Good, but not a "Premium All-Inclusive" as Mein Schiff advertises...

Just came back from our first ever Mein Schiff cruise, and my first German speaking ship experience (my partner has been once on the AIDA). This was our 28th cruise. I, a non-german, but German speaking person, give this ship a 3 out of 5. My partner, German born and raised, gives it a 4. Both of us liked a few things, and disliked a few others. All in all, we found the "Premium All Inclusive" ...

We are loyal Celebrity cruisers (8 cruises sind 2013, mostly Aqua Class), but with the newly introduced price increases we wanted to try something new. As German natives it was logic to try a German cruiseline. As we love being serviced at the table, TUI was the only option for us. Unfortunately we were not as happy as with Celebrity (although we did enjoy the cruises of course): - In ...

Some lovely restaurants attended by excellent waiting staff. Three of the six restaurants have an additional charge applied. Most of the food was very good with only one or two disappointing meals experienced during our week long stay. The bars look very 70's but were also well attended. The cabins are a bit bland whilst the communal parts of the ship appear very dated. My wife and I enjoyed ...

Travelling as a solo passenger, I have just returned from a cruise to the Canary Islands and Morocco with MSC Armonia. We usually sail with Thompson but the MSC cruise seemed a cheaper option as there is little no single supplement surcharge. Here are my thoughts and impressions. The ship and services After its recent upgrade I found the ship to be well maintained and modern. My cabin (an inside ...

Getting on the ship was speedy enough and we did queue for some unexplained reason, that happened coming off as well. Of the whole cruise it was the rooms that put us off this cruise as they are so small and extremely dated, but kept very clean. The ship was kept very clean throughout. Service at the bars was very good as even with a sizable queue you didn't need to wait long. As with the rooms ...

We booked a cheap 7nt inside cabin cruise. Ship was clean, well presented. Staff were pleasant and courteous. Shows were ok, nothing amazing. Plenty of lounges, places to drink, relax etc. Food in main dining room was mediocre. Sauces were on the bland side, more like glorified gravy. Would be most disappointed to have paid for a suite/balcony cabin and receive the same food. Cabin was simple, ...

What's happened then Thompsons? Such a big difference in service and quality from our cruise from last New Year. Two dates for embarkation 27 and 28 December We joined the ship in Gran Canaria on 28th December. Arrived late due to air traffic problems over Portugal. Transfer from airport to ship was swift and efficient. Got on board at 9.20pm and lined up to register our credit card etc, about 20 ...

Read loads of reports on forums and agree with most of the 3 star ratings. We also have some friends who have been on this ship before. Some things people find fault with are ridiculous. Plastic plates drop the ratings. Who's bothered if the plates are plastic??? Overall enjoyed the cruise but there are some issues mainly due to the fact this ship is a converted ferry. If we go on another cruise ...

I was really disappointed in this 1st Experience of a cruise. We traveled in a group of 51. Had we been on our own I would have got off before we sailed and paid for a flight home. Fortunately being in a group made the trip OK. The cabin we had was very basic, which did not worry me too much but was quite big in comparison to some other members of our group. One of my biggest moans is the way ...
