After so many fabulous Celebrity Cruises this was Benidorm at Sea Disinterested crew,unruly guests,cold food,average wines being passed off as premium,a front desk that was perfect at apologising without being pro active,repetitive menu in the ocean view unless you love fajitas and macaroni cheese every day... no description of your evening meal in the MDR just super swift need to clear ...

So many disappointments

Can I just firstly say that the crew were absolutely amazing, each and every one of them! Some days I did enjoy myself but for the most part I was not happy with this cruise at all. Firstly it was very overcrowded. Apparently it was some kind of record, over 3500 passengers. Due to this a lot of people could not get sun beds or even seats in the ocean view cafe to eat. You pay that much money ...

Because the ship was smaller, you have a more in depth service from the staff, this was true, the staff were fantastic, all were friendly and so very helpful in every way, the food in the Ocean View Cafe was superb, the chef's worked really hard, and produced the most wonderful array of cuisine, the ship was clean, and our cabin was small but manageable. The pool/sun deck was open until late, the ...

The ship itself was well equipped, our inside cabin was a good size. Both the embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly. The service on board ship was good, our cabin attendant was very good. As far as we are concerned the two things that really let this cruise down was its daytime activities, and the food. We did not like what was served in the main dining room most evenings so we ...

Cruise director discriminates against people from countries other than Britain

This ship does not suit international people. Too many bad jokes about Americans being obese, other people's use of English and other races. May not be intended but compare to other cruises it's a narrow minded ship. I wonder if the cruise director will change her tune if the ship sails other routes. On the plus side, the food is good and majority of the staff are friendly. Cabin is ...

We liked the ports in the brochure and I had enjoyed over a dozen cruises with Royal Caribbean in the past; however I had always booked my air and transfers myself. I am a Senior now and I am changing the way I travel to let others do some of the booking chores. We had Royal Caribbean do the Air and Sea Program for us, that is handle the flights from California to London and return, also all ...

Loved the main dining room and the staff , Blyton, Paul and Diana were fab. Grease was good and most of the other shows. The onboard activities were lacking unless you like quizzes! The ship was far too crowded , we couldn’t get seats on deck or in cafes , bars etc. Hated the reused plastic plates and glasses - yuck! Windjammer was poor, senior staff constantly asking for positive ...

I have just returned from 2/52 on RCI Independence of the Seas. Having taken the same cruise last year I was somewhat disappointed with the number of cutbacks RCI have made. There was no visible maintenance being done to the ship whilst docked or any cleaning of public areas. The drinks packages go from $10 to $23 and then hike up to $69. They have omitted the previous beer package and only ...

The only things they don't charge you for apart from the snacks on Deck 5, is the air you breathe and getting off/on the ship ! Bottled water in cabin $5 plus each! Food, both in the Sapphire and Windjammer very ordinary. One meal I ate gave me food poisoning and I was throwing up for one day and unable to eat for another. Steward just changed the towels and made the bed. Many coach trips ...
