We are going on ncl Jewel this August to the Baltic Capitals. We understand ncl to be casual with no dress code and flexi dining times, but it sails from Dover.

Most cruise lines that operate from Southampton encourage "Dressing Up" a few times during the cruise. I personally don't know why some people associate dressing smartly with not having fun or a good time? It is one of the best things about a good cruise to many, including me! The type of thing you are looking for is mainly based in the Med and does not tend to cover Northern Europe. NCL is probably the closest you will get to it sailing from this area to the destinations that you want to visit. Although the Norwegian Jade will be cruising from Southampton shortly, she will be going to the Fjords rather than the Baltic. From what you say, I think that the Norwegian Jewel sailing on regular Baltic itineraries from Dover would probably be your best bet. Happy cruising.

As you may have read in my last blog, I was very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to sample 3 nights on the SS Antoinette, which belongs to Uniworld. All I knew was that the ships were luxurious and this was the top river cruise line to sail on, so expectations were high and I was not disappointed.Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I was met by my own chauffeur – which is when I knew then the trip was going to a be a fabulous few days. The car I was driven in was almost like a limou...

Well, as winter quickly sets in… It can only mean one thing- It’s holiday time!Something that I always make sure of every year is that I get away during the winter season at least once. I think it is so important to get some Vitamin D and wake up to the sunshine when our days at home are so short, dark and damp. This November, I have two weeks off work and I have 2 holidays to look forward to. Starting with The Gambia and finishing with a rural retreat in Mid Wales!Everybody keeps...
