Cruise Cancellation Policy – Read the fine print!

CRUISE LINES

Cruise Cancellation PolicyI have had reason to taken a closer look at the cruise cancellation policy as we are planning a family Christmas cruise.

At this stage we are just kicking ideas and itineraries around and if you can think that we will be travelling in a large group of 15 people there is definitely a lot of input coming from every direction.

Not only am I trying to take everyone’s wish list into consideration I have another reason to look further into the cruise cancellation policy is that I have a terminally ill family member wanting to come on the cruise.

France to Build Third Oasis Class Cruise Ship

CRUISE LINES  No comments

third Oasis Class Cruise shipRecently I traveled on Radiance of the Seas cruise ship and watching the TV while having my Nana nap (as you do on a cruise) and heard about third Oasis Class Cruise ship being built in France.  I actually watched the Oasis of the seas being built and I was mesmerized at how the ship was put together like a jig saw puzzle taking many hours of labor to piece it back together.

All the planning and discussions that went between the designers and the ship owners was unbelievable.  I even saw the statesmen cabins all being built complete with the wiring attached so they only needed to be connected.  All was transported where the skeleton of the ship was docked and literally pieced together.

Dance Classes for the Dateless

CRUISE TIPS  No comments

Dance ClassesHave ever thought about dance classes as a way of getting out and meeting people? Not only is it great exercise and gives you further social graces it is one of the best ways that singles can link up with each other. It really doesn't matter if you have 2 left feet there will be classes to take you through A-Z and you will gradually pick things up.

One of the best things I think is that if you start going to dance classes quiet a few classes have socials too so that you can practice your new moves.

Singles Only Cruises

SINGLES CRUISES  No comments

Singles Only CruisesHow exciting to read that the market that is increasing is the cruises for singles. I read also that we are selective of the cruises that we want to travel on, making sure that if we are not seniors that we don't travel on a seniors only cruise we want a singles cruise to match our own age group.

On the other hand if you are a senior you probably wouldn't want to be on a singles cruise for under 30 for instance. A lot of people might not know to ask their travel agent to suggest a cruise more suitable for their age group. Just a thought, read more information in the article.
