Review for Iona to Europe - British Isles & Western

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

In need of a break at short notice repeating an itinerary that we have travelled before. First time on Iona and unfortunately the last. Embarkation was good. Booked on a balcony guarantee basis and were given deck 8 promenade the downside being it has a permanent flow of walkers/joggers and some very nosey people who jump up to look into your cabin. Also a greater problem is the deck is full of ...

After a horrendous pre cruise experience due to their inept flight department we were pleasantly surprised with our cruise. The flight department arranged our post cruise extension as pre cruise in error. When they were advised of their mistake they went back and verified the phone conversation and then wanted to offer onboard credit rather than fix the the problem which they did 30 days later ...

Choosing Ventura for half term week was a gamble, she was full yet I was on board witjthere was still room to move, the terrace pool never overcrowded. The staff are what make Ventura so good. She is ageing gracefully has many loyal returning guests, I enjoyed my week immensely yet P& O have made a lot of cutbacks. Breakfast not as bountiful in the buffet but better in the ...

First of all the staff were really great and the ship was always maintained in an immaculate condition. However, overall on this cruise what was supposed to be a cruise of a lifetime did not met our expectations in any way shape or form. The air conditioning in our room worked intermittently and this was reported to the guest services several times. It kept us awake most evenings in very ...

A ship that has poor entertainment, misleading shore excursions information and is tired and dated.

We chose this cruise for the ports which were advertised to be in Belgium, France, Spain and Portugal. Portugal was removed from the itinerary before we sailed with no reason as to why. Le harve was also removed due to strike action at the port and whilst this is not the fault of NCL we did not get our port fees returned. Then the port for Bordeaux was cut short as there was no crane at the ...

Had great cruise in 2018 with Norwegian on the epic. Was hoping for same on the Star. The Star is smaller and was very clean. Cabin staff were excellent. Staff constantly yelling greetings at you everywhere you go. Had to ask a few to stop yelling at me. It’s sad because in their attempt to make you feel Welcome it becomes annoying and we just started to ignore them as the trip ...

Bug in Bed, 3 Itinerary Changes No Service Recovery

We were very disappointed with our cruise with the Norweigan Star. It was a 10 day crusie. We found a bed bug on our bed the second night. The staff claimed it is not a bed bug. The only person that apologized to us was Kristine the room attendant. Everyone else dismissed the issue and acted like nothing happened. We had to push them to wash our clothes for us free (after asking 4 times). Also ...

Beautiful ship, and friendly service with a lot of rough edges

My father-in-law decided to take the entire family on a cruise. This consisted of him and his wife, my brother-in-law, his wife, and their baby (who was about 1.5 years old), and my husband and myself. We opted for a cruise from Lisbon to Barcelona. Although I've only been on a couple of cruises prior, both my husband and his father have been on considerable more. This was, however, the first ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We had always thought about going on a cruise but had been put off by the price and also by some of the issues that I think put others off - hidden charges such as tips, excursions and the like, the perceived "stuffiness" of the clientele and possible seasickness. When we had our son however and were looking for a holiday to enjoy after the COVID-19 lockdowns, we decided to book this cruise rather ...

Exceptional Excursions

This trip was postponed from over a year ago due to Covid. The excursions we were able to choose from were exceptional. We are history buffs, so being able to walk the beach of Normandy and Stone Henge was quite memorable. We were also able to explore Puerto by Segway. That was a new experience. We went into many ports that were small, so the towns were not over crowded with the exception of ...
