Disembarkation begins very early and every one is usually off the ship by around 8am. Any one still on board by this time is usually called over the tannoy to disembark. They like to have the ship cleared as soon as possible.

Most of the cruises we have done the last passengers were not off until around 9.30 with the first off around 7.30 you should be asked about flight details and they will give you a time and place where you should ready to leave the ship when the colour on your luggage labels is called. On most cruises they try to tie in the times off with the luggage to be collected and if you miss your time it is even more difficult to find your cases.

Your luggage tag and it's colour will denote the disembarkation time. It is done with due account of when you need to leave the ship, to catch an early flight or a later one to get to an hotel or whatever. The larger the ship generally the worse the situation but it is generally an orderly affair. So don't worry about this, they do it one every one or two weeks and have it down to a fine art. If you are dissatisfied with your time when you get your instructions just go to Guest Relations and ask to have them changed, preferably with a good reason. ..... Neil.

We are people that enjoy a cup of tea in the morning and do not like having to call (or pay) for room service to bring it. I am frequently being asked if there is a kettle in the cabin and it is only really the British C...

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

By Haydn Jones

I’ve just come back from a family Easter holiday to Spain, surprisingly not on a cruise this time. My children are of the age where we have to go away during school holidays. We decided on Benalmadena, Spain as we have been before , its not too far, and the boys love it there. The weather was absolutely glorious, we were so lucky this time of year to have 10 days of boiling sunshine. Benalmdena is a town on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its beaches and the modern Pue...
