Finally it is cruising time again! And you could feel that vibe all over the ship :-) In advance, we had to deal with a lot of paperwork (PLF for Spain, covid safe ticket, PLF for Italy, embarkation ticket, health quastionnaire, QR-code for covid test before boarding...) It was kind of stressfull. When we arrived at the terminal, we had to show our embarkation ticket at least 5 times at ...

This cruise fitted in with our holiday dates. We fell for the advertised special offers which were so badly advertised we found ourselves ££££££££ out of pocket. We decided to have the speciality dining. On our last NCL cruise this offer lasted the whole week. There was nothing on the advertising that said this was not the case. So imagine our surprise on the third night we were faced with a ...

We booked this cruise with open eyes and performed every piece of diligence possible with the information available, but Norwegian managed to 'con' us, and as we learned onboard many other customers. From the home page online you quickly find the Sail Safe section which clearly states everyone onboard is vaccinated and there are no shore excursion restrictions (correct as of August 2021), but ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We booked this cruise over 2 years ago and was seriously thinking about cancelling it and rebooking for a later date. We didn't due to no availability until 2023. Hind site is 20/20 and we should have canceled. We embarked in Barcelona and disembarked in Venice. This was first ever once in a lifetime cruise. We had high expectations due to great Viking reviews. Viking was being very cautious ...

My 83 year old mother and I chose Viking as her end all get all Cruise. Her grand finale’. We loved the itinerary and added days on the front and back end. Thank God for those days. Once we boarded, early as we had a nice suite, we were told we could not leave the ship unattended via letter in our stateroom. At any port. This was not communicated before hand. This is how it works. Must be ...

We arrived at our assigned time on Friday. Generally, boarding was smooth. However, the MSC website says one thing about testing, but the policy differed when we boarded. While the web site stated that IF we did not have a test within 48 hours of boarding we would be required to have a test at boarding. We went out of our way to get a test within the proscribed time, but were told at boarding ...

Amazing ship but not quite the suite spot

I booked this cruise mid-pandemic on a whim and got a great deal. As a Brit, it really came down to the wire as to whether we would be allowed onboard due to Italy not allowing UK residents to enter, luckily the rules changed on 1st September so we could finally start to get excited about our first cruise in 2 years! Some of the pre-cruise communications were confusing but it’s a constantly ...

Worst excursion ever

First I would like to say the crew on Norwegian epic was wonderful!! Waited a year and a half just to go on my first cruise with Norwegian. We booked excursions for every port. We were so excited ! We enjoyed all our excursions until our last one to Florence and Pisa. That was the worst experience I’ve ever had on an excursion on any cruise. The tour guide was rude, she constantly put down Pisa ...

Amazing Cruise Experience - but The Retreat was Poor

We booked a B2B for my wife's 50th Birthday and our 30th Wedding Anniversary, so splashed out on an S2 Suite in The Retreat. Boarding was very quick, hassle-free and covid-safe. Our Suite was wonderful, from the REAL balcony, the extra cabin space, the window from the bathroom to the separate toilet and large shower enclosure - all excellent. Our Stateroom Attendant (Arleen) was wonderful ...

We thought the drinks package was pretty good (premium) so no complaints about that. The staff in general work very hard, they are very friendly and try to engage as much as possible and they really make you feel welcome. I big shout out to the staff at the Champagne bar who looked after us really well and also the two girls who worked in the Master Tavern so if you happen to go to these ...
