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 .
