We did this cruise on the Costa Classica a couple of years ago and loved the itinerary...but we do love the middle east which is not to everyones taste! Our favourite was Muscat in spite of being conned by a taxi driver so (because of our experience) we would advise getting an excursion here! We did the coastal tour in Fujairah which we found interesting, we went to a fish and vegetable market, saw alot of the scenery and visited the Museum in Fujairah which was very interesting. (the excursion chap on the ship was advising not to do this trip as he thought it was boring but we enjoyed it! perhaps he wanted to sell us a more expensive one!) Abu Dhabi and Bahrein we just got the shuttles into town...Dubai the first day we got an excursion to the Spice market and gold souk,and Jumeirah beach, and the second day (flying home late at night) we got the shuttle to a shopping mall. We are not over keen on costa ships (we've done two now) but were attracted by the itinerary which no one else did then... although I believe RCI are doing it in 2010.

So why is a Women Only cruise marketed as a good idea?I cant imagine it will take off, and what kind of women would it attract? Hen parties...

Ships Collide !

By Richard Smith

Watch this video on YouTube.I was shocked earlier this week to read a story of the new Seabourn Encore ship colliding with another ship.It turns out that the collision was minor and thankfully no-one was hurt but what left me wondering was how something like this could happen in the first place.The new ship was docked in Timaru, New Zealand at the time and was actually delayed in departure due to the strong winds there. The ship ended up breaking it’s moorings due to the strong winds an...

Balconies in the Arctic Wou...

By Ben Allsopp

Ben Allsopp's blog

Quite recently with the launch of some very exciting itineraries, I have had a lot of bookings for the Northern Lights and Arctic voyages of late and every customer has asked me for a Balcony. I feel this is because these cruises are for the destination and the clientele tends to be very well travelled.As people cruise more and more, by the third of fourth time- They tend to go for a balcony cabin and it is very hard to go back down to an ocean view or an inside from there.But the point I am ...
