WHAT A LET DOWN
Tired old ship with worn out carpets and furniture in public areas. Cabins compact not boutique. They said bathrooms were small - too right they were about the same size as an aircraft toilet. You couldn’t bend down in the shower ...
We choose this cruise to see South Africa. We have sailed many times before with RCCL and Celebrity.
We knew within minutes this would be our first and last Azamara cruise. This did not change as the cruise progressed.
Excursions were expensive and well organised.
Staff on this ship were spectacular.
Being sold Azamara with drinks included was an absolute joke. The included drink menu ...
We chose this cruise as it formed part of an Africa experience we wished to undertake by staying in Cape Town area both before and after the cruise. It is an ideal way for first time visitors to South Africa to get the opportunity to visit places they otherwise would not have bothered with and take the opportunity to see the Big Five close up. We met some great people on board who we will keep in ...
Crew as always is very friendly and available but found our room stewards did not clean up to AZ standards.
Our butler was excellent and followed up on the poor cleaning crew as did Philip the hotel director.
The room also is looking worn as some wallpaper is peeling.
The food is standard AZ as not bad at all but not gourmet.
Service all over ship and friendliness is what sets them ...
Chose this cruise as it meant i did not have to fly home after visiting South Africa. Embarkation was very good in Capetown, Cabin seemed a bit smaller than other lines (balcony). Very impressed with all the seating areas that were available and they were not closed for half the day.for art auctions. Did expect a bigger menu range at the dining room, and did find the gravy on what seemed all ...
Have been on 3 previous cruises that we loved. This time, boarding was slow, crew were morose for half the cruise until a few became friendly. Ship had been refitted, and in our opinion, whilst still great, was not as good as before with the changes. Entire drink menu mixers were changed so that drinks you previously liked, now were terrible with no option to have previous mixes. Restaurant ...
We made a atlantic crossing 2016 with Cunard QM2 from Hamburg to New York. It was New York fashion week theme 9 day cruise. The Programm and Food was excellent. Our cabin and restaurant was Princess Grill Category. We were very happy with this cruise.
Unfortunately this last Cunard cruise was not up to our expectations. We had again a Princess Grill Suite. Eating and dining was not very good, ...
This cruise, Symphony/ So Africa was a bucket list add on to a remarkable safari experience..As the title says the jury is still out.. Pros; beautiful ship, great staff, super spa, casino that was fun but only successful for the casino owners HAHA. Awesome food. awesome venues for food and drink. Clergy aboard (a plus) Great evening enterainment, Good music. Several tours very good ie: 4x4 ...
I judge this cruise against my previous Crystal Serenity trip, a few years back.
The old ship felt old despite the recent expensive makeover/dry dock.
At times I thought there was an odd vibration even on deck 8 fwd. For sure when you eat at the back of the ship on deck 11 you are likely in for movement.
Staff seemed spoiled by Crystal but not the passengers. The food spend seemed way ...
By comparison with 4.5 company such as Oceania and 4 star cruise company such as Princess or Holland, we do not consider silversea as a 5 Star cruising for the following reasons;
- at least 50% of the staff are not easy to approach, they are not smiling and it looks like we disturb them
- the butler of our room was not proactive and the few request we made got poor reception
- a lot of ...
