MSC Preziosa!

I love my ship visits in Southampton and this time it was to see MSC’s Preziosa. This is the 3rd in the Fantasia class ship I’ve seen this year, first was Splendida, then Fantasia. All three are very similiar with only slight differences. These are big ships, 139.000 tons and hold 4,300 guests.

Britannia – At last!

I already feel like I know this ship so well as I’ve made so many bookings on her!  I was intrigued to see Britannia as I receive a lot of different feed back from my customers, some good some bad. This has been in my diary for months and I was feeling very excited on my journey down to Southampton yesterday. As usual I was accompanied by my colleague Edward who has already sailed on Britannia on a 2 night mini break.

A new favourite ship!

What a privilege to be invited on a tour and lunch on-board Oceania’s Marina . I was very excited about this as Oceania are a  premium luxury cruise line and I knew Marina would offer something very special.  Just 6 years old and one of two of Oceania’s largest ships but only 1250passengers she is small considering some other ships I’ve been on which hold over 4,000 passengers!
