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.

Sorry can't help with that part of the globe, but I'm sure others will. Regards.

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.

Rocky Mountaineer Part Three

By Alana Mills

Kamloops to Jasper.This morning we left for the station early again as the train was leaving at 7.15am.Today I am experiencing the Silver Leaf Service. The Silver Leaf carriages are a single storey carriage but have large panoramic windows with an additional curved glass panel as the roof curves although the centre of the roof is solid unlike on the Gold Leaf. The windows allow you to see the scenery well so dont worry about missing out.The seats were again spacious and comfortable. They are...

P&O Smarten up the passengers!...

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

No doubt you’ve seen the latest notification from P&O outlining their new Dress Code, and its causing some controversy I can tell you!No more ‘questionable’ slogans or images on clothing, no Fancy Dress – only permitted on ‘Theme Nights’, and only what P&O deem suitable. No Denim, Football shirts after 6pm. This type of outerwear will be confined to your cabins! (No mention of Rugby or other sports?) May need more clarification P&O, as wh...
