    Ratings are always a mute point. For interest sake what would have made the ratings on Braemar a 5?

    I too went on this trip with my 17 year old grandson. I agree with all your comments and enjoyed trip. Was more an expedition than a cruise. Brilliant experience!!!!!

  • Sharp, Halstead - Commented on this review

    We went on the same Cruise and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was more like an expedition than a cruise but that's what we went for. The flights, embarkation, and disembarcation were faultless, the cabin light and airy with very attentive service from Pat. The facilities on the ship were to a very high standard as was the entertainment. The Neptune lounge is too small with poor sight lines to the stage area, it was standing room only if you didn't bag a seat early on. A pity as we missed some top class entertainment when it was standing room only. The dining was to a high standard, however the lack of dedicated wine waiters was a problem if you liked a drink with dinner all in all the waiters were too rushed and too few looking after too many tables. The tours were very good. We were in a Gardeners Group arranged by Cruise Co (Thanks to Jo Cunningham) the dedicated lecturer for the group was Tony Russell who has a wealth of knowledge on plants and tree of all kinds. All in all a really good experience PS I am the bloke who dropped the Cayman in the Canoe on the night Cayman spotting tour!!

  • brown, Rotherham - Commented on this review

    Hi we are booked to go next year my wife has nerve problems in her leg which means that although she can`t walk for a long time without a rest would it be worth booking the 2 day jungle trip she doesn`t mind if she misses the odd walk and stays at the lodge.

      Apologies for the delay in reply but first time back to the site for some time...! We found the two-day excusion to be a real high point during the whole cruise experience. If your wife is able to walk and manage steps it would be worth the risk of booking as once up and into the hotel complex area the walkways around the hotel bristled with life the whole time. We got some of our best pictures of sloth and macaw from here. So much may depend on the height of the river. When we arrived the level was quite low so the walk along a rather narrow connecting gangplank type pathway up onto the main walkways was quite long and steep with limited help with baggage. Although the jungle walks were not especially arduous getting to the small boats at the hotel does involve quite a few steps down to the river.

        30 mins walking will not be necessary to reach the hotel from the comfortable boat that takes you from Manaus to the hotel. I'd suggest that Fred Olsen's descriptions will err on the side of caution to avoid claims from those that find the going too tough after paying. Any Fred Olsen reference to 'two hours' on this trip must surely be related to the individual tours that operate from the hotel as part of the inclusive package. Have you seen the actual itinery? This particular 'shore excursion' is very popular and only very small numbers may be booked. By the time we boarded there was no opportunity to book - sold out. If you are keen to undertake this exceptional shore option, I'd advise to book as soon as the web-site permits.

They don’t discriminate against you because of your age and unlike other companies they will continue to cover you even if you are over 80.Th...

Dont miss your ship.

By Dawn Gardener

Dawn Gardener's blog

For some reason, there seems to be more and more stories of cruise guests missing their ship when in port. I am on several cruise pages via Facebook and have heard this a lot recently where guests comment on how the ship departed leaving guests on shore because they didn’t get back in time. Last year there was the famous you tube video going around of the couple that left their kids on the ship whilst they went on shore and then missed it as it departed from Nassua with her screami...
