Default Ship reviews

There seems to be a lack of recent reviews on this website. Hopefully those who have cruised in the last few months can take the time to write a review and submit it. I know that I for one really enjoy reading the reviews and experiences others have while cruising.Please submit reviews. Thanks

I have stopped writing reviews. I prefer to put them on my own blog and at least I own them. However I'm willing to answer any questions about cruises I've been on.

I read a recent review of the explorer OTS and it was awful, these people didn't like anything about the ship or at least it seemed that way. The way I see it is, yes a review is great, but think about the rest of us that have booked already on this ship, now we are stuck with a vision of the ship that stinks. I think reviews should be balanced, and if the vac and ship was that bad, well I guess we know what to expect.
Like most things in life there has to be some good................I think they liked the ice skating.
When I come back I too will write a review.:razz:

While we really like getting cruise reviews from users,the truth is the majority of them that get written end up being negative reviews. I think the problem is that only people who have complaints go to the trouble to write about a cruise.


We also get a large number of people just writing very short, one or two sentence reviews, and these don't really do us very much good.

I would like to come up with some kind of incentive for people to write reviews such as a free cruise guide or something similar to that.

It would be easy to just cut your review from your blog and paste it on the review on this site for those of us who don't have access to your blog. I know some of us would really appreciate it.

I know what you mean-we're booked on Explorer in Jan. I just spent about an hour reading a lot of reviews on many sites and by far the consensus on Explorer is good Paul makes a good point-a lot of cruisers only write reviews when they didn't like the cruise-for whatever reason. Some folks just aren't happy campers-last year on the Mercury we kept running into a couple who looked like they were mad at the world. Complained about EVERYTHING-including each other:-x C'est la vie.

The last few times I've tried to do it on the CM form, it wouldn't take it. Too long I believe. I've posted more on the threads than in the official review section--too difficult to submit IMHO.
