Ida & Neil Down - Answered a Question by Lewis (04 Feb 08 20:59)

If you do not intend to go ashore again immediately you embark, as you are entitled to, get to know the ship, find out what’s where and what’s on, don’t hang about in your cabin waiting for your luggage, it will come. If you don’t like your dining times go to the Maitre d’ and be one of the first to try to get it changed, your table will be notified in your cabin, check it out and change that at the same time if you don’t like it. You are allowed to bring no spirits or beer onboard with you but you are allowed two bottles of wine so if you like wine take advantage of this as it’s the only chance you get to bring it onboard. Before you go read, as much as you can about the ship and about the ports of call. The latter will stand you in good stead and save you a lot of time and money should you like to do your own trips. The staff on Summit are great and will go out of their way to help you. …..There is so much more but I’ll let others take over….regards Nei.

We sailed into Venice a few years ago and we were in a starboard side stateroom and the views as you pass up through this city is superb until you berth and sitting out on your balcony you see it all. As you are leaving from Venice then a port side balcony is necessary but failing that join the other passengers up top but secure your place on the port side early on as it will be packed. This is one of the most spectacular sights have have so far ever seen and I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Please put a review on this site when you come home, as we are on the same ship from Venice on 27th August! Hope you have a great time.

The Perks Of Working In The Tr...

By Collette Apak

Working in the travel industry people seem to think we are able to get all our holidays for next to nothing. The truth is sometimes we get a discount, but often it’s no more than Joe Public would be entitled to. Don’t get me wrong there are definitely perks. I am in a position where I have access to enter competitions that are not open to the general public and I have done rather well over the years. In the past I have won a two week holiday in Florida, a two week holiday to China...
