Pretty Old and Smelly

Review for Carnival Conquest to Bahamas

6-10 Cruises • Age 30s

Sooo I really wanted to go on an RCL cruise, but my mother picked Carnival for our mini Mother/Daughter getaway. Both had an identical itinerary option for a short weekend trip to Nassau but Carnival was a lot cheaper. I really wish we would have shelled out the extra $100 per person for RCL. (Our suite on Carnival was $100 less than a standard balcony would have been on RCL) >>>> I'll start ...

My family choose this cruise line because it was for 12 days and the 7 ports of calls appealed to us. This was our 7th cruise so we were pretty familiar with how the cruise lines operated in general. The first issue I noticed was the odour in our stateroom the minute we were able to enter. I didn’t think much of it because I have a highly sensitive sense of smell. The odour carried into most ...

Unable to get excursion refund and other problems

Review for MSC Meraviglia to Bahamas

This is a 3 night getaway, Thursday thru Sunday. On Thursday night we got our excursion tickets. You cannot choose a time. It is based on when you sign up. Sign up early and you get the earliest time, like it or not. They have a 48 hour cancellation policy, which is useless on this trip. Because of this we could not get our 8 am waverunner cancelled. Also, we took the boat ride around the island. ...

This was my second MSC cruise (Divina was first), and my 17th cruise overall. The ship is stunning, very modern, clean, and in great condition. The service left a bad taste in my mouth overall, the lines for the bars were the worst I’ve seen in any of my cruises, and the lack of communication about key things you need to know are the biggest issues. I will get into those areas as I review further. ...

Long lines and way understaffed

The Cruise ship is beautiful! They were significantly understaffed for the amount of people on the ship. Took and average of 45 minutes to get a drink at any bar and 1 hour to 1 hour 20 minutes on the island. Some of the bartenders also would favor young women and several guests noticed this and were talking about this across the ship. The food was okay. The island is absolutely beautiful and ...

Lower Quality of services

We have sailed on MSC three times and find that the quality of the services suffering. The MSC Meraviglia is a beautiful vessel and we had beautiful cruise. But the quality of the food services in the main dining room was a big let down. The cruise line has simplified their menu to lower quality meals. Those specialty menu items we used to get, now cost extra to order. It looks as though MSC has ...

Solid trip for first time cruisers with toddler

Review for Liberty of the Seas to Bahamas

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

We were a couple with a young kid (18 months) and traveled with BIL’s family. We chose this cruise because we wanted our toddler to have access to some pools (there’s a small baby splash zone onboard that allows swim diapers) and BIL’s family wanted some of the fun amenities on royal ships. Day 1 Embarkation was smooth. We happened to arrive earlier than our set time but they took us anyway ...

Flawless first cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

This was our first cruise and we booked it sort of at the last minute because it was cheap and some friends were going. We were told it was a weird itinerary - NYC to Bermuda, just a half day in Bermuda, then on to Nassau, Great Stirrup Cay and a long day in Port Canaveral (7 am to 1 am). We were also told it would be cold in Bermuda and the seas would be rough in January. But everything turned ...

Let me start off by saying that the ship is SPECTACULAR , very modern and up to date with the latest technology. The design of the public spaces is also very nice, lots of bling, with the crystal steps in the main atrium. Chose this cruise for two reasons, the first was a very good price for the Aurea level balcony and the second was to try out MSC for myself. Checking in at Port Canaveral ...

Our first time sailing on MSC. We have sailed on over 30 cruises and this is the most gorgeous, beautiful ship we have ever sailed on. The embark was very easy, 20 minutes from parking lot to having a drink. The main shopping areas is beautiful you will think you are in Italy, also the ceiling changes hourly (see pictures) just gorgeous. The buffet area has outdoor sitting area on the AFT of the ...
