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.

Five Of My Favourites !

By Camilla Edwards

The group was on second sitting which was 8.30 in the main dining room The Romeo and Juliet. The choice in there was great something for everyone and the staff were very attentive and gave us their recommendations at every meal.Also in here you can have A la Carte Breakfast from 7.30am to 9.30am an...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
