I suggest that you research your Ports and see what you can do yourself - often works out cheaper and more interesting! If you join the meetandmingle then you can converse with fellow travellers pre cruise and perhaps join with them for trips. You should see the site to use.....

It is basically a free get together hosted by RCI and the website alluded to in the above post (that you are not allowed to mention on this site). They will provide drinks, food and freebies if more than 25 sign up. It is attended by senior members of the crew who really are interested in your feedback and comments on the ship. Go to royalcaribbean.co.uk >contact us> FAQs > and then under the On Board section it tells you how. You will have to register (it is free). Once you have signed up you can chat will fellow cruisers as mentioned above. Good way for the kids to have ready made friends once they get on board. I have actually just checked and the boards for all Nov cruises this year are very very active...as these are very popular cruises. Until you sign up that section of the website will be not accessible, but it is right above where all the info is for the ports. Hope this helps.

Independence of the Seas havin...

By Lisa West

Next week sees the start of our family cruise on board the Independence of the Seas. I have never sailed on the Indy but was lucky enough to be on the launch back in April 2008.

Having children at school means I have to travel in the main summer period, which of course jumps up the price but also makes everywhere so busy. Only time to tell..I h...

Venice is Drowning With Tourists

By Lily Canderton

Lily Canderton's blog

The Truth is Venetians do not want to live in Venice any longer as their population dwindles with tourists often outnumbering residents, partly as a result of cruise ship visitors as the mega-cruise ships’ tens of thousands of passengers spilling into its narrow streets and canals, this mass tourism is causing irreversible damage on the fragile lagoon ecosystem and is endangering the environment of the city and its lagoon.Cruising into Venice Italy is one of those magical travel moments...

Yes, Cruises Really Do Sell Out!!.

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

This morning a two night cruise on Celebrity Silhouette went on sale for 28th April next year.This will be the first time Silhouette has sailed from Southampton so a great opportunity to see the ship without the hassle of flying. At a lead-in fare from just 299pp including all drinks, food, entertainment and gratuities, it was a bargain.Silhouette takes nearly three thousand passengers and as I write this, there are only a handful of cabins remaining which we expect to see go in the next hour...
