The Celebrity ships and service are higher than the Royal Caribbean ships even though they are the same company. But you get what you pay for and Celebrity is more expensive. For both of these you will get a more American attitude to the deck games and the service. Some people don't like this. As far as I am concerned both these cruise lines knock P & O into a cocked hat especially of late. P & O have, since the "Merger", cut so many corners that their standard has dropped in so many aspects and I will not be using them again because the alternatives out there are far superior. You will get a lot of people contradicting with this but I am willing to bet that the majority have tried nothing else so they have no gauge to measure with. Am I stirring it....yes because I think it is time P & O pulled their socks up.....Neil Down.

We went on Legend of the Sea in 2006 sailing from Southampton and we really couldn't fault it - we had a balcony cabin which was always kept immaculate - all the crew were more than helpful. The dining room waiters etc were great and food was really good. We have been this year on Navigator of the Seas from Southampton and we found the same service on there and staff couldn't do enough for us. Anyway hope you enjoy Legend of the Seas - I'll be surprised if you don't.

I travelled on Legend last summer, and have also sailed on Adonia, Oceana, Oriana and Artemis. To be honest, I thought Legend was very, very similar to the P & O ships of a comparable size. Have a great cruise.

We had a fantastic cruise on the Legend last year. Food, service, accommodation, entertainment all wonderful! We were so sad when the holiday ended as we had met some wonderful people who went out of their way to make it a truly magical holiday. I am sure you will love it.

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

So last week was a pretty busy week for me. Living up in Lossiemouth I had a training course in Glasgow on Wednesday and a training course in Edinburgh on Thursday but the highlight of my week has to have been my Ship visit onboard the Caribbean Princess. She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
