Stunning scenery

Review for Boudicca to Europe - British Isles & Western

Age 70s

We have been to Greenland before and wanted to repeat the experience as the scenery was stunning, not so much ice this time but still overwhelming. Boudicca has been refitted and the ambience is bright and cheerful but only on the surface (more later on this) The restaurants were all very nice and the staff were excellent. We did use the new outside grill and this was well worth the extra charge. ...

Age 80s

Our first Seabourn Cruise. We were on board for 45 days, Dover to Montreal via Scotland, Iceland, Greenland, Labrador. The Viking historical highlights were the Hvalsey church in Greenland and the Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland. Sadly, the St. Kilda landing was scrubbed due to inclement weather. The scenic highlights were the fjords and glaciers of Prince Christian Sound, and the cultural ...

Not for solo cruisers

Review for Saga Sapphire to Baltic Sea

Age 70s

This was my first solo cruise and I chose Saga because I'd heard such good things about how they look after you, especially if you are travelling alone. Not so! I have no idea how many solo passengers there were because nothing was organised for us apart from a short get together in the lounge at the beginning of the cruise which not everyone attended. Meal times were especially excruciating ...

Very rare to get on Easter island on this half world cruise

Review for Sea Princess to Australia & New Zealand

Age 70s

We chose this trip because it was going to interesting places like Easter island. Little did we know they almost ever get on at Easter Island and since it is a long way from anywhere we had ten sea days in a row. This was very annoying and I would encourage people to think twice before doing this trip. There were some good ports like Rejavik and New York and St. John’s and Charleston but the ...

Interesting UK and European ports and lovely traditional small ship

Age 70s

I am an active, adventurous mature adult who has seen the world on 56 cruises to date. I travel solo (with the constant wish that more cruise lines would offer better rates for solo travelers!). I love the sea and sailing, and probably enjoy the ride on the ship as much as the ports. I remember the “old” Holland America from the years before Carnival obtained it, and wish that this historic ...

Age 70s

We took this cruise as we were already booked on the previous cruise and it was reduced to a good price for Black Friday. The ports of Lisbon, Portimao and Leixoes (for Porto) also appealed. We upgraded our cabin on the first full day of the cruise to a terrace balcony cabin, which we liked a lot, though sadly due to poor weather we could not use the balcony as much as we would have liked on ...

Good in parts, but overall, adequate

Review for Boudicca to Europe - All

Age 70s

We choose this cruise because of the itinerary and the fact it sails from Dover, close to where we live. We had never been to 4 of the ports, and so were looking for new experiences, we had visited 3 already, so knew what we wanted. We had cruised last year with FO to Norway...what a difference! Good bits....the restaurant staff were the usual helpful, attentive and able ...

Smaller Cruising

Review for Pacific Princess to Europe - All

Age 50s

The ship is the smallest and oldest in the Princess fleet. After many cruises this one was somewhat disappointing. The main issue was the dining. The food and service was sub-par and not up to the standards of most other cruises we have been on. The cabin was what I expected and did have a lot of storage. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was especially challenging to use with water leaking ...

This ship leeft Dover for Norway and Iceland. We've never been to Iceland and this ship sailed around the entire island. We stopped four times, on the East Coast, on the North Coast, on the Northwest and in Reykjavik. The first three stops were very small towns, fewer than 10,000 people, with limited scenic spots and opportunities. They were interesting, but limited. Reykjavik is the capital, ...

Good itinerary but the ship was disappointing

EMARKATION;- Embarkation went very smoothly without a hint of a queue and in fact we were allowed on the ship earlier than expected. Once onboard we were permitted access to staterooms on the understanding that they may not be quite ready, though ours was. THE SHIP;- The ship is easy to navigate being a small ship and the decor is pleasant - much better than the Princess website photos ...
