Hi Neil Down - I am Mrs Okill of Lee on the Solent. I couldn't miss the opportunity to tell you that my husband takes far more luggage that me, including DJs in 4 different colours!

Cheaper to purchase beforehand and you have the added bonus of using again when you realise how good you feel and book more cruises. Dress for success.

If cost is a factor for a Tux have a look in Matala.

Yes, Matalan is the answer to all your worries. A complete dinner suit for £50 and it can be worn time and time again. I purchased my husbands last November for our 2nd trip on the QM2. He wore it to a charity ball 2 weeks ago and it will be packed in his case for our trip on the QV this May. "Now, how's that for value for money" and that comment was from my brother-in-law who purchased his from Matalan for a trip last July on the Orient Express to Venice.

If cost isn't a factor then hire away but if you feel that this is unlikely to be your only cruise then buy one and use up some of that luggage allowance on yourself, let's face it the other halves never have any qualms about how much they take! (Ida takes more than the Queen and Mrs Bucket put together)....Nei.

Hi. M&S have dinner suits from £50 to £200. I purchase a £50 one for my QE2 this year and i looked every bit the part. Plus then you own it and can re-use it again and again. More economical than hiring.

Traditional or Freestyle ? Whi...

On board Carnival Glory and Carnival Conquest passengers who opt for first or second sitting traditional dining will be turned away from the restaurant if they are more than 30 minutes late for their selected seating. So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...

Most of you will know I already have two wonderful children, Aimee and Rafe.They’re currently 9 (Aimee will be 10 in September) and 6.But I’m about to join the difficulties of finding 5 berth cabins!

One Stop Shop !

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
