Great Cruise with an Aurora Bonus

Having already done the coastal voyage I wanted to do something a bit different and this trip from Dover fitted the bill. I loved the ship, cabin was ideal, the exhibition crew put on interesting events every day and streamed the events to the cabin. Excellent Covid protocols and then 3 nights of stunning aurora. Great food so highly recommended. Really good process for boarding in Dover and it ...

Fred Olsen not what it was

My wife and I started cruising over 20 years ago and our favourite line was Fred Olsen. No longer. Since Fred jr. took over, cruise prices doubled; there is far better value elsewhere. It cost us £56 on this cruise for the Maitre D' to tap a few keys on his computer to alter our dining time ( I have medical issues and cannot dine late ) A one litre bottle of water in the cabin costs a ridiculous ...

Review for Spirit of Adventure to Baltic Sea

We chose to go with Saga for the first time because of their 2 new 'Boutique' ships which are more the size we like (50k tonnes and under 1000 passengers). For a new vessel the Spirit of Adventure lacks any 'WOW' factor, everything is just 'nice'. It's best feature is the stern of the ship with a winding staircase that runs down from deck 12 (outside Veranda) to deck 6 with seating and standing ...

Just about acceptable - but badly managed and not very good value

Review for Bolette to Baltic Sea

This would have been an awkward cruise anyway - with reduced passenger numbers due to covid precautions and with half of the original destinations - most of those on the strength of which we'd originally booked this holiday - cancelled, plus an unfortunate breakdown and delay at Belfast further complicating schedules. What turned awkwardness into, at times, full-throated disaster was the ship's ...

A 'new' ship with a comfortingly familiar Fred Olsen experience

Like many others aboard, we were just happy to get back to sea after the lockdowns and eager to sample one of the new Fred ships. We were quite influenced by the stimulating social media presence that the company had achieved during the pandemic - sad though it may sound, the quizzes was one of the highlights of our week! We had travelled on P&O's Iona's maiden voyage a few days earlier which ...

A most relaxing and enjoyable cruise

We had an amazing cruise with Fred Olsen family. The staff were very attentive and the service was excellent. The bathroom areas were kept immaculately clean. The ship only had 60% occupancy due to COVID-19 so it was more quiet than usual. There were plenty of activities which were I think were designed for the older cruise-goer. There were no children on board. We were in a basic cabin on the ...

Wonderful experience

Many years ago whilst holidaying in Rhodes my husband spotted a masted sailing ship and yearned for years to be able to enjoy and adventure on one. Then two years ago we spotted a sailing ship in Kotor, this time we could see the decks and once again felt jealousy for the people enjoying such a special adventure. So when my daughter (travel agent) told us that Golden Horizon was doing U.K. ...

First time with Fred Olsen and got a great saver deal. Sailing from Dover was so easy with excellent parking arrangements at the port and easy embarkation. This smaller ship is has a very friendly crew and staff. Excellent shows and entertainers in the bars and loung areas. Drinks and spa treatments are a reasonable price - much better than any other cruise line I have been with. Five course ...

Saga Cruises have been on my radar for a while now. I have visited Saga Sapphire and overnighted on Saga Pearl II but my friend and I both felt we weren’t ready for the Saga experience at the time. However, the launch of the first of their two brand new ships, coupled with some health issues that forced the cancellation of a very long cruise earlier in the year, saw me booking a 10 night cruise on ...

We've cruised the Mediterranean twice before and have been on many other cruises. We chose this trip because friends were going and we had loved visiting Spain, France and Italy in the past. We had never been to Gibraltar and really knew very little about it - yet it turned out to be our favorite port! We upgraded to a Balcony room so we could enjoy quiet time to ourselves - turned out to be ...
