The crew is friendly but rather unhelpful, they never clarified any instructions and I was offered a drink maybe once in my several days by the pool. There was no one out taking drink orders and bringing drinks. The ...

Numerous problems, very outdated ship, worst cruise yet

My January, 2018 cruise aboard Sensation was the worst cruise I have had to date. The problems began at embarkation. Even though we had FTTF, we had to wait at the terminal over 2 HOURS to board. I can't imagine how ...

Disappointing, especially on accessibility issues.

My sister and I sailed on the Pride in Dec 2015 to determine if this ship would be right for a 50th wedding anniversary celebration. We were impressed with leaving from Baltimore and with the service on board. ...
