We are joing the Century in Amsterdam on 6th September for a 13 day cruise calling in at yes Dover; Antwerp; LeHarve; Le Coruna; Lisbon; Gibraltar; Seville; Palma and then finishing off at Barcelona. We love the Century no climbimg walls or the like great crew and good food. The weather not guaranteed but this next one should be OK on the nice new Solstice with its superb looks something eveyone has commented on and many regard as a 5 star or 5 star plus. It leave Rome on 7th September 11 Night Eastern Mediterranean Cruise calling at Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy, Santorini, Greece, Mykonos, Greece, Istanbul, Turkey, Ephesus (Kusadasi), Turkey, Athens (Piraeus), Greece, Naples/Capri, Italy, Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy. Some food for thought.

Thank you, just before I asked the question, I requested a brochure from Celebrity, as we have not cruised with them before and considered it may be an option, and we would just about manage without climbing walls we do that enough at home! We have previously cruised in the Med at this time and the weather has been great. However, we have also been in the Caribbean over Christmas & New Year and not had any rain, unlike the last cruise. The climate similar to cruise ships appears to be changing rapidly. Thank you once again.

Lots of info so thanks..... I would suggest for Christmas Celebrity's new Solstice class ships in the Caribbean. The Americans do not celebrate Christmas in the same way we do, it's a little more subdued but nice and the tend to go for New Year in a bigger way. Good food, good entertainment and lots to do, and a really beautiful class of ship. September is a bit too early for the Caribbean so for something more gentile and smoothly sophisticated try Azamara Quest in the Mediterranean. She can reach ports that others can't reach and offers great food but less spectacular entertainment although it's quite personal. I've sampled them both and find them top class for the price paid. ...... Neil.

A mini cruise to remember..

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through www.CRUISE.co.uk. Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
