We have recently travelled on the RCL Navigator of the seas taking my daughters 14 year old friend with us. When we booked we were told by the travel agents that a noteary would be needed which is a legally signed document obtained by a solicitor. This document provided us with permission to give medical permission and all other info as per previous comment. We were told that if my daughters friends parents didnt obtain one that when we checked in at the port she wouild not be allowed on the ship. Travel agents quoted approx £25 for obtaining this letter. Wrong, standard fee is approx £85.00 and this was quoted by 3 different solicitors. Beware of this added cost. To make matters worse this form was not asked for at check in, boarding the ship, any of the on board activities like rock climbing. Have since reported this to RCL.

Better to be prepared and have the letter than having to cope with a hysterical 14yr old at the port who is not allowed on the ship isn't it??

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
