Review for MSC Virtuosa to Baltic Sea

I have to say what great value this cruise was 4 nights for under £400 including drinks and tips with no single supplement. There were under 900 passengers on a ship that holds over 6000 so plenty of space. I arrived at the port about 10.40 and check in was a doddle i was on board before 11.30 The food in the restaurant was really good i eat there every time apart for one time in the ...

So our cruise was the third short cruise which constitutes the maiden voyage of the Virtuosa. Embarkation was smooth, we waited about 20mins for the result of our covid test but then it was straight on board. The ship is stunning - brand new, very sparkly, from the crystal steps to the mirrored lifts via the glass wine cellar, all was shiny and beautiful. The staff were all friendly and ...

Just so you know, we are not travel agents or "in the biz" as such. We are reasonably experienced cruisers (this was our 70th) with no axe to grind. We have been on most, but not all operators, yet !! On a less than sunny May Thursday, my wife and i left home for a 4 day staycation on MSC VIRTUOSA. Once our car was parked we went to the port to board the ship. The port was quiet, but with ...

I chose this cruise as my first solo cruise although I have cruised with P&O many times before. I was particularly looking forward to the chance of seeing the aurora borealis as this cruise spends three days at the very northern tip of Norway so the chance of seeing the lights is quite good. We left Southampton after completing health check forms and having our temperature taken and all seemed ...

Picked this cruise as keen to see the Northern Lights. This is a 12-night cruise that spends 2 nights at the very top of Norway that offers an excellent chance to see Northern Lights. I was kind of expecting the cruise to be canceled but all seemed to be fine as we joined the ship at Southampton. We set sail and headed up through the North Sea. Sea was a bit rough but the Aurora copes well ...

Very old ship, not for young people

This ship is very old. Wouldn't be surprised if it gets decommissioned in the coming years. Does not handle the waves very well. Anything from 3 meters up and the voyage will be bumpy. It seems to attract an older traveler. Some are very old 90 plus. Alot had zimmer frames, walking sticks and there were a few in wheelchairs. The entertainment reflected this as acts were outdated and overall not ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 30s

I have decided to write this review to help first time cruisers like myself decide if cruising is for them. There were a lot of reviews, especially about Aurora that were negative and we had no idea what to expect. So from the beginning; we chose this cruise for our honeymoon for one reason only. To see the northern lights. It seemed like a great way to experience them. Booking was easy and we ...

This was our first Cruise with Fred Olsen. Most impressed. Despite being a small ship, the ship and the cruse organisation were quite superb. The staff were perhaps the friendliest we have encountered on other cruises, They were very attentive and were always ready to assist those need ing help Though the main entertainment was not as good as the bigger ships, the secondary entertainment was ...

This was our second cruise with Fred Olsen and the more we see of the FO fleet the more we love them. Fred Olsen's innovative choice of ports is a great attraction to us. After completing thirty cruises with other cruise lines mostly Celebrity we were looking for new stimulating destinations and FO has come up with some fascinating packages. The highlight of the trip was the two day visit to ...

I haven’t cruised with P&O for over twenty years and as this cruise coincided with school holidays I thought I’d give it a try. Very disappointing. To begin with the Indian and Philippine staff are perfect and a credit both to their respective countries and to P&O. The problem on this ship is the U.K. staff. All very well being a ‘British’ ship but if you cruise with them you can expect a ...
