As a seasoned cruiser on many different lines and ships i have just returned from a ten day cruise on NCL SPIRIT. I last used this ship about six years ago on the same tour. At which time we thought it to be an excellent cruise with all conditions and services meeting high standards. Alas what a letdown, the food appeared to be mainly for Asians several types of rice and pasta with meats mainly having the Asian twist. For instant there were a dearth of potatoes, you had chips every meal, baked potatoes once and some “black” potatoes (natural). Cheese was another rare item it appeared lunch time with salads (cut small) but none was available at dinnertime for desert. The majority of the food was tepid so by the time you ate it was cold. Breakfast time there were at least three egg stations catering for all tastes – until you wanted ‘Poached’ eggs when you had to go to a special one, heaven forbid you asked for eggs Benedict this you were charged for and on the last day they did do any –when a chef was asked why he replied it was company policy. A good point was the presence of a coffee machine (good for making tea) in the cabin. A big downside was room service which is normally free (at least to midnight) is charged for at over $7 per request. Our balcony cabin was good although we had a single fold –up fouton which was excellent as a mini settee but it did take up a lot of room. The toilet, washroom and shower were separate the toilet and shower each having a solid door. Opposite was a large wardrobe with plenty of hangers and a couple of dressing gowns also a stack of shelve tucked away at the side. There was a mini bar which had a lock on it I can only assume being a non-drinker, the room maid had the key. The TV was awkward to operate and had the usual channels plus lots of foreign stations leaving us with mainly the news and one film channel. On our first day at sea ‘NORO VRUS’ myself and my wife succumbed and spent the next five days in quarantine. We soon got over the sickness and diarrhoea but were only allowed to eat plain boiled rice and grilled chicken accompanied with beef broth, dry toast and jelly which was cold and had to twiddle our thumbs or sleep. Apparently we were informed some people got fed up and went to the buffet which resulted in the spread being up graded to a serious outbreak.. When we were released on day six we found more ‘agro’ the passengers weren’t allowed to touch anything not handed to them. All cruet sets were removed you had to queue up at a drinks terminal and receive small packets; sauces were doled out in little pots. Queuing for drinks took forever, not because the boys were slow it was a continuous queue whether you wanted a bag of sugar or salt, or 6 glasses of water and four glasses of orange juice. Even here so many people started reaching for things under the barrier that they moved the barrier so far from the food that people were moving around the food in single file. One respite was the dining rooms but even here you had to ask for bread to go with the meal and of course the condiments came in little sachets. And all the time in the buffet and dining rooms when a passenger finished his table was striped and ‘Sanitized’. The excursions seem to go alright, the ship sent out cleaners to sanitize the buses even the ‘hop-on, hop-off bus’ was done. The sanitization of the ship seemed continuous with all rails, door knobs in fact anything which could be touched continually coated with cleaning foam. At every entrance and exit was a waiter with a squirt bottle using the phrase ‘washy washy’ and giving you a dose of anti-bacterial spray. Forgive my rants, please check your travel insurance make sure you’ve got ‘Cruise extra’ otherwise you’ll not be able to claim for incarceration. Finally I think it unlikely for me to use Norwegian Cruise Lines again Read Less

This was a chance to break up a Scottish winter, which it did. The weather was great the destinations were superb. The ship was a complete let down . The embarkation some 10hrs late due to problems with the ship. A promised free meal consisted of I roll and 1 hot drink. We had to spend the next day in port while the ship was fixed causing us to miss one destination. The cabin was clean and comfortable. Dining was a nightmare people scrambling for a table and food that at best was ok. The entertainment patchy and the activities were ok if all you wanted to do was learn the samba. Service was surly or unhelpful most of the time , the exception being the cabin staff. In the main service is poor and I would inform reception that you do not want to be charged a daily service charge . The drinks come with a 15% service charge anyway . The ship offers a shuttle bus at most ports however these are expensive and they will not tell you about any allternatves The port of disembarkation had a taxi and partial bus strike which had been on the news for 3 days MSC said they were unaware of it and basically it wasn't there problem .This resulted in elderly and infirm people being dumped at the port with their baggage in the rain and expected to get on with it. If you think MSC might be for you please THINK AGAIN . Read Less

