World cruise? If 4 months is too long then is the shorter 45 days tempting? The Oriana leaves on a Caribbean and American Discovery on the 6th January 2018 and with the autumn weather here in the UK before the end of August and leaves dropping fast I feel a need for sun and escape.

Rome - Angels and Demons - the best way to see it is with the rush of a Hollywood movie ! Rome is best seen on an Angels and Demons tour, having first refreshed your memory by watching the Ron Howard film of the Dan Brown book once again before you go. Sadly Tom Hanks will not be running around...
