Iona good and bad

Review for Iona to Europe - Western Mediterranean

Booked this one as wanted to see what Iona was like and to get away on a cruise again. Boarding and testing was mostly good and fast and we kept on moving but we did keep getting asked the same questions about 4 times by different people and the lady checking us in was dreadful - I couldn’t hear anything she said , she made no effort to be clearer for us and seemed as if she didn’t want to be ...

Disabled awareness lacking

Unfortunately the cruise was not as good as we’d hoped and we were disappointed at how our disabled child was largely ignored. Our son is 11 and has cerebral palsy and is a full wheelchair user and cannot speak or eat but can understand. During the cruise only 4 members of staff spoke to either him or to us about him. In the main dining room our servers only asked for our names not our sons. ...

We have done several Celebrity cruises and had two booked this summer. We cancelled the first in July (still waiting for our cruise credit) and took the sailing on the 14th 8nts booking an Aqua Class stateroom. I don’t want to ramble too much so here are my likes and dislikes. Blu Dining was fantastic, every meal top notch although the menus were dated 2018 so a refresh is needed. Staff were ...

I booked this cruise as a safe option after having a couple of holidays cancelled. After the worry of getting the PCR results getting on the ship was very easy though I would advise taking hard copy of all your documents and don't depend on the apps etc for you vaccination and PCR results. The ship is okay, though I generally dislike the layout of Celeb ships. Next bit of advice is if you are ...

Perfect British Isles cruise

Booked a standard double balcony - room was fine. Only slight grumble would be the lack of UK plugs, easily overcome with the loan of an adapter from Guest Relations. It's a slightly older ship so don't expect USB chargers. Embarkation was easy as were the tests. Don't forget to bring QR codes if your child had a PCR test preboarding but is not double jabbed. Easy to park right by the ...

This was our second cruise with Fred Olsen and the more we see of the FO fleet the more we love them. Fred Olsen's innovative choice of ports is a great attraction to us. After completing thirty cruises with other cruise lines mostly Celebrity we were looking for new stimulating destinations and FO has come up with some fascinating packages. The highlight of the trip was the two day visit to ...

We decided on Cunard as P&O have gone so far downhill,it’s not an option anymore. We are lucky enough to have suites when we cruise and boy do Cunard treat you well. The cabin at the back of the ship was clean and spacious. We dined in the queens grill,where you have your own table and nobody else ever sits there,it’s yours for the duration.The waiter we had was second to none and the ...

Chose cruise on recommendation. Brittania Outside with Balcony on Deck 4. Cabin nice but not exceptional, shower particularly small. Steward did a good job. Corridors on several of the lower decks were at times smelly and were well in need of re-decoration. Main public areas were much better but our biggest criticism was more related to other guests. Commodore Bar at times almost empty and half ...

Mixed Feelings!

Review for MSC Grandiosa to Mediterranean

First time cruising with MSC and we were left with mixed feelings. The ship could not really be faulted, being the first voyage from Southampton to Barcelona the ship and everything on board was brand new! Our cabin was well appointed and modern with many USB ports and universal power outlets, which you would expect from a new ship. We found the entertainment to be interesting, some nights the ...
