We sailed on the Artemis last July 2007 round the med the boat is old and tired, needs a refurb launched 1984, it shuddered all round the med and the age group was mostly 70 to 80 did not like it at all, just been on the century (celebrity) similar size boat and it was fantastic much better than p.& o. more value for money.

We cruised on the Artemis last August, the age group ranged from 20s to 80s, we are late 50s. Enjoyed every minute of it, would say fewer younger end then older. It's a lovely ship and food was fantastic. Very relaxing holiday, maybe quieter than other ships as there are no childre.

Smoking Should NOT be Allowed ...

By Zara Kelly

When we book a cruise, part of our job is managing the whole experience. However, this week I have been upset to hear reports that two separate clients have been disturbed by others smoking on their balcony, this was on two different ships ex USA. We all know at sea that smoke is going to blow around!First, let me explain that some cruise lines have a strict no smoking policy in cabins and on balconies, which my clients would have been aware of. Most cruise lines can charge you a cleanup char...
