Queen Mary 2

November 2016 - Queen Mary 2 to Caribbean

A Real Dance Cruise

The ballroom dancing activities of the cruise are what my wife and I really like the most. The lengthy dancing sessions every night and the Tea Party on sea days are wonderful ways of knowing fellow cruisers and making new friends. Plus, these activities surely get rid of those extra calories from those wonderful foods and desserts. The dance floor is already big by any standard for a cruise ship, but in almost every night, this is being dwarfed by the volume of dance enthusiasts hitting the floor. Since we returned from this cruise, we have been recommending this cruise to a lot of our dance friends.Happy

Norwegian Breakaway

October 2016 - Norwegian Breakaway to Bermuda

Great Cruising Behind Hurricane Matthew and Ahead of Nichol

Despite the 2 successive hurricanes bearing down Bermuda and the Caribbean, still it was a fun cruise onboard the ship. It could have been a lot more if we reached the destination port in Bermuda after missing the shore excursion in another cruise last May, also due to bad weather. I'll recommend this particular cruise ship and destination but never in the months where hurricane season in the Atlantic and the Caribbean basin is at its peak.Wink

Anthem of the Seas

May 2016 - Anthem of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Greatest Vacation We Ever Had

It was the greatest vacation my wife and I ever had in our 29 years of marriage. Except for the traffic condition going to the Bayonne port, everything went smoothly till the end of our cruise. The crew and the staff were very efficient and friendly. The ship was very clean and the hallways to the staterooms are wide - in fact, all the places in the ship were spacious. Dynamic dining was a great idea and it allowed us to choose the restaurant and the menu we wanted. There was a long list of daily onboard activities and there was never a dull and boring moment even at late hours. Since my wife and I are avid ballroom dancers, the Music Hall and the Boleros are 2 great venues for dancing every night aside from other themed dance parties in other venues like the Two70 and the Poolside. Overall, it was a great vacation and experience for us.Love Yummy Big Smile

othellocast's Tips

Queen Mary 2 Queen Mary 2 - Always use Kings Court for either breakfast or lunch; food selection and service (even though it's buffet) were great. Learn to ballroom dance before going to enjoy the night in this ship.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Do most of your shopping here - souvenir items, shirts, hats, clothes, costume jewelries are a lot cheaper here compared other ports .
Norwegian Breakaway Norwegian Breakaway - Lot's of dancing and parties on board...be sure to be on good fit and practice those those dance moves (Latin, Disco, Ballroom & Hip Hop) before the cruise.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Walking around the historic sites and shopping the stores in Old San from the dock is great. No need to get to a tour bus.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island) - Swimming in the beach wasn't good. There were rocks in the water. However, the complimentary lunch/picnic food provided by the ship was great.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Beautiful beaches and friendly people. Very low prices for souvenir items, such as t-shirts, hats, tropical shirts, etc.
Anthem of the Seas Anthem of the Seas - Be sure to purchase any of the Internet Package; you need it to share your experiences and photos hot while cruising. Yes, book your restaurant reservations and shore excursions ahead of time for some savings and to avoid lines.
