First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

Overall we had a wonderful trip on board Ambience visiting the Norwegian Fjords. This was only the second sailing for the ship so we were apprehensive arriving but had a lovely time. We embarked the ship very easily and our cabin was available straight away which was a lovely surprise. We travelled by train to the terminal and there was a free shuttle bus which dropped us off at the terminal ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Norwegian Fjord beauty in the Spring was my initial choice but it was also a trial cruise for me as a single. The crew organised 3 meetings onboard for singles and this was very helpful. However as an over 50’s cruise everyone I met was very open and friendly. The crew were very friendly and efficient and this is a strength that I praise Ambassador for. There were teething problems on the ship ...

An amazing sailing ship cruise

This cruise, long anticipated after so long a lock down , was simply glorious. We have cruised several hundred times over 40 years, but this sailing ship cruise on Golden Horizon was exceptional in so many ways. We’d planned to be on the original inaugural cruse, but as it was cancelled we chose a Harwich round trip during Cowes week, a 11 day trip. As we joined the 5 masts towered over the port, ...

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

I had, for a long time, a desire to cruise with Hurtigruten and when they offered showcase cruises from UK I booked the first one sailing from Tilbury. The onboard experience surpassed what I had imagined. Embarking was uncomplicated and fairly speedy, considering everyone had to be tested for the Covid 19 virus before boarding the ship. I favoured the idea of checking in on the allocated ...

Viking Rep met us at the plane and helped us navigate Heathrow. Because we had a pre-cruise package, we were handed off to a limo driver, who was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay in London at the Conrad St. James. The ship was all we hoped for, and more, We usually had breakfast and lunch at the World Cafe, because of its convenience, variety, and quality. Food and beverages were ...

Disappointing experience on favorite cruise line

Review for Silver Cloud Expedition to Europe - British Isles & Western

I chose this expedition because of its’ interesting ports of call and its departure under the Tower Bridge. (Magic!) A bonus was finding ourselves in the Channel on the eve of D Day and in Guernsey on D Day. Unfortunately a big storm came in that night and we had to miss 3 or 4 of the next ports. It was an expedition cruise and this is to be expected. The ship has been updated beautifully - ...

We took the 12 night British Isles trip in June. This is probably my eighth cruise and first on Princess. The good is that the ship was nice, the staff was hard working, the food was always decent to very good with a large and changing selection on the buffet. The pre-destination talks were informative and we caught a couple of art lectures that were very interesting. That said, the activities ...

We booked a cruise from London to Iceland to visit the west coast of Ireland and NW Scotland in September 2018. What they DON'T tell you is that 7/10 destinations require tenders to get you ashore. That is impossible in the constant rough weather we experienced and we ended up going to Dublin,Belfast and Glasgow, where we got off the ship and came home. Of course Silver Sea can't guarantee ...

We were celebrating a special birthday for my wife. We loved the itinerary and made plans with dear friends for the celebration. Before we reached to first evening at sea the captain announced that we were passing our first port because of stormy weather and proceeding to our second scheduled port. The weather was so severe that day and night that my wife became extremely seasick, was nauseous, ...
