    Spirit of Discovery

    Was overnight at the naming ceremony and thought it a very nice ship. Good size well equipped cabins, all balcony, excellent food and good entertainment. Staff excellent, very attentive. Cruising on the ship in November.

    Is cruising suitable for all?

    Haven't experienced this with Azamara, Silversea, Cruise and Maritime, Saga or even Fred Olsen who definitely cater for the older generation. Having a severely disabled teenage granddaughter who is in a wheelchair I appreciate that for some, cruising is their only perceived way of holidaying overseas but I do wonder how these people would get on in a real emergency such as Concordia.

    Marella Dream.

    Nice review HLM. Sounds like good value for money. Sunwing is 49% owned by TUI ,in the same way as TUI Cruises, which owns Marella, is 50% owned by Royal Caribbean.

    Britannia Fight Night?

    Probably because the incidents are not serious enough to have police waiting at the next port to arrest the suspects.

    Britannia Fight Night?

    With 6 injured and 2 arrested when police boarded in Southampton he didn't have to look far for a story. Yes problems do happen on ships but how often are 6 allegedly injured and people arrested by police, it was obviously bad enough for the captain to report the incident and have police waiting for the ship at Southampton.

    Jane back on Friday.

    Have a fabulous time. I certainly did. Just remember that if moored at night near a public area to close the cabin curtains, many forget that the public can see in!!
