  1. I went to Aruba on the RCCL Adventure of the Seas, but I had to leave from Puerto Rico to get there. It was my favorite cruise so far!
  2. That's what I'm trying to do. He's never been to the Caribbean or on a cruise, so he asked me to do a little research for him. I guess I just assumed that people post their likes and dislikes in the form of reviews all the time, so no one would mind sharing their personal experience pertaining to these ships/itineraries. Then I will show him what other people have thought and maybe that will help him decide. Thanks for your opinion though.
  3. Thanks to everyone for the quick replies. I hadn't thought of how weather might affect the San Juan departure. Thanks for pointing that out. I cruised on the Adventure of the Seas in '05 from San Juan and I was able to find airfare on Jet Blue for $89 each way JFK-SJU. I'm seeing that is not still the case. Prices are a lot higher now! I know that Orlando is pretty cheap to fly into because I lived in that area for three years. That is the only reason I'm considering the Glory, because I'm not that interested in Nassau. CruiserKatie- I agree with you about St. Maarten and St. Thomas. Love them both. San Juan definitely isn't a good beach port, and that's why I thought it may be fun at night. I think I'm pretty torn between both Liberty sailings...it might kill me, but I might just have to let my fiance decide. He doesn't get to do that very often!
  4. I'm thinking about this cruise for my honeymoon. It kind of worries me not to have any sea days, but DF just wants to lay by the beach and I'm cool with that. Did the lack of sea days make for a different experience than you have on other cruises? If I can find decent airfare from the Northeast to San Juan I might do it. (I cruised on the Adventure of the Seas from San Juan in 2005 and sometimes JFK has good deals!)
  5. I am having the worst time picking a cruise! I have been on three cruises (1 Carnival, 2 Royal Caribbean) and my fiance has never been on one. This will be our honeymoon and we are going with Carnival because the Early Saver rates can't be beat and we want a balcony. (This will be the first time I've had a balcony!) Here are the options we're considering: 1. Liberty 7 day out of Miami (10/31) with sea day, San Juan (at night), St. Thomas, St. Maarten, sea day, sea day. 2. Liberty 7 day out of Miami (9/19) with Half Moon Cay, sea day, St. Thomas, San Juan, Grand Turk, sea day. 3. Glory 7 day out of Port Canaveral (9/26) with Nassau, sea day, St. Thomas, St. Maarten, sea day, sea day. 4. Victory 7 day out of San Juan (9/27) with St. Thomas, Dominica, Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua, St. Kitts. (NO sea days!) If anyone has been on these ships or itineraries I would appreciate advice. Or, any other suggestions are welcome. I am leaning more toward Eastern Caribbean because I've been to Belize, Roatan, Grand Cayman, Aruba, Key West, and Cozumel (twice). I've been to St. Thomas and St. Maarten as well, but DF really wants to lay on some nice beaches and I really enjoyed these two islands and I think he would too. Thanks for any help!
  6. Wow, it must be the time to cruise in Central PA...all of us Williamsport folks. I'm in State College now, but born and raised in Jersey Shore. What a great time of year to get out of here! Thanks for the great review!
  7. Alexkrn46, I know what you mean. When I was on the Carnival Paradise last year lots of people complained about Belize and Honduras saying that they were rundown and scary and they wouldn't get off the ship. I wanted to smack them. The people were so friendly and we loved both countries. While in Honduras, the owner of the spa we went to (she's american) told us, "You don't fly to Paris, walk around the airport and say you saw Paris. One town does not represent an entire country." I thrive on that multi-cultural experience!
