Oceania cruises are great for couples (nothing interesting for children or singles) This cruise was from San Franciso to Santiago Chile, i.e. a 22-day section of a world cruise. In addition to embarkation and debarkation, we visited these ports: Santa Barbara and San Diego in USA; Cabo, Ixtapa, Acapulco and Puerto Chapas in Mexico; Puerto Quetzel in Gautemala, Acajutla in El Salvador; Manta ...

This was my ninth (and longest) Princess cruise, and one my partner and I were particularly looking forward to. And it was a great cruise...almost. The Star was in excellent shape, except for occasional sewage smells. And the journey was wonderful. Embarking 20 minutes from my house and ending up in Argentina? I'll do that! It was great to celebrate the winter holidays aboard. The food was ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Having travelled on many ships over a span of over 40 years I find one needs to treat the ship and the itinerary as two distinct parts. So first the ship, and then the itinerary. A: The ship As a ship I found it had a culture that lacked attention to detail and as for organisation, well anything goes. From embarkation at San Francisco when a Princess organiser insisted we hand our bags to a ...

We weren't too sure about embarking on a holiday cruise since we had never been away from the family over Christmas before. We were surprisingly pleased with the atmosphere created on board by the Princess Star. The lovely decor, special music including Christmas caroling with snow showers, the candlelight dinner in the dining room on Christmas evening,and MOST enjoyable for us was the special ...

Norwegian Sun Repositioning Cruise November, 2009 November 1 & 2, 2009 We stayed at the Radisson at Fisherman's Wharf. Small rooms but clean and strategically placed near the Wharf and only ½ mile from Pier 35 where the Norwegian Sun docks. An IHOP next door for inexpensive food. Had a great night dinner on Columbus Avenue at an Italian Restaurant offering a red long stemmed rose for ...

Embarkation was on 4 Nov 08. After spending two days in San Francisco I was ready for our cruise to start. Check in at the VIP spot was a smooth process and we where on the ship at 11;30am—there was no escort to our cabin, which I thought was part of 2.0. At 12;30 we went to Il Adagios for lunch—it was fantastic the sirloin steak is from the steak house and it is great - I had this for lunch 4 ...

Overall we had a great time!The ship NCL Sun is in need of refurbishing as it's showing it's wear and tear. We were in an "aft" cabin and have never experienced soot like we had on this cruise but the room stewards who were very good stayed on top of it.The cruise was about 75% full. Embarkment and Disembarkment for us was a breeze due to being Latitudes gold. Entertainment The Jean Ann Ryan ...

Background: This was our fourth cruise with NCL . Having experienced Freestyle cruising before, we knew what to expect and have only cruise with NCL prior for this very reason. Pre Cruise: We flew in to San Francisco 3 days prior, as we had not been there before. We stayed at the Hyatt Fisherman's Wharf and could not recommend this hotel enough. The rooms were very clean and ...
