Cruising is not for us

Captain didn't expect cold weather in the Arctic

Went to see the Northern Lights which were fantastic. The ship was good but not suitable for a trip to the Arctic in Winter. There was a computer failure at check in and it took three hours for the luggage to ...

Worst cruise ever!

We wanted to spend some time with my brother & sister-in-law, they live near Bournemouth, we live in Canada so we thought a short cruise out of Southampton would be perfect. This ship is 19 years old and frankly ...

First Time Cruisers - Norway

A lovely cruise, the ship is tired and a little old, but we liked it, not too big that you get lost and not too small to feel crowded. We were lucky with weather, the sunniest in 15 years we were told. We loved the ...
