QM2 Re-Mastered

As you may be aware Cunards largest ship (and my favorite) has recently undergone a refit returning to the fleet at the end of last week.  It has been a real revamp of the iconic ship with Fifteen new single cabins and an additional 30 Britannia Club cabins a larger kennel area for pets travelling the Atlantic.  Furnishings throughout the ship have been updated too including an overhaul of the restaurants in particular the self service restaurant Kings Court.  The Grills dining experience will also be elevated and Queen Mary 2’s two Grill restaurants will both be reconfigured, with more tables for two, increased space between the tables and additional loose tables for flexibility and an improved ambiance, Cunard stated.

Princess Academy at Sea Part 1

I have just returned from an excellent 3 nights On Board the Caribbean Princess.  I jumped at the chance when offered, simply because at the moment I feel that the brand is offering excellent value for money, great itineraries and all of my customers give great reviews when I speak to them.  I was ready to witness first hand what is making the difference with Princess Cruises.  I was On Board as part of Princess Cruises Academy training.  it was all about giving us agents a real flavour of the product with a mixture of talks, tours and importantly free time so we were able to experience the product first hand.  And I have to say it DID NOT disappoint!!
