I along with a lot of people like to enjoy myself when on holiday and fab news (I think ) for all of their 2018 cruises with Riviera they will be offering drinks packages and cleverly planned too. With most River Cruise Lines drinks are included with Lunch & Dinner as standard, if you are a drinker or not and include Wine, Beer & Soft Drinks. However often my clients will tell me they dont drink or one of the party drinks and the other one doesn’t so this is false economy.

Interesting news from Royal Caribbean – they are going to be introducing Lifeguards to their fleet of ships and starting with Oasis of the Seas. With their management saying ‘We are a family brand, pool-based fun is an important aspect of the cruise vacation for all guests, and we are doing everything we can to ensure they have the safest vacation possible’. With each parent being present in the pool with their child. Ok management when was the last time you went on one of your ships and saw every child with a parent with them in the pool?

Who says River Cruising should be more sexy? – The experts apparently.
I’m not sure about that one but according to those in the know, it needs to become more sexy if it is to grow to its full potential. 2017 will be the year it is set to” blast off” but the River Companies need to develop unique products, for example in the family or city break markets. River Cruising is 10 years behind the Ocean Sector. Yes and I think that’s good we can see what they have done and learn from their mistakes !.

Bravo to American Airlines- for being brave in making a statement and I for one relish it, they are going to be charging for overhead baggage on flights, this has got to be the best news i’ve heard in a long time.
