Requires improvement

We chose this cruise mainly due to the itinerary as India has been on the list for a while. The negative reviews were numerous but we decided to go ahead as we were not expecting 5 star treatment. First the ...

Another top cruise - Maiden South Africa Cruise

Firstly can I say, I'm baffled by the previous two negative reviews given that we were on the same Mumbai to Cape Town Cruise December 28. I do agree that the on board service was delivered in the usual outstanding ...

Worse ports ever!

We wanted to go to Dubai and are experienced cruisers world wide. This is our 12 th cruise and it started in Mumbai. Mumbai should never be visited unless you like crazy traffic with shanties everywhere. Way way ...

From Mumbai to Rome on the worst cruise ever

We had previously traveled with Costa and it was just wonderful. Hoping for a similar experience, we booked this trip with great difficulty. Costa would not return e-mails or phone calls with our travel agent. They ...

Good for Italians Not so Much for English

We wanted to see India but were concerned about the pollution so thought this cruise would be the best way. We were in Mumbai for 3 days before embarkation to explore the city. Boarding the ship went well. We ...

Dowdy sometimes dirty ship with poor food

After reading earlier reviews we specifically asked Silverseas Uk for reassurance that this ship was indeed up to scratch, they said yes we would receive the normal 5 star luxury cruise experience..... basically ...

Costa are very money grabbing, with poor customer care.

I was in same group as MchrisD and would echo everything that was said. In addition, I pre booked bought a drinks-package Pranzo & Cena for €237.86 which entitles you to wine and beer only at lunch and dinner ...

Once with Oceania was enough! Never again.

Chose this cruise for itinerary (good) and reputation (overrated). Oceania's website is very poor which reflected their organisation. We booked Oceania air because of a direct flight, then found the flight was ...

Never cruise on Oceania

I do not have adequate words to describe my first cruise on Oceania. Our carry on luggage was lost during embarkation and the Oceania staff told us they had searched the ship and could not find it. After hours ...

India to Cape Town

There is no point in just being critical and having recently sailed on the Silver Cloud I have to say the following. We have cruised with Silversea many times before and even though we were not fortunate enough ...

Fabulous Cruise

We (just the two of us) love the size of this ship and that all the cabins are a comfortable size, though we did have a larger cabin on this particular cruise. The service was impeccable as usual and food was very ...

Wish we hadn’t bothered

The cruise was part of Imagine Cruising itinerary for our cruise of the Indian Coast. We would never have chosen Costa Cruises as their reputation precedes them. But with good intentions we went ahead. Rather a ...
