The most fantastic cruise of our lives

I've seen some less than stellar reviews regarding the RC Western Mediterranean. If you will notice, most of the complaints seem to be focused on alcohol problems, and posted by alcoholics (IMHO). The Allure of the ...

I loved almost everything about MSC. My other experience of a cruise is Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas. I would say the major differences in US and European cruises are the food and entertainment. Royal Caribbean ...

Sumptuous surroundings to unwind after Christmas!

We'd travelled on Viking Sky on our honeymoon, and knew the exceptional level of service that Viking aim to deliver, so this was a much anticipated opportunity to relax. Cabins are all outside, all with balconies ...

Mediteranean Odessy Cruise Exceeded Our Expectations! Superior Customer Service

We choose the cruise because it hit 10 cities in 13 days. It was a great way to get a flavor of various countries so we could decide which ones to return to and spend more time. There were 420 employees for 850 ...
