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.

Are cruise lines becoming sexist

By Ruby Perkins

Last week Aqua Expedition launched a new sensation but only for us ladies I’m afraid. They have come up with the idea of offering cruises just for ladies.They state……..‘With these cruises, women will have the chance to learn about new cultures and traditions whilst meeting new people who share the same excitement for adventure, whilst being able to enjoy a little bit of luxury at the same time.’Now forgive me for being a little lost with this fantastic opportunit...

Were Turning Japanese!

By Collette Apak

Collette Apak's blog

Over the last couple of years we have seen a huge rise in the number of people booking cruises that visit Japan. Maybe it’s the fact that many people have done the Mediterranean & Caribbean itineraries and are now wanting to look at somewhere different or whether a certain Joanna Lumley has prompted people’s interest after her TV series? Who knows? But in answer to this demand we are celebrating all things Japanese this week. I would certainly like to take a trip there and see...
