Have not done Med Isles but did Med Essence which shares some ports so hope helps.Corsica-portright in town so we did our own thing taking a walk around the pretty squares, visiting the open market which was great and then strolling around the headland to spendtheafternoon on the almost deserted lovely beach. Rome- the port is 90 mins drive from Rome and really ugly. Did the Island trip with lunch. Manage to see lots including pantheon, vatican, Trevi fountain etc. Expensive for 4 of us but good value. Mahon- beautiful sailing into the amazing harbour at dawn. Well worth the early start to get up onto bridge to watch.The island is really small and easy to get around. The Tourist Office is right next to where yuo dock and useful for maps, advice etc. We wanted a beach day so took a Taxi to beautiful Cala Galdana about 30 mins from Mahon and 40 euro each way. Hope this helps.

What is the dress code?

By Rosie Taylor

This is a question that comes up quite a lot when deciding which cruise to book.It really does depend on the cruise line.The general rule is 2 formal nights per week.How formal is formal? Well, this is a good question because recently a customer of mine came home from a cruise with Royal Caribbean and even on the formal nights some people where really casual. Trousers and polo shirts. Not even a shirt and tie!It seems that Royal Caribbean have really relaxed the dress code.Celebrity cruises ...

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
