Check on the websites, the cruise company's own & the websites of the various destinations. depends on where you are going, the Med ports of Florence & Rome, for example, are a little bit more difficult to diy as they are inland a bit, but the Caribbean ports are very slick, just walk off, take your time having a look around to see what's on offer, listen to other groups, butt in to suggest 'palling-up' with them, don't be drawn in to the hype & hassle, a favourite of ours is "We've been here many times, thanks we are just having a wander" & they generally walk away to bother someone else You can pre-bbok when you get on the ship but by then a lot of people would have booked online. If you cannot book online, get to the shore excursion desk as soon as you can. Some cruise companies send booklets out prior to the cruise.

I find typing in the name of the place into Google and checking out the various sites which appear is the quickest way. You can also see what excursions are on offer independent of the Cruise Line and maybe get some ideas and possibly save a lot of money.

Not even a shirt and tie!It seems that Royal Caribbean have really relaxed the dress code.Celebrity cruises ...

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
