We had an all inclusive holiday at the escape hotel and spa a couple of years ago (not linked to a cruise) and thoroughly enjoyed barbados. Bedroom was comfortable, ours was in the main hotel building, but people we met who were staying in the garden rooms, had problems with insects. Staff were friendly and helpful, food was quite good, buffet style at lunch, most evening were waiter service, and the garden restuarant, where you had to book in advance was very good. WE didn't try the spa so can't comment. The hotel had direct access to a lovely beach with swimming and water sport area. We took a couple of organised excursions - one was on - i think they called them "wave riders" a sort of cross between a jet ski and a dinghy - where they took us out to snorkel over a wreck - great. We also hired a mini moke for a few days and just drove around. I loved the Chattel village in Hole town - great for souvenir shopping. And of course Bridgetown well worth seeing. Hope you have a great tim.

By Alana Mills

Kamloops to Jasper.This morning we left for the station early again as the train was leaving at 7.15am.Today I am experiencing the Silver Leaf Service. The Silver Leaf carriages are a single storey carriage but have large panoramic windows with an additional curved glass panel as the roof curves although the centre of the roof is solid unlike on the Gold Leaf. The windows allow you to see the scenery well so dont worry about missing out.The seats were again spacious and comfortable. They are...

P&O Smarten up the passengers!...

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

No doubt you’ve seen the latest notification from P&O outlining their new Dress Code, and its causing some controversy I can tell you!No more ‘questionable’ slogans or images on clothing, no Fancy Dress – only permitted on ‘Theme Nights’, and only what P&O deem suitable. No Denim, Football shirts after 6pm. This type of outerwear will be confined to your cabins! (No mention of Rugby or other sports?) May need more clarification P&O, as wh...
