Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Norwegian Encore

6-10 Cruises • Age 37s

First time and last time with Norwegian. Thought they were top tier but ended up being the bottom of the barrel in cruise lines. They charge customers for water and have restaurants that are called speciality dining that they charge you to eat at. The menus are the practically the same from the 3 restaurants that are included. Nothing is ALL Inclusive with this cruise line. They quality of the ...

Disappointing (Seems to be the new NCL theme)

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Norwegian Encore

NGL No More
10+ Cruises • Age 43s

Echoing the disappointment of others here. Today is the last full day of our cruise. Since I have Wi-Fi for a very brief moment, I thought I would jot down a few thoughts for anyone contemplating this line. In no particular order: Purchased the premium (streaming video Wi-Fi), however it barely functions enough to allow for reading newspaper apps. There are times where the internet ...

Great cruise overall

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Norwegian Pearl

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

Went on the eleven night cruise out of Miami on the Pearl. This was the longest cruise we had ever been on but it went by fast and was never monotonous. We had an inside cabin… (personally would avoid this floor as it’s under the kitchens and dining area and was pretty noisy.) Food was amazing on buffet and main dinging room Summer Palace. Service was top notch as well although I missed the ...

Definite decline in service

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Viking Sea

10+ Cruises • Age 71s

I love Viking and I love the amenities of their ocean ships. This was my 3rd ocean cruise and I was disappointed in the decline of service in the restaurant, bars, and tea room. Servers either didn’t take my order except after several requests or took my order and never returned or brought only a partial order. I was never asked if I wanted a cocktail in the pool area or lounge where drink ...

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Marella Voyager

2-5 Cruises • Age 73s

Just back from our Caribbean cruise, which we mostly enjoyed. I did this cruise in 2020 on Explorer 2, which I would say was slightly better than Voyager, mainly because of the food set up. I understand that the object of serving people in the Kitchens is to avoid waste, but I still observed lots of half finished plates being left, so they need to go back to self serving buffet, which would avoid ...

Great ship, but the food lets it down

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Arvia

6-10 Cruises • Age 63s

This was our 6th cruise and 6th cruise line. We booked it because the ship (Arvia) was new (and large), but primarily because the itinerary visited a few places we had not been to before. Overall I would rate this as 3.5 out of 5. The itinerary was 14 days from Bridgetown, Barbados visiting Road Town, Tortola BVI La Romana, Dominican Republic Philipsburg, St. Maarten St. John’s, ...

Great ship shame about the clientele

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Arvia

Grimsby Mariner
10+ Cruises • Age 59s

Just returned from the latest two week booze cruise around the Caribbean. Arvia is a magnificent ship and a cut above Iona, but it is a great tragedy that it is playing host to the type of people who should not be within a continent of it. As a result it is already showing signs of wear - with P&O infamous for cutting costs to the bone any non-essential system on the ship that breaks is ignored. ...

Worst Coffee at Sea -- RCL Cost cutting is very evident. Not the old Silversea

Review for a Canada & New England Cruise on Silver Shadow

10+ Cruises • Age 73s

There are no bad cruises, for us they are adequate to excellent. However, I am writing this review while drinking what is perhaps the worst coffee at Sea on Silver Shadow. The saga of the bad coffee at sea pretty much sums up the cruise experience. This is our 4th Silversea cruise and we generally like a small ship experience. Besides SS we have cruised on Crystal, Oceania, Seabourn and Regent. ...

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Explora I

10+ Cruises • Age 52s

First time on Explora Journeys and this voyage was at about 50% occupancy with 450 passengers and 500 crew. Embarkation: Arrival times for check in were a bit contradictory between boarding paperwork and app. We checked out of the Intercontinental at 1030 and caught an Uber over to terminal C for embarkation. We were the only vehicle arriving, at that moment, so porters took our luggage ...

Crystal Better than Ever

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Crystal Serenity

Virginia from Roslyn
10+ Cruises • Age 69s

We have cruised with Crystal 4 times previously and have anxiously awaited its return. We had a cabin with ocean view on deck 7. The cabin was 215 sq feet and was well laid out. There was ample drawer and closet space. The cabin attendant kept the cabin spotless. The food at the main dining room, buffet and specialty restaurants was excellent. The selection of the entrees in the main ...
