Not sure about sailing from Newcastle, most of the cruises from Newcastle go to northern Europe.. The Calypso sailing from Cyprus is adult only and other ships during May/June are adult only but these are fly cruises from Palma.

The answer to your question is YES & NO! Thomson actually cruise from Newcastle around the Baltic and Fjords, but if you want to cruise the Med "ADULTS ONLY" then you have to fly out to Cyprus from Newcastle Airport and join the CALYPSO to cruise around Turkey, Egypt and Israel! Please be very careful though, and if you do decide that this appeals to you, have a VERY close look at the CALYPSO before you book! As I think has already been mentioned, P&O have both the Arcadia and Artemis sailing from Southampton on "Adults Only" cruises to the Med. all through the year. That is what I would recommend personally. I would much rather catch a coach or drive a car down to Southampton than tackle flights to and from the Med.! Happy cruising.

Mansion before our Wedding.

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I got married recently and if you read my previous blog youll see it was in Florida. I wanted to share some photos of the villa we stayed in. It was more of a mansion to be fair. Twelve bedrooms and 15 bathrooms it was well equipped to look after the 20 of us who stayed there.To start the holiday off we flew business class with Virgin Atlantic. I know 20 people in one place sounds like a lot but the size of this place was enough to provide everyone with their own space and you never felt like...
