We are trying to pre-book excursions on an NCL cruise in May but are experiencing problems. NCL advise that they only have a certain number of excursions available to pre-book on line. Has anyone else experience problems and managed to resolve the issue. Clar.

Yes they are expensive but dont forget if you have any problems with the bus etc , the ship/agent will do whatever it can to get you back onboard, if you did it independantly and your taxi broke down or didn't pick you up then its your problem. as for numbers available i reckon they have a set number available on the website and keep letting people book, its best to book early to avoid disapointment as it can be chaos on board when people want to book last minute ,as for spa not sure on that one sorry , great ship by the way have a good time .

We went on the sea princess to the caribbean in january of last year. we didnt go on any of the organized trips but just either jumped into a taxi at a resonable rate or joined with another couple and done the same. we didnt have any problems doing it this way. and we got to meet other passengers and interesting taxi driver.

Yes you can do the trips cheaper yourself BUT if you break down miss the bus back etc etc you will be waving to the ship as it leaves without yo.

I will be sailing on the NCL Jade Oct. 25th. I am so frustrated trying to find out what the shore excursions are and how to book them. I find that I have to have a username and password to log in to get this information. I don't know why this should be a problem. I'd like a list of the different excursions available at each port so I and my friends could decide what we would like to do. Thanks for your help. Caroline Hal.

Head to the Caribbean for some...

By Rosie Taylor

Are you heading to the Caribbean for some winter sun?At this time of year when its cold and wet we start to think about sunnier climates!The Caribbean is a great place to travel to during the winter months. In fact, the sun shines for most of the year and the temperatures stay consistent.Last year the Caribbean was hit by 2 massive hurricanes, Irma and Maria. Some islands were very badly damaged. Most have managed to re build the resorts and are back to normal. The cruise ports are very much ...

Just before Christmas I was invited to Birmingham Airport to take a look around Emirates Airbus 380 while she was doing her very quick turnaround from landing to take off.It seems each time the airbus lands at Birmingham it brings lots of joy and excitement! Our first sighting was just after 11 when we saw her circling the skies waiting for her landing slot, the view from the conference room was great and she came into land right in front of us! I must admit I am definitely not a plane spo...

Well as a mother of four kids I am firmly in the no camp but there are others who are firmly in the yes camp.Me, my four kids, and my DadI think that there are arguments for both sides on this and the main one is the behavior of the children at hand.My children are no angels and they are warned when we go away that they are to treat their elders with respect and to not cause issues with other passengers, however there are times when some of the other passengers should also be responsible for ...
