Ambience, Northern Europe


This was our third cruise on Ambience, so it is safe to say that we like the ship and the on-board experience. We had chosen an inside cabin, not just for economy, but because I need complete darkness to be able to sleep and it suited that need. The ship is rather elderly, like most of the passengers, but has been well renovated so that the public rooms are very inviting.
The food in both the restaurant and the buffet is good. The waiters in the Buckingham restaurant are excellent - friendly and efficient. The shows from the on-board troop are first class - some of the best I have seen at sea, but the guest entertainers were a little past their sell by dates.
Congratulation to the cruise director, George, for all his work making sure everything went as planned. He was a real live-wire. Unfortunately, I am on tablets that don't allow me to drink alcohol, but there was so much jollity on board, I didn't miss it- well, not to much.
There is a disco on the highest deck which was used mainly for sequence dancing during the day, but came alive later a night for disco and there did turn out to be a number of younger passengers on board to join in this.
The ports of call and the weather were very good, but it was a bit too windy for much sunbathing.
All-in-all a very good cruise

The ship really needed one or two more weeks preparation to get it ready to take paying passengers. Some areas had not been completed and were not available. There were technical problems, such as plu...
