Norwegian Epic

October 2016 - Norwegian Epic to Europe - Mediterranean

could have been better

overall a nice cruise but, there is room for improvement with the service. Check in Barcelona was the pits and check out Cape Canaveral followed in the same foordsteps. What a mess!! waiting time unbearable.

Supervisor at the restaurants need to be trained to do a better job. Tables were loadet with dirty dishes and all supervisors pretend they don't see.

When I thought you could not make the food worse in quality and taste I was wrong. This ship has proofed it can be done.You should think twice to cruise with NCL.

Carnival Valor

November 2015 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Eastern

Lousy service, bad food

we have done plenty of cruises with CARNIVAL but this one was NOT up to par. Some Employees think we owe them. Restaurant waiter were not well trained, next course came when you were not even finished with the prior course. Food more or less pushed on the table. Food was partly far under Quality!! Shows 3rd ranking.

Guest service has a big "chip on the shoulder" they think you disturb them in their holiday mood!  Shows low quality and more for 16 year olds then for grown ups!

Let's face it - she is an old lady and needs a complete makeover!

Next cruise certainly not with CARNIVAL>   Bert & Elena

Vision of the Seas

April 2015 - Vision of the Seas to Transatlantic

RC has been much better,lost some of its luster

The check -in in Tampa was not very pleasant and very, very slow!

Food lower in quality, menue differed from reality, shows were low grade.

Positive: friendly personnel, clean, but very small cabin, service over all OK

Internet much to slow even in port! maybe it is only a money making machine.

Norwegian Jade

January 2014 - Norwegian Jade to Europe - Mediterranean

Nice cruise but, we had better cruises

we have done more than 100 cruises so far and had many with NCL While the  overall cruise was OK,food in choice and quality has been lowered again.Almost every day the same food gets a bit boring after a few days.Pay restaurants are excellent in quality and service.

The rest is as everywhere,nice cabin,friendly personell,good shows,some of the ports were just boring,like Mallorca,Olympia,Toulon

Yes we will cruise again but,very selectiv.

Celebrity Century

March 2013 - Celebrity Century to Hawaii

nice cruise,but could be better in details

2x5 days at sea is far too much.To go to Ensenada at 8pm and leave at 11.30pm is the biggest joke I have ever seen.Who in a sane mind goes into a Mexican city by night! While the overall cruise was OK,the ship shows its age in every corner.Buffet often cold food,refill took an eternity while the supervisors were bystanding idling.Last 3-4 days some food items were not available anymore.Cheap shot!Don't expect it from an "upscale ship". Somehow disappointed from Celebrity.

experienced's Tips

Vision of the Seas Vision of the Seas - make sure the "white shirts" are doing their job instead of just hanging around
Carnival Valor Carnival Valor - no tips and no recommendation. You are better off with other ships this ship needs a complete overhaul it is a bit depressing with all the dark wood. The cafeteria is an example of very bad taste in decoration.
Vision of the Seas Vision of the Seas - you can take it if the "price is right" there are better ships. However, the service was good and personnel very attentive. We had, as diamond+ members, at the same day 2 deliveries of food to the cabin, why can't that be on different days? Same goes for invitations - 2 in one day!
Norwegian Jade Norwegian Jade - Have breakfast in the italien restaurant and you have more peace!
Celebrity Century Celebrity Century - again,while the overall cruise was OK I would not recommend this cruise.For a so called "upscale" from RCL ships, it does not delliver!
