I'm sure they will be fine particularly if they go off and do their own thing. There are special arrangements and gatherings for single people on board and the camaraderie they will find will amuse them more than somewhat. With regard to Silverjet, I have often thought of using it so we would be very interested to hear a report........I'm sure you'll all enjoy yourselves ....Ida Dow.

May I first comment on your description "old fogies" which I presume you are referring to anyone on the cruise that is over the age of 60. My wife and I find that people of all ages can have a good holiday together on board a ship. On our last cruise we made good friends with a couple much younger than our selves and had a brilliant time. It all depends on what you are looking for on a cruise holiday. We have been cruising for 15 years and our aim on every cruise is to have a good time. I would suggest that your sons aim should be the same and not depend on just meeting girls to have a good cruising holiday By the way we have sons over 40 and do not consider our selves as old fogies. We often go to the disco until 2-3 in the morning. Let yourselves go the Halstead family and enjoy the cruise .

Middle East! Get Your Act Together!

By Freddie Moser

With all of the conflict happening in various parts of the Middle East, I can’t help thinking that they are missing out on a huge financial boost from tourism.Look at the success of places like Dubai, a haven in the middle of some of the most dangerous countries in the world right now. A place I have travelled to twice, both on a cruise, and as a holiday destination. It oozes quality, and has amazing weather to boot.But to the immediate North of Dubai, sits Iran, which shares its border...

I love smaller ships, I don’t need a choice of 14 restaurants, multiple bars and lounges, rock climbing walls and ice-skating rinks, if anything it is too much choice and I find you end up flitting from bar to bar all evening, not settling in one place. Give me a Fred Olsen ship with one bar, one lounge and one theatre and I have all I need thank you very much.A couple of years ago I had the chance to visit the Hebridean Princess, the little ship that has been chartered by her Majesty f...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
