Very poor service, horrible food, only chicken and bad spaguetti bolonese all very salty On dining room also the same. This is not the HAL standard I have experienced and made me to return. Crew without experience. Maintenance of vessel looks poor and with signs of rust. Safety???? Port calls very badly planned with long distances to walk from the vessel and no assistance or guidance. ...

Rio de Janiero to Lisbon April 8, 2022 16 nights My first MSC experience was the Opera in 2004. I had a great, 5-day cruise from San Juan to Florida. The crew was accommodating; the cruise director, in particular. He remembered my name after we met. I’ve been eager to sail MSC again, so when I saw a sailing from Rio to Lisbon, I just had to book it. I loved the ship, enjoyed wonderful ...

Friendly Staff but missing the Princess Flair

Review for Emerald Princess to Europe - British Isles & Western

Once again we chose to cruise on Princess Cruises due to previous amazing experiences. The itinerary was great, the staff super friendly but I must say that the food this cruise on the Emerald Princess sorely missed the mark on options, taste and food quality. Having been on previous Princess boats we had very much enjoyed the freshness, and flavour of the meals provided. This trip was a flop. ...

Round UK cruise from Southampton. The ship is tired and has signs of wear and tear. The floor of the main pool deck is churned up. The metal trim in the dinner room ceilings are stained and rusted. Food is mediocre at best. Portion sizes are very small. Princess have stopped most of the extra special luxuries that make cruising special. Consequently it feels more like a cross channel ferry. ...

Unique Itinerary, Wonderful Service

We've sailed on over a dozen cruise lines, but never on Princess. The smaller the cruise ship, the better, from our point of view, and the prospect of being on a ship with over 3000 passengers gave us pause. Nevertheless, we chose this cruise on the Emerald Princess because of its distinctive itinerary (Guernsey; Cobh/Cork; Dublin; Belfast; Glasgow; Orkney; Invergordon; Edinburgh and LeHavre), ...

Standards are Slipping

Review for Queen Victoria to Europe - British Isles & Western

We have cruised regularly on Cunard cruises for 15 years. The service provided by the waiters, bar staff and our cabin steward was the usual high standard. The food in the Princess Grill in the evenings was good. However the hot meals in the self service Lido were invariably luke warm/cold. The cost of drinks has risen with a large glass of wine costing on average around 13 US dollars. Our ...

We have been lucky to cruise many times with Cunard (like many of you) and other cruise companies we always chose Cunard for the standards and service, but the last 2 cruises post the Pandemic! have shown that they are making small cut backs, but blaming the pandemic!!!! Staff - Superb as always so attentive which we like, some may say its OTT, but compared to others that what to us makes ...

I think the food was the surprisingly best thing about the trip. It was gourmet and interesting and delicious. The onshore trips were well planned and great. The staff was unfailingly sweet and helpful.We were able to travel with someone in a wheelchair which was great too, they planned for "easy walking" options. The cabins were small but clean and the beds were very comfortable. We were ...

Acceptable but disappointing after many other cruise lines

Review for Celebrity Silhouette to Baltic Sea

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We chose this cruise as friends had been on it Before and said how good it was. Having done many previous cruises with Royal Caribbean, Princess, P&O, Carnval and the first ever withThomson (Tui-now Marella), I was expecting exciting things: believing that Celebrity were the 5* cruise line (out of the Carnival owned ships). Currently onboard and whilst aspects of the cruise are good, there are ...

This is only my opinion from being on this cruise compared to other cruise lines I have been on Positives - ship was easy to board very efficient no problems occurred . Staff as always there on hand so helpful and the long shifts they do they always have a smile and good morning/afternoon. Spotless ship can’t fault the cleanliness and the space we had in a balcony suite Negatives ( ...
