Cruise Ship with a Bus Tour

Review for Le Champlain to Europe - British Isles & Western

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because of the destination of the Northern Scottish Islands. In addition, they in theory had a strong Covid protocol. The ship, the cabin, the crew, the food were all ok. Clear limitations because of the size of the ship. Less flexibility in dining, entertainment etc. but we expected that. What stunned us was that the ship was half booked wit a bus tour company called ...

Bonjour Ponant

First, let me say that I really enjoyed my 9 day cruise on Ponant’s Le Jacques Cartier. The trip started in Istanbul and ended in Venice. It’s a luxury cruise line and much to my liking, it caters to the small passenger market. I believe there were 164 or so passengers on the cruise. So it creates an environment that caters to meeting people and moving about at an easy pace. None of the facilities ...

We chose our cruise on a relatively short notice (two weeks before) and were positiviely surprised. We liked the intimacy of the ship a lot (you get to know all the staff and especially the waiters started to remeber our preferred drinks quite soon). We were somewhat worried because we read in other critics about Ponant that they are more focused on French people, but we thought to give the ...

An exploration up the western Greenland coast from Iceland.

We chose this cruise as we were interested in Greenland and it's communities. To some degree we also wanted to see the artic wilderness and glaciers and get an appreciation for the damage that global warming is doing.to these sensitive environments. Fridtjof Nansen is an excellent ship being only a couple of years old. The size of the vessel (500 passengers) makes it a relatively intimate ...

We choose this cruise for two reasons, we thought after covid a cruise around the Uk would be the safest and also it went to many destinations we have never been too. As a wheelchair user I was not expecting to leave the ship unless we were moored at port ( just three) but no the expedition team got me on every Zodiac and landing to places like Iona , Tresco to name but a few . They were ...

This cruise line should stick to ferry service ! Having recently been to Antartica on Swan Hallenic we were expecting much of the same on this Arctic Cruise. We were sadly mistaken for sure, Surly staff in general, they seemed very over worked, except for the bar staff. Nickel and diming for most everything, for example, if you were late for lunch and ate in the restaurant that was ...

Wanted to see Norway and the Midnight Sun so chose this trip. Being honest the ship is a little tired but to be fair we were given a credit to reflect this. Stayed in the lowest level of suite which proved to be a good choice as the lower grade cabins did look a little small. Only comment on the suite was, although there was good wardrobe space, there were no hooks to hang outdoor wear on ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

This expedition cruise appealed to us as it was informal, the pricing was clear and the ship visited a wide range of locations, many never visited by other cruises. In addition there was the option to be as active and adventurous as you liked; kayaking, zodiac cruises, science activities, art and crafts, hiking and just being a tourist were all on offer. Three very good meals a day with ...

Some brilliant birdwatching, walking and history

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this to visit some of the remote island on the west side of the Uk. We had great weather which is not always the case. I was not impressed with the motorised dinghies for going ashore which were quite uncomfortable particularly when the sea was choppy. However we visited some brilliant place. Rathlin island and St Kilda were the best. The ship is small and there were only 400 ...

We, 2 senior citizens, chose this cruise primarily because of the itinerary, i.e. visits to Rathlin Island, Iona, St. Kilda and the Isles of Scilly, amongst others. We had to wear masks on board in most enclosed areas, but these were provided free of charge. The MS Maud is a fairly small ship, so it was very easy to learn the layout and get around the ship. This was our first Hurtigruten ...
