Cruise Search

Hi there We did the same cruise last year and are experienced travellers. We took little money and no jewellery ashore while in Brazil. We heard quite a few horror stories when we got back, several people were robbed, not hurt but threatened, So try to find someone to go ashore with or travel light and carry just a bit of cash for water etc. Don't let this spoil your cruise just be sensible they are very poor.

Hi we did the brazil to pa;ma cruise on the island escape in march this year, but have also been on island star, i love both ships. We did trips in brazil and they were all very good and we felt extremely safe. We are actually doing it again this november byt from spain to brazil, and were staying in rio hotel for 4 days at end of it. island cruises are very good, im sure you will enjoy it. the trips are quite expensive but its safer then doing it on your own and you se things you wouldnt see on your own. if you go to recife, id reccomend the jeep safari. have a great tim.

Its that time of the year, Christmas has gone and its time to start planning for next year. We often host everyone at our house being that Chris is a chef its kind of expected. Well not in 2017, we have just booked a week on Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas. I cannot wait! I have been on Harmony and Anthem but always with work and only for 2 nights so its not the same experience as being on board with your family for the week.Then comes the decision do we stay in Miami or Fort Lauderdale?

This Is What True Love Looks Like!

By Amy Ginder

Happy Valentines day! I hope you are feeling the love today. I thought that I would share a romantic love story which dates back to 1912. This was the year that the Titanic tragically sank, leaving only 705 survivors.On the 10th April 2012 the Titanic sailed from Southampton, there were 2,200 passengers onboard many looking to live a new life in America. We have all watched the film Titanic right? I am not talking about Jack and Rose (boring, the pair of them) I am referring to Ida Straus and...
