Wigg - Answered a Question by Gronow (29 Jan 09 21:51)

When we went on this cruise a few weeks ago, they were no longer offering the day trip to Marrakesh, so it may well not be an option. We booked the excursion to Taroudant, which is much nearer and supposed to be a 'mini-Marrakesh'. Unfortunately, we could not dock due to high winds, so I am unable to tell you whether Taroudant is worth visiting! However I understand that the drive from Agadir to Marrakesh is extremely long and tiring, so this may be why it was withdrawn.

That's really interesting and helpful - perhaps there may be others who managed to get to Taroudant. I hope you enjoyed the rest of the cruise. Win.

Themed cruises all the way.

I had to smile this week when I read about Bonnie Tyler making a guest appearance on board ‘Oasis of the seas’ to help get passengers in the spirit to experience the Solar eclipse. Very clever Royal Caribbean, it’s almost as good as an episode of ‘Homes under the hammer’.Bonnie will be belting out her 80’s hit ‘Total eclipse of the heart’ alongside American rock dance band DNCE in the Aqua Theater about an hour before the eclipse next week. You ...

Southampton Port Parking I...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

I always think arriving at the airport or port is really the start of the holiday but last time I cruised from Southampton it was a bit of a nightmare and very stressful. Traffic jams between Oxford and Newbury made us, and many other passengers, late to start with and on arriving at the cruise terminal the queues were horrendous to say the least. Sitting in a car for an hour and a half looking at Ventura is not the best start to anyone`s cruise. Fortunately we had booked Valet Parking so on...
