Much has been asked & written about MSC over the last few days so I'm assuming you've read all the comments & reviews. Six Euros a day is charged to your account which can be removed by filling in a form from the desk, no hassle. Alcohol purchased in port will be removed & stored till last day of cruise. Alcohol taken on board at embarkation is no different to any other cruise line, if it's not on show, it's out of sight, out of mind.

Hi there we haven't cruised on Armonia yet (remedying that in a months time!) but went Genoa/Durban on Melody last October/November and took alchohol in hand luggage but suitably disguised! and had no problem whatsoever also had our tips removed from our account without any problems at all and simply tipped the people we thought desreved them We don't like the system of "the higher your position in the crew the more tips you get" at all as we think the people who look after you ie cabin steward and waiters deserve tips more than the entertainments staff or other similar crew members.

I love working in the travel industry and selling to me what is the best form of holidays Cruises. As part of my job I have been lucky enough to see some amazing ships and do several short cruises and really get a feel for what cruising is all about but always as part of work.I have looked several times at doing a cruise for my own holiday but as we are a family of 5 it has generally been a bit out of reach for us financially.

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

P&O and Cunard cruises have for a good while now offered extra on-board credit to serving or ex forces guests. Previously this just had to be added on request at time of booking (not on a Saver fare) and guests may on-board be asked for paperwork to prove their eligibility on-board or lose it (although my clients said that they never got asked ).No both P&O and Cunard have moved the goal posts and require people who book after the 1st March 2018 to be registered for a Defence Discoun...
