I have a friend who owns a computer but shys away from chat rooms, bb's etc.
I know nothing of Carnival ships, so I told her I would ask here.
They want to sail on the Celebration. Already have it booked actually.
They want to know about amenities....hair dryers, robes, etc.
What does that ship have to offer? They are in their mid 40's, non smokers/drinkers and don't care for the bars off or on a ship.
They like the pools, jacuzzi's etc. They just want to relax.
He is a workaholic business exec with little time off, she is a ER nurse.
They don't go to the auctions, or care if there is internet access.
What else is there to do? Is this ship good for people who just want to "chill out"?
No kids, just the two of them in the western caribbean. Are the shows good, food,............
Hi Carole. I was just on this ship last year. The amenities are few....no hair dryers or little complimentary toilitries in the bathroom. We did however have robes (only available in ocean view rooms). The pool area is very small (as is all the common areas) and there are usually a lot of children around the pool. This is an older ship and not very "glamorous". I enjoyed my cruise on it, but then again, I didn't care if the common areas were small. The staff was friendly and I thought it was very relaxing. But then again, give me the ocean, a bar and a casino and I'm happy!
Well, he wont fly and she would rather lose a limb than fly so Galveston is the port for them.
Nitestar, they don't care if it is glamorous, just a few days away to re-bond with each other. Age groups don't bother them. They get along with all ages.
They are the quiet type who just want to have a romantic time together. They have never had children and no pets either. Their lives are too full with work to get away so peace and quiet is their motive.
I will let them know they need a hairdryer and should probably bring their own shampoo etc.
To be honest with you, I never went to any of the shows. That's one thing on cruises that doesn't interest me too much. I think they will have a great time and when I went, there were a lot of people my age on the ship (late forties).
Location: Locust Grove VA (20 miles West of Fredericksburg VA)
Re: Friend needs help Carnival Celebration
Carole, When I sailed Celebration in May 2000 the shows were GREAT as was all the entertainment. That was when she sailed out of New Orleans, 7 days. We loved her and had a great time. Donna-dsw also sailed her a month before me. I don't remember there being any hot tubs but I found the aft pool very relaxing. Most of the action is around the other pool. We found a number of areas that were relaxing. We had excellant service and our waiter was GREAT. When we sailed the Victory 4 months later he spotted us in the dining room and came over to us to say Hello. She is also an easy ship to learn your way around. Hope your friends have a great time.
Well, that's the way I feel too Aaron. They haven't been on Carnival before but had the opportunity for a quick 5 day cruise and they wanted to know what the ship had to offer.
Thanks for the help everyone!
When are you going NiteStar? That will make a difference as to how "quiet" the ship will be. I have heard several people remark from sailings this past year, that the ship was too quiet. Passengers went to bed early, etc. Food and service was good.
Hint: If you are driving....After cruise, if someone goes to pick up the car and return to pick up others and the luggage....Have the passengers waiting for the car to return to walk as far to the left as possible after leaving the terminal. FAR, FAR to the left. This is to avoid the traffic jam.
