Our First Cruise Ever, and Probably our Last

Review for MSC Splendida to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Today we’re on a cruise for the first time, but this is been such a poor experience I wonder why people do it at all. We were excited and read everything from the cruise company, many reviews and watched videos from cruisenews, Emma, and Gary. Before this, I was thinking hey - we can cruise to the Arctic circle or go transatlantic instead of flying, but now I’d really have to think. What sort of ...

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

We chose this cruise as all passengers needed to be from the UK, fully vaccinated and have passed a PCR test within 3 days of travel. This gave confidence that it would actually be safer to go cruising than stroll around the local shopping centre (where masks appear to have been abandoned). Another factor for this cruise was that it wouldn't be full. In fact, there were less than 1,000 ...

The safest i have felt for over a year . Ship was only 50% full due to rules , felt like the ship feels when you stay on board when in a port of call. Always found a lounger ,seat , we had a table on our own as everyone did . SO good we booked again ,the only chance of feeling like your on a top grade cruise. Food was great crew were great. So logistics as it can be a bit complicated , The ...

We had been receiving mailers from American Cruise line for years and chose them for our return to cruising after a hiatus due to Covid. We were promised the ship would be no more than 80% occupancy due to Covid. This was not the case as several other passengers commented the ship was at 100% of capacity. Our next problem arose at the Red Lion hotel in Portland. We had been informed ...

Review for Celebrity Summit to Caribbean - All

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Celebrity and especially the Summit were amazingly happy to see us come on board; members of the team were cheering, clapping and yelling "welcome back" as we stepped onboard. And, that level of enthusiasm and service continued throughout the cruise. From the cleaner to the captain, all expressed appreciation for setting sail again. There were only 410 guests aboard a ship that can handle ...

Review for Crystal Serenity to Bahamas

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We thought a summer cruise in the Bahamas would be hot and stormy but we lucked out with unseasonably dry weather, and the trade winds kept the temperature pleasant at least in the mornings and evenings. This was our first cruise on a luxury line and on a ship of this size. We usually cruise on Celebrity or sometimes Holland-America on ships that are twice the size of this 1,000-passenger ...

Review for Crystal Serenity to Bahamas

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this cruise because it was the first one able to sail. Getting on the ship took a while, but once we got on, it was wonderful! This was a fully vaccinated ship so nobody had to wear a mask on board except the employees. The only bar you could sit around was in Palm Court. The seats around the bars were open, however. To get on the ship we met at the Baja Mar convention center where we ...

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Ship very small by today’s standards and not kept up. Old and outdated in decor and maintenance. Upholstery outdated and in need of repairs. Ship looks 20 years older than 2003 when it was launched. Shows the wear and tear throughout the ship. They only had 18 months to get it ready. This was the first cruise post covid. ATM in casino broke the entire cruise. Only way to get cash on the ship is ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Anxious to get back on a ship we accepted the suggestion to try Crystals' first post pandemic cruise on the Serenity in the Bahamas sailing July 3rd. Clearly this was a mistake on our part as neither they nor the Bahamas were ready for paying customers. Our 7 day cruise wound up having 5 sea days as ports were cancelled due to virus outbreaks on shore. The two islands we did access required a 2 ...
