Review for Azura to Europe - All

What a shame, Just been on 3rd and last cruise on Azura. The experience has been cost cutted too far. The prices no longer reflect value for money in my opinion. I used to love Azura but after being woken up at 5.30am by cabin on ship shuddering with side engines all draws rattling etc. Having breakfast and my eggs being "forgotten" by waiter in restaurant, only to bring them 20 ...

We sailed on this ship before covid and it was fine,however the ship has gone downhill fast. Bad bits No cruise director No orchestra Stage shows poor Lack of maintenance obvious with common areas tired and cabins clean but need a refresh, The buffet is too small and the food is probably better in prison as for breakfast they have floating scrambled eggs , brown stuff they say ...

It was as cheap and now I know why, , things have changed, no cruise Director, No backing orchestra, Food in buffet is like slop, limited choice, presentation like school dinners and the onboard bakery is manned by school children im sure as cakes are like amateurs efforts., very tired ship, paint peeling, cabins clean but tired., basically everything seem to be done on a reduced budget. Obvious ...

Great ports but the service and ship were a huge disappointment

Where to begin… First, thing to know is that even though you may have paid for excursions in advance. Excursions are not confirmed by the ship until the night before the excursion port at 8pm. Which means you may have your plans cancelled at the last minute and have very few options to rebook as the good tours are already full. This was very frustrating as we had 2 tours cancelled the night ...

Review for AmaCerto to Europe - River Cruise

We wanted to try a different river cruise line and selected Ama, sailing on the AmaCerto from Basel to Amsterdam. The crew really made the cruise special. They were very accommodating, and always placed guest enjoyment as their top priority. They were quick to learn our names and our meal preferences. Speaking of meals, the food was wonderful. Ama ships also have an included specialty ...

Israel, Egypt & Cypress: excellent excursions, good food, and good service

Review for Azamara Journey to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

While searching for cruise-related information on the internet, I noticed an offer from Azamara for a last-minute deal on a cruise to Cypress, Israel, and Egypt. The price was excellent--less than I had just paid for a Princess cruise of the same length 2 months earlier. When I first saw the ship from the outside, I was taken aback as it appeared to be a much older-looking ship than I imagined. ...

Wonderful Viking Cruise Duoro River Portugal

Review for Viking Hemming to Europe - River Cruise

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Portugal is a beautiful country, and a river cruise is a great way to do it. The Viking Hemming crew was exceptional, the tour guides were very enlightening and the travel in the Mercedes bus to the off-river sites was extremely comfortable. No complaints at all. We found the food to be excellent, and the servings were perfectly apportioned. The wait staff was very courteous and brought us ...

We Chose Viking because we heard a lot of positive comments about Viking. They really do care about your experience. The cruise was great except we did not realize how many locks we would encounter (lots of noise and bumps while cruising - especially at night). Food was quite good and staff most accommodating. Entertainment was not that great -- the best was music trivia night. Generally, it ...

A Beautiful Classic Ship

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

My wife and I have been on cruises with all the major lines. This cruise was magical. First --hats off to Cunard for even adding this itinerary--chasing the Northern Lights in Norway was a gamble. It was spectacular --and we had two ports cancelled as a result of storms. This ship is not a "rust bucket"--it is a beautiful and understated ship with great common areas; great staff; the best ...