The disappointment started with the embarkation. The process did not go smoothly at all. I have an injured left leg and should not walk for far lengths. The airport provided a wheelchair and the cruiseline said they would provide a wheelchair as well. When I got there, there was not chair for me. The women say my orthotic boot and gave me Priority Boarding. The issue it, there was absolutely no crown control. There was ONE line for priority boarding which included both handicap and VIP guests. All the guests, not jus the VIP guests packed all of the lines, and people were even pushing me to get on the boat. I left and told them that I can not get in line and I was told that cannot control what their guests do!!! Get ready to be RUN OVER by wild Europeans on the Fantasia. Do not purchase their excursions. They say that people speak English but in reality, the accents are so thick that you will no understand them anyways. Deborah in Rome spoke very poor English and during the whole tour in Rome the microphones did not work at all. We could never hear her. We took 3 excursions- Rome, Pisa, and Monaco. In all 3, you have very limited time to actually STOP and enjoy a site, or take a picture, or enter a small shoppe. They are so concerned with you being back by 3pm, even if the boat doesnt leave until 5:30pm!!! Its better to take a taxi or do a local tour. MSC excursions are not worth it. Also, only ONE local destination offered free shuttle buses into the city center, I think it was La Spezia, but should be all cities. With dinning, they are far too strict. You have to be seated by 7pm and if you are not you can loose your place in dinning and have to eat at the buffet. The buffet is NOT wheelchair friendly. I was only using a wheelchair temporarily, not permanently, but still, no staff offered to help me. The cruise itself is not very wheelchair friendly, which made me feel very bad for people who are actually permanently disabled. For example, there is no wheelchair only elevators. There were actually not enough elevators. There are also no automatic doors throughout the entire ship so you have to rely on other people to help you through the doors. Also, the counters in the dinning room are far too high for anyone in a wheelchair to take a plate, see the food, and serve themselves. My husband had to help me every day, because the staff never assisted. Once, a kind waitor assisted me when he saw me limping with coffee. Definitely the worst part of our trip and what ruined our whole trip was when our cabin was flooded with water when a pipe burst at 2am. I woke up to water in our room in the middle of the night and had a panic attack. They later told us that we were LUCKY they had an extra room available for us to sleep in that night. They even wanted us to go back to the soiled room the next day. Our items were soiled with dirty pipe water and many of our items were not cleaned for when we were scheduled to disembark 2 days later. They refused to return our money for the price of our cabin for those 2 nights and refused to provide any compensation for our shoes or even let me fill our a complaint form. We have been trying to contact customer service for the pipe even specifcially but no one has returned our contacts. All in all, this cruise line is NOT wheelchair friendly, has no automatic doors or dinning assitance, and did not own up to their responsiblity for our cabin and items. Read Less

The Carnival organization should be recognized for its ability to take a brand new ship and reduce it to a floating tribute to poor food, bad service and mediocre entertainment. The food was cheap, overcooked and boring. The only possible exception was breakfast where Carnival staff had nothing to do with boxed cereal, yogurt and some fruits. Toast was dry and cold. Eggs were immersed in oil. Lunch and dinner offerings were either overcooked or smothering in sauces to deguise the lack of taste. The Main Dining Room wasn't much better. Some items such as the Maine lobster tails were inedible. Other offering were old and tired and have been around for years. A new ship should have a new menu. I am left with impression that the Carnival strategy was to make the Lido and Main Dining Room food so bad that it would force guests to eat at the Speciality Restaurants to get a decent meal I would lke somebody to explain to me: to whom Carnival pay VAT in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea? It appears to be another grab on their part. Never before on a cruise ship have I ever experienced such a high degree of rude and indifferent staff. There was very little willingness to offer assistance or answer the simplest of questions. Carnival needs to reimagine loyalty. There was a time when Carnival hosted a reception for past guests with the Captain and officers present. Now it is a bottle of water and drink voucher with conditions; the last of the cruise, after 5pm and not to exceed $9.00. Loyalty shouldn't come with strings attached. Carnival expects my loyalty unconditionally, it should work both ways. Bon voyage Carnival. Never again. Read Less

We chose this cruise because it was included in our Wyndham timeshare package. Boarding the ship started one hour late, which created a line of passengers snaking for 3 blocks in the searing sun with no bathrooms. During the check-in process no one could explain our "priority embarkation / disembarkation" benefit as listed on our ticket. Upon arriving on the boat, our VIP reservation was not recognized because we had an internal cabin. After a long wait with the concierge and showing VIP on our tickets, they reluctantly gave us our strawberries, wine, VIP recognition. We wanted to enjoy the various hot tub spas available on deck 15, but to our dismay they were all quite cold with cold bubbles. We also quickly learned that the cruise was catered to 2 groups: a younger crowd only on board to drink and gamble, and an older crowd on an extended vacation from Florida to Europe. The shore excursions were an absolute fiasco. Gathering for disembarkation was completely disorganized, not ADA compliant, 100% of the time late to disembark. One tour was scheduled to leave at 0800, and we did not leave the ship until 1030. This late departure was caused by the crew not launching enough ferry boats to shore. The shore excursion descriptions did not mention the lack of wheelchair access, disabled access, and walking over uneven or severely inclined terrain. There were several excursions, namely Pompeii and Rome where the elderly on the tour were physically unable to complete the tour. One every tour, there were at least 2 patrons that needed significant assistance getting into the bus. One one tour, an elderly lady fell out of the buss because she could not step safely from the last step to the pavement, leaving the bus. At every turn, it seemed like the crew had no idea what they were doing. There were voices of panic on the walkie talkies almost constantly. The musical Priscilla of the Desert, was not appropriate for the audience on the cruise. About 30 minutes into the performance, about 2/3 of the crowd walked out. If I would have known that it was a gay pride performance, I would have never attended. The constant announcements morning and night from both the captain and the "Cruise Director" were intrusive and exceedingly loud. They also offered not useful information during their announcements. The elevator wait time was, on average, 25 minutes throughout the cruise (yes, I timed it; I'm an industrial engineer). Wait times were even worse on days where there was disembarkation. Many times you had to get on an elevator going the wrong direction just to get to the desired deck eventually. "Haven" members abused the "priority" service on the elevators, reducing capacity through poor utilization. Contributing to the capacity issue was the fact that only 2 of 4 elevators showed movement at any given time. The floor and movement of the elevators were displayed atop of each elevator door.

