vermont's Past Cruises

Empress of the Seas

August 2016 - Western Caribbean Cruise on Empress of the Seas

Noordam

March 2016 - 13 Night Australia & New Zealand (Auckland To Sydney) Cruise on Noordam

Good but not the Best

The food was good but not always great.

The service was excellent.

Spa Service was wonderful

The entertainment was good but not great

We crossed from New Zealand to Australia in a Gale; the waves were 11-30 feet; it was exciting and a little scary; frequent weather updates were not reassuring.

Large Library; Cooking classes; Computer and Camera classes; Mixology classes

Supplied over-priced medically needed distilled water and then slapped a bar surcharge on it to add insult to injury.  Of the 7 other cruise lines that I have been on, none charged for distilled water.

Lido deck closed regularly, had limited hours, and limited coffee access

They kept laying new carpet in major hallways (at night) but I expected this kind of work to be done when ship is docked for "repairs"

5 ports on the first five days of the cruise left me exhausted; I will look at this more carefully in the future.  If it were not listed on the elevator floor, I truly wouldn't know what day it was.

Room Service was great.

Brilliance of the Seas

September 2015 - 15 Night Transatlantic Westbound (Harwich To Boston) Cruise on Brilliance of the Seas

Long time on board

The cabin was the best I have ever been in, and it was an inside cabin, deck 7.

Everything else was mediocre.  Nothing bad, just not great. Amused over sale of Baltic items on a cruise that never went near the Baltics. For a long Ocean cruise, only had one day of rough seas and that was weather related. All but one shore excursion were great.  Had a fun time on the cruise and there was plenty to do. Cruise Director was fun, but food and much of the entertainment was ok but not outstanding.  This is the longest cruise I have been on so maybe this is common on longer cruises.
