Very poor quality food, understaffed and no hygiene. Understaffed.

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Carnival Pride

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Unfortunately food has to be great, with most days, 3 meals a day on board they have to get it right. Carnival Pride, Iceland Trip, August 20, 2023, have failed miserably. This is our 9th Carnival cruise, another booked for December and our 18th cruise overall. We have not encountered worse food, and guests everywhere complaining. Doesn’t seem to matter what food it is, complaints ...

This was my first cruise with Saga but I have done several other cruises with various cruise lines. Having taken into account all that is included on a Saga cruise it was the best deal for me as a solo traveller. The door to door chauffeur service to Dover was a good start to what proved to be a memorable holiday. Insurance was included, tips, drinks package, Wifi, four excursions, speciality ...

Fabulous expedition cruise

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Maud

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This cruise was absolutely fantastic. The staff were friendly and helpful. The expeditions were super well organised and extremely interesting. The expedition crew were so knowledgeable, informative, funny and inspiring! Best science lessons I have ever experienced! Field trips are so exciting - for any age! The underwater drone was fascinating especially when looking at shipwrecks and the sea ...

Having travelling with Hurtigruten previously and had an excellent experience, we chose them for the Northern Lights trip. The trip was excellent with different excursions and a a superb expedition team making the whole trip informative, inspiring and interesting. During the visit we managed to see the Northern Lights as well as stunning scenery, whales and other wildlife and go on ...

A Fantastic Expedition, not a Cruise

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Maud

MikeS19
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was a three week Expedition Voyage into the Arctic and Svalbard. We were most certainly not on a cruise being 'entertained'. It was a voyage of discovery, where every day we learnt something new. The itinerary changed on an almost daily basis, due to the weather, and other external factors. But the expedition team coped well with the frequent need to re-plan landings. Some days we ...

An incredible experience!

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Maud

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We chose Hurtigruten because we'd never go on a " traditional" cruise. Huge ships, thousands of people, casinos, theatres, dancing, loud music, bingo, posh clothes for dinner is just not us. We do like walking, exploring new places, the natural world, photography. I'm also not keen on flying, so when we found that Hurtigruten now has MS Maud based in Dover, running trips around western ...

“Expedition” cruise from Dover to Svalbard

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Maud

banstead
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

If anyone is thinking of booking the same trip I thought I’d set out our views, just in case it helps someone decide whether to take it or not. I know some people loved it but I also know my views were shared by some other passengers on the trip. I will explain the “expedition” later, but following 2 covid cancelled MS Spitzbergen trips (Svalbard and Iceland) we booked the September 2022 ...

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Spirit Of Discovery

twotravellersLondon
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because we have travelled with SAGA before, know and trust the company and because we very much wanted to enjoy the experience of seeing Greenland again in a degree of comfort. Boarding was smooth and efficient at Dover, although it took about an hour... but for 50 mins of that time we were in the luxury our chauffeur driven SUV. The welcome on board the Spirit of Discovery ...

Great ship, great itinerary and great weather!

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Spirit Of Discovery

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was our first time on any Saga holiday and we both agreed that 'Spirit of Discovery' and the whole Saga experience is impressive. And the voyage was pretty spectacular too. We had a ‘Standard Twin’ cabin which was more than adequate. We didn’t like not being able to switch off the ‘night light’ in the bathroom, or the lack of a settee, but it was very quiet with soft-closing drawers and more ...

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Braemar

Donkeylady
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The ship was fantastic, small but very friendly as you got to know lots of people. The food the entertainment and all the staff were fantastic. This was my first cruise and I worried that there may not be enough to do.What a joke we ended up running from deck to deck in order to do all the quizzes, table tennis and every thing else we wanted to do. The out door pool even though we were in the ...
