Disappointing in Every Way

|

We have been on about a dozen cruises, yet this was our first with Princess. The cruise began well enough. We embarked in Dublin and were literally in our cabin five minutes after arriving at the port. ...

Very disappointing

We chose this cruise because of its itinerary. I realize we may be somewhat jaded because we mostly travel on smaller luxury cruise lines, so I will begin with the positives. During our cruise the company ...

Avoiding Norovirus Requires a Clean Ship - And the Reflection was Not a Clean Ship

We have been on many cruises, in many parts of the world. Our cruises have been a mix of Oceania and Princess. We expect a clean ship. It’s the only way to avoid disease. We constantly wash our hands. The ...

Reflection is Focused on alcohol

For the destination. Sadly The ship was not spectacular or beautifully decorated. Their main focus was having alcohol available everywhere . Loud blaring music instead of relaxing Pianos, orchestras, or talented ...

Trans panama

First time with cruise maritime voyages and was disappointed. I should have realized a European cruise line was not to the expectation of the US branded companies. Food was not even average and must have been ...

Not Living Up to the Reputation

We put three cruises together starting in Dublin 7/18 and disembarking in Barcelona 9/1. The positive was the crew and service was excellent for the most part. The negative is extensive. The ship was not ...

Great itinerary, poor management

Better management and training of staff is needed. They need to be proactive. CMV needs to take care of people and the ship. I was on the Magellan. Even the Captain was hiding. It was overtaken by a dance troupe ...

Disappointing Rip-off

Chosen for the destination ports. The ports (Ireland, Iceland, Shetlands) did not disappoint, but some aspects of ship life were inadequate, particularly the main dining experience. Having travelled on several ...

Great Itinerary, old ship poorly maintained

I chose this cruise because it went to the island of Iona, a fascinating place where many ancient manuscripts were written, including the Book of Kells. The itinerary was great but the ship needs major updating ...

Not a luxury cruise that I've hoped for!

The old ship with an outdated decor and a very few amenities. The entertainment was limited to an OK band and a duo (husband and wife) singers. The food was OK, but not great. The cabin was small with a peeling ...

An Experience in Being Nickled and Dimed

THE GOOD The crew is extraordinarily gracious. This is a ship with a small passenger load (312). We particularly enjoyed Hotel Manager, Nick Berger. He is studying for U.S. citizenship, and the U.S. could do a ...

Avoid if you want an enjoyable holiday - overpriced, underwhelming and dangerous

Avoid at all costs. This was my 15th cruise, and my first - and last - with CMV. We chose it because it departed from Dublin. This was, in hindsight, the only real thing to recommend it. In short: terrible ...
