Fancy a one night stand with a Norwegian ?

Well now that I have your attention, we have been very busy with this one night “cruise to nowhere” on 14th January 2014 out of Southampton with the new Norwegian Cruise lines Getaway. What a wonderful way to have a night out, look around the ship and see what there really is on offer. It won’t quite be the same as a nice long relaxing cruise, but still a bargain. There are outside ocean view cabins still on sale for £109.00 per person, I have even had a customer book this as a surprise to give his wife for Christmas, that beats slippers and yet another scarf/pair of gloves you will never wear.

School Holiday prices, rip off or not ?

We hear about it constantly in the media how the Travel Industry “rips” people off during the school holidays, they take advantage of the new rulings and fines are handed out to parents taking the children out of school for a week or two during the academic year.

Family Cruising

I have touched on this subject before about booking early to avoid disappointment, yet I am returning to the subject as I came across some interesting facts. I know the amount of cabins that will be converted is limited, I now know the age groups of the children allowed. This information came from P & O Cruises and applies to The Azura, it will vary on different ships and cruise lines. The total amount of children they will allow is 660

Christmas…….11 weeks and counting !!

No one likes to be reminded how close we are getting to the dreaded time of the year, and I say dreaded because I have done it all, staying up until well after midnight wrapping presents, putting the mince pies/sherry/reindeer fodder out with the appropriate bites missing. Then comes the day itself when we prepare mounds of food which takes hours, only to be demolished in 15 minutes followed by the Queens Speech, more Baileys than completely necessary and people nodding off on various sofa’s.

When to book ? Always a good question……….

How many times as Consultants we get asked, when is the best time to book ? The answer………..quite honestly we don’t always know.

Are you particular about your cabin? is the Itinerary something special that maybe only happens once or twice a year? there are so many variables it is hard for us to make that choice. If you have set holidays and are travelling with children, please book early.

Back from the ALgarve…..loving Jet2.com

Busy week, got back from holiday on Saturday morning last week and straight on to the phones Saturday Night !!

This was the first “low cost” airline I have flown with in a long time, many charters, and boy what a difference, if you ever get the opportunity to fly with them, go, the leg room was AMAZING, I thought on the way out was a one off, maybe it was just good luck, but no the return was fabulous too. I went to Egypt earlier this year and could not even fully open my OK holiday magazine, this time, no problem. The leg room was a good 33/34″ seat pitch, add to that the generous luggage allowance of 22kgs and we were two very happy campers.
