Thats a tadge untrue about the return and everyone violently ill !! only a few were effected, and it wasnt as bad as you seem to make out , the bay is renowned for bad crossings but it dosent last long and like i said only a small percentage were suffering from the sea sickness this ship must be one of the best at dealing with rough seas .

I have travelled across the bay of biscay twice in oct and nov last year onboard boudicca and sea princess (both much smaller than id) it was fine. only time i noticed was at night lying in bed. i often get motion sickness but i was fine.

I o s was realy good crosssing the bay of biscay comming back i have crossed that sea dozens of time and its the best ship to cross that bay as it can get realy rough but she crosses it great just ploughs through, oceana was following us comming back and she tossed up and down.

Hiya we returned from the canaries on indy yesterday and had a really bad crossing going out force 10 gales so there were alot of people sick, the staff placed sick bags around the boat, 4 of us out of 6 were very sick however the other 2 were fine and the crossing coming back over the bay and into southampton was fine, so really it is hard to answer this question.

Dont miss your ship.

By Dawn Gardener

For some reason, there seems to be more and more stories of cruise guests missing their ship when in port. I am on several cruise pages via Facebook and have heard this a lot recently where guests comment on how the ship departed leaving guests on shore because they didn’t get back in time. Last year there was the famous you tube video going around of the couple that left their kids on the ship whilst they went on shore and then missed it as it departed from Nassua with her screami...

Were Turning Japanese!

By Collette Apak

Collette  Apak's blog

Over the last couple of years we have seen a huge rise in the number of people booking cruises that visit Japan. Maybe it’s the fact that many people have done the Mediterranean & Caribbean itineraries and are now wanting to look at somewhere different or whether a certain Joanna Lumley has prompted people’s interest after her TV series? Who knows? But in answer to this demand we are celebrating all things Japanese this week. I would certainly like to take a trip there and see...
