NCL - Norwegian Pearl was fab. Loads to do, new ship, not too formal, lots of choice where to eat, freestyle dining, bowling, disco, spa, wide age range of guests - loads of young Americans. Have a great time. L Williams, Morpeth 15 Aug 0.

I agree with Cole of Bristol, I dont think you can go wrong with Royal Caribbean. You have a choice of formal or informal for dining and plenty of onboard facilities plus a wide age group.

Celebrity cruises are fantastic for being pampered and relaxation. Not too many children lovely spa's fantastic food and their speciality restaurants are something else. If you can manage to get a balcony room they are well worth it. Lots of great excursions to do in the Caribbean, try the under the sea trek in St Thomas. Most excursions can be booked on the ship, but you can do on line before to save disappointment.

Do a Panama Canal partial transit from Ft Lauderdale on the Coral Princess - it can't be beaten, and we've cruised with several lines!

My husband and I got married on board the Royal Caribbean ship The Vision of the Seas. We had a great time, ship was beautiful, the staff very attentive and kind. We have been on quite a few cruises, and find Royal Caribbean the best for us. Go for it you will really enjoy it. Congratulations to you both, and have a great timer.

Any of the large cruise companies are good but please make sure when planning your wedding and honeymoon that you do not pick the hurrican season for your caribbean cruise. Aug - Nov sometimes even into Dec can be hit by them. We have done about 20 cruises but our one and only to the Western Caribbean was taken in Sept and the hurrican spoilt our holiday. We couldn't get into most of the ports spend 3/4 of the time Rockin and Rollin out at sea.

Independence of the Seas havin...

By Lisa West

Next week sees the start of our family cruise on board the Independence of the Seas. I have never sailed on the Indy but was lucky enough to be on the launch back in April 2008. I did really like the ship, especially the Royal Promenade so I am really looking forward to it. My biggest concern is how busy the ship will be. Having children at school means I have to travel in the main summer period, which of course jumps up the price but also makes everywhere so busy. Only time to tell..I h...

Venice is Drowning With Tourists

By Lily Canderton

Lily Canderton's blog

The Truth is Venetians do not want to live in Venice any longer as their population dwindles with tourists often outnumbering residents, partly as a result of cruise ship visitors as the mega-cruise ships’ tens of thousands of passengers spilling into its narrow streets and canals, this mass tourism is causing irreversible damage on the fragile lagoon ecosystem and is endangering the environment of the city and its lagoon.Cruising into Venice Italy is one of those magical travel moments...

Yes, Cruises Really Do Sell Out!!.

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

This morning a two night cruise on Celebrity Silhouette went on sale for 28th April next year.This will be the first time Silhouette has sailed from Southampton so a great opportunity to see the ship without the hassle of flying. At a lead-in fare from just 299pp including all drinks, food, entertainment and gratuities, it was a bargain.Silhouette takes nearly three thousand passengers and as I write this, there are only a handful of cabins remaining which we expect to see go in the next hour...
