Celebrity earlier this week came out with some very exciting news that the Celebrity Edge will launch earlier than planned, although I understand the disappointment from those that have already booked thinking they had booked the maiden voyage’s although this seems to becoming more of a thing as both the Harmony and Symphony have done new sailings after announce a sailings, including the Maiden Voyage.

I cannot believe it, but the big day is finally here! Yes it’s the 25th December, although I have cheated a little bit, as much as I love my job I am writing this on the 19th December as I am about to go on annual leave until the new year so firstly I wanted to take the opportunity to wish all my passengers, be it old or new or even those of you that are reading this that have never booked with me a Very Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year and that 2018 is filled with lots of Fun and of course many Cruises fitted in.

Princess Cruises are set to fall upon the UK Market in 2019 with a record breaking year as they base, not one, not two but three ships in Southampton and that accounts to more than 1 million sailing nights from Southampton and Dover. They will base the Crown Princess and surprisingly enough the Sapphire Princess as we had been lead to believe 2018 would be the only year she’d sail from the UK – Well it isn’t and she will be back from the Far East for 2019 and they will also have the Pacific Princess too.

There is always lots going on in the world of cruising but at the moment everyone seems to be announcing ship refits, what with P&O Arcadia and Oceana in November and December. Fred Olsen have now jumped on the bandwagon and announced that in the next five months three of the four ships in the fleet will undergo major refits.

At the moment the Arcadia is high and dry in a dry dock in Hamburg under-going a multimillion pound refurbishment and she isn’t alone as the P&O Oceana will under-go hers later in the year.

This year certainly has been a very memorable one but maybe not for all the right reasons! The past couple have been absolutely crazy, from the Hurricanes in the Caribbean and Typhoons in Japan, Ryan Air cancelling hundreds of flights and Monarch going in to Administration leaving passengers stranded in resorts across Europe and 1000’s of disappointed holiday makers whom have had their trips cancelled.

Today is extremely exciting as Cunard have announced that they will be building a brand new ship to join the fleet in 2022. This new generation of ship has been announced on the 50th Anniversary of the launch of the Legendary QE2 – a long favourite to many Cunarders.

I have been so fortunate to have experienced over 30 different ships from across nearly every cruise line and one of the questions I get asked is ‘What is the best cruise line’ and in the past quite a few people have said, well Regent Seven Seas are the most expensive so they must be the best! In response to that, I don’t think that paying a lot more gets you more from the experience however a couple of years ago I got the chance to get on the Silver Cloud, I was a little set that I wouldn’t like it being that she is such a small ship but I was so wrong, she is simply stunning. Although a small ship she was absolutely breath-taking.

I know I have spoken quite a lot about Viking Ocean Cruises over the past couple of months, but they have been so successful since launching back in 2015. Currently they have and 3 ships with the Viking Sun due to launch in October 2017.
