WORST Cruise Experience EVER!

Review for Carnival Sunrise to Caribbean - Western

This was my husband's first ever cruise and it was my 5th cruise. This was the worst cruise experience I have ever had and an absolutely terrible experience for my first time cruiser husband. Some of the items on this extensive list may be nitpicky to some, but as one thing after another went wrong or were well below expectations due to previous cruises with Carnival and other cruise lines, we ...

EXCURSION BUYER BEWARE My husband and I were on 6 day western Caribbean Explorer of the Sea cruise that departed from Miami June 5. Overall, nice, good entertainment and hard working room and dining crews. The huge disappointment came from Jamaica Falmouth, where they canceled our excursion of choice to Rose Hall, after an hour of waiting, and offered Go Native excursion instead. By that ...

Background- this was about our 15th cruise on Royal and we are diamond level. It was a husband, wife and 21 yr old daughter cruise. There were lots of disappointments as well as some good times. We are not snobs but we paid a lot of money for this cruise and it wasn't all what we remembered cruising to be like. Overall, any cruise is a good cruise and you have to roll with the punches which we ...

BE WARNED - YOU WILL SPEND YOUR WHOLE CRUISE IN LINE FOR FOOD

I normally would never take the time to go and complain about a cruise but I WISH someone would have warned me about the food situation on this boat. THERE ARE ONLY 2 BUFFET LINES FOR THE ENTIRE BOAT. Granted there are other venues but even these lines are just ABSURD. Twice we just settled on the pay for meals restaurants so we could ACTUALLY EAT. PS The Bonsai Sushi is REALLY GOOD AND WORTH ...

Bad ship, good stops

Not sure why most reviews give decent stars but bad comments, so I’ll be very honest with mine. This was my first cruise with my boyfriend and his parents, who have gone on a similar route with celebrity. We all agree the ship itself is no good, especially if you don’t have enough money. I travel often, am not picky, and like to make the most of any trip, but this cruise was key enough to make a ...

NCL disappointed me

Just did two prior cruises on Celebrity and MSC, and NCL Breakaway was a dissapointment. Only good thing I can say is that the food was pretty good in most restaurants and that only one night we had great service at the Manhattan with Jay Deniso and Mauriel Often. Aside from that, the service and the wait was unbearable. The Garden Cafe should be serving the food as Celebrity was doing. ...

We have traveled on NCL several times over the past several years and they have gotten worse and worse. We started paying for higher level cabins but now the food has gotten to the point where it is like eating at golden corral. We were forced to eat in the main dining room the entire cruise because we could not get reservations for any other dining room since they had the Savor closed for ...

Staff and supply shortages on an 80% Passenger load

This is my fifth cruise with RCL since their restart and by far the one that has been most impacted by COVID; yes, even this late in the ongoing pandemic. Bars ran out of Coca Cola (regular), a number of spirits and most beers and on the final day Bud Lite seemed to be the only one available. Staff was overworked and Izumi was closed except for lunch on 2-3 days. Capacity controls were in ...

Older female sailing solo, I chose this cruise to go to Labadee. I had missed the port earlier in the year due to civil unrest, and chose this particular sailing (6 days) due to the ports and pricing. She also sailed into Falmouth, Jamaica and Perfect Day at Coco Cay. When arriving to the port, it was a free for all. Noone had respected their check in times, and all showed up early. ...

The reason for choosing a cruise was to visit the Caribbean islands for the first time and enjoy an experience that would serve the whole family's needs. We were a party of 6 ( including a toddler and grandparents) For us we have appreciated the comfort, the ease and security of a good choice of healthy foods ( being a vegetarian) with a sea surrounding accommodation for a few days and some good ...
