Seeing as you have not had any answers, I will tell you about our trip on Majesty of the seas. It was our very first cruise many years ago. About 1995. The riuns we visited were on the mainland. Tulum. Absolutely fascinating. It was a half day trip, we were told not to eat anything on the mainland. Royal Caribbean even packed us our lunch. Well worth seeing them. Not sure about the 8 hour one though. Grand Cayman, Turtle farm, Hell and the stingrays great also. Dunns river falls, Jamaica. Barbados, Jolly Roger, hilarious. All the other Islands nothing spectacular. Apart from St.Johns. Hired ajeep with some american friends and went to Magans bay. Truly wonderful. One of the top ten beaches in the world then. Have a wonderful cruise.

We visited the Mayan ruins on Cozumel itself and quite frankly it was not worth the effort!!Very little to see and pretty pricey(this was with Celebrity but the principle is the same!!) On Grand Cayman, try the Submarine trip; the sub. is small ; about 30 passengers and you see an amazing amount of fish, turtles etc, not to mention the coral wall itself. If you call at Key West, the tram ride is fun and it's a great place to wander with v. pleasant bars for a little liquid refreshment along the way .. Cynthia .

On board Carnival Glory and Carnival Conquest passengers who opt for first or second sitting traditional dining will be turned away from the restaurant if they are more than 30 minutes late for their selected seating. So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...

Yes, Cruises Really Do Sell Out!!.

By Alison Ranaldi

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...
