Which? reveals the top cruise companies (but not to me!)

Postby Dave » 30 Aug 2014 10:11

I've just come across this intriguing tweet:



What? Fred Olsen and Saga in joint second place? :o Tell me more!

I followed the link in the tweet to the Which? website, but there my research ground to a halt. I'm not a member and I don't want to pay to find out the full results. :(

So I took a screenshot. I'd like to know the full results but for now I'm just happy to see Fred and Saga ahead of certain other lines. ;)

Sadly, Costa and MSC are probably much too foreign to be included. :roll:

Do we have any subscribers to Which? who can tell us the full results?

I find the results qite surprising and would love to see the full table but I'm not a subscriber to Which either.

Hurtigruten at the top surprises me- not that I've ever sailed with them. :?
Perhaps we should give them a try. :think:

Not a subscriber either! Just happy that FO > Cunard!
Looks like you will be in for an underwhelming experience next week Jill and by all accounts I am in for a terrible time!

Great to see Saga rated so highly - and alongside FO too. Bit surprised about Hurtigruten as their range of cruises are quite small really - just the regular services up and down the Norwegian coat, although I think they do some Antartic cruises too, don't they?

Bearing in mind that most subscribers to Which are British the list makes interesting reading with American lines fairing well under these circumstances. I wonder how British lines would fare if a poll were taken in the USA?

I just wish I could say with any degree of certainty what constitutes a 100% 'British' cruise line. :?

I gather that Carnival Corporation is a British - American company, but I've no idea how 'independently British' Cunard and P&O are.

Fred Olsen, while based in the UK, is a Norwegian-owned cruise line.

I believe that Thomson (TUI) is a wholly British cruise line, as is Saga.

I wonder what's meant by a 'British' cruise line, and which ones qualify. :think:
