You are indeed travelling over the half-term holidays and also Halloween so expect lots of children. We have just returned from the mini cruise to cork and were told that there were 800 children on board (2 of them ours). This in no way spoilt our holiday and I never saw any bad behaviour. Although we tended to watch the evening show and be back in our suite by midnight. If you do have any problems COMPLAIN COMPLAIN COMPLAIN and don't stop until you get something done, when they realise that people aren't just going to put up with it they'll behave. Don't worry you'll have a brilliant time. It is a beautiful ship.

DH was also on the 4n cruise to Cork and he too said that he did not witness one item of bad behavoir on the cruise even though there were hundreds of the little cherubs on board! I guess you never can tell what 'pack instinct' they will develop when you get a gang of them together.

I wouldn't worry too much! Half term is only a week, and children on the cruise would also need to have time off school which will limit the number on board. As a teacher, it has been my experience that parents who pull their children out of school for a holiday generally leave it until the summer term rather than so close to the beginning of the academic year. There will obviously be some sailing on this cruise but hopefully they will not spoil your enjoyment too much!

Dont miss your ship.

By Dawn Gardener

For some reason, there seems to be more and more stories of cruise guests missing their ship when in port. I am on several cruise pages via Facebook and have heard this a lot recently where guests comment on how the ship departed leaving guests on shore because they didn’t get back in time. Last year there was the famous you tube video going around of the couple that left their kids on the ship whilst they went on shore and then missed it as it departed from Nassua with her screami...

Were Turning Japanese!

By Collette Apak

Collette  Apak's blog

Over the last couple of years we have seen a huge rise in the number of people booking cruises that visit Japan. Maybe it’s the fact that many people have done the Mediterranean & Caribbean itineraries and are now wanting to look at somewhere different or whether a certain Joanna Lumley has prompted people’s interest after her TV series? Who knows? But in answer to this demand we are celebrating all things Japanese this week. I would certainly like to take a trip there and see...
