My fiance used to do this run as an assistant cruise director. She says it is very hot at this time of year as it's right on the equator. You should pack lots of light clothing, but dont forget formal wear as well. Dont worry about not having enough clothes to last the entire cruise as there are washing facillities and services onboard.

Royal Caribbean and Celebrity do not have self service launderettes and their laundry service is quite expensive. Sometimes on longer trips (18 days probably would count) they do a special deal of fill the laundry bag in the cabin for a set amount. This is quite a good deal usually but don't count on getting it. Did this trip in 1997 and after another 17 cruises still count it as one of the best for the itinerary.

I have just returned from my first ever cruise on board a P&O ship. I spent three nights on the Ventura, Voyage number N730, 3 nights, Southampton to Brugge and back again. Myself and approximately 30 other agents were hosted by P&O, the trip was designed to give us an insight into the brand and what it has to offer.P&O is a brand that I would be selling every single day, so when the opportunity presented itself I jumped at the chance to get onboard. Its so much easier for me ...

Well its getting to that time of year when Christmas is on the forefront of everyone’s mind so I thought I would write about something loosely based on travel but also a bit personal to me instead of my regular cruise blog.You see I have had my pet greyhound Marko for going on 6 years now and he is a massive part of our little family. He is a truly remarkable dog and has done and achieved more than many humans could put their name to so I’m massively proud of him. As much as I lov...
