They are not a big company so I doubt that there will be many people who have gone on a cruise with them let alone win a cruise. If you have won the cruise ask them to put it in writing and then also call them to confirm the details.

Do not know if prize is legitimate but ship is definitely legitimate and is building up a loyal following. Friends travelled with them 18 months ago to the Black Sea and thoroughly enjoyed the trip. They have also travelled on the Hebridean Princess 6 Star Plus so know their ships. Ship is not new but very comfortable with good but not cordon bleu food. It is not the ship for a laugh a minute type cruisers. No bingo or production shows. It is run like the old Swan Hellenic line for more serious minded cruisers who are destination orientated. Guest speakers are professors etc.

We didn't exactly win a cruise with them but we got a Nile cruise free with a cruise we did with them and it was definitely bona fide....we had a wonderful week on the Nile with all excursions, flights and transfers paid for...all we paid for was our insurance...so I would expect you will get the same. It was our first cruise and the ship was excellent, no complaints whatsoever and from that moment we were hooked!!!

We have had six cruises with them, a lovely friendly ship. Not too big, but has all the things you would expect. Super lectures, often themed, we have been with BBC History Magazine 3 times. Even had Sir Edmund Hillary as a lecturer! Plenty to do. Good food, Met people who have been 15 or more times. We are going again in the summer.

MSC offers a new school along ...

By Adrian Partridge

MSC Cruises, they just get better and better in my opinion. Last month I wrote about getting on a ship and helping the Caribbean by going there and spending some money. MSC have done a lot more than that with their latest offer of a school for the children.Along with the government of the British Virgin Islands MSC have dedicated a new, building that will serve as a school in Virgin Gorda. All 15 schools were destroyed in the British Virgin Islands during the recent hurricanes, the new pre-fa...

What really happens below deck...

By Collette Apak

Collette Apak's blog

When I go on a cruise I am always blown away by the amazing service I receive & how incredibly hard the staff work. They are working extremely long hours (up to 100 a week is not unheard of), but always have a smile on their faces and are turned out impeccably.Our lovely hard-working waiters on Splendour of the SeasSo what happens when they do get a little downtime? One thing is for sure there are lots of opportunities to party below the passenger decks in the crew bar. It’s always ...

My best friend has been great as she has visited the capital a few times and has sent me some hints and tips , my husband has been working...
