The cruise ships knock up millions of miles a year, yes it is worrying when something like this happens but hopefully these sort of errors are not an every day occurrence. The Master and his staff all have to be fully qualified but I have been on one ship coming into New York when there was pilot error and we hit the quayside with a bit of a bump, but nothing else some never even noticed it had happened.

How do we know the officers of ANY cruise line are really qualified to sail enormous ships in any waters?? In fact some of the English ships I have been on have had a foreign captain. Just like air planes. Relax Macro, they are all proficient.

Am intrigued by the idea of English cruise ships. P&O, Cunard, Princess - all American. I concede SAGA but it is hard to find an Enlish ship. Although Fred. Olsen Cruise lines is registered in the UK it is part of a Norwegian group.

Miller and Ann.....I don't know of ANY "English" cruise ships but certainly some BRITISH cruise ships.

Disney Magic

By Betsy Davies

Well I have just returned from my 5th visit to Eurodisney with my family .

We were up at 6.30 every morning and in the parks by 9 am impressingly first in the queue to get in on some days. Even though it was February it was still busy so we needed to fast pass some of the ride which always comes in handy. We were very lucky as we had a few days of glori...

Way back in 1996 I could not decide which cruise to do for our honeymoon. Caribbean or Jewels of Southeast Asia. We plumped for Western Caribbean on board Royal Caribbean’s Majesty of the Seas.

So 21 years later we are jetting off to Singapore.After a Manchester Abu Dhabi then on to Singapore with Etihad we will have 1 night pre cruise to hopefully visit Gardens by the Bay and recover from our long flight then bo...
