Morton - Answered a Question by ALMOND (29 Jan 09 18:08)

We did the exact cruise, same ship, 3 yrs ago. We booked the transfer with HAL Seward to Anchorage. It's quite a ddistance, probably over 2 and a half hours not counting the stops. We stayed a couple of days there and then flew home. We have cruised the inside passage 3 times now, Van-Van twice and Van to Seward once. The trip that stands out was the day into the Yukon, fantastic day. Obviously we have done quite a few different excursions over the years. The Mendenhall glacier is a popular one as is the side trip down Tracy Arm. Sitka is a lovely town[you can walk this one yourself] and Skagway is the gateway to the Yukon. We have yet to fly the Misty Fiords over Ketchikan 'cos it's too misty and the flights have been cancelled. My son and I kayaked down one of the fiords in Ketchikan the last time we were there and it was an outstanding experience. The husband went to a lumberjack show! Too much information to give in one account. Anything more specific, do ask. It's a fabulous trip. We will go again in a few years time.

Sounds like something that JK Rowling could use a title for one of her novels but in the real world the word supplement strikes fear into the heart and wallet of many a single traveller. We receive quite a few enquiries where people make a comment about supplements and how unfair they are, but is the cruise industry cashing in or are the supplements part of a wider dilemma? Take hotels for instance; they charge a room rate and it doesnt matter if there are two people in the room or one perso...

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...

The ship only has a 710 passenger capacity and is adult only making i...
