Turned out just fine, Dubai to Dubai Feb 16 by Bigred

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

We had a good and interesting time even though the Corona virus threatened the trip. We were fortunate to stay just ahead of major itinerary changes and got to see what we wanted to see. There was also needed time for relaxation and on board lectures.

Eventful Indian Odyssey by bbross

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Nautica / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

We loved the cruise though the ship did not complete its itinerary. NCL and Oceania did the right thing by diverting us to Dubai and canceling their Asian itineraries. Muscat was great!

Amazing destinations during coronavirus concerns. by modegirl79

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Quantum of the Seas / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Like many people, I did not want to take this cruise due to coronavirus concerns. RC was unwilling to budge to allow people get credit for a different cruise - unless they were from China or Hong Kong since they were not allowed to sail. TOTALLY UNFAIR BUSINESS PRACTICE!!! Look at the cruise ships that were quarantined - that could have been the Quantum! Thankfully, it was not. Overall, we thought the Quantum was a nice, modern ship. The passengers formed a real melting pot, with people from ALL over the world. The crew was doing all they could to make passengers feel comfortable and safe. They can only do so much, after all. The cruise itself was not the highlight of our trip, but the destinations were - especially Singapore and Phuket. Willing to give RC another chance in the future, but might invest extra cash in one of those "cancel for any reason" travel insurance plans just in case chaos ensues.

Change in itinerary but great cruise nevertheless! by eeckert

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Constellation / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

As mentioned earlier, celebrity cancelled the ports of Thailand and Singapore due to the coronavirus. The manner in which they handled this needs to be commended. They assisted in changing the passengers travel arrangements at their expense. The phone lines and internet were open for the remainder of the cruise (4 days) and everyone was provided with an onboard credit for the day that was missed in Thailand. The staff went out of their way to make the balance of the cruise as enjoyable as the beginning of the cruise. No complaints. Now have a reason to fly back to see Singapore another time ;)

Very restricted positive comments. by khayashida

Ship: MSC Bellissima / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Ship is new and clean, however staffs (except dining room staff) are not passenger friendly. Just ignore your existence.

Decent cruise experience. Nice ship and friendly staff with a few pitfalls by Solido

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: MSC Lirica / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

The MSC Lirica is not a top-end ship - it may be best categorized as lower mid-end. With that in mind, the fares are excellent for the ship's amenities and itinerary. The food is decent, the service is varied but generally friendly, the entertainment (especially if you love to dance and your concert tastes lean towards classical music) excellent. Much of the clientele are European. I would recommended it if this is what your budget allows for. Great cruising experience on a budget.

One of our best cruises! My wife, who was hesitant about signing up for this cruise, said she would do it again in a heartbeat!

Arround the Horn by Puph2

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Nautica / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

The cruise schedule does not provide for optimum wildlife viewing, arriving late morning in most cases. This particular cruise was further impacted due to bad weather, causing delayed embarkation and departure from Capetown, an abbreviated stay in Walvis Bay, by-passing Port Elizabeth. The stop in Maputo was a wasted day that could have been better spent as an overnight in two of the other ports.

Dubai cruise by Jojolinks

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Very slow cruising at 8 knots. Distances were very close so the ship just stopped and waited for the sun to rise.

First trip to Southeast Asia by sdolbert

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Jade / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

If you haven't been to SE Asia, this is a great introduction. Each port is SO different and worth visiting.

Great Ports, mediocre ship and staff by fribaudo

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Jade / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Trip of a lifetime in a poor excuse for a cruise ship, and a poor excuse for a mini suite. Excursion staff are a joke

A sad ending due to the virus by rbernat6

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Queen Mary 2 / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Many ships understandably stopped going to China and Hong Kong. Cunard chose to eliminate every port in Asia. Other ships, even from the Carnival line, had no such problem. We know for sure that Seabourn Ovation, for one had people go ashore in Port Klang. MSC Splendida, with friends onboard, began in Singapore. I can't fault Cunard's decision to be overly cautious and the fact that no virus cases occurred, is a good thing. But despite whatever financial hardship this has caused the company, the passengers (like myself) who made and cancelled several return trips home from different ports and lost the entire payment for a Singapore hotel remain distressed and hurt financially as well as missing ports that were one of the reasons for taking this cruise in the first place. Some compensation is deserved based on the fact that Cunard chose to forgo many ports and many others did not.

Interesting African Cruise by jgs1jgs2

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Nautica / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

The cruise was good, although every time I moved my arm I was in pain. At least the doctor on ship X-rayed and let me know it was not broken. He gave me a sling which was a big help! I have an appointment with an orthopedic at his suggestion. There were too many days at sea due to the Namibia jaunt and the bad weather. The staff and food on Nautica made up for any complaints. It was a good trip which would have been more enjoyable had I not fallen.

Not too much to see and do at Destinations by 007CRUISER

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Destinations to visit not as interesting as european ports, or not as interesting as Caribbean ports of call.

Mostly good with a few frustrations by beckydurstenfel

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

The highlights: the embarkation, service, food, room, the ports and good shore excursion options which weren't too expensive, opportunities to dance, Zoomba class, interesting converstations at dinner, meeting people from all over the world. Not so good: the internet was terrible, poor communication between who we booked cruise with and the ship, disappointment at not being able to see the wildlife on Sri Ban Yas island since it was cancelled, and the disembarkation process which was terrible.
