Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by John (30 Jan 09 14:46)

I have just checked this agent on Travel Agent Finder and they have scored two stars out of five. If choosing to book a cruise most of us would recommend that you deal with a Cruise Agent not a Jack of all Trades. I know that this is not much consolation and hindsight is always easy so I hope that you solve all the problems and that you have a great cruise. Again without wishing to sound tactless it does prove the value of this and other similar sites and doing as much research prior to a cruise as possible, anyway Good luck. .... Neil.

Hi Neil, I have been asked before but you don't see Cruise.co or as it was known Victoria Travel on this finder system we have been using them this past 10 years and a few have asked me but never found their rating to pass it on, recommend them only on past services ? ..... Bill.

Dear John we are having the same problem as you but ours is still ongoing we are still waiting for transfer vouchers and only one day to go and no they didn't give us any advice on our visas luckily we have got them. Would love to catch up with you on the cruise if this is the one you are on, If you email me i will give you my details as to how we can catch up.

Happy New Year from Aurora

By Anne Eaves

We are nearly half way through January and Christmas and New Year seem like a distant memory already. I cant believe that it is 10 days already since I got back from my New Year cruise on Aurora which also seems like an age ago. When I woke up on 27th December and seen all the snow I did wonder if we would get to Southampton at all, thank goodness we had booked and hotel in Southampton for 28th December so we would be there the day before.After a lovely night out in Southampton and a night at...

Tipping on board cruise ships

By Renee Gagen

Renee Gagen's blog

Tipping on board cruise ships has always been a problem, many customer’s like to do this, many don’t, I’m a person that doesn’t like to be told how much I should give and who to give it too and is it getting out of control the amount that cruise lines are putting these up by?Many people think it’s just on cruise ship but many holiday destinations you have to tip places so what is the recommended amount that you should tip? I know while I was on Holiday in Goa my ...
