Great Belt Bridge - seen in Midnight Sun - Copenhagen was a great day. Leaving any port normally means a sail away party, and sailing out of many of the Baltic destinations is idyllic because it is almost fjord or lake like as you cruise past countless islands. Back out at sea there is now a special feature. Sailing under a...
As new ships are planned, so are the retirements. SAGA seem to have followed a lead given by VIKING OCEAN cruising with their identical smaller cruise ships. The idea is to keep the smaller special style of cruising, but add some of the essential features the larger more family style ships have brought to the industry. That does not...

The Limelight is a cabaret venue with a three course meal. It is not a restaurant where you sit, eat and talk, it is a cabaret venue and you go to watch star acts. It is like a Speakeasy but times have moved on from chicken-in-a-basket and the food has a selection of choices. It is an adult only...

At last we have a video of the renewed Century Class ship; Marella Explorer !There was quite some launch party in Palma after the naming ceromony, and surprise surprise, Craig David appeared on deck to perform.

This is still our favourite cruise route and we will be back on it with the Britannia in 2018 B818 in June. The Baltic was a main trading route from the day man built ships and it still is to this day. Many of these medieval towns were built as part of the Hanseatic League and have left us...
If you are a fan of Adults only cruising, and SAGA sounds old, then just take a moment while we convince you to rethink. SAGA are for 50 and above, adults only and are building two new state of the art cruise ships focussed on people just like you. Apart from them signing Jools Holland to front The Club By...

Fred. Olsen started in this Fjord, at the start of the Baltic cruise. They take immense pride in their boutique fleet of smaller-scaled vessels that retain the style, ambience and understated quality of a country house hotel. The dress code is a little stricter, the atmosphere calmer. Their long-serving staff are carefully chosen for their friendly, caring personalities, and they...
Fred Olsen pride themselves in the personal touch they can give on their smaller ships, and despite discussing a possible new ship they have said they will stay small. The routes they find for their ships are envious, stopping at some special places other ships cannot go to. For those who love these ships, here are the Facebook Chat...
Small ships get into special ports. SAGA is making very interesting in roads to cruising by deliberately designing two new state of the art small ships, and tying in a deal with Jools Holland for a special dining nightclub. SAGA is for adults, and their previous suggested plimsol line on age of 50 years old, now seems lower middle...
