2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Our first cruise with Fred Olsen for many years, the last was in 2006 (Boudicca) and before that 2004 (Black Prince), we enjoyed travelling on Braemar. The ship has a compact cosy feel about it and if like us you regard a cruise as a means of transport rather than a vacation in itself then we found it a pleasurable experience and recommendable.

My partner were on our first cruise.

Our cabin was on the No. 2 deck and was just on the water-line along with the cabins of ...

Lots of Good but Too Many Problems

Review for Crystal Serenity to France

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This review is written from the perspective of long-time cruisers on “mainstream” lines who decided to try a “luxury” line cruise aboard Crystal Serenity. The question with which we’d always wrestled was, “Is it worth it?” While the answer obviously depends in large part on how much you can and want to pay. However, for those who can spend the money, the question is whether they should. We would ...
