Do your homework, read the brochure, get on the internet and study the ports of call, look at the ship's excursions on their official web site and then decide what you would like to see (maybe by mixing two or even three of their trips) and what is probably a waste of time. The more time you spend on getting information the easier your choices and the more enjoyable the cruise .....That's our belief...Neil and Ida Dow.

Thanks for your comment but perhaps you misunderstood my question, as I am looking for tips whilst on a cruise.

Sorry we did misunderstand you question and we're still not sure what you are looking for. We could be facetious and say the crew get the tips but that would be flippant. So probably the best tip is to mix and make friends and share your cruise with some of the nicest people you could wish to meet...and get tips as you go along from them because that will be pertinent to you ships and the crew and your ports of call. One word of warning....cruising is contagious regards Ida and Neil Down .

We have just returned from our first cruise too, we were on the Thomson destiny, everything was good. Is there anything in particular you need to know? Which ship and destination are you taking.

We took our first cruise on Thomson Celebration to Norway in 2006. We looked on the internet at first time cruises the information there was correct in what happened when we first boarded. The rest of the time we just sat back enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and then booked our next cruise when we arrived home. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Five Of My Favourites !

By Camilla Edwards

Well its very nearly Christmas and all I wish for now is some snow! Walking the dog this morning everywhere was frosty and white, made me really feel in the festive spirit. One of the best things personally at this time of the year is the food and celebrations associated with Christmas and New Year, so this week I have decided to blog about 5 of my favourite places to eat. Some on cruise ships, some not.Fed Olsen Balmoral. I always enjoy the food on Fred`s ships and Balmoral last year was no...

The group was on second sitting which was 8.30 in the main dining room The Romeo and Juliet. The choice in there was great something for everyone and the staff were very attentive and gave us their recommendations at every meal.Also in here you can have A la Carte Breakfast from 7.30am to 9.30am an...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
