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.

Do You Have A Bucket List?

By Gail Ryan

Gail Ryan's blog

Do you have a bucket list? If so, what’s on it?Until a few years ago I don’t think I had ever heard this term, had you? I think my first recollection was when I watched a film starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman about two characters that fate brings together in a hospital room and they discuss the things they want to do before they die.There are loads of thing that you can have on your list – it does necessarily have to be about holidays, but I think the majority of ...
