Unhappy with Management, path was blocked with hazards, food hasn't been changed

Review for Carnival Splendor to Australia & New Zealand

The embarkation was fast. The main lobby was very small, noisy and crowded. Their website says they use USD so I selected cash for my onboard account (I have only AUD bank card). I called hotline and they told me they use AUD, but I needed to get on board soon. So took 25 minutes to wait for guest service staff to fix my account (linked to AUD bank card ). I chose King bed for my dad online 2 days ...

Disappointing

Chose this cruise because of the destination. Apart from the ship being very tired, the crew are not as accommodating as previous cruises, this was echoed by several other guests. The room attendant assigned to our cabin never turned up when asked for a pair of scissors, the rudeness of bar staff was jawdropping, and we had serviettes thrown on our lap by waiters. There were no shuttles upon our ...

This cruise was selected for the itinerary. It went to all the South Pacific islands that we wanted to visit. We mostly dined at the main dining room. The waiters and food were excellent - could not fault the service. We dined at the Oceanview Café, which is a buffet style, at times and while the selection and quality of food was also excellent, we found it to be far too busy for us and we ...

It was our first boat cruise ever and I have to say I loved it all, yes it was a short trip and we just wanted to see if we will enjoy it and if it was for us. Totally recommended highly. Can't wait for our next boat cruise coming in 2 weeks. I will do it all over again. The food was great, and there was plenty to pick from. Entertainment was amazing, and the boat layout was beautiful. Cabins were ...

The rust hanging from the anchor wells tell the story. THE GOOD: ages 2-17 had a great time. The well supervised kids club was a terrific way to please the children 2-17 years The staff was polite and efficient. The all day self serve pizza and ice cream. The movies and the pool were also much enjoyed by them as was the laser light energetic sensational shows at night. THE BAD: ...

We chose this cruise as we have previously sailed on Carnival, Princess and P&O. Were told that Royal Caribbean was a huge step up from the others?? Well what utter misinformation we were given!! It started and ended exceptionally well with embarkation and disembarkation an absolute breeze given the amount of passengers. The only other two positives were the high quality of the cabins and the ...

Enjoyed the 14 day cruise very much; especially, the pre-trip to the Outback through Viking

We chose this cruise due to the itinerary for Australia, including Tasmania and New Zealand. The crew was excellent and catered to each person's needs. Even though the cruise before us did not go as planned, not once did any of the crew discuss the problems that were encountered. Very professional! Our cruise went very smoothly and without a hitch. This is only our 2nd Viking cruise, but ...

Misleading itinerary

Review for Azamara Quest to Australia & New Zealand

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Travelled from New York to have an intensive New Zealand cruise and to experience what some would call the 8th wonder of the world in cruising Milford Sound. Instead azamarra decided to save money and not follow the New Zealand regulations which were issued on Oct 2022 -3 months before the sailing date- to get its ship hull properly inspected and cleaned. They knew in advance that their failure ...

Silver Muse modifies itinerary to deal with unseasonable weather conditions and comes out a winner!

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We have waited over three years for this vacation to New Zealand and Australia. Our expectations were not as high as in the past due to global post pandemic supply chain issues, global personnel shortages, the restart of the Silver Muse only one month earlier. We also had suffered through three cancellations of this trip due to the pandemic and the closing of New Zealand and Australia. While ...

We choose this ship because we were under the impression that it had been newly renovated and the itinerary it was our first Carnival Cruise, been on quite a few cruises before, but really couldn’t see where it had been renovated, rooms very dated and old looking we thought we would spoil ourselves and get a Suite 7312 what a mistake the room was a lot bigger but the lounge was converted to a ...
