Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Crystal Symphony

Pros-Food and service on the ship-fantastic! Quiet ship. Clean. Entertainment positive-outside of the need to STOP the show one night since the performer was clearly impaired. Cons-communications. Good luck with trying to find anyone regarding excursions. Not only is the communication bad, but the tours are also a mess. We were a guinea pig for a first time tour and it was dismal. Trying to ...

Wonderful Med Cruise on Symphony

We thoroughly enjoyed our seven night Mediterranean cruise on Crystal Symphony. We had some trepidation about the age of the ship, but the public areas and our suite were in pristine condition. The crew is experienced and polished, and they do everything possible to ensure that passengers have an enjoyable cruise. There were about 500 passengers on this cruise. This was perfect, as the public ...

Overall, this is a very good cruise. Ports of call is what made us decide on this one. Portugal, Spain, and a spot in Morocco. Although we had a good time, there were a few things that irked us in that it seems like Celebrity is slipping off their game on one hand and taking customers for granted on the other. I assume most large cruise lines are the same these days, basking in having large demand ...

Ship was easy to get around and the staff was great. We had a veranda balcony and the room was fine but it does not have plugs or USB ports by the bedside tables. There are two by the desk which is inconvenient. The bathroom is older and has small shelves but the lighting needs improvement. Food was hit and miss. At the main dining room, they only change 2 appetizers and 2 entrees each night so ...

I was recently on the Equanox 5/16 Saling out of Lisbon . I was expecting so much more than i received . I was booked in a concierge cabin , Which according to Celebrity comes with some perks . There were no real perks , we would have been better off with a delux balcony room . There was no priority boarding , there was never a person at the concierge help desk , nor was there ever a person to ...

Swan Hellenic Perfection

We cruised for ten days on Swan Hellenic (Vega) from Lisbon, Portugal to Spain, France, and finally Portsmouth UK. I'm not a very experienced cruiser but travelling on a small boat was a totally different experience than a huge one (previously traveled on 4k passenger ship... SH Vega 152). We loved it and won't go back to big ships. The level of service on our cruise was astounding. The ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

We embarked on Star Pride's captivating Canary Islands cruise from Lisbon on April 12, 2024 We have an ocean-view suite. The cabin was nice and spacious, which was the best part of the cruise. Several aspects could have been better managed - the printed itinerary that we got in the cabin was updated several times as there were typos/careless mistakes (e.g. wrong dates, a day gone missing, ...

NCL Star needs new management

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

As a 40year old who has cruised multiple cruise lines, my first experience on a NCL boat makes me consider selling my NCL stock because as a shareholder I don’t believe NCL will be able to entice the next generation of cruisers with the way the operations are run. • La Rochelle Port o We had a private tour scheduled for La Rochelle that we missed 1hr of the 2.5hr tour because the shuttle ...

We are seasoned cruisers and always look forward to a new experience. However, NCL is a total nightmare to deal with, from start to finish. We booked the cruise and airfare through NCL the beginning of January. Ten days before our sailing, all of our flights were changed, leaving us scrambling to board the ship on time. We spent an entire day trying to rebook flights, calling NCL and both airlines ...

DON'T BELIEVE ALL OF THE NEGATIVITY

Don't understand the harsh reviews this boat has received. Yes, the buffet and central atrium area small and the food quality in the buffet is average to good but that's the case with all of the major cruise lines. If you're looking for a 4-star dining experience in a cruise ship buffet you need to be looking elsewhere. The main dining room was solid. The staff was very good, the balcony ...
