Yes, we have just also cruised with Ocean Village 2 last week, and much prefer the more basic choices on the Island Cruise Line, more english food available, always the basics there to fall back on. Also quite a good choice late at night, and just seems much more friendlier somehow. And wait until you see some of the Puddings, also mid afternoon, they do pastries, which the Ocean Village Line do not do. Nothing is too much trouble for the crew. Will def go back with Island again.

Beachcomer - If you are after a little al fresco food, this is a very popular venue with indoor and outdoor tables where you can come as you are. With 24 hours service you can sit down to anything from a lunchtime snack to afternoon tea or a midnight supper. Dining in the Beachcomber offers a different experience with changing menus and themes 2 to 3 times per week.

They are all Cruise Ship Godmothers!Every time a new ship is set to launch we still love to guess who will be chosen, Godmothers lists are like reading through ‘Who’s Who’ list for the Rich and Famous (and also not so famous)It is a tradition to have a famous name to christen and bless a new ship and become the Godmother (not so many have Godfathers…)A ship Godmother by tradition is a well known face chosen to name the ship to bestow good luck and divine protection ove...

Friendliest Countries in the World

By Zara Kelly

Zara Kelly's blog

The inspiration for this blog comes from some clients who are travelling to Sri Lanka on holiday this year. I visited the pearl in the Indian Ocean a few years ago, and was blown away by how friendly the country is happy to chat to strangers about spices through to cricket, a passion there!I think speaking to locals give you a real insight into the destination. Other than Sri Lanka, the friendliest place I have been to is Japan, where people will literally stop you in the street if you look ...
