Antigua I can help with & maybe others can help with the others. When you get off the ship in Antigua there will be a mass of taxis/vans. A very popular trip is Nelsons Dockyard, Shirley Heights, (look on the web), a drive through the rain forrest & do stop off at one of the 360 beaches for an hour on the way back. A good day to remember.

Following on from Bill…. Bermuda ... The dockyard there is quite interesting with glassworks, shopping and snorkelling. You can also take the ferry across to Hamilton, not very expensive, and wander around the town. It can be very interesting to get a taxi, there will be loads by the ship, and let him take you to various places around to the lighthouse and there are some great beaches there too. There are local buses which are fairly reliable and you can get the Island map and a timetable off the net. Ponta Delgada is a great place and you either need to hire a car or get a taxi to see the interesting bits. I would suggest that you look at the ships tours and decide what you would like to most see and then go with a couple of friends in a taxi. The sulphur springs in the Fumas Valley and the viewpoints was a good trip for us. Go on the net and look at the tourist sites for these islands, that will help and take a look at other cruise review sites too. .... Neil.

So we took them to Poulton Park which I highly recommend to families with young children. Great for 2 years old and up to the age of 6 yrs. Here we saw Peppa pig at Peppa pig’s world where all the themed attra...

The M1 Out of sight out of mind!

By Marie Turner

‘Most have heard of the M1 , that long South-North motorway that connects London to Leeds, but did you know that on a cruise ship they have ther very own “M1”. This is the central busy hub under the passenger decks which cruise members use to make their way round the ship, and on our recent trip on the brand New Majestic Princess we were welcomed to the M1 for an exclusive www.CRUISE.co.uk tour. This eye opening tour was simply mind boogling the amount of people down their...

I cannot believe how quickly my little Norway trip has come around, It’s almost time!On 25th May, I am off on a 5 night fjords cruise on the Brilliant Balmoral. This will be my third cruise on this ship and I just love the Balmoral and Fred Olsen the most! This trip will be what Fred Olsen are known for, based on the Norwegian heritage they say nobody does the Fjords better than Fred!Being a 26 year old cheap means I am certainly not a typical Fred Olsen guest, they tend to attract an ...
