  • Lewis, Clevedon - Commented on this review

    We were caught buying a diamond ring in Aruba from Colombian Diamonds which were recommended by RCL. We wrote to them after having the diamond quality done in the UK on our return and they were not even the quality we had bought, which was a 5 diamond ring. However we returned the following year on another cruise and went back to the shop and the Manageress apologised as they said the rings had been wrongly labelled. However they agreed to give us our money back but we did buy another ring which cost us more and we then had problems with this one were the gold part went mis shaped, so we contacted them and sent the ring back as this time the gold part went misshaped and decided to have our money back which they did credit our card for the full amount and postage. We usually cruise on RCL and on our previous cruise with them we mentioned this to the jeweller on the cruise and hs said a lot of the rings and being made on the gold part is hollow and this tends to go misshaped. We have bought a lot of jewellery in Turkey and to date this is the best place to buy and you usually do get the quality and the certificates do arrive in the mail on your return home.

    So you bought some diamonds in St Marten, then a UK diamond specialist told you that you paid a good price for them. So why are you upset with that ? Surely that's fine. But as you say you were told they were worth a lot more, can I assume you thought you were onto a nice little earner ?

      No I didn't think I was on to a nice little earner, but I have bought jewellery in the caribbean before and when we have them valued at home they are worth almost three times as much as obviously you don't pay any duty out there! What our jeweller meant was we didn't pay a bad price as they would have cost about the same here! Does that explain it to you Mr. Daley??????????

        Yes, that does explain it - you hoped to buy something for a 1/3 of it's real price. So, yes, you expected a nice little earner.

    I would like to comment on this review, it was totally wrong. Peter the owner of Gemsland did in fact send me the Certificate of Authentication but this was not received for a very long time and in the meantime I wrote the above which was wrong of me. I have since been to another jeweller in the UK who tells me that I have a good buy. I am sorry Peter for writing the above and hope that Gemsland do really well in the future.

    Arthur Daley is still on this site then - I am surprised you don\'t ban him because he knows absolutely nothing - just puts comments on here which are only abusive to other people.

Viking Ocean Cruises Would you?

By Tom Harding

Viking have really hit the Cruising Scene hard, they are immensely popular on the Rivers of the World with countless ships cruising the Waterways of Europe, Asia, Russia and the Far East. River Cruising is a very boutique and luxury experience with small ships and an all included feel. Viking in 2015 decided that they would next conquer the Oceans of the World and like Viking on the Rivers, they havent messed around with 6 ships due to be in the fleet by 2020 and with the Viking Star and the...

Christmas isnt meant to offend people

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

A good client of mine recently returned from a Celebrity Cruise over the Christmas and New Year period and was surprisingly disappointed with some aspects of it even though they have had highly positive experiences sailing with them previously.One of the aspects of the cruise that my client was disappointed about was the lack of Christmas celebrations on-board. He said that there was no Turkey roast lunch on Christmas day or crackers on the tables, but what most surprised him was the fact tha...

I have blogged about this before as there have been an unacceptable number of deaths in Swimming pools on-board cruise ships and yet only Disney Cruise lines employed actual Life guards to monitor their pools.Well it looks like things are changing. At the end of December Royal Caribbean started advertising for Lifeguards on their ships.The Post Stated that candidates will need to perform rescue of Guests in danger of drowning and be vigilant to potential accidents. Will be trained to administ...
