Is Smaller Better?

There are so many of the larger ships out there, and they do seem to be getting bigger and bigger don’t they!  My lovely client Mr S asked me recently to give him a list of all the smaller ships that he could choose, because he isn’t a fan of the bigger ones.  Point taken Mr S. I actually prefer smaller ships too.

The Pleasure Of Sailing From The Uk!

More and more of us are fed up of flying to our cruising destination. Facing airport queues, delays and all that jazz. Because of this, the increase in people wanting to sail from the UK has risen. Very much a stress free start to your holiday, no worries over how much luggage you can take, all you need to do is get to the port.

Going Loco Down In Acapulco

Happy new year to you all, hope you all had a fab time, although I have to say it is great to get back to normal!

In this festive period I guess you have been busy deciding on what you want for this year, but have you thought about next?  I look at cruises and destinations every single day and a recent Cruise & Maritime cruise for 2019 has caught my attention.  As part of the world cruising sector the Magellan ship will be sailing out of Acapulco in Mexico for the first time. What is so interesting on this one, apart from it is sailing from Acapulco is you can include a pre cruise extension with Mexico City, something very different. A 4 night trip which will then take you to Acapulco to join the ship.  Once on board you will have 32 nights of sailing to include Nicaragua, Panama Canal, Honduras, Belize, Cozumel (where you stay overnight in port) and then making your way through the Caribbean before arriving back into Tilbury on the 2nd May 2019.

Sharing Experiences – Here’s to 2018!

I do hope you all had a lovely Christmas and now eagerly looking forward to New Years Eve – and a few drinks maybe!

We have had a funny old year haven’t we? One thing for sure though is your holidays are still memorable, for me that is the icing on the cake!  I asked a couple of lovely clients what was the best holiday they had this year and why, thank you to them for taking the time to tell me – perhaps you will get some inspiration from these.

What Is A Free Upgrade?

I think we all secretly hope that we will one day, get an upgrade, one way or another. It would be even better if it was free, but lets face it anything that says “free” isn’t really is it?

Love Is In The Air!

I think I should call myself a bit of a matchmaker!  Speaking to a lovely client of mine earlier this week, as he has just come back from his very first cruise. He went all the way to Singapore and cruised from there to Perth, had a few days there then came home.  Not looking for “love” at all.  Sitting in the restaurant first night of the cruise, (and I quote) “a beautiful woman came to my table” and that was it! All through the cruise they stayed together and are now planning to meet up again in a few months on, you guessed it another cruise!

From River To Ocean In One Port?……….

There are plenty of cruise clients who like to do a “back to back” cruise. This is basically (for those of you who dont know) take one cruise, stay on the ship and do the second itinerary. It may be the same destinations or slightly different.  Of course when booking one of these, it is really important if you can keep the same cabin, as you dont want to be changing in the middle of your holiday!
