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!

Do you yearn for “that something different?” When you are starting to plan for your next holiday, do you sometimes think “I wish there was just something else I can try?” Yes, there is something else, and I know from one of my clients how wonderful this can be.

Yes, some ports of call are back in business as if nothing has happened, yet they are a couple who are “getting there.” Alot of you have expressed concern about travelling to the Caribbean since the Irma and Maria hurricanes. Don’t forget that they are used to this, and whilst I do not say that lightly, what I mean is the area is prone to them. These people rely on tourism, so, we need to support by going back there.

River cruising is on the up and advertised an awful lot more now, from TV adverts to newspapers. It can be just as daunting as booking a ocean cruise with all the different prices and what is included. I love river cruising and really do think you have got to try it at least once. It might not suit you but there again this could be the change you have been looking for.

If you have ever flown to the States before you will know what the endless queues are like in immigration. I understand completely why but when you have sat in a aircraft for 7 plus hours and then have to stand in a queue for another 1 or more, it can be frustrating. Having recently just come back from Milan via Amsterdam, I do have to say that the Dutch have this queue system down to a T! Not like this though then you are entering the United States.

As you read this I will be in Lake Garda in Italy, one of the most picturesque regions. Tomorrow (Saturday) we are travelling from the lake to Venice where we have a couple of nights there. I’m not actually on holiday though I am working – honest!

On the 31st August 2018 a new ship will be launched. This ship is called the Scenic Eclipse and i think she sounds rather wonderful!

I am sure you will all know that my lovely friends are still not converting “yet” to a cruise holiday. That day will come but in the meantime, we have a weeks holiday staying at a hotel. As always we go to Tenerife as the weather is usually hot and we tend to meet up with other friends whilst there.

In April this year, NCL cruises announced that all cruises would be all inclusive and also include tips. A brilliant move from them. All clients will have the premium all inclusive drinks package and complimentary water in the cabin along with Lavazza speciality coffee served in the dining rooms. If you are lucky enough to stay in a suite or in any Haven accommodation you also qualify for 250 minutes of free wifi and on board credit. Not a bad move from them is it?

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.
