Where are you cruising?
 
Got a Carnival cruise booked? Tell us where when & ship! While you're at, share with us, your favorite Carnival ship.

I'm thinking of booking the Breeze for our next cruise. That's what my 15 year old daughter would like.

My favorite ship is the Inspiration. I've been on it 4 times. I'm afraid to go to the Breeze after sailing on Fantasy size ships. I'm afraid the size difference would be too much. Can you tell me maybe before the Breeze if there is another maybe mid size ship I could try?

My sailing history so you know Monarch of the Seas, Majesty of the Seas, Imagination, the Legend and my sailings on the Inspiration.

Thanks
Harold

Our next cruise was booked because my mother in law has never been to Key West.....so we are taking her....

she has traveled the world...spent a month in China...a month in Austalia....traveled all over Europe....is currently in South Africa for 2 weeks....

and she has never been to Key West....:D

Gypsywych June 30th, 2012 10:05 PM

North to Alaskaaaaaaaa **cruising in less than 80 days dance**

ahoys June 30th, 2012 10:07 PM

I'm sailing the Liberty on Saturday. This is my official milestone cruise!

I think my favorite Carnival ship is the Spirit. We sailed on her to Alaska in 2007 and I love the layout of the ship.

lhp..go figure huh? Next time I visit Key West, I will miss Fast Buck Freddy's...too bad they closed this great store.


Gypsy, I have yet to cruise to Alaska...hubby wants to, so we'll see...I need steel drum bands though:)

Gypsywych June 30th, 2012 10:18 PM

This is our first trip to Alaska as well. I'll be sure to bring back lots of pictures.

Do Native Alaskans play Steel Drums? ;)

linalcaplan June 30th, 2012 10:18 PM

We just said, "The heck with it, let's enjoy while we can!" Here are our next two (on the Spirit and the Miracle), after those we have a cruise from NOLA.

Hello all, New to CM..
We have sailed the Disney Wonder back in 02', but stricly Carnival since.
Disney is a Must do.
But my favorite for Carnival is the Facination. I really like the lay out of the ship, the dining room and they ease of navigating the whole ship.

Miracle would be a very close second,
followed by Liberty, then Glory.

We are booked on a B2B on Victory this September. Really excited.

Dave

Trip July 1st, 2012 09:48 AM

Hi Dave, and welcome to Cruisemates. We sailed the Fascination twice. She came across the pond, early,and did some short cruises from NYC & Boston. We sailed up to St Johns, on a 3 day cruise. The next, time she sailed from San Juan...one of my fave cruises. as we cruised to Caracas..At the time the Hollywood theme was so much fun..wonder why they decided to remove it all. Oh well:(




johnthed0g July 1st, 2012 09:53 AM

Not Carnival as such but they do own P&O UK, so we are off on P&O Azura next week as part of the "Grand Event" where all seven ships are in the home port of Southampton.

poohbear2000 July 1st, 2012 10:31 AM

Our family of 5 will be on the Carnival Valor July 21(Only 20 more days!!!!). :D We will be sailing to Grand Turk, Curacao, Domincan Republic, Aruba.

We have never been to any of these ports so excited about that. We were on the Valor in 2008 and loved the ship!!!

Nana123 July 1st, 2012 01:37 PM

We are cruising with the crazies September 30th on the Conquest out of NOLA. Going to Belize,Honduras and Cozumel. It will be my 13th cruise and my husbands 12th. All on Carnival. We have sailed on the Liberty, Splendor twice, Elation twice, Glory, Spirit to Alaska, Conquest twice, Ecstacy,Magic, and Valor.

Lovharvey July 1st, 2012 01:43 PM

My next cruise is BC6 on the Breeze. I love to cruise and really don't have a favorite. Have been on the Jubilee, Celebration, Ecstasy, twice, Conquest and Magic. Also took a cruise to Alaska on Princess. I know everyone prefers warm temps, sun and the beach, but, Alaska is really a must do, IMHO.

Capndinghy July 1st, 2012 04:50 PM

I am planning on cruising on the BC6 unless I get keel hauled.

