We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We wanted to go from Fort Lauderdale FL to Los Angeles CA through the Panama Canal. We were not disappointed. The best part, by far, of this cruise was Bill Fall. This ...

Six amazing days and then there was Livorno.

On the whole this was a fantastic cruise. Gibraltar, Marseille, Genova, and even Pisa (once you manage to leave the port of Livorno) were all fantastic. I can highly recommend the itinerary. Buffet areas were ...

Our First Cruise

This was our first cruise. We had a mini-suite--the bedding was extremely comfortable and our Attendant Alex was perfect. Lots to do, we missed most of the shows. The comedian on the last night was great, the ...

Alaska 7 Night Emerald Princess

Chose the seattle roundtrip due to price savings vs vancouver or whittier. Flights and seattle extended stay costs post cruise were so high, should have skipped seattle. Also, not the usual Princess guest calibre, a ...

One of our least favourite cruises when compared to others.

We chose this cruise because it was in the school holidays and we had not been to New Zealand before. Whilst this cruise was perfectly fine and we enjoyed it, it was not up to the standards we have come to expect ...

Yes, there were long queues at embarkation but it's a world wide issue as port authorities ignore the need to rethink the embarkation process/facilities. All cruise lines are limited by the design of the terminals. ...
