The biggest waste of money

Review for Carnival Breeze to Caribbean - Western

Our family decided to take a cruise together. I personally travel for a living. This is absolutely worst experience I have ever had on a trip. The bed in my cabin had trash from previous guests underneath it. My fridge didn’t work and the T.V. would stop working every evening while I was in the winding down from the day. The food was horrible. I added cash to my account at a kiosk. When I went to ...

I’m not sure where to start but for I guess I’ll start with boarding. This was only my third cruise ever and first with MSC I’m 26 so this is my experience. It took us about 3 hours to get on the ship I can with a group of 15 and we paid in advance for an MSC shuttle to pick us up from the Air bnb , we chose the earliest time (7am) and when we arrived they told us they won’t let anyone into the ...

Don’t waste money on priority

Experience on the ship was ok. Getting on and off was a complete nightmare. We had a suite on the ship which had priority benefits. Priority was non existent. We traveled with friends that did not have priority and they got on and off the ship way faster than us. Going on the ship we ended up in a room with other priority people, we sat there just to be ignored for about forty five minutes. We ...

We just returned from a Thanksgiving cruise on Meraviglia. Overall, we had an excellent experience at an unbeatable price for two aft balconies. As far as dining, we especially enjoyed the meals in the main dining room, smoothies for breakfast in the marketplace buffet, the pizza, and the variety of ethnic options that changed every day. The cheesecake at dinner was consistently the best ...

Major disappointment and wasted thousands of dollars

First, the New Orleans cruise terminal was a nightmare. We followed online directions only to discover that the main entrance was closed and we had to re-route through awful traffic in downtown New Orleans. Once there, people were told that they couldn't check their luggage curbside and had to go through security with all their large bags and sit with them in the terminal waiting room. ...

Average cruise with a very average service

This was a last minute planned cruise to celebrate a special occasion. We cruised 10 times with RCI since 2006, the last 3 times we cruised in 2017, 2019, 2021 we though that it would be the last cruise with Royal, we are of the same opinion after this cruise. Because it was a last minute and a holiday cruise, all our preferred cruise lines were sold out, so we booked Explorer. It was a very ...

Free internet is a joke. Priority access is a bigger joke. Paid $179, only to be told on arrival” it’s raining, not available today”. Then on disembark “ oh, priority not available today”. Be very careful on your excursions, they don’t tell you it’s a 3 hour round trip drive. Left out of Costa Maya, we were never told it was an hour and a half to get to the raft excursion until we ...

Best Cruise Ever!

We chose this cruise primarily because the Sail dates fit our time frame. We booked a Sky Suite which to me was not (our first time on Celebrity) much bigger than a standard Verandah room on Norwegian and Holland America. But it was well appointed and didn't feel too cramped. So many good things to say, here are some Highlights: The staff and service were incomparable Our suite gave us ...

This was our 6th cruise and our least favorite experience. The ship had some design flaws, i.e. the Liquid Lounge has horrible seating the rows are not elevated enough to see over people, the aisles are to narrow to walk, the ground floor is just common dining chairs with NO elevation at all. Plus the actual entertainment was underwhelming. Most singers were so off-key it was painful to listen to. ...
