OK but would probably not do it again - Southampton to NY 6/23-6/30 2019

We (2 couples) chose this cruise to return from a European vacation rather than fly back to the US. We knew the cruise would be very formal but as one English passenger said when I queried him about his experience ...

Not what I have come to expect on Holland America

I want to start off my saying the cruise wasn't bad. I met a few great people and had a good time. Did I like the new ship, Nieuw Statendam? Not really. I knew when I signed up for the cruise I just might find it ...

You Get What You Pay For....and a little less!

Many have already commented on the horrendous way that NCL waited to the last minute to announce a change in itinerary, and a bungled effort to respond to initial complaints. None of these comments is exaggerated, ...

As a Platinum Plus Member of the cruise line I can say that the worst cruise

First of all, starting from embarkation we came across with the same problem, again and again, we have Turkish special passport holders which do not require us to obtain a visa for certain countries. We told it each ...

Not the Norwegian Experience we came to love years ago!

We chose this Transatlantic for the time and itinerary. We had a bad experience on Getaway Transatlantic 2017 with ship mechanical problems, skipped, shortened ports and crew unable to get passengers on and off the ...

Don't book through Celebrity Cruises website - otherwise fine

I would rate the cruise as 4, except for the failure of the cruise-line to take responsibility for the online website error. In future, we will not book through Celebrity's website. We booked the cruise online ...
