I've only cruised with Norwegian and wanted to try another line. I booked a premium balcony suite which is an aft corner cabin. Supposed to be a wrap around balcony. A bigger balcony. Decent balcony, small room. We arrived to our room and my partner asked if I smelled something. I didn't. I was outside mostly as we waited for our luggage. It arrived and we went for drinks and then to our ...

We all understand during Covid and the resuming of cruising again that you have to be flexible with the itinerary changes. We all sign and agree in the fine print under terms and conditions that the cruise lines has the right to change itinerary at will. I have status with both NCL and Royal Caribbean and have been on dozens of cruises. On my most recent cruise in March 2022 on the Gem, two ...

I choose this cruise because I wanted to go to the 5 islands they offered. But my disappointment started 2 months before when they changed 3 of the islands, the 3 that I was looking forward to because they were the ones I hadn’t visited. Well then after 3 hours in line before we got on the ship, they canceled another island. One that they replace in the beginning. No reason or offer for the ...

I was very reluctant to cruise considering the ongoing pandemic. When I got the invitation from NCL that they are now open for sailing, I was reluctant for my health and the probability of being exposed to Covid. I am a NCL Latitude Member.I have sailed on several occasions to different places, not to mention, in different Norwegian cruise ships. The one factor that convinced me to go ,was my ...

The start of our cruise was extremely easy. We all tested at the pier which was well organized. Only about 30 people in a group. Once your test is negative you get to check in for your cruise. Took about 1hour for everything. No more Muster drill. You have to watch a video and once on board you fine your muster station and they sign you off. Very easy. The ship was only at 730 capacity. We ...

Sailing in a time of Covid is risky and requires patience, open mindedness and a sense of humor. Ports come and go, the weather is throwing curves and you have to just lay back and go with the flow. The ship sailed with about 25% of normal passenger load. (for some reason on the sea days you still cannot get a chair poolside). There are more crew than cruizers, and the dining rooms are ...

This was the third time our Caribbean cruise was rescheduled due to two years of COVID cancelations. We arrived with negative COVID tests and took another rapid one on day of departure. We thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. 5 of us were first time cruisers. The staff were incredible. Kudos to Ivan, Egy, Farrot, & Nythin to mention a few but the biggest surprise was the fantastic band Sonata. They ...

Loved the fact it was two weeks and at the time of year when we needed a break. Beautiful new ship. Observation Lounge was very spacious, maybe too spacious as itwas half empty a lot of the time. Food was okay but not great. Better on the Escape. Layout was good but prefer the Escape here as well. The entertainment/shows were inadequate for the number of days we were on the cruise ship, ...

A Terrible and Expensive Disappointment

Review for Queen Mary 2 (QM2) to Caribbean - Eastern

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Our 5th cruise on the QM2 and possibly our 40th cruise overall. The Queen has clearly lost her crown. The ship is aging and needs refurbishing. Seating in the Illuminations theater needs to be fixed so they stay upright, need to be reupholstered; the public areas need to be kept free of detritus and stray bits of food and/or personal effects; the food in the main dining room was absolutely ...
