Barcelona! Barcelona! You can hear the late great Freddie Mercury sing. It is a place of great food, great wine, wonderful architecture, fountains and art. The art starts at the port but as a cruise passenger you have no chance in seeing everything in a day; which is good. Barcelona is a place you can go back to many times....

The worst places for thieves and pick pockets I am pretty streetwise but I have been pick pocketed twice. Twice in the same place and it does not appear on the Trip Advisor top ten.

Coats with hug pockets for heavy items! But, always remember, you can ship your bags separately from the airline. See here. And if you are picking...
The CRUISE Show, Europe's leading cruise event, visits Birmingham later this year and is set to be even bigger and better for 2017! Hopefully Birmingham will be a more exciting event than Olympia, but to ensure numbers we have seen tickets for only £2, we asked why bother charging at all? Surely the idea is to get numbers. Those leaving...
How to overview a destination the way film scouts do it We have been making films and television for a while so we tend to approach new ports the same way. To be frank it is similar to cruising, you are dropped in a new town, you have a set amount of time and a job to do. As a...
