Default Re: what was your worst cruise?

We are going on the Radiance for the 2nd time...May I ask what was so bad???

We have never had a bad cruise just bad cruise ship and that would be the NCL Star. It was brand new and looked so beautiful. Everything was great until the first night we tried to sleep. Our balcony cabin was midship but it creaked alllllll night long. It sounded like someone was trying to come in. Even my then 16 y/o son, who can sleep on and thru any noise, had trouble sleeping. When we inquired about it the next morning, other cruisers said they experienced the same thing. It was explained to us that the ship had the new kind of "floating ceiling" from deck to deck for more "give" while moving. Then we noticed the creaking everywhere; theater, dining room, library. The other thing that was bad was they charged everyone $10 to see the Hollywood "legend" star, Marty Allen. His show was boycotted. This was also our first experience of anytime dining and we did not like it. The wait staff were like robots, not personable or smiling at all and since you didn't have the same one each night, no one got to know you and your likes. Positive: the beds were heavenly for what little sleep we did get.
