Hello from Jamaica

So this weeks blog I am writing from Jamaica, I am here on holiday with my partner and daughter. We are staying here for 14 nights in the resort or Lucea and the hotel is the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort and I must say I am really impressed with the hotel. We have been to Jamaica before a few year back and stayed in the Iberostar Rose Hall in Montego Bay which we loved but this one is now my new favourite. It’s a big hotel with lots of facilities and a little water park to keep my daughter entertained during the day. But my favourite is the food, there is lots of choices for dinning including snack bars, two buffet restaurants and also six speciality dinning restaurants which you can go to when you without having to make reservations.

Is a Guarantee cabin worth the gamble??

Many cruise lines these days are offering cabins on a guarantee basis for a lower cost than the general rate. But what is a guarantee cabin you may ask??

Booking on a guarantee basis means you choose your grade of cabin but not the cabin number, the cabin will then be allocated by the cruise line at a later date, so all you guaranteed it the grade of cabin you have booked, this means your cabin could be anywhere on the ship!
