Review for Disney Magic to Baltic Sea

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Chosen to take grand children on a holiday, originally intended to be 2 years ago but deferred because of Covid. Although Disney Magic is the oldest in the fleet, she is an elegant well appointed ship of a comfortable size, there were 2100 guests on board for this sailing, neatly full. Firstly the gripes: Disney’s chosen health partner Prenetics need to up their game and improve the website. ...

Initially chose this cruise as my very elderly parents needed a holiday and flying was out of the question. Found the staff very helpful and friendly. The cabins one of the largest I have come across at sea with a decent bathroom. The ship was heavily decorated with an Italian renaissance theme which may some of the communal areas including 9th floor buffet restaurant area dark. Eat ...

This was our 4th Carnival cruise, but the first one we've taken in Europe. Embarkation went well, although the coach transfer from London to Dover, which we purchased from Carnival, departed 50 minutes late. We had hoped to get to Dover with time to explore before departure, but the coach got there too late. Generally we found the food to be quite good. They no longer provide menus in the ...

Annoying emails about wheelchair and disembarkation nightmare

Chose this cruise for its itinerary and price. Guest service kept annoying and harassing me about the wheelchair from day one. I kept explain it was a collapsible wheelchair and that I could still walk to the water shuttles but they kept sending emails and harassing me even after I emailed their president Ms Christine Duffy and after I was already on the ship. Carnival needs to learn how to treat ...

Lack of being able to contact somebody and speak to them about queries. Our travel agent advised us to look on Carnival website. We did this which was confusing on occasions as Covid testing requirements in one place just said a covid test and in another stated a PCR which was a lot more expensive. Check in was quick and efficient, probably due to filling in details online prior to boarding ...

The worst holiday I have ever had!

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

From start to finish this holiday was awful and caused me more stress than I ever want to experience again. Before going we had to fight for every bit of information, we couldn't plan anything as we just couldn't get the information we needed. On arriving on board I was very excited as so many people had such great stories about cruising, only to find an old, tired and worn ship that had ...

Tired Ship with Poor COVID-19 Hygiene

Carnival Pride trip to Norway The sights and ports were stunning but the ship is old and needs a complete renovation. Staff were indifferent and at times downright rude. I have never seen so many crew members using their personal phones before and there are not many cheery greetings on board from staff in passing as we have come to expect. The service in main dining room was shocking, ...

We received a text offering this cruise as a very competitive price so we decided to bite the bullet and do our first post covid cruise. We usually sail with P and O, this was our first time on Carnival so we were interested to see how they compare. Our cruise company used Port Parking which had a 15 minute transfer from Folkestone, embarkation was fairly smooth, a bit of queuing outside the ...

When we first boarded we experienced horrible service. Workers were rude. If you look too young to be able to buy anything they will treat you like you are not even there. So make sure when you are talking to the workers you put on a nice dress and a diamond necklace so that they will treat you with respect. The detail on the avtivities on the cruise were misleading. Dont trust anything that says ...

The ship is old, so you do need to overlook the wear and tear, but the smaller size is nice. First the bad-- 1) Embarkation was the biggest mess I have ever seen-- all the tour buses came at the same time, there was no plan and we stood outside in the cold for several hours A HUGE mess. Started the trip on a bad note. 2) The food is so-so, watery eggs in the morning, dried out hamburger ...
