Good in many ways but ship is old & administration very poor. Do not rely on regional coach transfers,
"Crew on board , food, drinks , entertainment & cabin were all good but whilst the ship has been refitted it is showing its age as there is constant noisy maintenance going on and cabin facilities are basic, particularly TV which had no signal a lot of the time & gave very little information.Destinations were good & trips reasonable but often rushed so not as enjoyable as they could have been...."Read More

Top value with a good itinerary

Review for Ambience to Mediterranean

The cruise had been revised to Grand Mediterranean before we booked. The Black Sea was inaccessible because of the war in Ukraine. We booked this for the itinerary and didn't know what to expect for such a reasonable price. We had a contingency plan to fly home from Rome if we really didn't like it. We were pleasantly surprised and it exceeded all expectations. There is a nice atmosphere on ...

We've always wanted to visit the Norwegian Fjords which is what we chose to experience with Ambassador. They offered everything we needed as my husband has limited mobility and we needed to be sure he would be able to get around easily. And, at a very competitive price. The itinerary was perfect. The staff were all faultless and special thanks go to our steward Jellie and waiters Win and ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I needed a cruise that that tied in with school holidays and I wanted one that lasted more than a few days so that I got a feel for the whole cruising experience. As a first time cruiser, I felt that a week would be perfect. I first came across Ambassador on a YouTube video. It focussed on cruising on the ship as a solo passenger. I liked what I saw and investigated further. As soon as I ...

An endurance test not a luxury cruise

We saw Ambassador's Grand Canada and Greenland cruise about a year ago and thought what a wonderful itinerary. So we booked it not knowing anything about this 'new' cruise line. As a way of checking the Company out we booked a week long Norway cruise in April to see if it was for us. This was it's second maiden voyage cruise. We were totally dismayed at the state of the ship. They shouldn't ...

First cruise post Covid and first with Ambassador. An absolute joy Ambassador have certainly got things right, from brilliant guest speakers to excellent food, but the highlight was the outstanding evening entertainment. Ports of call Eidfjord stunning scenery a a lovely trip to a cider brewery. Flam and a trip on the famous railway not to be missed. Bergen pretty and nice shops but strangely ...

I have recently returned from a cruise on the ship Ambience with Ambassador Cruises. It was a no fly cruise from Tilbuy to Canada, Greenland and Iceland. From the start there were problems. We had to queue at Tilbury for nearly two hours without seats or facilities to get refreshments. Once on the ship and throughout the voyage the air conditioning was faulty and so we were either freezing or ...

As we have sailed with 6 very different cruise lines, varying from the high class to the expedition type, well known family ships as well as a couple of cruise lines aimed at the over 50s and mainly adult only, I felt we were well appointed to form an opinion of the new Ambassador Cruise Line and their first ship, Ambience. We have never chosen to cruise on a ship much over 3000 passenger size as ...

A lot of the ports we couldnt get into because of the hurricanes but thats not the fault of the ship!! The cabin I had to myself was very spacious and whilst some of the passengers were complaining about the heating system mine seemed to be working alright. I thought the food on the ship was very good and always something to please-especially in the cafe upstairs. The worst thing was the ...

This review will highlight the faults and problems that we encountered and that we feel reflect badly on Ambassador and Ambience – we have given Ambassador two weeks to respond to an e-mail detailing most of these, but without a response so far. I would not recommend a cruise on Ambience. • Background Information and Booking o We are a couple in our 70s who have cruised at least once most ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We originally booked a very similar cruise on C M V that went out of business - we particularly wanted to visit Halifax and Sydney ( Nova Scotia ) due to a hurricane we did not get to either one. Embarkation was lengthy and disorganised - not the 5 minutes they claim on the internet. Our cabin was so hot on arrival we could not stay in it - 9140 - after complaining at reception - on our return ...
