My husband and I have recently returned from The Colourful Coasts trip on the Destiny. We boarded the ship in Maderia. It was our first cruise and had read very mixed reviews about this ship. All I can say is that we loved it. We had an inside cabin,which at first sight we thought Oh no! how small it looked, but if you take it for what it is, ie somewhere to sleep and to change, it was fine. I used to get up very early in the mornings to see the ship enter the ports of call, no-one(except crew) would be about, it was lovely, it would be so peaceful and very pretty, as it was still dark but you could see the lights of the coastline and the islands coming into view. I had plenty of time to catch up on sleep later! With regard to asking about Keef. I can't answer that one specifically, but I can tell you that I saw 3 of the shows and they were superb. The young people in the cabaret were really good, very comparable to any theatre shows I've seen recently. The costumes and choreography I will always have a very soft spot in my heart for The Destiny because we were treated so well. The restaurant crew were lovely, if the you saw any member of the crew on your travels round the ship,they would always say hullo to you. The food was good, pleantiful and nicely presented in the Seven Seas Restaurant. The only downside to our trip was an extraordinary mix-up about retrieving our passports. We asked 3 times at the Reception for them and even after we had settled up we were told we would get them on embarkation. We took them at their word and thought we would get them as we were leaving the ship. (We were going on for a Stay week in Maderia). We got off the boat and all hell let loose because we didn't have them with us and someone had to run down from the ship to the customs with them. It happened to another couple too, so we weren't alone!!! However,I suppose looking back it all added to the rich tapestry of our time on The Destiny. Have fun on your cruise. I'd go again tomorrow but we have already booked to go on the Artemis next year (we managed to see this boat in Maderia whilst we were there)but as I say I will always have the fondest memories of The Destiny.

We were on the Destiny from 30th August until 13th September. Keef was leaving the ship the same day we were, to go back on shore before joining another ship in a few months. We had a great time on our cruise, and all I can say is that the entertainment team were brilliant.

I can only agree with the above review. We returned on 26th October from a week on the Destiny and had a fantastic time. Gavin in the Cruise Director and Kane is the Assistant Cruise Director. The entertainment they laid on was fanastic. The comedian, George King was brilliant. Hope you have a good time.

The weekend proved another challenge for us with the continuation of crazy, unpredictable world weather. With the absolute devastation of Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean and Miami area of the United States still fresh in our minds we were dealt another blow in the form of a tornado which delayed Diamond Princess arrival for disembarkation into Yokohama by a day.The ship was due to arrive into Yokohama (Tokyo) on Monday 18th September, but was delayed until Tuesday 19th September at 2pm.

Hurricane Irma has certainly made her presence felt in the Caribbean. Florida was relatively lucky compared to the devastation that happened on some of the islands such as Barbuda, St Thomas, Anguilla and St Maarten. Most of these destinations rely on tourism as a source of income for their people and with the amount of damage to infrastructure and hotels this is going to affect their economies severely.In these times of adversity you can see how people rally round and work together to try an...

As most of you all know that I have a big fella called Looney, he is my little baby and my absolute world. He is a boxer and I have had him since he was 26 weeks old, he will be 16 in October this year. I remember the day so clearly when I got him, wow he was such a bundle of joy, his head and paws were massive they just didnt go with his small little body, he was so lively and loving he was just adorable.Anyway I got him when I lost my mum 16 years ago in October this year. I was very poorly...
