First time with the Queen Mary 2 doing SYD-SIN. We have been with Royal Carribean Allure of the Seas and Aida Blue. First time coming in we have visited the pursers office to ensure we don't get charged their hefty daily room service charge.. then next day the charges were applied to our room... anyways we got this fixed right away by visiting them.. no worries. We were charged again though ...

We booked this back-to-back (31 day) cruise over a year ago. The itinerary took us to ports we’d never been before - Madagascar, Mauritius, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, Dubai - and we’d had such a wonderful experience on the Moon a year ago that we were looking forward to a repeat, which of course did not happen. This was our 63rd cruise, but only our 3rd - and most likely our last - on Silversea. Our ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We have toured South Africa before ...Cape Town and Garden route route by road. We wanted to try a cruise for the first time as it included two stops in Namibia with Silver Spirit. At least is what was planned. After our booking Luderitz was cancelled in Namibia and came off the schedule due to so called operational challenges! And hooray was the message therefore an extra day in Cape Town! Having ...

We chose this cruise because of the Indian Ocean and east Africa itinerary knowing the ship was older but refurbished in 2021 and 4 star rated. The rating should be 2 or 3 star at best and here is why- Main dinning room food options while well prepared, were limited, no lobster, no escargot, no prime rib. We found it dumbed down and nothing special. The ship is tired and quite ...

Not an enjoyable cruise

Overall we didn't find much we liked about this ship or NCL's ability to communicate clearly. The extra charges for simple things really turned us off. Room service is $5 for breakfast and $10 the rest of the day. They will not allow an electric kettle in the room like other lines so if you want hot water it will cost a little over $12 for them to bring you a hot pot of water. Want to get some ...

Cruised on the Dawn for the itinerary. Staying onboard all the way to Capetown. No complaints at all regarding the ship or the food. The only reason for 4 stars is I believe a 5 star rating is reserved for spectacular cruising and very few cruise ships get that rating. The Dawn has gotten us to all the ports as expected and will do so for the next 2 weeks. Being an older ship, it is very ...

My partner and I chose this cruise based on Oceania's tag line "Best cuisine in the sea", or words to that effect. Twenty days on the ship and it was downhill from day two. The problem was the food. It was not just us, but practically every other passenger we spoke to, We have cruised on other lines, Cunard, Celebrity, Holland America, Windstar and have never been disappointed with the ...

This was our 5th Silversea Cruise and we choose it for the Itinerary. First time on the Spirit, embarkation was good, cabin great as usual. The problems started when because of Jet Lag we woke up at 3am, no internet or Tv working. This went on for 3 days. I even asked if we could move cabins and was asked" why is TV so important to you?" Wowzers, Wasnt expecting that..I said its not important ...

This was our 21st cruise. Having sailed before with Princess, Celebrity and Cunard. We chose this cruise firstly for the itinerary and secondly for the fact that this was supposed to be a luxury cruise. We searched and searched and could not find the luxury that was supposed to be aboard this vessel. In fact what we found was a ship in need of modernising and updating. The ships overall ...

NCL Dawn Cruise from Istanbul to Dubai Nov 24 to Dec 13 The cruise changed a number of times. This was explained as a result of the conflict in Palestine. However, stops in Egypt were removed with others added. Sea days were also added. A credit of $200 for the stateroom was provided for the entire trip. No explanation of the compensation for the missed ports, additional sea days, and reduction ...
