MSC doesn't live up to expectations.

Let me preface my critique by saying, we are seasoned cruisers that take a cruise every Christmas or New Year. We booked our Christmas cruise in June. We were so looking forward to cruising on MSC. What a ...

2nd time on the Epic. New Years cruise relatively decent

So this was my 2nd time on the Norwegian Epic. Sadly to say, I really don't recall too much of Epic the 1st time I took it as my experiences were marred by a bad sunburn at the beach. Basically, this time was me ...

Fair; Overall Disappointed

The cruise was ok, but three main critics of the ship and our experience: 1) Not enough space - It is a huge ship, but the proportion of people to features such as pools, slides, hot tubs, sun deck space, etc... is ...

Carnival Ecstasy isn't what it used to be.

The Ecstasy is an older ship, even though it had a recent upgrade with painting and carpeting changes. But it is old. Nothing in the cabin lavatory works correctly. toilet does not clear everything, Sink lights are ...
