Disembarked here. Again, expected more than a large shed with a few people milling about. Still, clearing customs was easy and suitcase recovery was no problem.

Busy, busy city and the Maritime Museum was closed, likely due to being run by a government agency who couldn't figure it all out. Great city to walk around and nice restaurant down on the waterfront. We could walk to terminal from hotel but took a cab. It was easier. Next time, we'll walk. Read Less

Nothing was open so we stopped in Salisbury, walked to cathedral, used restroom & walked back to bus. At Stonehenge it was busy & disorganized.

The shore excursions were extortionate When we docked at Marseille, they frightened some passengers into paying $20 for a shuttle, there was a free bus at the entrance to the port

After a long flight we were made to wait quite a while to board. A very long wait at the airport, a long bus ride, followed by another long wait in another line. Then we learn that we had to surrender our passports, which was not good. (We wanted to leave the ship completely, so maybe that's why Princess takes them away, so we're completely trapped in the prison of the sea.) To make things even worse, they made a mistake and didn't print my card and had to give me a temporary card, instructing me to go find a specific place on ship where I could get one printed. However, since I didn't have my card, I was grilled by every single person in every single area as I boarded. This wasn't my mistake, yet I was certainly paying for it. After passing 2 or 3 people, I was not permitted to board the ship until someone went to get me a card. Read Less

Port was not ready for 4k+ passengers to be dumped 2 days earlier. NCL did not have enough buses to offer excursions for their passengers.

Most of the ports that we visited were 20-40 minutes away from the town as well as being mostly container ports which were noisy and dirty. We felt that Cunard had not given much thought to the age of the passengers who were mainly 65+ with limited mobility. Some of the ports of call used coaches that had no air con/pa system and were built for the local ‘slight’ population. Not much thought given to the trips that were offered which could be challenging for younger/able bodied people not really for those on board ship Read Less
