Every Thursday, we'll randomly select five cruise reviews to feature here! Plus, we'll send each member a Cruise Critic logo item. This week: Over the Shoulder Travel Bag -- we hope they enjoy it!

Carnival Dream Thanksgiving on the Carnival Dream by NeuroQueen
We decided just three months from departure to travel over Thanksgiving. I had read so much about the Cove Balconies and wanted to experience one. We are two fifty something nurses from South Florida and are seasoned cruisers due to our proximity to several ports. We used a vacation planner from Carnival and he did a great job for us. We traveled to Cocoa Beach two days prior to the cruise for some beach time. I looked on several web sites for accommodations and finally selected the Best Western Ocean Front on Cocoa Beach.

Oasis of the Seas So much better than we expected! by Elliegal
After reading some negative reviews here, we were a little apprehensive about our cruise on the Oasis. Also, it was our first cruise so we really didn't know what to expect. We need not have worried, however. From the minute we boarded to the minute they dragged us, kicking and screaming, off the ship it was nothing but FABULOUS.

Golden Princess Golden Princess to Hawaii by dwolfe
We flew into LA a day early and stayed at the Double Tree in San Pedro since they had a free shuttle to the pier. Getting on the Golden Princess was delayed a bit but very organized once everyone got moving. Had lunch in the dining room and wandered around the ship to get our bearings. The cabin is roomy but the mattresses on the beds need to be replaced. Rodolpho our cabin steward was excellent and kept our cabin in great shape and met our special requests promptly and happily.

MSC Magnifica MSC Magnifica Exceeded Our Expections Onboard Pricing by nolaguys
We've just returned from an 11 day trip on MSC Magnifica and thoroughly enjoyed our experience on board. We booked the trip over 8 months ago and were quite worried and apprehensive, or rather extremely worried after reading 8 months of mostly negative reviews and comments. We simply did not know what to expect but were prepared for the worst. However, we found most of the negative comments simply not true or isolated cases. MSC does a few things differently than other cruise lines, but, if you aware of this in advance, then it will come as no surprise once you are on board.

Norwegian Epic A very nice trip! by chiefbell
This was our first cruise on Epic, our 4th Norwegian cruise. The ship is very large and very nice. Embarcation was rather quick and our room was ready at 2pm. We are casino people, so we were impressed with the large casino. It takes up most of the open area of floor 6. It was a lot of fun and we do ok! There is really only 1 main dining room, the Manhatten Room. We only went there once and it is nothing to brag about. We told our server that we were in a hurry to make a show and she said she would do her best. She didn't. The food was not great and we were not impressed with that dining room. Continue reading A very nice trip!
