If you like the idea of all mod cons and luxury yet in a 4 mast schooner (peace and quiet while you sail too)- try Windstar. You can even help sail her if you want!

Simple - Azamara Journey for 12n - pure luxury and no ankle biters - look at their itineraries out of Miami.

Try the QM2 Cunard pure indulgence if you can go the Grills and the Islands arent bad either we went late Feb this year extended stay in NY before and after although very cold but the cruise more than made up for it.

A small point, but no matter which ship you select, get a balcony and you can sit there in glorious isolation with the sun beating down, a drink at your side and the ability to slip back inside for ablutions or a kip whenever you want. As far as the itinerary is concerned, watch out for RCI who have a habit of substituting a day at sea for an island AFTER you've booked.

P&O Artemis - 23 Jan - 7 Feb.2010 - 10 Caribbean Islands, definitely child-free. Ok so she is not a new glitzy whale of a ship, but she is comfortable, friendly and just the right size. Thank goodness P &O have two child-free ships, the other being Arcadia, more modern and larger, but at that time she will be off on her world cruise but definitely worth considering for some peace and quiet away from the screamers another time.

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

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 ...
