Review for a Africa Cruise on Nautica

Cruise was ok, 3 of 5. Food, excursions, room service were all good. Interesting itinerary and good things to see at the ports of call. Senegal, Ivory Coast, The Gambia, Togo, all very interesting and done as well as possible to get an understanding of each place. We missed Ghana, which was very disappointing and seems to be a pattern with this cruise line, but we give the benefit of the doubt. ...

The Nautical is a lovely ship with attentive and responsive staff. Our stateroom was well appointed, adequate in size and amenities. The bed was superior and one I’ll long for in the future. Our steward, Riki, was absolutely phenomenal! We enjoyed the lecture series and thought the speakers were very knowledgeable and excellent presenters. In our opinion, the descriptions of the excursions were ...

1. The cabin was very small and the balcony disappointing. 2. Beware of infection, avoid public areas and rest rooms and don't touch anything outside your cabin. Noro virus is apparently very common on board cruises and is extremely infectious BUT we were not warned of this beforehand. A number of us contracted it and the medical center was packed. It results in being isolated to your ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Our Island Princess Cruise was scheduled with an itinerary from Dubai to the Red Sea / Suez Canal to the Greek Islands to Italy. Due to world events, Princess deleted the itinerary and substituted a new segment from Cape Town to Rome through the eastern Mediterranean. This was our 45th wedding anniversary trip and we had targeted the Greek Isles as a bucket list item to check-off. Princess ...

My husband and I chose this Azamara Journey West Africa cruise starting on 4th March 2023 from Cape Town to Walvis Bay Namibia, Luanda Angola, Takoradi Ghana, Ivory Coast, The Gambia, Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Madeira and Lisbon on account of the stops in the African ports. We have sailed a lot with other cruise companies like Holland America, Princess, Celebrity and Norwegian but this was our ...

SUCH A DELIGHT

Review for a Trans-Ocean Cruise on Queen Elizabeth

We just booked this at the very last moment as it was sailing from Cape Town to Southampton and were delighted there was space. This was our first Cunard experience, but I think virtually all other passengers were long-time fans of Cunard. I really cannot find anything to complain about. Check-in was professional and we received our suitcases relatively quickly. The cabin was a decent size, ...

Disaster. Trading on a bygone era and name that no longer exist.

This cruise was a treat for a special occasion. All of Cunard's advertising exudes 'Luxury and Glamour'. We did not know that we had paid all that money to join the last leg of around the world cruise for a 'don't care home'!! Our checkin and boarding was a disaster as we were checked into the room I had booked, but in some one else's name! We subsequently were hawked about a couple of floors ...

We joined Queen Elizabeth on the 20th April in Cape Town. We had travelled on quite a few cruises on Queen Mary, but wow we were blown away by Queen Elizabeth. From the moment we stepped aboard, our holiday began and it was wonderful the entire journey. From the food in the Lido to the Brittannia, we could not have asked for more. The shows were wonderful, with the exception of one show. ...

After a deplorable embarkation in Cape Town, things got better. This was our fourth time on the QMII and we will certainly return, especially for crossings. We love, love, love the interior of the QMII, and were luxuriously at home in many of the public areas, especially the Chart Room and Commodore Club. We met many friendly and charming fellow passengers, got involved in the usual activities, ...
