Cruising from Southampton
I have seen massive changes in the cruise industry over the past 17 years. We have seen ships transformed to become the ultimate playgrounds for adults and children alike. Cruise-lines that without double offer an incredible standard of service and cuisine, and personal space that offers luxurious fixtures and fittings in keeping with a 5***** hotel. This then in turn gives you the clients a fabulous choice to choose from. Products that suit your purse and expectation regarding service and food. Its never been a better time to enjoy that cruise confirmation when it drops into your inbox.

For some years now Celebrity Eclipse has been sailing from Southampton on various 7, 10 and 14 night cruises visiting the Fjords, Scandinavia, Iceland and the Mediterranean. Rather like Royal Caribbean’s Independence Of The Seas we have been used to seeing Eclipse at Dock Gate 8 so it will seem strange in 2018 when she is no longer berthed at Southampton.

Cruising from Dubai and sailing around the UAE is still one of the winter hot spots for the UK cruise market. With flight times around 8 hours and direct services from the main UK airports its an attractive option. Often the flight choice will be 2 day flights and a night option which brings you into the city early hours of departure day. UAE Visas are stamped on arrival in your passport without charge. With the early departure after breakfast of the previous passengers often the ship will allow early check in.

Some of us may dismiss the more niche cruise brands as their product is clearly small ship cruising experience which does not always appeal. Many may dismiss purely on price because it has to be said it will not necessarily be the lowest ever cruise fare. But for those of us who step over those resistance steps you may well be surprised. The quality and facility can only impress. The ability for the smaller cruise vessel to sail or tender right into to smaller ports away from the masses without doubt will offer a pleasing alternative to the tender queues from the larger ships. Add this to the personal and high standard of service coupled with the facilities you begin to understand just why some customers move over to this type of cruising and often once moved they do not return to the larger ships.
