Review for MSC Orchestra to Europe - Western Mediterranean

When searching for my third cruise and having experienced more premium offerings, i discovered this 10 day western Medi itinerary. Immediate concerns were that i heard MSC was an average cruise line, in the same club as RCL and Carnival. So what did i thought? Ok, we will have the ports. The food, staff, ship will be secondary. Completely wrong idea. Lets review by items: Ship: recently ...

Review for Silver Dawn to Mediterranean

I have just got home from 7 days, from Lisbon to Barcelona, on the Silver Dawn. I have been very disappointed in the whole trip after seeing all the breathless comments on how good Silverseas are. They have serious lessons to learn if they are going to continue selling themselves as a 6 star cruise line. On arrival at the port in Lisbon we found a long queue standing outside in the midday sun, ...

First time SilverSeas after several Regent cruises. We were looking forward to trying Silver Seas and their new ship Silver Dawn seemed the ideal opportunity. It turned out to be the first cruise as earlier trips were put off. First impressions were not good with a 100 metre queue for embarcation - fortunately not raining in Lisbon but a cold breeze. There were only 2 check in desks operational ...

No Medals for Silversea Silver Spirit

We wish we could share positive feedback. As we have been on other cruise lines over the years, our general comparative experience with Silversea was not the best. Additionally, we had other issues that made our cabin experience uncomfortable. The first few days, a foul smell (sewage) came from the bathroom that they had difficulty containing. When potent cleaning agents were used, it ...

We have sailed twice before with SS and enjoyed it. This was prior to its buy out. Joining the ship at Lisbon after queuing for 3 hours in passport control , we eventually found a SS rep who put us on a coach to travel to the port. Stood for a long time in the sun in a queue that was not moving. No communication by staff there. Once we started to move (1 hour later) the check in and ...

Well maintained vessel, but standards have definitely dropped

Review for Riviera to Mediterranean

We chose this cruise to get back onto the water. Like so many others, we missed cruising through the pandemic. We saw this cruise surface, realised the vessel was not fully booked, had the time and made the booking. We had cruised on Riviera in December 2018 (from Miami) and Marina in 2017 (from Rome) so we are familiar with the line and the vessel. We enjoy the Penthouse Suites (from 2018) and ...

Oceania Still Delivers Post-Pandemic, Albeit a Bit Differently

Review for Marina to Mediterranean

Like many avid cruisers, we had several much anticipated cruises cancelled during the pandemic that shut down much of the world in 2020 and 2021. Our cruise, Iberia to Italia, was one of the first aboard Marina, the first of Oceania's ships to return to service post-pandemic. Prior to providing details of our experience it's important to note that there were still a great many COVID restrictions ...

MSC is deteriorating

Review for MSC Preziosa to Europe - Western Mediterranean

Embarkation was quick and smooth. The Preziosa is a beautifull ship with a good layout. We were cruising in an Aurea suite which includes the ‘Easy’ drinking package, massage and spa access. Overall food quality is below average, in the buffet hot food is just warm. If you’re looking for Nutella or something alike they refer to the shop where you can buy(!) it. Never heard that one before. At ...

Average, not as Luxurious or 5 star as touted

Review for Marina to Mediterranean

We sailed aboard Oceania Marina from Lisbon to Monte Carlo Sept 29 – to Oct 6 2019. Our expectations and excitement for the journey as well as the Marina were high based on much research and Oceania’s marketing. Our cruise experience was not five star/luxury, intimate, personal, or warm. Cabin and Concierge Service Cabin service was average, but not personalized or attentive beyond usual ...

This was our 6th Oceania Cruise, 3 on each Riviera and Marina. This size of ship suits and have not tried the smaller ones. We booked our flights independently and flew to Lisbon on the day of the cruise arriving at the terminal about 11am, had a quick coffee at the coffee shop next to the cruise terminal and a Pasteis de Nata which was delicious. Embarkation was quick and efficient and we ...
