They do a lot of promotions so wait and see if they do special offers on what interests you - the gold /silver jewellery by the inch was very popular and they reduced a lot of the cheaper stuff on the last night. If you buy alcohol they keep it for you - you cannot take it to your cabin. We found the staff very unhelpful compare to the other staff on the ship.

Large area at the back of the ship with the usual array of ships gift souveniers, Diamonds International and lots of Jewellery stations. Clothing, bags accessories etc. One tip on the Jewellery when they say a one night special with xx% off - it is only for that night. We missed out by going back the next day to purchase something but they would not reduce back to what we could have bought if for the previous day.

Last weekend I completed in the London Moonwalk – what an amazing but very emotional experience. Our group The Girls from the Ditch meet at 5pm where we had arranged for a mini bus to take us all down to London.

The day didnt quite go to plan for my sister who was joining me on the walk, her Grandson decided to come 2 weeks early and arrived at 2.30 in the afternoon, so after being up since 4.30 Sa...
