Sea Legs that is!?
If you are a seasoned cruiser the chances are you have but not everyone can handle the ship’s movement and although seasickness is hardly fatal, with symptoms such as nausea, stomach cramps and vomiting, it can certainly put a damper on your cruise fun

As much as we all love cruising we all have a few grumbles and gripes about certain aspects on board whereas some passengers just love to complain about everything from from broken fixtures and fittings, bad entertainment, long queues, waiting times for lifts, luke warm food, surly waiters, too many English / too many Americans/ too many tattoos, slow internet, rude fellow passengers and staff pushing too many packages on board – I have heard it all!!

This is not an announcement that you would expect on board your cruise but a passenger told me that this unusual request was made on her recent Azamara cruise
Unless a passenger has a specific medical requirement or condition that needs treatment that can be pre planned it is not probably something that you give a second thought to when you book your cruise, my daughter had an accident last week jumping off a climbing frame and needed stitches in hospital at A&E and this got me thinking about what medical facilities are available on board cruise ships in case of accidents or illness

Well it didn’t actually ruin my holiday but it definitely ruined the start of it!
With a 3 year old daughter and a 7am flight we decided to book an airport hotel, I was up at 4am, at the airport at 5am to then be told we had a 6 hour flight delay, knowing that we usually have a 6 hour window before we have a total child meltdown I could see that this was not going to be a good start to our week in Ibiza and was not going to end well!
