The cost depends on whether you book morning/afternoon type trip or one that includes lunch or the cost of entrance to smewhere. We never like more then 3/4 hours and our average works out around £30 each. There is always the option of taking a taxi/coach from the pier and doing your own thing, but remember you must be back onboard the time given as they won't wait. We like San Juan some nice shops so we just do our own thing; Lisbon is an interesting city with old style tram cars but it is very hilly in bits; Vigo we never liked some street markets interesting but we never thought much more of it; Le Harve again some nice shops but closed I think on a Monday, but you can grab an excursion to Paris but it is a long day, depends if you want an eye full !! Seriously if you want to budget any trips bought via the ship are charged to your cabin so you pay at the end of the cruise and worry about it when the credit card bill comes in !!

An alternative to Paris from Le Havre is the beautiful village port of Honfleur, just around the bay about 15 miles.

As most of you know we are off on Allure of the Seas in December. I went online and logged onto my personaliser to see what was there and most things are bookable already.

I mean an Aqua Theatre on a cruise ship! This extravaganza...

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests.
