Glad I was on for only 6 days

Booked this on board QM2 when the QE's Asian itineraries were all scrapped. Crazy cheap price made this unmissable. Compared to the QM2 this is the inferior ship in almost every single area. The vaunted ...

This was the cruise of our dreams....and New Zealand didn't let us down. Sadly there was much to disappoint on board. We found organisation often chaotic specially on days we had to tender. You had to queue ...

Disappointing cruise.

Ship-Voyager is a good size ship, but with the renovations, they have reduced public space for more cabins. Too many people squeezed into smaller areas. Even though it was recently refurbished, it is showing its ...

Very Disappointed in RCCL's Voyager of the Seas

My wife and I choose our cruises based on their destinations and have cruised since 1983 on many RCCL ships, as well as other cruise lines. The Radiance class are my favorite sized ships and the Serenade of the Seas ...

No Love for the Love Boat

My wife and I traveled aboard Sun Princess (our 54th cruise among various lines) because of a long-held desire to see New Zealand and Fiji. In general, our experience was that we have previously had on Holland ...

Missed ports, average food, service far below what it once was

Oceania admits they charge more because they offer SIZE, SERVICE, and PORTS. All we got on this cruise was Size. Our renovated cabin had a large depression in the floor next to the bed that was a major tripping ...

Carnival splendor not the best experience

Sailed with friends for their 50th birthday. Our first cruise and I had gone with the thought that it would be like a club on water, I was correct. I was not overly impressed: lines and long wait for most meals, ...

We are Diamond members with RCI, they seem to want to forget about the loyal passengers and only seem interested in Suite passengers. The normal Diamond Lounge has been taken away from Diamond members and given ...

Consistently Inconsistent - Look Elsewhere

This is a vessel that should have been retired a few years ago. Twenty year old vessels have lots of things patched together and some strange smells (urine and mold/musty) and sounds (creaking walls and elevators). ...
