In my opinion….. it is a very long haul to Caracas and it is quite a dangerous place and holds little interest for me. Very often the port used for this city is La Guajira which is an equally disastrous port of call and only made because it is cheaper for the ships to fill up their tanks. Nowadays there are other POC in that area which are used and which are a much better bet, so stay in them and give Caracas a miss … Neil.

Sorry, not without looking at what is on offer. I am a keen snorkeller but found nothing of interest when I was there, since then I have studiously avoided that area. Maybe some of the other guys and gals will have better news, I just won't go back there and there are some far better POC than that. I'm sure you'll enjoy the cruise though .... Neil .

I have just returned from an amazing month-long holiday. We started with two nights in Hong Kong followed by three nights in Auckland and fourteen nights on board Celebrity Solstice cruising round both North and South Islands and calling in for overnight stays in Melbourne and Sydney. We then had an additional two nights in Sydney and two in Dubai before returning to the cold short days back home.We had so many incredible experiences whilst away but the recurring theme of our trip seemed to b...

I can’t actually believe I am saying this but we are in the last month of 2017! When did that happen? Where has the year gone? I think this every year but this one has went past soooo fast! It seems like only yesterday I was starting January off selling some amazing cruises and it has been a super busy year – I am ready to start 2018 with a bang.December is such a busy month in our household and I like to save some holidays to have time off with Millie – after all Christ...
