This will be our fourth cruise with NCL. We also are booked June 22nd. We pick NCL because of the freestyle eating arrangements and I do not have to pack a tie and coat.(You can always dress up and still enjoy ityou just do not HAVE too.) We have never been on the JADE but expect the same service we received on other NCL cruises. Excellent! Laundry can be expensive however once a cruise there is a laundry special....Pay attention for it--it will save a ton of money. Also tip will be added to your bill--Extra Tipping therefore, is for exceptional service. (always tip the bar people,it will pay off in the end.

We went on NCL Dream last July to the Baltics & we thought it was very well run,food was excellent & the standard of hygene was second to none. The two main restaurants served a great variety of food.

This morning a two night cruise on Celebrity Silhouette went on sale for 28th April next year.This will be the first time Silhouette has sailed from Southampton so a great opportunity to see the ship without the hassle of flying. At a lead-in fare from just 299pp including all drinks, food, entertainment and gratuities, it was a bargain.Silhouette takes nearly three thousand passengers and as I write this, there are only a handful of cabins remaining which we expect to see go in the next hour...

Last week I enjoyed an extended weekend away to visit my family in Wales, mainly to celebrate my beautiful nieces 18th birthday. It was lovely as I had my own family with me for the weekend part, then I had some well needed pamper time with my sister (well a dip in her hot tub!) oh and yes it was my birthday also so went to see Coldplay in Cardiff.Cardiff did not disappoint, 41 years on from the hottest summer ever, it was bucketing rain all day! A bit like last year when I saw the Manics in...
