Disappointing and expensive when on board

We chose a short 5 night cruise out of SOU to give our friends a taste of cruise life - he has mobility issues and has not travelled for some time - we thought a cruise would be ideal. The whole embarkation process ...

Good way to relax (unless you love a moan)

I'm on the same "eventful" cruise Mr. Unknown had been (previous review). Key points to address: 1. Nearly no cruise ship has a helicopter pad - airlifting is standard procedure, as is evacuating rooms / ...

BOOK YOUR OWN TOURS AND AVOID WINE PACKAGES

Embarkation the quickest ever after a smooth coach journey down from Woolley Edge in Yorkshire. Great to have luggage dealt with efficiently - you do not have any contact with it from handing it over to coach ...

Great way to cross the Atlantic

We took a repositioning transatlantic cruise from Ft. Lauderdale to Southampton on Celebrity’s Silhouette, then took Cunard’s QM II back to the States. Taking longer trips is one of the perks of being retired! ...
