We did a Caribbean cruise about 5 years ago - will definitely do another.

Imagine the scene:
we are in port with the sister ship alongside on the other side of the jetty. Captains must have thought this was a good idea to get us to drink lots of (not too expensive) beer / wine / cocktails. So they issued us with flags to wave and we started a singing competition against the other ship, this went on for a couple of hours. The passengers were in the majority "older" (wife's 50th) so a lot of WW2 type songs + Tom Jones! We were very tipsy when the other ship pulled out of port, and left us looking at a German cruise ship. A ship full of drunk British tourists, with more alcohol, flags and a target. Very bad hangover next morning, and a large bar bill.

A few days later in another port we shared a taxi with a nice German couple, they wanted to know "didn't the English know the war was over" - go on how do you explain it Embarassed Tangiers Orange - gone, missing her
Replaced by Ewok what a mistake - now a happy Disco Sport owner

Hi Steve, Iona 7 nights from Southampton, not ideal for us up in Scotland, but will give it a go.

really enjoyed Azura and looking forward to seeing the fjords.

We did the Caribbean on the Azura and I’ll give you a tip - don’t pay extra for the larger balconies. You can see the whole deck has them in that photo, just above the life rafts. Trouble is, there is zero privacy because everyone above you is directly overlooking you. Our friends used to shout down to us in the morning from the top running deck! Past: FL2 TD4 HSE Auto
