We have recently returned from a cruise aboard the Marco Polo and wish to convey our thanks and appreciation for the service we received all through the holiday.

The cabins were first class, the food was excellent , the staff were all very helpful (all nationalities) and a big advantage for us was that we only had a 15 min car ride to the terminal.

I am sure in the future we will be tempted to sail with you again and we are passing our comments to all friends we meet.

Just returned from your cruise from Hull to Norway on the Marco Polo and we would like to say how much we enjoyed the cruise. As this was our first cruise we weren't sure of any procedures but the embarkation procedure was easy then shown to our cabin by a crew member. The staff on the ship were all friendly and helpful. The meals were excellent either in the Waldorf Restaurant or Marco's Restaurant. After our evening meal we went to the show in the Marc Polo Lounge and found the entertainment was really good.

During the days at sea, time was taken up by going to the lectures by John Hussy or watching the films shown in the Marco Polo Lounge.

We enjoyed it so much that we have just booked for next year for the Baltic Cities and St Petersburg on the Marco Polo departing from Hull.

We have just returned from a British Isles Cruise on Columbus and wanted to say how much we enjoyed our trip. Embarkation was a little chaotic at first (we were some of the first people on) but once the lanes had been put in place it went smoothly as did disembarkation. Our balcony cabin was clean and spacious and our steward could not have done more for us, he was efficient and friendly. The food in the Waterfront restaurant was very enjoyable with a good choice. The entertainment was good to start with but by the end of the cruise the shows were spectacular particularly the 'Round the World' evening. It was nice to see that the crew and other members of staff not normally acknowledged were given special thanks in a parade and cabaret in the Atrium, it was an evening enjoyed by everyone. We had such a good time we have booked to go to the Baltics next year.

We have recently returned from a wonderful cruise on the Columbus to Norway. There was so much that was great about the cruise. The ship was smaller than our only other cruise and nicer for it. Food was great, entertainment was very enjoyable and your staff are very friendly.

We have just arrived from the maiden voyage on the Columbus to Amsterdam and Antwerp. This was our first cruise and it lived up to more than our expectations. We had a fabulous time and enjoyed every minute of the cruise. The food was beautiful and plentiful. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the service was excellent. Thank you for a most fabulous holiday. I believe the Columbus will go from strength to strength.

Firstly, thank you for sorting out my parking information at Bristol for the above cruise. Secondly, we had a most enjoyable time, everything was splendid: the crew, the programme, the food! Thirdly, we really appreciated the informal Christian gathering you organised for us on the mornings when were at sea. Thank you.

We have just returned from a wonderful cruise around Britain & Amsterdam on the Astoria. We feel compelled to write and thank you for a wonderful 10 day cruise. We cannot thank the crew enough for their kindness and attention to all our needs, the food was wonderful and the waiters’ service and the cabin crew were first class. We also commend the captain for his decision to reverse course to ensure we missed the bad weather.

I would just like to say how much my wife and I really enjoyed our recent voyage to the Azores on Marco Polo. The food was excellent, in fact it was by far the best that we have ever had on many voyages in the past twenty years. The Executive Chef and all his staff, together with our two waiters did exceptionally well. I would also like to commend the superb service that we received from our cheerful and friendly cabin steward, our room was kept immaculately clean throughout the voyage. The entertainment in the show lounge was on the whole good, Dana was exceptional and really showed how to engage an audience. Also the port of Bristol was very efficient and well organised.

What a great disembarkation we had following our wonderful cruise in March to the spring gardens and River Seine experience. The disembarkation was fast, smooth and the fact we were able to park in the terminal itself was fantastic. So our thanks to everyone for the cruise and for the disembarkation on the 1st April.

This was our third time on Astoria, we love her very much and she feels like our own home from home. As always all the staff were so helpful and happy to help, which makes such a lovely atmosphere. I cannot praise the Maitre'd and our waiter on table 52 in the Olissipo Restaurant highly enough for looking after me so well with all my food allergies, the food was excellent. I tried to thank the Maitre'd on our final morning but was unable to find him, it was a busy morning. Also the same praise goes to the ships Doctor and Nurse who were excellent when my husband became ill just after embarking.
