Will It Be Bliss?

As you probably know, NCL’s new ship is the “Bliss.”  It will be their 16th ship and will be sailing in Alaska and the Caribbean, starting in June 2018.  NCL have said, and I quote -“Norwegian Bliss will no doubt be our most incredible ship to date.”  NCL have this week announced the features and amenities on board, –  so whats all the hype about it?

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.

Trip Of A Lifetime – With Added Romance!

We all love a bit of romance don’t we?  My 2 fab clients have just come back from the Rocky Mountaineer in Canada followed by a wonderful Alaskan cruise and guess what, they got engaged on the shores of Lake Louise!  How wonderful. They had such a fab holiday (apart from the romance bit!) and have allowed me to post their blog on the holiday of a lifetime, hope you enjoy!

Antarctica, The Last Frontier?

With all the news of new ships, new ports of call, new technology etc, I wonder if there is anywhere “new” that people have not visited yet? I guess that Antarctica must be one destination that not many people have visited for various reasons.  If you are one of those people who have always dreamed of this as a destination, my advice to you would be to do it now rather than later. It is not “untouched” by global warming unfortunately. From what I read, once upon a time a glacier would calve in about once a week, now it is about 5 to 7 times a day.

An Amazing River Cruise

Recently some lovely clients of mind experienced their first river cruise, after my recommendation. A recommendation really is putting your own neck on the line, and telling people, you have got to do this, because….. How do I or my fellow cruise consultants really know you will like it? Just because we loved it, does that mean you will?  I would say that to all my past clients, I have got to know you over the years and do know what you like in terms of quality, food, and cruise lines, hence my recommendation of a river cruise for Mr & Mrs L.

Are Single Travellers Getting A Raw Deal?

Of course they are! It is ridiculous that many single people are having to pay double the fare (in some cases) then a couple travelling together. The cruise lines have always promoted a cruise as a great holiday for single travellers, which it is, then they penalise them with huge single supplements, why? Because in alot of cases the single traveller is occupying a cabin for 2.
