This is not something to be worried about, certainly with the newer ships. Most ships actually have a high pitched speaker, which when pointed at any oncoming threat would burst their ear-drums. There is also very good protection with onboard security - fully trained for such emergencies - and coastguards. This was certainly the case with Princess cruises.

A Seabourn vessel was attacked off Somalia a while back but frankly if you choose a mainstream cruise company on a standard Med/Baltic/Caribbean route you are at more risk of being attacked by a pilates class. These large vessels are worth $500m+ so you can safely assume the cruise companies and their insurers ensure adequate protection is in place.

Every cruise passenger is attacked by pirates. You usually find them at the Tours Desk, trying to spin a yarn about their shore excursions at exhorbitant prices when most can be done independently for a fraction of the cost.

They are all Cruise Ship Godmothers!Every time a new ship is set to launch we still love to guess who will be chosen, Godmothers lists are like reading through ‘Who’s Who’ list for the Rich and Famous (and also not so famous)It is a tradition to have a famous name to christen and bless a new ship and become the Godmother (not so many have Godfathers…)A ship Godmother by tradition is a well known face chosen to name the ship to bestow good luck and divine protection ove...

Friendliest Countries in the World

By Zara Kelly

Zara Kelly's blog

The inspiration for this blog comes from some clients who are travelling to Sri Lanka on holiday this year. I visited the pearl in the Indian Ocean a few years ago, and was blown away by how friendly the country is happy to chat to strangers about spices through to cricket, a passion there!I think speaking to locals give you a real insight into the destination. Other than Sri Lanka, the friendliest place I have been to is Japan, where people will literally stop you in the street if you look ...
