I got there just as everyone was leaving but unfortunately I couldn’t find anyone who spoke English to find out what was discussed. I...

For those not familiar with this restaurant, it’s a sort of international tapas with the menu on an iPad.This morning we... This short extract has been cross posted from my Wordpress Blog.

By the looks of it the ship is not that manoeuvrable with its azipod problem. It’s not a difficult port to get into so the azipod problem...

Gatwick and British Airways came up trumps for both flights. Our first flight was at 8:30am in the morning so we concluded that it would be a good...

The roof top terrace bar wasn’t open and there was a wedding reception on in the function room up there so we ended up in the ground floor in the Royal Bar. No sign...

I was surprised about how many locals had turned out to see us off. When we eventually got back to the cabin our cases were outside waiting for us. Nicole made short work of unpacking...

I still had no success with the button to summon bar staff but did manage to flag one down so took the opportunity to ask if I was doing it correctly. I was told a light should come on...

I’m not sure why they are not always available but it was great that she was again able to eat well. After food we ended up meeting with some fellow forum friends in the Seaside Lounge and were...
