Pride of America

November 2015 - 7 Night Hawaii (Honolulu Roundtrip) Cruise on Pride of America

Shouldn't compare but have

Sad to say that other cruise lines outshine by far Norwegian. Rooms tiny. Food boring and unimaginative. Servers blaze, uncaring and forgetful. Buffet unorganized and foods that are to be warm cold. I do have to admit that the professional shows were excellent. The ship was clean. The steward that tended our room had to b tracked down. The ships motto "I can I can is not true. The first thing asked for ( a.99 cent extension cord for my hubbys breathing machine)we had to go to the service desk and sign a paper that we would return it or we would be charged 25 dollars. Ha! The ports we arrived at in all the islands were shipping ports with nothing around so that u had to either take an excursion or hire a taxi to get away from all the cargo containers. The excursions were very expensive for the value. Guess NCL has the corner on market there. In other words I believe we'll spend our time and hard earned money on the cut above cruise lines. Royal carribean, Princess, Disney , Holland American........etc.

Celebrity Constellation

February 2015 - 4 Night Bahamas (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Constellation

Unsatisfactory

This was our first cruise with Celebrity and the probability of cruising with them again is NOT!!

There were many unfriendly and grumpy employees along with fewer extremely friendly and pleasant ones. Our cabin steward came to our room as we were unpacking and introduced himself and after that never saw him again. I took pictures of the dirty bathroom floor and ragged towels we were given which I will send to the cruise lines.

 The two main shows were very professional and were enjoyed along with the violinists who were fantastic!!

The Buffet on deck 10 had issues. Most of the Ice Machines were 'temporally out of order' for the entire cruise, the food areas were unorganized. People coming in from both sides. Especially when food items were being individually made to order. I stood in line for an omelet and never got waited on because people were coming in from both sides. Waited over 10 mins then left.

We could not get anything to drink anywhere on the ship except on deck 10. Everyplace had a charge for water or coffee. One could get a pastry or cookie but had to pay for coffee. The Bistro had a 7 dollar cover charge for crepes. They quarter and dollared you to death.

The dining room experience was different. the food was good. Creme Brulee was exceptional and our two servers was the best ever. They were respectful, personable, friendly and knew what we wanted and needed before we did. Cuties. We had twelve in our party and were treated royally. We were fortunate to have these great servers as we observed the glum faces of the other servers around the room.

Before we booked the cruise. We were told that Celebrity was a cut above the other cruise lines so we expected more since we had been on many other lines and had something to compare it to. However I feel it is many cuts below.

aFloridaCruiser's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - Extremely congested there. Many ships in Port at the same time. Have been there many times. Got off ship and walked through the straw market
Willemstad, Curacao - Enjoyed this island the most with a trolley tour and the rolling bridge.
Independence of the Seas Independence of the Seas - Just be laid back and enjoy the people,shows,food, service and ports. Be pleasant, smile and let your face show it.
Nassau, Bahamas - crowded. 6 or 7 ships were docked there. excursions were expensive from the ship but could find much better deals on the island