Having previously enjoyed 3 cruises with NCL (Star, Epic,Spirit) we decided to take a 2nd cruise on NCL Spirit. From start to finish we found it to be an absolute nightmare, and couldn't wait to get home. The cruise did not get off to a good start, when passengers were told on embarkation in Barcelona, that the itinerary had been changed, and 3 major ports were substituted for far less attractive ones. We were told that this was because of the weather, but this sort of thing seems to be going on a lot with cruise ships lately. We were not too bothered, because we had been to the missed ports on several occasions, however, we would certainly not have booked this cruise if the itinerary was the one we ended up with. Having been on many cruises as a passenger on both large and small ships, and having been a ships officer for 15 years, I can count on one hand how many ports have been cancelled at the last minute. Once on board, it was time for a drink. Next shock coming up. We discovered that even though we had an Ultimate Beverage Package, we would still be charged 10% Spanish VAT. This is something that has never happened before, even on the same ship, in similar waters this time last year. That evening, we went to one of the lounges for a drink before dinner, only to be told that the same drink that we had last year, was not on the package as it was now over $15. There were many other things that were different, but for us, the major gripe was the fact that we had hammering and drilling noise in our stateroom EVERY DAY OF THE CRUISE, when we wanted to have a rest either after breakfast or lunch. It appeared that there was nothing that could be done, because the work being carried out on the open deck above was urgent. We were finally offered another stateroom 2 days before the end of the cruise, but by this time we could not be bothered. We feel that this is not the way to treat repeat guests, and we are now wondering if we should give NCL another chance or think again. Read Less

We booked principaly to see the Cirque du soleil performance and have been on many MSC cruises before. This ship is ghastly in side and out. The décor in the balcony cabin was dark and depressing the view being partially obscured by a life boat which they failed to mention when booking. I think they got TK Max or the Range to do the furnishings.The ship was full of all nationalitys the result of which was over crowding at every event and facility. The buffet was akin to being in a lunatic asylum- pushing ,shouting, no manners , people making pigs of themselves etc. Security on and off the ship was shambolic ,queing not enough staff,rude and ill mannered. We had a meal in the Cirque du soleil - the chaos had to be seen to be believed in the dinner serving. All with rip off prices and lack lustre service. I could go on for ages with what was wrong with this ship but hey ho they never listen any way If this is the future of cruising then count me out! Read Less

We have been cruising for over 35 years, and never have we had a bad cruise, till now. We have cruised with Costa before on many of their ships, so we were under no illusion it would be noisy, particularly as it was a large ship, however, it was only a 7 nighter and it was going were we wanted it to, so we thought we'd make the most of it. Our first impression of the ship was very favourable, it was a beautiful high tech ship. The cabins were very comfortable and the staff were very good and tried to please where they could. The shows too were a very good standard, and that was were the pluses ended. I'll list the negatives which sadly far outweighed the pluses: 1. There was very little seating around public areas for such a large number of people. 2. No cultural activities, not even on sea days. 3. The food in the restaurants was mediocre with very little choice in the buffet and the quality was not brilliant. 4. The wine packages were very restrictive and the selection of wines on offer on these packages were not of good quality. 5. Worst of all was the hygiene, or lack of. This was evident at the entrance to restaurants as the sanitising gel was hardly used. Even if you did use it as we did, it was rendered null and void by the waiters who handed you a tablet to sign for the drinks. After a few days, my wife and I ended up in the hospital with food poisoning, and by the looks of it, many people were affected too as the hospital was very busy. Some passengers on our table were also sick. We have a policy of never eating or drinking outside the ships precisely to avoid getting sick and spoiling our holiday, but this time, after 35 years of cruising, we got sick with food on board. Never, never again will we go on one of these cruises again, even if they were to be given to us free. Read Less

This cruise ship was clean and tidy but the cruise was a disaster hoping to have a lovely Xmas cruise we were very very disappointed .The food was disgusting most of the time it was served after a long wait more often than not it was COLD and undercooked . The service was pathetic very slow sometimes waiting for up to 45 minutes between courses . The cabin was good and always clean and tidy . The cabin steward was always pleasant and helpful . Entertainment was good and a good choice of entertainment . Reception ok staff helpful and efficient . We missed a couple of ports due to adverse weather conditions and were given a refund of €50 each but were not informed that we had to spend it on board till we were disembarking so lost that . After disembarking we discovered our suitcase had been damaged I would only travel again on MSC when HELL FREEZES OVER . I strongly advise you not to travel with this company . Read Less

My wife and I decided yo take this cruise to be able to see the places your ship would be docking in. The service on board was excellent. The staff, especially the waiters and room attendants were very friendly and helpful. There were enough activities on board and on shore to keep us entertained and occupied throughout the trip. Excellent live music to listen to and to dance to. As a senior retired citizen, my one regret though is not being able to try out the other fine dining restaurants on board because of the substantial additional costs it will entail to try them all out. Perhaps a way could be worked out in your future trips to make this a part of the overall dining experience of your passengers. I enjoyed the live performance shows in the theater, the indoor and outdoor movies and the leisurely lounging and walking on deck, These all adds up to a happy and memorable experience for us.

We arrived in Bacelone 2 days before saling, and it was great. We had a great time in Barcelone. The ship was great and the cabine also. We had dinner every night on the fift floor (sorry I can't remember the name) the staff in this dinning room was wonderful. We did not entertain or do any of the activities. the service was very good but the staff on the 11 floor, were not smiling at all, this was pain full for me. They had no communication at all except to ask us if we wanted more coffee but no smile. Ports and excusions was wonderfull. We visited very nice places. I was traveling with my daughter, her boyfriend and the mother of her boyfriend.They did everything to please us since it was our first time in Europe, Italy is very nice to visit and I would not hesitate to do this cruse again.

