksgiving cruise on the Glory.  Overall had a good time.  The Glory is an older ship and is in need of some updating.  The service was very good with the exception Guest Services on the last day of the cruise.  Understaffed and waited in line for 50 minutes.  I must comment that the cruise director (Saffie) was wonderful.  She had a lot of energy and really kept the activities upbeat and fun.

The food was fine, not excellent but not bad.  I did eat in the specialty steakhouse and that was excellent. The productions shows were just okay, however the live bands were very good.

Enjoyed the cruise ports.  In Cayman did the Turtle FarmHappy.  Roatan, Honduras we zip linedBig Smile.  Belize, it was rainy and so my daughter and I stayed within the local port area.  We tried local food and it was delicious.  Some of my family members did a city tour and said it was good.  Cozumel, been there many times but I still get off and venture downtown.  

Although we had a good time, I definitely prefer the bigger and newer ships.

MSC Divina

July 2016 - MSC Divina to Caribbean - Bahamas

Great Value

I sailed on the Divina on the 3 night Bahamas cruise for 4th of July and had a good time.  My family and I enjoyed ourselves and really had no major complaints.  The ship is beautiful and kept very clean.  I was disappointed in some of the crew/staff interactions.  They are not nearly as friendly as the crew on other ships I've sailed (Carnival, Royal Caribbean, NCL).  Not many smiling faces, they appeared "aloof". Bar service was slow at times.  I loved that at night they had live music playing in all the lounges.  The disco was also great, the DJ kept the dance floor full.  The food in the buffet was better than I expected.  My only complaint regarding the buffet was that the tables weren't cleared timely.  Dinner in the MDR was good.  The portions were small but that was fine with me.  Didn't leave the dining room overly stuffed.  The desserts were delicious. 

The photo area needs to be upgraded to the portfolio system used on other cruise lines as this would eliminate the frustrating task of looking for your pictures. The casino area is smaller than expected for a large ship.  They're were also no Craps tables.

This was only a 3 night cruise but would be willing to try it for a 7 night sailing.
