Our first cruise - disappointing

Our family recently experienced what a horrible cruise is all about. The first moment we embarked on board we were greeted by phantom service - there was no smiles, or hello welcome aboard, nothing. Quite different ...

P&O Aria - Boring

P&O advertised ship as new ship, it wasn't. It was a new ship to their fleet but built in the 1990's. The cruise was so boring with very little for passengers to do. The entertainment director should be ashamed. The ...

Very, very poor cruise; amazed we didn't get cholera.

I do not appreciate being the test dummy for an international cruising company to help them sort out their inadequacies and failings as a service provider. We changed rooms 5 times in 7 days as they could not get ...

Mayday Mayday; let us off!

Ok where do I start? This was the worst and most boring holiday of our lives. If you hate someone recommend the P&O Aria. Nothing to do but eat, drink and listen to lame lifeless entertainers. Cabins looked nice ...

Our first cruise experience has left us feeling disappointed and sad.

The whole 10 days we were served the worst food we have ever eaten. There was a couple of meals that were nice (not outstanding) and the rest were disgusting. Food was very bland, luke warm and badly cooked and the ...

A new low in hospitality standards

Sold as a shiny new ship, Pscific Eden was floating chaos. Fresh from dry dock, most of the public areas were shiny and new, yes, but that's where any similarity to The Love Boat ended. The majority of staff on ...
