We travelled to Cyprus to pick up our cruise around the Greek Islands. The ship is one of the smaller classes but still has excellent facilities. We really enjoyed our time on the ship and it was nice that there was a limited amount of guests however having to wear a masks outside did seem a bit pointless when everyone is double jabbed and had negative tests. Highlights of the trip was the service ...

My Greek Island Cruise with no waiting in lines

DH and I had decided we would not cruise until the Pandemic was history. Then in June, along came a deal, Covid numbers were decreasing, and we booked a Greek Island Cruise for August.2021. It seemed that immediately after our booking the Covid numbers spiked to levels surpassing 2020. It seemed Greece and our departure port in Cyprus were hitting the news. So we turned off our TV and called ...

Nice itinerary but ship very tired

Booked as a package from the UK, so included flights and transfers which was very convenient. Testing procedure at the port very easy and efficient. Approx 500 on board and 850 crew. This resulted in some crew being a bit bothersome in "selling" services...the speciality restaurants, spa etc. Being bothered during dinner in the middle of your main course twice to try and get us to buy ...

After a wait of about 18 months, we chose this cruise as we weren't interested in a staycation and we wanted to experience a bit of warm sunshine. This ticked both boxes. The ship is looking great, crew were continually wiping down surfaces. You had to wear a mask whilst on the move bit if anyone didn't or just simply forgot ( I was guilty of that a few times ) , they gave a polite reminder and ...

Living in Cyprus we decided to try RC for the first time, from Limassol. What a wonderful surprise. We normally travel with Oceania, Regent, Seabourn but were desperate for a break away. We loved the cruise! Fantastic staff, excellent food and drinks and a reasonable cabin. No, it wasn't the same as other lines but the price wasn't either. The only downside for me was the casual dress in the ...

We couldn't wait to get back on a cruise ship and booked the Greek Islands back to back. Every staff member was beaming when we got on board and so were we! The service was unbelievable, the food excellent and the Greek Islands are a wonderful destination. The health protocol was strict but it didn't bother us to wear masks when we were wandering around the inside. We took them off when we ...

We selected this cruise for the itinerary, The Holy Land. The first sailing day we had stormy weather. Lots of queasy passengers, very hard to walk around and several activities cancelled or rescheduled. This is one of the challenges of sailing and -- it happens. The crew did a great job of communicating and making us as comfortable as possible given the circumstances. Because of the weather, ...

After 16 cruises with Royal Caribbean in three and a half years (Diamond Members), I can say without a doubt that this is probably our last RCL cruise. Unfortunately, I can also honestly say they probably don't care and won't notice. Our first cruise on the Jewel was marginal at best for the ship but great for the ports so when we saw this cruise to the Holy Land, we booked it. While on the ...

As I've travelled on Carnival, Princess, Holland America and others, this is a comparison to these lines. This was a nightmare. Twelve days and nights of misery. The cabin was supposed to be a room for 3 adults but immediately found there were 2 twin beds and a love seat. Customer service said there was a drop-down bunk bed only, for which a disabled 70 year old had to climb into. No way to ...

We choose this cruise for the Europe destinations. Rome was great to see when we first got there, a little crowded, but were told it's worse in the summer months. The cruise terminal is a long ride, but we had a private transfer which made it nice. The embarkation seemed like we were in a third world country. Pop up tents and metal guard rails in a parking lot, but it went pretty smooth compared ...
