Lunch On Board The Emerald Princess

“We’ve booked an inside cabin, but with a non-obstructed view” I overheard at the check in area, Um OK, you’re going to be disappointed, I thought to myself. My love of travel extends to all forms transport and I was recently invited to take a look around the Emerald Princess, the largest of the Princess fleet…

Would You Jump From A Plane?

A glass of wine, some food and a good movie is for me, what I like to do when on a plane. For others it might be different. My Friends Jessie and Manita recently went skydiving and here is what Jessie had to say: A couple of days ago, I conquered one of my biggest fears and went skydiving…

Golden Princess – The Food, Oh The Food.

“How come you got a Gold Cruise Card? Mine’s blue?” Said my friend Nova as we checked in for the Golden Princess. “Yeah mines blue too” Bert pipped in looking slightly confused. “‘Cause I’m a Gold member!”  I replied.
