Recommended Posts

A "Journeys" cruise is usually 10 days or longer.  We were on a 14 day Journeys cruise to Hawaii and there were more activities, including talks, dance lessons and meet and greets.  There was also more variation with entertainers and a 3rd "throwback" elegant night.

Hoy crap, that looks like fun! (And with the lineup of classes, seems fairly similar to what we had on our Sitmar cruise in 1986.)

 

I'm totally going to book one of these sometime! Almost like summer camp for adults!

I wanted to add, that there is a free craft class in the library on sea days, on throwback day there will be food that is no longer on the menu, that there will be local chefs demonstrating their culinary skills and that there will be local entertainment from most ports. I am going on the NOV 2 Breeze journey out of orlando. We are so excited!

I could be wrong, but I think this is a 12-day itinerary

from another Carnival Journeys cruise.

 

GLORY passed thru here on 21st. February this year

We have booked three Journeys cruises in a row.  My review of the first one is below.  The second one is a Panama Canal transit and the third is Hawaii.

We are booked on the Mardi Gras in September 2020 15 day Caribbean Journey Cruise. I’ve never been on a journey cruise. This is also our milestone 25th cruise and we will be turning diamond on this cruise. I can’t wait.

Hope you booked an expensive cabin that OBC of 25% comes in handy. My Milestone was in Feb on Glory Journey cruise. The 500 dollars helped me come home with more money than i spent on the ship Have a great Cruise

We were so lucky!  We got a Havana cabin w balcony. We’ve never stayed in the Havana. I keep looking for new news about the Mardi Gras.  Right now it doesn’t really show any pictures that are definite.

Hubby and I were, too. I don't know that we'll ever be satisfied with anything less now.

We've done several Journey cruises and we love them. Few things to be aware of, guests considerably older, tons of platinum/diamond so those perks aren't really much good.

 

Also, FYI, one of those was the Hawaiin cruise you're considering. We didn't think much of 10 days at sea cuz we love to lay out. Well, we had a 30 kts headwind all the way to Hawaii and all the way back ( I know, sounds impossible). Outside decks were closed, lounge chairs strapped down, and we missed 2 ports due to high seas. 10 days inside the ship were too long. Now, we did this in January, so probably not the best time of year. I'm sure this isn't the norm, but it sure ruined our vacation. Think I'd fly if I do it again. The Atlantic + Pacific are whole different birds than the Caribbean.
