It is probably the next one to go out of business. Everything is relevant but for a singular answer Easycruise and good luck to you. ......Neil.

Neil. You beat me to posting a similar reply earlier on, but out of interest I've just had a look at the Easycruise site and priced a 7 day Greek Islands cruise in June. The cost has taken me aback somewhat. It is quite possible to get a considerably less expensive 7 day cruise on RCI's Splendour of the Seas than on Easycruise (which is only half board)! Please note that I used the phrase 'less expensive' rather than cheaper as I have no wish to insult RCI in any form or manner. The 'Half Board Meal Plan' menu has to be seen to be believed (and I shall leave it at that). A strong candidate for going out of business I would say.

It doesn't matter how cheap a cruise is since people will still have a good old moan about quality and/or the lack of free water and/or the prominence of the Italian language/kids when they get back.

I have recently read a very interesting book about the ill fated Titanic. The fares were just 33 guineas for a standard cabin, now that is cheap! Incidently, it must have been a truly magnifient vessel, and the blind trust that the captain and crew had in her. Sovery,very sad.

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

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 ...

A Port guide to Le Havre

By Trevor Smith

Trevor Smith's blog

I’ve done a couple of cruises now that visit Le Havre but on both occasions, I chose to stay on the ship and enjoy the facilities there. Next time I think I will get off and explore, weather permitting. Here is what I missed and what you could do when visiting this lovely French Town.A Taste Of Normandy Unlike the rest of France Normandy is blanketed in apple orchards instead of vineyards. For centuries these apples have been used to make a bubbly fermented cider and distilling that cid...

Her Majesty and I have more in...

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

I love smaller ships, I don’t need a choice of 14 restaurants, multiple bars and lounges, rock climbing walls and ice-skating rinks, if anything it is too much choice and I find you end up flitting from bar to bar all evening, not settling in one place. Give me a Fred Olsen ship with one bar, one lounge and one theatre and I have all I need thank you very much.A couple of years ago I had the chance to visit the Hebridean Princess, the little ship that has been chartered by her Majesty f...
