65 London (Greenwich, Tower Bridge, Tilbury) Cruise Reviews

We found boarding at Tilbury extremely easy, and so fast! From exiting our taxi, it was pretty much down to how fast we could walk - very welcoming staff in all areas

Embarkation was super efficient - if you're in Tilbury for the day, you'll need quite a bit of time to get into London - there's very little to do in the immediate area.

Port of Tilbury is very basic, but it does the job. When we arrived there was a delay as there had been an outbreak of Norovirus and the ship had to be fumigated. Not sure if it worked as my wife and I both were ill for the last 3 days of the cruise. The illness lasted over 2 weeks. Read Less

Car parking is now much easier than it was before - once you've dropped your car and luggage off, the port building is in walking distance, or there's a courtesy bus.

Greenwich is so close to London, the MBNA Thames River Bus is at the port, easy to go to central city for a few bucks with great scenery.

Very interesting. Crowded - a tourist mecca, but our guide did well to move us along.

Was sold as an 8.5 hr. Excursion. Only 7 hours. Tour guide walked very, very fast through congested streets and lost many of the participants

Excellent guide and bus driver. Typical rainy London Spring weather. Well worth the trip to London and the Tower.

What a terrible joke. Most cruise companies try and make sure passengers can get to the nearest town easily. Either with a pre arranged shuttle or something. But not the Pearl. Also no British Pounds on ship do we only had Euro’s and American. It was a 2 1/2 -3 mile walk to the closest ATM. Even though customer service told people there was one in the terminal they lied. No cabs around. Port security for town said that some cabs took Euro but charged more and no credit cards taken. So with my 80 year old mother we could walk or go no where. We turned around and went on board. It rained buckets that day. If we had tried to walk we would have been caught in major rainstorm in industrial area trying to find and ATM So we lost London too. We had lost Dublin due to not being allowed to get off ship earlier then tender time of 1:50pm. Basically, Norweigian could care less if you get to go into port on your own. They do all to force you to buy excursions or be stranded. Horrible and unsafe! Read Less

Having been to London on another visit to the UK, I decided to explore nearby Gravesend, just across the river from where we were docked, and accessible via a water shuttle for a nominal fee. Highlights of the visit included antique shopping, seeing the Pocahontas Statue, having authentic fish and chips at one establishment, followed by classic afternoon tea at another. Read Less

We went to London three days prior to the embarkation date as we were apprehensive about flying out of Boston in the winter. It was a lovely, relaxing stay at The Kensington Hotel, where staff pleasantly looked after our every need. Having visited all the 'must-sees' previously, we were content to wander the neighborhoods on our own and thoroughly enjoyed a Twilight SOHO Tour by Eating Europe London -- highly recommended!

We sailed up the Thames to the Tower Bridge in London, arriving around 9PM. As the bridge was lifted so the ship could sail under it to the dock, they began playing Rule Brittania by a philharmonic orchestra over the speakers. The shore was lined with people watching and listening to this glorious music and cheering. It was an experience I''ll never forget. The staff and crew were as excited as everyone else, pictures and videos galore, hugging and tears. Thank you Silver Seas! Read Less
