A Day in Fuertaventura
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 […]
What to Do in Casablanca, Morocco
One of the highlights of our cruise on board MSC’s Armonia was visiting the port of Casablanca, the largest city of Morocco.

Nha Trang is a popular beach resort however I found plenty of things to do during my time there that didn’t involve lying on the beach!
From where we […]
Silversea Cruise Review
I recently returned from a fantastic cruise with Silversea on board Silver Shadow. During my nine night voyage I sailed from Hong Kong down through Vietnam and ended in Singapore. I’ll be posting port destination guides in the coming weeks so keep an eye out for them but for now here is my […]
