Don’t waste money on priority

Review for Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - Western

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

Experience on the ship was ok. Getting on and off was a complete nightmare. We had a suite on the ship which had priority benefits. Priority was non existent. We traveled with friends that did not have priority and they got on and off the ship way faster than us. Going on the ship we ended up in a room with other priority people, we sat there just to be ignored for about forty five minutes. We ...

Free internet is a joke. Priority access is a bigger joke. Paid $179, only to be told on arrival” it’s raining, not available today”. Then on disembark “ oh, priority not available today”. Be very careful on your excursions, they don’t tell you it’s a 3 hour round trip drive. Left out of Costa Maya, we were never told it was an hour and a half to get to the raft excursion until we ...

Beware the shops

Buyer beware: I bought praying cards and bracelets in the store on board the ship. The prices for BOTH items rang up for more than the sticker price. It was embarrassing to hold up the line while multiple staff members figured out how to fix the charges. In the tobacco shop, I asked how many cartons of cigarettes people were allowed to bring back to the U.S. tax free and was told 8 cartons. ...

We did our first carnival cruise right before covid was a thing on the liberty. It was a wonderful experience. I saw the paradise reviews and decided to take a chance since its out of Tampa and we live close. It honestly wasn't horrible. I'll start was cons...going into the buffet area is just annoying. My husband couldnt get the drink package without me getting it too and i dont drink. And there ...

Sailing from Tampa, arrival to the ship took almost 2 hours to go less than a mile. The embarking process went relatively smoothly albeit somewhat lengthy. Once in our Concierge cabin, despite repeated attempts we were unable to speak with the attendant until late the next afternoon - more than 24 hrs after arrival. (Most of the crew was terrific.) Cabin attendant was unreachable the entire cruise ...

I am a loyal Celebrity cruiser. Started sailing with Celebrity in the late 1990s, traveling with them to Hawaii in 2002, and Alaska 2005. My last criuse (before this one), was on the Celebrity Silhouette in Nov 2019, before the Covid pandemic, and that cruise was perfect. I just returned to cruising last week on the Celebrity Constellation, out of the Tampa port. Sadly to say, but this time ...

Cruise was used to host a reunion of U.S. Navy shipmates. 5-Day cruise was perfect for the event. Good itinerary with some at-sea days thrown in. Guest services very accommodating. Provided a conference room for meetings and a senior ship's officer to address the group. Ship arranged dinner tables clustered together. As is the custom on Royal Caribbean ships, a special veterans/first responder ...

Myself and boyfriend took our 4 children on the carnival paradise on 10/13/2022-10/17/2022 for their first cruise. When we got on the ship the staff was very welcoming and nice. Day 1 on the ship wasn't bad but the food in the lido dining area was disgusting the only decent thing was pizza pirate. Once I got my luggage I opened up our suitcase to put our soda in the fridge and our soda was gone. ...

And that's a good thing. While Carnival is the Fun Ship, some have written that it was too much. I disagree. All in all, it was one of the better ships (of more than 10) that I have sailed and my first Carnival in over 10 years (switched from RC due to the pricing and itinerary). The 2 days at sea allowed us to enjoy the ship and we did. Ocean view cabin (M202) was more than adequate with the ...

We have sailed on over 20 cruises with Carnival over the past 20 years. We are Platinum level. We have a total of over 40 cruises including other cruise lines. This is the first cruise with Carnival in over five years. We did not know what to expect. Embarkation was as quick. Our check in time was between 1200 and 1230. We got at check-in at 1200 hours. We were sitting in the ship eating by ...
