We booked this with 9 family members to celebrate Thanksgiving hoping for a stress free holiday. what we got was 4000 people on the ship, Long lines for everything and poor service' Dining: We were forced to book 7:10 before we left on the cruise asw nothing early was available. Only one dining room for reservations. The other two was a free for all.Dinner took two hours with no time for ...

Four Night Thanksgiving Cruise from San Francisco to Ensenada

This was a four night Thanksgiving cruise out of San Francisco to Ensenada. Despite having 4,000 passengers aboard, 1,300 crew - service was good and all my complaints and issues were promptly and satisfactorily resolved. Last year, I took the Ruby Princess Thanksgiving Cruise out of San Francisco, with only 1,300 passengers aboard. While I prefer a smaller ship, I think the crew of Royal ...

This was a greatly anticipated cruise. I was delighted to be sailing again on a ship with HA, as I had many grest memories of this company. However it was very disappointing. I purchased the Have it all package. What a waste of money. I only bought it for a couple of glasses of brut wine with meals. But... The wine I tried of x 4 varieties on the first night were shocking sweet ...

Embarkation. Best we have ever had. Used Verify for Vax and test status, so easy and quick. Cabin. SS category very spacious and clean. Ice delivered twice a day. Cabin stewards and general staff. Amazing, friendly and helpful. Cafe. Awful, awful, awful. Dining room. Good at start, but declined. Nowhere near as good quality as experienced on New Amsterdam 4 years ...

Our third cruise on Carnival after a long wait post-Covid. We were very impressed with the quick embarkation (given that there had been issues for the previous two cruises). The ship's decor throughout is basically awful with a pink colour scheme that ranges between 'interesting' in some parts and tacky in others. The food was quite okay for the price but I noticed that portions had diminished ...

We could not wait to get back on a cruise after waiting 3 years (the Australian Govt made us wait and wait for cruises to restart) and booked as soon as we could. Embarkation - The Sydney Overseas Passenger Terminal is a great facility and the process was reasonably quick and well executed. Stateroom - Balcony cabin on deck 9. Standard cabin - good storage, very comfortable bed, small ...

Worst ever cruise

Have been on 19 cruise with Princess but this the worst ever. Besides the Covid which hubby got, and we do not blame them as a lot of protocols but could do better. The weather, we know beyond their control, missed three ports, but compensated. The real issue was the lack of honest communications. Got to Melbourne finally after three changes to date and change to itinerary. Meant people who had ...

Huge question mark

Just off Splendor. Several observations. All money transactions are in AUD. The most desired shore excursions sold out before we got on. Very few available excursions by non carnival operators. The only docked port is Cairns. As a result the tender ops were time consuming. Carnival did not contract with local fast ferries for getting to shore, just leaving. We should have placed more ...

We saw this was available and matched up with our planned cruise so booked on the spur of the moment. We managed to get the same cabin however we were upgraded to a mini suite at the last minute for this short time. Getting onto the ship was easy in Sydney, the train takes you directly from the airport to Circular Quay where the ship docks. Smooth boarding. COVID safe, masks inside at all times ...
