Celebrity Europe - Different Type Passenger

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Dear Cruisecrazies Members:

Kindest Regards To All.

I am a new Member, ABoatNerd! I adore ships of all types (gee, hence my name) and my husband and I have been cruising since 1989. We generally sail Celebrity (although have been on all lines, including Oceania recently) and have of course seen many changes in the industry and on Celebrity in particular.

Question For Recent Celebrity patrons on European cruises - What is your opinion - Does Celebrity attract more Europeans on their cruises VS say Princess?

Why my question - 2 people in my office sailed the Med this year on Celebrity (they are very experienced cruisers and are able to compare Celebrity to the Golden Princess and the RCL ships) - They were NOT HAPPY with the impact of many patrons from Europe (ie very significant amounts of smoking and high levels of rudeness, butting in lines, loudness) which neither of them experienced on their Princess and RCL Med cruises.

I am not interested in being exposed to the experience they had - so I am attempting to increase the "sampling" from 2 people to many!

Be so kind to share your experience with myself and others on this board.

I thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Welcome to Cruise Crazies...ABoatNerd!

Your friends may have cruised in July or August when Europeans are on vacation. I've heard of others who had problems with the same issues of rudeness and smoking and also bringing miss- behaving children to late-seating dinners. I would avoid the mediterranean cruises in July and August, and you probably won't have as many Europeans. (No offence to Europeans; I know that not all are rude.)

I have heard that May and late September are good times to go. This is a cruise that I really want to do. I love the itinerary that the Millenium has had. I haven't checked lately, but I think it's still the same. It's Barcelona to Venice, and you sail the French Riviera and much of Italy, including Rome and the Amalfi coast and some of the Greek Isles, etc. I think I would book this cruise in mid to late May.
