There will be stays available after your cruise keep checking but for those who have cruised before moving from life on a cruise ship to one in a hotel is quite a difference and many prefer the hotel first for this reason. I would see it has a bit of a climb down and have done it the wrong way before and never again but everyone is different.

Agree with others, we stayed after a cruise, never again, to many problem going to the Airport, straight from the cruise no problems as luggage has gone.

Yes I agree With Blyth, most of us prefer to go the other way around. However I'll repeat myself yet again, why do you need to use a brochure. It's very simple, choose your cruise from the cruise line of your choice & departure port of your choice. Choose your Caribbean resort speak to an independent travel agent (try the number at this page) & they will put the whole package together including flights & transfers. It really is that simple!

Hi, Lorraine and Michael I read what Bill said with interest and unless you are really set on the other way round I would give it some consideration. When you go that far you will have the trauma of an early start, the airport and air travel, when you arrive after probably a 10 hour flight and you will be suffering jet lag so to relax in a hotel with no plans to speak of is better than getting used to sea routine when you really want to make every minute count because there is so much to do. I am not saying that you should change from your ideal situation but just give it some thought. Regards. ..... Ida.

And the godmother is..

By Leanne Mudd

Cruise ships are lucky to have some of the most prestigious and famous godmothers. Having a godmother for a ship is a longstanding naval tradition. New ships are to be sponsored by a civilian which is typically a woman. With this honorific title, the cruise ship godmother is selected to bring good luck and protection to the vessel as well as being part of the naming ceremony. The ship is then christened with a bottle of champagne (done by pressing a button these days) as good luck.But this we...

Wonderful Mexico

It was time for my annual week away with great friends. Last year we went to New York, which was a little cold so this year we went to warmer climates.We stayed at Riu Cancun in Mexico which was a perfect location to the bustling nightlife.We boarded our flight in Manchester the day after and inch and a half of snow fell, so yes there was a two hour delay but that did not bother us. 10 hours later we had swapped the minus 2 degrees to a more relaxing 28 degrees.The hotel was fantastic, all i...

Smoking Should NOT be Allowed ...

By Zara Kelly

Zara Kelly's blog

When we book a cruise, part of our job is managing the whole experience. However, this week I have been upset to hear reports that two separate clients have been disturbed by others smoking on their balcony, this was on two different ships ex USA. We all know at sea that smoke is going to blow around!First, let me explain that some cruise lines have a strict no smoking policy in cabins and on balconies, which my clients would have been aware of. Most cruise lines can charge you a cleanup char...
