First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The wife finally talked me into taking a cruise and I'm glad she did. I insisted on a balcony room and she was glad I did. The ship is very nice and there is plenty to do and see, but I spent most of my time aboard in the casino. Most of the staff were very cordial and helpful. There's plenty to eat and a good variety but most it is average, even in the large dining rooms. On the down side, Guy's ...

I was skeptical to take another cruise out of Galveston with Carnival. My last cruise on the Ecstasy was five nights with stops in Progreso and Cozumel in June of 2008. On that cruise, I had an obstructed ocean view and felt like a stranger in a strange land. I’m not Texan. I don’t like country music. I have no tolerance for children running around in my vicinity. I don’t even like frozen sweet ...

We just returned from our Royal Caribbean cruise on Mariner of the Seas. It is our understanding that Mariner will be leaving Galveston and going to Asia in two weeks and Navigator will be replacing it in Galveston. This is going to be a good change, and there are so many things that are alike on both ships, that there will still be the same care and concern for its passengers. We drove in ...

Overview: We drove from home to Galveston the day of sailing. Arrived at the port around 2:00 and were in our cabin before 3:00. Both the embarkation and debarkation went very smoothly. The Galveston crew knew what they were doing. Overall the ship is clear and well maintained for it's age. The crew is one of the best. Every crew member I met throughout the cruise greeted me with a smile and ...

We just got back from our five day cruise on the Carnival Triumph. It was a fantastic week. I have some issues that require oxygen at times and the crew was extremely helpful getting me on and off the boat in a wheelchair. I found this cruise to be one of the best when it comes to the helpfulness and friendliness of the entire crew. The shows seemed to be average except for the night they ...

We traveled with 3 generations - my mother, me and my husband, and our two children, ages 1 and 6. All of us enjoyed the cruise a lot. They set up one of the kids areas as an indoor play area for children under 3, which was a nice surprise. They also had a playground every morning for the babies, and allowed us to check out bags of age appropriate toys. This was an improvement over previous ...

There will be some that trash the January 15th trip on the Carnival Magic. I know this because I heard people on the ship planning it. So let's get past the 2 big complaints first, since they were really out of Carnival's control. There were two very big problems this week. First, when getting on and off the ship in the Grand Caymans, tendering was outrageous., with those who were not taking ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

From a little background, my wife and I have cruised 22 times, and this being the first on Royal Caribbean. Most have been on Princess, Celebrity and Carnival. We selected this cruise because my granddaughters wanted a change from Carnival or NCL and with the Mariner we had hopes this would be an upgrade from the others. We drove down the day of the cruise from Dallas, our group of 13 people in ...

This was our first cruise on the Triumph and I was a bit skeptical as I had read somewhat negative reviews about this ship. It was my husband and I...booked this one just to disconnect for a week. We arrived in Galveston a few days early so that we could enjoy being tourists, and we had a great time. We stayed at the Harbor House and it was fantastic. The weather was mostly sunny and warm, ...

Booking: We booked online and never had a bit of trouble. We also booked out Excursions online and that too was seamless. We both ordered some surprises from Bon Voyage and the only issue we had there was not asking for an e-mail receipt and not being able to "confirm" our orders. Being a Texas Port, our Drink Tickets got to us after we had our first drinks during departure. Documents: We never ...
