Celebrity Silhouette

December 2015 - Celebrity Silhouette to Caribbean - Western

Booking is easy with <img class='agent-replacement' src='/images/hideagent.png'>

This was the 3rd or 4th cruise booked with .  Their staff are really easy to work with.  The cruise was amazing.  The only thing I wasn't happy about was the excursion.  We actually booked one of our excursions through (their excursion company) and when I printed my tickets, it said we had to secure own transportation to the location.  (depending on which port we were going to dock, it was either a 5-10 minute walk or a 5-10 minute cab ride.)  In 7 cruises, we've never had to secure our own transportation when it was an "excursion" we were buying.  Therefore, you might want to amend this policy.  The excursion itself was great.  It's just the small print that gets you every time.  I will book with again in the future.

Carnival Sensation

April 2015 - Carnival Sensation to Caribbean - Bahamas

Carnival Sentation - Bahamas

I'll start off by saying that we had very low expectations due to a previous Carnival cruise.  We thought it would be about the same.  The original plan was to stay in our room on the balcony and enjoy the water.  It was still Spring Break and figured there would be drunks all around us.  However, when boarding, we noticed lots of families!  (much better than college drunks)   Our cabin was adequate (a bit small for a balcony room) but it had tons of storage unlike a previous cruise.  Therefore, this would be a nice ship for a longer cruise.  The food was good.  The service was impeccable.  The entertainment was good.  We saw the comedian (last name Little) and we saw the young man performing at the mid-ship bar.  He was pretty amazing.  We were at the very back of the ship on Empressa.  One flight up was Serenity.  One flight up after that was the buffet.  Needless to say, we didn't stray too much from that area.  We did go to the main dining room twice.  It was good.  The wait staff was pleasant.  The ship is a bit old.  Not sure when it will be retired.

Nassau, Bahamas - If you want about 1/2 a mile down Bay Street, you'll get to Junkaroo Beach. Local vendors and local beach.
Carnival Sensation Carnival Sensation - Bring a hair dryer. I was surprised they didn't have any. But I guess I could have asked my cabin steward.
