We were on the Serena earlier this year from the Med into the Atlantic down to the Canaries and back again and to be quite honest I doubt if you will feel seasick at all!!! It is a huge ship and hardly moves in the water. However if you think you will be, it would be much cheaper to take tablets with you (we always carry Stugeron tablets available from Boots but have never had to take them.) The injections are very expensive apparently around 50 pounds a time. Tips if you do feel queazy are to keep in the middle of the ship and go as low as you can to minimize the movement. I'm sure you will be fine.

I've been researching Costa as I'm considering a winter cruise on the Serena. She like most ships has a medical centre onboard. The injection for sea sickness is usually always available. I had to get one on the Lirica last month, not because I was sea sick but because I had a chest infection and couldn't stop being sick. Had be vomitting for over 20 hours and stopped within 15 minutes of having the shot. I'd only have it as a last resort after trying the usual remedies such as tablets or the wrist bands. However if you are feeling awful, then it is certainly worth a try. Not sure how much they will charge you. MSC kindly didn't charge me at all. (Think they must have felt sorry for me!

Sex, drugs and ports of call. ...

By Dean Michaelides

Dean Michaelides's blog

I recently read an article from a former cruise ship employee. He was explaining that having sex, taking drugs and making friends in the onboard sex dungeon was a regular occurrence on board one Caribbean cruise liner. Despite having sex with the clients being a sackable offence the staff would have no qualms getting involved. He also mentioned that the riskier the better so as well as having sex in the staff decks they would like to push the boundaries on the unpopulated decks.It wasn’...

Piraeus Athens Gateway Or ...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Continuing my look at European ports this week I thought I`d choose Piraeus, the port for the Greek capital Athens.Athens is probably most famous for the Acropolis, topped by the Parthenon Temple, and the National Museum. It is a bustling, busy city with lots to do and a place I have visited several times. It has lots of really good hotels, restaurants and bars as well as its history. Many cruise ships now visit Athens using Piraeus as the anchor port.The port sits about 7 miles from the city...
