    I have read the review by Solent Richard and would correct one point other than which it is a good article. The distance for the car service as received from Saga "Regarding the Saga VIP Travel Service, for ocean cruises the mileage limit is 250 miles and for river cruises and long haul it is unlimited" I sailed on the ship in November and was very impressed. It truly is, 'all inclusive' even the excellent speciality restaurants. My cabin was the lowest grade but very well appointed.his was my cabin which was the

    I am sure DavidH once their new ship arrives they will be in a position to extend their itineraries to more exotic locations. Enjoy your coming trips and keep safe. OWT

    Now there's another subject OWT!!!!!. I sincerely hope I'm correct that the quieter periods are seasonal, however the likes of Facebook etc have definitely impacted on forums such as these and new members are few and far between. That said I still enjoy posting on here and will continue to do so when interesting threads come up, hopefully others will too. Unfortunately there's only so much we can discuss about cruising and the "off topic" room recently has created the more interesting threads such as this one. Only time will tell if this forum continues we'll just have to wait and see. HLM.

    I sincerely hope you are right HLM. Unfortunately the forum went quiet long before the run up to Christmas unless that starts in September. I agree the 'Off Topic Room' has a significant number of posts, but could I respectfully say it is nowhere near the number of posts for 'Cruising' 20,088, 'Cruise Line' 16,247. Add in blogs, destinations and types of cruise which adds a further 7,000 plus and you are at over 43,000. At least this debate has brought a few people back to posting

    Have cruised with MSC several times and never been disappointed. They offer a cruise experience away from the stuffy attitude of some cruise lines and are like a breath of fresh to an industry that in the past has been steeped in tradition of formality. You are on holiday, enjoy, I am sure you will have a great time with a forward looking cruise line that has developed a huge following and has some of the most innovative ships in the industry.

    Hi DavidH So, so true and a great pity, there are some really interesting and knowledgeable people on the forum, however many forums are suffering, I am a moderator on one which has noticed a drop in numbers over the years, however we do arrange ship visits during the spring through the summer months, but we are a travel forum not dedicated cruise. On another dedicated cruise forum the admin have helped arrange forum cruises, arranged ship visits, invites to launches and naming ceremonies etc. I would pose the question, what has Bolsover ever done to help enhance the forum or reward membership!!! Facebook pages with bloggers seem to have taken off in a way I don't think anyone predicted. A couple of years ago I set one up because my children were fed up with reading of my travels on my private FB page.This is now followed not only by cruisers but also cruise lines. Another advantage is you see a persons real identity so it wards off the keyboard warriors who hide behind a screen name and adopt multiple identities. Most cruise lines have them run by their followers and the numbers are amazing. From a recent Princess cruise I shared a short video of a galley tour and pictures of my cabin, they had a reach of 18.3k and 13.7k respectively, a cabin picture from AmaMagna a few weeks back 11.6k. Enjoyed your TUI review as did others who obviously look in but don't post. It's disheartening when you go to the bother of writing something and it generates little or no discussion. Having said all of that I will continue to look in until such time as Bolsover close it and will join in any interesting threads.

    We are currently on roundtrip Transatlantic on QM2 and the cruise is excellent in every way and seen no reduction service or quality of food, which has been excellent. I suppose if you compare from years ago standard shave droped but so has the price you cannot have it both ways.

    Sorry to hear that Davybe, I wish you every luck for the future and long may you be able to cruise. Friend of ours has just returned from a cruise with Cunard and was not impressed. Last week I had 7 days aboard Hebridean Princess and that is a ship you don't hear much about, but without, a doubt it is the best food and service I have ever had on a ship anywhere. Sunday it is off to AMA Waterways on their new ship Magna. Should be interesting as it has some new concepts to it apart from being nearly double the width of other river craft. Has anyone been on it already as I would be interested to hear their views.
