Only good thing was the cruise director, "Donkey"

We chose this cruise because we had never been to the ABC Islands. We got a really good price. The food was nothing to write home about. It was pretty well organized. Our cabin was not fully cleaned when we got there. Debarkation process took a long time. We had to wait in lines a long time. The cruise director, Donkey, was fabulous. He wants to go to Alaska but he was told he was too high energy ...

Poorest Cruise Ever

My cruise on Explorer of the Seas on April 30, 2022 was without a doubt the worst cruise experience I have ever endured, and I have been cruising for over 30 years and I have never experienced anything quite like it. The lack of staff and poor training of the existing staff was very apparent. I was not listed for Early Dining at 5:30 as I requested and was granted during the booking ...

This was DH and I first cruise post-restart and we were ecstatic to be back onboard a ship. The Explorer was in great condition considering her age. We did the Royal Up program and went from an inside cabin on deck 8 to Panoramic Ocean View on deck 12. We absolutely loved our cabin. We overlooked the peek-a-boo bridge and had floor to ceiling windows. Entertainment was a bit lacking, but we had ...

Don't know where to start. The food was horrible,and I don't mean bad, it was horrible. Most of the time it was cold and the selection was just as bad...the hot tubs were warm,not hot just warm. My bath water is warmer that the hot tubs. The drink selection was terrible, they had lemonade and tea. The tea tasted stale. The lemonade was so tart that my face puckered up and I looked like a fish... ...

Entertainment was poor. They had only one good singer, dancers only performed the first night. Then they had Spanish Music the following 2-3 shows, singers only. Then a vintage pop that was terrible and I think you get the point. Your Cruise Director is “Donkey” and did he live out his name and reputation! Worst cruise Director EVER!!! During your dinner, expect serious delays. Plan on a ...

This is the first negative review I have ever posted on this site. Our cruise on the Oceania Marina from Miami first week in March 2022 was as rough sea for 3 days on our way to Curacao and coming back to Miami. I discussed this with some employees on the ship. They were told that because there were only less than 400 passengers(normal 1,200 passengers), they did not use the Stabilizers because ...

This was an unusual cruise in that it was originally slated to be on a much smaller ship, the Sirena and was moved to the Marina along with an itinerary change. Marina can accommodate 1200 passengers. This sailing there were 406 passengers with a crew of approx. 730 so the staff to passenger ratio was very high and passengers enjoyed the roominess aboard. This is our fourth time sailing on ...

As Platinum members being on 15 previous Carnival Cruise this was the most disappointing cruise we have taken with Carnival...The ship itself is gorgeous and very clean and this was our second cruise on the Horizon as we were on its last before Covid hit in March 2020.The 2020 Horizon cruise was excellent in all areas...This cruise was lacking in so so many area's.First of all Food service... Our ...

We chose this cruise on the recommendation of our travel agent. It was nice enough but I must say the food was a terrible disappointment. Thomas Keller's Bistro is a joke. My husband's veal chop was tough and stringy and what was billed on the menu as "Lobster Thermador" was something that never saw a lobster. Someone ought to buy Keller a cookbook. I was served some soupy sauce covering what ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. As I understand it, our cruise was the first of this itinerary to actually make all of its scheduled stops since the Omicron spike. We had no known cases of Covid on the ship our week by staff or cruisers. That was great. Most people followed the masking requirements for the first part of the week but got sick of it later in the week Our room was a suite ...
