No we have not signed up for meet & mingle, how do we do that? The other website you refer to is that just the RCI website. We are obviously not as experienced as we thought! Thanks .

No, the Other website cannot be mentioned here (competition!). If you go to royalcaribbean.co.uk > contact us > FAQs and you will find M&M under before you board. This is actually the Other site - you have to register but once you get in you will find a whole world of info under the varous links. Sorry to be cryptic but if it get detailed it gets blocked! The M&M is a way to register for your cruise, you chat with your fellow cruisers before you go, get to know each other, and share tips for shore excursions. Well worth it. And on board RCI throw you a private party where Captain and other senior staff attend for a private Q&A session, free food and drink too!

We travelled on Celebrity cruiseship Millenium in 2006 to the Rio Carnival. We were in Port for three days.Celebrity organised the Carnival transport which is safe and what an exciting night we had It ALWAYS rains!! It also clears up as quickly as it comes on but a very lightweight longish jacket with hood will suffice. It is a tight squeeze but when the rain appears the people don't half disappear and there is plenty of room then to enjoy and dance the night away. We were booked for 2010 with Radiance of the Seas to return to Rio Carnival in 2010 but unfortunately it has been cancelled so make the best of 2009 trip it will be outstanding.

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

So last week was a pretty busy week for me. Living up in Lossiemouth I had a training course in Glasgow on Wednesday and a training course in Edinburgh on Thursday but the highlight of my week has to have been my Ship visit onboard the Caribbean Princess. She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
