The majority of itineraries include a combination of culture, history and beautiful beaches, therefore appealing to a wide variety of cruisers. A selection of cruise lines offer itineraries which focus purely on history and culture, incorporating ports such as Venice, Athens, Katakolon for Olympia, Istanbul, Dubrovnik for Croatia, and as far down to the Israeli ports including Haifa and the closest to Jerusalem, Ashdod.

Croatia

Dalmatian Coast & The Adriatic Sea: Usually embarking the ship in Venice, an Adriatic cruise tends to always stop in Dubrovnik, incorporating calls to the Italian port towns of Ravenna and Bari, or sometimes even the more unusual Eastern Mediterranean ports such as Kotor, for Montenegro. A shorter itinerary of these cruises sail back to Venice, whilst the longer itineraries either continue to sail to Greece and Turkey, with Greek highlights such as Katakolon, the birthplace of the Olympic Games or sail around the coast of Italy, with stops in Naples or Sicily before disembarking in ports such as Rome, Marseilles for France or Barcelona.

shutterstock_276217397

The Black Sea: Usually these itineraries depart from either Istanbul for Turkey or Athens for Greece. A cruise around the Black Sea has a combination of stops along the Turkish coast with stops to Crimea for Yalta and Odessa and Russia. There maybe occasional, stops in Romania and Bulgaria.

 

shutterstock_589402736
The Black Sea

The Greek Isles: A great way to visit the Greek Islands is from a cruise. Usually cruises embark from either Athens or Istanbul, and the majority of  Greek Island itineraries stop in the major ports, such as beautiful Santorini, and the stunning islands of Mykonos and Corfu. Kusadasi, for Turkey, is home of the ancient city of Ephesus, which is usually included within the itinerary.

shutterstock_119203960 (1)Santorini

 The Holy Land: The Eastern Mediterranean itineraries sail down into Israel to make stops at Ashdod, the closest port to Jerusalem or Haifa to Jerusalem. In the past, these itineraries tended to make stops in Alexandria, for Egypt, however with uncertainty within the country, travel has been restricted in recent years. The Cypriot ports, both Limassol and Paphos are also popular, with embarkation usually in Athens or Istanbul

Unique art work!

As an overall cruising region, the Eastern Mediterranean incorporates a wide selection of areas  including the Adriatic coast of Italy and Croatia, the Greek Islands,  Istanbul and Kusadasi for Turkey, and the Black Sea, which includes ports in Turkey, the Ukraine, and Russia. A selection of itineraries visit the Holy Land, with stops including Cyprus, Israel and subject to foreign office advice, Eqypt

The area is becoming increasingly one of the most popular areas within Europe to take a cruise. Combined with ancient history, it’s picturesque villages, and golden beaches, this area offers a truly laid back feel.

Many of the Eastern Mediterranean itineraries begin from, and take in ports of call such as the city of Athens, Greece (Port of Piraeus) Venice for Italy and Istanbul, Turkey. Some cruise lines also offer a combination of both the Western Mediterranean and Eastern Mediterranean, and may begin in, or end in ports such as Civitavecchia for Rome, Barcelona for Spain.

A popular time to cruise around the Eastern Mediterranean ranges from spring time, March / April through to September / October. As anticipated, summer is the peak season, and has the largest number of sailings and passengers, pricing is also generally much higher within the summer months, with very hot and humid temperatures

Generally, cruising around the Mediterranean has is becoming increasingly popular, with cruise lines such as MSC and Costa Cruises offering itineraries within the winter months, as sunny skies, and moderate temperatures typically between 50s to 70s. Cruise lines tend to offer longer cruise itineraries, combined with lower pricing and excellent value for money

The majority of itineraries include a combination of culture, history and beautiful beaches, therefore appealing to a wide variety of cruisers. A selection of cruise lines offer itineraries which focus purely on history and culture, incorporating ports such as Venice, Athens, Katakolon for Olympia, Istanbul, Dubrovnik for Croatia, and as far down to the Israeli ports including Haifa and the closest to Jerusalem, Ashdod.

Tipping crew members and staff has long been a tradition associated with cruising. Guests who are new to cruising can be in for a shock when they realise, just how much of an extra charge is added to their account, and guests who cruise on a regular basis can get lost with each cruise lines tipping policy

shutterstock_623084588

Gratuities are at the discretion of the guest, and the cruise line advise that guests can tip an amount that is comfortable to them, under the recommended daily amount set by the cruise line. Of course, guests can decide not to tip and are advised to contact guest services, however this is not encouraged.

