Mini cruises…love em’ or hate them?

I believe cruise lines have missed a trick! Mini cruises are generally the first time people decide too try a cruise holiday.  It is like a taster to see if this type of holiday is their thing.  The trouble is that if the client has a bad experience then that is a prospective client the cruise line has lost.

Drugs on Cruise ships?

PandO Fifty shades?

I have just come back of an excellent mini cruise on P&O Britannia.  This was an agent/friends and family preview cruise so us agents can take a look at the new ship, take photos and talk more about the new Britannia.  On the deck plans in the brochure in Lido deck there is a kiosk called ‘grab and go’.  Now this is a new thing for P&O and with the well known film 50 Shades of Grey out recently, I thought this could be the new meeting point for single travelers!  Actually this is a great place to grab snacks like pre packed onion bhaji, chicken dippers, sandwiches, ice creams.

Rule Britannia

I will be lucky enough to visit and sail on the brand new P&O ship Britannia in just a few weeks!  I am very excited to see this stunning ship which if rumors are correct will be named by a special person!  I board on the 11th of March and will spend two nights in a balcony cabin.  The ship is sailing but I don’t think we are docking anywhere so more than likely we will be bobbing about in the Solent or the English Channel. This will give me the opportunity to view every area on Britannia and take pictures so I can let clients know what it is like on board. My camera will be poised to get the first pictures of the ship.  P&O released some pictures a few days ago of the handover at the Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri’s Monfalcone yard and she looks beautiful.  Here are some of the hot off the press pictures…..
