Are the Desire cruises worth it?

Postby MikeShell » Wed Jun 05, 2019 4:08 pm

Good day all..
My wife and I were about to book the May 2020 cruise but then saw a few negative reports. The pool not being heated, entertainment not great and basically the cruises are not as good as the resorts. We were at Pearl last year and loved it! The cruise is very pricey so does anyone have positive remarks about them?
All comments are appreciated!

I've talked to some people that have gone on some of the other ones, Bliss perhaps. They liked it and it way less $$$ than the Desire ones. They did say it was a totally different experience than Desire, just on numbers alone.

Sorry, “ just on numbers alone”

Do you mean 100 couples at resort vs 1000 couples at resort ?

Yes, they said with that many people, it made for a different type of experience. For example they met a couple at the bar, didn't exchange room numbers and never saw them again, that kind of thing. They said it was easy to get lost in the crowd given the higher numbers so they had to approach things differently than if at Desire.

Keep in mind that you cannot be nude (in public) when in port, and you can only "play" in certain areas on the ship.

With those restrictions, it's not for us. We'll continue to go to DP or DRM where we have more freedom.
