Disappointing Journey

Review for Celebrity Infinity to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

After being 2 and 3-star Mariners on Holland America, my dad and I sailed on the Summit a year ago in August 2021 after we got a good rate and wanted to try Celebrity. We had such an amazing experience that we decided to take my mom with us on the Infinity due to timing/ports of call/etc.. I want to preface my review by saying that we went in knowing that it was a similar size ship to the Summit ...

A destination cruise not a cruise for the ship.

So we picked this cruise to surprise my mother and sisters who were taking the same cruise. Mostly Italian and Spanish guests onboard, who are quite rude. We did our research so knew it was a small older ship. Booking: We booked a package with flights and transfers through our TA. Any questions we had, had to go through our TA who would often get 3/4 different answers from RCL Customer ...

We were really looking forward to cruising again post covid. The itinery suited us perfectly as we wanted to spend a few days in Italy prior to boarding. We have sailed with P&O and Marella before and loved them and were looking forward to trying Royal Caribbean as we had heard they were great for teenagers. Whilst the basics were there and nothing was terrible, we felt that this cruise fell ...

This was my first RCI cruise. I chose it for its itinerary. The cruise started from Vienna/Ravenna, and, let me be clear, Ravenna is an expensive and inconvenient place to start a cruise. I had wanted to revisit Venice for a few days prior to the cruise, and very early on, I wrote to RCI inquiring about transfers to Ravenna from downtown Venice. I heard nothing. I called them, still almost 8 weeks ...

Geared toward Italian/European cruisers, poor entertainment

Review for MSC Armonia to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

Pros: Low price/good value, most staff, especially cabin steward and bar staff, itinerary. Cons: Entertainment was poor, buffet food was poor and very odd choices, customer service staff. Entire cruise geared toward Europeans. Specifics: Room: we had 2 balcony cabins and 1 inside cabin for my family members- the inside cabin was bigger than the balconies. No matter, as Marta, our ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary primarily. Wanted to see Greece and Croatia without finding a way there and different places to stay. Cruising is the best of all those worlds. Plus we got to see 2 cities in Italy where the cruise began. Win-win. Was very pleased with our cabin (#9254) and the overall ship. Ship was clean and was very visible they took effort in maintaining the ...

We initially booked the cruise for 2020 but finally were able to go on the cruise 3/7/2022. We enjoyed it! We chose this cruise because we wanted to experience a Mediterranean cruise and visit the spesific ports. Embarking was very efficient, check in was great, staff were friendly. Disembarking at the ports was not too much of a hassle. We could not go to Mykonos due to weather but a alternative ...

While the itinerary for this cruise is top notch, there is a lot that is really lacking luster. Everywhere you look on this ship, there is wear and tear - the carpets, the railings, the windows. It's a combination of cleaning (They have not been as diligent about cleaning the exterior windows it seems) and maintenance (fresh coats of paint needed everywhere). It's a weird thing to note but they ...

We booked this cruise in July 2019, made final payment in March 2020 3 days before lock down occurred. We were refused a refund and so we went along with the need to wait. Not a happy ending here. The departure port was changed from Venice to Ravenna, we were promised, in writing, that a complimentary shuttle would take us from Marco Polo airport to the ship. Well, after many excuses and ...

A big thank you to everyone on MSC Sinfonia for unforgettable experience. Service provided in every part of the ship is excellent, cleanliness immaculate and entertainment superb. I am very grateful to Disco Bar team: Kennet, Adhi, Wirwan and Bayu for their assistance, they work in different sections on the ship throughout the day and administer guests orders instantly. I also would like to say ...