Adding to the confusion, are the varying amounts from one cruise line to another, usually the US lines charge the highest rates, starting at around $13.00 per person, per day. A typical family of four on a two week cruise would see around $728.00 (£560.00) added to their account, which can be very off putting

Comparing tips to UK companies such as P&O Cruises, who charge around £6.50 per person, per day, with children under the age of 12 years, not being included in the tipping policy

shutterstock_129940547

Guests who enjoy premium staterooms, or suites can be subject to a higher rate of gratuities, to account for added extras and services, and in some cases, the services of a butler

There are some cruise lines that offer gratuities within the cruise fare, including Azamara Club Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Regent Seven Seas, Seabourn, and Silversea

It has been argued that cruise lines should absorb the cost of tips into the cruise fare overall like some premium cruise lines, such as Crystal and Seabourn and Azamara. In April 2017, Norwegian Cruise Line announced that the whole fleet will include not only gratuities, but a beverage package within the cost of the fare, with this in mind, will other cruise lines follow suit?

On average, here is what can be expected to pay on some well known cruise lines:

Carnival Cruise Line – $12.95 per person per day, up to $13.95 per person per day for suite guests

Celebrity Cruises – $13.50 per person per day up to $17.00 per person per day for suite guests

Cruise & Maritime Voyages – £5.00 per person per day, this reduces to £4.00 per person per day on sailings with a duration of more than 16 nights

Cunard – $11.50 per person per day, up to $13.50 per person per day for suite guests

Disney Cruise Line – A set $12.00 per person per day across all stateroom grades

Fred Olsen – £4.00 per person per day, chargeable for all guests over the age of 12

Holland America Line – $13.50 per person per day up to $15.00 per person per day for suite guests

MSC Cruises – Charges differ between the age of the guests, and the itinerary. For example on a Mediterranean cruise, guests aged 13 years plus would pay 9.00EUR per day, children aged 3 years to 10 years would pay 4.50EUR per day, and children under the age of 3 years, would pay nothing

Oceania Cruises – $16.00 per person per day, up to $23.00 per person per day for suite guests

Princess Cruises – $13.50 per person per day, up to $15.50 per person per day for suite guests

Royal Caribbean – $13.50 per person per day, up to $16.50 per person per day for suite guests

Southampton Port welcomed its first P&O passenger ship in 1840 and paved the way to become known as the Cruise Capital of the UK.

At present, an ever increasing number of ships and liners are making calls into the Port of Southampton, and figures taken from 2015 saw over 1.7 million passengers gracing the waters of Southampton

Within the Port of Southampton there are four cruise terminals with cruise lines such as P&O Cruises, Cunard, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises ,MSC, and Fred Olsen offer various itineraries throughout Europe, and more faraway destinations sailing from Southampton

southampton
Port of Southampton

Over £40 million has been invested in the four cruise terminals, and within the surrounding area, and infrastructure by the Associated British Ports

The main benefits of cruising from Southampton means that there is no checking in, and waiting at busy UK airports, no restrictions on luggage and baggage, and is very well suited for passengers who have a fear of flying

Apart from being known as the Cruise Capital of the UK, Southampton has many attractions and things to do including the SeaCity Museum, an innovative state-of-the-art museum giving an insight into Southampton and its connections with the cruise and ships industry that have made Southampton the port it is today, including information and insight into the City’s Titanic heritage

Before sailing into sunnier climes, Southampton is home to the Alpine Snowsports Centre. If passengers are staying in Southampton, either pre or post cruise, this is an activity for all the family. Located within the trees at the 150 – acre Outdoor Sports Centre, the Alpine Snowsports Centre provides winter sports throughout the year. The centre caters for beginners and advanced levels.

