Review for Westerdam to Australia & New Zealand

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 ...

Well it all started rather badly. We were booked in for our 'medical' at Sydney Cruise terminal at 12 noon. We were told NOT to arrive early and being responsible people arrived on time. Only to be greeted by around 3000 other people all trying to get on the ship at the same time. It was chaos! One poor guy was going around with a hand held speaker trying to get people moving, but nobody could ...

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 ...

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 ...

Staff Onboard Great, Communication and Management Lacking

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

This was our first cruise and from the initial line to get onboard which took 4 hours to clear and delayed departure by 3 hours, long lines were a common occurrence on the ship. Coupled with a number of different communications from staff members on the guest services desk compared to what was being said by our cruise director made for some confusing and unpleasant situations. As this was our ...

I’ll make this quick and simple. We just got back from a Alaska cruise and you couldn’t even pay me to step back on this ship or deal with this company. - Beyond outdated ship. You are literally stepping into a time capsule. - Defective sail and sign cards. We had to visit the guest services desk up to 3-4x daily to get new ones. They were aware of these issues and their response was “ The ...

Just an FYI before I start. Family of 4 in our cabin and two of us came home with COVID from the cruise. I chose this cruise since we had one canceled because of Covid. Embarkation was slow. We were told to arrive between 1:30-2. It took about 90 minutes to get on. Very crowded inside and masks are required during that process. I am a Gold member with Carnival and have used them more than ...

In writing this review I am comparing with the other cruise lines I have been with. These include P&O, Princess and Marella formerly known as TUI (Thompson). I have to say I have never been on a bad cruise (14 so far) and I always wonder why people leave such low scores. Yes, I too have had issues on a ship but they have always resolved them with no stress. However, I have witnessed Mr and Mrs ...
