A genuine disappointment

November 2019. Over the last decade, there has been something of a revival in interest and the number of people cruising, and sadly an equal number of operators providing substandard cruises. Having cruised 8 ...

Magic of Spain - 28th September 2019

We chose this cruise as we had never done Portugal and Spain - we teamed up with a 3 night stay in Alcudia. From the first evening we were given cause to be disappointed, arriving for dinner at 7.15 to be told the ...

First experience of Tui cruise. Only really one small but important niggle.

Our reason for booking this Tui cruise was that we booked late and needed a disabled cabin, Tui were the only cruise line that could accommodate this at such short notice. We are not “seasoned” cruisers, ...

Good holiday but Marella need to up their game in some areas

Room and facilities I had an outside cabin on deck 2 - 2026 There is much more storage everywhere - the wardrobe is a much better use of space on Marella as you have the big waste of space on most P&O ships. ...

I chose this cruise for several reasons. 1. Itinerary, following the Adriatic coast I felt it would be more likely to be a smooth sail and the sea would be calm. ( I am not a good sailor). 2. The stop ports ...
