With NCL we enjoyed the Freestyle dining and not having to dress up for meals. Would love a comparison to this on other lines offering similar particularly Grand Princess. On a hot/warm evening we just do not want to dress formally. Look forward to your review and hope it helps us plan our next "informal/freestyle cruise". Thanks.

You either book your cruise for fixed time dining OR anytime. If you want a cruise line that not only is fully anytime dining but also DOES NOT take money off you for 'service charge' (£10 pppd on many lines)or charges 15% service on all drinks etc. and Includes all tips in the price - try Ocean Village cruises.

Go Karting at Sea

By Jamie House

You can Imagine my excitement this week when the new NCL Norweigian Cruise line announced another first at Sea with the Launch of Norwegian Joy.This in true Norwegian style is set to be a fun ship with typical freedom dining and the laid back style we have become accustomed to with Norwegian. Where this ship is innovative and different is with the rather exciting launch of the Worlds first Go Karting track at Sea.This is no ordinary go Karting track your little ones and adults alike will be a...

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 ...
