The Canaries or the Med if you are going from Southampton, it also depends on what you want to see / do, if you like beach holidays then the canaries, if you like sightseeing/culture then the med....

That depends on so much. What time of year are you thinking of? How old are you? What are your interests? Are you 'party people' or do you prefer things a bit more sophisticated? Basically, western Med/Canaries for sun, eastern Med for history (and sun), Norway/Iceland for scenery and wild life (sometimes sun) and the Baltic for culture (and sun if you are lucky). Early and late season probably Caribbean if you like beaches. Have a good time where ever you go.

It depends where you have visited in the past, although we did Egypt 1st, Canaries 2nd, etc all destinations we tried were 1st time visited,the most memorable places to me were Venice,St Petersburg and of course Egypt cause it was our 1st cruise!but it is as Cooke says ........................

The Mediterranean is a good start as you can easily do your own trips from the ports, exmaple if giong to Rome from thr port it is 9 euros into Rome by , time trains can be obtained form the internet. However it is only a ten minute walk from the port and the eployees at teh station are so used to the tourists it is not a problem. The Carribean is a case of going off ship and bartering with the taxi drivers. But always go with alist of where YOU want to go and do not let them take you elsewhere. Many will take you to some wonderful locations that the tourists do not go to. Wherever you go do your research , on line first. We always look in the dorling kingsley or other travel books and decide where we want to visit at your destinations. Also do not forget to check the weather in the areas you want to go. A cheap cruise may mean the end of a hot season! or just travelling from one area to another. Also do you want to be at sea for a long period or do you want to visit different places? When packing bear in mind that whne you arrivfe on ship you may not have your case straight away and it may be hot and you may want to have a swim. We always carry our swimming gear with us, towels are normally available on board. Havew a great time. Always ask on this website about places and things to do as there is a wealth of knowledge out there from seasoned travellers.

I've done quite a few cruises (including OV) but the last one would be perfect for first timers who want the choice of formality or the casual approach. It was Voyager of the Seas out of Barcelona. Short flight, easy transfer, fantastic ship, great destinations (Villefranche, Livorno, Civitavecchia, Naples and Palermo). All of the day trips can be done under your own steam at low cost - I only spent £150 for the week on board!!! - and RCCI are pretty good at delivering a quality product.

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...
