Actually, it depends on the ship. Sea Princess operates in the caribbean during the autumn and winter months and provides 15 night cruises. The ship IS mainly British based. Was on this ship during Easter 2008 and of the 2000 and odd passengers, 1800 were Brits, approximately 80 were North American. Princess is an American cruise line and caters a lot for the yanks. During Easter 2007 we were on Crown Princess and of the 3200 passengers, only about 600 were British, the rest mainly American or Canadian. If you want a British feel aboard Princess, go with Sea Princess.

You've not said which part of the world your considering boarding. If it's Caribbean expect high American contingent. If it's Europe expect British with a fair proportion from the country of port of departure. If it's UK Expect UK bods.

It would be Alaska so I suppose from your answer, possibly a high proportion. I had been recommended Fred Olsen but cannot see a trip from there. Any ideas Wilba which would be a good cruise line to go with. Thanks in advance.

We always sail with HAL when travelling in Alaska[3 times so far] and yes, the passenger profile is def. American but that is a big plus for us. We prefer to travel with a company which has a passenger list with an American bias.

Hi we have just returned from our first cruise on board the grand princess and we were only 2 of 56 brits on a ship that has 2,600 passengers and i have to say had the most fantastic time. All the people we met were lovely most welcoming warm and chatty.in fact the only bad experience we had was one formal dining eve we sat on a table next to a french couple who once knew we were english turned their back and spoke french all through the meal,needless to say after the main meal we left.but that was the only bad time.we enjoyed ourselves so much we booked nother cruise whilst on board.

The world of cruising has always offered past passenger dicsounts in order to promote loyalty but in recent years many cruise lines have scaled down their generosity. P&O, Cunard and Fred Olsen all offer less discounts now than then used to.MSC on the other hand, despite being one of Europe’s largest cruise lines are keen to increase their British customer base and are extending their loyalty scheme to non past passengers too.MSC have always had one of the best past passenger scheme...

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
