Review for Zenith to Europe - All

Loud people, rude staff, we were told off in the bar by a surly waiter for lifting a hand to attract his attention. The bar was open too late as at 4.30 in the morning we were awoken by screams and shouts going past the door. The tours were apalling, no organisation on the ship at all, we were always the last off the ship. Then almost at the end of the cruise we had food poisoning, a final insult ...

Price from local agent including transport excellent value fully inclusive. Beware buying extra tonic Etc in Tins you will be charged ! Toilet system vacuum failed so had a few bad days having to wait or use public toilets. However bottle of bubbly sent down as a way of saying sorry. Shore excursions (transport only) very good especially Monaco where we even got a free courier on the ...

We sailed from Alicante. I have given 5 stars as I am taking the price into consideration. If I had paid double, I may have given 3.5 stars. I travelled with my husband and 4 other couples aged from 49 to 71, but also knew about 10 other people. Downside.... Toilet system is on a par with an aeroplane, a suction system that can't cope with toilet paper, you are advised to not put paper ...

Cruise was advertised with a mini suite, only five days before we received cabin number. Not a mini suite, a very poor " de luxe" balcony cabin. Not as advertised and sold. Agent blames Pulmantur and flatly refused to accept responsibility even though they advertised and sold product. Very poor quality cabin, no kettle, air con ineffective, no fridge and orders not to put paper down the ...

Took this cruise as a long needed break and the first proper holiday in 8 years. Boarded at Alicante on day 2 of the of the cruise, which started in Malaga. Embarkation was relatively smooth and we were on our way on time and looking forward to the week Our cabin was an "Exterior Superior" on deck 6 and was reasonably spacious with a very comfortable bed and small but comfortable pillows. ...

Convenient from Alicante. Reasonable price, but noway is the ship up to scratch. The service from the waiters in the restaurants was SUPERB. The steward for our cabin was very efficient and obliging. The restaurants and food were great. BUT The cabin was RIDICULOUS. ( see below) and shows that quantity is more important than quality. Another example of the ridiculous design was the ...

This past September 2016 I took a cruise on the Monarch with Pullmantur. The price was a great value and the cruise was worth every penny since I paid less than $600 for this cruise and it was a 15 day cruise. Was everything excellent? No, but for me the ship was comfortable the food was good and the staff were upbeat and nice to be around. The food at the buffet was very good and the dinner ...

As a family we wanted to make our annual vacation. Firstly our local agency misguided us about the age of ship. We wanted to travel with a new ship. But Zenith was built in 1992 and unfortunately it felt that way; from the smell and service to the furniture. Although some of dining serving staff were helpful, most of bartenders were grumpy and somewhat careless. During seven days at least three ...

My husband and I booked this, as it was Malta to Malta and we had no flying. Having done approximately 10 other cruises before, we can honestly say this was down there at the bottom. The embarkation process was excellent, well organised and very quick. Our cabin (1007) which was a balcony, was ready upon embarkation and was a reasonable size with lots of storage,, however there starts the ...
