Disappointing in Every Way

Review for Crown Princess to Europe - British Isles & Western

Age 50s

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. Unfortunately, it was all downhill from there. The room was an unobstructed Oceanview in a quiet area of the ship. The shower consistently flooded, the faucet water rarely produced anything but ...

TARNISHED CROWN ON THE CROWN PRINCESS

The Itinerary of the Cruise was extremely appealing and the truth is that the ports of call were wonderful and we very much enjoyed all of our excursions and ports of call. The specialty restaurants were outstanding and the Da Vinci restaurant was very good. We found the food to be very good. The customer service and communications on board the ship were severely lacking. We received ...

We have experience on four different cruise lines. This cruise took us to the British Isles aboard the Crown Princess, It was our first and last with Princess Lines. With the exception of entertainment the most comfortable bed ever, and our cabin steward, everything was below average, We are not whiners and try to look for the best so I'll share a few examples to document our disappointment.

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 upgraded their software in an attempt to improve their Internet, door locks and security system. Their service in most of their restaurants was very good and the food in their specialty ...

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

Review for Celebrity Reflection to Europe - British Isles & Western

Age 70s

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 was by far the worst experience. No wash stations at the buffet. Many waiters pimping booze, but not cleaning tables. No beverage service at the tables, the centralized beverage ...

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 musicians. Only the last night was an Irish band and dancers presented at the theatre. Of all my cruises, the main dining room was the worst I’ve experienced. Main courses were plainly ...

Age 50s

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 tailored to the English crowd. Of the 1350 passengers 95% we from UK, 2% from USA and remaining from elsewhere. Itinerary changes made to accommodate the UK flight arrangements took us from ...

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 from Liverpool. Nobody wanted to take a stance in keeping the children out of the adult only areas, including the hot tubs. Children were up until all hours roaming the ship, including the ...

Age 70s

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 particularly stable with a good deal of pitching and rolling in calm to moderate seas. Vibrations at the stern were noticeable even on the 10th deck. Some people in cabins at the rear ...

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 customer service; no interest in resolving issues (including disabled passengers not being accommodated with shuttle buses - one woman with arthritis of the spine was made to wait for an ...
