First Time and Not Very Impressed

Review for Emerald Princess to Europe - British Isles & Western

We chose this ship because of the itinerary. It was our first time on a Princess Cruise. The ship interior was very nice and in great shape. The outside looked pretty bad. Lots of rust and dents. The boarding was chaotic. Very disorganized. But once onboard it was just OK. The food really needs to be improved. We ate at the two specialty dining rooms and never felt the need to go back. The ...

2 hour wait to board ship at Southampton. As soon as onboard informed our cabin had to be deep cleaned and not ready. Medallion app hopeless as was Medallion, otherwise known as my electronic tag and reduces you to a non person. 2 tenders broke down within 6 days and Princess need to be reminded these are Lifeboats as well as water taxis and as such should be cleaned regularly and certainly better ...

GOOD TO BE CRUISING AGAIN

After a gap of 2 years it was good to be back cruising on the Emerald Princess again. We did not encounter any Covid problems ourselves but believe there had been some on deck 12 that delayed our embarkation by nearly 2 hours. Having to wear a mask was a nuisance but necessary. The crew all seemed happy to be back and service was good. The inevitable cut-backs were noticeable and too numerous ...

I chose this because I cruised princess many times before but may have been my last. from the very beginning we were not told the truth about all the people quarantined with covid 19 we could not get answers to our questions. the crew seemed confused about what was happening. the lines to get tested were extremely long and the results were not made easily available the internet did not work moat ...

Never Sailing Princess Again

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

This was our first cruise ever. We planned it for over a year. Our first impression was a 5+ hour wait to emabark and have a room. Our room was not clean and ready when we arrived. It was also on the quarantine deck so we had to be rearranged. The boat looked outdated (but nothing to compare it to, until other seasoned cruisers affirmed this) The ports and excursions were horribly planned ...

Good offering from a new cruise line

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

Overall we had a wonderful trip on board Ambience visiting the Norwegian Fjords. This was only the second sailing for the ship so we were apprehensive arriving but had a lovely time. We embarked the ship very easily and our cabin was available straight away which was a lovely surprise. We travelled by train to the terminal and there was a free shuttle bus which dropped us off at the terminal ...

Norwegian Fjord beauty in the Spring was my initial choice but it was also a trial cruise for me as a single. The crew organised 3 meetings onboard for singles and this was very helpful. However as an over 50’s cruise everyone I met was very open and friendly. The crew were very friendly and efficient and this is a strength that I praise Ambassador for. There were teething problems on the ship ...

Review for Valiant Lady to Europe - British Isles & Western

I can only speak from my own experience of the ship. Your mileage may be different. On this particular sailing of Valiant Lady, only 600 passengers were on board. I sailed solo and I'm a 48 year old man. As a loyal Virgin Atlantic customer and also regular cruiser, I decided to try Virgin Voyages on a 5 night sailing on the Valiant Lady from Amsterdam to Portsmouth. From the moment I boarded ...

Really the most beautiful voyage in the world

The relaxed, open Scandinavian atmosphere on board paired with the great service in all areas but above with the grandiose landscape that constantly passing you by made the trip an expierience. The expeditionteam around Heinz with his assitants Eva und Hegge always prepaired us excellently for the next day with their presentations. They brought us closer to Norway in a good mood. Every ...

Originally, I chose a different cruise, it was 11 nights on the Vision OTS from USA to South America, but my wife had got ill after the last cruise in October 2021 and was advised not to fly long-haul, so I swapped it for this one. So, we travelled down by train from Nottingham to London and then tubed it into Heathrow T5 where I had arrange for a Antigen test for us both before getting on our ...
