You have probably heard by now of the propeller problem when the ship hit a rock. A travel agent should give you an update. The class of ship is also suseptable to engine bearing problems, we have been on the Mill. without a hitch, been on the Summit with a problem that caused some ports to be missed out & just been on the Infinity, without a problem at all. The ship itself is magnificent. The oldst of the Millennium class. The attention to detail is fantastic. Iced facecloths passed to you - by tongs! - as you board back from a day trip (as long as its a hot country!) waiters taking hold of your tray & finding you a table in the buffet bar. A very varied entertainment in the theatres, not just 'Broadway shows', but things like a concert pianist, a violinist, this sort of thing, more upmarket than other ships. This is a highly rated ship by US travel magazines, 90,000 odd tonnes & is a great way to cruise. We would have no hesitation on going back on her.

Benefits range from discount on board to priority booking and exclusive on board benefits. But are they really all its made out to be or are we limiting our options by being loyal.Im going to focus on P&O because they are the most popular but a similar comparison could be made with other cru...

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries.

It has been over 10 years since I last visited Singapore, but my Mother in Law is a regular visitor.

During this visit, she was also treated to a lovely weekend in Bali!As I sat looking through the pictures and listening to the stories, I was amazed at how much Singapore has changed. So, I have done a short interview with Jane, who has also kindly let me share some of her wonderful p...
