Buyer Beware

Poor management, unorganized, mediocre food - my only negative cruise review!

I have done over 41 cruises on various lines. I choose a cruise for the itinerary & price. I also did the 14 night trans Atlantic after the 12 night Greek island cruise. This is my first cruise review and only negative feelings about a ship. I had cruised the NCL Star twice in the past and did not feel this way then. Staff were friendly hard workers but not trained well. After taking an ...

Norwegian to Guests: "You will be taking this cruise despite broken down ship"

We went into this cruise with high expectations. We are Norwegian Platinum members and are no strangers to cruising, having also cruised on Princess, MSC, and Royal Caribbean. Norwegian has been, to now, our go-to cruise line. We thought we were booking a Greek Isles cruise, but what we got was a cruise of the Dalmatian Coast. As the reader may have already discovered from other reviews, the ...

I chose this cruise because I was excited that we would be at port most days and I really wanted to visit Santorini, Greece. Unfortunately, we were notified the day before we set sail that the itinerary had been changed and we would not be going to Santorini after all. They offered us $100 compensation per state room. They had also removed a stop to Montenegro and had shortened 5 of our other ...

Cons Significant itinerary change was the largest issue and made 2 days prior, 2 At Sea days were added for a total of 3 days. Santorini and Kotor were cancelled due to ships mechanical issues (they told us they lost an engine.) They shaved off 1-2 hours per port as well. We received $100 credit and 20% off future cruise. Incredibly disappointing. Lines for everything. Leaving out of ...

This was to be partners wonderful 70th birthday cruise culminating in Santorini, sadly, not to be. :/ Despite some pre-cruise issues, our taxi delivered us to Venice Cruise terminal without incident. We got in line and a nice Australian lady and her mother turned to us and said, 'Have you heard about the itinerary change? we hadn't and knew nothing of it, until we were literally in the line to ...

We arrived at the day of embarkation to find that the itinerary had changed. Apparently, this had been known at least a day before. We were to miss 3 (Kotor, Santorini, and Mykonos) of our 6 ports and they added Split and Bar. We were given $200 OBC per cabin and 20% of our cruise price as credit towards a future cruise. This felt a bit gimmicky and doesn't really make up for the fact of missing ...

To start off with I want to clarify the rating of 2. It is not a reflection on the staff (except maybe the Captain), the food or the general boat, though there are some small gripes about that. We, and a lot of the guests, booked this cruise because they wanted to go to Kotor and Santorini. There was an unexplained problem with the boat and so they cancelled Santorini and Kotor. This meant we ...

We are new-ish to cruising but this was our 3rd. We have done 1 P&O and 1 Royal Caribbean. We intend trying 5 cruise lines and then decide on who we want to sail with. MSC and Princess will be next. We currently have P&O and RC neck-and-neck in all aspects of quality and service from our own experience. This review isn’t against the staff because as with all cruise staff they work really ...

My new husband and I chose this cruise because we wanted to spend our honeymoon in Greece and thought a cruise would allow us to see more islands then traveling directly to the island. We were very wrong. The first issue with this cruise is that almost all of the locations require you to tender from the ship to the island. This requires passengers to wake up at 6am to get tendering tickets to ...

Cruised many times on RC and NCL has away to go to compare! First time on NCL! First day my friend/roommate was hurt due to hole in ships floor! Spent time in infirmary! No one on the ship did anything to try to appolige or make up for their negligence! I ran two flights of stairs & found room where incident occurred before any medical where on scene! With the exception of the Irish pub, ...
