Worst cruise of my life

It's difficult to know where to start, there was so much not right about this 12 day experience. 1)On arrival we discovered that to have internet access for the trip was £110 per head. There are over 1,200 passengers, so do the maths. I do not mind paying a reasonable sum for what the service cost. I am certain it does not cost Ambassador £120,000 a week. I refused to pay and used free internet ...

We went with ambassador cruise line because of the itinerary British isles. Embarkation was ok. 1st impressions in the cabin very dated,had lots of hanging space was ok. The public areas bars and coffee place were good. The Buffett food was very poor,we had Sunday lunch the rib of beef you could have soled your shoes. Lady at the counter complained that the Yorkshire puddings had ...

Having been on several cruises, and reading adverse comments about Ambience, we were apprehensive. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our Norway cruise. We had a spacious outside cabin, that had numerous drawers and wardrobe. The mattress was comfortable, and the shower was superb. The entertainment with very very good singers and dancers, and was better than most of the known cruise ships we ...

OUR WORST CRUISE EVER!!

My wife and I did The British Isles & Ireland Cruise in August 2022 and without doubt have classed it as the worst cruise we have ever had the misfortune to go on. The ship was supposedly refitted prior to its first sailing in April 2022 but the only signs of a ‘refit’ were the changing of all thing’s plastic to the new corporate colour of purple. Past C&M cruisers felt that it was essentially the ...

Thoroughly Enjoyable Cruise Around The UK

Our only real gripe was the embarkation and lack of information from the staff. It appears that we all got held up as they were waiting for late arriving coaches to appear before they would book us in. Parking - could it be closer? Really convenient. Staff onboard were polite and very approachable. Drinks very reasonably priced, we didn't have a package, not needed. The cabin was ...

Nationwide debit cards are a problem

The cruise was good overall but payment by my Nationwide debit was an issue that impacted the cruise. I was on a cruise 6 weeks ago and paid the shipboard account with my N/W debit card without problems. I registered it for this cruise but 7 days into the 12 day cruise I received a letter advising that they were unable to collect payment. I rang Nationwide but they wouldn't pay the account unless ...

An Excellent Itinerary, but a Poor Quality Cruise

We decided to try this cruise line as the itinerary was excellent, visiting some very unusual ports in Greenland over a 21 night cruise. We embarked from Tilbury and booked the official car park. As we were told by head office, we went to the terminal and dropped off luggage (and me with hand luggage, cameras, binoculars etc.) whilst DH followed signs to the car park from there. and returned by ...

We chose to go on the cruise around the UK as we would visit island groups hitherto unexplored - the Orkneys, Mull and the Scilly Isles. The first stop was Edinburgh and we were excited to have the perfect opportunity to meet up with old friends who lived there. However there was a problem with the waste ecosystem and we were stranded at Tilbury for more than 24 hours awaiting a spare part. ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We chose this cruise due to the fact it was presented has the Queens Jubilee celebrations and British Isles cruise . This was not the case we are so very disappointed with this due to the face there was no celebration towards the queen. so very disrespectful. Out for what they could get from the consumer. We were 25 hours delayed in setting sail to begin with due to a fault in the water ...

Good in many ways but ship is old & administration very poor. Do not rely on regional coach transfers,

We booked for the itinerary and the offer of a local pick- up & transfer from Torquay to Tilbury. About 2 weeks before departure I rang to check timings and was told it was cancelled & we had to go to London. Not easy as I have heart condition and cannot deal with luggage so my wife has to do everything & we then incurred costs of over £300 for overnight stay & transport as you cannot get from ...
