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.

Dont miss your ship.

By Dawn Gardener

Dawn Gardener's blog

For some reason, there seems to be more and more stories of cruise guests missing their ship when in port. I am on several cruise pages via Facebook and have heard this a lot recently where guests comment on how the ship departed leaving guests on shore because they didn’t get back in time. Last year there was the famous you tube video going around of the couple that left their kids on the ship whilst they went on shore and then missed it as it departed from Nassua with her screami...
