Fields - Answered a Question by Richards (08 Aug 07 15:49)

We go with our kids and it is not a problem at all - never found kids running around the ship on Princess at all unlike some other cruise lines. Everyone gets a card and more for security reasons than anything else - we do not allow our children to put charges against the card which you can do so they can not spend anything. Towards the end of the cruise we will go to the shop and get anything that they need. Just authorise your credit card against the adult cards. You can also put some money US dollars against the kids cards and when they run out they cannot use it for purchases again. Not bad that it is in US dollars we have saved so much money this year - our bill was £300 less in May when we went because of the conversion rate. You can buy lanyards from the shop. hope this helps and have a nice time.

La Spezia ? where.

This is a big industrial port so if you have been to both of those cities before not a lot for you to do.We are now finding some ships are calling into La Spezia as an alternative. However the journey can take over two hours each way, so what else is there to do in this area of Italy.I have been recommended by a regular customer a m...

Cuba

By Steve Fuller

I visited Cuba recently and had an amazing experience. The people, the way of life and culture. I learned a lot of it’s history, more than just what I would have learned at school. It was very interesting to see at first hand what life is like there.Being on an escorted tour I was able to see the real Cuba. Not just a few nights in Havana and then spending the rest of our time on a beach. I visited Cuba in-land, I saw the farms, the tobacco and coffee plants and just how the real people...
