About pmnoyes

My wife and I have been cruising, primarily with Carnival, at least twice a year since 2000. We prefer longer cruises, most memorable having been a 23-day trans-Pacific cruise from Long Beach, CA to Sydney, Australia via Puerto Vallerta, Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Fiji, and New Caledonia. I'm a 25 year veteran of U.S. Army Special Operations and have traveled extensively prior to our cruising days. Our first cruise was returning from a tour of duty in Europe aboard the Queen Elizabeth II in 1978. I have had a life-long interest in genealogy and have been actively researching for more than 60 years.

Carnival Elation

January 2017 - Carnival Elation to Caribbean - Bahamas

Half Moon Cay is great

We love Carnival Cruise Lines - they've always treated us very well and these back-to-back cruises were an extension of the same. These, our first cruises with Carnival as Diamond members were truly wonderful.

Carnival Ecstasy

November 2016 - Carnival Ecstasy to Bermuda

Beautiful Bermuda

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5-hour tour of the island with Mack Bulford, owner of Bulford's Mini Bus Service. His tour encompassed all the major scenic areas of the island and was accompanied with an excellent narrative throughout. We highly recommend Mack's tour which incidently cost less than half of the cost of the same tour through the cruise line.

Carnival Sunshine

February 2016 - Carnival Sunshine to Caribbean - Southern

13-day Journeys Cruise

The Carnival Sunshine is a beautiful ship and we enjoyed it immensely. Unfortunately, this cruise had an outbreak of gastroenteritis which caused a great deal of inconvenience for many aboard. Carnival did a wonderful job containing the outbreak by instituting several health measures such as stressing the careful washing of hands and ensuring only servers handled the food. The Carnival-sponsored shore excursion to Little Tobago wildlife refuge should have indicated the activity level as high. Many of the people who were booked on this excursion were unable to participate at Little Tobago since it involved an arduous climb to the top of the island. The disembarkation was the most disappointing of our many cruises with Carnival. Bags were placed in an area that was not marked with our Priority 1 zone and it took 1-1/2 hours to locate the bags. This could have been remedied by clearly marking the baggage area.

Carnival Fascination

May 2014 - Carnival Fascination to Caribbean - Eastern

Carnival Dream

November 2013 - Carnival Dream to Caribbean - Western

Carnival Freedom

March 2013 - Carnival Freedom to Caribbean

Dominican Republic, Curacao, Aruba

Carnival has always treated us very well and this cruise was no exception. We were disappointed that we were not able to get into Grand Turk but certainly understand the reasoning behind the decision based on the gastro-intestinal problems emanating from recent visits to the island. The rest of the cruise was flawless and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We're looking forward to our next cruise with Carnival this fall to Alaska.

pmnoyes's Tips

Carnival Ecstasy Carnival Ecstasy - In the fall, waters between Charleston and Bermuda tend to be a bit rough. Steel covers were placed over the cabin windows as a precaution although we didn't feel they were needed. Neither of us were bothered by the motion sickness, however, many other guests were affected.
