MSC Divina

January 2017 - MSC Divina to Caribbean - Eastern

Great time but the ports of call were not great.

Spent an inordinate ammount of time in Puetro Rico - 8am til 10pm. St. Martin was only 5 hours which prevented any real time to do much of anything. La Romana was a complete waste of time and Nassau was a bust. Lots of beautiful places to go in the Carrib but we seemed to miss them. Still we had a great time but we are the kind of people who could have fun in a sand box in the backyard. Also the menu choices in La Muse were limited. Felt like the same menu every evening. The staff was great but it seems as if MSC is cutting back on services.

Norwegian Dawn

December 2014 - Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - Western

The Norwegian Dawn should be scrapped

This ship should be scrapped. It has an old and dirty feel. The balcony stateroom was awful. The safe didn't work; the TV remote had to be replaced; the balcony was covered with crud and was unusable; the bathroom flooded with toilet water; the shower was very weak;  and evening tile replacement above us was annoying. We foolishly bought the "drinking package" only to find that the drinks contained water instead of liquor. Because of these faults we were made to feel like "complainers". When the service was good it was very good but in most cases it was simply substandard. Being "gold" members we were given perks such as priority tender boarding and priority disembarkation. These "perks" meant nothing to the bossy stewards.

The only good things we can take away from this cruise were the relationships we made with other passengers who didn't hesitate to share their similar problems and complaints. Also, props should go to Maximo who ran Cagney's steakhouse extremely well.

The NFL was played on Saturday but was unavailable anywhere on the ship. The sports bar showed "cricket" and the guy who ran the bar seemed delighted make jokes about it.

Overall, the experience was dreadful and Norwegian should be ashamed. They are killing the goose that laid the golden egg.

Celebrity Silhouette

May 2014 - Celebrity Silhouette to Europe - Mediterranean

weak excursions. poor dining choices. mediocre service.

have had wonderful experiences with celebrity in the past. on this cruise the ports of call were a mixed bag - some good, many not very good. the food in the sit down restaurant was pretty awful. ended up eating spagetti and meatballs in the buffet restuarant way to often. the shore excursions were way over priced for what they offered. I hope celebrity has not changed its business plan to cut as many corners as possible but this cruise had that feeling. I would not refer anyone to take this cruise. We had planned, based on previous experieces, to make celebrity our cruise line of choice but we have changed our mind based on this experience.
