Cruiser879's Past Cruises

Rhapsody of the Seas

December 2016 - Rhapsody of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Great itinerary and great crew, ship needs updating

We had a great family cruise with our adult kids.  We loved the itinerary and had a great time in every port.  The crew was fantastic as usual with our waiters and cabin steward providing excellent service with a very positive and friendly attitude.

 

We had a few issues with the ship which, although updated recently, needs more work.  Our balcony was unusable due to a very bad odor that, as explained by guest services, was normal and can occur in certain winds.  The restaurant ran out of many foods, including steak and the main chocolate dessert.  One of the production shows had to be cancelled due to technical reasons and the entertainment was average except for one of the headliners.  The cruise director was average as he seemed inexperienced.

 

RCCL still allows too much smoking on their ships and doesn't enforce no smoking areas.  Finally, the embarkation and disembarkation processes need to be improved.  We were diamond members, but did not receive any "fast track" service due to the very unorganized staff on the pier.

Celebrity Equinox

September 2016 - Celebrity Equinox to Europe - Mediterranean

Great Itinerary, Great Crew, Some Ship Refreshing Needed

This cruise had a great itinerary and the crew on the ship were fantastic.  The ship is starting to show her age, but they are trying to keep it in shape.  They have a great cleaning program that prevents illness.  The dining service was superb, but the food could have been better.  The entertainment is top notch, especially the production folks and the Tenors of Rock were fantastic.

Celebrity Eclipse

March 2016 - Celebrity Eclipse to Caribbean - Southern

Excellent Itinerary, Great Cruise, could have had better service

Our cruise was excellent with great ports that had perfect beaches and great shopping experiences.  The ship could have been better maintained and the beverage service was overwhelmed.  Our cabin stewards were the best and the dining room and specialty restaurant service was excellent.  The Celebrity excursions were average with the process being their usual unorganized chaos with long wait times.  The food was good, but not up to their usual high standards on this particular cruise.

 

We will sail again on Celebrity, but we hope that this experience was a one off.  Cruise One and Debbie and Bob Knox are the best and always find a way to make cruising easier and even more fun.

Cruiser879's Tips

Celebrity Eclipse Celebrity Eclipse - Don't miss the main entertainers, the glass blowing, the specialty restaurants and the evening sky lounge entertainment. The shopping is not usually better than the value you can get from the ports. The shipboard shops have to report sales to customs, but the port shops usually do not.
