We bought a limited edition Nechita and several other pieces including a Dali. We had them valued at Bonhams and several other auctioeers and they laughed us out of the place. They might seem like a bargain on board but try selling them then you will find out their true value.

Some people love them, others go for the free drinks but I think that the majority of us consider them to be a waste of space, invasive and not worth a second thought. What is certain is that they have become very popular with the Cruise Lines and somebody is making a whole haep of money from them. I wonder who?....Neil.

Rubbish over valued art with free flowing champers to get the crowds in. Don't waste your time or money.

They are not really an auction as no one seems to ever bid against one another. However, some works are in fact cheaper than high street galleries, so for the art educated, there are some good deals to be had. BUT...be wary of the auction and delivery fees, which can pump the price back up to high street pricing. In other words, do your research before you board and you will do okay. I bought a limited edition Nechita on the Queen Mary 2 for over $1000 less than I could find anywhere onshore. So I dont fully agree with the "rubbish" or the "over valued" comments, as if you go in with your eyes open you can actually grab the odd bargain.

Mysterious Myth or Superstitio...

By Alana Mills

Ahoy there!Sailors over the years have had many superstitions that they believed in. It is no wonder if you think about it as they navigated around the world with no satellites or ship to shore in-case of an emergency. Also, bear in mind as going to sea is one of the worlds oldest occupations, the time these myths were established, it is only natural that where inexplicable events have occurred, superstition and myth have played a major role in providing reasons for their occurrence.So here ...

My first Transatlantic.

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I’ve just returned from my first transatlantic cruise. I’ve always wanted to sail into the U.S.A and fly home. To say I’ve been and seen my friends across the pond without flying. I have to say i did really enjoy it. I very much liked the ship. There were a couple of hiccups and if I’m honest I probably wouldn’t do a transatlantic again but I’ve ticked it off. Thais why you have a bucket list to do what you want to do and tick it off the list.It had been 10...

Naples a great port to visit

By Shirley McCue

Shirley McCue's blog

 I remember my experience of returning to Naples as a cruise passenger with fond memories. Most passengers were eager to scramble into coaches that would whisk them away to see the fascinating ruins of Pompeii or drive down to the winding roads of the Amalfi coast on their journey to Sorrento. This was not my plan as I wanted my family to experience some of my childhood memories. Naples is a large city steeped in history with lots of hidden treasures, some a little too far to venture to ...
