Give Baby J Fresh Food!

Have you taken a baby under 1 year on a cruise before? If you did how did you feed them?  This may sound a silly question to ask but my lovely client Mrs C has been trying to get Celebrity to confirm if fresh baby food will be provided for her baby.

A Wonderful New Experience

My lovely clients Mr & Mrs D have just returned from their first river cruise. After doing many ocean cruises they were a little concerned river cruising would not be for them. Well!! Happy to report they loved it and would do it all over again. As you all know I really do love river cruising for the personal feel, the smaller ships (which i love), the chance to get up close to main attractions and actually “speak” to your fellow cruisers!  Have a read of what they thought.

Viking Are Doing It In Some Style!

Viking are synonymous in the cruising world with river cruising and very successful they are too, but there is a new kid in Viking’s town and that is ocean cruising which is going from strength to strength. Especially now that Jane McDonald has been on Viking Sky, I predict a real surge of interest.

Is This Too Risky For You?

A Nile cruise has to be one of the most fantastic experiences, especially if you love river cruising and the history of this beautiful country. Way back in 2010 58,000 of us Brits took an Egyptian river cruise, that amount had gone down to just 3,600 in 2016. Of course, this was mostly down to the terrorist attacks and the revolution which does not make great reading for anyone looking to visit.

An Awful Flight Delay!

After a lovely 2 weeks in Kefalonia we got to the airport at 1700 plenty of time for our return flight back to Newcastle at 2000.  If any of you have been to Kefalonia before you will know that the departure lounge (and airport) is very small (I am setting the scene here).

Fancy Seeing The Northern Lights?

I do. It has to be up there on your wish list. I know it is not guaranteed of course that you do see them but if you did a cruise to the area where they are known to be seen, surely that has to stand in your favour!

Is Cyprus The Next Big Destination?

We all love sailing around the Eastern Med, it has so much history and diversity. One of the largest islands in the Eastern Med is Cyprus, a lovely island yet there are not many cruises that sail from there, why? I think it would be a great destination to perhaps have a stay there before you cruise.