I was offered onboard credit for being a veteran. The security was not handled properly and my wife's bag was lifted. It was not returned until we had occured over a thousand dollars is bills from the ship medical staff and 16 day from departure. Several request were made to look for the bag at customer service, but after being told the bag was aboard I signed for it. The ship's officer said it had been on board since embarkcation. When I asked that they recind the charges I met the rude Mr Steven. When I contacted Princess after the cruise, I got the 'WE DON'T CARE ATTITUDE!'' Embarkation was held up for hours in Valpariso. Going ashore was held up for three hours in Rio. Food on board had the frozen portion control taste, not at all what I have previously experinced on other cruises. This lenthly cruise was definatly marketed for older people , due to the fact that only retired persons could be away for a longer time. to matters even worse I was server tainted food and had symptoms of food posioning for a week. THen the ships medical service charged me 365 dollars for a single visit. When I told the doctor that the fumes from the midship elevator shaft made my eyes water and my throat to constrict, that was nothing and I had a cold. They chargred me 26 dollars for a flu test that I did not have any flu like symptoms for. I will not be traveling with Princess again! Read Less

We chose Regents because I wanted to see Egypt and we felt it may be dangerous to fly in. The ship was newly refurbished and so was the staff. They never let on in booking. I guess cause most cruise sites warn against a newly refurbished ship and they are right. Staff had no clue and we were the training program and a costly one at that. Food and service in Compass Rose poor. Tour guides poor to awful. Fumes from the rugs and refurbishment left me woyh a 21 day sinus problem for the entire cruise. I know cause off the ship it was fine back on it was back and others seemed to be experiencing the same. Shows, not great. Same guy with his puppets most of the time. Pre cruise hotel pretty bad. DisEmbarkation a disaster--- Told to take a taxi if I did not like the transfer offered and I could bring my luggage to the elevator myself. This could have been an amazing cruise given the ports but, it fell very short of basic expectations. Read Less

We booked three back to back cruises which totaled 29 days. We found the food inedible on the Eurodam. The food was so bad, I could not eat it. I lost 14 pounds on the cruise, which is probably the only good thing that happened. Meats, and fish did not taste fresh, and they were always overcooked. Vegetables were often sparingly served, and the sauces, and combinations that the kitchen came up with were terrible. There was construction going on while we were cruising. HAL was reconfiguring part of deck 3, and the smells and fumes that we encountered were awful. One early morning, we both woke up to strong smells of paint, or cleaning fluid in the room. We ended up on our deck at 5AM. We think that it was the fumes that caused an allergic reaction which I had for the entire remainder of the cruise. I had a superficial cough, lost my hearing, and had pus running out of my eyes. I went to the medical center, and the first doctor I talked to told me it looked like an allergic reaction. He later changed his mind and suggested that I should be isolated, and given antibiotics since I might be infectious. Nothing he gave me helped, but I was allowed to leave our stateroom after a day, since they determined that I was not dangerous to other passengers. After several days, I went back to the medical center, telling them I still had the same problems. Once again, I was isolate, and given more antibiotics. I was isolated for 24 hours, then released. I still had all the symptoms, and I was pretty miserable, but I did not return to the medical center. We spent over $600 in the medical center, and still felt awful. It was a terrible trip across the Atlantic. I tried to spend most of my time on the top deck where it is open. I did not start to feel better until several hours after leaving the ship. Since, I could not hear, I cannot comment on the entertainment, or lectures. My husband did attend several lectures, and visited the theatre more than once, and told me that I had not missed much. The service was not polished. Many of the attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing. We had to hang onto our drinks, or they would disappear. The servers did not ask if we were finished before removing glassware, and dishes. There were fewer servers, and cabin stewards on this cruise than what we experienced with Celebrity or Princess. The excursions were poorly scheduled, and nobody was on hand to help you find your group, or bus. I could go on, and on. We thought we were taking a cruise on a Premium Line, but that is not what we experienced. Read Less

DISAPPOINTING (1) msc up graded our cabin (or so they claimed) and relocated us directly under the uper dance deck ..... imagine untill 2 am in the morning thump - thump - thump over your head. (2) 80% of the pasengers on the cruise were non english speaking people. ok if you speak italian or spanish but no good for english speaking pasengers. (3) dining room - in their wisdom seated us with a chinese family who spoke little or no english.. . . . . . . . el a cart menue was lousy. (4) auditorium - the standard of entertainment was disappointing. same faces every night on the stage . . .. . . . different dance routines. (5) hotel reception- proved difficult to deal with and at one stage we actually went " face to face" with them, and asked for a full refund. on that particular day (2nd day of cruise) we would have been happy to disembark and make our own back to barcelona. (6) bar cocktail drinks were dreadfull. in the end we gave up ordering them and just purchased simple drinks such as gin and tonic. Cruise is not recommended for english speaking passengers. . . .

