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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Enjoyable fortnight with much improved dining experience

Our 2018 Cunard cruise was a short, 3 day trip trying out the Britannia Club restaurant on Queen Victoria, so our last experience of the Britannia restaurant was in 2017 on Queen Mary 2. Having found that experience pretty disappointing (see my review on here), I was hopeful that the improvements suggested by our Club dining last year might have also worked their way into the main restaurant. I am ...

As a retired London travel agent I researched this cruise ship and knew the food would be very good. We booked 6.30 pm in Main Dining Room. Only went for first night as awful. Requested table for two for 50th anniversary. Put on table for six but with just four people on it. The noise from our floor and the one immediately above which was a sort of mezzanine floor was appalling. The ...

4 stars again for the cruise. Staff give excellent service and for us the S class is about the right size. We have not rated fitness or excursions as we do not use them. Our cruises are all about enjoying the ship and meeting people. Check in is excellent. We park on the dockside and typically take around 25 minutes from the car to being on the ship with a welcome drink. Azores was ...

From start to finish the process of booking our cruise was great. This was our first cruise and so I didnt know what to expect. Prior to the crusie date my husband booked a VIP package online which included internet, Priority Embarkation and disembarkation (cases off first) inside tours, wine and food pairing, laundry amongst other things. Unfotunately this package (Just under $500) didnt ...
