Let’s see what we can find… Life is just happening. What else we can see through the tall grass? Beauty in form of a pure white bird. Sometimes beauty is hiding in the little things. Maybe beauty is peace. Beauty is holding on tight. Maybe beauty is hidden in patterns of yellow flowers… Beauty could … Read more Traveling Through Nature and Defining Beauty

Well, during our vacation in Alaska my major quest was looking for wildlife, specially whales. Check out my Alaska posts to find out what I found on my quest. I already have 2 post out, it will take me few more post to describe all the experience.
Carnival! That sound like celebration and fun, right? Well the definition I found said that carnival is a traveling amusement show, other said festival. I think Carnival’s name live somehow it’s definition. Last time I was sharing with you my experience visiting different ships during ship inspection. In this post I am going to talk about Carnival Valor and Sunshine. Each Carnival ship have their own uniqueness but over all each ship offers fun, great food, relax time and great destination at great value. Other great thing about Carnival is that all members of the family can enjoy it from little kids, to teenagers, parents and grand parents.
I previously wrote about Carnival Valor in another ship inspection that I did on August. You can check out my previous post here. Still on this inspection I took other interesting pictures.
The Carnival Sunshine
Carnival Sunshine was formerly Carnival Destiny built on 1995. It went to dry dock on 2013 for a renovation of $155 million dollars. Now Carnival Sunshine have the major renovation that features all the Fun Ship 2.0 upgrades.
I personally think that it’s amazing the look and all the fun amenities that Sunshine can offer for the whole family. Let me show you what I saw…
Can you see yourself enjoying these great amenities? Are you ready to relax and have fun at the same time with a beautiful balance vacation?
Sunshine is in Port Canaveral and she will be there offering 3 to 8 day cruises. But later on she will be moving to other ports in 2016. During the summer 2016 she will be on Virginia, South Carolina and finishing in New York around October. She will be back to Cape Canaveral. If you want more information about Sunshine let me know I and I can help you with your travel story. 😉
Two weeks ago I was able to experience different types of cruises during four different cruise inspections. We visited Regent Seven Seas, from Royal Caribbean,Enchantment of the Sea, and from Carnival we visited The Valor and The Sunshine. Three of the inspections, started at looking at different staterooms, their commodities and more. Then we walk around the ship looking the different entertainment areas ending with a delicious lunch. Regent Seven Seas experience was a little different, they didn’t have any room available to show us because they were all full with clients belongings. They gave us a tour around the ship, later they gave us a presentation while they served us fancy snacks with wine and mimosa. During the presentation they show us the different kinds of rooms and the comparison prices with other cruise lines. Later they spoil us with the most wonderful lunch.
All the experiences were very nice, definitely there is market for everybody, for every budget and preferences.
Let me show you what I saw…
ROYAL CARIBBEAN ENCHANTMENT OF THE SEA
The experience was nice but I wasn’t impressed. I know that other Royal ships are much impressive that’s the enchantment.
REGENT SEVEN SEAS
Well this was another experience, in another level. The setting is more intimate, all the rooms have balconies. The ship have a combination of simplicity and luxury at the same time. The food was unbelievable delicious. They brought us different plates, small portions that leave your mouth drooling for more but then came another treat as delicious as the previous one.
Another thing about Regent Seven Seas is that upfront the price is higher than other cruise lines but take a look at this…Look at everything that the price includes.
The service is outstanding, the presentation formal and informative. I like the elegance of the staff. Of course you can tell I was more impress with Regent Seven Seas but that doesn’t mean that other cruise lines are not good. Is just matter of preference. If you want to know more about any of these ships let me know. I will talk about the Carnival Ships inspection on my next post.
