I would like to agree with our Devon friend and say that we went in September and had the best whale watching trip of the season, according to the guide, out of Juneau. We saw loads of whales close up and in the distance. Also in Victoria we saw 84 Killer Whales passing by our small vessel, that was also thrilling, but their breath smells somewhat.....Nei.

We did an Alaska cruise with Regent Seven seas and saw plenty of whales...some from on board the ship but for the best whale watching and close up views do one of the whale watching excursions by small boat. It was totally magical--the first time a whale surfaces close to you and breathes, the hairs on the back of your neck will stand on end; well mine did!!!! Have a wonderful trip; Alaska is one of the truly memorable cruise destinations.

They are wild animals. No one can guarantee where they decide to be.

Anyone for Tea?

By Jo Cunningham

MSC Cruises are taking British cruisers seriously and have announced that British passengers will be able to vote on the brand of kettle that is being placed in all cabins on board the MSC Magnifica.Having a kettle in your cabin has always been important to British cruisers. We are people that enjoy a cup of tea in the morning and do not like having to call (or pay) for room service to bring it. I am frequently being asked if there is a kettle in the cabin and it is only really the British C...

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

My NON cruise holiday this Easter.

By Haydn Jones

I’ve just come back from a family Easter holiday to Spain, surprisingly not on a cruise this time. My children are of the age where we have to go away during school holidays.

The weather was absolutely glorious, we were so lucky this time of year to have 10 days of boiling sunshine. Benalmdena is a town on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its beaches and the modern Pue...
