Great cruise from Rotterdam to Rome. I had booked a Sky Suite because I didn't like the new balcony cabins. Fabulous care by the cabin crew. In general, if you want to praise something about this trip, then it is the friendly and perfect staff. I was spoiled very much. I liked the spacious Sky Suite. However, I missed a lounger on the balcony. There were only 2 rather uncomfortable chairs and ...

We were on the APEX Sept. 11, 2022 for a 12 day repositioning cruise Amsterdam to Rome. Celebrity admitted that the ship was understaffed by 225 crew members, and it showed. Dining service was impacted. One meal took 2.5 hours. Overall, the food seems to have slipped compared to past Celebrity experiences. We sent 3 entrees back for poor quality during the cruise. One tour guide was an hour late ...

Good But Not Memorable

We chose this cruise primarily for the itinerary given that the ship called in at Bilbao and Cadiz, the two ports on the itinerary which we had not previously visited. We also liked the idea of re-visiting Lisbon and Cartagena. What is a pity is that the cruise called at Gibraltar rather than either Malaga or Valencia which are far superior ports of call. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the ...

The Iberian cruise was on my wife's bucket list. Time, opportunity and availability collided and we booked the cruise about five months from the sailing date. Barcelona aside, I wasn't knocked out by any of the ports. My wife on the other hand enjoyed every stop. I detest ship sponsored-tours. The crowded, cramped busses and hordes of people along with the simply stupid high prices generally ...

A great cruise overall. This was my 5th cruise on the Reflection this year. Entire crew and service were terrific! And, everyone was extremely friendly throughout the ship. Was more then a bit disappointed with much of the entertainment. The production shows were good (although I'd seen them before) but some of the headliners left much to be desired. The majority of the performers in the ...

A very good experience. The ship is well laid out and there was always a free sun bed. The steam room and sauna are good - perfect to unwind after a day of sightseeing The itinerary was 1st class and evenings were very enjoyable because onboard entertainment was very strong. Manda the pianist is wonderful and the ship also had a very strong enrichment lecturer on board, daniel rossall ...

6th cruise with celebrity....will choose no other from now on. Boarding was a breeze with plenty of staff to assist if needed. Nice touch, getting a glass of mimosa, orange juice or sparkling wine as soon as we boarded. Dining room service was very professional. Great service from Roberto and Garth Had a window table most evenings. Very special mention about sommelier, Maggie. ...

Beautiful Boat, Horrible Food, Rude Service

Review for Amadeus Queen to Europe - Western Mediterranean

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

The Queen is lovely, but the food and service is very low. Examples: The purser has no one and two dollar Euros for you to pay guides with. They had 30 cents, Euro, for the entire boat and would not ever tell you if they would be getting more. The check in people are rude, even a bid mean, and love to tell you no to even the simplest request. Most of the help is from Romania, but it felt very old ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

We wanted to see the cities on the itinerary. We found the easy walking group catered for our needs and the guides were all excellent and very informative. The dining facilities were very good with well balanced meals and a second option for breakfast and lunch if needed in a quieter environment. The main dining room in the evening with over 180 passengers was impossibly noisy and it was ...
