Berlitz, as usual, are right, there are several minuses to Princesses larger ships including the fact that you have to allow a lot more time to get around it but this you have to put against the pluses and check it out against other 4 star ships and they are in the same points area. I like Princess and their style but I prefer their smaller vessels....Ida Dow.

Thank you very much for your answer Ida Down, (like it!) but with the greatest of respect, you didn't address the specific points about the cabins and the ice cream/orange juice. Is this really correct as most cruise lines now seem to supply an unending free supply of these.

Yes...yes and ..yes Towels leave something to be desired for a major cruise line. There is space under the bed for cases but we found that drawer and hanging space limited and yes you are charged for ice cream which I find inexcusable and FOJ......still like the line though....Ida Dow.

Presumably you can still ask the cabin steward for a towelling robe if you find the towels too smal.

We went on diamaond princess two years ago and was not impressed at all. Its a fair cruise. Cabins mediocre. They pack them in and pack them high.

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

So last week was a pretty busy week for me. Living up in Lossiemouth I had a training course in Glasgow on Wednesday and a training course in Edinburgh on Thursday but the highlight of my week has to have been my Ship visit onboard the Caribbean Princess. She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
