|

I love long sea days, so I looked forward to trying a TransAtlantric crossing for the first time. The last half of this 20-day trip is mostly at sea and I loved it. Big hint: if you are sailing from Europe to the US ...

Smooth Transatlantic Cruise

As avid transatlantic cruisers, we knew what to expect. We flew to Venice and stayed 3 nights, then boarded the Crown around noon on Dec. 2,2012. I believe the ship was pretty full since this was the first crossing ...

Wonderful Cruise

We had a wonderful cruise for our 30th anniversary. We loved the itinerary and because it was December the ports were not crowded at all. Norovirus was onboard but we never caught it. The staff was busy cleaning ...

Great time of year to cruise the Mediterranean

This trip was to celebrate my wife's retirement from teaching, and for once, we were able to travel at a time when school was in session and the crowds a little less intense. The weather throughout our cruise could ...

Wonderful Ports but Retirement Village Atmosphere

I'll start by saying we had a great time. We were a large group so that made it even better. The weather was 72 almost every day. We left on Oct. 15. The food was very good throughout the ship and the service was ...

Crown Princess is as Good as Ever.

The Crown is the oldest of the triplets and being 6 years old, she is still in great shape. We originally were in a mini-suite but was offered and upgrade to the second largest suite on the ship for less than $700. ...

Excellent Eastern Mediterranean Cruise

This was our third time on the Crown Princess, fifth on Princess, and eighth overall. The charm of this cruise is the incredible port and tour selection. The itinerary was changed because of a general strike in ...

Having read a previous review about this same holiday and the fact that they too did not receive a reply to their letter to Carnival House decided me that I must add my comments. We were at least informed about ...

Great time on the Greek Isles

I'll preface by saying this was a last minute booking with little preparation for the various ports. Our port activity decisions were based solely on an electronic copy of Rick Steve's book and the ship's port ...
