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.

MUSICAS PORTS OF CALL.

By Nicola Milligan

Last time I told you all about the ship so this week we will talk about the reason we actually chose this cruise, it’s itinerary. I have been to Venice a few times now but the sail away never loses it’s excitement for me. When standing on deck I still get goose bumps as this massive ship glides slowly past all the major sights of this charming city. So close you can see into windows and see the faces of the lovers sailing on the romantic Gondola rides. It is unbelievable at how c...

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...
