Never again

Review for Odyssey of the Seas to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

Seemed like the whole time they were pushing to sell products(mostly jewelry). Took time out of the excursions/activities to sell us products even being pushy putting us in a closed rooms that felt like abduction. Gave no really time at all for the historical sites paid for. Regular dinning was bland and had multiple problems with main dinning. Ship activities having hidden prices till you show ...

This was my first RCI cruise. I chose it for its itinerary. The cruise started from Vienna/Ravenna, and, let me be clear, Ravenna is an expensive and inconvenient place to start a cruise. I had wanted to revisit Venice for a few days prior to the cruise, and very early on, I wrote to RCI inquiring about transfers to Ravenna from downtown Venice. I heard nothing. I called them, still almost 8 weeks ...

Geared toward Italian/European cruisers, poor entertainment

Pros: Low price/good value, most staff, especially cabin steward and bar staff, itinerary. Cons: Entertainment was poor, buffet food was poor and very odd choices, customer service staff. Entire cruise geared toward Europeans. Specifics: Room: we had 2 balcony cabins and 1 inside cabin for my family members- the inside cabin was bigger than the balconies. No matter, as Marta, our ...

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and we had two amazing cruises on marella discovery pre COVID. One of the things we loved on discovery was the amazing shows in the theatre every evening, the "shows" on Explorer were dismal, every night there was six very average singers attempting to put on a show on an empty stage. People were leaving the theatre every night, it was embarrassing ...

we had a great trip, enjoyed Italy, the Greek islands and turkey. got to spend three days in Rome before cruise, amazing sites the Vatican is a must in my opinion. we did the private before open to public tour with breakfast in the pine cone courtyard. Time well spent before the crowds! we used Rome Chauffeur from airport to Double Tree, to Port and back to airport, they were awesome, on time all ...

A sister ship of the Equinox which I also cruised a few years ago, I has excited to revisit this class of ship. We were on the 11 night Med cruise out of Rome to Sicily, Greece, Turkey and returning to Rome. Very excited as it was our first Med cruise and never been to turkey or Greece before. The Ship is around 10 years old and has not had a major refurb yet (but is due to soon). Overall ...

We initially booked the cruise for 2020 but finally were able to go on the cruise 3/7/2022. We enjoyed it! We chose this cruise because we wanted to experience a Mediterranean cruise and visit the spesific ports. Embarking was very efficient, check in was great, staff were friendly. Disembarking at the ports was not too much of a hassle. We could not go to Mykonos due to weather but a alternative ...

While the itinerary for this cruise is top notch, there is a lot that is really lacking luster. Everywhere you look on this ship, there is wear and tear - the carpets, the railings, the windows. It's a combination of cleaning (They have not been as diligent about cleaning the exterior windows it seems) and maintenance (fresh coats of paint needed everywhere). It's a weird thing to note but they ...

The cabin are very nice. So big pluss for that. Also check in was smoothe. The crew try to push a lot on you, even waiter (they get extra from it) like drinking package or spa or what ever. Its not any fun activity as NCL or RC. Like learning fun stuff, or like quiz in pub, bingo, chess, or nice gatherings like gin tasting or something. Just like try 5 most famous cheap gin for 20 euro. And the ...

We chose this cruise as we had visited and enjoyed several of these ports before and needed a sunny holiday. Overall we were happpy with the cruise even though the weather was very hot for the time of year. i would recommend paying the supplement for the drinks package as the daily bottle of water came in very handy and the premium wines and spirits were woth the extra charge. The excursions ...
