I am planning on taking a cruise in November for 7 nights. What suggestions does everyone have for the best cruise? Location? Ship? What tips do you have for taking a cruise in general?
I do not have kids. I was leaning towards the Eastern Caribbean or Southern Caribbean. I would be flying from Cincinnati down to Florida. I do not like the cold weather at all.
I like kids, but I don’t want a bunch of unsupervised children running around on the cruise ship.
defiantly carnival Cruises.
I’ve took two already with carnival and my third with carnival will be in 9 days.
I do recommend going on Carnival Miracle [8 day cruise]
Or Carnival Glory [7 day]
Glory has a 7 day cruise leaving out of Port Canaveral for November 22, 2008.
It’s going to:
& Nassu, Bahamas
It’s a Eastern Caribean.
Glory is probally about 5 years old at my best guess so it’s not outdated.
& It has Internet Service thats accessable on any laptop for free [wifi] and they have cellphone service, though it’s 2.67 a minute on the boat so i do recommend that you use your cellphone on the islands.
Nassu,bahamas=67 Cents a Minute
St.Maarten=1.67 Cents a Minute
St.Thomas=1.67 Cents a Minute.
So my BEST guess would be to use it the most on Nassu and use it moderately on the other islands but dont use it on the boat at all unless it’s a complete emergency.
Get to the pier by adleast by 1:00 so that you’d be one of the first to board, and the pier’s building where you go through massive lines you’d end out waiting about 1:30 minutes to get on, so that’d put you on the boat by about 2:30 which means…… you wont be denied boarding.
REMINDER: YOU WILL BE DENIED BOARDING IF YOU DONT HAVE A BIRTHCERTIFICATE OR PASSPORT, AND IF YOU GET TO THE PIER 90 MINUTES OR LESS BEFORE THE SHIP IS DESTINED TO SAIL!
BUT passports could be required as early as June of 2008.
So check in about wether passports will be required in november, if they are and you dont have one than you better
get one or you’d be denied boarding.
Bring Motion Sickness Pills, b/c even if you think you wont you could because the first couple night are always rocky.
Also, try not to get a Room on the rivera deck because it’s the lowest deck and you will feel the full force of the ocean.
Bring lots of Sunscreen & Bring your own Tolietries just in case.
I really Hope i Helped!
Have a Fun Cruise!
