Patterson - Answered a Question by Walsh (17 Nov 07 17:40)

My hubby and I did this cruise in Februay 2006 and had one of our best holidays. During the cruise we had a Wild West Night, a Red,White and Blue Night, a Caribbean Night and 2 formal nights. Wild West - trying to buy cowboy hats in Dominica. Red, White & Blue - buying bits and bobs in Antigua!! The age group was really mixed, probably starting at around 40ish. I envy you - it was brilliant. If you would like any more details, please feel free to as.

Thanks to Patterson of Bedlington for her answer to my original query. Since you kindly offered to respond to any further enquires, can you/someone please tell me which system is used to pay for goods & services? I've been told by someone who used a different cruiseline (not Fred Olsen) that no money changed hands and final bills were settled at the end of the cruise. Personally I would rather pay as I went along so there were no shocks in store for me! Thanking you in advance.

My 6* Luxury Silverseas Experience

By Kerry James

Last week I was lucky to have been chosen to fly to Dubai for 2 nights and then to sample 6* luxury on board the Silverseas Silver Spirit for 3 nights. Our flights from Edinburgh were with Turkish Airlines and we were very lucky to have half of us upgraded to Business Class on the way out, and the other half on the way back.We were late leaving Heathrow which meant we technically should have missed our connection but luckily the flight was held and after a mad dash to the plane (typically the...

Gin…Perhaps the cornerstone of any good night.But when you combine this dastardly potion with Tonic, Ice, Freddie, Karaoke, and 100 plus excitable staff, you end up with blog strap lines such as the above…Yes you guessed it, this weekend was the annual end of year bash for the company, and as with any end of year blow out, there was hard work, and hard play!This year our venue was none other than everyone’s favourite British Seaside Resort of Butlins at Skegness!Usually we t...
