Cruise Search

All purchases on board are 'paid' for using the boarding card issued at embarkation and then the account can be settled at the end of the cruise by whatever means you have arranged to pay by (usually a credit card) can usually check how the spending is going during the cruise if you ask at the reception desk. Hope this helps. My partner and I will be sailing on the Ventura transatlantic in October 2008.

P&O use the same system as most other cruise companies you register your credit card as you check in but if your paying the bill by cash make sure that you have no on board credits on your account as they seem to take your cash first and any credit not spent is lost?

It seems to me these days that people spend so much time moaning and whingeing about this and that, nothing works like it should and nothing is ever good enough, I thought it nice to share the thoughts of this refreshingly positive chap recently stranded on the NCL Star out in Australia.Francis Lahue and his wife were passengers of the Norwegian Star as it faced engine problems last Friday morning after leaving port. The luxury cruise ship was forced to bob without direction 30km off the coas...

Ships Collide !

By Richard Smith

Watch this video on YouTube.I was shocked earlier this week to read a story of the new Seabourn Encore ship colliding with another ship.It turns out that the collision was minor and thankfully no-one was hurt but what left me wondering was how something like this could happen in the first place.The new ship was docked in Timaru, New Zealand at the time and was actually delayed in departure due to the strong winds there. The ship ended up breaking it’s moorings due to the strong winds an...
