First time i visited hawaii was december( week before christmas), it was grey, pouring down, with streams flowing down the streets. we were in the hawaiian regent hotel, right on waikiki beach and went to bed with a heavy heart, paradise i don't think so.. woke up day after and opened the blinds to PERFECTION. Absolutely beautiful. Ive been twice since and actually watched A cloud drop some rain on the beach before sailing away, in an otherwise cloudless sky. ive been to many countries and although my first impression of hawaii wasn't what i expected i still considered it paradise. bon voyage.

I got the following after 30 secs on the internet:- We have a saying in the islands... "If you don't like the weather where you are, just drive a few miles and it's bound to change." The islands each have a "dry" side and a "wet" side. In addition, temperature can vary greatly with elevation. For example, the temperature may be in the 80's in Kona and as cool as 45 degrees at the 4000ft elevation on the slopes of Kilauea Volcano. If you venture as high as the observatories on The Big Island, you may even see snow! When packing for your Hawaiian vacation, take into consideration where you'll be going. Kauai, for example boasts the "wetest spot on earth" as well as the sun drenched pink sand beaches of Poipu. In addition to a wet side / dry side, you will also be exposed to wind in some places, especially on the eastern (windward) side of each island and also wherever one of the many volcanoes fail to block the wind... such as on the Kohala Coast on the Big Island. To deal with the variety of weather, it is a good idea to pack light clothing that can be "layered" to keep you warm should you venture to higher altitudes. Of course, you should bring plenty of swim wear, casual shorts, light shirts or blouses - as it is usually warm along the coast... but seldom does it get uncomfortably hot. Temperatures in most of the visitor destinations range between 70 and 85 degrees year round and only rarely get into the 90's or as low as the 60's. Hawaii is truly a "tropical weather paradise".

After an amazing trip to Lapland and a fantastic Christmas with the family our festivities were cut short as I was taken into hospital just after Christmas.

As you can imagine this was not how I planned to see in the new year but as we all know these things happen and I am very grateful to have been very well looked after and now recovered.I was very well looked after by our amazing NHS, I know they ge...

What No Kisses On My Pillow?!!

By Lily Canderton

Lily Canderton's blog

10 years ago a tradition of the nightly turn down service on ships was a Chocolate Kiss on your pillow but this now seems to be a thing of the past according to a recently returned cruise passengerI hear all the time from passengers that ‘standards are not what they used to be’ with less and less being included and more and more being an added payable extra – Are cruise lines cutting corners just too much?Even the Berlitz Guide author commented that standards are slipping in...
