My whistle-stop tour of Canada involved a jaunt between Montréal and Québec. The options open to me were to fly or to take the train as I refused to drive the 160-mile, three-hour journey. As I needed return transport, I opted for both.
Your holiday may not stop at just the cruise.
There may be flights, train journeys, hotels, and airport transfers bolted on before and after your trip.
Follow me as I travel the world by cruise ship and read my honest reviews about all aspects of travel. Read about the flights I endure, the train journeys I take, my airport transfers, and the quirky hotels I stay in.
If you have shared the same experiences as me, leave a comment and let me know whether you had a better or worse time. I would love to hear from you.
I found myself needing a London hotel room anywhere in the capital. With no need to stay centrally and Saturday night hotels costing a small fortune, I opted to stay in the west at Heathrow Airport.
It was time to head to the capital again. I needed to travel from Cardiff to central London ahead of my trip to see MSC Meraviglia. I did the usual price checks at National Rail and National Express.
Despite its status as the cruise capital of the UK, Southampton lacks good quality, affordable hotels.
When I researched Liverpool hotels, I knew I wanted to be close to the Cruise Terminal.
The last time I travelled on a National Express coach was over a decade ago as a student. Back then I valued price over comfort. Recently I needed to get from Cardiff to London Heathrow Airport to catch a flight to Tromsø.
I recently flew to the Province of Québec as part of a whistle-stop tour of the region. My Economy flights were serviced by Air Canada. I thought I would share my experience and a few tips.
I flew one way from Québec City Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB) to London Heathrow Airport (LHR) via Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL).
As part of my MSC Cruises holiday package, the company arranged my return flights and overseas transfers on my behalf. I was told to arrive at London Gatwick Airport (LGW) for a British Airways flight to Genoa Cristoforo Colombo Airport (GOA).
