Entertainment let down……

Last week I was chatting to one of my customers who had just returned from a two week caribbean cruise with Celebrity. My customer last cruised with Celebrity around two years ago and came back full of positive feedback having really enjoyed the cruise. This time however he was left disappointed to say the least and the reason why???…..the entertainment on board the ship!

Almost time for my cruise on board…

Navigator of the Seas…..In just a few weeks I’ll be boarding Navigator of the Seas with my family for our cruise. It’s going to be the first time we have cruised with my little girl and we are all so excited, it’s going to be extra special as it’s our honeymoon cruise and yes we are taking Sofia with us…we couldn’t leave her behind! My little girl is five and I have been telling her all about the ship and what we’ll be able to do. Of course at five never having been on a cruise ship or even seeing one she doesn’t really know what it’s all about. I am so excited just at the prospect of how much she is going to love the ship.

Premium All Inclusive ..what’s it all about?

There has been lots of interest over the past week surrounding NCL cruises and their announcement that as from the 6th April they have become a Premium All Inclusive cruise line. NCL’s promotions recently have included all-inclusive drink packages, on board credit offers, Wifi packages and speciality dining packages so their cruise customers have already experienced the “All Inclusive feel” to their cruise. This is the next step and it has had a big impact, love it or hate it it’s happening.

Don’t forget your visa!!!

As part of my day to day role the “visa” questions come up a lot…do I need a visa? how do I get a visa? how much does it cost? All valid questions and it’s so important that you get the correct answers as the wrong visa or no visa can mean you can’t board your cruise ship!

P&O launch Winter 2018/2019…

It’s almost time for P&O to launch their brand new Winter 2018/2019 cruise programme. As a cruise agent it’s always an exciting time of year especially as we wait with anticipation to see what the launch will bring. The last brand new programme P&O introduced was their Fly Med programme and this was back in 2014…definitely time for something new and P&O have not disappointed. Brand new for 2019 P&O have confirmed that Oceana will be sailing from Dubai….it’s great to have some new itineraries and I’m sure that P&O passengers both old and new are going to love this.

I Just Got Married!!

This weekend has been the most amazing and magical time for me.. on Saturday got I got married!! It was absolutely perfect and we loved every minute of it….the only sad part was it had to come to an end! In the lead up to the wedding everyone said to me make sure you stand back during the day and take it all in as it goes very quickly…..they were exactly right. From the morning getting up very early to the very last dance the day flew by and I only wish it could have lasted forever!

Crown Princess to become home from home

I don’t know about you but when I go on a cruise one of my favourite things is the food, I love trying all the international dishes and eating food that I wouldn’t usually eat at home. I’m sure you will agree that dining on board your cruise should be one of the highlights, it certainly is for me. So when I read Princess cruises latest plans for their menu’s on board I have to say I wasn’t overly convinced from a personal perspective.

Upgrade on your cabin?? Why you have to think very carefully….

Have you ever been asked the question when you’ve booked your cruise….”would you like to accept a complementary upgrade on your cabin if one is offered?” Of course most people’s first reaction is yes ….why wouldn’t you…first of all it’s free and secondly surely an upgrade means you will get a better cabin! Well sometimes yes this is the case, but not always! It’s not as straight forward and clear cut as it sounds.
