There IS ONLY ONE cruiseline to consider for atmosphere and service and that sails out of Southampton - P&O. There is always a very full daytime and evening itinerary and sometimes one of the joys of a cruise is being on board at Port when 75% of the other passengers go ashore - sheer bliss. Not cheap but definitely good value for money when you take into consideration what you get. Book for next year before the end of this month and get onboard credit and free parking at Southampton (or Evesway Coaches - see back of P&O brochure run coaches to and from the Port). Try John Moore at GoCruise (Bristol) on e-mail address - johnm@gocruise.co.uk (Telephone 0117 939195) and say "Kathy sent you!". His prices are usually the best. I scout around about 8/9 Tour operators each time but have booked my last seven cruises with Mr Moore. Sometimes he might be the cheapest by just £20 each but that's a cocktail of the day for a week! GoCruise is part of the Fred Olsen Group so is well backed. Favourites - Oriana and Aurora. Both are family ships but if you go in term time then it is quieter and wonderful. Good luck.

Try Fred Olsen. Most cruises depart from UK, Southampton, Dover and the Black Prince often cruises from Liverpool. Lots do do, even Bingo. Enjoy your cruise whoever you go with .

Where were the P&O Fancy Dress police?

By Kerry James

As many of you know, I am getting married at the end of May and after deciding to have my wedding on land rather than at sea, it seemed only right to have my hen party on a cruise. When the itineraries were released I decided on the Britannia sailing on the 06th April for 2 nights as it was a family-friendly ship so my younger bridesmaid could attend and also wouldn’t miss any school time.Back in November P&O had sent us all letters that they had changed their policies and that as o...
