Have you thought of OceanVillage Two? It is no dressing up, eat when you like etc. It is worth looking at their website. Which ever you choose have a great time after all life is what we make it eh. Look forward to hearing about your holiday. Sally.

I find Princess Cruises are a less formal version of P&O. We have travelled with both and find Princess give the same level of service, but are just a little bit more relaxed.

Definitely OV or OV2. I will never forget cruising on OV and seeing a party of Downs Syndrome youngsters, who were shepherded by a small team of heroes and heroines. The entire crew and entertainment team worked tirelessly to give them a special time. It culminated in the fantastic Robbie Williams tribute act (forgive me but your real name has slipped my memory) getting off the stage and dancing with a beautiful girl who clearly thought that he was the real thing (he's BETTER actually!!). The audience erupted with applause and I freely confess to shedding loads of tears it was so emotional. They brought joy to every day when we encountered them around the pool. It isn't just good food and dazzling service that makes a cruise memorable and this is one that will live with me for ever.

Thank you to everyone. I'm checking the ov & ov2 out now as we speak. This forum has been a great way of saving time trawling through web pages of cruises. I'm really looking forward to booking something now as my son keeps pointing out the cruise adverts on tv and mags! Thanks once again everyone x .

By Berni Corner

So how many of you have been watching the world cup this year?I have to say its not something I normally get involved in even though my partner and son are both football fans but i have to say i was very happy when Mexico beat Germany because I was in the middle of pricing up a cruise with Royal Caribbean over the phone with there American team and the whole centre erupted with cheers and whistles and it just brought home how much the world cup affects all of us and how we are all so patrioti...

WORLD CUP EVERY 4 YEARS ...

By Wayne Frieslander

Wayne Frieslander's blog

You might only get to enjoy a World Cup once every four years but you could enjoy a World Cruise every year, and that’s not as daft as it might sound. World cruises for upto 200 days may seem out of your league… but let me share with you some of the reasons they are not.When I started in the cruise business around 32 years ago, I often wondered who really did take full world cruises. My thought was that the cruise lines advertised these but the ship must have only ever been fi...
