TUI Cruises took ownership of this ship in 2017, it was previously the lead of the Vision Class ships operated by Royal Caribbean. It is the sister ship of the Discovery, so they are very similar, which allows lovers of this ship to have twice as many itineraries and destinations to choose from. It has the outdoor cinema and a rock climbing wall, a minigolf course, an indoor pool and a glossy atrium. It has the same number of bars and excellent dining options, as well as top class entertainment. So you could watch either or both films to get an idea of the ship. The Discovery 2 also has the Kora La, a fine dining experience at a slight premium. Renowned chef Ian Pengelley offers his duck and watermelon salad in a menu that has a heritage in south and east Asia, featuring dishes like Indian spiced king prawns, and Indonesian beef rendang curry. An additional fine dining option is the à la carte Surf n Turf – which specialises in the likes of marbled steaks and meaty lobster tails. Meat, fish and plenty to satisfy a vegetarian palate. Check with the terms when booking, but TUI Discovery, TUI Discovery 2 are All Inclusive as standard that means drinks, including prosecco and cider are included. Flights and tips are both part of the package, too. 11 DECKS, 918 CABINS, RESTAURANTS, BARS, POOLS, LIFTS

READ THE CRUISE BEFORE YOU CRUISE THE SEA. In the book charts, SOLO CRUISER BOOK SERIES. Violet Becket has never cruised. In fact, she has been nowhere in a long time. Too long. Book 1, Virgin Voyage has been in the book charts for some weeks now.

Violet has never had romance, never ever. As an older woman time is running out and she needs to make a change. This romantic read is based around cruises because once she cruises she loves it. That is her romance, well, there is a little more. Sally Katz used the films on Doris Visits to peg her books on! With permission. Each is a good read but there has yet to be a book based in this region, even though each book takes place on a cruise! Book 1 is a Canary Islands cruise, Book 2 is in the Baltic, Book 3 is in the Caribbean, and Book 4 goes from the ABC islands through the Panama Canal.
