A Very Unhappy Experience
"The Maiden Voyage of "The most luxurious ship ever built" should be so exiting and I was very exited. I have travelled with Regent many times and have always been more than happy with the ship and the service,..."Read More

A lot of hype, gimmicks and up-charges

Review for Celebrity Edge to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

We researched and studied for months before booking our honeymoon on the edge. Then we saved for 2 years to be able to do all the things we saw and believed off the marketing. Overall the ship was nice, crew was professional, and we could see the vision...but it all lacked execution. We are young by cruising standards, we took advantage of all the techy stuff and did all the paperwork online ...

I don't understand why people are so afraid of cruises. Cruise ships are probably the safest places in the world. I wish all services ashore were so professional in terms of Covid prevention. Before boarding the ship, we had to do two tests, a PCR test in our country and a swab test at the terminal. Body temperature was measured before entering the terminal and on board the ship every day ...

First Mediterranean cruise, I've been on 10 total cruises. Service was great staff was friendly, restaurant staff was friendly and entertaining and was really involved in keeping our young children smiling. Food was ...ok... nothing special, still was better than you'd get at the drive thru. This was right at the beginning of COVID-19 in Italy, MSC was quick to respond on board and a clean ship ...

I simply booked the cruise to Croatia because it was one of the only possible options to go on a cruise and there was no single supplement. Being Belgian the French language was not a problem at all . In view of the actual pandemic great care was given to the medical aspect , passengers had to send quite a long and detailled questionnaire , partly to be filled in by your own GP. Also a covid test ...

Review for Norwegian Spirit to Mediterranean

The Spirit appealed to me in many respects. It is small, comfy and has many aspects of a traditional ocean liner rather than a floating resort. The crew was a delight. I sailed on her in 2016 and 2018 prior to her 100 million dollar refit. I feared for her future as a smaller and older ship and was delighted to learn that Norwegian had invested a huge sum to upgrade her and reconfigure her as ...

We are belgian frequent cruisers and we couldn't wait any longer to cruise again. So we did. After a max 72 hours pre cruise covid19 test at home and a new quick covid19 test in Genoa (50 min) it was time for boarding. Embarkation was really quick after a negative test (but we had to stay in numberd groups of app.25 guests) No rush, because there were only app. 750 !!! guests on board, ...

We did a week on Grandiosa from Genoa to Malta and back on 25/10. It was great, we felt really safe and looked after. We covid tested 3 days before departure at home then again on the day of departure (MSC's test in port) and again 3 days before disembarking. Gel was everywhere as were good handwashing stations which we were made to use before all meals. We wore masks everywhere except at ...

Very Poor Service Generally, Especially When Sun Bathing on Decks & Small Cabin

Small Cabin, Very Poor Service Generally, Especially When Sun Bathing on Decks and they Certainly want to Pack you in.!! High Pressure Selling their Full Drinks package, which is okay but due to this take up, or maybe it's a standard thing on MSC cruises but when Sun bathing on deck every other cruises we been on there was constant flow of waiters coming around asking if you'd like a drink from ...

Uncomfortable Non Smoking ship, inhospitable staff

MSC is my preferred cruise line but I was let down by this ship and some of the staff. I enjoy a smoke with my cocktails and also a chair to sit on but there is very limited smoking areas and sitting areas on this ship. On the back deck the chairs and tables were available to sit on about 2 or 3 hours the entire cruise. They had them stacked in the corner. The only smoking area inside the ...

Hi folks, two weeks ago i went for my first cruise after the corona-break. The german-market-focussed cruise line TUI cruises offers 7-night cruises from Heraklion(Crete) to Piraeus and Corfu. As the price for these cruises are very attractive for solo travellers i could not resist. Due to the current Covid-19 situation there were some changes in the usual processes. First of all it was ...
