Freemantle - Answered a Question by Potts (15 Nov 08 12:26)

I have heard lots of positive things about this ship. We are going on her in May next year so will write a review on our return. I suggest you go to the P&O site and register on her Community section. You will find there is a section on the Ships area of the site devoted to Artemis and you will be able to read what people who have been on her say. You will also be able to ask any questions you may have. Hope this helps.

Http://www.cruise.co.uk/cruise-reviews/search/?searchsubmit.x=30&searchsubmit.y=13&reviewcruiselineid=&reviewcruiseshipid=11&reviewdestinationid=&action=search This web ref should take you to the Cruise Reviews or use the button above and under ship select Artemis and those reviews don't look too bad.

Answer by peterson west yorks. 15/11.08 I have travelled on the Artemis twice. one when it was the Royal Princess. and one as Artemis. I am also going up the Amazon in Jan. 2010. We found the Artemis a really nice ship. very smart and very much like home from home. crew and officers very friendly. nothing too much trouble for them. entertainment good. and food very good. i agree with Freemantle. Fareham about going on the PandO site and following the links. we may meet you on the amazon cruise.

Reead the reviews on this site first - she is not liked by all. Many feel the cabins to be very small.

Travelled on Artemis earlier this year. Food was good as was service although the ship is somewhat dated now. We thought the cabins were a reasonable size and the public rooms are well laid out and spacious. Buffet dining is a trial to endure on this ship. The buffet seating is so cramped and only one counter seemed to be in use at any one time so we had most meals in the main dining room which is fine. The decor is restful, some would say bland. Crew were fine -helpful and accommodating.

What is the dress code?

By Rosie Taylor

This is a question that comes up quite a lot when deciding which cruise to book.It really does depend on the cruise line.The general rule is 2 formal nights per week.How formal is formal? Well, this is a good question because recently a customer of mine came home from a cruise with Royal Caribbean and even on the formal nights some people where really casual. Trousers and polo shirts. Not even a shirt and tie!It seems that Royal Caribbean have really relaxed the dress code.Celebrity cruises ...

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
