Firstly - you have left it rather late - several cruises are well on the way to being sold out!! Remember this is peak school holiday season so the ships will be swarming with children [unless you choose a child-free line]. Avoid the Caribbean as it is hurricane season. Otherwise I'm afraid it is down to budget...if you can advise a ballpark figure then perhaps we could help.

Hawaii is certainly a pleasant option as even in high summer the temperature doesn't soar. You might also consider Alaska where although it is peak season there are cabins available. Norway and the North Cape is not renowned for too many children and there are several ships which are adults only although bookings are fairly well on. If you can't find what you want you can take a chance and not book until a couple of months before when special offers do appear even for that time of year. Oh and remember the more expensive the ship the more likelihood of cabin remember the more expensive the ship the more likelihood of cabin availablility....regards Nei.

You dont say how long you would like to go for or what sort of temperature or activity you like best. personally at that time of year and if I were only going for a week, i'd prefer the med. However that's because living in Edinburgh all year I want warmer and drier weather than I get at home!. If you are not so keen on heat, the baltics can be very nice - some spectacular scenery and very interesting ports of call. I echo the comment by Aldrich and not go anywhere near the caribbean at that time of year.

In July, I would suggest a Medirerranean cruise for your first time. Your first cruise is really special and you would have to research which cruise line would be best for you.

Ships Collide !

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

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...

Brilliant News For Solo Travellers!

By Michelle Fennelly

Michelle Fennelly's blog

As a single traveller the majority of cruise liners will charge at least 100% supplement on a twin berth cabin for sole occupancy; this is actually double the price which in my view it is just ridiculous. It isnt fair and its not acceptable and its about time most cruise liners understood that a lot of their guests do travel alone.Well my good news is that Fred Olsen are doing special offers for solo travellers, eventually a cruise liner that has listened to their guests.The deal Fred Olsen a...
