Retired Special Agent, enjoying life in the AZ Mountains. We started cruising on Carnival with our friends and migrated to several other lines. I think we are sticking with Princess. I am a ccl holder and enjoy cruising and meeting new friends.

Grand Princess

March 2022 - 15 Night Hawaiian Islands (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Grand Princess

Great Cruise, ship very clean, no major issues

We enjoyed our Hawaii Cruise from LA. Stayed at the Double Tree in San Pedro, ate at the 22nd St landing. Free ride to the port and everyone was masked till we got on board. About 5% wore their masks all the time. Weather a little cool leaving LA. No rain in Hawaii. Overall a great cruise, met some new friends and remembered staff from our cruise on the Majestic in Oct, of 22. No covid issues for us, I did not wear a mask much only maybe in the elevators. Tested negative this morning using the free Govt. test. The Grand Princess was awesome, staff terrific.

Majestic Princess

October 2021 - 7 Night Classic California Coast (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Majestic Princess

Great Cruise, some issues with the Medallion App

Awesome Cruise, I give it a 10 as this was our first startup after Covid hit. Ship, crew, food were great. We had issues with the Medallion App, but got by. After we got home the app worked flawlessly. The Medallion itself is great and worked good on board the ship. This saved lots of time getting on and off the ship, and on board. Our Princess Cruise Planner Mike McKee is an asset to Princess and save us a lot of trouble.

Carnival Vista

August 2019 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Vista

Cruise OK

I was disappointed in the Vista layout and traveling through the casino to get anywhere. I like to gamble bit their was too much smoke. E-Cigs should have the same rules as real cigarettes.

August 2018 - 14 Night Alaska Carnival Journeys (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Splendor

Awesome Cruise the best ever

Alaska Cruise is the best, of all our cruises. We will return using air, boat and or car so we can spend more time at each port. Carnival Journey Cruise is the way to go.

Freedom of the Seas

January 2017 - 8 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Freedom of the Seas

Carribbean All Nighter

The cruise was fine, everyone seemed to like the food at Carnival better. Delta connections were delayed and airline non informative, if you fly delta make sure you have enough time to get to and from the Cruise Terminal.

Great Cruise and Ship

We enjoyed the cruise much better than a 4 day sail. My only advise is to get trip insurance and baggage security upon reaching Long Beach in completely negative. The only reason I got my bags back was a LE business card and lo-jack ID card.

Nawiliwili, Kauai

Took a taxi, saved $200 for four. Driver John a great guy, gave us a terrific tour both ways. Spent about 2 hours in town with lunch.

Honolulu, Oahu

Nice port, AZ Memorial (missed the boat half due to State of Hawaii, cancelling our visit). You need a least an overnight or two days. I was last there 30 years ago.
