“BEWARE IGLU INFO”

Written on: 29/07/2014 by DAVIDEFOWLE (1 review written)

I booked a Royal Caribbean Cruise through IGLU in January of this year (BOOKING REF 307943). They were very helpful and informative with the booking as we are first time cruisers. Part of the deal we got free parking at Southampton Port and Free Soda for the trip for my teenage lads. Please BEWARE of the free parking. This has to be booked by 4 months in advance and I was never informed by IGLU in their covering letter, even though they were keen to highlight the payment terms! My invoice from… Read Full Review

“asked for either a balcony or picture window ”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by Bianca368 (1 review written)

we asked for quote on a balcony or picture window on basically any ship going out in july - no balconys available but outside cabin with picture window on a guaranteed basis. - booked on the presumption that iglu staff knew their business but as it turns out they were only after making a quick buck. contracts sent through email and nothing in there suggested we were going to be downgraded despite the fact we could not book onto cruise personaliser. just 7 days before we were due to sail we… Read Full Review

Huge thank you to the IGLU team! Never cruised before, but the pre-information, assistance with booking and travel arrangements - and not least the fabulous holiday have well and truly converted me. As a newcomer to cruising the support from the IGLU team was invaluable in helping me work my way through all of the many different options to find the perfect holiday for me and my family. I found your web based information particularly easy to navigate with the right level of information. I… Read Full Review

“False misleading prices”

Written on: 17/05/2014 by Edgemeister (1 review written)

Looking at booking a cruise from their web site at £1999 as advertised on their web site, only to be told that price is no longer available, the new price us £3400!!!!!! During my telephone conversation it became completely obvious they couldn't care less, and told me their web site won't be updated till Monday that was at 10am Saturday morning. An iglu employee was supposed to call me back with the cost to upgrade my flights, needless to say that didn't happen, what a joke of a company… Read Full Review

“IGLU Cruise”

Written on: 16/05/2014

I have been on over 10 cruise holidays with Celebrity Cruises and P&O Cruises, so I thought I would help my lovely mother to look online for a good cruise holiday and she found a suitable one on Iglu cruise. My mother and I called and spoke with an Iglu cruise agent and we decided on a specific and exact balcony cabin room number at the time of booking. The agent then confirmed the cabin room number we chose was fine and asked my mum for payment. My mum then paid for this specific balcony… Read Full Review

Cruise007's Comment

Written on: 16/05/2014

Subsequent to the above, I am glad to say that a senior member of the after sales team at Iglu Cruise has resolved the issue as far as possible. An alternative cabin of the same cabin grade was found, along with a small gesture of goodwill for the inconveniences caused. This senior member was very understanding and dealt with the matter in a professional matter.

Disgusting indeed. But don't expect much change out of ABTA old boys club. Simply a trade association to protect its members

“Charlatans - just don't go there!”

Written on: 07/05/2014 by grandayout (1 review written)

The Iglu website advertised a cruise I was interested in for £499 so I decided to go ahead. Except when I came to actually book it had gone up to £549. So another £100 extra for two people. Then I made a booking for my mother in law who because she was travelling alone had to pay P&O's vantage fare. This had the option of free parking. So I asked for it to be included. But it's only included if you book 35 days before you sail So I tried booking it 38 days before - no the booking refence… Read Full Review

“POOR BACK UP SERVICE”

Written on: 14/04/2014 by sandradonovan (1 review written)

We have booked the Regal Princess for the July 12 night cruise and last Saturday contacted the airlines to purchase extra baggage allowance. The Inbound flight with Easyjet was excellent £17.00 for another 20 kg bag. However, the outbound flight with Monarch wanted £235.00 for a 12KG bag and wont allow any more than that. So we have rebooked the outbound flight ourselves with Easyjet total cost of £299.00 for 2 passengers and 60kg bag in total. Iglu were not interested at all and offered us… Read Full Review

“Iglu rubbish service”

Written on: 29/03/2014 by Cahill60 (1 review written)

