Review for Iona to Baltic Sea

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

Before boarding the Iona cruise ship, I was very excited for various reasons. The main one was that it was my first ever cruise, so I didn’t know what it entailed. I had heard lots of good things about cruising though, particularly this ship, so I already had positive expectations. Another reason was that I would be visiting Norway, a country I had always wanted to travel to and never visited ...

Crowded, noisy booze cruise

We booked this cruise over 2 years ago as a special birthday celebration and COVID delayed it. In the meantime, we did another Iona cruise in January this year and that was lovely, but there were only 2500 passengers on board. This time, fares had been heavily discounted by P&O to fill the ship and there were a significant number of younger, louder party goers aboard. There were no masks ...

We chose this cruise so that members of our family not happy about flying could visit a beautiful country, Norway. Having recently been disappointed by the MSC Bellissima - poor food, poor entertainment, massive ship - I was concerned that this similarly sized ship would also be a disappointment. Amazingly, although this 5000+ passenger ship was full, this was a great cruise. Food very good, ...

We have been on many p and o cruises on various ships and really enjoyed them This ship is not for us you have to book dining for every meal on an app you download when you get on board. Even have to book entertainment in some cases but these were repeated a lot . Rooms only done once a day Think very short of staff or that’s how it seemed. This was supposed to be a Norwegian fiord’s cruise ...

An Impressive Ship, Lots to Do, But Dining Was Not Relaxing!

This was our second Norwegian cruise with P&O, the first being on Britannia in 2018, and our third cruise overall. Our adult son accompanied us this time, and we chose a spacious interior cabin with a sofa-bed, mid-forward on Deck 4, which I'll describe in more detail later, but suffice to say we were very happy with it. Iona is an impressive ship, with lots to see and do; it's still got that ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

This was my first cruise ever and it was meant to be mine and my husbands honeymoon but we honestly was so disappointed. First of all we had to pay for private covid test before hand for a cerifly covid certificate which I understood but they only gave us like 2 week notice but we got them anyway. When we arrived in Southampton I was excited and astonished by how big the ship was but that ...

Bitter Disappointment

A very fair review based on our actual experiences. Biggest gripe. We chose this cruise to see the Fjords within Norway. The port of Olden was skipped completely due to 50mph winds. So although the cruise was advertised as “Norwegian Fjords” – we didn’t even get to see any with the skipping of the Olden port. The ship also did not cruise through Innvikfjorden NOR Nordfjord therefore we saw no ...
