Overall enjoyable but disappointing in some respects

Review for Queen Mary 2 (QM2) to Baltic Sea

This was my first time on Cunard since QE2 in 1996 and my expectations based on my previous experience were high. I am a well seasoned cruiser having taken over 25 cruises since the 1990s. First impressions of the exterior of the ship were that it was a little tired and rusty, especially our balcony, although that didn't really bother me. I was very impressed with the interior decor which was ...

Extremely Disappinted by Queens Grill

We selected this short cruise as a good way for us to treat ourselves to Queens Grill and try it out. It was a good job that we did this , as we were extremely disapointed and will never waste our money on the Grills experience again. Starting with embarkation. We don't think Cunard understand the meaning of "Priority" in Priority Embarkation. We were herded into the same queue as everyone ...

Never so Relieved to exit from a cruise

We didn't choose this cruise so much as we were forced into it. Back Story: In 2020, we booked Oceania's Scandinavian Baltic cruise. And then COVID-19. We were "assured" that if cruise would be canceled again, we would receive a a refund. Lie Number 1. As COVID-19 began to ease, we sailed on both Celebrity and Viking waiting for Oceania to re-open. Final Straw, we were booked on the August ...

Review for Star Breeze to Pacific Coastal

Our experience started out really rough at the Port in Vancouver. No one seemed to know what the heck was going on and where to send us. There was a lot of walking involved and a lot of waiting! We arrived two hours after our embarkation time and still had to sit and wait at least 45 minutes to board. We found there to be little to no direction throughout the cruise. When in port they ...

A very much needed vacation

Review for Star Breeze to Pacific Coastal

Before the pandemic, we took many cruises including 10 on Windstar. While we also enjoyed sailing on other cruise lines, we choose Windstar mainly for dining and relaxing. We loved the elegance and size of the Star ships before the stretch. When we heard that the ships were being stretched, we wondered how it would change the ships. Would there be enough space to accommodate more passengers? ...

Did not live up to expectations

This was our first Cunard Cruise, we had high hopes: ship looks stylish, cabin comfortable, embarkation smooth. Drinks are seriously overpriced and service charges do not reflect the level of service delivered. on arrival we had wine but only one glass, no teaspoons for coffee and not enough milk. Food options are very limited compared to P&O and food is rather bland, unimaginative and ...

Review for Silver Shadow to Alaska

Originally, we were booked on a Holland America Line (HAL) Alaska cruise with a Denali land extension. We have sailed HAL twice and enjoyed them. We have sailed Oceania many times also. But, when I spotted a Travelzoo deal for the same itinerary on Silversea Silver Shadow, we rebooked. Basically paid the same price as HAL but had the benefit of Silversea figuring out the air, transfers, all ...

Met or exceeded our high expectations in Queen’s Grill

First time on Cunard after 30+ cruises on other lines (mostly Seabourn, HAL, and Celebrity); this 4 day itinerary fit well with a week-long visit to London. Decided to splurge for a Queen’s Grill (Q5, 8181) aft suite, and felt it was worth every penny. Boarding was efficient, ship was immaculate, staff all around friendly and helpful, fellow shipmates were equally so. Had heard beforehand that ...

Review for Azamara Quest to Europe - British Isles & Western

We picked this cruise because of the itinerary. The ship is old but very beautiful, food was excellent and the service was wonderful. Every crew member did everything possible to make sure our experience was top rated. The ports of call were mostly interesting, especially Bordeaux, Bilbao (the Rioja region) Porto and Lisbon. We prefer the Azamara small ship experience due to the personal ...

Review for SeaDream I to Greece

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Pros- staff. Friendly, helpful. Cons- Food. Average at best. No real menu items relating to the area ( Greece/turkey) being explored. Chili con carne for special chef item for lunch in very warm Greece was a good example. None of the food was beyond average. All frozen so fish came out tough and tasteless etc Wines were primarily Italian and Spanish. Again simply introducing local wines as ...
