Anthem of the Seas

April 2017 - 8 Night Bahamas (Cape Liberty Roundtrip) Cruise on Anthem of the Seas

Carnival Pride

November 2016 - 7 Night Bahamas & Florida (Baltimore Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Pride

Third time a charm

My third cruise with Carnival.  Last two cruises were with Norwegian and Celebrity.

The food was much, much better on the Carnival Pride and much better than on my previous Carnival cruises!  Don't understand why the Prides food was better than other Carnival ships with a higher rating!  Staff was wonderful in all areas but especially in the dining room. Boarding the ship in Baltimore was a little dicey.  Disembarking seemed never ending and worked the opposite of any other of the twenty-five cruises I have been on in many different countries. The ship itself is in great condition. Only used the buffet for lunch.  Sometimes hard to find a seat.  If I had a complaint it would be that some areas around the ship were very smoky.  Lots of smokers on this cruise.

Celebrity Summit

July 2016 - 7 Night Bermuda (Cape Liberty Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Summit

After Five Celebrity Cruises to Bermuda it's time to stop.

My favorite part of the cruise was the destination.  Although the ship was refurbished in 2016 it was only in the public areas.  We had a balcony cabin on deck eight & the cabin could use some serious refurbishment.  Storage and bath size are great. Carpeting & window treatments could use an upgrade.   Dress code was downgraded.  Instead of formal nights there were chic nights.  The majority of cruisers looked like they were dressed for the beach!  The food took a dive along with the dress code.  On lobster night, which was always special, instead of the waiter removing your lobster tails from the shells & asking if you would care for clarified butter, you were left on your own to tackle the tails, no butter.  Although the meat might have been partially cut from the tails in the kitchen it was still a messy task.  On Top Chef (of tv fame) night we had a difficult time trying to pick something that wasn't outlandishly crazy, although the fixed menu was available.  The waiters seemed very overworked to me.  

Like the title of my review, we've been on this cruise 5 years in a row, same week & we did love this ship.  Not to large.  My biggest peeve would have to be the 40 minute wait for early dining WITH A RESERVATION!  On my 4 prior cruises this did not happen.  Who ever is heading the dining department needs to be replaced.  I feel a little sad thinking that we won't be taking the Summit again but the price keeps rising and the amenities keep falling.

Quantum of the Seas Quantum of the Seas - Checking in was a breeze. The track your luggage on your phone is a joke. I downloaded the app and was told it didn't always work. Got my luggage around 8pm! Never, ever did I ever wait that long.
