Large Cruise Ship Lacking

Review for Iona to Europe - All

Well after three years we finally cruised on Iona, two cancelled in 2020. Arriving at the port was normal for us and the Covid testing straight forward. Quite a wait when checking in to finally board the ship, but acceptable. State room was in our opinion poorly planned and not upto the normal standard expected on P&O, Princess etc. Our worst nightmare despite the Social Distancing signs ...

Needs more entertainment?

Inside cabin, small, awkward to move around, poor storage! Good size bathroom. Bathroom light does not turn fully off??? None of the “swimming pools” large enough to swim in! Boring daytime entertainment padded out with beauty and body seminars. No entertainment as such in the atrium other than a single pianist every night, good pianist but poor repertoire. Only three Headliners shows ...

My wife and I are fond of smaller ships but we chose Iona because its itinerary was perfect for us - ports we had not visited before and others, like Barcelona and Lisbon, we were happy to revisit. Iona is an impressive ship and it passed its first tests with flying colours, a force nine gale in the Channel and a choppy Bay of Biscay. It is a very stable ship and even more so as we were located ...

Cruise chosen for timing and for overnight in Barcelona. We were able to visit our daughter there without any time restrictions on the first day. Boarding process a little stressful given we had no guarantee of our holiday until covid results proved negative. However, we were able to get to Southampton on Saturday lunchtime, having driven to Solihull from Scotland on the Friday and stayed ...

Practically perfect from an accessible point of view

We have previously cruised with a number of companies and feel that for us Iona is the most accessible ship we have sailed on and also the most well laid out. My husband is a full time wheelchair user. A lot of previously encountered problems have been dealt with, before struggling to enter accessible toilets, now wave your hand in front of the sensor and the door will open then close and lock ...

Poor at best

Review for Britannia to Caribbean - All

Booked this cruise after sailing on a staycation cruise, it felt good to be back cruising. We booked a superior deluxe balcony cabin for the extra space as we were a party of three adults. Embarkation was reasonably smooth but once in the terminal some of the staff were less than helpful. We boarded the ship went to our muster point as instructed and then went to the shambolic Horizon ...

We had never done transatlantic, wanted to do the Caribbean and thought a ship using sterling would be easier. Travelling with a friend, 1 late 60s, 1 early 70s. We had only done Australia and the Pacific Islands before. We booked just before covid started, but we had booked for this date. We booked a suite to treat ourselves, butler and all. He is wonderful by the way. Dining - Horizon is ...

Having cruised before with P&O on Azura we were looked forward to this cruise as we had been told that Britannia is a better ship how wrong they were, staff on Azura went the extra mile to make everything special, Britannia cruise was like being on a floating hotel. nothing was special. Approx 6 weeks before P&O reduced the price of cruise which attracted unsavoury guests mainly in the smoking ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

The cruise was very late setting off from Southampton. After passengers had been on the ship for more than 3 hours, all those who travelled by coach from Liverpool were ordered to go to a location immediately. It was later rumoured that a passenger on that coach had tested positive for Covid and the Liverpool passengers were ordered to collect their belongings and disembark. This was after they ...

First of all let me give a little background on us. We are recently retired and over the last 25 years we have been on about 20 cruises but only been on P&O only once before. We have mainly travelled on Celebrity and Royal Caribbean and never have had cause to complain about anything. Obviously after being on lockdown we decided to go on the Iona and thought what could be wrong with it, after all ...
