Cruise From Hell

Jan 6th, 2020

Horrible experience and the cruise from hell. We were promised on board credit... never received it. No porters to help with luggage. Bugs in cabin. Horrible, tasteless food... so much so I lost weight on the vacation because I refused to eat the slop they served. Watered down drinks. Lack luster entertainment.

First Cruise Experience

Jan 6th, 2020

I'm new to this cruising thing, and while we aren't booking another for the forseeable future I'm open to going again. We'd need a bigger boat with more things to do on the days at sea, for sure. Thanks for an enjoyable time, RC! I'll miss your french fries.
