Review for Azamara Journey to Europe - Western Mediterranean

A few facts to start with.. Azamara Journey, France Intensive. Barcelona to Nice over seven nights stopping at seven ports. Three tendered ports, the remaining docked. All docked ports were in best berth in that particular port. No requirement for a free bus into town at any location. Perfect seamanship, the Journey arrived and departed exactly on schedule each day. Captains broadcasts kept to ...

We are a family of 6, mom, dad, 19, 17, 6, 3. July 24-31 BCN-BCN We had two cabins 10087 and 10088. Booked flights through NCL with one free flight included per cabin. Since we had two cabins, they actually booked flights for each cabin separately and our family was split up 3 and 3 on separate flight itineraries! I was shocked that they would do this, but when I called (on hold for an ...

A few flaws but wouldn't hesitate to book again

Review for MSC Seaview to Europe - Western Mediterranean

Embarkation was problematic and stressful with ground staff unwilling to let us check in because of an alleged problem with a passport (the problem was non-existent and was finally cleared up by immigration but not before we'd been forced to stand to one side of the queue for 30 mins in 35°C heat). Once on board, however, all was forgiven. All the glitter and glam you'd expect from MSC. Pools and ...

Even though this is the oldest of the EDGE class ships it is my favourite. I think it must be the staff on the EDGE make all the difference. . Not much to add to my last review of the EDGE, apart from.... If you are not happy with anything on the ship from dining to entertainment don't moan about it, or accept it, do something about it. In nearly all circumstances, the staff on the ship ...

Vibration could have been a problem had we not been moved

Review for Seven Seas Explorer to Europe - Western Mediterranean

On our first evening in suite 844 the vibration was dreadful. The entire bathroom vibrated, as did the bedroom. Worst of all was the bed vibrating. Our entire bodies shook. It was distressing and made us both feel almost sick. First thing in the morning my husband reported the matter, but somehow it was not seen as a complaint! After three visits to reception, we eventually got a member of ...

When searching for my third cruise and having experienced more premium offerings, i discovered this 10 day western Medi itinerary. Immediate concerns were that i heard MSC was an average cruise line, in the same club as RCL and Carnival. So what did i thought? Ok, we will have the ports. The food, staff, ship will be secondary. Completely wrong idea. Lets review by items: Ship: recently ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

So I have cruised throughout my childhood and I have been on various cruises in the last 8 years but this was my first time with RC. Having watched the slick adverts for the biggest/newest boat my kids wanted to go on and do the waterslides/ice skating/ laser tag etc. We booked 5 months before sailing and there was only a handful of cabins left so we had a very limited choice and had a ...

Review for Marella Discovery 2 to Europe - Western Mediterranean

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

we have been on about 14 cruises with Thompson/Marella(and other cruises) so id like to think what I write is a fair opinion. Getting on/off ship, bit of a wait to get on due to proof of Covid vaccination's/antigen result etc. but ok. Balcony cabin, immaculate as usual and always cleaned and made up . Food, good quality but a noticeable lack of choice from previous ...

The good…virtually any cruise is enjoyable. this was no exception. the ports we visited were wonderful. the crew added positive vibes to our adventure. every one was cheerful and friendly. a couple of bartenders, anna and salvador deserve particular mention. our room steward, darryl was also first rate. The bad…ok, the food wasn’t bad. are golden corral or applebee’s bad? no, but it’s ...

We just got off a 7 night W Med cruise in and out of Civitavecchia. NCL was less than up-front about the availability of amenities onboard due to maintenance and staff shortages. In hindsight, they were dishonest. 3 days after our trip, the only email from NCL is a copy of our bill, no thank you, no follow-up. During our entire cruise both Spice H2O and the sports complex were closed due to ...
