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)

As a race us Brits are not very good at tipping, if we give “too much” we feel like we have been ripped off (which is madness), if we give too little, we feel a bit mean and try and justify with all sorts of reasons and our other half gives us “the chat”, we can often spend hours considering amounts and to whom we feel is a deserving cause. Other nations (like the Americans) to not suffer this “British problem”

This is a “shout Out” to all you Walking Dead, Walkers stalkers, zombie lovers, I am sure you dont need reminding series 7 of the “Walking Dead” has just returned to our screens via Netflix. Whilst it is very horrific.. and special effects brilliant, nothing could prepare you for meeting them “face to face” So how about actually meeting them? seriously, all those characters you love, and those you love to hate are available for you to meet and greet…fear, suspense around every corner and memories that will forever last (in a really good way)

Winners and Losers
We have all seen “Marmite” Gate this week and that’s just everyday shopping.
So what are the financial pundits saying and what are the Cruise Companies forcasting?
As you would expect the cruise companies are saying “Book Now for goodness sake and do it soon” But I wanted to find out if the scaremongering is fact or fiction.

Bored Anyone ?
Cruising often has the preconception of “a bit boring” “only really popular with the elderly”, or even “expensive”…….Well let me dispel some of these myths right here right now. The ships these days can offer a myriad of exciting things for both adult and child alike, usually included in the cost.

My day in the office yesterday.
Well it started at 6:30 am, I traveled to Southampton to check out the MSC Splendida.
I am the new kid on the block, so this is my first blog, my first week in my new role and my first ship visit with Cruise.UK and therefore it seemed perfect to call my new blog “First step”