This I hope will warn people to be very careful when choosing The Norwegian Epic for a holiday break. One in three people are dissatisfied with this ship. Some leave the epic early for several reasons. We would have left early too, had it not been that we were with other people. My observations ---- a ship with 4000 people on board, needs systems, schedules, management and staff trained to an exceptional standard to provide a quality service, This quality service was sadly lacking on this ship. I complained on ship to 4 management staff, I have their NCL business cards, eventually getting a courtesy meal and a bottle of wine., not satisfactory for a couple who had paid £2500 for a 10 day enjoyable cruise. Some of the dining room waitresses and waiters did not seem to care. Slow service. Breakfast in morning poor, food cold. They wine waiter did not even bother to get wine that was being served next door in lobby bar. The buffet upstairs, looked more like cattle mart, with guests just pushing and shoving. Looking for tables up there was like looking for a needle in a haystack. Quality of food was adequate, but some overlooked, when waitress was told, she made comment " This is not fine dining , you know !. Going to a special restaurant, is like Hiring a Taxi and walking after it. I don't do those things. Queing up to get into restaurants took 20 mins. Not enough lounge seating for a nice drink, but plenty of casino seating. Ship departing port at 3.30 pm does not give u a full day at port. Delivery of bags to room on embarkation, to slow. When you go to locate them, it's hassle. A pain in the bum. We had early flight out of Barcelona, We carried our cases off ourselves, down 6 flights of stairs. I could go on and on. On my return, I contacted NCL Customer service in Southampton, about our experience. The Customer care manager, (I have her name) said I would have to wait 28 days for a response. I kicked of again, eventually got one. She said the meal and bottle of wine was adequate compensation. So much for NCL. This cruise was very poor value for £2500 for 2 people. Cruisers beware. Would never use NCL again only 3rd rate. Going of my experience, better smaller ships out there for similar sort of money. Read Less

We cruised on this ship in December 2015. The ship itself was very clean and well maintained if somewhat flamboyant in the decor, still everyone's taste is different. However if you are English speaking beware. The announcements on board were given in 4 languages, English being one of them, but so heavily accented that we could not understand them. The staff all seemed to struggle with English so getting anything sorted out was a problem. Some of the information printed in the daily paper delivered to your cabin was incorrect resulting in us being in the wrong place at the wrong time. We didn't book any excursions so we can't comment on them but any helpful information about ports of call such as local bus services, street maps or places of interest was sadly lacking. If you want tea or coffee mid-day you would be out of luck as the machines were switched off, although of course you could pay at the bar. We are both vegetarian but we found some dishes labelled vegetarian contained meat. A daily charge of 9 euros per person is compulsory. You may agree with this but we preferred the money to go to the staff that helped us, i.e. our cabin cleaner and waiter at dinner. Additionally all drinks carry an additional 15% service charge, that is on top of the 9 euros per day. You even had to pay for water at meal times. We found the staff very unfriendly, not helped by the lack of English being spoke. So, we would not book with Costa again. We contrasted this cruise with one we took last year on the Norwegian Spirit which was amazing and so much better than our Costa experience. Read Less

We have been on about 5 cruises before this one and i can honestly say that this was WORSE then any other. Food was absolutely disgusting (when you could get it) the ship itself is beautiful but the organisation on board is none existent breakfast is basic, lunch is basic "both the same by the way", evening meal you could have fitted all 4 courses on a small side plate. we paid 28 euros each to eat in one of the speciality restaurants absolute waste of money the food is just as crap as the rest of the ship we had prawns as part of the first course they were RAW we complained but it was a waste of time just offered us a glass of the cheapest champagne which was undrinkable. Drinks were expensive every thing you buy has 15% added on, they don't charge a "service" charge which is not compulsory they now charge you 8.5 euros per person per day and call it a hotel charge which they can make compulsory. Entertainment after the first night was mind numbingly boring same crap over and over. It appears Costa cruises is mainly for Italians, germans and basically oneone apart from the English. I must in conclusion say that the waitresses/waiters were brilliant Please take notice if you want a decent cruise holiday then DO NOT GO ON COSTA its fairly cheap but you DON'T get value. Read Less

This was our first cruise and everyone we spoke to before we went said how great cruising is with RC. So our expectations were probably too high. In general we enjoyed the cruise but we were very disappointed with many aspects. First the good points: staff excellent, cabin was good size, cleanliness on board was excellent. Now the bad: Dress code in the evenings not enforced. Even on Formal nights with some people in Tux and bow ties (including me) some were still allowed in the main Aquarius restaurant with skanky t-shirts and shorts and baseball caps (my pet hate in a restaurant), and in the bars some men in sleeveless t-shirts, shorts and flip flops. The main dining room had limited opening times for breakfast and lunch closing at 8:30am breakfast times some days and the latest 9am on others so most days we were forced to eat in the Windjammer cafe. The food for evening meal in the Aquarius was terrible. Actually inedible on most nights. We ended up eating our evening meals in the Windjammer where the help yourself buffet style food was about average all inclusive hotel quality. We did not go on a cruise to eat buffet style but ended up doing this. The pool area was very noisy most of the day with loud music and pathetic childish games going on (equivalent to Butlins of 30 years ago). So much so we stopped going to the pool area. The constant sales pitches by staff trying to get you to part with your money (to get you to buy meals at the speciality restaurants, photos etc) was worse than double glazing salesman. The price of drinks were extortionate a small glass of wine for $9 or $14 (and the glass only half full at that) we bought the Premium drinks package to get over this (but this did not include coffee at the coffee shop). The supposedly Broadway class shows we were really looking forward too turned out to be a singer supported by the on board band. Two shows with dancers were very good all the rest were just second rate singers. We have seen far superior shows in hotels. Our account was charged several times for drinks etc that were included in our drinks package so I had to visit customer services three times to get this sorted. Like I said at the beginning we were probably expecting too much and will stick with good quality hotels in future cruising is not for us. We just thought it was a complete rip off. Read Less

