I just saw a 7 day cruise on Carnivalexpert.com Apr 10, $352.00 pp. from San Juan. Why is this so cheap? I know Carnival says their cabins are larger then most other cruise lines. Is this so with this ship, is it an older ship, what kind of condition. I really like the ports that the ship is sailing too. Am I expecting a lot for such a low price compared to other sailings in Apr. For anyone that has sailed this ship recently do they have an internet cafe and do they also have the 24 hr pizza place. I did a cruise in Dec on the Spirt and really enjoyed it
The Jubilee is one of CCL's older ships and therefore commands a lower price. In addition it is sailing from San Juan and because it costs more for airfare and take longer to arrive at the departure port it also does not sell quite as well. I can tell you that the itinary is one of the best going and I would love to do it.
i am booked on jubilee on may 1st this is one on the best itinary i have seen.
also i have done my research on jubilee. i seen few bad stuff about it but thats for every ship i have read about it...
in jubilee u won't be spendding lots of time on ship cuz u have lots of ports to visit.
My wife and I are booked on the Jubilee April 17 and are very excited about it. As was previously stated San Juan is one of the furthest embarkation ports (especially for us from Toronto, Canada).
All the research I have done indicates that the ships is one of the oldest in the fleet and she does show her age. We are aware of the negative things we've read about her and frankly don't care. The ship for us is only the means of getting to these great ports of call. The itinerary is faboulous.
Your quote of $362 is great. Our TA here in Toronot is now listing Cat 1A at $549 USD for April 10. (Flight and taxes NOT included).
My wife and I took that cruise 10/25 - 11/01 and it was terrific !
Sure the ship is older and smaller but the cabins are about the same as on larger ships. Don't remember about the internet cafe, but 24 hr pizza and more are available and actually the room service menu is pretty extensive -sandwiches etc.
Great ports of call, REALLY great ports of call.
Food on the lido deck is worth missing at breakfast, better at lunch and best in the evening but go to the dining room for the better stuff. Decent shows, good ride, good casino. Over all it was a very nice trip !
Marty I have a question for you since you were just on this boat. How is the gym? Since I will be taking my 2 teens they will need something to do. Did they have karokee on this boat and what about the disco. Thanks
The Carnival Jubilee will be transferd to there new sister company Princess or P&O Cruise in the South Pacific Later this year or early next year. Not sure. They did the same thing with The Tropicle. They moved it to Costa Cruises. Carniavl is up to something because I dont think they want to downsizes there fleet. Maybe its true that the want to build "the Ultimate Carnival Cruise Ship". The largest in the world.
Even if they did move the Jubillee (probably Holiday too I would think) to a sister company or sell it, I don't think it would be much of a downsize considering the many new ships being delivered in the next 2 years
Holiday 5-day Western Caribbean
Liberty 8 day Western
On most of the sites for Carnival this is what I find written about the Jubilee.....
The Fun Ship JUBILEE has enjoyed wonderful times on the seas. Since September 27, 2003, she has been sailing from her new homeport of San Juan, Puerto Rico, to the Southern Caribbean. Her new itinerary calls on St. Thomas/St. John, Antigua, Dominica, St. Kitts and Tortola/Virgin Gorda. However, starting May 1, 2004 she?ll be sailing to a new home. The sailing on May 1, 2004 will bring this wonderful ship to Jacksonville, Florida, which will be her new home for her 4 and 5 day cruises to the Bahamas for the rest of the summer.
