We sailed from Harwich a few years ago and up the Norweign fjords. We never noticed the sea on the full 2 weeks. Again we did a cruise to the Baltic and the sea is very calm , We did both of these in July/ August time.

The North Sea can be a beggar at times and you can never take it for granted. We had a trip that included Oslo and Hamburg in July with the most attrocious weather and we were on the great ocean-going QE2 so there is always about 25% a chance of some lumps in the water but if you're an optimist there is a 75% chance of good weather just no guarantees. my last trip that way on Constellation was like a mill pond both ways in July. If you have a problem with sea-sickness there are always tablets readily available on most good cruise ships and if the worse happens a jab from the doc on board will cost you but will take all that illness away in a short time and it lasts. Hope that helps....Nei.

Benefits range from discount on board to priority booking and exclusive on board benefits. But are they really all its made out to be or are we limiting our options by being loyal.Im going to focus on P&O because they are the most popular but a similar comparison could be made with other cru...

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...

It has been over 10 years since I last visited Singapore, but my Mother in Law is a regular visitor. The main reason is to visit her nephew and family, but while they are at work she loves to go off and explore. During this visit, she was also treated to a lovely weekend in Bali!As I sat looking through the pictures and listening to the stories, I was amazed at how much Singapore has changed. So, I have done a short interview with Jane, who has also kindly let me share some of her wonderful p...
