Christmas Cruise Are They Worth The Stress if You Are Single.

Going on a cruise is magical when you go on the right cruise with a good circle of friends OR going it on your own is all about picking the right time.

If you are a family and you need to travel in school holidays NOW is the time to go. Here you will meet other people with children.

Need to book early as there is a child age limit to each of the cruise lines so it’s very important to book and plan ahead. The advantage of this that the kids will be able to join in the kids club and chances are they will have such fun it will be hard to drag them away from their activities.

These cruises are very busy and noisy with the kids full of excitement about Christmas anyway so be sure to book cruises with a Sanctuary where

What happens if the shore excursion is sold out?

Cruise NewsCRUISE TIPSTravel Tips

We have all been there when we have booked the cruise that appealed to us the most and where we have thumbed and daydreamed and spent hours pouring over the different pages in the glossy magazine telling us about all of the on board activities and then start to plan what wonderful things we would like to do in the ports we visit.

The big countdown to the date we sail off into the sunset seems ages away when we think oh crap we have not booked the day tour at blank….we madly ring either the agent and then no good news there ring the cruise line to be told the same thing OMG…what now??

Cruise Cancellation Policy – Read the fine print!


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.
 Why to look closer at cruise cancellation policy
 At this stage I have not booked anything as looking at the cancellation policy of most of the cruise ships they are very inflexible and require over 100 + days notice to get some

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.
