A Disappointing Experience Aboard Celebrity Solstice

Review for a Asia Cruise on Celebrity Solstice

10+ Cruises • Age 32s

I recently had the unfortunate experience of cruising on the Celebrity Solstice, and regrettably, my overall impression is far from positive. The cruise was marred by a series of disappointments, primarily centered around the lackluster service and subpar amenities. From the onset, the service on the ship left much to be desired. Rather than creating a relaxing environment, the staff seemed ...

Avoid at all cost

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on MSC Magnifica

Karen jones
First Time Cruiser • Age 43s

It’s worse than Carnival. You book to have dinner at a certain time but when you get here they give you run around telling you to go to guest services. You get there they send you back to the dining. It was a pattern. Guest services was useless and would give us wrong information the whole time. The whole boat smelled like cigarettes smoke. It was everywhere. It’s not kid friendly. I’ve never ...

Aurora troubles

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Aurora

10+ Cruises • Age 65s

Ok, chose this short break as an early Christmas do for my wife and I, the ship needs either a total revamp or scrapping, the archaic plumbing system is not fit for purpose, blocked overflowing toilets in the cabin happened three times in four days, the last day the bathroom was unusable for 8 hours due to failure of the vacuum system for the toilets. Sewage leaking across the bathroom floor, ...

Aurora review

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Aurora

10+ Cruises • Age 68s

We were already booked on the Aurora for 16 night Baltic Cruise in May 2024 so when this mini cruise came up we decided to try it as a taster. We normally cruise with Cunard but we liked the itinerary of the Baltic cruise and liked the size of the ship, and adult only was a bonus. Having read some poor reviews of this ship, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. ...

Ship needs some Love….Quickly

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Celebrity Summit

10+ Cruises • Age 56s

We chose this ship for 2 reasons. One was because it was our first Celebrity cruise and two, we wanted to visit Key West. I kept hearing great things about Celebrity, so I figured to give it a try. We’ve been on many different lines, so we had a lot to compare certain things to. The not so good… First thing to say is the ship is old and is in need of some attention in many places. Rust is ...

Fabulous luxury cruise

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Queen Elizabeth

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We wanted to celebrate our 30th in style so we chose Cunard. They did not disappoint. Great service , sparkly rooms ,lots of activities, fabulous food and free laundry. We loved our Balcony Room and we enjoyed the televised lectures and entertainment. Staff were great to chat to not robots. Spa was great . Internet - new Starlink was well worth the basic price. FB , emails and some videos ...

Nice cruise with poor food

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on MSC Magnifica

10+ Cruises • Age 74s

We were invited to join our cousins on this cruise. Before the cruise they told us that the ship was nice, the overnight stay on the island reserve was great, and the dinner food was poor. They were 100 percent spot on. We picked the cruise after Thanksgiving and the cruise was only a little more than 50 percent full. First for the good. The ship was attractive and in good shape. There ...

So much to enjoy!

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Liberty of the Seas

Sailer Duane
10+ Cruises • Age 57s

Liberty of the Seas is a delightful ship with so much to enjoy especially on a 3 or 4 night itinerary. Embarkation was a breeze 5 minutes after being dropped off we were getting our welcome aboard photo and walking down the gangway directly stepping onboard. The Windjammer was open and had an abundance of food to select from. Everything we tasted was good and the service friendly. The exterior of ...

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Norwegian Sky

Dusty Trails
10+ Cruises • Age 68s

The Sky is an old ship. We knew this but NCL claimed their upgrade in 2022 was great. Not. Pros: Crew, all great, esp. 'Yogi' the butler and 'Huberth', concierge. Layout of the cabin (not the location, aft penthouse suite- above the show theater. Production shows were spectacular, all of them. Cagney's steakhouse was superb. Cons: Just feels old, wall paper in spots peeling through out ...

Getting back into cruising after Covid

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Sunshine

Watery Dan
10+ Cruises • Age 74s

We haven't sailed since pre-covid and we needed a short cruise to get going again. Choose this to regain our sea legs. we live in Virginia, so this was a reasonably short drive down to Charleston. Arrived Saturday afternoon for the Sunday morning boarding. My wife was on a mobility scooter and we contacted carnival early to fill out their forms. They directed us to the handicapped parking ...
