Review for a British Isles & Western Europe Cruise on Viking Star

Atillathetourguide
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

The itinerary was a huge draw for me. So many places I'd never been topped off by Iceland and mixed with lovely visits to old favorites. Plus it was my first Viking cruise and a friend had raved about it. My only other cruise experience had been the Caribbean with island and Mexico stops. Not really my cup of tea, large ships, lots of partying and the constant ding ding ding of the casino. ...

Venture itself is great but tendering even in regular ports is only by Zodica which can mean a lengthy wet ride to get to and from the tour buses.

Review for a British Isles & Western Europe Cruise on Seabourn Venture

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Venture is a beautiful small ship but Seabourn do need to have a rethink re what parts of a voyage in particular round the UK are "expedition" and which are not. We were cruising around Scotland where many of the places we visited and the tours on offer were the same as for the regular cruise ships. However, as all tendering was by Zodiacs (which hold 12 people) this did take longer for the ...

Lots of covid

Review for a British Isles & Western Europe Cruise on Emerald Princess

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was a British Isles cruise not Alaska and we chose it because it allowed us to attend the Edinburgh Military Tattoo while docked in Glasgow. This would have been wonderful except that I missed all of the Scotland ports due to being quarantined for Covid (my husband did get to go and he said it was great) and my husband also missed several ports due to Covid (he tested + a few days after me). ...

Wonderful family holiday

Review for a British Isles & Western Europe Cruise on Anthem of the Seas

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

I hope in this review to give an idea to families with younger children what the experience of cruising with RC is like - this was our 1st time with them. By comparison we have cruised 3 times previously with Celebrity (all fantastic), once with P and O (disappointing) and once with Princess (similar disappointment to P and O. We did a lot of research prior to the cruise and had high ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

This was a cruise without any positiv feelings for the costumers. With a cruise director Thalling who found himself to! impotant... Captain Timmers was oke. Food was very good, ship new and clean, stewards very friendly as always. This was the better part of this "nothing cruise" Bad Covid prevention, and off course a hugh Covid outbreak again, like more cruises before! No ...

1st European Cruise

Review for a British Isles & Western Europe Cruise on MSC Virtuosa

Clawman
10+ Cruises • Age 40s

Experienced cruiser (15+ with CCL, NCL, RCCL, and MSC) This was our first European Cruise Experience. We embarked on this cruise ship mid itinerary (Portugal 7/27/22 and disembarked on 8/10/22) so we were part of 2 different cruises. The beginning portion of our cruise had less passengers (~3000) than the 2nd portion (~5000 pax) so we were able to see a big difference. The Virtuosa was ...

Great all round cruise

Review for a British Isles & Western Europe Cruise on Maud

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I chose this Expedition cruise as it had a great itinerary around the remote Scottish Isles. Particularly good if travelling alone as I found crew and passengers really friendly and helpful. The expedition team were great. Customer services desk staff excellent for sorting out any queries or problems. Cabin lacked space to put your clothes as no drawers and only 1 small wardrobe. Not ...

Review for a British Isles & Western Europe Cruise on Norwegian Star

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

The cruise was awesome and one of the highlights of the day was the Captain's announcement. They were hilarious, not sure if he was trying to be, but they were. We started in South Hampton, Scotland 3 stops, Norway 2 stops and then Iceland 3 stops. Missed a port in Scotland due to high winds and not favorable tendering conditions. Weather was pretty normal for this time of year, rain and ...

Vale SilverSea: never again

Review for a British Isles & Western Europe Cruise on Silver Wind

StelladiMare
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We are 4 times cruisers with SilverSea and have cruised with other lines. After all the lockdowns and travel restrictions over the last years, we were very much looking forward to our 5th cruise on the Silver Wind. Sadly, this will be our last cruise with SilverSea. It is difficult to know where to start. If you want to read on, grab a tea or coffee before you start: - Embarkation – the process ...
