Beautiful places with, at times, a struggling ship

Review for Norwegian Epic to Europe - Western Mediterranean

We consider ourselves as easily pleased and fair - so here goes The boarding at Civitavecchia (Rome) was seamless at our allocated time. We had all our paper work ready and check-in complete, with COVID test etc, which I think helped as there were plenty of folk sitting around waiting. If you do decide to get a test there, yes, as advertised, it will cost $65. There were places apparently in ...

NCL CASH EXTRACTION

Never been with NCL before and probably won't cruise with them again. Everything they do board is about cash extraction. They charge a fee for for buying from their shops, for the pleasure of serving you. Gambling is the main feature on the ship, lots and lots of tables. Although we had a drinks package, bottled water was not included, for a litre of water $6.00 + 20% SC. There was no ...

Worst cruise of our 50+ cruises so far!

We obviously enjoy cruising and expect high standards, this was the worst we've encountered. Positives: 1. Mostly great service apart from arrogant, poorly communicating Guest Services. 2. Really good premium beverage drinks. 3. Excellent Fusion speciality restaurant. Negatives: 1. Main dining room and buffet food was, overall, terrible. Bland, tasteless, poorly presented, ...

1.2 Billion Dollars worth of Incompetence

It's probably going to be difficult to describe the full extend of our disappointment with this cruise, but I'll give it my best try, with as much detail as possible so that you can appreciate why we were so disappointed. Embarkation Got on after spending an endless time waiting for an antigen test (which later showed up on the invoice as a $65 pp charge, when it doesn't even cost half ...

Decided to take our grown children on there first cruise. Ages 30 and 25. My husband and I have sailed several times on the Explorer. We had given the kids a heads up they would be the youngest adults traveling. This experience was going to be about family time, and giving them a taste of Italy, Spain,France and Croatia. We are all vaccinated but still had to test prior to boarding. In ...

2 Years later than originally planned but so worth the wait. I would have given my review 5 stars but we were on a 17 night back to back cruise and the first week was not quite as expected. This was due to 2 large corporate American groups onboard - not what I was expecting on a Regent Cruise, and from what I can gather is not normal for Regent? It did not have the feel of a holiday cruise ...

Seemed good value at time and I hadn't cruised with Norwegian before. No queues etc at gatwick - brill! Smooth on time flight - brill! arrived Barcelona immigration arrivals - packed to bursting point with thousands of passengers - some from the USA - and no perceivable queue movement. Hot, stuffy, no toilets or water. After realisation that more staff an better organisation required some more ...

Family with 2 kids (10+12), Fantastica cabin category. The ship had only 50% utilization, but the buffet-restaurants were absolut full! Too many people, bad service, food was below average. Dinner was nice, food was ok, on the service-managment they could also work more! We expected much more than this for the price… Embarkation was well done organized: from arriving to arriving ...

Ridiculous Covid testing procedure before boarding created a strong negative impression…

The cruise was absolutely excellent in every way. The ship is beautiful and the staff is wonderful. However the testing requirement pre-boarding was a total mess. First of all MSC hadn’t made it clear that it was necessary to bring a negative Covid test (not older than 48 hours) to the check-in desk. So on arrival to the port we were sent to a nearby pharmacy to get our test certificate. ...
