Have you got time to price up changing your booking to cruise only with your own flights (Virgin Atlantic are reasonable) we love Royal Caribbean cruises but recently took them on re them opting for cheaper airport hotels pre cruise and lost. Basically we only ever book cruise only now as independant flights allow you to pre reserve seats and we can pick good quality downtown hotels. Believe me the transfers as mentioned below are organised chaos and the extra dollars for a taxi are worth it. Plus if you are smack bang in the middle of Manhatten in a hotel you are between JFK and Cape liberty and can walk most places. We are on a 12 noght Explorer cruise from NY in Jan and have paid £1200 for cruise only, £800 for flights and have the top Barclay hotel reserved at £160 per night but there are cheaper places. Tripadvisor is worth a look if you choose this option. We have obviously factored in the cab costs and booked flights early on the way out to allow more time in NY plus we have opted for 2 nights pre cruise. Enjoy the cruise we can't wait.

Its that time of the year, Christmas has gone and its time to start planning for next year. We often host everyone at our house being that Chris is a chef its kind of expected. Well not in 2017, we have just booked a week on Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas. I cannot wait! I have been on Harmony and Anthem but always with work and only for 2 nights so its not the same experience as being on board with your family for the week.Then comes the decision do we stay in Miami or Fort Lauderdale?

This Is What True Love Looks Like!

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

Happy Valentines day! I hope you are feeling the love today. I thought that I would share a romantic love story which dates back to 1912. This was the year that the Titanic tragically sank, leaving only 705 survivors.On the 10th April 2012 the Titanic sailed from Southampton, there were 2,200 passengers onboard many looking to live a new life in America. We have all watched the film Titanic right? I am not talking about Jack and Rose (boring, the pair of them) I am referring to Ida Straus and...
