My wife and i have just done the panama canal on brilliance of the seas, if you arrive early in the morning make sure you get a good position on the ship as going through the canal is great! we got up early to get at the front of the ship and it was well worth it. for us once in a life time! enjoy your cruise.

Mercury is one of the older Celebrity ships, we were on it down under in January and February and were well looked after. The accommodation and food are excellent as well as the main menu each night there is a list on the left page of options you might prefer to any dishes on the main menu and we both liked this idea. The canal itself is a sight to to see as you go through the locks at both ends. This link will take you to the live webcams at the locks just cut and paste http://www.pancanal.com/eng/photo/camera-java.html?cam=Miraflores You will see the Centennial and sail under it as you go though the canal. This is a rain forest area so you might be unlucky and have rain but hopefully you will be lucky and it will be sunny. Our final destination was San Francisco and when we woke in the morning of the day of arrival there we could here the ship's foghorn sounding and yes they do get a lot of fog there but it cleared as we got off the ship and moved away from the dock area.

SUPPLEMENTS THE CURSE OF THE ...

By Janet Goodwin

Sounds like something that JK Rowling could use a title for one of her novels but in the real world the word supplement strikes fear into the heart and wallet of many a single traveller. We receive quite a few enquiries where people make a comment about supplements and how unfair they are, but is the cruise industry cashing in or are the supplements part of a wider dilemma? Take hotels for instance; they charge a room rate and it doesnt matter if there are two people in the room or one perso...

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...
