Review for a Hawaii Cruise on Celebrity Solstice

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

We booked Aqua class, as had done several times before. Not worth it, and for much less, you get almost the same in other categories, like Veranda or Concierge. Blu restaurant was always full, had to wait 15-20 minutes every evening, no matter what time we arrived. Breakfast is available between 7.30 and 9. Good but very slow. Seems they are short on personnel. Menu not as good as it used to ...

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Norwegian Encore

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

My cruise isn’t over yet but I know this will be my last NCL cruise. I’ll try to be as objective as I can. Pros: - Newer ship. - Embarkation process was easy. - The Starbucks staffs are very friendly, efficient. Even when there’s a line it moves quickly. - The A-List bar outside of Los Lobos specialty dining was great. Spicy margaritas only served there and was excellent. - The ...

Beautiful Ship

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Discovery Princess

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Loved the ship, Crew and service!! Great views... Rooms are awesome and the technology is top of the line! Glenn was always there to take of anything we needed and so friendly and amazing at what he does! We enjoyed the beautiful ship never had to wait for drinks or food.. We also had a great server Luka in the GiGi's Pizza area, Luka was so funny and intertaining while he was ...

Nice ship - food and entertainment need serious upgrading

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Royal Princess

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This was our first cruise since the restart after covid. As platinum cruisers with Princess this was not our first trip by any means and we were interested to compare the before and after. Royal was bigger than the ships we had cruised previously so we had some expectations of crowding which wasn't really an issue for the most part. Bar and Atrium entertainers were great but the main ...

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Norwegian Bliss

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Not only were systems down for days on end, many things were misrepresented completely. Not only were there 40 foot swells for over 12 hours, resulting in lots of things missed out on and sicknesses to endure. The boat excursions were not at all as advertised. It was not a large boat with a full-size bar. A tiny boat with no bar. Systems were down so much that there was no ...

Cruise to Alaska was Wonderful but Holland America...Not So Much

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Eurodam

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

I have been on 3 cruises before, two to Alaska and one to Hawaii, all on Princess. The first trip was amazing. The next two cruises showed signs of cutting corners to save money, like no fresh cookies at promenade eatery and over half of the lights burned out in the string that goes from bow to aft, little things. So decided to try a Holland America cruise to Alaska on the Eurodam. There were ...

Radiance of the Seas - First time on this older boat, and it shows

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Radiance of the Seas

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

My first time on a cruise. Booked in April, 2023. Two weeks before we are about to start our one-week land tour, RC had to cancel the 9-1 sail due to "propulsion issues". Then one week before we start our land tour, RC cancelled the 9-8 sail due to the same "propulsion issue". We fly out on 9-9 for the land tour, not knowing AT ALL if there is a 9-15 sail. I think we were notified on 9-13 or 9-14 ...

Exceptionally Long Time in Ports

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Ovation of the Seas

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

I wanted to revisit this ship. The Mid-May 2022 cruise had embarkation and technical difficulties, and Victoria B.C. hadn't approved the use of North Star yet. Those difficulties have been overcome. This time embarkation was a breeze, and everything about the ship seemed to be working well. This beautiful ship just sparkled, and the crew was very friendly and competent. There were ...

Angry and sad staff!

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Carnival Spirit

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

I cannot tell how excited my family was for this cruise! With the exception of a few, my concierge John, our wait staff (Amazing) and the ladies who did our nails and the manager of the spa...Everyone else seemed like they were being held captive! I kept asking "how long have you been on"? It was insane! The activities director Sucked! Seriously, my daughter is 31 and she was bored out of her ...

Review for a Alaska Cruise on National Geographic Venture

2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

I chose this trip specifically because I am passionate about nature, specifically bears. It's one of my dreams to see a spirit bear in person, and that's why this trip stood out to me. Cliff note summary here if you don't want to read the entire review: ship/crew/food was excellent, activities and wildlife viewing was not. Pre-boarding communication wasn't great. We were supposed to receive a ...
