We cruise often, 30+ with different cruise companies. We find embarkation on PO so slow and drawn out, sitting for hours on end with a letter in your hand waiting to hear yours to be called, or turn up about 2.30pm and you don't have to ... Read more

We had cruised on Britannia around Caribbean in January, and had a wonderful time, so were a bit apprehensive of taking a short break just over to Bruges. However, it was my friend's 60th, so the 15 of us joined her. We had a great time. ... Read more
