$19.95 for each 10x8 print, less for smaller prints. If you buy 4 10x8 prints you get a "free" folder with a photo of the ship on one side and space for one of your prints on the other. For what it's worth, we tend to get a fair number of formal shots taken but leave it until the end of the cruise to select and buy rather than buying in dribs and drabs; that way we don't buy one and then find the next shot is better and we want that one too, which, of course, costs another $19.95! As the cruise director will point out, it costs nothing to have the photos taken and there is no obligation to buy so pose away. Get some done at each formal night and pick your favourites at the end.

You will be fussed over anyway! If one of you says to your waiter you can get a cake and a chorus of Happy Anniversary to You at dinner. If you want something fancier there are various romantic packages available (at a cost!); check on the RC website. There is a flower stall available on the Royal Promenade which will sell you roses, etc. I've no idea how much, I'm not romantic ;-) One last comment on the photos, there are photographers out almost every night but particularly on formal nights and with different backgrounds on different floors outside the restaurant, wander round them all and select the particular backgrounds you like. Photos with the Captain appear to be popular for reasons I've never understood so you can watch out for them (on the Royal Promenade) if you are interested in that.

The hardest thing on a cruise ship is NOT getting your photograph taken & if you've got a special occasion go to the photo shop desk, they will arrange for a photographer to take whatever you want.

Friendliest Countries in the World

By Zara Kelly

The inspiration for this blog comes from some clients who are travelling to Sri Lanka on holiday this year. I visited the pearl in the Indian Ocean a few years ago, and was blown away by how friendly the country is happy to chat to strangers about spices through to cricket, a passion there!I think speaking to locals give you a real insight into the destination. Other than Sri Lanka, the friendliest place I have been to is Japan, where people will literally stop you in the street if you look ...

Fred Olsen have long been one of my favourite cruise lines, Braemar was the first ship I ever did a ” proper cruise”. When I say proper I mean not a mini cruise or ship visit as it was a 14 night Canary Islands sailing.In the last couple of years Braemar has been one of the lines ships that have started to do river cruising. Although in reality it is not really totally river cruising as the ships have been sailing from a UK port – Dover or Southampton.German Waterways sails ...
