My wife and I are fond of smaller ships but we chose Iona because its itinerary was perfect for us - ports we had not visited before and others, like Barcelona and Lisbon, we were happy to revisit. Iona is an impressive ship and it passed its first tests with flying colours, a force nine gale in the Channel and a choppy Bay of Biscay. It is a very stable ship and even more so as we were located ...

We chose this cruise as we are Elite members and it fitted with my time off. Everything pre cruise was fine until 14 days before hand our room became magically unavailable! 2 days later we were allocated another room a deck higher which was ok. Lots of sketchy e mails sent by Celebrity regarding ports of calls and changing itinerys and health regulations which was confusing and actually not ...

Why did we go? To cruise again & for some sunshine. Paperwork dealt with, excellent coach service to port with Evesway, embarkation smooth. Delighted with space in our Accessible Concierge cabin, no. 1028. As expected a bit bumpy thru Bay of Biscay. There had been changes to whether we might/not explore Canaries on our own by bubble prevailed. Those who hadn’t booked cruise excursions ...

We chose this cruise from Southampton as we didn’t yet feel safe taking a fly-cruise. The check in process was very efficient (mostly done on-line). Despite our reservations, the Covid-19 protocols on board were very well thought out and as unobtrusive as they could be. Cleanliness was given top priority. All the staff wore face masks at all times and politely requested guests to do the same in ...

I am reading in astonishment some of the recent reviews regarding the way Celebrity has dealt with the current crisis and the complaints and remarks made by some people. I was beyond excited to be ‘back aboard’ and especially my favourite Silhouette Was I disappointed that we weren’t going to Portugal? Yes Was it going to stop me going and have a good time? No Was the paperwork a ...

Fab Cruise on Sky Princess

Our first cruise post COVID restrictions and got a great deal round UK and across to France. Plus good deal on drinks/wifi/gratuities package - £30/day/person (note - limit 15 drinks per day). The big complaint was that Princess changed itinerary 4 times, removing Guernsey, Cork and finally adding France to make it first "international cruise" with including passengers from USA and Canada. The big ...

As our trip to Florida got cancelled again and I didn't want to fly due to all the tests and paperwork involved we did this 7 night uk trip. My son and I had a great time from bumper car driving to iflying. Great modern ship (have done other Royal Caribbean ships but smaller ones). No sea sickness even though I'm generally a bad traveller and it was a bit rocky at times so I put that down to ...

Delightful cruise and great to go ashore independently

We chose this cruise primarily because of the free car parking and onboard spend offer, plus having the opportunity to go ashore independently in Portland, Belfast and Liverpool. The service onboard in the restaurants and bars was excellent, with a very friendly and welcoming crew. We had a lovely room stewardess who took great care of us. It is a beautiful ship and with only 1250 guests ...

First 'post-covid' International cruise: from Southampton to Spain & Canaries (no Portugal) and lessons learnt.

There should never have been the amount of stress pre cruise that we (English) and especially the Americans were put through. The lack of communication from Celebrity was a common theme. We all jumped through hoops to get on this cruise. Pre- embarkation we had to arrange for PCR tests within 3 days of leaving. The choice was use Eurofins, recommended and linked to Celebrity who then forward ...

Picked this cruise as it was from Southampton so no flying. Great thing about this ship is the crew,all helpful and happy, great stateroom on deck 10,food very good in the MDR, not the usual choices in the buffet,which was disappointing ( perhaps because there were only approx 1300 guests onboard ), precautions taken re covid were very good ,but there was four cases, three of these were taken ...
