Hi We have just come back from a island star cruise ; deluxe balcony 1014 on deck 10. It was great - plenty of space, and we were pleased it had a more than generous king size bed, fridge, bath and shower, sofa bed , more storage than you should need. By the way no smoking areas are mapped out in the daily 'chat' newspapers; The 'pub' was quite smokey for non smokers so I guess its ok there , restaurants are no smoking. As far as the food and wine deals - its gone up now; steakhouse is £35, oasis £25.90 , but still good value if you drink wine.

You can smoke in designated areas only. The ship is very nice and staff friendly and helpful. Food is good in restaurants, we are not fussed for night time in the pool area restaurant The oasis is worth a visit even though you pay a bit extra for this but service first class and delicious steaks and sweets. When we sailed the transatlantic in November they had a good deal Going £19.00 for a three course with a bottle of wine per couple.Hope to do the same when we sail again in July, this is our third time on the star and 4 times on the Escape.Have not stayed in a balcony suite but have seen in some and they are very nice. No smoking in cabins though. Enjoy your cruise.

Designated areas include one side of The Pub and one side of The Bounty Club if you mean indoor areas.I'm a non smoker and these venues can get quite smokey.There may be one or two other places but I didn't notice.

Travelling the Globe!

By Stacey Williams

I am so excited for tomorrow as I have been invited to London for the annual Globe Travel Awards. I have never been to an awards ceremony before so I was over the moon to receive an invite from the amazing MSC Cruises. My plan is to pack in the morning just before travelling as we have been so busy at Cruise HQ I have had no time to organize anything. My train is booked for 9am from Dumfries to Carlisle and then onto Euston. I will (hopefully) arrive at around 1pm. I then need to navigat...

Lago di Garda

By Dawn Gardener

Dawn Gardener's blog

 Back in october 2016, 5 colleagues and myself escorted a group from the MSC Splendida to Lake Garda and Venice.This was the first time I had been to Lake Garda or known locally as Lago di Garda. I was really looking forward to seeing this region of Italy and the famous lake that bring millions of visitors each year to this area of northern Italy.The lake is the largest in Italy and also has numerous small islands, from the main towns you can take the lake ferry which does a round trip s...
