Review for Emerald Princess to Europe - British Isles & Western

I want to thank Princess Cruises for removing any desire I might have to go on future cruises after my experience on Emerald Princess. I was shocked at how bad the overall service was compared to the other dozen cruises we have been on. One example of poor service was the dining and beverage service. My wife and I ordered the Soda Package and to get a soda while you dined you had to tell a ...

Good return to cruising but chaotic at times

DH and I tried this cruise as we wanted to see if we still loved cruising after 2+ years without, due to the dreaded Covid. We also wanted to visit Amsterdam and as this was the only stop on the trip it seemed a good idea to kill two birds with one stone. I booked through a local TA who as exemplary in their help when communication with P and O was necessary. We paid a very good price for 4 ...

We have sailed on ventura numerous times but have noticed a big drop in standards the lack of choice in the food both in the main and buffet areas. The food that was on offer was of a good standard portion sizes seem to be getting smaller. Also the ship is looking very tired tatty in places. The main problem with this cruise was the change of port from Amsterdam to Cherbourg and le havre which ...

Being laid up during covid hasn't done this ship any favours. Generous rust and flaking paint on the balcony, with unvarnished hand rail. Internally OK, if a bit dated, and due for dry Dock soon for renovation. Comfortable cabin, with the newer Comfortable mattresses and pillows. Food in MDRs generally good, and pre booking with the medallion app meant no waiting in line. Entertainment ...

We booked NCL cruise air program, our flight to London was cancelled, no help from any NCL personnel, we managed to get on another flight with the help of the American Airline personnel. We contacted the emergency contact number and informed them that we were flighting out on a different airline, we had a transfer to the hotel and our time of arrival in London. When we got to London, our luggage ...

Very Poor Excursions

We have been on NCL many times and this is the first since pandemic. We expected more. First the food and entertainment was great. The balcony room one needs a ladder to get into the shower. it comes with a tub. The room has not been remodeled since inception. It is old and not modern. The excursions were a disaster. The staff for excursions were limited with workers. looks like put together ...

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary to the British Isles. My husband really wanted to do this cruise, but it was cancelled twice since 2020 due to Covid and then he ultimately lost his battle with colon cancer 4 months ago. My daughter and I booked this cruise to honor his wishes. We booked air thru their promotion and arrived a day early at Heathrow. Flight was on Delta and was ...

This was our first Cunard Cruise, we had high hopes: ship looks stylish, cabin comfortable, embarkation smooth. Drinks are seriously overpriced and service charges do not reflect the level of service delivered. on arrival we had wine but only one glass, no teaspoons for coffee and not enough milk. Food options are very limited compared to P&O and food is rather bland, unimaginative and ...

We picked this cruise because of the itinerary. The ship is old but very beautiful, food was excellent and the service was wonderful. Every crew member did everything possible to make sure our experience was top rated. The ports of call were mostly interesting, especially Bordeaux, Bilbao (the Rioja region) Porto and Lisbon. We prefer the Azamara small ship experience due to the personal ...

Lots of British stops we haven't been to so picked this cruise. Medallion App doesn't work every time so easiest thing to ring Princess before you sail to set up you info, and once aboard, if you order more than one drink at a time , even if you have the drinks package, you get billed for the drinks- have to go to reception to remove payment. Embarkation a doddle - 10 min from arriving at ...