If passengers prefer a slower paced activity, Self – Guided Walks are popular with passengers including;

  • Southampton Old Town.  Explore England’s well-preserved, third longest stretch of medieval town walling and step back in time to find out more about Southampton’s Old Town.
  • QE2 Mile. The QE2 Mile is the pedestrian route that runs through the heart of the city from the Cenotaph down to the waterfront at Town Quay. It links the city’s parks, new cultural quarter, shopping high street, old town and the waterfront. It is the most visited part of the city and has many historical features, the Cenotaph, the Titanic memorial, Holy Rood church that was bombed in the war, and the famous Bargate stands at its centre. The QE2 mile is the economic heart of the city with more businesses along its route than anywhere else in Southampton.
  • Titanic Trail. The trail takes in many of the memorials and locations associated with Titanic.
  • Curious about…Southampton walks. Take the fabulous walks of discovery, and have fun finding answers to clues which tell you more, whilst reading  stories about the most interesting facts

 

Southampton can be easily reached by car, train and a short flight from various UK airports, for those who prefer not to drive, or fly, coach connections are offered from varied departure points across the UK

Following my recent ship visit in Liverpool on board Caribbean Princess I was impressed by the ease of arrival to the cruise terminal, the warm welcome by the terminal staff and the overall ease of boarding the ship

DSC_0077
Caribbean Princess at Liverpool Cruise Terminal

The majority of ships departing from the UK , usually sail from Southampton, which for guests in the North of England can entail either a flight from a northern airport, therefore restricting baggage allowance, and can be a nightmare in itself, with checking in and security. Another option is the gruelling four to five hour journey by either coach, or self driving to the port and parking for the duration of the cruise holiday.

Our drive from Manchester to Liverpool was relatively smooth, and I was surprised that it had taken around an hour and half, and this included the morning traffic and the 50mph speed restrictions on the M60 Motorway

The approach in itself was pleasant, with the view of landmarks such as the Liver Building, the iconic grand building which overlooks the River Mersey and was once hailed as the tallest building in Europe when built in 1911, and today is Grade 1 listed

On arrival to the port, car parking was easily accessible in the multi story car park directly opposite the terminal, with the cruise ship in full view and took less than 5 minutes to walk to the terminal.

Situated in a central location in the Irish Sea, Liverpool Cruise Terminal has become one of the most popular cruise destinations within Europe boasting a vast richness in maritime heritage and was the departure port for the first passenger cruise line and since opening the cruise terminal in 2007, many cruise ships and ocean liners have berthed there.

Liverpool Cruise Terminal invites international cruise passengers and has become a favourite with guests over the years and has been voted ‘Best UK Port of Call’ no less than three times within the last four years by Cruise Critic, and was voted ‘Destination of the Year’ in 2015, by Seatrade

On accessing the terminal we were greeted with the Liverpool Ukulele Orchestra, a group of smiley and friendly locals playing various hits from Liverpool’s very own Beatles. The atmosphere was joyful, and for the international guests arriving into the port of Liverpool for the first time, created a fantastic first impression.

DSC_0078
Liverpool Ukulele Orchestra

I was surprised at the range of excursions this vibrant city had to offer cruise guests, so I have listed some top picks below, that Princess Cruises offer in, and around Liverpool.

The Beatles – A short drive to visit John Lennon’s home he lived in as a boy, and Paul McCartney’s boyhood home, with a guided tour of each home. A narrated drive through Liverpool, and stops for photos at Penny Lane and Strawberry Field. Guests can take a walk down Mathew Street, to the site of the Old Cavern Club where the Beatles performed over 300 times from February 1961 to August 1963.  A trip to The Beatles Story, located on the Albert Docks, showcases exhibits that chronicles the ‘Fab Four’ from their days spent in Hamburg, to their final break – up.

Liverpool City Highlights – A half – day narrated drive around the city of Liverpool allows guests to experience the sights and sounds of Liverpool, passing the Royal Liver Building with its towers topped by the Liver Birds, and a drive past Pier Head, the Town Hall and Chinatown. The tour continues with a visit to Christ the King Cathedral, Liverpool’s Roman Catholic basilica, and the Anglican Cathedral, boasting the title of the largest cathedral in Britain. Along the way, photo stops are taken at the Walker Art Gallery and St. George’s Hall, which is considered one of the finest neo – classical buildings in Europe.

Best of the Lake District – A full day tour, includes travel by land, train and lake. A scenic two – hour drive to Lake Windermere in the Lake District, the largest lake in England. Guests then board the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway for a steam train tour of the Leven River Valley. Free time to explore Bowness, a pretty and charming village on the shore of Lake Windermere

Conwy Castle and Town – A full day tour exploring the beautiful countryside of North Wales, with a scenic drive along the North Wales coastline to Conwy Castle. Conwy Castle is dubbed as one of the most impressive castles in Wales and boasts three fortified gates and no fewer than eight towers

Cruise Lines departing from Liverpool include, Fred Olsen and Cruise and Maritime, to name a few!
