Norwegian Cruise line now offering Free Ultimate Beverage package with Inside Cabins

I really like Norwegian Cruise line and the Freestyle type of cruise that they offer.  Although they don’t have a strict dress code or dining policy the quality of the ships, dining and entertainment is certainly as good as the competition in my opinion.

Great trip to ABTA Conference 2015 with Fred Olsen

Last month my colleague David and myself were lucky enough to be invited to attend the ABTA conference as we were kindly hosted by Fred Olsen cruise lines.

I was looking at our site earlier and noticed a cruise review had been listed as not only the most liked but also the most commented on from our site.

Also MSC to allow embarkation and dis-embarkation in many ports, I know that sometimes can bother people, it personally doesn’t bother me at all.
