It has been a looooonnnnnggggg time since we have been able to post about cruises. I have another one scheduled in December on the Carnival Breeze. I cannot tell you how excited I am. Getting ready for that cruise, however, made me find some old videos from the Before Times. You know, before COVID took over the world. One of the videos I found was of the Carnival Dream Breakfast Buffet and Blue Iguana. The upshot? Carnival’s buffet wasn’t great. What was amazing was the other free food options they had– things like the Blue Iguana.Continue reading “Carnival Dream Breakfast Buffet”

Some folks cruise by booking the smallest cabin they can. I get that. It is cheaper, and lots of folks want to spend time out on deck anyway. I am a little bit different. I like spending quiet time in my room, and I want extra space to spread out. For example, we sailed in the Villa Suite on the Liberty of the Seas this Summer. Suite perks also add a nice touch to the vacation. Last month, I sailed in a Carnival Dream Ocean Suite. It was a great space, and I would like to take a minute to show you what to expect.Continue reading “Carnival Dream Ocean Suite”
I sailed the Carnival Dream just before Christmas, and I had a great time. I sailed in an Ocean Suite. This Summer, I also sailed the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas in the Villa Suite. Galveston Cruise Reviews readers know I loved the suite perks. Today, I am not writing to compare the two lines, the two ships, not the two overall experiences. Instead, I want to focus on one specific aspect of my trip. The Carnival suite perks included some very nice touches. Unfortunately, however, they don’t provide the same premium experience as does Royal Caribbean.Continue reading “Carnival Suite Perks”
