Default Jubilee

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

Apparantly, the Jubilee is moving to Jacksonville starting May 1, 2004. That may be why the prices are lower now. Just a thought!

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.

Vee,

Have you talked to Carnival to make sure the Jubilee is still sailing on May 1st.? I've been hearing that they are moving the ship to Jacksonville, Fla. beginning May 1st.

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).

Good Luck

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 !

I believe the ship has been "sold" and was being released to the other company this summer and will be redone and sailing elsewhere.

The Carnival site still shows the May 1st sailing date...the summer of Jacksonville sailings doesn't start until May 11th.

I'm going on the Jubilee 3/13. My TA told me that my docs are in the mail! There is a nice military discount for those who are eligible.

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

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.

I was on the Jubilee in October, 2003 with 2 friends and we had a wonderful time. We choose this ship because it is very port intensive and we enjoyed every island.

It is showing its age but our room was fine, the dining room staff was wonderful, lots to do at night (the karaokee was a blast), the gym was small but adequate, and, to boot, we got a terrific price.

Go and enjoy yourself. I'm glad I didn't allow negative reviews stop me from going on the Jubilee! Personally, I prefer the smaller ships.
