On my Amadeus River cruise we visited some lovely ports and Hoorn in The Netherlands was a particular favorite.
We dis embarked the ship and took a coach through to Volendam to the picturesque fishing village. There were inevitably quite a few tourist shops but the village was like a little Amsterdam with canals running through the town.

It has recently been announced by P&O that they are changing their on board booking policy.
Before the change, P&O used to collect £50 per person off clients on board and this was attached to their Peninsular numbers. Then when passengers decided which sailing they wanted the future cruise deposit was utilized which gave passengers extra on board credit on their chosen sailing. These future cruise deposits would last for up to a year so passengers can choose which sailing they wanted in comfort.

Nowadays most American cruise lines offer drinks packages within the fare or if you book a ‘guarantee’ cabin then you can add a drinks package on yourself once you are on the ship.

I used to work on board cruise lines quite a few years ago mind you. The company I worked for was Celebrity Cruises. The ship I was on at that time was the Celebrity Summit which is a Millennium class ship. My Itinerary in Alaska consisted of sailing from Vancouver and visiting the ports of Skagway, Icy Straight Point, Ketchikan, Juneau, Hubbard Glacier and Sitka. The ports visited depended on the itinerary.

I have recently returned off a two night mini cruise on Celebrity Eclipse. This was my first time I have been on a Celebrity ship since leaving their employment as a shop manager. I was intrigued to see what it was like on board.

If you read my previous post I will be joining the celebrity Eclipse on Friday for a two night mini cruise to Le Harve in Paris which I am very much looking forward to be going on. As well as the ship (Which you will have plenty of photo’s soon) there are friend son the same sailing who I have not seen for a while so a good catch up is needed.

In a couple of weeks time I will be visiting Celebrity Eclipse. It has been about 10 years since I worked on board Celebrity cruises and I have a feeling thing may have changed a little.
