Food Quality and Services were Poor

Review for Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Western

First, the good things. My wife and I chose this cruise as a winter getaway. We generally prefer 7 day cruises but a 5 day trip departing from New Orleans looked like a good vacation. In addition we decided to stay in an oceanview cabin and it was a good value. The Valor staff were all hard working and courteous. Every employee we encountered did the best they could in their role to serve ...

This was our first cruise and the experience was more than expected. Everything was so easy, from boarding to disembarkation. I don’t even know where to begin. Zack the cruise director was awesome (funny, witty, welcoming)….he totally needs his own show! Lady Ocean (Fun Squad member) treated everyone like they were part of HER family! Absolutely loved her. The cleanliness of this ship was ...

Booked to celebrate our 55th anniversary. The ship was super overcrowded. Service was horrible, not enough staff! The excursion to Sol Mar was horrible, bus was old falling apart, driver missed the entrance. Last bus to arrive at 945 and told lunch was served 10 to 11. No one wants to eat lunch at 10, we had just arrived everyone was complaining about it. We were told there would be ...

This was our first cruise and will probably be our last with NCL. Pro's - 1. Food was good 2. Drinks were good 3. Entertainment was great 4. Room was nice Con's - 1. Way to crowded - our ship was at capacity or a couple hundred short of it based on what the cruise director said. This made is hard to much of anything without waiting in long lines. 2. Loud - With the ship ...

We chose this cruise specifically for Harvest Caye, which was beautiful overall. The beach area however has very course sand and heavy seaweed. The show Six was also amazing. This is where the good stops. We have cruised with Norwegian many times in the past with little to no issues. The Breakaway was a disappointment. The ship is understaffed. Meal service was slow, staff unattentive, bar service ...

The staff recently had layoffs and pay cuts. This is felt throughout the ship. Our room attendant was so nice but his rooms went from 15 to 22 and this was the consensus across the ship. Our waiters were grumpy and frustrated that they weren't receiving tips. We felt bad and wound up not having our room serviced. When we booked this trip, it was WAY more than on Carnival and I was ...

I’ve been cruising since I was a kid ( I’m 39 now) and I have had many amazing cruise experiences (14 cruises )I have almost always sailed on Royal Caribbean, however, I have sailed with Carnival two times. I will have to say that I was very excited to sail on Norwegian cruise line as I had heard so many great things from patrons of the line. I was surprised to see that they were offering the Free ...

Probably One of Our Best Carnival Cruises

Review for Carnival Glory to Caribbean - Western

If you're in the market for a cruise vacation, the Carnival Glory is a solid choice. I recently spent seven days on the ship, and found it to be the perfect amount of time. Not too long, but long enough to fully experience all the amenities the ship has to offer. I've been on two cruises out of New Orleans, and it's my favorite departure location. The Glory is starting to show its age a bit, ...

My 15th cruise, and worst one ever

We booked this cruise as a treat for my mother and aunt. In all, there were 4 adults, and no children. We left out of New Orleans, which is a few hours drive for us, and purchased the priority boarding package. Our time to board was between 1 pm and 1:30 pm. This was a complete waste of money, as there was no PRIORITY boarding. The terminal traffic was horrible, with stop and go traffic as ...

We chose NCL over some others mainly for the Entertainment. Big mistake! Please do not cruise with NCL. They will treat you with no courtesy. First we departed late from NOLA, which caused us to arrive late at other ports so two of our excursions were canceled. Second our a/c went out in our cabin it took almost two hours for them to respond. The food was bland unless you ate at a specialty ...
