Bad. Don’t do it. Try Virgin instead.

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Norwegian Breakaway

Sad At Sea
2-5 Cruises • Age 46s

Lack of food options is impressive. They don’t even have a pizza place. Becomes a food dessert at 9 pm. Only options in a “late night” restaurant include: sauerkraut, chili as a meal, and hot dog. Not even chicken fingers or pizza. Only things will make your gut feel worse than it already does from whatever hospital like food you ate earlier. Large portion of casinos slot machines don’t work ...

Pride- Bahamas

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Pride

2-5 Cruises • Age 37s

I was not impressed with this cruise. We previously cruised with Disney and there is simply NO comparison. The ship is old, dated and the service lacks to say the least. Our cabin attendant was great. But the others were just there. Customer service was just rude on the two occasions I had to deal with them. We made the best of the time spent on board. Grand Turk is incredible! We were kept on ...

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on MSC Magnifica

10+ Cruises • Age 24s

To say the least, the service on this cruise ship was horrible. Every bar is a nightmare to get a drink and unorganized. Communication between their own crewmates was horrible with so many workers not knowing where to find things or have correct info often even giving us false information. Unless you could sleep with nonstop alarms and sirens going off in the mornings, noone was still asleep past ...

The Jetstar of cruises!

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Carnival Splendor

2-5 Cruises • Age 27s

It's October 2023, a friend comes to the group inbox "guys guys we gotta do a cruise". I instantly think ok I'm interested, I've never been on a cruise and I'd like to try. I eagerly ask "ohh what ship is it?" With the response "oh Splendor! It's so good". Instantly I'm on alert. I've heard alot of odd things about Carnival but I kept an open mind & after a good amount of research I kinda knew ...

A Sweet Suite Trip

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

Ade Afloat
10+ Cruises • Age 75s

Our second mini cruise with P&O spending some non-refundable credits. Together with ROL, our preferred agents, we'd worked out how to best spend our credits and on this one we were able to book the Mayflower suite on B deck. Our first suite on a P&O ship although we'd regularly sailed with Fred Olsen in their Premier Suites. We were on a three night hop over to Zeebrugge near the lovely town of ...

First and Last Disney Cruise

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Disney Wonder

Not A Fan
First Time Cruiser • Age 66s

Traveled with my 23 wheelchair bound, 20 and 7 year old. The staff was great at check-in propelling us to the front of the line. The check-in staff made the mistake of giving us gold stickers with "Concierge Service". We assumed for the continued wheelchair service? Nope. We were overly and enthusiastically welcomed onboard until we were asked for our room number. Then we were treated with ...

Oh, What a Nite

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

10+ Cruises • Age 75s

Older ship with lots to do. Great customer service, super cruise staff, attention to details. Menus have changed but food is excellent with variety of choices.Quick turn around in restaurants Shows were terrific with "Grease" being the highlight of the cruise. Although the ship was full and filled with children, crying babies and lots of young people there were ways in which to avoid the crowds on ...

Great Service, Great Food on Allure

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Allure of the Seas

10+ Cruises • Age 63s

We returned from a 4-night cruise on Allure. It's still a great ship about to go into much-needed dry dock. The good: 1. Embarkation and debarkation. The cruise port staff is wonderful. Parking at the port wasn't too bad when the garage opened at 10:00 a.m. We had The Key and it was worth the money for boarding the ship early, as well as the wonderful disembarkation day breakfast ...

Haven Experience

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Norwegian Breakaway

2-5 Cruises • Age 55s

I have recently seen lots of bad reviews of the Breakaway, and wanted to add a more positive one. The Good: Although the ship is older and showing some wear, we found everything to be very clean. There was always someone cleaning, polishing, and sweeping the elevator lobbies and stairwells, etc. We did experience the issue with our toilet not working one day, but a quick call to housekeeping ...

Tailored for younger people

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Carnival Vista

6-10 Cruises • Age 65s

This cruise would get a much higher rating had we known at booking that this cruise was not what we wanted. Vista is highly rated for outdoor sports and activities. I am retirement age and look primarily for food, excursions, and traditional athletic activities like weights and saunas. The cruise was geared to younger people. The food quality was overall under-performing except at formal ...
