Not enough seating in lounge areas

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on MSC Euribia

ikesyd
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Not a fan of big ships but chose this cruise for the itinerary. Thought with the port visits we could deal with the number of passengers. Ship is very nice and kept clean. What it suffers from is lack of staff serving in lounge areas for ordering drinks and receiving them. Long delays! Also being able to find a seat was also an issue - especially on sea days. Due to a storm in the English Channel ...

Don't sail with MSC

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on MSC Preziosa

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

Choose for the price and ports, but what a mistake. I'm sure you have read about the terrible food, but that just doesn't do it justice. All meat is served cold and raw, including bacon and hot dogs. Dinner always includes a (venomous) Cuttlefish and Squid salad (?) or some kind of (hopefully worm) under prepared fish, that I was was to scared to order. The staff is friendly and attentive and ...

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on MSC Euribia

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We did a dozen of cruises on almost all mainstream cruise lines, but this was our first one on MSC. Having sailed with Costa though we knew a bit what to expect. We did the cruise with friends who where first time cruisers. I chose the Euribia on this 6 day Hamburg to Southampton cruise for a couple of reasons. First of all the opportunity to try a big ship. We have only been on smaller ships and ...

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on MSC Euribia

Sailed from Hamburg in the Yacht Club. Check in a breeze, was met at the tent outside in front of the terminal, our bags were taken, a butler took us to check in, no waiting. Took approx 30 mins from the tent to being served a drink in the YC lounge. our cabin was ready 1 hour later at 11.15 am. Our cabin was very spacious and well set out, with much more storage than you will ever need. ...

Below is a brief review of our sailing on Queen Mary 2, September 20-29, 2023, 9 nights, from Hamburg to Southampton and on to New York. This was part of a 5 week trip that began in Milan, Italy at the end of August, and included a 7 night sailing on the Azamara Onward from Rome to Venice. We were in an Interior cabin with a window overlooking the multi-story lobby. We had noticed these ...

Return to a Heritage Homeland

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on MSC Preziosa

Heartgrove
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was a cruise that we have looked forward to for over a year. We had booked two connecting Fantastica Experience staterooms with included WiFi and the Easy Plus package. DSIL was coming along for her first trip to Europe so that made it special. We flew into Hamburg via Copenhagen with an open-jaw for our return flight so that we could include a visit to Copenhagen. We chose the Hotel Furst ...

a failure of luxury

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Explora I

vistaman
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

With very high expectations I joined the Explora I in Hamburg for a 12 days cruise to Glasgow. After the usual embarkation paperwork was done , I was able to go on board however contrarely to most " luxury ships " there were no single assistants to carry the hand luggage on board and the way to the gangway at the Altona terminal is rather steep. For a " luxury" ship Explora I is quite a big ...

Oceania sinks to new lows

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Marina

Debarrow
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Currently on board Marina on second leg of two from Amsterdam to London-19 days. This is 4th cruise with Oceania and first post Covid. Very sad to report, in my opinion, the Oceania of the pass is no longer a float. We have experienced almost across the board changes in service, food quality and selection and poor attitudes. Transfers from the hotel in Amsterdam was simply chaotic to ...

Disappointment, not recommended

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Marina

thangnam1
10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Oceania markets itself as a luxury brand, but did not meet my expectations. Service: This is such an important part of trying to distinguish oneself from other cruise lines. Service felt unorganized, as if this is the first week on the job for many workers. Staff in the Terrace Cafe buffet needs to be trained what they are serving. I needed to cancel the reservation at Jacques (due to ...

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Marina

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

This was a somewhat spontaneous cruise for us, as we had an unexpected travel window open up. After searching various destinations and travel options, I found this one with the PERFECT itinerary and booked a cabin just a month before departure. I've read various reviews and they are all either glowing or damning for Oceania and I really wasn't sure what to expect. What I kept saying to my husband ...
