      We used the ship's tour for convenience. i am not sure that you can simply get a tour from the quayside at Ashdod .Jerusalem is at least 1h away by coach ( and presumably taxi) and we were concerned re possible delays and missing the ship in case of any security delays. Pre booking may be possible. There is also usually a ship's tour which includes Bethlehem . This is in Palestinian control and drivers have to switch as Israelis ( jewish) are not allowed into Bethlehem. There was at least one American couple who pre booked a 2 day tour so left the ship at Haifa ( we went to Acre on a ships tour) and they went via Galilee , stayed ovenight on shore , then onto Jerusalem and rejoined the dhip at Ashdod. . Sorry , I cannot advise a specific company - try the internet Hope this helps - enjoy your trip! ian Cox.

Princess to take over Europe in 2019!

By Tom Harding

Princess Cruises are set to fall upon the UK Market in 2019 with a record breaking year as they base, not one, not two but three ships in Southampton and that accounts to more than 1 million sailing nights from Southampton and Dover. They will base the Crown Princess and surprisingly enough the Sapphire Princess as we had been lead to believe 2018 would be the only year shed sail from the UK Well it isnt and she will be back from the Far East for 2019 and they will also have the Pacific Prin...

Wonderful Shanghai pt2

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

If you haven’t already, take a look at my last post ‘Wonderful Shanghai Pt 2’ here I have to admit the title here doesn’t really tell the full story as we actually spent the day in the equally wonderful city of Suzhou which is around 62 miles from Shanghai. Read onAfter a good nights sleep at our hotel in Shanghai we arose early for our 9am pick up. As Breakfast was included we headed down to the Restaurant. Breakfast was fantastic with a great selection of Western ...

Premium All inclusive without ...

By Chris Halford

Chris Halford's blog

I wrote a blog back in June when NCL decided to change their offering and moved all of their sailings to Premium All Inclusive. They said this is what customers wanted and they were responding to the market. Furthermore, gratuities were also thrown in which meant you could go away and not worry about spending money (except for excursions and other optional extras). This also applied to guarantee cabins. These are usually offered by the cruise lines at a reduced cost but without the ability to...
