Review for Ambience to Europe - British Isles & Western

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. ...

Jubilee around British islands cruise

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 ...

There was no cruise highlight as such just a mundane cruise around Great Britain.

We have just returned, 7th July 2022, from the AROUND GREAT BRITAIN JUBILEE CRUISE with Ambassador Cruises, aboard the newly refurbished AMBIENCE. I was in a very nice spacious cabin with two very comfortable single beds, probably one of the best cabins I’ve had for size, comfort and storage space. The balcony was rather narrow but wide enough to sit on but more importantly we were able to prop ...

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 ...

This supposed "Jubilee Cruise" around Great Britain was absolutely awful. It was pitched as celebrating the Jubilee but there was nothing on board to show that, other than a couple of ex-staffers promoting their books. The air conditioning did not work throughout the cruise so sleeping was terrible. The ship is supposedly refurbished but it is a ship that was being sent for scrap and was patched ...

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 ...

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, ...

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 ...
