I too have sailed Splendour, Granduer and this year Independence and the cocktails are fantastic! The guys in the Sky Bar and Champagne bar can make anything and are very generous with measures. There are a lot of posts on this site huffing and puffing about tipping and added service,well my experience with staff is you get out what you put in,ie pay the service,affect a rapport,be polite and tip an extra couple of dollars occasionally and BINGO! you get great service and full strength cocktails. Its not sad that a cocktail is important as great food and drink are paramount to my holiday enjoyment too.Have a fabulous cruise!

My sentiments exactly, if you travel through life treating people as you would expect to be treated yourself then you will never get into all this tipping meanness. What Scrooges some poeple are. We still keep in touch with a lovely little Phillipiono bar steward from the Brilliance and have found all the staff wonderful, and it is a pleasure to meet them and to repay their kindness. Thanks for your good wishes....cheers!!

Not half as sad as deciding to start collecting the cocktail glasses and having to drink only certain ones that gave you the option of paying extra and keeping the glass. The problem is I actually dont really drink much as so was forcing down all sorts of weird concoctions just to add to the collection-tragic!! Bottoms up! Regards C Guy.

As a cruise consultant, in recent years we have seen huge growth in our Tailor-Made and Bucket List itineraries; few more popular than visiting Japan and Korea. We have the cherry blossom Japan tours with the bullet trains, Hiroshima and Robot Cabaret shows. Some of our Princess and Royal Caribbean itineraries visit Seoul in Korea.Right now the world waits in anticipation as Trump flexes his muscle over the Far East.

Norwegian Cruise Line to Add ...

I find it hard to believe that given the amount of family friendly cruise options around these days, all of which include swimming pools, some even large scale on board water parks that it’s not compulsory for cruise companies to employ lifeguards, especially when you consider some of the recent tragedies that have occurred.Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that it will be joining Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines in employing certified lifeguards at all of the family pools acr...
