We booked the 4 day cruise through Princes Cruises to Belfast. The Princess Cruise staff were excellent but felt that they had made a BIG MISTAKE to involve Imagine Cruising. They seemed to think they owned the cruise and getting tickets for the concerts was extremely difficult. I never want to go on a cruise where Imagine Cruising are involved..

Having done 30+ cruises and never a Princess cruise before we were looking forward to finding out what Princess cruise line had to offer. Unfortunately we were disappointed. The 80's theme shows were brilliant but these were organised by Imagine cruising. Princess didn't make much effort to provide any other entertainment, especially during the day, i.e. the line dancing and quiz both at 9 a.m. each day when most people would be at breakfast. Other activities were minimal and always at awkward times, i.e. meal times or show times. The ship itself was lovely. The crew and staff were all friendly and efficient. The cabin was large and had a comfortable king sized bed. The bathroom was a good size and had a powerful shower. Another problem on this cruise was the frustration of people trying to use the Medallion app which was useless. At busy times there weren't enough waiters and sometimes we waited more than half an hour for a drink. The All Inclusive package was also disappointing as it was limited to 15 drinks a day which included small bottles of water and speciality coffees.

We have travelled twice on this ship. Amazing customer service, Speedy boarding and covid testing. Friendly and welcoming staff who couldnt do enough for you. Made us reluctant to leave on each time.

Some called the sun seekers cruises but they were just short return to cruise cruises. We had done one with P&O and this was our second one. The boarding process took ages as there were 5 ships departing the same day !! We were booked for 1 pm boarding by it was about 3.30 when we finally boarded. All the crew and staff were wonderful and really pleased to have people on board with them. Food was fantastic and the Medallion app took some getting used to and it often charged the wrong items. Reception staff were very good at resolving the errors in charging but it happen 3 times to us and we were only on board for 3 nights. Great entertainment every night but not much to do in the day as no ports visited. We will no doubt cruise with Pricess again we have been with them a few times before but to be honest we prefer P&O although there is not much difference and they are the same company.

Where to start - Well that’s easy as Imagine cruising are a disaster full stop. Booked this cruise 1st Sept 21 as it heavily advertised that Katherine Jenkins would be 1 of the 3 star shows to see. Imagine couldn’t organise anything if they tried - had to call them 3 times due to lack of info - and what an effort that is, one time it was an hour and a half wait for someone to answer. Told there would be a formal night and there wasn’t - no info about port parking and told to call a number to organise and wrong number - then, tickets arrived the day before we left and none for KJ - told that we should have had an email asking us to list the order preference of the shows that we wanted to see, not received, no tickets left as numbers were restricted due to social distancing - remember the ship was only booked half full due to that and still we wouldn’t be able to see KJ!! - then told to talk to them on board. Luckily restrictions were lifted and we did get tickets. Told to download Medallion app - conflicting info between that and the printout regarding the health declaration before leaving home. On arrival at the port gate we were asked if we had been tested - how could we have been without the info??? - told to drive about 2 mls to another port for testing - from then on embarkation went smoothly for us, spoke to others who certainly had differing experience - 1 couple taking 2 hrs to board. As to the Regal? From the experience of 28 previous cruises and a few with Princess it’s been a disappointment - unfortunately it’s been ‘dubbed down’ and the food in the restaurant is definitely of a lower standard now - buffet ok apart from the cake/dessert awful fake cream and loads of it. The beds are no longer turned down due to Covid - really? The Stewart still comes in to put the next days entertainment sheet on the bed (no chance of a choc now!) I somehow think that Princess will hope that we have forgotten and it’s just something else that they can ‘dub down on’ for the future. Although the ship was only booked to half full due to Covid it was extremely difficult to find somewhere to sit during days at sea - we would not want to be on this ship when full. We bought shuttle tickets to allow us to have a wander in Belfast - as usual the tours were very expensive and the one for Belfast not very long - if testing was so important before boarding the ship. Why were we not tested before boarding after Belfast? Booked the evening meals as directed to on the tv - why? Still queued to enter the restaurant and no one ever asked what time you had booked for. As for the tv - just about all you can get is news channels - wifi package inc with our booking but didn’t explain that it only covers one device - I’m sure that I could find more but that’s enough! - Katherine Jenkins was Great!!
