Surprising Value

Review for Zenith to Europe - Western Mediterranean

We chose this cruiser for the itinerary and the low price which included a basic beverage package, Cabin was dated and the wallpaper worn but the mattress was good, the linens fresh, the plumbing worked and everything was clean. Staff were friendly throughout. Food good with reasonable choice. Excellent al fresco dining aft of the buffet with great views. Entertainment OK for a small ship. ...

We chose the cruise because of three good experiences with Pullmanturs. We are British, but both speak Spanish, so there was no language problem - not that there would have been. All the crew are at least bilingual. Zenith herself is not a youngster, and a tiny bit tatty in places, but always clean. The food on board was the best we have ever had on a cruise, ad indeed on a par with many five ...

Good itinerary with poor service

Very low overall level of service on the vessel. Poor control and management in the bars and restaurant. The same cocktail in different bars has a completely different taste. Dish cleaners did their work slowly and lazily. From the side, their discontent with all is noticeable. The general condition of the vessel is not satisfactory. Inside the elevators feeling very hot, the ventilation system ...

If Pullmantur can save a dime on something, it will end up costing you $1. They will either tender or find the cheapest dock space there is available. Stockholm= tender to port in another town (up to 2.5 hours wait), walk 15 min to train station or pay $5 for shuttle, 1 hr train to town for $20. All the connections really limit your time available. Copenhagen= dock in another country, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was our first cruise and after reading the reviews in advance were a little worried, however the fears were soon dispelled. Our cabin(9006) was very comfortable and kept spotlessly clean. The food on board was excellent both in the main restaurant and buffet. The ship was very clean throughout and the lounges and bar areas were well maintained. The staff were amazing - so polite but ...

We were a party of 6 in three cabins with balcony, the cabins were good, the food was excellent and the entertainment was first class, although Mr Bubbles was probably more for the kids. Great crew all friendly. We read some bad reviews before we boarded, but hey there are always wingers so all was a pleasant surprise.. Full marks to the Zenith crew. The ship is a old but was in good condition, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

So looks like my first ever cruise was to be the last for this ship in its present form.....it's now on its way to a refit before moving to the Caribbean. Desperately needs a refit cos its tired beyond redemption.......supposedly had a Deluxe Cabin with Balcony but Deluxe is described as "Particularly elegant, luxurious, or elaborate for its kind; of superior quality or refinement:". .....not ...

We chose this cruise as it had tribute acts we had seen in our local club in Spain. We had what was advertised as a junior suite, apparently it wasn't. The bathroom stank! We were to,d to keep the plug in the bath to stop the smell. The bed was comfy, plenty of storage. Our cabin steward never cleaned it properly. All inclusive! I don't drink alcohol and due to being diabetic don't drink ...

Loud people, rude staff, we were told off in the bar by a surly waiter for lifting a hand to attract his attention. The bar was open too late as at 4.30 in the morning we were awoken by screams and shouts going past the door. The tours were apalling, no organisation on the ship at all, we were always the last off the ship. Then almost at the end of the cruise we had food poisoning, a final insult ...
