Service Good, but experience levels are confusing

We were visiting Venice and added on this cruise since the price was very good. Stayed in suite on deck 12, cabin 12047 specifically (with Aurea package). Cabin steward was good. Cabin spacious, but layout a bit odd. Approximately 15 feet wide by 33 feet long. Bed headboard was next to interior bulkhead, sometimes carts hit the bulkhead while sleeping. Also, cabin is located underneath a ...

All excellent apart from one major flaw in you like to lounge in the sun.

We went on the 11 day cruise and picked the Getaway as we have been on the ship before. The ship has everything you need and the food and service is next to none. But there is one reason that I would not sail on the Getaway again. We had two sea days and we were told that the ship was 50% full. I knew that the Vibe section had been expanded but not to the extent that it has been. At around 10.30 ...

Just disembarked yesterday, so I thought I'd review while it's still fresh in my mind. Embarkation in Civi was smooth and seamless and well organized, the whole process took less than 1/2 hour. When we got to our balcony stateroom there was a strong urine smell in the toilet area, not a great first impression. Off I went to guest services, where they apologized and promised to have the ...

Welcome Back to Cruising on Oceania

Review for Marina to Mediterranean

We have all experienced the pandemic and wondered what cruising would look like in the New Reality. We took a chance on an early return to cruising on Oceania Marina and are so glad we did. Pre-cruise, there was a lot of uncertainty, with various European ports opening/closing/changing requirements. Oceania could have handled communications better with passengers. However, O offered ...

Nice ship, but extremely poor communication

I don't have a lot of bad things to say about the cruise overall. The entertainment was sparse, but what we saw was generally good. Food was mostly excellent, although it's very clear they want you to go to the speciality restaurants, which we didn't try. The people standing in the dining room singing "washy washy" when you enter was EXTREMELY annoying - who thought that talking to guests like ...

Norwegian Getaway - Inaugural Sailing with Paid Passengers - September 13, 2021

Like many cruisers, we had multiple cruises cancelled in 2020 and 2021. We selected this cruise because it began on our anniversary and allowed us to use a voucher for a previously scheduled trans-Atlantic flight. Our original cabin was a 2-BR Haven suite. We bid on the low end for the H2 and H3 cabins, although I knew they were not available at the time of our booking. We won the bid for an ...

Azamara is back and even better!

Having had many cruises on Azamara, most great a few not 100% we planned our return to the high seas post lockdown to be on Azamara. We went with varying expectations - could it be as good as before, might it be less good or could we strike lucky? After all not only had we been seeing the Azamara vessels laid up every time we shopped in a Glasgow shopping centre and worried about them, the ...

This was our 5th MSC cruise and 3rd in Yacht Club (we have taken 30+ cruises from Carnival to Regent and a suite on the QE2). The prior 4 were out of Miami therefore we are not sure which differences were COVID-related and which relate to the different ship or location. Booking this cruise was a "roll of the dice" after three prior cancellations. We were not sure that it would actually take place ...

Worst excursion ever

First I would like to say the crew on Norwegian epic was wonderful!! Waited a year and a half just to go on my first cruise with Norwegian. We booked excursions for every port. We were so excited ! We enjoyed all our excursions until our last one to Florence and Pisa. That was the worst experience I’ve ever had on an excursion on any cruise. The tour guide was rude, she constantly put down Pisa ...

We thought the drinks package was pretty good (premium) so no complaints about that. The staff in general work very hard, they are very friendly and try to engage as much as possible and they really make you feel welcome. I big shout out to the staff at the Champagne bar who looked after us really well and also the two girls who worked in the Master Tavern so if you happen to go to these ...
