  • Wilson, Widne - Commented on this review

    My husband, myself and daughter (30 ) are going on the Baltic Treasures cruise in July 2010. We have booked cabin number 445 inside on Pacific deck which according to the brochure is one of the larger cabins for 4 persons. Has anyone stayed in this cabin before or could let me know the layout and how big the shower room is, so we can visualize three in a cabin. Thank you. Fay from Widnes.

      There is a huge variety of food, none of it particularly German in my opinion. Breakfast was a choice of rolls, breads, continental cheese and hams and there was a cooked option of eggs (usually fried or scrambled or both), hash browns, saute potatoes, sausages, tomatoes etc. Every lunchtime there was a different variety of soup and several main course choices ranging from pasta dishes to curries, quiches and casseroles. There is a wide variety of salads, bread rolls, vegetables, pickles and fruit every day with the added option of a bar-b-q (usually steak or fish I believe) or pizza out on the pool deck. There was also a large selection of puddings. Then in the afternoon cakes and sandwiches were available, followed by the evening meal where again there was a different soup each day and a large choice of different dishes. We preferred the more informal buffet bar of Marco's as you could pick as much or as little as you wanted. The food was fantastic, your husband will love it!

Stranded on the Star!

By Gemma Coles

A few days ago I heard that the luxury liner NCL Star with more than 2000 people on board was reported as dead in the water off the Victorian Coast. The Norwegian Cruise Line’s 91,000 tonne vessel had to be towed into Port Phillip Bay after it had lost power about 70km from the city on the morning of 9th February. NCL have confirmed that the ship’s propulsion system stopped working en route to Tasmania from Melbourne and the ship was expected to miss several ports of call. A sp...

Hormones Rage on the High Seas!

Have you heard the latest? A Cruise Line has proudly announced its ‘New Women only cruise’ Whoever thought that this would be a good idea should have a serious talking to. What was she (or he..) thinking? Seriously!Imagine the outcry if a cruise line announced a Men Only cruise? Women, including myself would have plenty to say about it. So why is a Women Only cruise marketed as a good idea?I cant imagine it will take off, and what kind of women would it attract? Hen parties...

By Charlene Thackeray

Its that time of the year, Christmas has gone and its time to start planning for next year. We often host everyone at our house being that Chris is a chef its kind of expected. Well not in 2017, we have just booked a week on Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas. I cannot wait! I have been on Harmony and Anthem but always with work and only for 2 nights so its not the same experience as being on board with your family for the week.Then comes the decision do we stay in Miami or Fort Lauderdale? H...
