It's unlikely they will change tour excursions to suit individual needs, so why not do the same tour by cab. All the taxi drivers will know the tour by heart & you can save yourself a wad of money into the bargain....Regards Wilba .

If you take a ship's excursion that runs over a lunch hour it is normal practice to see that you do not suffer hunger pains so lunch is invariably included. This also gives a welcome break to the "follow my leader" style of group excursions. I would suggest that you follow the fine advice given by this astute person below and do your own thing, far more dignified although if you suffer hunger pains you can follow their example. Lucy X.

Thanks very much Lucy. i have been on cruises before and tried my luck with local cabbies. So this might be a very good idea, although I must say that I never had excursions with lunch included and I never suffered any hunger pains, as we always left some 'break time' during our shore visits. There is a difference between having a snack and carrying on with your visit and having to wait for a group of people to eat in a restaurant. It is all time consuming. So venturing on your own is very probable. thanks and happy new year.

P&O and Cunard have done away with semi-formal evenings and now just have Formal or Casual attire while Celebrity have introduced Evening Chic which is really evening casual by another name. The latter is proving especially popular with men who no longer have to find room in their suitcase for their dinner suit, also those who hate formal attire when they are on ho...

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

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 ...

New Ban hits flights from UK ...

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...
