Not the Best Cruise Experience

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Norwegian Gem

dtk1
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

The staff were friendly and helpful. For the most part, waiters were attentive, but the food left a lot to be desired. I’m not a picky eater, but I had trouble finding one entree that appealed to me each evening in the main dining room. The best dessert was usually the sherbet or ice cream choice. I got food poisoning the third day of the cruise as did another guest I talked to. Since the food is ...

Twelve day February 2024 cruise on HAL Rotterdam

Review for a Caribbean - Southern Cruise on Holland America Rotterdam

mindySUE
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Easiest embarking ever. We were on board by 11:30 am sitting at the Lido having lunch. Disembark was super quick and easy thanks to the face scanning technology at the Ft Lauderdale cruise port. This was our 7th cruise on an HAL ship, out of 57 total cruises ( other lines mostly Celebrity, RCL, Oceania). Food varied from being poor to fair in the Lido, Deck 9, to very good in the Main ...

The best vacation I have ever had

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Viking Mars

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was the BEST cruise I have ever been on. The excursions were exciting and informative. I learned so much about the Panama Canal that I never expected. During our days at sea, there was so much to do and so many wonderful people to meet from all over the world. The entertainment was great and there was something to do for everyone. Some of the activities really opened everyone up. We had so ...

Disappointing

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Ruby Princess

DpartanFan
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We felt our experience on Ruby Princess was far less than we had experienced on other ships . Let’s start with the buffet. Although what was there tasted good the selection was like eating at “Old Country Buffet.” Cheaper cuts of meat and less variety. We also felt the entertainment was not of the quality we had experienced before. There was a very limited number of performers. Even though ...

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Celebrity Beyond

Darren Darren 79
10+ Cruises • Age 40s

Sitting in airport now reflecting on my 11 day cruise on the Beyond with my wife. Overall the experience was extremely positive. The ship was state of the art and beautiful. Our indoor stateroom was larger than average and our stateroom attendant Wayne was freindly and exceptional. We enjoyed all of the food and never had a bad meal. We had breakfast in the dining room every breakfast and dinner ...

The Great, Good, and Really Bad

Review for a Caribbean - Southern Cruise on Celebrity Beyond

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We were a group of nine from the Atlanta GA area. First the great. The food generally was outstanding in the main dinning room ( Mediterranean). The service in all areas was also great. A shout out to Neno our head server. The ship was spotless in every regard. Captain Kate was a joy, seemed to be everywhere. The ship itself is a thing of beauty. The good. The ship is too big for ...

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Norwegian Bliss

MrFish
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Even the engineer in our group wasn't completely wowed by the canal, we've cruised other canals, know how they work...other than the history and kinda cool engineering of recycling the water it wasn't that exciting and made us wonder why it was a "bucket list" thing for some. There are other smaller canals around the world that are much more fun to navigate because there are sights along the way, ...

Disappointing

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Norwegian Bliss

agroom
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We picked this specific itinerary, and because Celebrity does not do a FULL transit, in the winter. We did do a Princess Cruise in 2020 but did not like it at all. Having not sailed with NCL since 2018 (previously 6 cruises), (we did 3 Celebrity, and 1 Princess in between), we definitely noticed the cut-backs, and the nickel and diming that NCL has been accused of. Embarkation was a ...

Never again

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Norwegian Bliss

Lisa D G
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Nightmare starting at arrival at Port of Miami and basically sitting (or standing due to lack of chairs) in a human warehouse; given numbers without explanation when we checked in. Little did we know that thousands of people would be waiting for their number to be called because they were yelling that they were running behind in getting people from the previous cruise ship. That's at least what ...

Excellent Cruise

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Norwegian Bliss

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Overall a fantastic cruise with very good itinerary. We stayed in Pullman Hotel outstanding Miami airport the night pre cruise. The hotel has a free shuttle from airport to hotel and a $30 shuttle to the port which was great. The ship was brilliant and very Marc large which was good for not too many people in the same place at the same time. We did have one day when the weather wasn’t very good so ...
