Reviews….do you read them??

…I know I do….whether I’m booking a hotel, a day trip, a cruise or whether I’m buying something new for my kitchen, a new car….whatever it may be I always have a quick look at the reviews on line. They usually help with my decisions and give me a good idea of might suit or what we will like but I do try not to let them influence me too much because of course they are based on opinions of people you don’t know.

It’s all change for Thomson…

One of the things I love so much about the cruise/travel industry is that it is always changing , there is always something new and exciting on the horizon. After being away for a couple of weeks I have come back to Thomson cruises being re branded..and later this month they will become  Marella Cruises. I have to say I love the new name which means ‘shining sea’ in Celtic.

My Indoor Sky Diving Experience….

Have you ever tried Sky-diving, it’s always been on my list of things to do as I’m sure it is for many people but actually doing it is another thing. As the years have gone by I have become more and more scared of heights and it’s something I’m not sure I could do now! Last week I got the closest I think I may ever come to sky diving and that was to try Indoor sky diving.

It’s holiday time…..

and this time we’re flying off to Menorca. As you probably know from previous blogs Menorca is one of my favourite places having worked there as a holiday rep in my younger days. We went as a family last year for the first time and we had such an amazing holiday we’re going back with my parents and my sister and her family. It’s going to be the first time we have all been on holiday together with the children and we’re all really excited, Sofia will have her two cousins to play with so she is especially excited.

MSC’s Flexi dining….is it really what it seems?

MSC’s Flexi dining isn’t quite as “flexible” as it seems…

Usually if you book the flexible dining option for your cruise, for example Freedom with P&O, or My Time with Royal Caribbean or Anytime with Princess, then it means just that. You can arrive to the main dining room whenever you choose, of course between the hours they are open, usually from around 6pm until 9pm. It means you aren’t restricted to a set time to arrive for your evening meal and you can dine at different times each evening on your cruise.
