Could heartily recommend either of the two we've done. Fred Olsen's Breamar to the Baltic or P&O Arcadia to Caribbean Panama & Mexico. Hooper, Sidmouth.

Personally I would avoid Indie during the school hols due to the vast number of children on board. However as you are not yet dead I would also avoid P&O. Why not try my personal favourite Brilliance otS out of Barcelona???? Sitting in the Champagne bar with those views can't be beat IMO.

This man has a way with words ...but he's right you know. Brilliance of the Seas is a special ship and for a special time and for your first cruise set that as a standard for future cruising. Best wishes and Good Luck .. Ida.

Come on folks, this lovely couple do not want to spend the first/second day of their honeymoon in an airport; or on a charter flight. If your choices are between those indicated, go for the Oriana....and a P&O Celebration Pack, sailing from Southampton with no baggage restrictions. Have a great honeymoon folks. Richard .

...Book BA direct flights, go out a few days early, treat yourself to a great hotel in Barcelona like 1898 and have a few days in one of the best cities in the world! Enjoy the atmosphere, architecture and the chilled bottles of Cava!

I guess that would be fine for the likes of you and me, for whom money is of little object these days. However, these good people haven't indicated they have a bottomless pit and are just setting out on married life. Regards. Richard .

My Cruise Experience of the Tu...

By Richard Smith

Last week I sailed with Thomson Cruises on their new TUI Discovery 2 which has been recently acquired by Thomson and was formerly the Royal Caribbean Legend of the Seas.I hadnt sailed with Thomson before and although I had generally had a very positive response from my clients about them I had been a little bit put off personally by the smaller size and age of their fleet of ships.With Thomson now taking on some of these larger (medium sized in real terms) ships with a more modern design, thi...

Single Supplements Not The Fau...

Freddie Moser's blog

After having my head bitten off yet again this week for simply doing my job, I thought it was high time to set the record straight about prices and supplements for single travels and inform people of the role of the agent, i.e me.In the cruise industry we have many guests in the higher age range, down to the relaxing nature of a cruise, the luxury element, and a lot of the time, because the non-retired can’t afford the time or the money during their work schedule to take in a cruise.Nat...

Off to Rockley

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

Well it is finally time for my holiday. I am off to Poole in Dorset tomorrow to stop at Rockley Park for 11 days. I am really looking forward to a break and spending some time with my husband. We have had a busy year so far and as I am heavily pregnant with our first baby due in August we haven’t been away at all yet this year. It has been so hot the last few days with the heatwave we had and now the weather is turning and the forecast isn’t great for our time away. I wouldn&...
