Ship is beautiful, but overcrowded and noisy

Embarkation We were on the first cruise that the Meraviglia sailed out of Miami. It started out very unorganized, and maybe this set the tone for the entire cruise. I've never seen a terminal as disorganized as ...

Incompetence at every step. Stay away!!!

Find another cruise - you have been warned

Find another ship or cruise line. This was miserable. First let’s say the disembark time was over an hour late, which in turn caused the load times to be pushed back. When you have 4K plus people waiting, it ...
