The waiting game

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Costa Fortuna

Growing old waiting
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Embarkation and disembarkation a total cluster of disaster. Instructions are not clear. If you have booked an excursion there is very little chance of making it on time. Food is not that good in the buffet, better in the dining rooms. Communication is very lacking and it’s a lot of waiting and waiting. Communication is so bad it warrants a repeat. Lots of waiting and it causes frustration. ...

Old ship in desperate need of refurbishment

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Anthem of the Seas

Jeppardy7
6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

It’s a large ship full of gimmicks. Maiden voyage was in 2015, and it shows. In desperate need of updating. Don’t bother with the spa experience. The steam room is falling apart, the walls and ceiling literally coming down. This is also charged as an extra 130 dollar experience for the week. On voyager class , a proper sauna was included for free. Many of the lockers in the men’s changing room are ...

The Good, the Bad and the Worst. Celebrity Cruise.

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Celebrity Equinox

WGPearson
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

This is our second Celebrity Cruise and we have two further ones booked. But beware - there are some pitfalls within a Celebrity Cruise. The Good: Great staff, lovely cabins, good destinations, good variety of menus in “free” dining, facilities on board excellent. The Bad : No self service laundry facilities and the cruise ship charges ! The tours are really expensive. The specialty dining is ...

Don't waste your money!

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Ventura

Cazpatt
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Had read previous reviews about Norovirus but had hoped they had finally got rid of it. The first worrying sign was that our cabins weren't ready until 3.45pm. The library was also closed. Now for the drinks. I ordered a Pernod and lemonade. They don't have it on the ship so I ordered a Southern Comfort. Surprise surprise they don't sell that either. So water it was! Went to the Waterside buffet ...

Benmiller1982
First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Our first ever cruise and will definitely be our last the food was not even the standard of a harvester and the best way to describe the whole experience was Jeremy Kyle on water we were kept awake every night by people in neighbouring cabins on the balcony shouting and playing music at 3am.The buffet was chaos and even the booked restaurants were not much better the food arrives literally 2-5 ...

My family and I have been on several cruise lines and this was one of the best! The food was amazing, zero complaints there. Always something different in the buffet. Dining had daily specials plus an everyday menu which was great! The servers are AMAZING!! WE LOVED ARMANDO!!! He was our server in the dining from the Philippines. He made us feel so comfortable and took really good care of us. ...

Harmony of the Seas

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Harmony of the Seas

Madi_2000
First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

This was my very first cruise experience ever. Most of the staff was super helpful and extremely nice. They always greeted everyone with kindness. We liked our stateroom and we LOVED our maid in our hallway. She was extremely nice and would go above and beyond with making our rooms tidy and comfortable for us. They had a lot to do on the ship. We enjoyed the silent dance party the most. The food ...

Good cruise. Big ship. Ok service.

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Harmony of the Seas

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Of the 10 cruises we have been on this is by far the largest ship. And make no mistake, it's is gorgeous. The staterooms are roomy, the sopping areas are well appointed and spacious. Plenty of activities to keep you busy. The "Grease" show in the main theater was spectacular. As was the show in the aqua theater in the rear of the ship, it was unique and impressive. The kids club is top ...
