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.

For centuries these apples have been used to make a bubbly fermented cider and distilling that cid...

Me, my husband and my two children have just returned from a long weekend away in Southampton and on the Celebrity EclipseThe cruise was only two nights so I though to extend our little holiday by spending two nights in Southampton before the sailing and take them to a theme park. So we took them to Poulton Park which I highly recommend to families with young children. Great for 2 years old and up to the age of 6 yrs. Here we saw Peppa pig at Peppa pig’s world where all the themed attra...

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...
