The info given by someone who has just returned from the affected cruise says it was a storm in a teacup caused by a family who had been ill in the week leading up to the cruise, despite signing the fitness declaration in Southampton. It seems they left the ship early. It was said that procedures were introducted and P&O handled the problem very well.

First put this in to context. This virus is as common as the cold. It's the hysteria bred by the media that has cruise companies so worried. If you want medical advice I suggest speak to your GP or pharmacist but if you prefer to get your medical advice with a slant of journalisim added you could always go one step further and ask a fortune teller. Top tip, wash your hands - frequently. Use the hand gels - frequently. And if you are fortunate enough to have children make sure these rules apply to them. Good luck, have a safe holiday and I hope you all stay clean and healthy.

Are Thomson (sorry Marella Cruises, bad habit) the best kept secret in cruising?You probably read that question, as I did typing it, with a confused look on your face. Marella Cruises, the best kept secret in cruising, surely not! For most people when you say Thomson or Marella Cruises, and ask them what they think of them, their reaction is often one of displeasure and statements of oh I would never cruise with them or only if I have to. But why?I think for a lot of people, the image they...

FUNICULAR FUN IN BERGEN!

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

So on our recent Fjords cruise on Balmoral myself and Holly decided that having splashed out, quite literally, on the Rib Adventure in Eidfjord that we would just do our own thing in Bergen, get off the ship and wander around, however, just outside the cruise terminal we happened upon a Hop On Hop Off Bus Stop and decided that we would have a tour round Bergen on that, covering more ground. The tour takes around an hour and you get a good taste of the city, Norway’s second largest, all ...
