Not to be of any trouble to the chat
But I cannot agree more with you trvlPro
The review they have about the adventure of the seas, the one with the photos
is suppose to be the best of their reviews but in a way I found it offensive and wayyyyyyy out of date (2001).
Many of you are considering visiting this Cruise ship or my beautiful Island and because of people like that, we will lose the opportunity to have many of you as our guest.
I can understand her frustration about a few things but here is my favorite part:
“The worst complaint or more of an "irritation" - that we experienced on both ships - was the population of the Spanish only speaking people on board. The people from Puerto Rico received incredible bargains for these cruises and brought whole families. It was one big party for them and many of these families acted like they were the only ones on board. Everyone deserves to have a good time, but it was very hard to move through or around large groups of people as they congregated in walk through areas. They didn't seem to care that they were always in the way of others, and they didn't understand the phrase "excuse me" or they wouldn't hear it until we said it the 3rd or 4th time because they were always talking so loudly to one another. It was a little bit of a pain at the beginning, but by the end of cruise, it was extremely annoying! It was uncommon to find ourselves on an elevator with anyone who spoke English and on several of the occasions when we were with English speaking people, they commented that they were happy to be on an elevator that was not jammed with loud Latino conversation. I was relieved to know that we were not the only ones to feel this way.“
Let me clarify;
We don’t receive any incredible bargains, that’s a myth, we are only lucky because we don’t pay extra for the airplanes tickets, mostly like the people that live on Florida since they live there, there is no need for airplanes ticket on most cases and we can buy better last minute deals.
Also the first language on the island is Spanish but as you see 90% of the island can understand English only problem we are not so fluently talking in English so is difficult sometimes for us.
also we don’t get any special or like I have read on a few reviews “half price on excursions” that’s not true and if that’s true please let me know where I have to buy them because is been years I have been losing money then…
IF you are looking for a good review about the AOS, cruise reviews will be the first on Google with pics and many people will think were crazy animals and will not even consider the island.
So I can understand the point of updating cruisereviews.com, but if they have kept a review like that for 7 years then I will stay better on cruise-chat is way better, more realistic, more interactive and updated than cruisereviews.com will ever be…
