When we went on the Star last October (and the October before as well!) there were various activities going on onboard throughout the days in port. For example : 10am Bagatelle tournament; 11am deck shuffleboard; 12pm table tennis tournament; 1pm carpet bowls tournament (we did that - great fun!!); 2pm giant draughts; 3pm round the clock darts; and not forgetting the daily poolside trivia quiz at 4pm which was very popular and again a good laugh. So there is plenty to do if you don't fancy getting off the ship. As for Olbia - we called there on last years cruise and to be honest it seemed a bit of a dump. We chose that day to go on one of the bike trips through the surrounding countryside and it was really enjoyable. Hope you have a good time and if there's anything else you want to know,please feel free to keep asking!

So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...

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...
