Mostly great cruise

This was the second of back to back cruises I did on the Encore. It was wonderful to have the same cabin for both cruises and not have to move or go off the ship to check back in. I must admit, 28 days on a cruise ship is a bit much, but I had a wonderful time. On this second cruise, it was nice because there were a lot less people on board. I heard that there were only 1900 or so at ...

Pluses: • Ship furnishings, decor, layout, cleanliness. • Theatre entertainment: Kinky Boots show, Beatles Invasion concert, Choir of Man show, Back in the Day Band concert, and comedians Julie Barr, Lucas Bohn, and Scott Wyler all terrific. • Ocean Loop Water Slide: Brief, but nevertheless very exhilarating. • Galaxy Pavilion (virtual reality): Some may cause vertigo, ...

We have taken Norwegian before and once again, it was an excellent cruise!!!! The service we received made us feel like royalty. The crew made every effort to make things perfect. Our room was kept spotless. There were crew members that stood out and truly personify what customer service is. Richard and Jennifer . They both went out of their wat to ensure our meals and service were perfect. We ...

The Crew Makes the Cruise

The ship is huge and beautiful with so much to do that in a 16 day cruise, there were still areas of the ship we just never spent considerable time in. Due to Covid, this cruise sailed well below passenger capacity. For that reason, we felt like we had the run of the ship. The only area that was fully booked, was the Haven. The crew was fantastic, in all areas. This includes the deck crew who ...

This was our 10th cruise on NCL and the Panama Canal cruise was on our bucket list. We had the same cruise scheduled for 2021 but it was cancelled due to COVID. We were excited when NCL started sailing again but became worried when the Omicron wave hit Fortunately our cruise was not cancelled. We would have been devastated. NCL's health and safety protocols were outstanding. We tested at the ...

I had a trip to see the Panama Canal on my bucket list. Never thought I would get to cross it off my list. My wife and I cruised with 3 other couples we have traveled with before. Great company on a great ship. The food was wonderful and the entertainment was amazing. My wife just had surgery 3 weeks before embark time. Due to this we did not get to do the normal shore excursions we enjoy, but ...

I started going on cruises just a few years ago with a trip to Alaska for my 50th birthday with Holland America. Awesome Trip! Sailed with them again and wondered if all cruise lines were similar. So booked Norwegian for my Godchild’s birthday and during the cruise found out they were not the same. Began by spending a few bucks extra to have a balcony room just a few days before the trip. In ...

REVIEW OF "GATEWAY TO SUNSHINE” CRUISE" We just returned from the Oceania “Gateway to Sunshine” sixteen-day cruise that started in Miami on December 21st, 2021. It would be a vast understatement to say our experience with this cruise was disappointing. We booked this cruise in late August primarily because of the impressive number of destinations it offered: Miami; Georgetown, Grand ...

This was the maiden voyage for this crew following the long Covid-induced hiatus and it was clear to us that this ship and crew was not ready. BIg things and small were problematic. We can start with our return flights which were changed without consultation or notification. I discovered the change when I reviewed the embarkation package. Then Oceania insisted that it was a schedule change ...

Having not cruised for almost 2 years we decided to book 2 cruises for the last part of 2021. The first cruise on the celebrity Apex from Athens to Miami went well. We had to wear masks most of the time and tours were mostly on Celebrity controlled tours. All passengers and crew were vaccinated, and they tested us several times during the cruise. The ship made all the schedule ports, and the ...
