    Carnival magic

    Important to remember that if you are going ashore independently without taking one of the cruise excursions then you should aim to get back to the ship at least half an hour before she departs as the ship will not wait for you. Don't worry to much so it spoils your day out but just keep an eye...

    First time cruiser

    For your birthday you might like to eat at one of the speciality restaurants although there will be an extra charge to pay however a lot of people think it's worth the extra cost....the steakhouse is meant to be good or Cucina del Capitano is an Italian type restaurant that's meant to be a nice...

    Is there a special meal

    Some cruisers find their special meal is when they pay a bit extra to dine in the speciality restaurants Usually I am content to eat in the MDR but have been to a speciality restaurant for a special occaision and was not disappointed with the food or service.

    Of course the big news in the UK at the moment is the huge amount of flooding at the moment. You have to feel sorry for farmers and ordinary people who have had their lives turned upside down. Somerset in the south west has been very badly hit and now other parts of the country are also...

    Thanks for mentioning about Coronado. Had no idea until your post what a great place it is to visit....also seems to have a really good beach. Have visited Los Angeles and San Francisco but haven't really considered going further south along the coast. If I get a chance it would be nice to spend...

    Fire on ' Ocean Countess '

    Can hardly believe it....the pictures show just how damaging a fire can be Such a shame.....many people who cruise prefer a smaller older ship rather than the huge more modern ones.

    Longer Port Stays.

    I have been fortunate to have a couple of nights in Bermuda ( Celebrity Summit ) and it is more rewarding spending a bit longer in a port. It would be good if a few more cruises stopped for 2 days instead of just a few hours on some Caribbean islands but I have a feeling that cruise lines make...

    Cruise information

    good that you found something suitable.....when I saw your post on oct 10th I did have a look for you but whilst I saw hotels/motels offering a shuttle service they were not budget which was what you were after and didn't make a post as I figured you had probably seen the ones I had spotted.
