You might have thought that First Class had disappeared with the advent of cruising in today’s purpose-built cruise ships. But while there are different classes of cabin in today’s ships, from Inside to Penthouse Suites, broadly speaking passengers in all accommodation classes, from suites to inside cabins, share the same facilities with each other.

It’s time to look at the Cunard 2017 schedules, and in particular the Mediterranean fly cruises. (Please, curb your excitement…) Cunard have been doing these for a few years, although to be honest I haven’t paid much attention to them. One their smaller ships – Queen Victoria this year and again in 2017 – is […]

Both P&O and Cunard have announced the details of their world cruises for 2016. There’s some interesting stuff in there, especially from Cunard. First, P&O. They’ve announced world cruises by Arcadia and Aurora. Arcadia will do a 115-night voyage around the Pacific (plus the two transatlantic crossings to get), via South America, Australasia, south-east Asia, […]

It’s been another quiet week, which explains the absence of posts. But today we have some news. First up is today’s ‘Cunard 3 Queens’ arrival into Southampton. I gather that they gathered in Lisbon and sailed together from there to Southampton where they arrived this morning. It’s all related to QM2’s tenth birthday and there’s […]

2014 season begins

The 2014 summer cruising season is beginning to get into gear. For P&O, most ships have now started their summer programs. Aurora and Adonia are still on the final stages of their 2014 World Cruises but they’re on the homeward stretch of those – they will finish them before the end of the month – […]
