Disney Cruise brochure

You may remember a couple of months ago that I said you'd be hearing a lot more about Disney cruises for the Summer 2013 cruise season. If you still haven't made up your minds about whether a Disney cruise is for you or not then you may find the cruise brochure below useful, (and remember Disney ships aren't just for kids these days, there's loads of adult only activities to!)

Happy cruising

Celebrity Cruises brochure 2013/2014

Celebrity cruises have to be one of my favourite cruise lines out there. The Celebrity Eclipse, (although it isn't my favourite ship of all time), is definitely in my top three.
For any one curious it would be:
NCL Epic;
Celebrity Eclipse;
Cunards QM2.
In fact you can click here to seem my review of the Eclipse from the last time I was onboard. However for those of you who haven't cruised with Celebrity but are thinking of it for next year you may find their 2013/2013 cruise brochure useful................

Gon' Cruisin'

Don't worry if you don't here from me for the next few days, I'm just off down to Southampton tomorrow for a mini weekend cruise break over to Bruges and back.
It's on the P&O Aurora, (click here to see my review of her from the last time I was onboard), and I should be back back next Monday or Tuesday.
In the meantime, if you need help with any of your cruise enquiries feel free to contact one of my colleagues on 0800 408 6200.

Happy cruising.

Star Clipper 2012/2013 cruise brochure

I've written about Star Clippers cruises quite a bit in the past so I won't cover old ground here. Suffice to say of all the luxury lines out there this is the one I'd most like to try, (definitely top of my bucket list). If any cruise can be described as romantic then this would be it.
The problem is when you start talking about clipper ships and tall ships to people it doesn't always mean a lot. With that thought in mind I've uploaded Star Clippers 2012/2013 cruise brochure for you here which can now be viewed online, after all a picture tells a thousand words. Let me know what you think of them.

Happy cruising!

MSC cruise brochure 2012/2013 - Online

You all know I'm a fan of MSC, cheap cruises, great staff and service, free kids places for anyone under 18, free carparking in the UK, so I thought it might help today if I showed you why. You can click here to see my review of the MSC Opera or below you will find their complete brochure for 2012/2013 which I've just uploaded for you all.

Happy cruising

Mediterranean cruising with Royal Caribbean

For awhile now I've been recommending people to cruise with MSC. They're a great cruise line, with amazing ships and they offer really great deals, especially for families, (free kids places for children under 18).
However one of the big complaints I hear back from people is that they're un-happy sailing with MSC in  the Mediterranean  as they felt the ships would be full of Italians. Instead they book with an English or American cruise line like P&O or Royal Caribbean as they feel there will be a much higher percentage of English speaking people onboard.

Online Carnival cruise brochure 13/14

Take note of this brochure as I'm going to be talking quite a bit about Carnival cruises in the next few months.
Carnival are going to have a much bigger presence in the Med next year, (2013), with a ship based in Dover for 8 cruises, (Carnival Breeze), and two ships in the Med.
Carnival are known for their glitzy, glamorous ships, sometimes described as Las Vegas at sea. Great for couples and families, (wait till I tell you about the kids clubs), they're definitely one to watch for next year!
(If you want to see a bigger version just click the square button in the bottom left corner of the brochure).

Apologies to NCL

I wrote a post yesterday, (see here), bemoaning the amount of money cruise lines charge babies under the age of two. The reason this topic occurred to me was because of a press release from NCL stating they would be scrapping free child places for children under the age of two and instead charging them the standard third/fourth guest rate.

How much does a baby cost?

How much does a baby cost?
No, before someone suggests it, I'm not looking to buy or sell one on the black market, I mean how much do they cost a cruise line once they're onboard in terms of food/entertainment/upkeep etc.

Travel urban legends

I wrote a post last week called "a funny story for you", (just click the title if you haven't read it yet). Judging from the amount of you who read it, (and the number of appreciative comments it got), you enjoyed hearing about funny stories from the travel industry. Thinking about that made me remember an old story that I heard when I first started in the travel trade. As I say, it's an old story so my apologies to anyone who's heard it before.
Because it's so old now I'm not even sure if it really happened or if it's just an urban legend that's been floating around the internet for awhile. Either way though it's quite funny so I thought I'd share it with you.