I contacted Iglu customer service to book a cruise; the advisor gave an impression of could not care if I booked or not; the cruise price advertised turned out to be £200 pound more. So my wife phoned again the following day; the service and attitude was the same, just did not want to help; we contacted cruise.uk and the service was totally different; every call was followed by an email asking if we were satisfied with the service from the customer advisor, which was 1st class. Iglu? Never… Read Full Review

“terrible customer service”

Written on: 20/03/2014

I had booked several times with Iglu in the past and had no complaints. Last year I tried to book a Cunard cruise with them and I was interested in a couple of potential cruises and asked the operator to check several prices in different category rooms. He was fine initially and very friendly. He eventually said 'Are you making a booking or not,I have wasted a lot of time on this call and I am busy'. I said I was intending to make a booking but I had now changed my mind, I stated I was shocked… Read Full Review

“Iglu/Cunard cannot be trusted any more.”

Written on: 14/03/2014 by otamiJ (4 reviews written)

We have used Iglu a number of times and did so again for a Xmas cruise on the Queen Elisabeth. This time, several instances of feeling being ripped-off" as Iglu were less than honest over several 'cost' related aspects of the cruise. Once these were referred back to Iglu, Iglu has hidden behind its commercial agreement with Cunard in terms of explaining the "anomalies". We no longer trust them or will do business with them again. With Iglu and Cunard, watch out for hidden "nice little… Read Full Review

“Beware of Uglu Cruises”

Written on: 27/02/2014 by JennaMollaney (1 review written)

Beware! I booked a transatlantic cruise around the Caribbean for my Mum's 60th birthday and she was over the moon and very excited. The problems began when unfortunately her leave from work was denied and we needed to move the cruise. I called their customer care centre who informed me that we would be charged £75 per person to change the booking which was disappointing as other cruise lines such as Fred Olsen waiver the fee if the replacement cruise costs more. We decided to go ahead and… Read Full Review

“Inflated Prices (their commission)”

Written on: 12/02/2014

Wanted to book with Thomson but kept getting diverted to Iglu so WRONGLY assumed that I had to book a Thomson cruise through them. Their prices were £260 more for exactly the same thing that Thomson and Cruise Direct were quoting. I had just booked with Iglu when ten minutes late the other much cheaper quotes came through! I felt physically sick and phoned to complain, as you can imagine Iglu were very off-hand with me and said it was too late and they also told me that gratuities were not… Read Full Review

“Abrupt Arrogant Disrespecfull”

Written on: 31/01/2014 by taybed12345 (1 review written)

Just like to say its the worst cruise rep I have ever spoken to,and I have spoken to quit a lot,and it was as if he did not want speak to you. I found the guy very patronising and rude, best of all contacted the cruise line direct and got a much better deal and a the guy who dealt with the inquiry was very helpful so my advice is ignore IGLU and book with other agents who are pleasant and get you a much better deal… Read Full Review

“It started BEFORE the Cruise”

Written on: 30/01/2014

We've booked through Iglu before. I can't recall a problem. This time the booking went fine. A very helpful advisor took our Cruise booking in about 20 mins. Wow did things change!! After that staff were very cold when booking additional packages. The documents came through and we found it was Easyjet. Ok.. he didn't actually tell us that, nor did we say we didn't want Easyjet, but when we queried this later the rep insisted we were told so. After that it just went downhill. Dinner bookings… Read Full Review

“Never again !! Ugly Iglu !!”

Written on: 27/01/2014 by peldonbell (1 review written)

Booked a cruise and stay package and given an airline that we would never have chosen and they refuse to change the flights. My partner is terminally ill and this was to have been the holiday of a lifetime. She is devastated. Had booked a cruise with them 3 years previously and wasn't thrilled as they told us there were no balcony cabins left and 10 minutes after our booking, friends booked a balcony on the same cruise. Their after sales service is a disgrace and they really cannot be trusted… Read Full Review

“No customer care”

Written on: 16/08/2013

I booked with a very helpful lady. Received an email confirmation which advised I should received the cruise company's confirmation by a certain date. When I did not receive this I phoned and spoke to customer services, who insisted the confirmation had been emailed to me, and suggested I might want to check my junk mail etc. After much toing and froing and repeatedly sending me the original email, I finally received the confirmation I had been waiting for. Several months later, I received… Read Full Review
