Disney Magic

November 2015 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Disney Magic

of all cruise lines Disney is absolutely the tops!

If you have children this is absolutely the best cruise line. Btw parents or grand parents if you think you can relax to peace and quiet, think again. You want to make the most of the cruise, you are not bored your on the go. The shows are top notch dont miss any of them. Other cruise lines seems to be hard to find much to do except but this isnt the case with Disney. It was amazing

Norwegian Pearl

August 2015 - 7 Night Alaska Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Pearl

Relaxing vacation

This is my first time on this line.  There is a differences between the other cruise lines.  One thing I like about cruising is about meeting new people, and I like it where on the other lines you get seated with other cruisers for meals in the dining room in less you specifically request to sit by yourself.   On every meal you where seated just with the party you came in with.  I like the option that you are relaxed about what you wear, no matter the restaurant you choose.  I did find service was quite slow no matter the restaurant.  Also felt the entertainment was low quality.  Our room was the smallest I have ever stayed in.  The positive is I loved the breakfast selection in the buffet, so many options, better than the other lines offer.  The cruise was very relaxing and we loved Alaska.  I think the excursions are very expensive for what they are.  This is my 19th cruise and if you do your research you can visit these ports at a minimum.

Star Princess

April 2015 - 15 Night Hawaii (San Francisco Roundtrip) Cruise on Star Princess

Nirovirus Cruise

Kauai helicopter tour Napali Coast by helicopter

See All Photos »

I am not rating this cruise based on the Nirovirus.  We were disappointed mostly by the food on lido and the dining room.  This is our 2nd cruise on Princess.  And our 18th cruise total varied on different cruise lines.  The lido food was like cafeteria food, very disappointing.  The dining room was better but not much of a selection.  I think the ports that we visited, we should be there longer, we cruise for 15 days total and think we should stay later in the evening.  Our room was nice and clean and our steward was one of the best.  We stayed on E103 deck 8.  I will never stay in the upper forward of the ship again.   It was so noisy, considering we had rough seas for a few days on the starting of the trip.  It was so loud, had to get up and buy ear plugs.

schieferecke's Tips

Anthem of the Seas Anthem of the Seas - Take advantage of all the activities expecially the Ifly and the rock wall, bumper cars. Why not, its included.
Cruise Glacier Bay -
Norwegian Pearl Norwegian Pearl - The strawberry short cake in O'Shannon is the best dessert on the whole trip. Our favorite restaurants where O'Shannon and IN.
Lahaina, Maui - Road to Hana, we rented our own car. $53.00 for the day pre-book
Ensenada, Mexico - No choice, after 4 days at sea you want to get off, but if you don't, don't bother
Hilo, Hawaii - Seeing the waterfalls, we rented our own car $53.00 for the day pre-book
Nawiliwili, Kauai - Helicopter ride, book on your own, the cruise line way expensive
Star Princess Star Princess - Stay in the midship. Don't buy the drink cards, they are expensive. Also Excurisions are overly priced. I was able to find all my excursion on either Orbitz or on my own. On Kauai, we booked a helicopter trip, they wanted 325.00 on the ship and we found it for 189.00 per person. I highly recomm
