Never again with Vantage Travel

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Ocean Explorer

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We are President's Club members of Vantage, having traveled with them over a half-dozen times; but this will be our last trip with Vantage. We had a cruise cancelled during the COVID pandemic and Vantage was not keen on giving us our deposit of $1,000 back to us. The manager promised us an extra credit of another $1,000 if we would leave our deposit with Vantage; and this was done. We later were ...

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Ocean Explorer

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

DO NOT BOOK WITH VANTAGE TRAVEL!!! 1. Last May 2022, we booked a cruise "AMAZON RIVER CRUISE: Manaus to Nassau". Two days before Christmas, on our "Portfolio" which we have to initiate as opposed to notifying us by email, Vantage states they are changing the cruise to "Passage to the Caribbean" totally removing the Amazon River. We asked for a refund and were told there would be a 65% ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

All were well-organized and included high-quality guides, lecturers, and shore excursions. Our experience ...

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Ocean Explorer

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I booked this cruise prior to March 2022 getting a last minute deal of $5500USD including flights. It was postponed to November 2022. The cruise was supposed to finish in Manaus Brazil & visit Devil’s Island. A few weeks before I got a trip alert on my portfolio telling me of the changes. My main reason for booking this cruise was to visit the above. At the first night on the cruise at the ...

Most expensive and worst vacation ever

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Ocean Explorer

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

The Ocean Explorer is a small ship that has the potential to offer a wonderful vacation, but Vantage Travel is hopeless. We sailed out of Nassau Bahamas for the Atlantic Seaboard trip - ending in Boston. Vantage required us to get a PCR test within 48 hours of boarding that cost us $350 (even though the Bahamas and every other cruise line would take the much cheaper antigen test results) and then ...
