Post Covid cruise for us but ….

Review for Sky Princess to Mediterranean

We had spent Xmas 2021 and New Year isolating after both having Covid so were looking forward to an Easter holiday to make up for our cancelled Christmas. We were fully vaccinated, had certificates of recovery and negative test results so posed very little risk of contracting and spreading Covid at the time of the cruise. Mask wearing was “recommended” but not compulsory so we decided to ...

This is the first negative review I have ever written. The cruise experience was ruined before it had even started. I booked direct via the Princess website had received a booking confirmation, and then received no further communication from them whatsoever, no documentation, nothing. Tried to ring them a week before the cruise, no response despite spending about an hour waiting on the phone over ...

We booked this Cruise on the 25 January 2022 as a special birthday celebration which included visiting Sicily and Sardinia the highlights for us. We paid the total, but confirmation of my Travel Insurance was not included until we heard from the Insurance Department. We did receive a call from Saga and gave the requested information. We were told we would be contacted from another colleague. ...

Thoroughly Underwhelmed. Should We All Be Cruising?

Our first cruise with Princess, and probably our last as they gave no reason why we should travel with them again. We had a number of issues that I will go into briefly later, but one of my biggest qualms affected our whole trip from the outset. The mask wearing. What is the point of travelling and losing freedoms if you have all been double jabbed and tested before embarkation? To come ...

Iona good and bad

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. ...

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 ...

Round the UK Staycation, not the Med

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 ...

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 ...

Overated Overpriced

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 ...
