If you are thinking of the carribean that time of year remember that they have hurricanes, and then returning to New York to snow blizzards. We got caught out at sea with a hurrican on our first Western Carribbean. Check your weather before booking.

The only cruise that really suits your criteria is the Queen Mary 2 cruise from New York, however, to be able to sail from New York down to the Caribbean and back is a minimum of a 10 night cruise, you then have to take into account an overnight flight back, which will take your holiday duration to 11 nights, this is not incorporating the pre/post stays you have requested. There are a couple of alternative cruises, I will gladly assist you in discussing your options, you can call on the number at the top of this page and ask for Jonathan, or any of our advisors will be able to help you.

After recently returning form a 6 day adventure to the Fjords on Fred Olsen Balmoral it is easy to see why people have such affectionate things to say about them. Many of my colleagues feel the same way regarding Fred Olsen. It is just the feel of the ship when you embark it just feels like you are back home. Maybe this has something to do with the smaller ships so much more personal and so much more warmth than the larger ships.I sailed from Newcastle which was fab for me living in Leeds , o...
