I think the entire cruising universe is aware by now that I can’t stay ashore for too long, once the ship’s start calling I have to answer! With that said I thought now would be a good time to let you know about my next adventure!
At the end of August I will be boarding MSC Opera for a 10-night European itinerary. Our ports of call are Ijmuiden, St Peter Port, Vigo, Lisbon, Bilbao and Le Havre. Quite an interesting selection if I do say so myself.
I am quite excited about this cruise.
World Circumnavigation, those two words together send thousands of images shooting through my mind all at the same time. It’s like a race across the globe in a split second without even leaving my chair.
For me a world cruise will be the ultimate experience, it’s my life’s goal I suppose you could say. I one day hope I am lucky enough (and wealthy enough) to embark on a voyage that would see me at sea for several months and taking in some of the best destinations our planet has to offer.
Have you ever noticed that after a cruise, especially if it is a long one, you struggle to get back into the simple things we do day in day out in life?
Like making the bed, such a chore to do again when someone has done it for you for several weeks yet you managed perfectly fine for the last however many years before boarding the ship.

Well there are just 5 more days to go before I join P&O Cruises, Ventura for a 2 week Mediterranean cruise, and after all the sun we have been having in the UK, I can’t wait! (Slogan pun not intended but pretty hard to avoid)The good weather at home always makes me think more about cruising and this time it has made my mind think non-stop about a sunny and warm sail away.
The last time I sailed out of Southampton on a sunny day was in July 2011, since then it has either been pouring wit
It’s that time of year again, summer is almost upon us and so come the thoughts of some fun in the sun for 2 weeks.
I have visited the Mediterranean on a cruise several times but I never tired of it. I love the atmosphere in countries like Italy and Spain during the summer months so it’s no surprise that I am once again preparing for a Mediterranean adventure.
The cruise I am due to sail on will also offer me two new ports of call. La Coruna, Spain and Ajaccio, Corsica. I did actually
We were sailing through the Mediterranean Sea, the sun was just starting to set and I had the entire deck to myself, this is the life, I thought. Nothing but ocean for miles around, no noise and nothing spoiling the view. It’s a feeling that never gets old.
On this particular evening it was warm outside and there was only a gentle breeze. I found myself on deck 16 and decided I would use the time to take five minutes for myself and enjoy nothing but the sound of the ocean. I can’t begin to
Working on P&O Australia recently I have been promoted to a new position. I have been classified as a "fly on" entertainer now, which means I come on for 1 or 2 cruises at a time to entertain the guests, and then I go home until my next short contract. It is a great position and gives me the ability to have more guest privileges. So I wanted to check out all of the restaurants on board and try the food out.
In the excitement of getting ready to depart for vacation, it's easy to overlook trip-related responsibilities that should be completed before leaving the house. Some of these chores make travel easier, and some are absolutely necessary. Don't leave home without checking the following list ...
