With very few exceptions, a wonderful cruise

This was a 15-night cruise from Athens to Athens, via Istanbul. (Somehow, CruiseCritic did not list that as an option.) We were originally booked on a 15-night cruise from Athens to the Black Sea via Istanbul, but the itinerary was changed due to the war in Ukraine. (Thanks, Russia...) And then Silversea split it into two legs -- with most of the passengers being on the full 15 nights, but ...

We recently travelled with NCL, prior the cruise I called three different times to cofirm if we needed an PCR test, every time, even a week before the crusie, we were advise yes and this needed to be within 72 hours before sailing. I board a professional lab to do this for us. Basically I wanted it doinf professionally as I did not want it getting lost in the post, or us not doing it right. ...

Up to Azamara standard by this cruise

Apparently the first couple of cruises were pretty rocky according to reviews (and the Captain's public comments) but by our sailing the problems seemed to have been ironed out. Our wheelchair cabin was clean and newly-furnished including a well-designed shower. Service as usual was friendly, attentive and responsive. Food in both main dining room and specialty venues left nothing to complain ...

This was my fourth and probably last star clipper cruise. The clipper was recently placed back in service after a 2 year dry dock - where it seems it just sat with no real improvements. Decking was in horrible shape after 2 years of no use - some of which had broken materials and had to be taped off. Plumbing in our cabin didn’t work and needed to be fixed ( never really worked well but it did ...

Splendor? Not So Much

My wife, mother (86 years old), and I recently returned from a very after-season Mediterranean cruise, “Ancient Ruins of Greece and Rome” on the Regent Splendor. I believed that the Regent brand was about higher cost, higher touch, higher quality, which we bought in to. Disappointingly, only the “higher cost” part really stood the test on this cruise. To be sure, part of this was caused by ...

Excellent experience with Azamara

We were a little hesitant about getting aboard a cruise ship again. The crew and staff of Azamara were excellent, we very quickly realised that we were safer on this ship than being at home. The testing at embarkation was swift and very well organised and we were soon given the clearance to board the ship. A small group of us were shown the emergency drill, then onward to our cabin. The ...

First off, we had a fantastic cruise that at times was covid silly, but at the end of the cruise 100% of passengers and cruise guests tested negative. Masks worn at all times when moving about, but not eating or drinking. Getting to Athens and through civic test at the pier had its challenges, but relax you are on vacation, just follow the rules and paperwork. We civic tested before we left ...

This was our first trip to Greece. We have done other NCL cruise in the past. One of the most noticeable first thing was the Cruise was not completely full. There was probably more staff than the actual guests. Which was great! We had their personal attention all the time. Only one problem for me to not give 5-stars. We had a special dietary need requested but they failed miserably to make ...

Here's the Good, The Bad and the ugly: The ship is stunning. she's intimate, well designed , sails like it's on rails and has a very thoughtful layout. the cabins are really gorgeous with wall coverings that shimmer and back lit walls with residential furniture that makes you feel like you are in a high end hotel, not a ship. my hope is that all this wears well. being just on the 6th ...

We swapped to this cruise as our cruise on Apex ath the beginning of November from Fort Lauderdale was looking unlikey due to the entry restrictions to the USA. We arrived slightly early and were able to straight for our Covid test which was complementary. 20 mins later the results were in, just make sure you have pre registered all your details with the tester's app. Another 20 mins and ...
