Worst cruise we have ever been on

Review for a South Pacific Cruise on Fiji Princess

10+ Cruises • Age 69s

Just finished a 7 night cruise on Blue Lagoon Fiji Princess. My husband and I cruise several times a year and this cruise was the worst experience of our lives. Day 1, no air conditioning and all windows are fixed and the weather very hot. We asked if we could be moved which they said they could move us but the cabin they moved us to had just had carpet shampooed and it took 4 days to dry and by ...

Very Good Cruise

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Paradise

Rehan NJ
2-5 Cruises • Age 49s

Carnival Paradise was good. Special cheers to Amber, our awesome cruise director, and the magician Anoop, who entertained us in the Elation Dining room with his tricks. The food was tasty, the entertainment and the shore excursions were good. The only problem was the fact that our room was congested. Some tips for you guys are:- - Don't miss the punchliner comedy club and Playlist Productions. ...

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Oasis of the Seas

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

I’d probably go 3.5 stars but, that wasn’t available. We’ve been on a few RC cruises and this one was a little disappointing. The crew did not seem as enthusiastic as we are used to. The exception to thy was our steward. Nice guy who did a good job. The food was good. No issues with the room (balcony). About three days before the cruise, I tried to get our drink packages ordered. Neither ...

Never again

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Azura

Royston Jones
First Time Cruiser • Age 52s

Was supposed to go to Mykonos, Souda Bay (Crete), Athens and Santorini. Bad parts: 1. Mykonos stay got replaced with Heraklion (Crete). 2. Me and my partner both got a sickness and diarrhoea bug and spent the last 3 days locked in a cabin having been told to isolate. We had no calls from the nurse to check on us, just a form to fill out which was left on the outside of our door. Once ...

Not what I expected from NCL

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Norwegian Breakaway

10+ Cruises • Age 44s

The breakaway is a beautiful ship. The crew made sure it was clean, however our room attendant did not do a good job. We got an inside cabin for 4 and it was insanely small. We have had inside rooms but this was by the far the smallest. The food was okay. We were disappointed because Shanghaiss never had any availability. Never got the chance to eat at the diner and when we tried the menu ...

One and done for NCL

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Norwegian Breakaway

2-5 Cruises • Age 36s

Cabin: Very quiet, only heard noise from our neighbors because they used their balcony consistently. View down was of the lifeboats. Not on the same side as the piers to watch the late runners. Balconies were small compared to other ships we have been on. Bathroom was nice and big, but do not think the “Club” aspect was worthwhile. The bottle of sparkling wine was nice but the snacks were a ...

Not really a premium experience / nickeled & dimed

Review for a Pacific Coastal Cruise on Sapphire Princess

2-5 Cruises • Age 27s

Overall, I would say "meh". 1. The stateroom was old and outdated, very reminiscent of the mid-1990s. The shower was small and the curtain did nothing to keep water out of the bathroom / bathroom floor. The bed was very comfortable however. 2. Upsell, upsell, upsell. They constantly try to upsell you on everything. Room service isn't free - you have to pay a $15 activation fee. At the ...

Ruby Princess May 2024 Nightmare

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Ruby Princess

ExPrincess Cruiser
6-10 Cruises • Age 64s

Worst. Cruise. Ever. I will start with the problem that pushed me over the edge; I Paid $95 for an excursion that left us (approximately 15 guests) in a very cold and windy Skagway parking lot for over an hour waiting for a bus and was then lied to when we returned to the ship by the so-called excursion manager. Took four days of our vacation to finally get our money back and the excursion ...

Skeptical then Amazed

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on MSC Magnifica

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

We sailed from 5/6 to to 5/10. I have to say that this line is so underrated. My son (7) and I (40) left on Monday 5/6 and it’s his 4th cruise and my 8th, never traveled MSC before, but my goodness, this is by far one of the best cruises I have ever been on. People complain about the food, yea it’s not Michelin Star quality, but it was actually very good, and available 20 hours a day, the pizza is ...
