Well,Hadley from Dartmoor you certainly "STIRRED" the waters with this question ,looking at some of the replies.IF its PRESTIGE you want,perhaps a trip to the moon on a completely different type of "SHIP" would fit this catagory.

Well i have been cruising all my life and i would say i am from a middle class. when i have been on cruising there have been a mixture of people but i think the type of people on board do not matter as we are all unique and we are all friendly together. i would worry about that.

The Saying is you pay for what you get, go on cunard and get the "UPPER CLASS " ON THE VICTORIA WITH THERE OWN TERRACE WILL THEY MIX WITH YOU ?, if you are genuine all classes of life will mix , if you pretend to be something you are not then you will be found ou.

I've noticed plenty of 'divs' from all backgrounds.

PURKISS - Answered a Question by Hadley (27 Jul 07 18:27)

Being on a cruise ship is a lot like life, all classes holiday together and each find there own place (even on a ship). We have been P&O customers for 10 years but are now moving over to Cundard, we are descerning people from a working class background but we do not think we are something we are not! We have met great friends of all classes, wealthy and not so wealthy but there is a now a niche opportunity for cruise lines to cater for those who do not want a 'holiday camp' at sea but still leave UK waters.

Cruising certainly has altered over the years, it is nearly 40 years since I took my first cruise, it is now more affordable for people that it was then, it is far cheaper now to go on a cruise tha it used to be, therefore a different class of people, do go cruising, which isn't a bad thing really.

We will cruise with anyone - and love the mixture -but we won't cruise Cunard because of the class system - which is what it is however you dress it u.

I take it you are on a wind-up? In that vein, yes, as my benefits have risen so much these last few years, I am now able to take more than just the one annual break, so tend to take a Med cruise in the summer as well as a ski holiday in winter. The only problem with cruising is that we do meet the odd couple - no pun intended - who are there not to relax and enjoy themselves, but simply to regale unfortunate fellow travellers with all the top cruise lines they've travelled with - upper deck of course. If these people ever stop talking about themselves and ask what cruising I've done, I just tell them I've only cruised on Hampstead Heath, which normally moves them on quite quickly.

Middle East! Get Your Act Together!

By Freddie Moser

With all of the conflict happening in various parts of the Middle East, I can’t help thinking that they are missing out on a huge financial boost from tourism.Look at the success of places like Dubai, a haven in the middle of some of the most dangerous countries in the world right now. A place I have travelled to twice, both on a cruise, and as a holiday destination. It oozes quality, and has amazing weather to boot.But to the immediate North of Dubai, sits Iran, which shares its border...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
