Cruise Ship Reviews

Big ships, little ones, or something in the middle?

Do you want to enjoy peace and quiet at sea? Or do you want non-stop fun with something to keep the entire family happy?

Size divides many cruise addicts. Some prefer the intimacy and tranquillity of smaller ships, together with the less-trodden destinations they visit. Others prefer the buzz of larger ships, with non-stop action available 24/7.

Choosing a cruise ship can make or break your holiday. Book yourself on the wrong one, and you may well end up with the holiday from hell. But book the right one for your needs, and you could be in store for the best holiday in your lifetime.

My guides will help you get a feel for a variety of cruise ships and will help you pick the right one for your next holiday.
