Many many moons ago I lived in Dubai with my father and his second family. It was 1977 and you could only get around in a jeep; although there was a Golf Course it was on Desert and Dad would carry around this little bit of turf to “tee off” Everything was shared with the camels and the Bedouins..My father was there for the building of the World Trade Centre (he never left) If I said a lot had changed to this small understated Emirate then that is like saying, “an Atomic blast is somewhat Noisy” I have a love of this “over the top” hugely extravagant, very bling, Up Market Vegas and here are some of the reasons why.

MSC Meraviglia, MSC’s newest wonder is bursting with Swarovski crystals, LED atmospherics, ice cold waterfalls and in short will make you double take and jaws drop on every deck, she probably is’nt cool and she probably is a bit bling, but personally I cant wait to do a ship visit, I have visited several of her sisters and they offer a level of flamboyance not seen in many other cruise lines, love MSC or hate them you certainly cant ignore them….

One of my bugbears, is the extortionate price for Bottled Water sold in Hotels and more recently Cruise Ships. How can you possibly justify charging $23 for a Six Pack of water? or $6 for a single bottle?

So what do the good people of Northern England and Scotland do when wanting to cruise to places other than British Isles, they “usually” fly or drive south to Southampton, its long been a bit of an issue that Southampton is where most of the Main Cruise Lines are based and only very occasionally do they set sail from Liverpool, Scotland or Avonmouth. So I read with some interest the latest Cruise and Maritime news whereby Cardiff is to be added to their list of ports. As a Cruise company they are innovative and long sighted. This is likely to be the first of many who will realise (not before time) they are missing a huge chunk of the UK market as they prefer to fly to ports further afield instead of the 8 hour journey driving south for the Winter…(or Summer)

Other nations (like the Americans) to not suffer this “British problem”
