Really old fashioned

It should be the first cruise and should be a great experience. On closer inspection, the ship was outmoded, worn and not up to date. Data transfer to iphone or laptop a sheer catastrophe. The bed width (we had ...

Old Ship in Disrepair and Everything is in Spanish

I think that I can echo the same things about Pullmantur cruises that have been said here and agree. The furniture in the state rooms is in very bad condition and the collar around the hot tubs was broken. There ...

TRADING ON NAME

Cunard are very much trading on their name and need to sharpen their act. We were in a stateroom and the Queens Grill so not a cheap cruise. The amount of paper which arrived in our suite every day was quite ...

Ok but ?

Had fun, very disappointed about Kusadasi being canceled. This was the main reason we took this cruise. Once cancelled this kicked in the 24% VAT which was not good. I think crew was looking ahead to New York ...

Great Cruise, Not the Best Ship Design....

We chose this particular cruise because we wanted to experience Carnival's new ship and at the same time visit some of the ports in Europe we had not seen before. As we have come to expect from Carnival, ...

Good but not great; no Wow factor

Itinerary we missed Kusadasi due to the coup and had an extra day at sea. Sad to have missed it but understand the need to exclude. That aside we loved Rhodes Town, Valletta (Malta) and Messina (Sicily) but ...

Nice Ship, Food Average, Excursions Poor

We were in cabin 9296 which seemed to be a nice location. It is said to be an upgraded cabin and the the balcony is a little larger than normal. Since the balcony is slanted towards the stern of the boat, you do ...
