Naples is one of the most popular Italian cruise ports and there’s so many different things to see and do during a day in port.

If you fancy exploring Italy’s third largest city then there’s plenty to keep you occupied. You could visit Cappella Sansevero, a Masonic inspired chapel with some incredible architecture. You could check out Teatro San Carlo, Italy’s […]

Why I Would Love to Go On A River Cruise

By |August 21st, 2014|Ports & Destinations|0 Comments

I absolutely love the idea of river cruising yet I haven’t actually been lucky enough to go on one just yet. I know people who have been on them and have raved about how wonderful they are and it really makes me want to book one to discover it for myself.

I know it would be completely different to ocean cruising […]

Barcelona City Guide for Cruise Passengers

By |May 27th, 2014|Destinations, Ports & Destinations, Spain|0 Comments

The Catalan capital, Barcelona, is becoming an increasingly popular port of call for cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean and I can definitely see why. I adore the city with its striking architecture, sporting attractions, delicious tapas and the tantalising option of exploring the city or simply relaxing at the beach.

If you’re visiting Barcelona as a cruise passenger then here’s my […]

Visiting Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

By |March 11th, 2014|Ports & Destinations, Spain|0 Comments

Before visiting Las Palmas de Gran Canaria as part of our cruise with MSC I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting to like this city anywhere near as much as I did.

I had simply expected to find a pretty standard touristy city with a gorgeous beach (each of the Canary Islands are blessed with stunning beaches!) and I certainly […]

A Day in Fuertaventura

By |March 6th, 2014|Ports & Destinations|0 Comments

Our cruise itinerary originally hadn’t included the Canarian Island of Fuertaventura however, an itinerary change due to bad weather found us stopping there. As we hadn’t been supposed to be calling in there we hadn’t done any research on what the island had to offer (other than nice beaches which I think each of the Canary Islands is blessed with!).

When […]

One of the highlights of our cruise on board MSC’s Armonia was visiting the port of Casablanca, the largest city of Morocco.

This was my first every foray into Africa (my fifth continent!) and I couldn’t wait to explore.
One of the main attractions of the city is the imposing Hassan II Mosque, the biggest in the country, which sits right on […]

A Day in Lanzarote

We arrived in Lanzarote on board MSC’s Armonia and had already decided that we wanted to hire a car for our day there.

We disembarked the ship and strolled along to the car rental office, within the confines of the port. Within 10 minutes we were walking out with keys to our rental car for the day. We paid 50 euros […]

What To Do in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

By |January 28th, 2014|Ports & Destinations, Vietnam|0 Comments

Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay is sure to be a highlight of any cruise, it certainly was for me on my recent Silversea cruise. Ha Long Bay is world famous and for good reason – it is absolutely stunning and widely recognised as one of The New Wonders of the World.

The sail into Ha Long Bay is worth getting up early […]
