My very first Cruise

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Valor

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

This was my very first cruise. It was a gift from a friend it was a spare of the moment trip. She asked me to go with her on the Friday that we got out for Thanksgiving break. She told me we were leaving that night to go to Galveston and we was going to sail out on the Saturday. She asked me to go on a cruise with her. I had a GREAATTT Time I can not wait to go on another. Next time I would like ...

Overall fun, just a couple negative experiences

Review for a Mexican Riviera Cruise on Navigator of the Seas

2-5 Cruises • Age 20s

Overall this cruise was well done—everything went smoothly, staff was friendly and helpful, food was well made, embarkation and disembarkation was a clear, simple and speedy process, a wide variety of activities were offered for varying interests. Unfortunately, there were two instances that quite negatively impacted my experience. The first being, I attended a minute-to-win it event that was ...

Cozumel made it worth it!

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Voyager of the Seas

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

My husband and I celebrated 20 years of marriage, and I graduated with my Masters degree. We planned to go with another couple. Long story short, we ended up with an interior room instead of a balcony as our friends were in and were very disappointed. Even worse, we paid the same amount, and their room FAR outdid ours. I would never be ok with an interior cabin again. Our cabin was so small my ...

Amazing service!

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Allure of the Seas

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

Honestly, I had really low expectations for this cruise after reading reviews on here, but it was close, and our first cruise back after Covid. I can't believe how bad the reviews are of this amazing ship! Yes, a little older, but well maintained in my opinion, and so much to do! Walking deck 8 in the garden was beautiful, and you had many options of places to go and things to do. The service on ...

Review for a Mexican Riviera Cruise on Carnival Panorama

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

Not good. I’m on ship now. There’s been no communication. There’s been soot on our patio in back ship. Curious where soot coming from. Some say maybe engine? Gotten on clothes and body. Surprised not addressed. Several times they’ve gone on our patio to clean it without notifying us. Glad we weren’t getting dressed. There’s been so many issues. The lining at pool at Havana also is coming apart got ...

No More Princess Cruises!

Review for a Mexican Riviera Cruise on Emerald Princess

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

This is my third Princess cruise, second with the medallion app. Last October on the Discovery we thought we were just having bad luck with their technology, but its failure this time around can’t be a coincidence. Trying to upload documents before the cruise was a joke, and it took sitting on hold for TWO HOURS to speak to a live human being to resolve it. We finally got that taken care of, and ...

Long lines, limited entertainment

Review for a Mexican Riviera Cruise on Emerald Princess

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

This was the only sailing during my anniversary. All the dining rooms were booked as they were only open for 4hrs a day. We were forced to eat in the cafeteria dining where the food was most often overcooked or undercooked and rarely open during posted hours. (24hr cafe listed in daily paper) Ordering on the my way ap took 2-5 hrs to get our order. Only 1 person was attending the bars, pizza, ...

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Disney Magic

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

We have cruised with different cruise lines over the last 15 years. Being a daughter of a Disney fanatic I had to try a Disney cruise for our grandkids. Let’s start with the positives. Our favorite bar to visit was Soul Cat Lounge. Isasias the Lead bartender is excellent and all of the hosts that work with him are the nicest and most friendly people ever! They really made our trip happy even ...

Absolutely ABYSMAL Cruise We Have EVER Taken!

Review for a Mexican Riviera Cruise on Emerald Princess

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

To begin, we spoke to numerous staff members who shared how severely understaffed they were on this ship for our trip. Room service took hours to complete and, that was IF you were lucky enough, they actually came. Guests we spoke with all joked about how useless the medallion app was when ordering anything. People were getting their food and drinks the following day or items that were not at the ...

Terrible teens

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Vista

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

There was so much bullying on this ship. Fights drinking and No supervision. Ages between 12-18 . Kids were beat up by groups. When I saw it I stopped it. Carnival make parents responsible for their kids poor behavior. No one wants to deal with little jerks. On a good note in Cozumel Charlie was a great guide . My husband and I went to the private house and brace all inclusive. Charlie made ...
