Celebrity Solstice

July 2016 - Celebrity Solstice to Alaska - Inside Passage

Great cruise to Alaska!

We have cruised many times including transatlantic as well as Caribbean.  This cruise will go down as one of our most memorable.

 

First time on Celebrity and loved it.  Our balcony room was spacious and the ship was beautiful.   Itinery and shore excursions were all first rate.  We liked Celebrity so much we booked a cruise for next year while on board.  Food was excellent in the general dining room so we never went to a specialty restaurant. 

 

Alaska is a destination we had on our bucket list and is a cruise every cruiser should do at least once.  It is very different and very memorable.

Norwegian Jade

November 2015 - Norwegian Jade to Caribbean - Western

Worst Cruise Ever!

Never again will I sail with Norwegian.  This was easily the worst cruise of the 15+ cruises I have taken.  Here are the specifics:

 

*  Balcony room extreamly small.  Had to sit on the commode with my legs outside the door to accommodate.

*  Breakfast room service did not include any fresh fruit, yogurt, bagels, eggs.  Only coffee and a few pastries offered.

*  Cruise was totally understaffed.  Waited 20 minutes at bar for a drink.  Saw bartenders arguing with each other.

*  Overall staff rude and not friendly.

*  Food in main dining room marginal at best.

*  At the "Martini Bar" they had few martini glasses.  Served Martini's in water glasses.  After dinner drinks such as Gran Marnier also served in water glasses.

*  Was not given final bill at the end of the cruise.  Had to specifically ask for it after cruise.

*  Dirty pool towels removed by cabin staff and not replaced.  Towel service by pool would not provide additional towels.

*  Departure unorganized with passengers arguing with staff.

 

In speaking with other passengers, we found out we were not alone with our dissatisfaction. Long time Norwegian passengers said it was the worst cruise they had ever been on with Norwegian.

Carnival Triumph

September 2015 - Carnival Triumph to Caribbean - Western

Average trip

Triumph is an old ship.  Needs updating or to be put out of service.  Room stewards came to room to clean when we were on balcony having coffee...never announced themselves.  Casino service getting a drink  while playing table very hard to get even after repeated requests. Sad
