Ida and Neil Down - Answered a Question by Turner (16 Feb 08 15:02)

Legend of the Seas is not a "vast ship" she's a medium size and even she would move about a bit going out of Southampton. Quite honestly the bigger the better as far as motion sickness is concerned. Smaller ships than that would include most of Fred Olsen’s and Saga but if you are going south you've got the Bay of Biscay to contend with and east the Atlantic and North and East the North Sea so you might have to contend with some lumpy water out of an English port. The Millennium class of Celebrity and the Golden Princess range of Princess Cruises, both bigger than Legend and pretty stable as are several of Holland Americas fleet. One thing you might consider, and it is practical, is to get a train to Barcelona, Venice or Rome and then board your ship which could lead to a far smoother passage as you don't want to fly.....Nei.

Try Saga??? BTW Legend of the Seas is not vast - wait till you see Independence of the Seas - now that is seriously vast.

Maybe you should try P&O's new Ventura, if that is too big maybe you should try the smaller ships in the P&O fleet, Aurora or Oriana, they seem to handle the rough sea's very well. Avoid Cunards Queen Victoria, I found it rocky even when the sea was calm. Have you tried a mid-ship cabin on a lower deck?

Mysterious Myth or Superstitio...

By Alana Mills

Ahoy there!Sailors over the years have had many superstitions that they believed in. It is no wonder if you think about it as they navigated around the world with no satellites or ship to shore in-case of an emergency. Also, bear in mind as going to sea is one of the worlds oldest occupations, the time these myths were established, it is only natural that where inexplicable events have occurred, superstition and myth have played a major role in providing reasons for their occurrence.So here ...

My first Transatlantic.

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I’ve just returned from my first transatlantic cruise. I’ve always wanted to sail into the U.S.A and fly home. To say I’ve been and seen my friends across the pond without flying. I have to say i did really enjoy it. I very much liked the ship. There were a couple of hiccups and if I’m honest I probably wouldn’t do a transatlantic again but I’ve ticked it off. Thais why you have a bucket list to do what you want to do and tick it off the list.It had been 10...

Naples a great port to visit

By Shirley McCue

Shirley McCue's blog

 I remember my experience of returning to Naples as a cruise passenger with fond memories. Most passengers were eager to scramble into coaches that would whisk them away to see the fascinating ruins of Pompeii or drive down to the winding roads of the Amalfi coast on their journey to Sorrento. This was not my plan as I wanted my family to experience some of my childhood memories. Naples is a large city steeped in history with lots of hidden treasures, some a little too far to venture to ...
