We wanted to go to a warm weather place. It was getting cold here in New York. We enjoyed all of the cruise except for one thing. The shore excursion. We booked to pet the stingrays. I could not walk in the sand all the way. Everyone was way too far ahead of me. So we did not get to pet the Stingrays. I was surprised because about 1 month later. We got a check in the mail for the shore ...

The staff was awesome.. housekeeper Raymund, Bartender at shakers Ramona and Cigar lounge Bartender Paul.. were all so great. photographer Nigel ..the only disappointing part was the disembarking of 7 hrs was very frustrating. I carried my luggage off but others were just thrown on the dock and they had to search for their luggage which held up our leaving time with the bus.. Food was ok just ...

we were extremely impressed by the outstanding service and loved every minute we had on this magnificent ship..11 days, we saw beautiful islands..and yes we were diverted because I believe there were 2 medical emergencies but the crew handled the emergencies with such respect for human life that we felt so safe to be on a ship with such a caring attitude..The entertainment staff especially Benjel, ...

Poor Customer Service, Bed and Food

The customer service was very poor from day one. The mattresses in my balcony stateroom were in desperate need of replacement. The wifi package did not work well and no one wanted to take ownership. I would stand in long lines to then be told come back tomorrow. They billed me for things I didn't use and would send me in circles to get it resolved. After the first two days of this 11 day ...

Breakaway Sept 23 2018. We were told foul weather prevented the ship from leaving port in Copenhagen where we stayed for two days, There was no report of bad weather until we reached Estonia.We stayed an additional two days in Estonia due, again, to bad weather.. Additional port stops in Norway and Sweden were cancelled before we reached St. Petersburg. One day delay resulted in the cancellation ...

A nickel and diming cruise even if you are Platinum Latitudes Level

Because it sailed round trip NY to NY and I have Platinum Level Latitudes membership, I chose this cruise. Here’s how Platinum Latitudes Level benefitted me: I was invited to a reception where the hors d’ouvres were cheese and crackers, I received a bottle of sparkling wine and one bottle of water and one free bag of laundry. The laundry came back wrinkled and amateurishly folded. We did not use ...

Recently, we enjoyed an 11-day cruise to various Caribbean islands traveling out of NYC. The staff was amazing, very friendly, and we shared a lot of laughs together. The entertainment offered, expecially the rock bands "Shanti LLeone and the Guilty Pleasures" and the "Tenors of Rock" were outstanding. We were able to enjoy performances every night of the cruise and still wanted more. Hoping ...

This cruise went down hill from the beginning on the pier. One of the cruisers in our group went to check in and found out her balcony stateroom ( she had all her edocs) was sold to someone who bid on an upgrade from an inside cabin 4 days before sail date. In order for her to go on the completely booked cruise she had to REPAY and was treated terribly by the port staff ( who know NOTHING). We ...

We took our first cruise a year and a half ago, on the Norwegian Breakaway. We enjoyed it so much that we returned to the same ship for a cruise to the Caribbean this October. Unfortunately, we found that a great deal had changed on the ship during that time. Here's the summary: 1. The ship allows smoking in its casino, which is located in the center of one of the main floors, with an open ...
