Review for a Africa Cruise on MSC Splendida

Horrible experience so far. Over crowded everywhere queues for days to do just about anything, including accessing lifts. People are frustrated and impatient and thus pushes in lines and literally fight for space in the pools. Dirty. Cheap food. To top it off our ship is stuck in the Harbour. What a terribly disappointing experience. Stuck for another 3 days hoping to 'cruise to nowhere' instead ...

Horror Cruise! Norwengian is no longer Norwengian! Since COVID, NCL cruises have deteriorated in an inexplicable way. We are on board the Dawn crossing from Africa to Europe. An outbreak of gastroenteritis on board. Hundreds with diarrhea, including crew. The same ship, on the last cruise before this one, had already been quarantined on the Mauritius Coast with cholera suspected. It seems they ...

Trouble on NCL Dawn in Africa

There is something definitely wrong on this ship. I got a stomach virus after 3 days of sailing and was put in isolation. After taking my medicine, I barely are for the subsequent 3 days. And, I got the bug, again. I traced my problem to a common denominator: Caesar Salad. The Captain ordered that crews must serve passengers in the buffet area. We aren't even allowed to get water by ourselves. ...

I was disappointed with this cruise. I think NCL had a chance to make it something special but chose not to. We had only sailed on Norwegian once before and had not particularly enjoyed it but the itinerary that NCL originally offered with stops in West Africa, Cape Verde and Morocco was so unusual and interesting that we decided to give Norwegian another go. The first disappointment was that ...

Fascinating itinerary, but flawed execution

There are going to be a lot of very negative reviews for this cruise, and there were many problems with it. There were four missed ports, an itinerary change after final deposits were made, and a lot of difficulties with ports that were visited. Additionally, the passengers on this cruise were exceptionally savvy travelers, and exceptionally sophisticated and experienced frequent cruisers with ...

Just returned from a cruise on Norwegian Dawn around South Africa. We had notification before leaving that we would not be visiting Ludderitz in Namibia, and the time in Durban would be reduced to 4 hours. We had 3 consecutive days at sea, and another two individual days at sea. At Richards Bay we were docked at a coal processing plant. Nowhere to go, and we were charged $10 to get a shuttle bus ...

Booked through Iglu cruises who were good 3 days in Cape Town far outwayed our expectations- fantastic stay ….Then we got on the ship . Should have stayed in Cape Town. Boat is shabby . We had a restricted view cabin on deck 8 . When I say restricted- couldn’t see anything but life boat . Layout of cabin awful . You couldn’t get to one side of bed which had its head below windows . Very ...

Having sailed with a number of different cruise lines sailing with NCL was our worst experience by far. Itinerary: Between booking (March 2023) and sailing: the itinerary promised by NCL when booking last year looked so promising but the numerous changes before the sail date included severely reduced times at ports of call and a completely cancelled port. On querying this prior to ...
