Wind Surf

December 2017 - 7 Night Jewels Of The Windward Islands (Bridgetown Roundtrip) Cruise on Wind Surf

First Wind Star Cruise

My first Wind Star cruise but they do everything I like when on a cruise ship and with so few people it was never crowded and I did not have to plan to avoid a crowd at any time. You spend much more time in port and sail at night so really get to experience the "real" caribbean. I had no complaints about the ship or the cruise experience and can't wait to experience another one soon.

Carnival Elation

April 2017 - 5 Night Bahamas (Jacksonville Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Elation

Really liked this ship

I really liked this ship for the open spaces on decks since the waterslide is stuck on deck 10.  I am not a fan of Guy burgers so lack of that was a plus in my view.  My interior room E185 was very large with just the one bed and largest shower I ever had on a Carnival ship. This was also the best crew I have ever experienced, all so friendly and willing to help on any request.  Never went to dining room in evening and Lido food was the usual and no complaints.  Used the dining room for breakfast and that was prompt.  Especially enjoyed the steel drum music by Shirvy.  Lots of kids and the usual problems with no parents around to control behavior. Ship was clean and staff was always cleaning.

Carnival Conquest

January 2017 - 8 Night Southern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Conquest

Carnival Sunshine

November 2016 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Sunshine

Enjoyed the Sunshine

Have wanted to sail on the Sunshine after reading what was going to happen to her while on the Destiny.  Finally got the chance after thanksgiving and I really enjoyed what they did to her.  The serenity decks were really nice and the colors in the hallways were perfect.  Yes there are choke points around Guys and the Cantina but this was a minor inconvenience and was made worse by people stopping and discuss what they were going to do or go.  Ship needs island music as other music options were not real good.  Food was fine and the design of the Lido buffet was really nice and wish the other ships would go with this design.  I enjoyed all the ports and we have great weather which is 90% of the fun on a cruise. First cruise as platinum so easy on and off ship and was off ship with no hassle by 8:30 am.  Had lunch at Havana Bar one day and the cuban sandwich was a nice change from the usual. Really nice ship and I would like to sail on her again.

Carnival Fascination

April 2016 - 5 Night Bahamas (Jacksonville Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Fascination

Great weather

I cruise for the islands and to watch the sea not the ship, this is small ship but except for a few irritants I had a good time.  Hard to find a quiet space on the deck with shade and do not like the lifeboats above the Lido which hide the view.  Kids running and horseplay in the buffet with no shirt or shoes on was not appreciated. Food to me was not as good as I have experienced on the larger Carnival ships.  Had interior room on Upper deck and that was just as expected and crew were very good.  Easy to get on and off and for a 5 day getaway with good weather and a good price I will do another on this class ship out of Jacksonville.

klemi's Tips

Mayreau, Grenadines - walked to top of hill for beautiful views of Tobago Cays and this is where we had the beach Bar B Q and they really do a great job and had a steel drum that played to make this a perfect day
St. George's, Grenada - walked up hill to old fort and then took taxi to grand anse beach and spend time at Coconuts bar and restaurant on the beach, nice day and beautiful beach
Little Bay, Montserrat - walked around and beach right at where we were dropped off was not as nice as others but found a nice beachfront bar and spent some time as this was our first stop and was trying to get a feel for the island.
Bridgetown, Barbados - took excursion before return to airport that drove around Barbados and stopped for lunch and tour of old sugar plantation, good way to spend time before airport
Pigeon Island, St. Lucia - tender dropped us off inside the park and walked up steep hill to old fort and walked around to see the old ruins of barracks, views of ocean and two nice bars on the property to get a refreshing drink.
Bequia, Grenadines - neat little town that caters to yacht folks, walked to beautiful beach and had lunch and cold beer at Jack's right on beach, hated to leave
Wind Surf Wind Surf - there are lounge chairs on bridge deck forward that always seemed to be empty
Belize City, Belize - went to Caye Caulker and wanted to go here for so long was not disappointed
Cozumel, Mexico - walked out of port area and crossed street to Albertos seafood restaurant and had a great meal for very reasonable price and got away from the crowds at the port
