Beautiful Ship But Design Faults

Review for Iona to Europe - Western Mediterranean

THE SHIP Beautifully finished. Very large, but you do find your way around it quite quickly. There seemed to be more lifts and they were well placed. The theatre was spacious and comfortable however there were audio issues and also the air conditioners were too loud on the ‘talk’ days. The cinemas were compact but there was three of them which all played different films each day at regular ...

Absolute shambles from day one

Absolute shambles from day one. Absolute shambles from day one. Where do I start, to describe this fiasco, a cruise line that promotes itself as a five star floating hotel. I should have guessed things had changed as soon as we got onboard, no free bubbly as a welcome, in fact no one to welcome us on board, where was the entertainment manager, saw her once in all the two ...

Silver Moon - Great…Included Excursions - Not So Much

Southampton to Lisbon including St. Malo, Bordeaux, Bilbao and Porto. The ship is new and beautiful, public spaces well-designed and elegant. The service was mostly outstanding from cabin attendants, butlers and the waitstaff. One exception was in Atlantide where service was extremely slow and at times a bit unpolished. Hot Rocks Grill in the evening was also slow and the food was bland. Food ...

Third P&O cruise and chosen for the stops in Spain and France. Food and service were impeccable. Port organisation was superb. Ports and weather were very enjoyable, particularly Valencia (Spain) and Toulon (France) Luxury Balcony cabin as ever was well organised and comfortable. What we missed was: 1. Presence of officer staff on black tie nights, making them a bit like damp ...

Disappointed but not surprised

I was really looking forward to my first Med cruise in 3 years but I was very disappointed with this cruise. Britannia herself is clean and tidy enough but I really miss having a proper prom deck to walk around - for most of the cruise, exits to prom deck were closed off. I used The Retreat most days and while it was a bonus having a quiet, adult only area, it looked very tired - ripped beds, ...

Lost a little love for RC this time around

Review for Anthem of the Seas to Europe - Western Mediterranean

4th cruise with RC and always been a fan before. First off the entertainment wasn't bad but very repetitive. The band playing in the Music Hall (the Dukes) played virtually every night and Phillippa the guitarist/vocalist played every night in the english pub. Previously you would have had more variety but less music (sometimes nice to have it quiet!). Shows were badly planned with regards to main ...

We excitingly embarked on this two week sailing for what we hoped would be a nice way to relax and unwind - how very wrong we were. When we first arrived we had high hopes as we had cruised on the Anthem twice before and had a great experience. The main issue was the many teenagers running up and down the hallways and banging on doors and walls, being rude and intimidating to other guests and crew ...

We are diamond plus cruisers with RCCL. However, this cruise was a wake-up call after the Covid shut down RCCL have cut everything to the bone. The first night 2 untrained waiters served cold main course steak with fries, had a replacement Steak and fries but could not cut the Steak with the provided steak knife so this once again got returned, This happened 5 times on various occasions to me ...

Disappointing Mediterranean Cruise on the P&O Aurora

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We were really looking forward to our cruise because it had been four years since our last cruise but due to a family bereavement and Covid, this was our first since then. The staff were amazing especially the waiters and buffet crew although some passengers thought there was nothing wrong in asking a bar waiter to walk a few hundred yards to get them a coffee from the buffet. Some people ...

Iona good and bad

Booked this one as wanted to see what Iona was like and to get away on a cruise again. Boarding and testing was mostly good and fast and we kept on moving but we did keep getting asked the same questions about 4 times by different people and the lady checking us in was dreadful - I couldn’t hear anything she said , she made no effort to be clearer for us and seemed as if she didn’t want to be ...
