Me neither Steve. Some friends of ours said but there’s entertainment every night, I said that makes it even worse.

I, for one, cannot understand why anyone would ever subject themselves voluntarily to the modern 'cruise experience'.

Each to his own. Did cruise the Croatian islands last year. 32 passengers. That’ll do.

Exactly!

It took me 25 years to get my wife to go on a cruise.

April 2002 we travelled to New York on QE2. Her first holiday on a ship. We encountered a hurricane. Saw whales in dead calm seas.

My wife has booked every cruise since.

Moved on from Fremantle and now staying in Perth for a while catching up with some old friends who immigrated out here.I have Never been on a cruise before and the wife (HEAD OFFICE) has booked us on the brand new P&O ship Iona for a cruise to Norway later in the year so I have an open mind on cruises at the moment.To be honest I have always looked at them as Butlins on the sea not that I have ever been to Butlins and I have always imagined that they are like that.
Been on Ferries across to France and head office and I sailed a yacht around the Greek Islands together when we were younger so a cruise will be a new experience on water for us.

Thanks BB.

The ships are repositioning for the Summer. (Hopefully) to be ready when things get better.
