Not been with Thomson but went in June 2004 Land of the Midnight Sun with Fred Olsen on the Black Watch. One of our best cruises. Chilly at night so you need a jacket and fleeces for the days ashore but when we came back our daughter said you dont get a suntan past the Arctic circle, but we did! Seas were very smooth, cant say what weather will be like for your cruise but you really should enjoy it. Scenery spectacular. Have a wonderful cruise.

Hi we went to the Fjords in August 07 it was pretty chilly, the lecturer on the ship said it was coming into their winter?? the snow was however starting to for on the mountain tops. Do remebr that you are usually sightseeing/walking so can keep warm. Hope this helps, it is a spectacular place don't forget your camera and lots of film (If not digital) Get a good spot to view entering the Fjords and prepare to be amazed at the sheer beauty.

Went on the trip to the North cape in June 2006 with Thompson on the Celebration it was brilliant! You will need to take fleeces as it can be chilly at night, we had had quite good weather on this trip. A good advantage with being on the celebration,they have good staff,good food,excellant first class shows, but most of all the captain is Norwegian calls himself the BBC his name is Larrsonn, he was originally trained as a pilot,so he knows the seas around Norway, and he can turn the ship around on a sixpence, you will be quite safe with him, he also has a great sense of humour. So hope this is of some use to you. Enjoy .

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

So last week was a pretty busy week for me. Living up in Lossiemouth I had a training course in Glasgow on Wednesday and a training course in Edinburgh on Thursday but the highlight of my week has to have been my Ship visit onboard the Caribbean Princess. She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
