    Fourth Cruise.

    Yes definitely layers and a waterproof jacket. plus some good walking boots!
  5. I'd defiantly upgrade to the classic drinks package as that is really good. With regards to the premium one it just depends if you want to drink in the martini bar and have a few extras such as champagne. You can always look at the list on board and decide on there.

    Worrying Words From An Airline Pilot

    I was flying to Sri Lanka to do some volunteer work after the tsunami. My Mum has always been very supportive of my travels but this time she had expressed her concerns and made me research on the Tamil Tigers (For those who aren't aware who these are, these are a terrorist group in northern Sri Lanka. But me being me I still went ahead and booked flights there! We were almost there and the captain said 'we are making a diversion to another airport as the Tamil Tigers have taken over the airport' My mum's words were ringing in my head at this point! Myself and my friend looked at each other and we both said there's only one airport in Sri Lanka... looked o the screen and the plane was flying to India. So we had a VERY long wait on an Indian airport runway whilst the army moved on the Tamil Tigers and re-open the airport! In the end we were late to start the volunteer work but we got there eventually!

    Fantastic Cruise On Oceana

    argh sounds a lovely itinerary!
  9. Yep! It's happened to me quite a few times whilst I was backpacking around the world! The first time it happened to me my friend and I had flown from a rainy New York to Memphis where they were experiencing a heat wave! We had to wait over 24 hours for our luggage to arrive with only jeans and a top to our name and it was boiling outside! Another time was when I flew from Seattle to Las Vegas. This time I had travelled in a dress and so as soon as we got to Vegas we just went straight out and got drunk! Then when we got back to our hotel our backpacks were waiting for us :-) So that wasn't too bad. I've found a lot of internal flights in the USA do tend to lose your luggage. My back pack also went missing when I flew home from Peru back to London. I had accumulated another two backpacks from all the South American shopping over the months! But once I got home it was my main back pack that was missing and all my family and friends' presents were in that one! so they had to wait a couple of days to get their alpaca wool jumpers and silk bed throws haha! I always carry my toothbrush, a bikini and a small dress or something in my hand luggage now in case it happens again!
  10. This is great to see, thank you... Before now I would have never thought to book an obstructed balcony and would have opted for the clear views. Having seen this I will certainly consider an obstrusted view balcony in the future

    My Recent Visit To Nautica In Liverpool

    The double sunbeds look awesome!
  13. Of the speciality restaurants whilst we were on Anthem we ate in Chops Grille a couple of times, Jamies Italian and Wonderland. I would have usually eaten in Izumi too as sushi is my favourite food but I was pregnant whilst on board and so it killed me every time I walked past that I couldnt have any!! So go there and let me know what it's like!! I have eaten in Chops Grille a few times and it was just as good as it usually is but I would still say you have to try Wonderland, it's a great experience!
