Cruised on this ship in july to the canaries and spain/portugal. crossing the bay of biscay was quite rough this time but we have cruised to the med before and had no problem. number of people were sea sick but then alot of people were okay including my wife and myself. our cabin was at the rear of the ship on deck E and there was a little motion but nothing to write home about i have suffered worse journeys on the ferries from northern ireland to scotland. the ship is really nice and beatifully presented. the staff are excellent and food was great so you should really enjoy yourself. regarding the stability of the ship she is a little top heavy i thought due to her size but it would take very rough seas for you to notice any problems although the lower and more central in a ship you will experience less motion. this really is a beautiful ship and i think you will really enjoy it .

We have a cabin on Lido deck , front of the ship starboard side. The ship should balance nicely if we both sit on our balconies at the same time.

Because of this, the increase in people wanting to sail from the UK has risen. Very much a stress free start to your holiday, no worries over how much luggage you can take, all you need to do is get to the port.But did you know that it is not just ...

Why I never pre pay my gratuities

By Chris Halford

Chris Halford's blog

Almost every day I have conversations with customers around gratuities and if you are a first-time cruiser it can be confusing, and you may not be sure what the best etiquette is.Cruise lines would prefer I tell you to pre-pay your tips because its better value, or because it helps you budget for your trip, but personally I would rather be upfront and honest. Tipping, for me, is a personal thing and each person has their own ideas about what is the right thing to do. I used to always be an ad...

Is Smaller Better?

By Lesley Millward

Lesley Millward's blog

There are so many of the larger ships out there, and they do seem to be getting bigger and bigger don’t they! My lovely client Mr S asked me recently to give him a list of all the smaller ships that he could choose, because he isn’t a fan of the bigger ones. Point taken Mr S. I actually prefer smaller ships too.Of course, it is interesting to note what actually defines a smaller ship? To some people it would be about 2000 people, to others about 300. A smaller ship may not hav...
