Depends what time of year you want to go. As neil Down says there are loads of 7 day caribbean cruises, however some people don't want to fly that far just for a week. if you prefer a shorter flight to join your ship, the the Eastern or western med are good destinations as long as you are going between May and October otherwise might not be that hot. All the cruise lines operate there. To help narrow doen your search decide whether you prefer acruise with some formal nights or prefer something more casual. Also decide whether you prefer most of the other passengers to be Britsih or would prefer a mixture of different nationalities. The 2 Italian cruise lines MSC and Costa have a younger age group than some of the other companies. Whatever you pick and wherever you go, I'm sure you'll have a fantastic time. most people enjoy their first cruise the bes.

My first cruise was on Royal Caribbean and the nightlife and atmosphere was fantastic. They have some good 7 night cruises around the Greek Islands and Med.

Boudicca gets a refit.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

My first experience of Boudicca was in December 2016 and must admit she was looking very tired and a wee bit old fashioned. This had no impact on our little mini cruise but for some passengers doing longer itineraries I must say may be a bit disappointed. Fred Olsen’s reputation is highly held within the cruise market however with so many glam glitzy new comers it is time to up your game. Prices are very good although certainly not cheap and having sailed with them the service, food an...
