I read an article today saying that Norwegian cruise line will now no longer be allowing passengers to remove or change their daily service charges (that is if they haven’t already paid them upfront).

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.
I was intrigued as to the contents of the review and decided to have a good read. Well I can certainly say that the review is an interesting read, that’s for sure but is it going a little too far ?

MSC Cruises are a little different to some of the other main stream cruise brands mainly due to the fact that they are a European brand and are trying to cater for all European nationalities. This will mean that announcements are made in multiple languages and there will be quite a mixture of nationalities on board. 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.

In the last week I received two separate phone calls from clients who had booked Royal Caribbean cruises through myself on the new Anthem of the Seas and the Splendour of the Seas saying that they were considering cancelling their bookings due to some negative reviews that they had read on our site and elsewhere.

When P&O released it’s 2016 cruises a couple of months ago the Adonia wasn’t listed, P&O said that they would be doing something different with the Adonia which would be announced later on. They have finally made their announcement and they are going to be doing something called Fathom with the Adonia, so what’s that all about ?

I was chatting to a passenger of mine the other day who just returned from a cruise and one of the things he mentioned was he was disappointed that they didn’t have any bicycles on the ship for hire. I told him that this isn’t something that the cruise lines really do although there are some river cruise lines that keep bicycles on board for passenger use.

I was really impressed with Royal Caribbean’s new ship the Anthem of the Seas when I recently got chance to sail on her 2 night pre-inaugural voyage. One of the main features of Royal Caribbean’s new Quantum Class of ships is the fact that they are “smart ships”. Royal Caribbean have certainly made quite an effort to use modern technology to make the cruisers experience better. Features include super fast wifi, smart checking in on tablets, booking activities on the ship with an app, robotic bartenders, virtual balconies and more.