Had a lovely stay in Barcelona. Boarding the ship was quite easy - staff very friendly and helpful. Before you board the ship there is a shop where you can buy alcohol. We thought it would be nice to have a couple of bottles of wine in our room. There was nothing to say this was not allowed and we were obviously about to board. We were treated like criminals for daring to bring two bottles of wine and a bottle of sangria on board. Not a good start. The food was not very nice. We actually paid to go to two of the restaurants on board. While eating a meal in the Windjammer you are pestered by the staff one after the other. Not their fault - obviously they are told to do it. Every mouthful of food someone is there asking you how you are where you are going bla bla bla. There is nothing to do much in the evenings except to spend money KACHING. Drinks very expensive. Shops expensive. Not very subtle extortion every move you make Kaching. When you get off the ship if you haven't paid for trips through them you are treated like a second class citizen. There is no information - although its easy and a lot cheaper to find your own way around once you get off. Photographers follow you everywhere clicking away even when you are eating. I could go on but won't bore you any more. Read Less

I want my old Carnival back, I just got off of the Sunshine on it's transatlantic 16 night cruise. In one word HORRIBLE, and I will detail most of the things that went wrong. You can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear, this kept coming to me over and over during the cruise. I am a platinum member and should be a diamond since I never got credit for the cruises I took on the Marti Gras, and Carnivale in the 1070's and 1980's at least 2x a year so I have more than the requirements for this grade. The service on this 16 year old refurbished cruise ship was not very helpful towards the passengers, every answer I got was "I sorry" but nothing was done to correct anything I told them aboard ship. From my stateroom 3132 not being cleaned for 5 days, re: vacuumed, mopped floor in bathroom, trash can loaded with trash from the previous cruise. The marketplace, all the stations full of food shades down and staff leaning against the wall waiting until 7:30 while over 100 guests were waiting for breakfast at 6:30. The staff didn't know what they were serving, I was told over and over again the wrong description of the food at their station. The coffee, and Ice machines constantly broken, I needed to go to the other side of the ship to get coffee or ice, many times. The tiles on deck 3 are cracked and popping up, nothing is being done to repair them. No place to read a book like in the windows on promenade deck or anywhere else, EXCEPT bars where it isn't like being on a cruise or the back of the buffet, that has always been open and I could read my books and see the sea, but now it is enclosed and the Havana bar is there. The entertainment was not what I (and I'm sure many others) liked, since the show room was cut about 3/4 of the seating I guess reviews Vegas type can't be presented. In the dinning room, when checking in for a table and I would ask for a large table or booth, the automatic response was no not available, but when Elizabeth came over she said put them at a table, and it was what we wanted. The food is dangerous, all of the hot food was either luke warm or cold, the cold food like Caesar salad was served in warm bowls, I was served duck pot stickers that were very cold, I asked the Maitre d for a kitchen thermometer so I could see the exact temperature, he wouldn't get me one, I think his name was Navash served immediately after the pot stickers were cold kebab, it was ludicrous, this happened all through the cruise, also a little tip, don't let the hot food stay at the waiters station for 30 minutes or more and expect it to be hot, also each night the waiters would give the wrong guest the wrong dish, every night. The physical ship is in need for a refurbishment, metal ceiling tile in marketplace fell down, didn't hit someone but I guess you were lucky, in handicapped mens room on deck 14 my roommate had a metal tile fall on his head, (this was documented as was the visit to the medical office. There are pods broken on the jumbotron, which was not being used well , most of the time the same still pictures flashing with a scroll on the bottom reminding us that towels will be taken off of lounges in 40 min no saving lounges, oh btw this was never done, I also asked at the customer service desk if there were the traditional news reports that I always got on board, she said no, just tune to channel 33 cnn, well no cnn or any other news source. I was sitting in the marketplace having lunch and noticed a sign CHOCOLATE EXTRAVAGANZA and saw the chocolate fountain, there was no notice in the ships news nor any announcement over the loud speaker, when I asked the customer service desk I was told that they didn't know it was that day either. The pass passenger cocktail party at 1:30 in the afternoon was ridiculous. Each night that we needed to change our clocks back one hour, the ships clocks were the wrong time, we the customer service desk was asked to change the ships clock I was told they can't it's controlled by the bridge and the bridge couldn't do it, so much miss information. The floors in the marketplace were always slippery, nothing done to make them safe. My room key didn't work a number of times, had to get new ones at least 4 times also had nothing in my pockets to demagnetize them. Also when I boarded the ship, security put my sign and sail card in the machine that took my picture and pinged, when i tried to get off in Malaga the sign and sail card didn't work, so they had to take my picture again, boarding the ship later that day the same thing no picture etc. At the customer service desk I had to repeat my requests 3 or 4 times to that many people, it got very old and I was getting very frustrated. At the Tasting station no attention to the passenger the two crew would just stand and talk and ignored me, also there was a tasting for a BBQ place that didn't exist on the Sunshine? I didn't know lunch was served in the ocean place as with most things I need to walk past at the right time to find out about these places. I have always been an advocate for Carnival bragging about how great it was, and that is the operative word WAS, now I am sorry to say, it ranks in last place in the cruising industry, I just that is why Mickey Arison resigned as cob, and I'm sure that Ted Arison, whom I cruised with a number of times, is spinning in his grave. I will end this with the only words I can say that expresses my negative feelings about Carnival: "I'M SORRY" Read Less

