We done Pompeii on our own. Make sure you get your tram ticket from the kiosks before getting on or you will incur the wrath of the inspectors as well as a fine. Be careful at the central train/bus/tram station as the pickpockets are waiting! Not a nice place to be.

I have never been with Island so I don't know the quality or price of their excursions but for all of those ports you have mentioned I would explore without the official tours. Get as much information about the ports from the web and the official tours and then decided what you would like to see. It's invariably cheaper DIY ....regards Nei.

A Right Royal Caribbean Dress ...

By Hannah Wilson

Over the last few years there has been a general drift towards more casual attire during the evening on certain cruise lines. P&O and Cunard have done away with semi-formal evenings and now just have Formal or Casual attire while Celebrity have introduced Evening Chic which is really evening casual by another name. The latter is proving especially popular with men who no longer have to find room in their suitcase for their dinner suit, also those who hate formal attire when they are on ho...

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...

We have all been horrified by the news recently of the terror attack that took place in Westminster and in particular on Westminster Bridge.
