MS Ambience is the name of the first ship for Ambassador Cruise Lines, now at sea.
Ambassador is a new British cruise operator. Primarily aimed at the 50-plus market, however, they will run a number of multi-generation cruises over the summer holidays. These will be authentic cruise experiences. The new group is up and running, and has retained a few experienced CMV staff to share their experience with the new team. They will still be based in Purfleet, Essex, and sail out of Tilbury.
They aim at being the friendliest, and most diverse staff in the industry, looking to make long-lasting friendships both with fellow guests and crew. They are looking to make a loyal community at sea. We know two things do this, price, and experience.

Saved from the ship-breakers Alang, in India, after the Bitcoin group that bought her failed to establish their new eutopia, she has many expired certificates like a car has an MOT. These will all need to be passed and re-issued and some sea trials have already taken place. In October 2021 it entered Viktor Lenac shipyard in Croatia. Under the name of Satoshi, it began the extensive refurbishment. Now sailing, she is getting good press and reviews. Please message us if you have a film to be added to the collection.
The work continues, but completed work includes but is in no way limited to the installation of new technical equipment, scrubbers, a new water purification system and wastewater treatment system. This classic ship, built for Princess Cruises as Regal Princess, also sailed for P&O Australia as Pacific Dawn. She is still a stunning ship, and once again popular in her new colours.

Ambassador Cruises have the know-how. The Chair of the Board of Directors is Gordon Wilson who has over 30 years of experience in the global travel industry. Ambassador Cruise Line is based in Purfleet, Essex.
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. A carefully curated no-fly programme of 33 inaugural year sailings will visit a total of 88 different ports.
Ambassador will deliver distinguished cuisine, and fascinating voyages working closely with all destinations to adhere to local health guidelines and requirements.
In accordance with The Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018, Ambassador has insurance cover in place to financially protect all guests booking with Ambassador Cruise Line, for all monies paid either directly or via their travel agent. In addition, they will operate a fully compliant independent Trust Account where guests’ funds are deposited and only released when the cruise departs. Their offer also includes a booking guarantee in the event we are forced to cancel a cruise.
Doris Visits lists every popular cruise port, most with maps, tours, weather, and many with our own filmed destination guides – we walk off the ship, into a port, and film what is there. I guess that makes us old YouTubers! Come over and join us – we have tried to explain and show the CRUISE ROUTES as playlists of ports. It might be the easiest way to get a handle on cruising.
Why Doris? It was a character Jean played in a TV show and we started the port guides as a little spin-off. It took over. I mean, rode into town and said this is it.
Who is Jean? Jean is a West End and Broadway actress who now has her own one woman show called Royal Mistresses, which she performs at guilds and on ships. Hence, she cruises – a bit. She now presents TV and is known by many cruisers for her Doris Visits port guides.
Who is Stuart? He had had to learn to point a camera (at Jean) and when on ship, writes cruise crime novels, that all come out of his crazy ‘what if?’ head. He was a radio DJ, a stuntman and went on to be a movie director before writing novels.
Who is their son? Luke Aikman was the young Colin Firth in Fever Pitch and appeared in Freight. He is now a producer and business entrepreneur and has given us two grandchildren (well, we borrow them)
Who is their daughter? Laura Aikman is known for being the girlfriend in the Christmas Gavin and Stacey, and Dyan Cannon in Archie. Some grew up with her Saturday show, Mysti. She has been an editor on the first of the CSCI books.
