I have been snorkelling in Grand Cayman a few times and yes the water will be warm even in January and the snorkelling is very good. Whilst there you will probably be taken to snorkel over "The Wall" which is a weird experience as the sea bed suddenly drops from about 10/15' to total blackness down to I think it was one and a half miles deep, just a sheer straight drop. I always take my own fins, mask and snorkel and was able to find several great spots to go just on the beach in George Town. Just make sure that you take advice and go in pairs but I needn't tell you that need I?

Thats great, and yes we always take our own kit too. We swim together so we can point things out to each other. Hope its even better than Mars'alam, Red Sea, was in March this year. Thanks, Neil.

I have also snorkelled in Grand Cayman. You should also visit stingray city. Here you can swim with the rays.

It’s the start of another year, my 40th in the travel industry, the last 26 in cruising.You really can’t be in this business, travel as much as I have over the years, and not have mountains of memorable travel experiences. The question here is are you a “tick box” traveller, or do you really get something out of your travel experiences that make them as memorable to you, as mine are to me?Let me share some cruise experiences that others have told me are hard to beat.A ...

Christmas isnt meant to offend people

By Richard Smith

A good client of mine recently returned from a Celebrity Cruise over the Christmas and New Year period and was surprisingly disappointed with some aspects of it even though they have had highly positive experiences sailing with them previously.One of the aspects of the cruise that my client was disappointed about was the lack of Christmas celebrations on-board. He said that there was no Turkey roast lunch on Christmas day or crackers on the tables, but what most surprised him was the fact tha...
