The ones to watch……………

Over the past few years i would say cruising as a whole has really moved on in the holiday market, forcing all cruise lines to really pull out the stops. We have had the likes of Royal Caribbean and NCL launching monster vessels, P&O changing their tradional itineraries to keep up with Demand in popular areas such as Malta and Dubia. Also MSC and Princess bring our technically advanced ships, but recently a little unknown cruise line are also making waves and for me are very much the ones to watch the coming years, they are CRUISE AND MARITIME!!!!!

Majestic …. She was!

On the 31st March 2018 along with a few of my cruise dot buddies we set off to Italy to meet the newest member of the Princess Fleet the Majestic! and my overall thoughts are just WOWWWWW!!!!!  Arriving in Trieste the skies were blue and sun was shinning, for this very special day. The locals had turned out in their thousands to the quarryside for sail-away  to see Captain Dino Sagani (who grew up in Trieste) take  the helm of his new ship.

It tough to be a smoker!

In past eras smoking was quite classy, cool and  even sexy and sometimes you may have stood out not being a smoker , however gone are the days where smoking was socially acceptable, and in a world of anti smoking gradually the cruise lines have all come to the same conclusion.