This cruise was a gift from my husband for my 60th birthday. I had to work 18 months to be able to accumulate enough vacation time to go on this trip. Our first problem was with Air France, that lost our bags when we arrived in Barcelona. After our arrival on the ship, we were told by Jan not to worry about our bags, that Carnival would be responsible for finding out bags. Three days later our bags arrived, so first of all I want to thank Jan for all of his attention and help on this matter. We paid for 12 days of cruising, 9 at ports and 3 "fun days" at the sea. At the end we had 5 days at ports and 7 "fun days" at sea. Fun day at the sea means 4,000 people in the ship spending money in beverage, Casino, store... good deal for Carnival, not for us. The sheets and ice buckets were never changed voluntarily. You had to ask for this to be done for anyone to come to your room to do it. During our cruise departure from Barcelona, all of the announcements were made only in Spanish and Russian, even though the ship was leaving from a spanish-speaking country and the ship is registered in Panama. A lot of the spanish-speaking cruisers were very upset because they could not understand any of the announcements. When the two days in Venice were cancelled, everyone on the ship was outraged, and even though Captain Stefano Battinelli should have made an appearance to speak to the public, he only sent out his assistants to do the explaining. The compensation for the days lost at sea was only removal of the port charges from everyone's account, which is nothing compared to the amount people spent on the trip. If it was true that we could not dock at specific ports due to inclement weather, we should have been offered alternate ports to dock at. A lot of the entertainment on the ship was completely useless. The water slides and pools were all very nice, but who is going to go swimming in Europe in October. Carnival and its Captain Stefano Battinelli ruined the vacation of almost 4000 passengers. Read Less

