Neil and Ida Down - Answered a Question by simpson (02 Dec 07 21:23)

There are so many cruises going out of the UK now that your choice is huge providing you don't want to go in the winter when the choice is more limited. I have friends who drive down to the Mediterranean ports prior to a cruise and then drive back after and love the experience. You can also get a train to the Mediterranean ports which, with a couchette or bed, can also be fascinating and not expensive. The Caribbean is fine in the winter and sometimes Fred Olsen and P & O come up with round trips but I haven't studied them recently. As Dell Boy would say ...."the world's your lobster" and I hope you find it to your taste....Nei.

Try any thing going from Southampton easy to get to plenty of parking in some cases this could be free,for 2008 try P&O Arcadia J819 in Sept. Aurora R819 Oct. Go to a specialist cruise travel agent stay away from the high street and the cruise company themselves,lots of agents can give you a very good deal but you would need to book early as the price can go up if you hang on to long and the best cabins have been gone.Having sailed on Arcadia that is an over 18 ship no kids food good cabins not a bad size drink prices ok its aimed at the British market.

Still my favourite cruise to date.I am booke...

After an amazing trip to Lapland and a fantastic Christmas with the family our festivities were cut short as I was taken into hospital just after Christmas. Unfortunately I had to spend nine days there and have emergency operation on New Years day! As you can imagine this was not how I planned to see in the new year but as we all know these things happen and I am very grateful to have been very well looked after and now recovered.I was very well looked after by our amazing NHS, I know they ge...

What No Kisses On My Pillow?!!

By Lily Canderton

Lily Canderton's blog

10 years ago a tradition of the nightly turn down service on ships was a Chocolate Kiss on your pillow but this now seems to be a thing of the past according to a recently returned cruise passengerI hear all the time from passengers that ‘standards are not what they used to be’ with less and less being included and more and more being an added payable extra – Are cruise lines cutting corners just too much?Even the Berlitz Guide author commented that standards are slipping in...
