1st cruise after 600+ days of pause - excellent!

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We saw this 3 night cruise advertised at a very good price as it was the first cruise the ship was to make after 600+ days of ‘pause’. We realised that there could be problems but in fact they were very few. We booked cabin 10054. This was a Princess Grill grade cabin. We had previously crossed the Atlantic twice in a PG cabin - although it was 10 years ago. We were asked to check in at ...

We chose this ship because we have a world cruise booked on her in January 2020 (she was the only P&O ship available for a world cruise). We wanted to test the water so to speak by booking this 3 day mini cruise where we had the same cabin we have booked on the world cruise. We were very pleasantly surprised, Arcadia is a lovely ship, smaller in size than we are accustomed to but we actually ...

We headed to Southampton on a bright autumn afternoon - looking forward to our 16th cruise on our largest ship to date. We entered the port of Southampton via dock gate 8 - dock gate 8 is near the holiday inn - it can be tricky to find as the sgins are not clear. AB Parking were on duty at the city cruise terminal - as it was a short cruise it was self parking - we got a great space close to ...

I wanted to go to Paris from Le. Harve. Also wanted to go to Amsterdam . Paris tour was wonderful. Our driver took us to all the main sites then we had free time in Paris. The weather was glorious for October, best tour ever. Amsterdam also good. Azura is a lovely ship. I love the cinema open air and the lovely blankets you can wrap in. Loved the feel of the ship and going again at ...

we chose this short cruise for the entertainment it being a 60s cruise which was excellent. afraid it stops there, the food in the buffet was very good but the seating arrangement was not good to say the least the tables were much too close together it resembled a school canteen. the evening food was over cooked and quite boring,we requested a table for 6 or 8 and got a table for 2 squashed ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our first ever cruise. We chose the 4 nights trip from Southampton to Zeebrugge and then the trip to St Peter Port (Guernsey) returning to Southampton. We upgraded to deck 11 and had a lovely balcony in a luxurious state room. Our room number was 11074 and we were travelling with family who had rooms 11070 & 11064. We found the service and the facilities perfect. The crew were exceptional ...

A Lovely Cruise Aboard a Wonderful Ship

Review for Britannia to France

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We had a week aboard the Britannia along with my elderly parents who had never cruised before. We had been a little concerned having read previous reviews, but went with an open mind. The ship itself is spacious, spotlessly clean and very well laid out. We were all able to find our way around it quickly. The concerns around the lack of stairs mid-ship were well founded, but I would say that ...

Awful Experience

Review for Britannia to France

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We have just returned from a 2 night "Taster" cruise that was originally booked for Bruges, however due to the recent attacks, the destination changed to Le-Harve. This was OK with us as it was more about what holiday life on a ship would be like as this was our first cruise experience before we think about booking a longer 2 or 3 week holiday. On the back of this experience, I would not ...

This cruise was planned for Brugges/Belgium. It was changed at the last minute, but I won't comment on that because the change was understandable and couldn't really be helped. This was our 6th cruise (and the first one on Britannia), I had high hopes for Britannia, but unfortunately it was a bit average The good points were the bathrooms were great (other than the lack of handwash or soap ...
