Cruising The Venetian Dream

Cruising The Venetian Dream

By Flavia Gray, GoCruise

My own greatest journey has to be the first time I took my Mum and daughter on a cruise.  It was on Voyager of the Seas for a seven night Adriatic cruise from Venice on 6 August 2011.  Being with people experiencing a cruise for the first time is a joy in itself, however what really made this journey great was the Port of Venice.  I had heard so ......Read more

Exploring The Islands of Split and Dubrovnik

Exploring The Islands of Split and Dubrovnik

By Gary Hudson

In October 2014 I was fortunate enough to join a band of very lucky individuals, mainly from Australia, South Africa and Canada on-board the ‘MV Spalato’ A+ category 36 person private yacht operated by Katarina lines out of Croatia. Immediately on-board it felt like a house party, everyone so friendly, finding out who each other was, where they had travelled from and often, as most of the fellow travellers were on multi stop ......Read more

Cruising the Douro

Cruising the Douro

By David Stock

The River Douro – I recently cruised on the Douro in Portugal in September and have to admit this is one of the most picturesque rivers I have been on. I have visited and been on a couple of River Cruises and cannot believe how nice the experience is from start to finish the whole experience is just amazing. I have been on many Ocean cruises but with River cruise the number of passengers is less and really offers you that personal ......Read more

Allure of the Seas – Big is beautiful

Allure of the Seas – Big is beautiful

By Kirsty Ricketts Travel Counsellor

Living only 10 miles from Southampton, too many it probably seems madness that I flew to Barcelona to join a cruise ship. However my reasoning was that Allure of the Seas, currently the largest cruise ship in the world, was spending her summer season in the Mediterranean following her spruce- up in dry dock earlier this year. Approaching Barcelona Cruise Terminal, it is hard not to be taken aback by Allure's size. She takes up two passenger terminals in length and the Norwegian Epic, ......Read more

A Britannia Adventure from Lisbon to  La Corunna

A Britannia Adventure from Lisbon to La Corunna

By Richard Hill

May 2015 and I decided to try a 14 day cruise on the new P&O flagship Britannia. As normal boarding was easy, car parked and bags disappeared, on board for lunch. Britannia is a different ship for P&O more like a good hotel inside with contemporary colours and a style that’s a bit more corporate. ......Read more

Venice: My First Cruise at 50

Venice: My First Cruise at 50

By Stephen Bellingham Personal & Business Travel Counseller

My greatest Journey was my first cruise for my 50th. Our couple of nights in Venice before our European cruise made a great difference to the enjoyment of our holiday. We learned a lot about the pros and cons depending on the particular client. Staying on the Lido proved good value and a new area for us both. We hadn't appreciated the ease of travelling by Vaporetto ......Read more

Belize City

Belize City

By Steve Wright - Manager Worldchoice Travel

For me, the port of Belize City, and indeed the country as a whole, perfectly sums up the beauty of a cruise above and beyond many land based holidays. Belize is a country that myself or my family knew very little about prior to our recent cruise. Similarly, the country is not really on the main tourist maps or routes, therefore not somewhere we would really have considered visiting on a regular holiday ......Read more

Great Journey to Alaska

Great Journey to Alaska

By Jane Bowen

I would like to share with you a Great Journey taken in June 2015. I had a “significant” birthday and wanted to celebrate by going somewhere my husband and I hadn’t been before. Although we have been on many cruises around the world we had never been to Alaska. So, we decided to embark on a 7-night Alaska cruise from Vancouver to Whittier, and also included 3 nights ......Read more

Treasures of a Danube River Cruise

Treasures of a Danube River Cruise

By Lizzie Adamson: Travel Counsellor

I was over the moon to be invited on board the MS Treasures for the 2015 Tauck Academy. I’ve also wanted to try River Cruising and this was the perfect opportunity, as well as gaining professional accreditation. As a child, I was a dancer and imagined dancing the waltz with my beloved grandfather in a Viennese palace with live music. I couldn’t take grandad, but knew he’d be with me all the way  ......Read more

Panama Canal

Panama Canal

By Daniel Essex

The six great milestones in cruising are said to be sailing around the Cape of Good Hope or Cape Horn, through their man-made shortcuts the Suez and Panama canals, an Atlantic crossing between Europe and North America or a voyage around the world. Of all these only the Panama Canal gives you the sun-drenched delights of the Caribbean and the natural delights of Costa Rica and the Baha. It takes all day to sail the 80 kilometres of the Panama Canal. Still, that’s not a ......Read more