We also have booked the Miracle Canal Transit from New York to Long Beach. I am looking forward to that as many of the Guttersnipes™ will be onboard.

I have booked myself and a friend on the Carnival Triumph in Dec 8, 2012. I have to say that while the Triumph is an older ship, I love the fact that the cabins are so large, it is kept so clean, well maintained and the staff so happy to take care of you; lots of activities.

I'm also now looking strongly at booking the Carnival Magic as prices have gone down and I like the port stops (Roatan, Belize, Caymans, Cozumel). I just looked last night and it's gone down to $544 pp for 7 nights. I'm hoping that by the time I book this one, the Magic will have worked out some of her "kinks."

sllabon July 1st, 2012 06:41 PM

Sailed on RCCL EOS this past February and it was probably the worst cruise we have ever been on. We have the Miracle for July and December this year. But the one I'm looking forward to is NCL's Jewel in a Haven Suite! Can't wait.

LanieK July 3rd, 2012 07:32 AM

We have a B2B on Elation out of New Orleans for Sept. 3rd and Sept 8th

Then we have a B2B on Magic on Dec. 9th and Dec. 16th

Then we are going to see what Celebrity has to offer on March 23, 2013 out of Ft. Lauderdale....14 day southern caribbean.

KiwiBird July 3rd, 2012 07:34 AM

Alaska on the Carnival Spirit.

I'm a happy cruiser July 3rd, 2012 08:30 AM

I will be on the Panama Canal cruise. I read your short cut review of the Magic on CC and loved it. Only wish I would have been able to finish it. It was by far the best review I have ever read.

I look forward to meeting you on the cruise.

But my next cruise is on RCCL in November, then back to Carnival in December.

Our next cruise is on the Splendor out of Long Beach. This will be our 10th cruise on CCL but we have done a few on RCL and Princess. We sail a lot out of San Diego and Long Beach because we don't have to deal with airfare. Did the Alaska one twice out of Seattle and that is the best cruises we have taken.

We wanted to try the larger ships so we sailed on the Dream back in Oct and it was nice, just too many people. We didn't find that things we bigger such as the casino and such just more staterooms added.

Hi KiwiBird! When is your Alaska cruise?

WestTxCruiser July 5th, 2012 12:17 PM

Our next cruise is Sept 2nd on the Conquest to Key West and the Bahamas. I am really excited cuz we have an AFT Wrap and an AFT Extended for this cruise. We decided to splurge on this one as it will be our last cruise with our son for a while. He will be going to Boot Camp for the Marines in Dec.
We have also only cruised out of Galveston so far, so looking forward to NOLA.
We have been on the Ecstasy 3 times, Conquest 4 times and Triumph 1 time. We are looking at booking the Valor (I think that is the ship they are moving to San Juan) for the Eastern Carib next Sept. I really want to see the Virgin Islands.
As for my favorite ship......I love the Ecstasy but the Conquest definetely wins out. The Triumph was okay, but it just didn't feel as warm to me.....you know that warm fuzzy feeling inside. :rolleyes:

Cruise Cat July 10th, 2012 05:58 AM

Magic August 26th to Western Caribbean. Favorite ship was still the Jubilee!

KiwiBird July 10th, 2012 06:51 AM

Still just Alaska.

Looking at a Caribbean cruise or maybe a European one. Would love to book the month of February 2013 on a ship or ships.

Sulross July 10th, 2012 08:16 AM

Upcomng cruises
 
Our favorite Carnival Ship is the Magic, but have not done a whole lot of Carnival cruising. With my signature you can see my upcoming cruises. Trying to get in 10 carnival cruises by end of next year to get to Platinum.

trplnckl July 10th, 2012 10:11 AM

This has been an interesting thread, thanks for starting it.

Our next cruise will be on BC6, the Breeze January 19th out of Miami. I suspect LovHarvey and I will have morning coffee together mare than once.

My favorite ship is always the last one I was on, now it's Carnival Magic and on January 27th it will be the Carnival Breeze.
