Never again with Princess!!

Review for Diamond Princess to Mexican Riviera

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

I typically cruise with Celebrity and enjoy it, but saw this cruise with Princess out of San Diego and decided to give them a try, since I have heard that their service is comparable to Celebrity in many ways. With that said, I could not be more underwhelmed with this experience, especially after reading so many positive reviews about Princess and this ship prior to embarking on my ...

Previous customer-and 5th cruiser with Carnival. This was by far the worst cruise we have ever taken. The many changes Carnival has made really makes a BIiG negative difference. Listed below: Food - less than mediocre in the dinning room. Meat is tuff. Portions are much smaller (not that it made a difference in the taste. Options are not child friendly. Stick with the outside offerings ...

The embarkation was fast. The main lobby was very small, noisy and crowded. Their website says they use USD so I selected cash for my onboard account (I have only AUD bank card). I called hotline and they told me they use AUD, but I needed to get on board soon. So took 25 minutes to wait for guest service staff to fix my account (linked to AUD bank card ). I chose King bed for my dad online 2 days ...

First, the good things. My wife and I chose this cruise as a winter getaway. We generally prefer 7 day cruises but a 5 day trip departing from New Orleans looked like a good vacation. In addition we decided to stay in an oceanview cabin and it was a good value. The Valor staff were all hard working and courteous. Every employee we encountered did the best they could in their role to serve ...

Going back to Fantasy- Crew working harder to overcome a poorly designed ship resulting in low cast member morale

Review for Disney Wish to Bahamas

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

This is our 8th Disney Cruise. Our children who are now teenagers and young adults have grown up on DCL. We have sailed on all of the ships, with the Fantasy being our favorite. Bottomline up front: The ship is poorly designed. Too many times people are forced to bottleneck at certain places. Restaurants are awkwardly split in two. The interior design has no unifying theme. It looks like ...

Review for Carnival Conquest to Bahamas

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

After many years since my last cruise, my new husband and I decided it was time for him to experience his first cruise. We chose the Conquest because the itinerary fit our schedule. We also chose the conquest for it's size, and the deal we got on this sailing. We were booked for an Ocean Suite, but the upgrade fairy put us in a Grand Suite. We took advantage of the perks that come with a ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our first cruise and the experience was more than expected. Everything was so easy, from boarding to disembarkation. I don’t even know where to begin. Zack the cruise director was awesome (funny, witty, welcoming)….he totally needs his own show! Lady Ocean (Fun Squad member) treated everyone like they were part of HER family! Absolutely loved her. The cleanliness of this ship was ...

Friends Told Me I Would Never Go Back to Carnival: WRONG!

I am a Carnival Gold member who loves to cruise. Had it not been for COVID, we would platinum. A number of friends told us that we had to try Royal Caribbean (RC). They promised we would never go back to Carnival. Well, they were wrong. The first issue we had was having our first port canceled. We were supposed to go to Progresso on our first stop. Royal Caribbean canceled the stop claiming the ...

My eighth and worst cruise yet. Getting off the Breakaway last May I was so excited to cruise this itinerary. Let’s start, since when did we start adding lines for bar service? Everything is a line; over an hour of standing in lines to get a beverage on the pool deck is not relaxing. The worst part is watching the General Manager of the ship watch everyone waiting in an hour-plus line, ...

Review for Voyager of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

I booked this ship because of the itinerary. It was an island hopping cruise to the Southern Caribbean. Overall, my family and I had a good time but there are definitely areas for improvement on this ship. One of our main complaints is that we did my time dining for the MDR. We had reservations every night and still had to wait in line for at least 30-45 minutes most nights that we ate there. ...
