Tired, cheap booze cruise on a cross channel ferry disguised as a cruise ship with the worst food possible

Review for Marella Explorer to Europe - Western Mediterranean

I have been with marella a few times. Never glamorous but used to be functional and efficient. Not now. The food in the main restaurants would appear to have come from a 1970’s prison ship and we had mild food poisoning after 2 nights. I know they are cost cutting but the cooking was amazingly bad. Maybe the worst I have ever seen in a commercial setting. The deep fried long hair in the calamari ...

Review for Azamara Onward to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

I sailed on the January 5, 2023 12 night Caribbean voyage from Miami. This was my 4th cruise on Azamara, the most recent being in July 2022 (Journey), December 2019 (Quest) and before that a 2008 voyage on Quest when the line was in its infancy. My most recent experience left me disappointed in quality of both food and entertainment, and what I consider to be a poorly managed ship that is still ...

We booked this cruise to the Canaries/Spain/Gibraltar and Madeira relatively last minute and paid the extra to get a Penthouse Suite at the front of the ship which came with additional perks. Upgrading was the best decision we made and I also paid extra for the Free at Sea Plus package.The ship appeared to be about 75% full so rarely felt overcrowded and you could quite easily get a seat in the ...

Chose this cruise as a quick getaway with my father. The ship itself is beautiful and a testament to great ship design. It’s not the most modern ship but internally in decent shape, cabins nice and well appointed if not they do lack electrical outlets and other modern touches. As per other reviews, boarding was an odd affair with people held I. The terminal and boarded by seat row. Terminal ...

Great vessel, poor cruiser experience, as usual!

Review for MSC Bellissima to Europe - Western Mediterranean

MSC was the only cruise line sailing at this time of year in the Mediterranean, so this is what I had to choose. All my previous MSC sailings were bad, and I had said never again MSC.... Well, never never again. Briefly - ship itself can't be faulted, maybe too much trust in a vessel winning the cruiser. Not so. Officers were non-existent the entire cruise except one brief (5-10 min) appearance ...

First time travelling with MSC and will most likely be the last unless there are changes. Let's start with the positives, the ship looks great, it's very clean and the majority of the staff are lovely even when they have to deal with a lot of rude customers! The paid 2 circus shows on board are worth the money but why do we have to pay for this? BBC1/BBC2/ITV on the cabin TV was a nice ...

So cheap cruising has become like a trip to Benidorm on P&O The ship is dated. Understaffed and lacking the glitz and glamour we have experienced on other ships. Our toilet flooded on the first night and we had flushing issues for 2 weeks so did our neighbouring rooms The Buffet closed too early, some days we missed lunch due to trip return times . Buffet often closed 2.30 The App for ...

First Class Trip of a Lifetime

Review for Viking Venus to Mediterranean

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The trip was chosen due to first class nature of the ship, the excursions, and the location. From the moment we boarded until we disembarked, it was an amazing trip full of adventure, new sites, some of the best tour guides and experienced and fabulous ship personnel. The cruise director was enthusiastic and knowledge and wanted everyone to have a great time. The restaurants were top notch and ...

This was our first Viking Ocean cruise. It will not be our last. The ship is beautiful. The amenities are spectacular from the plethora of areas to just take it easy to the spa. And all with no kids and no pressure to purchase anything else. The Chef's Table restaurant has awesome service and awesome food. We got the wine pairings with the meal and it was a 5 star experience. We also tried ...

Viking cruise is just like their advertising state, its a thinking man's cruise not a drinking man's. There is always interesting lecture regarding the history of your next port as well as the interesting people in the region. All the included tours are great as well as any of the added tours. The local tour guide are knowledgeable and make their tour interesting and they tend to include some ...
