Amazing Cruise Experience

Review for Star Pride to World Cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was our first cruise (ever), and it did not disappoint. We were hesitant to take any cruise because the idea of joining thousands of people on a ship did not appeal to us. When we ran across the smaller Windstar Star Pride online and its itinerary (Greece/Italy), we decided to take the chance. The ship has been beautifully redone to accommodate more passengers (up to 312). We were impressed ...

Very disappointing not a luxury cruise

Review for Scenic Eclipse to Greece

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We were on the 30th May sailing and were very disappointed with our cruise to the Greek Islands from Athens ending in Malta. The Company's booking admin is appalling, we had our agent chase tickets etc and they eventually arrived 3 days before departure, some people on the cruise never received anything. so little outside space, 8 sun loungers, 8 deckchairs, 8 cabanas between 200+ guests, ...

This review of how bad Silversea and Silver Spirit are could go on for 100’s of pages, so here are bullet points as to why you should avoid this Royal Caribbean in disguise cruise line and like me mourn the days of great food, service, and a feeling of being wanted, valued and safe. 1. Boarding was a nightmare; they lost my booking and it turned out the had cancelled it as the ‘FCC’ dept had ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

The phenomenal staff made this trip the dream trip for which we were hoping. Our trip was held in May 2022 when Covid was raging, and the United States were requiring a negative Covid test for reentry. Due to this, there were only twenty-five passengers on our ship, and many of the staff told us that this was one of the very first trips they had had since the pandemic began. The long hiatus ...

Terrible experience. No 5 stars by far

Review for Silver Spirit to Mediterranean

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Chaos is the basic for this experience. Not only caused by the Covid restrictions but overall there’s a huge lack of quality in service, attitude and amenities. Considering people are paying at least over $1200,= per night, you are expecting the absolute best. What is delivered is a Royal Caribbean cut money policy where not the quality but the quantity is boss. Expect poor, poor beds and ...

Review for Seabourn Encore to Mediterranean

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

It was so nice to be back on board a ship and sailing once more. The Encore was nearly spotless, so the 2 year Covid lay up allowed for maintenance and it showed with a sparkling appearance. With fewer than 250 guests both weeks and more than 400 crew, shall we say we were pampered like never before? The dining venues were competing for our patronage! And the food was excellent and varied in all ...

Review for Viking Sky to Mediterranean

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

After a two year delay, it was with some trepidation that we resumed cruising on Viking Sky’s Ancient Mediterranean Treasures voyage. We had read that the checkin procedure was long and tedious but from the moment we were picked up at Athens airport to the arrival in our room, everything went quickly and smoothly. We booked a penthouse veranda room on the 6th floor and it was spacious and the ...

Ship needs a lot of work - lower your expectations

Review for Star Clipper to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

Never lost
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...

Extraordinary Mediterranean Cruise

Review for Viking Sky to Mediterranean

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Our cruise was incredible. All the processes of getting on boat, leaving boat was very smooth and little tension. The amount of people on boat to service us was incredible. I believe we had 600 passengers and almost 300 Viking employees. The cleanliness of all areas was terrific. We were lucky as it was early in season and every location we went to, we were only cruise ship (or one other) entering ...
