Just Back From…Loire Princesse

Within the space of a couple of hours, I watched a 40-foot elephant lumbering along the shore, stepped over a giant tape measure, spotted one house perched on top of a chimney and another partially submerged in the Loire River. My eyes weren’t deceiving me, as I hadn’t even had my first sip of the […]

Hot on the Forums: Are Cruise Ship Showers Turning to a Trickle?

Clingy curtains aside — and happily they are now becoming a thing of the past — nothing beats a nice shower after a long day’s sightseeing.
