We feel ripped off!

we feel absolutely cheated out of our holiday money. We are battling farmers who have saved our money for what was to be the holiday of our lifetime. Firstly, there was an 18% service charge on everything we bought, then there was a place on the invoice for a tip. A few times it was underlined. A cheap bottle of wine we bought in a supermarket in Santiago for $4.50 was on the menu for $35 + 18% ...

From Valparaiso to Fort Lauderdale is a very long way both in distance and in culture. The journey was fascinating. Embarkation was swift but access to staterooms was delayed due to extensive cleaning following an outbreak of intestinal illness. For the whole of the trip there was constant cleaning by the staff and ubiquitous hand gel. We visited Arica - there is a big hill in the middle of town, ...

Not a 6-star cruise by any means

I requested a refund for the cruise we just took on 12/20/2014 - 1/7/2015. Silversea clearly cheated their naive customers, who paid for the 6-star cruise but received a 2-star experience at best. - The food was terrible, and they ran out of even of that in the end. There were hardly any fruit, stale nuts and terrible frozen fish. -The TV was not working properly. - The new in-residence ...

My wife and I, along with five other couples recently completed a 14 night cruise from Valparaiso, Chile to Miami via the Panama Canal. The purpose of this cruise was to celebrate my 70th birthday. This was our 18th cruise and we have Elite status. I mention this so that others realize we are not new to this game. We flew into Santiago four days early, staying at the Marriott hotel, in order to ...

I was unfortunate enough to pay for a 14 day Cruise on the Celebrity Infinity from Santiago Chile to Miami via the Panama Canal. I am a solo Male Passenger, 47 years old, with 27 years of Hospitality Management skills under my belt, and a total of 30 years of hospitality experience. I literally could write a book on how tragic this cruise ended up being, but I will stick to the larger broad ...

Our first Cruise on one of the Millennium Class Ships. I can see why they at a Favorite of veteran Cruisers. They have an Uncrowded feel and a very Understated Décor. The Great Service we have always enjoyed on Celebrity Ships and outstanding Food and Entertainment. We were traveling with Friends and Relatives some of who were on their First Cruise. For once we never used any of the Cruise ...

Too many people for this size of ship. Do not book this ship unless you enjoy pushing and shoving! We cruised on the Century at Christmas and the experience was totally different. Lifeboat drill- Too crowded to see/hear instructions. Many people tried to leave the claustrophic environment. Why doesn't Celebrity put this information on the stateroom TV and make checking that you've watched it a ...

This was the second leg of our back to back South American cruise. Since we made friends of many of the crew this turned out to be one of the best two weeks possible on any cruise ship. We had the opportunity to get off the ship in Valpariso for a half day tour. The weather was perfect and we used the ship tour. It was a little overpriced but well organized. We opted to not go to Santiago on an ...

This was our tenth cruise but first on Celebrity, we are a couple in our forties who love cruising and love being on holiday, so find it hard to find any faults.Pre Cruise: We flew from Dublin via Madrid to Santiago, the first leg was with Iberia, their service was bad and we had a three hour delay, the second leg was with LAN who were fantastic, I'd definitely fly with them again. We stayed one ...

Veranda Cabin on the 8th deck. Captains Club member There is a problem with the air conditioning on the ship. Either that or they are cutting the AC use to save money. The cabin area hallways are hot. I even thought the AC was shut down in the middle of the night. Everyone I spoke to woke up in the night, hot and thirsty. The dining room was hot, the buffet area hot, and most public areas were ...
