Hi,lovely idea!if you go to www.princess.com and search gifts there are flowers drinks packages and gifts from the ships shop that you can order.Also if you go to cruise personalizer on the same web site and put in your name and booking reference you can add in requests but be careful your friend will be able to view this also and spoil the surprise.What a lovely thoughtful friend you are.have a nice time.

Have a quiet word with your waiter or the Maitre D'. On most ships they are usually willing to organise a surprise or 2 at dinner for special celebrations. On ships that I have been on in the past, they've organised brithday cakes complete with candles for the whole table, arranged sernades 9sometimes the waiters themselves with more enthusiasm than musical talent and sometimes som eo the musicians from one of the bands) Why not phone or email princess cruises before you depart and see what sort of thing they can offer or help you organise? Hope you both have a fantastic time. be warned though, most people catch the cruising bug on their first trip and keep wanting to go back agaian and again.

I have noticed on Royal Caribbean website you can order different things for birthdays etc. Check your cruise website of ideas.

If you advise the Maitre D in the resteraunt, they will arrange for a cake to be delivered to the table and the wait staff will sing happy birthday (this is generally free of charge). Should you want to do something a little quieter, take a look at the following page:- http://www.princess.com/onboard/services/celebrations/special.htm.

If you look on the net for the island you wight be visiting on or about 23rd Feb and then check for helicoptor trips. They are so special and so many of the Caribbean Islands have them....now that's different and so is a limo trip to a nice restaurant or beach....once more you can find it on the net...Is that what floats your boat?

At the age of 47 I have never really had to worry about travel insurance and tend to use one of the insurance comparison sites to get the best deal.I did this recently for my daughter who has just turned 18 and her boyfriend who is 20 for their weeks trip to Gran Canaria.My daughter was diagnosed with Epilepsy in May 2016 and as such is a declarable illness to any insurer. When I was shopping around for a quote on the comparison sites the cheapest I could find was a Single Trip Policy for the...

In my last blog, I compared the drinks packages so I thought I would look at something else that people are constantly asking for on their cruiseWIFI. I wanted to do a comparison as to who offers the most reliable and best value at sea and whether its worth signing up for or waiting until you get to port to use the free Wi-Fi.Royal CaribbeanCost: $10-15 per day. Must be purchased for entire cruise.Ill start with Royal Caribbean, they claim to have the fastest Wi-Fi of any cruise line with the...

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

Well Summer is here which means there is usually a lot going on with holidays, days out and spending time with family and friends. It has certainly been a busy start to the Summer for me and the calendar has already taken a beating with lots going on over the last couple of weeks. I started the month with 4 nights away with a friend at her apartment in Fuerteventura. We flew out on 28th June and returned on 2nd July and had a lovely time chilling and relaxing although it was very very hot.T...
