As a pentioner I ask, do you take up less space or do you eat or drink less? We can't support the campaign against age discrimination and then ask for favours for the elderly.

They are businesses and need to make profit. Please give me one GOOD reason why they should subsidise pensioners who want to cruise. .... Neil.

Well said Neil. Also why should those of us who are still working (especailly those of us in education, who HAVE to travel in high season), pay more to subsidise OAPs? I'm not far from that my self, but I won't expect subsidised holidays.

Pensioners dont get any where near all the hand outs we give to all the asylum seekers in this country who havnt contributed a thing! Come on you lot,we should look after our pensioners better and the single supplements are outrageous!

Instead of going away 4 times a year just go once - on a cruise. Get a friend to go with you and share a cabin to keep the cost down. Three friends plus you will acheive an even better saving as the third/fourth person discount can be shared between you all. As you are not working then get packed and with your passport in hand, ring round agents for a last minute deal a couple of days before a cruise you fancy is due to leave.

If you really can afford 4 holidays a year then you are infinitely better off than 95 % of UK population and should not bergrudge the fact that you have a TWIN cabin for SINGLE occupancy.

Boudicca gets a refit.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

My first experience of Boudicca was in December 2016 and must admit she was looking very tired and a wee bit old fashioned. This had no impact on our little mini cruise but for some passengers doing longer itineraries I must say may be a bit disappointed. Fred Olsen’s reputation is highly held within the cruise market however with so many glam glitzy new comers it is time to up your game. Prices are very good although certainly not cheap and having sailed with them the service, food an...

Oh its such a perfect day ..

By Betsy Davies

Betsy Davies's blog

It seems Royal Caribbean are not just building new ships and refurbishing existing ships but also investing in a $200 million overhaul of their private island Coco Cay. I think this is the best thing that the cruise lines have done in a while and for multi generational family holidays gets a massive thumbs up from me .The 125-acre beach hideaway will be renamed ‘Perfect Day at CocoCay ‘ It will be rolled out in phases, beginning September 2018 and the completion by November 20...
