Booked this cruise over a year ago to go in search of the northern lights. Relocation cruise prior to ours was cancelled due to an outbreak of gastrointestinal cases. This meant some hygiene restrictions were still in place for first few days. This did lead to some inconvenience and slow service. Some toilets were closed. After three days the restrictions were lifted and everything got back to ...

We chose this cruise because it departed from Newcastle upon Tyne, which is only 12 miles from home. Much better than hanging around airports, as so many people also commented .Embarkation was orderly and efficient. Luggage taken care of early on and delivered to door of cabin. For all we have been on a number of cruises before we were impressed with both the size of the cabin(suite) and its ...

Not keen on cruises due to being prone to sea sickness but Ambassador's Land of Fire and Ice looked too good to miss so we booked and included car parking at the port. From arrival in the port through to the express disembarkation at the end of the holiday we received great service from all the staff and were very happy with the arrangements for excursions, port to town transfers, time in port and ...

Chose this cruise as a replacement for a covid cancellation, the duration and departure port were right for us but we had visited the destinations before. Newcastle is easy to get to with plenty of secure parking near the terminal. Check in was quick and efficient. A friendly welcome. Our porthole cabin on deck two was a good size and very comfortable, better than some of the so called ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

As first time cruisers we wanted a relatively short cruise to try it out and equally we wanted a 'ship' not a floating tower block and as such to be able to go where larger vessels could not, nor swamp destinations with thousands of passengers. One benefit of this was that leaving and returning to the ship when visiting ports was a nice simple affair. Similarly joining the ship in Newcastle was ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

We have recently come back from a 5 day cruise travelling to and around the Norwegian Fjords with stops at Bergen and Flåm. It surpassed our expectations in every way! It was our first time on a cruise. The reason we chose it is because we both love an all inclusive holiday but get bored in one location. 5 days was a good amount of time to see if it was something we would want to do again and ...

Wanted the opportunity to visit Iceland and the Faroe Islands, to learn about the geology, history and way of life of the people who live there. Enjoyed the dramatic scenery. Also liked being able go sightseeing in the places visited and to try some locally brewed beers. In particular liked having overnight stops in Reykjavik and Akureyri. Well organised with friendly staff. Comfortable cabin ...
