Review for Costa Smeralda to Mediterranean

User Avatar

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

Ended up on the Costa Smerelda as our MSC cruise was cancelled due to only allowing schengen passengers. Food - bland and basic - there is no pizza on the buffet of an Italian cruise ship and if you want pizza then you have to pay more than you would pay in central Rome for a pizza. Otherwise food in restaurants is bland, meat is cheap and poor quality and selection is very poor compared to ...

Our First Cruise Ever, and Probably our Last

Review for MSC Splendida to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Today we’re on a cruise for the first time, but this is been such a poor experience I wonder why people do it at all. We were excited and read everything from the cruise company, many reviews and watched videos from cruisenews, Emma, and Gary. Before this, I was thinking hey - we can cruise to the Arctic circle or go transatlantic instead of flying, but now I’d really have to think. What sort of ...

The safest i have felt for over a year . Ship was only 50% full due to rules , felt like the ship feels when you stay on board when in a port of call. Always found a lounger ,seat , we had a table on our own as everyone did . SO good we booked again ,the only chance of feeling like your on a top grade cruise. Food was great crew were great. So logistics as it can be a bit complicated , The ...

We chose this cruise as all passengers needed to be from the UK, fully vaccinated and have passed a PCR test within 3 days of travel. This gave confidence that it would actually be safer to go cruising than stroll around the local shopping centre (where masks appear to have been abandoned). Another factor for this cruise was that it wouldn't be full. In fact, there were less than 1,000 ...

Review for Borealis to Europe - British Isles & Western

Borealis is a nice ship, and some areas have clearly been refurbished in few months that Fred Olsen have owned it. Our Ocean view room on deck 2 was clean, and the carpet was new. The shower flooded onto the floor every time we used it, so we created a dam with a spare towel to keep the water in. It didn't cause a particular problem for us, but we felt for the lady who had to service the room ...

Marella Explorer 2, back into service, ‘Weekend Escape’ from Newcastle

We were kindly invited to join a friend (who I had worked with for 4 months on an NHS Test & Trace mobile testing unit) and her partner on this 2-night sailing as they wanted to try it to see if they would like cruising. Obviously, they were conscious that with all the current COVID-19 protocols in place, this sailing would not be like any ‘normal’ cruise, but hopefully it would give them a good ...

Exceptional Experience

Review for Celebrity Apex to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

Our family of four from the United States, two adults and two children ages 7 and 10 had the pleasure of cruising with Celebrity Apex the week of July 9-17, 2021. We were very pleased with Celebrity Apex. The service, food and amenities on board were truly top notch. What made this cruise unforgettable was truly the service our family received on board. The staff worked hard to make sincere ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We are a married couple of 63 and 66 years, and have long wanted this trip to see Norway from the coastal side. It was a wonderful experience. Norway showed its high mountains and deep fjords from its best side. On the ship which is not very big, we got beautiful food from Norwegian local ingredients and good service, and good information about the places we passed. No stressful ...

Dress Rehearsal nowhere near ready

Review for Golden Horizon to Europe - British Isles & Western

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We actually sailed out of Portland not Portsmouth and it was the Dress Rehearsal Cruise for six nights. The ship is brand new and lovely as were the staff. The main problem was that neither were anywhere near ready for paying passengers. There was so much wrong its difficult to know where to start. 1. Food and Drink - probably one of the main reasons people cruise on high end cruise lines is ...

First time in Yacht Club!

Review for MSC Virtuosa to Baltic Sea

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We were lucky enough to have our bid excepted for an inside on yacht club which was our first time experiencing the ‘ship within a ship’ on MSC. We did not queue once the entire stay! Boarding was easy and simple. Before we went we weren’t sure about having a butler or pool attendant ready with towels when we appeared on the sun deck but we soon warmed to it. Everyone was professional and was ...
