Well Jim, my suggestion would be that you do a cruise only and book your own flights and transfers separately so that will allow you to go to Santa Ponsa and join the Brilliance in Barcelona by using the ferry or staying somewhere on the Costa Brava a using Barcelona to fly to. I prefer a balcony but you choose what you like as it is very much a matter of choice, good Luck. ........Neil.
Hiya neil thanks for your great info .glad to hear much better and back to your great typing you do sorry to here about your illness you got on your recent cruise .hope you and ida are back to your normal selfes again as speacial you .thanks again.
We did Med taking in Venice last year. Cabin really doesn't make a difference unless you want to know what the weathers like outside then you need a window or balcany. It depends on what you want to spend. We have had inside, window and balcany cabins. Unless you are going to spend all your time inside you only use it to wash,dress and sleep. We went on Independance and Navigator of the sea.
Both very nice ships, good food and entertainment. Navigator much larger but still friendly. We usually dont stay but instead take 2 week cruise. They do great cruises out of Southampton and Dover and I think they are now doing some from Hull and other northern ports. Good Luck have a great time.
Hiya thanks also for your info .we have done cruising before on both island cruises ships like to try somthing else for change since star is been removed and escape is with thompson thanks again.
RCI doing cruises from Hull?? Doubt it very much,but if its true all my birthdays have come at once!! (I live 3 miles from Hull!) Carolynexx.
I do like RCI have been on Splendour of Seas 3 times and enjoyed every holiday but I do now think the ship is in need of a refit. I would go with Neil’s recommendation Brilliance of the Seas it’s supposed to be the best ship in the group and yes I am on it in 7 weeks.
