Exactly What I Wanted From a Carnival Cruise
"Let me start by setting the scene for anyone who reads this. This is my first review on this site, but not my first cruise with Carnival. I am a 28 year old man from Alabama, and I sail with my wife, Sara, who..."Read More

So, Writing this review a few months late but better late then never lol....So my wife and I (38, 40) took our oldest son (18) on a cruise for his High school Graduation present. He graduated 5 months early so figured would be a great time to get away from the cold. We booked the Glory out of New Orleans mainly because of the convenience of not having to fly. I have been on Many cruises with ...

This Christmas we had the best Carnival cruise on the Glory we had in twenty cruises. I have been on twenty cruises and I can only remember one cruise Director from the Liberty, Stitch was his name. The rest are a blur until this Christmas we met Cousin Cookie (Jonathan Adams). OMG! He made this cruise the best Carnival cruise ever. Can you imagine eating lunch on Friday afternoon the day ...

We traveled on the Carnival Glory March 1-8, 2020. We flew in the night before and used Uber to get to the port in the morning. We got to the port at around 11:30, dropped off our luggage and it took about an hour before we made it inside and through security for boarding. We went up to the Lido Deck for a Guys Burger and a drink before heading to our room to drop off our carry on luggage. ...

We were the last cruise before the COVID started. This was my 6th cruise (2nd on Norwegian). First I must say the cruise line did an exceptional job of keeping the ship clear & cruisers safe. (All public restroom doors open, servers at the buffet, no salt/pepper, cream/sugar on tables, etc.) The reason for this review - The Norwegian Getaway is the most poorly designed ship I have ever been on. ...

The NCL free promotions for dining and beverages etc is a real differentiator. I have noticed that in the last few years the cruise lines are now up charging for everything and it is very annoying. I would rather pay a little more and not have to be nickel and dimed. At RC (Royal Carribbien) and Princess you now have many items on the menu which are at additional cost. Seriously - it just ...

I had been watching cruise pricing for a Spring Break cruise out of Galveston or NOLA for sometime. When NCL added the 3rd and 4th free perk the price dropped a ton and I pulled the trigger on the Getaway cruise for my family of four. We had done this itinerary before out of NOLA on the Dawn and loved it. We convinced another family to join us so it was a group of 8 on this trip. We all ended ...

Norweigan Getaway FEB 2020 Review The booking experience was a nightmare (I booked directly thru Norweigan). I ended up talking with several different NCL consultants and hands down they were rude and several mis informed me. I should have stopped there. I thought we were getting a good deal and liked the options so i proceeded with booking two cabins (two people in each cabin). First of ...

We were slightly apprehensive going on our first NCL cruise on a large ship like the Getaway given some of the negative reviews. However, we had a great time and can’t believe why some people are so critical. There are, to be fair a few areas that could be improved but overall a lovely ship with pleasant, helpful staff. We had a balcony cabin which was very spacious with a lovely shower (glass ...

I was a first time cruiser and was delegated by my group to research cruise lines, destinations, and deals. After countless weeks of research we voted on the Norwegian Cruise Line porting out of NOLA. We were very pleased with our rates, cabins and service we received from NCL before and during our cruise. We contacted NCL to book a group cruise, we received 10 balcony cabins and 1 solo cabin. ...
