The agency recommended by my cruise company is: CIBT, PO Box 61745, London SW1V 1UT. Visas for China are not cheap but to visit such a fascinating country it will be money well spent. Do remember that Hong Kong is now an integral part of the Peoples' Republic of China and some officials there are less than pleased when people forget this. I hope you have a great visit .

Can't help with China but if your British with a UK passport you don't need a Visa for Hong Kong...Wilba.

Look up your nearest chinese consulate...I know that you can go direct in Manchester...agencies seem to charge twice as much to acquire your visa for you.

For Hong Kong, U K passport-holders don't need a visa. For the rest of China, before you fork out £30 or more per visa, check with P & O - if you intend only to go ashore on their excursions, their excursion price may well include a "group" visa, saving you both money and form-filling. Hong Kong is amazing, and the £30 you save will pay for about 100 trips across the harbour on the Star Ferry and 75 journeys on the rickety old trams! Chris.

Boudicca gets a refit.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

My first experience of Boudicca was in December 2016 and must admit she was looking very tired and a wee bit old fashioned. This had no impact on our little mini cruise but for some passengers doing longer itineraries I must say may be a bit disappointed. Fred Olsen’s reputation is highly held within the cruise market however with so many glam glitzy new comers it is time to up your game. Prices are very good although certainly not cheap and having sailed with them the service, food an...

Oh its such a perfect day ..

By Betsy Davies

Betsy Davies's blog

It seems Royal Caribbean are not just building new ships and refurbishing existing ships but also investing in a $200 million overhaul of their private island Coco Cay. I think this is the best thing that the cruise lines have done in a while and for multi generational family holidays gets a massive thumbs up from me .The 125-acre beach hideaway will be renamed ‘Perfect Day at CocoCay ‘ It will be rolled out in phases, beginning September 2018 and the completion by November 20...
