So' Roger and Di, what are you saying? Do you want to start a disillusioned club, a rail against Princess Society or a "Let's get together and sue 'em " Organisation ? I've heard about this cruise and it's short-comings and the weather but I am not sure whether you want to express your frustrations or to do something.....Nei.

The Sapphire Princess sailed from Thailand although Princess knew what weather was expected. It missed 4 ports out of 9 and when the subject of compensation came up, the Captain dismissed it out of hand until he was presented with a petition of some 1800 names. (port charges having been saved)At one stage, no information had been given about the cancellation of one port until 9-30am whilst passengers had waited for their tours in the lounges from 7-00am !The cruise director was very offhandish, implying that it was something the passengers had to put up with! The outcome was that each passenger was given an on board credit of $250 and 50% off of any future Princess cruise. There is loads more to comment on but perhaps some other passenger would like to comment.

So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...

This morning a two night cruise on Celebrity Silhouette went on sale for 28th April next year.This will be the first time Silhouette has sailed from Southampton so a great opportunity to see the ship without the hassle of flying. At a lead-in fare from just 299pp including all drinks, food, entertainment and gratuities, it was a bargain.Silhouette takes nearly three thousand passengers and as I write this, there are only a handful of cabins remaining which we expect to see go in the next hour...

Last week I enjoyed an extended weekend away to visit my family in Wales, mainly to celebrate my beautiful nieces 18th birthday. It was lovely as I had my own family with me for the weekend part, then I had some well needed pamper time with my sister (well a dip in her hot tub!) oh and yes it was my birthday also so went to see Coldplay in Cardiff.Cardiff did not disappoint, 41 years on from the hottest summer ever, it was bucketing rain all day! A bit like last year when I saw the Manics in...
