A "Dream" Cruise
While searching for my birthday present, my husband found a great gift online. It was a seven-night Carnival Dream cruise departing October 19, 2013 leaving from nearby Port Canaveral. The attractive itinerary visited the islands of Nassau, San Juan, St. Thomas and Grand Turk. Our travel agent ...
Celebrity Summit - New England & Canada - 14-Night Fall Foliage Cruise
Our 14-night New England & Canada cruise departing September 7, 2013 was the second of our Back-to-Back (B2B) cruises on the Celebrity Summit, so we were already on the ship when our cruise began. We kept the same stateroom #3092. A glance out my stateroom window the morning of the start of...
Celebrity Summit - Bermuda Here We Come!
Many weeks after booking our 14-night New England & Canada cruise (September 7, 2013) on the Celebrity Summit departing from Bayonne, NJ including airfare from Orlando, FL to Newark, NJ, we discovered that the Summit would be cruising to Bermuda on a six-night voyage the week right before our two...
Feel Like Royalty aboard the Crown Princess
Recently, our daughter?s family relocated to London for business reasons. We had not seen them for a year so we checked airline prices for our planned visit. We had sticker shock at the high cost of airline tickets and decided to check into transatlantic cruise prices. We discovered that for o...
When Irish Eyes Are Cruisin on the MSC Poesia
Last year I attended a local Irish Entertainment show. There were flyers on every chair announcing a 7-night Western Caribbean cruise on the MSC Poesia departing from Port Everglades, Florida (Fort Lauderdale) on February 2 called Andy Cooneys Cruise of Irish Stars 2013. Although we never crui...
Oasis of the Seas - Itself a Destination
Although the sheer size of the ship intimidates many passengers, I absolutely loved all the extra amenities and options. The Oasis is so massive that it feels like you are at a large hotel or resort rather than on a ship. We never felt the movement of the ship. When we booked our cruise, we di...
Carnival Freedom - Freedom to Be Yourself on Vacation
We departed Fort Lauderdale June 30, 2012 on an 8-night cruise to the Caribbean aboard the Carnival Freedom. Ports of Call were Ft Lauderdale, St Thomas, Antigua, Tortola and Nassau. We received an email close to our sailing date from Carnival requesting that passengers delay arrival at the pie...
Feel Like a Celebrity on the Celebrity Constellation
Although we have cruised many times over the years, this was our first trip with Celebrity. We usually prefer the newer, mega cruise ships for the greater variety of amenities & entertainment, but the Constellation didn?t disappoint. The not-so-small Constellation holds approximately 2,449 pa...
Carnival Sensation - A Sensational Value
While looking for something special to celebrate my husband's birthday, I noticed in an email from Carnival, a terrific deal on the Carnival Sensation departing right on his birthday, March 1. It was a 3-night cruise to the Bahamas (Nassau) which was just perfect for us since it departed from Po...
Freedom of the Seas - Ship Tour & Lunch
Freedom of the Seas - Ship Tour & Luncheon We all love to cruise and getting a good deal is part of the process. On a dreary Super Bowl Sunday (2/5/2012,) getting the best deal on our cruise ship was not even an issue. We were about to experience the most expensive staterooms on board the Fr...
