I’m conscious that this cruise blog may have become rather P&O-centric in the last few years and that wasn’t what I originally intended, although it does reflect the kind of cruising we’ve been doing in that time. But UK cruising is about much more than P&O, and one of the major players in recent years […]

I read a number of other cruise-related blogs and websites, and one that I keep checking is Jane Chadwick’s ‘Go Cruise with Jane’ site. It’s not solely a blog – not even primarily, in fact, as Jane and her daughter work in the industry as online cruise TAs – but she does do reviews of […]

I’ve just seen the all-inclusive offer for Anthem of the Seas for 2015. At first I was a bit nonplussed by the ad – all I could see was the picture of the SkyHook-thingy and the words ‘This changes everything’, with which I couldn’t bring myself to agree. Then I read the advert more closely […]

I had no idea, honestly – that’s how little attention I’d been paying to the QotS hoopla. But other people had been keeping their eyes on it, including Andrew Sassoli-Walker, and he’s just sent me the images you can see below. Thanks to Andrew; and of course the images are his copyright and should only […]

Once again it has been a long time since I last posted. This always seems to be a quiet time of the year, and it’s hard to think of cruises when the clocks have just changed and the nights are drawing in. But there have been developments, of course. I suppose the most important of […]

Royal Caribbean’s big ship Oasis of the Seas will be arriving in Southampton tomorrow (15/10/2014) prior to departing on a transatlantic voyage to Florida. She has just finished a short program of short cruises out of Barcelona, intended to whet Europe’s appetite for cruising on these meg-ships. There are currently two of them, Oasis and […]

I’ve done a couple of posts already about Quantum of the Seas (hereinafter ‘QotS’) – here’s a link to them. But now there’s a lot of coverage of the various automation facilities that will be on her (and presumably her sister, Anthem of the Seas). These seem to consist of:- on-line checkin, which (if you’ve […]

There’s a story breaking about a possibly-tragic event on Independence of the Seas yesterday. A 6 year old child was found on the bottom of one of Indy’s pools. The child’s heart was found to have stopped, but on-board doctors managed to restart it, and the child was later airlifted to a hospital in Brest. […]

No-one will be surprised to learn that internet access while I’m on a cruise is something that’s important to me. For one thing, I like to post blog entries during each cruise, and these do seem to be well received: while my normal page hit-rate is around 300 to 350 a day, the figure for […]
