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!!!!!

I would probably struggle to find someone who missed the news last bank holiday weekend when British Airways we forced to cancelled hundreds of flights due to a power outage which crashed their IT systems and left thousands of passengers stranded, stressed, unable to go on their planned holidays and some even losing their luggage. This computer melt down had a major knock on through out the industry which started on Saturday and was still effecting passengers on Monday of this week.

‘Most have heard of the M1 , that long South-North motorway that connects London to Leeds, but did you know that on a cruise ship they have ther very own “M1”. This is the central busy hub under the passenger decks which cruise members use to make their way round the ship, and on our recent trip on the brand New Majestic Princess we were welcomed to the M1 for an exclusive cruise.co.uk tour.

During my recent trip on the brand new Majestic Princess we managed to fit in a lazy day in Kotor. This was my first time in this beautiful destination and definitely a port to tell you all about.

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.

For all you MSC fans, 2018 is set to be a great year not only are they launching two new amazing ships but also Magnifica will be based in Southampton for the WHOLE season, and MSC cannot wait to welcome Brits on board.

Once again gratuites are top of the list for cruise news and discussions this week with P&O being the latest cruise line to not only increase their daily gratuity amount but also totally confusing their customer by renaming it.

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.

Recently there has been a steady rise in cruise lines offering free drinks package as part of their monthly campaigns. Whether its free or not customers are always asking is it worth buying a drinks package?? What is included in a drinks package??

All my friends and family will tell you I am a professional packer, and with a family of 5 i need to be organised. I like to make list after list to make sure I do not miss or forget anything. I have found recently that seasonal cruisers common worries when making the leap from departing from UK to taking a fly cruise package is luggage.
