Hi, I live in newcastle and have also sailed with Thomson from the Tyne three years ago. I was a little nervous as this was the first time a cruise ship had sailed from the Tyne. I can asure you that the staff are very organised. Stewards are on had to help you park your car and your luggage is taken from you there. The terminal is fairly small but you`ll find plenty of seats and refreshments available. Once you`ve checked in your luggage you may wish to walk to Royal Quays ( a large out of town retail park about 100 yards away. As well as shops you`ll also find cafes, bars etc) this helps pass the time. I`m planning on watching that cruise sail out of the tyne as I am going on it the following week (Iceland) so i`ll give you a wave from the Tyne as you sail out of Tynemouth. Have a great holiday.

We are sailing from Newcastle on a Thomson cruise in May. I am perplexed as no one seems able to tell me exactly where the car park is located.

No fly cruises have now become so popular. Each year, as the number of people taking cruise holidays increases, so too does the number who want to cruise, but dont want to fly. There are many reasons why people prefer no fly cruises. Here are just 10 of the more popular reasons.(1) We live on an island! No matter where you live, youre probably closer to the sea than you realised. So, its probably just as easy to get to any of the major cruise ports as it would be to get to an airport. Cruise...

My husband and i have recently returned from a cruise on Symphony of the Seas to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and without a doubt it was one of the best cruises we have done. We arrived in Barcelona on 27th April and had one night at the Onix Liceo Hotel which is centrally located about half way down Las Ramblas on a side street, and is a great location for a pre cruise stay if you are looking for something central.We took a taxi to the port the following morning where the check i...
