Past cruises

Royal Princess

September 2019 - 5 Night Cabo San Lucas Getaway (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Royal Princess

Disappointing at best

Very disappointing. The food was mediocre past the service tolerable, the ships passage ways and rooms narrow the dining rooms crowded. It took three hours to debark by tender in Cabo San Lucas.

Celebrity Edge

January 2019 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Edge

This was my second celebrity sailing, and after all the hype I was eagerly looking forward to the infinity room. I went on its second voyage in January, expecting a five-star experience. The infinity balcony was a grave disappointment. Much tinier than it looked in the pictures. And you couldn't use the shade with the window open. The window dropped down from the top. The balcony itself was barely big enough for a tiny table that held a single plate, and two chairs , with no room to move around them. The sides were all the way out to the end and were opaque Steel. No side views. I bought a premium liquor package because they said Macallan 18 was on it. Only one bar in the entire ship served Macallan 18 and that was down a flight of stairs and I have a bum knee. Way too few bars, spread at the extreme ends of the ship and not much selection or seating room at any of them. My liquor package was a total loss, and I did most of my drinking ashore. The food was mediocre for a cruise ship, including the worst and runniest french onion soup I've ever had, Bland shrimp cocktail, and no Central Dining Room. The four free dining rooms required reservations, which never seemed to be available , so you had to go down and stand around and wait for an opening. There was nowhere to sit near the restaurant while waiting, but they were happy to have photographers out there. Room service had an extremely small and limited selection, and liquor ordered through it was not included on your package. They charged a $4.95 delivery fee for any orders after 11 p.m. and before 6 a.m. The breakfast door hanger varied from day today, although the selection was always the same. We made up things and got them. If you ordered eggs, hash browns, and sausage, they came on three different plates with three different covers, overcrowding the tiny space in the tiny cabin. Very little closet space. And before you come down on me for a negative review and criticize the reviewer, remember this space is for us to give our honest opinion so others can use that, and making their decisions for future cruises. To blatantly build up something that you don't feel is up to Snuff is wrong. To criticize someone for giving their honest opinion is also wrong.

Cruise tips

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

It took three hours to debark by tender. We just had time to visit El Senor frog and a couple of pharmacies Before Sunset. Did not get to do an Excursion.

San Pedro (Los Angeles), California

Roads are being torn up and rerouted and it was very difficult even with a GPS to find the ship. It took 15 minutes to get through the gate into the parking lot.

Royal Princess
