We spent 4 weeks in the USA and choose the relaxing way to get back home. Upon arrival in Europe, we have done away with the time difference and are ready for the everyday life. This was already the 6th time we came home by cruise after ... Read more

It has been 25 years since we cruised on Norwegian, but this was a special cruise for our 40th wedding anniversary. (We are platinum members on Carnival.) Ship was very elegant, but layout was difficult to grasp. Food was different but ... Read more

The Good: 1. Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze. We did not bring a lot of luggage, therefore the easy walk off was a great option. We were out on the pier in Southampton within 15 minutes of the clearance for ... Read more

Firstly, we chose this cruise mainly for rest and "landed" in the UK without the dreaded jetlag! We stayed in the Westin, very close to the port pre-cruise and had a complimentary van transfer which took less than 5 minutes...$20 ... Read more

Average experience. Our reason for choosing was Tampa departure, drink package and gratuities included with our mini-suite selection. The martini bar was very well staffed but nothing special. Celebrity has ice bars. The cigar lounge was ... Read more

We have cruised with a number of lines including NCL before and took this trip partly due to the good deal, (as it was a repositioning trip for the ship to travel to Europe), and partly as we quite like the transatlantic crossings with ... Read more

It has been a long time since we did a long cruise (this one was 14 nights). Overall the cruise was good but we can see where cost cutting has changed the feel of this company's ships. We has a BD class of cabin with a balcony. The cabin ... Read more

While everything on our trip was just fine there wasn't anything that made us feel special or say, "wow." All areas of the ship were clean and the staff was polite and smiley. My 9 year old enjoyed the kids program and I ... Read more

We selected the Norwegian and the Jade for it's overall value, ports of call and time of year. We were delighted when we found out that it had just undergone a complete refurb three weeks prior to our cruise. The embarkation process was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was a choice of what went out of Tampa. Royal Caribbean had an old ship for more $$$ or Carnival an even older ship. The perks certainly had something to do with it also. We had our daughter, son in law ... Read more

The ship was totally under staffed The food which you had to wait for wasn't worth waiting for. Cold most of the time. The bartenders or lack there of were rude and acted as if they didn't want to be doing their job. It took until ... Read more

My daughter and I cruised on the Jade, with a lot of wonderful people. The first day at sea, the ship felt very crowded. Open areas were full of drinking sunbathers. Our first stop was Cozumel, having visited this island on more of a ... Read more

I'd never cruised before. I mean, I've taken the casino cruise out of Port Canaveral and the Spirit of Norfolk, but nothing like this. Our cruise left Tampa and took its time getting to Cozumel, then we cruised down to Costa Maya for the ... Read more
