I have just returned from this cruise which we loved. This was our first cruise experience so we can't compare with other cruises. We found our balcony cabin to be very spacious and very comfortable. The food was very good. We always ate in the buffet because of the range of tasty food which was available. We discovered that delaying our evening meal to about 7pm there was no problem in finding a table. It could be crowded at 6pm. The staff were very friendly and helpful without being too pushy. The itinary of the cruise was magnificent but the shore excursions were very expensive but enjoyable. The entertainment was better than we anticipated. We did find that they took every opportunity to get you to spend. They take photos at every shore excursion but we learned not to pose for them. The photos were nice but far too expensive at $20 each. The charge for internet use even if you have your own laptop was very expensive so we didn't bother. Overall we nloved the experience and would love to go again.

Last week I was lucky to have been chosen to fly to Dubai for 2 nights and then to sample 6* luxury on board the Silverseas Silver Spirit for 3 nights. Our flights from Edinburgh were with Turkish Airlines and we were very lucky to have half of us upgraded to Business Class on the way out, and the other half on the way back.We were late leaving Heathrow which meant we technically should have missed our connection but luckily the flight was held and after a mad dash to the plane (typically the...

Gin…Perhaps the cornerstone of any good night.But when you combine this dastardly potion with Tonic, Ice, Freddie, Karaoke, and 100 plus excitable staff, you end up with blog strap lines such as the above…Yes you guessed it, this weekend was the annual end of year bash for the company, and as with any end of year blow out, there was hard work, and hard play!This year our venue was none other than everyone’s favourite British Seaside Resort of Butlins at Skegness!Usually we t...
