Yes it’s true! Her Majesty the Queen does not have a passport! Considering her total travel miles equate to 42 trips around the globe, I find this pretty bizarre! I’m pretty sure that there will be some far away hidden countries that don’t recognise her and how funny would it be if they actually refused her entry!

So hitting the headlines this week was morbidly obese 31 year old Amy Murray. The 27 stone mum of 1 has been warned if she doesn’t lose weight she will die before the age of 40. So what does this have to do with cruising you ask??? Well after been refused a gastric bypass from the NHS, Amy set up a GoFundMe page, asking the general public to help with £7000 towards the £10,000 she needs for the surgery – ONE MONTH BEFORE SHE GOES ON A LUXURY CRUISE!

Wow and Wow! Yes it is true – The lady nicknamed Mama Lee has lived on board the Crystal Serenity for over 7 years – longer than any of the 655 crew members! Having done almost one hundred destination cruises and 15 world cruises, Mama Lee barely goes ashore anymore as she has been to all of the ports of call at least once!

Well I think it’s about time that we had a bit of good news! And this certainly put a big smile on face. It’s been on the backburner for the past 3 years and even I thought that the plan wasn’t going to come off but since we were given the City of Culture 2017 title, it seems to be onwards and upwards for this forgotten city.

So it has recently been reported that the launch of the Titanic II has been pushed back to 2018! Much to the dismay of cruise passengers far and wide. Originally announced in 2013 to launch this year, plans ran aground leading to fears that the ship may never set sail however things are now looking back on track even if it is a little later than originally planned!

When you think of a cruising, the likeliness is that Thomson are not in the top 3 cruise lines that you immediately think of! Many people don’t even associate Thomson with being a proper cruise line – their words not mine! The reason behind this, I think is due to the fact that when you think of Thomson, straight away package holiday’s spring to mind instead of cruises but things are set to change!

As the title suggests – she is finally here – Almost a year after she went on sale to the public, Britannia finally made her appearance in Southampton on Friday (picture below) The question now on everyone’s lips is will she live up to the hype and expectations of what we have in mind? As yet we don’t know the answer but I’m sure that this time next week, we will have a fair few opinions!