BED BUGS & LOUSY FOOD FOR OUR 50TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY. TERRIBLE REVIEW for Royal Caribbean's "Voyager of the Sea" - Sailed October 30, 2011 on a 13 night cruise Barcelona to New Orleans. This was our 35th cruise! We were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary. This was our 7th cruise on Royal Caribbean. After this cruise, we have decided not to sail on any Royal Caribbean's cruise ships in the future. Below is our review to explain our comments. As per Cruise Critic's Guidelines, I will try and structure my review into categories. BACKGROUND INFORMATION As mentioned, we have cruised 35 times including Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Celebrity, Holland American, NCL, Princess and others. We are in our early 70's residing in Clearwater FL; we have cruised the Caribbean, Alaska, South America, Mexican Rivera, Gulf of Mexico, Europe and about ten transatlantic crossings. EMBARKATION: In Barcelona - after waiting 45 minutes for a wheel chair, they whisked my wife away with out me and I had the paper work. About ten minutes later they showed up with another wheel chair and we eventually located my wife and then we were processed promptly. STATEROOM We were located on Deck 9, Balcony cabin #9622 - Cost for this Balcony Cabin $2,892.68 booked on December 20th 2010. We had called Royal Caribbean relative to my recent total knee replacement and were given assurance that it would be no problem to have two gel packs put in the Medical freezer daily and they would be available as we would need them as a nurse is available 24/7. After getting settled in the cabin we asked the lady room steward to please take the two gel packs to the freezer, she was quite rude in stating that this could not be done. After I explained that this was already approved by Royal Caribbean and we were advised to give the gel packs to the room steward and that if she couldn't handle it to please send the Hotel manager to our cabin. All of a sudden she was able to take the gel packs to the freezer. Since it would be 24 hours until the gel packs would be cold enough I requested a large bucket of ice so I could treat my knee using plastic sealed bags, after two hours and three follow-up phone calls with the room steward she brought the large bucket of ice and I treated my knee. We went to late seating at 8:30pm and were just seated when my knee started to bother me so I asked my wife to go back to our cabin on the 9th deck and contact the room steward for additional ice, my wife went back to the 9th deck and spoke directly to the room steward asking for an additional large bucket of ice and she said she would take care of it right away. After dinner we went back to the cabin to ice my knee and there was no ice. We called room service and they brought up a large bucket of ice. In the morning my wife addressed the room steward who was nasty in an aggressive manner, she threw up her hands in the air and said, "I must have forgot, SO"! With this attitude we went to the purser's office and discussed this problem we were having with the room steward; apparently management addressed this problem right away as we had no further issues with the room steward on the remainder of the cruise. On about the third day of the cruise my back was aching in the morning, so I pulled the bottom sheet back and found that two mattress pads had been folded over and then a third mattress pad had been put over the top of the other two mattress pads and the sheet over the mattress pad. At the same time my wife said look at my arms, I have five bites on one arm and three bites on the other arm. We went to the purser office and they said they would look into it and advise us of the results. A service man came and started to poke around by the bed head board and we left the cabin. About three hours later we came back to the cabin, new MATTRESSES were now on the bed. No one from the purser's offices ever called to say what they found; but obviously, it was BED BUGS. A couple of days later we came back to the cabin while the lady room steward was in the bathroom cleaning and we found two Royal Caribbean personnel in some type of dress uniforms in the cabin, one setting on the bed and one standing. Surprised one said, "we are not working just entertaining the room steward." We left and went to the purser office and reported the incident, but were surprised as they didn't seem to care as this appeared as common place; but it was not common place to us as no one should be in our cabin other than when it was being serviced. We never received any response from the purser's office. The other aspects of the cabin worth mentioning is the balcony, the carpet was wore out and filthy. Rusty metal was showing. The glass by the rail was never washed once during the cruise. The teak rail was raw wood, no varnish. There were NO amenities in the bathroom, no hand lotion, body lotion, shampoo, or shower cap, just one bar of soap. With the new mattress, the bed was now comfortable; however, since the DUST mites were stirred up and with the bite problem and the mattress problem, I ended up in the Doctor's office on the ship with a bacterial infection and the doctor visit and medicine cost me $156.40. SHIP INFO - The Teak Railing all over the ship was raw wood no varnish. Many deck chairs had missing straps. The ship definitely is in need of much maintenance as much wear is noted We were surprised at the declining condition of a Royal Caribbean ship. Most every day one or more elevators were out of service which was a big problem at meal times. DINING This was absolutely the worst dining experience we have had in 35 cruises; both in the Windjammer Buffet and Main dining room, 2nd seating. On the first morning I went to Deck 11 Windjammer Buffet about 7:15am and a young man approached me and asked me if I would like a glass of Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice. I replied, "that sounds interesting" and he said, "it will be $3.95, and I told him "no thanks." On Deck 11 the food was Luke warm at best. The buffet, any casserole type dish, corn beef hash, gravy or soup was loaded with SALT. The omelet maker needs to be taught how to make an omelet, it is not made by putting all of the ingredients into the pan at the same time and poking at it, the omelet came out hard and dry and not editable. I tried three times and each one was worst than the prior one, Hamburgers were Luke warm at best. Same old pastries every morning they even looked tired. The grits, and oat meal were good and they were hot. French toast sometimes was so old it was hard, and of course we did not eat it. Tables on Deck 11 were slow to be cleaned on many occasions indicating a shortage of good help. While signs are placed on the tables on Deck 11 about card playing, reading books etc. these rules are not enforced and a shortage of tables existed during the busy eating times. Once again showing lack of management involvement. Main Dining Room, when I booked the cruise in December 2010, I was placed on a waiting list for late seating; Who do they think they were kidding, the reality was that late seating was only 50% full at best with a lot of empty tables every night of the cruise. The first three nights my wife and I sat alone at a table for eight; then we were able to join another table set for eight on the far side of the dining room that had four people seated. The following is our experience in the Main Dining Room - 1st night Prime Rib medium rare - EXCELLENT - 2nd night Pork very tough - 3rd night Lamb Chops - POOR - next night nothing appealed on the menu so I just ate a Caesar Salad - Fish EXCELLENT - Lobster Tail and Prime Rib - EXCELLENT - Chicken Marsala TERRIBLE EXCUSE for Chicken Marsala baked breaded chicken breast with some poor type of Marsala sauce on top of the chicken - Lamb SHANKS absolutely terrible, they may Have been good at the 6:00pm seating but after three more hours on a steam table they were not fit to eat - Baked Chicken - TERRIBLE raw and bloody on the inside - Thai Shrimp - VERY POOR - To top it off on the final formal night Surf & Turf, Meat was tough and poor quality so tough my bridge actually broke and two teeth were implanted in the meat. NO MELTED BUTTER WAS SERVED, INSTEAD THEY SERVED WHAT APPEARED TO BE HOLLANDAISE SAUCE, WE USED THE BUTTER ON THE TABLE for the surf. Only white rolls were offered, we can't eat white rolls so we asked for dark rolls such as rye, pumpernickel, whole wheat or multigrain. A tiny bite size roll was offered. After numerous requests finally a rye roll was available. One night the assistant waiter said he had to go up to the 11th deck to get us dark rolls. It got rather boring eating the same roll every night, just one more incident of poor management at the top. Deserts for the most part through out the cruise were not interesting and I choose Yogurt most evenings. The coffee in the Main dining room 2nd seating was absolutely the worst I have ever tasted on a cruise, never a freshly brewed cup of coffee. To celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary a milestone on Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Sea management provided a chocolate mouse the size of a cupcake for six patrons to share and of course a few waiters singing. Once again, Royal Caribbean management showed No Class. The best coffee on the ship was in the little cafe' open 24 hours on deck #5. ACTIVITIES Both Libraries almost a total disgrace, as many shelves were completely empty; there were very few books available. Gym on Deck 11 and the Card Room on Deck 14 were very nice. SERVICE With the exception of our room steward, service over all around the ship was surprisingly pleasant with a few exceptions; on last formal night the assist' waiter spilled hot tea water on my wife, and said "you are too close" then ignored it and left the table offering no help to my wife; he is very poor in his duties and should not be in the main dining room. The waiter was very defensive when he was told of the poor quality of the dish and kept saying over and over that everyone liked it at the early seating. I am sure that was possible when the food was freshly cooked but after 3 additional hours any food on a steam table loses its appeal and taste. ENTERTAINMENT Glen Smith was excellent. Broadway singers and dancers were very low quality and the singer's voices were not clear, we could not understand the words no matter where we sat. Balance of entertainment was mediocre to poor. PORT & SHORE EXCURSIONS Been to all the ports before except Tenerife in the Canary Islands and we enjoyed that port on our own as there was no excursions available. DISEMBARKATION Disembarkation in New Orleans ran late- was poorly organized, additionally they said eight (8) wheel chairs were broken causing the delay to 11:30 am for disembarkation. SUMMARY & SUGGESTION This was absolutely the worst cruise we have been on in 35 cruises. To us Senior Management is not running this ship as it is absent in so many details; no cabin should ever be given to a guest in the poor condition with bed bugs that we experienced. The late seating dining room should be closed if this is the best food that can be presented. I attribute this whole terrible experience to uninvolved senior management in the daily management of the ship; with management focusing on how they can wring another dollar out of the guest; instead of how can the guest be better served. I would suggest senior management from Corporate sail on this ship in disguise and see what is really going on. We rate this cruise one star only because the ship's engines did not fail. We appreciated the Catholic Priest on board who said Mass every day, we would recommend that Royal Caribbean make available room for a Catholic priest on all cruises of seven (7) days or more.
