Had heard Alaska was an experience you should not miss. It was our 50th anniversary and it was our present to each other. The weather was exceptionally good as what rain we had was at sea & at night the temp was in the high 50's and ... Read more

We had tried to get to Bermuda twice before, but hurricanes prevented it. We booked on the Breakaway and had a wonderful experience. Embarkation was delayed due to bad weather, but that was the only 'problem' we had. We had booked a spa ... Read more

Pride of America? Ha! No one was proud to be working on this ship and we certainly did not feel proud to be Americans after leaving. Our travel agent booked us our honeymoon to cruise around Hawaii on The Pride of America and I wish we had ... Read more

A Family Honeymoon that fulfilled every expectation. Embarkation was long but expected with such a tight turnaround for the Gem. She is an impressive ship upon first sight for rookies and the hustle and bustle of the crew loading up and ... Read more

I chose this cruise because we had gone on it last October and loved it. We had the kids last time (8,10,12) and they were a little bored around the pool. It is more of an adult pool. However we booked the Owners suite and it was even ... Read more

we were gifted a "free cruise" in which it only costs us an admin fee for the cruise line plus port fees. A small price for a 7 day cruise. We paid the upgrade to secure an aft balcony on the 14th deck. What a fantastic room with ... Read more
