Newcastle, Australia, like so many places in the world is completing a new cruise terminal. Cruise business is expanding and these new ports are there to expand with the industry. Whilst some cruise lines have ships working the Australian coast much of the year, others travel by on part of a world cruise.  https://youtu.be/u8ZGi1HBJso The Newcastle Cruise Terminal will be built...
The Marella Explorer 2 is an adult only cruise ship, with a larger premium Verandah. But water stations outside the cabins and USB sockets beside the bed so you don't need to carry chargers is a little glimpse of sense for the now, not the future.  It has a larger sunbathing area than normal on this Century Class ship,...

Viking Sun (and others), Black Watch and Seabourne Quest seem to rotate in and out of this Scottish hideaway. They are not exclusive because Azamara, Artania and Windstar cruises get in there too. Ullapool is a village of the West Coast in Ross and Cromarty, Scottish Highlands. Cromarty is a name you will hear on the shipping forecast, but to...

In March 2019, we went on the 2-night P&O Mini Cruise to Amsterdam from Hull. Here's what it's about - including practical things such as parking at the terminal, what the cabin's like, the ship's facilities and entertainment, transfers, and some ideas when visiting Amsterdam.

Avaldsnes is Norway's oldest royal seat. Back in the time when every area had a King, and they fought and married to combine areas. https://youtu.be/390zlBynBx0 This trip to Avaldsnes is the main trip for Haugesund, and most coach trips will feature it. You can easily get there on the public bus 209 or 210 from the main street. Avaldsnes is said to...
We admit there is more to see in Haugesund than we have in this film, but not much more. The beauty is the area, the buildings on the waterfront, the people. https://youtu.be/mkfS1yYPr5Q This is a quiet peaceful Norwegian town, strategically situated perfectly between Stavanger and Bergen. This is a town to get up late and walk around and just enjoy it....

Narvik was built in 1902 because it has a harbour that never freezes. A train line was built from Sweden across the EU border into Norway to carry the iron ore to the ships. It made it a prime target in times of war and was taken by the Germans after heavy bombing. Shipping routes and access to the sea have always been fought...
