Ambassador Cruise Line will sail from London Tilbury and offer UK customers an authentic cruise experience effortlessly, and sustainably with a focus on premium value. Ambassador Cruise Line’s first ship, Ambience, will sail from Tilbury in Spring 2022.
After completing its inaugural season in Spring 2023, the cruise line plans to extend sailings from additional regional ports including Liverpool and Newcastle on an ex UK no-fly range of voyages. Ambassador Cruise Line is adult-focused and age-inclusive but primarily aimed at the 50-plus market. The cruise line will run a number of multi-generation cruises over the summer holidays.
Ambience is the first ship within Ambassador cruise line's fleet.
Theirr ships are child-free and therefore for the enjoyment of adult guests only (18 years and above at the time of sailing), except for their advertised multi-generational cruises.
Ambassador offers onboard packages, which include service charges and gratuities. These can be purchased upon booking so that the hassle is taken out of your hands straight away. Take your pick from a selection of three packages and enjoy some great pre-sail savings.
There is no restriction on the amount of luggage that you may bring onboard their cruises that depart from and return to the UK. To reduce the risk of accidental damage during baggage handling, please do not overpack your suitcases and ensure that no one item of baggage weighs more than 23kgs/50lbs. As there are no separate baggage room facilities aboard our ships, all baggage must be stored within the cabin. Under-bed storage is available in most cabins for suitcases not exceeding 23cms depth.
During the day, attitudes are very relaxed, and informality is the key. Casual clothing is quite sufficient during the days at sea and for time spent ashore. On certain shore excursions and at some religious sites, discretion should be used so as not to cause inadvertent offence with inappropriate clothing Advice will be given on board in such cases. Every day, the Daily Programme suggests, as a guide, a mode of dress for that particular evening’s events.
Generally, there are two ‘formal’ or Ambassador nights planned on each cruise when many gentlemen wear a dinner jacket, although a lounge suit is quite acceptable. On these occasions, ladies have a chance to dress up and often opt for evening or cocktail dresses.
On evenings proposed as ‘smart’, a suit or smart jacket and trousers, with or without a tie, for the men is suggested and the ladies have further opportunities to look elegant in a cocktail dress, trouser suits and stylish coordinates.
A ‘casual’ recommendation often covers evenings spent in port or when a special event, such as a deck party, is scheduled. In these cases, the choice of dress is left entirely to you.
Ambassador Cruise Line operate an automatic system whereby an amount of £6.00 per person per night (this amount reduces to £5.00 per person per night for cruises of 16 nights or more in duration) is automatically added to your onboard account. This also includes all service charges for drinks.
All prices onboard our ships are quoted in sterling. A cashless system is in operation for all your onboard purchases. An account is opened for you at the start of your cruise for purchasing goods and services on board. All purchases are charged to your shipboard account and a final invoice is presented at the end of the cruise itemising all charges.
