Generally speaking the starboard side going up and the port coming back. but normally she does stay with the port side facing the glaciers but I'm sorry to say this is not always true and they normally dock facing in different directions in the ports. So really either side is a good side....Leanne Down.

When we were going on our Alaskan cruise a few years ago, one of the first questions we asked to some officers on another cruise was "it is worth having a balcony stateroom on an Alaskan cruise." Popular consensus was no, and the reason for this is the best place to be when going through the inside passage is on deck. The Captain will call out where the wildlife is and if you are on your balcony, you can bet your life the wildlife is on the other side of the ship. You can miss so much if you stay on your balcony. Definitely invest in a decent pair of binoculars, you will need them to see bears in the distance. Also take warm clothing because the weather is so unpredictable, freezing one day and warm the next, and make sure you have an umbrella with you. The scenery is breathtaking, you'll have a fantastic time.

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...

We have all been horrified by the news recently of the terror attack that took place in Westminster and in particular on Westminster Bridge. It was devastating to hear that a Police Office lost his life along with other innocent people who were walking on the Bridge that day. They say the attack took 86 second in total but will have a lifetime effect on many. My Brother in Law works in the Houses or Parliament and, in his words, was told to run for his life when the attack was taking place ne...
