Too many short cuts

Review for Carnival Freedom to Caribbean - Eastern

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We have cruised with Carnival and Royal Caribbean for the last 18 cruises. We love cruising and consider it to be the best way to take a vacation and have a great time: however, that being said we will try to relay the happenings of what we called the worst cruise we have ever been on. Embarkation was a slow and confusing ordeal; it took the check in Person a good 10 minutes to finally get our ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

We were looking for a semi economic Thanksgiving trip to warm weather. We are driving distance from Galveston and the cruise fair was not a lot more than 5 plane tickets so we ended up taking our first cruise as a family. Overall the trip was okay. The first half day and full day at sea was very rough but we managed okay. At times some of the kids felt slightly nauseas and felt fine when we ...

Relaxing getaway in the Haven

Review for Norwegian Escape to Caribbean - Eastern

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We were looking for a ship with a thermal spa. Wound up with a Haven Spa suite on the Escape. We can't say enough about the elevated level of service. From the avoidance of the long lines to board the ship to the personal butler service that attended to all our needs. Renson was our butler and seemed to always be in eyesight in case anything was needed. He was awesome. The private Haven Lounge ...

This is my 6th cruise. I have previously cruised disney, RCL, and carnival. This is my honest opinion and I added in my personal helpful hints. :) This is my 2nd time on the Dream. It is beautiful ship and so easy to navigate. It was my daughter and I, 18 years old on this Thanksgiving cruise. 8 days with stops in Key West, Freeport, Half Moon Cay, and Nassau. Service: ***** AMAZING, ...

Main Dining Room Food and Stateroom was a Highlight, Embarkation Could Use Some Improvement

Review for Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

6-10 Cruises • Age 30s

Overall, we had an absolutely wonderful cruise on Oasis! There were many, many positives, but first I'll start with just one negative thing that could be improved. Our check-in experience, in a nutshell, was a total nightmare. We waited in line for an hour and a half, about 45 minutes of which was in the hot sun with no shade. Now, we are a couple with no kids in our thirties in pretty good shape ...

A Great Cruise on Grand Older Ship

Review for Celebrity Infinity to Caribbean - Eastern

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

OK, I have read the previous reviews and yes this is a smaller, older ship that needs (and is scheduled for in 2024) refurbishment. As the cruise Director Dave noted "yes, we don't have all the bells and whistles of some of the newer ships, but we work hard to make up for it with excellent service and quality attention to detail". And he was dead on correct. Dave, by the way, was one of the most ...

Not much to complain about

Review for Celebrity Infinity to Caribbean - Eastern

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We're in our 70's and have been on 30 cruises, various lines, but mostly Princess. I figured Celebrity was similar and wanted to check them out since it'd been years since we'd done a Celebrity cruise. Each line has their own advantage. for us, it's the lack of children on both. We love children but not the chaos on a cruise ship. The ship itself was fine but I missed the grand foyer of ...

Nice cruise, but not as good it has been

Review for Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Eastern

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because we were looking for a longer than 7 day cruise before the holidays. We had been on the Getaway 2 other times and were looking forward to this one. The ship was in good shape and the crew were friendly and helpful.Our room steward was the first we have had that never bothered to introduce herself. The room was fine, but the bed had seen better days with depressions on ...

Cruising things to be aware of...

Review for Celebrity Silhouette to Caribbean - Eastern

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

First the ship is lovely, clean the staff is very friendly and very helpful. That part was terrific. I would give the staff 5 stars and the appearance of the ship 5 stars as well. However, things to be aware of... When they give you the internet package beware, the internet is awful even the premium is awful. So go with the mindset that you will not have wifi and you will be great. I was ...

Major Disappointment

Review for Jewel of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We have cruised Royal Caribbean for many years and have sailed sister ships of the Jewel of the Seas. This was the absolute worst cruise we have ever been on. The main dining room food was horrendous and extremely slow. The Windjammer provided much better food. Giovanni’s was anything but a “Specialty”. The ship is very dated and in desperate need of a refresh. Our cabin was 7550. The ...
