Solo Travelers!! How much is a Single Supplement?

As you may well know, Cruising is very popular for solo travelers, from dedicated single meet ups on-board to meeting like minded singles at dinner, once on-board there is always something on offer for the solo customers.

Saga Sapphire….what a lovely ship!!

Pictures from around the Ship!!

Earlier this year I got to spend the day on-board Saga Sapphire and I have got to say I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a ship that was quite outdated and it wasn’t. I was really impressed with the decor and the feel of the ship. Whilst on-board we were treated to lunch and the food was incredible. Each course was cooked to perfection.

I don’t know about all of you but I love this time of year. From shopping for presents to seeing if Santa has been (I have a 2 year old sister so it is still magical). I don’t have children yet so I still get to act like a kid with my 2 youngest siblings and I love it.

I have moved to Sunnier Climates!!

Views from Guadalest!!

I am now back to work after packing up everything and moving over to Relleu, Alicante in Spain. I flew over on the 5th October and it has been a busy couple of weeks.

Lesley Garrett, the Lady Taverner’s and Seabourn!!

On Sunday 24th September myself and my colleague Dee were extremely lucky to attend a great gala night called ‘Lesley Garrett & Friends’. In which, celebrated it’s 30th Anniversay of the Lady Taverners and 30 years of music in the Westend. The night began in the Theatre Royal Haymarket. The show consisted of music from Lesley Garrett herself, Ruthie Henshall (known for her many roles in the westend), Jacqui Dankworth (an amazing jazz singer), G4 (the runners up in the first season of X Factor) and The London Gay Men’s Chorus.
