Hello cruise enthusiasts!! My name is Becky, hello and welcome to my blog ‘Sail with Saddoo’. I have worked within travel for over 11 Years and I now have solely focused on cruise holidays for 9 of those years! Im completely crazy about cruising. I Cruise regularly on my own family holidays and am a fountain of knowledge when it comes to the particulars such as kids clubs and family facilities. I also occasionally get to cruise without the family and enjoy this just as much. Cruising is a minefield and there is so much to a cruise holiday, nevermind the variety of ships and their destinations but also things like entertainment and dining make it difficult to choose what is best for you and your requirements. This is where I can help the most as the key is suiting the ship and destination to the right holidaymaker to ensure the best possible cruise experience! I hope you enjoy reading my blogs and feel free to contact me directly I would love to hear from more like minded people who are crazy about cruising 

So you may know from my previous blogs from last year that i was planning to revisit my favourite ship so far Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas. Just to recap last year me and my family went on The freedom of the Seas sailing from Barcelona around the med and i fell in love with the ship & staff on-board and generally the whole experience from the food to the service & entertainment was exactly what we wanted out of our family holiday and more. When the holiday had come to end we swiftly made the decision that we wanted to try and book on the same ship for our 2018 holiday.


On arrival home and back to work & school for us i started to look at the possible itinerary’s for 2018 school holidays to see what i could find and started to put together an idea that has now turned into our dream holiday! During the 6 week summer holiday period Freedom is doing 7 night Caribbean sailings from the port of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Given my daughters age (nearly 7 now) we have never wanted to do anything that involves long haul flights, therefore we have always stuck to the Med for our holidays and the furthest we have ventured as a family is Egypt. After a few lengthy family discussions we decided to book the cruise only knowing the flights were not available yet and decided on the below itinerary.

FREEDOM OF THE SEAS Itinerary

Everybody loves the finer things in life but I personally like spectacular food & wine!! That is why on a P&O Cruises the food heroes cruises would be perfect for me and other like minded guests. Theses selected cruises allow guests to sail alongside some of the best renowned celebrity chefs. Guests can expect to sail with the likes of Olly Smith, Eric Lanlard, James Martin, Atul Kotchar or Marco Pierre White all dependent on which sailing it is. As you can imagine these sailings sell out quick, so be aware interest is high therefore early booking is certainly highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

So what can we expect from the celebrity chefs?

food heros 2

Atul Kotchar

2 star Michelin chef Atul Kutchars onboard restaurant Sindhu blazes the trail with Indian style fine dining. His dishes are created with passion using quality ingredients and the finest spices used at sea. He utilises classic indian dishes with a Britsh twist to find the perfect balance of flavours for his dishes. Guests can join him for a exclusive hosted dinner or why not try one of his onboard master classes? perhaps even a carefully crafted shore excursion.

Ollie Smith

Ollie smith is a wine expert aswell as T.V presenter. For anyone passionate about wine you may fancy a Madeira tour. You can learn the behind the scenes secrets of wine making at the world famous Blandys vineyard where Ollie hosts the tour personally.

James Martin

Much loved presenter and Celebrity chef James Martin mainly known for his Saturday morning kitchen show will be turning up the heat on Britannia during a range of 2 hour cookery classes onboard at the cookery club.

food heros 4

Marco Pierre White

3 Michelin star chef Marco Pierre White with a career dating back to the 80’s has over the years taken the restaurant scene by storm. Marcos passion for fresh ingredients of sound provenance continues with P&O. He is the mastermind behind Ocean grill restaurant on Adonia & Arcadia skilfully and carefully presented with his trademark flair. He offers popular master classes aswell as demonstrations with a hands on 2 hour cookery class in the cookery club on Britannia.

Eric Lanyard

Master pâtissier Eric Lanlard has earned himself an international reputation for superlative baked creations for an impressive A-list clientele. British tradition takes teatime decadence to a new level in The Epicurean restaurant on board Azura, Britannia and Ventura, and in Ocean Grill on board Arcadia. Expect the unexpected with roast beef brioches, smoked salmon macaroons, exotic pop cakes and chocolate cannelloni, beautifully presented in elegant surroundings. During a Food Heroes specific cruise on Britannia, Eric will host the cookery class he developed especially in our year of celebrations to mark 180 years of P&O Cruises history. Guests can join him in The Cookery Club to create salted caramel macaroons and the pop cakes you may have enjoyed at his Afternoon Tea. This course also runs when Eric is not on board, in the safe hands of our Head of The Cookery Club.

Sound good? why not call or email me for more information regarding these amazing opportunities to sail with your favourite Celebrity chefs.

Hurricane Irma has lefts its devastating marks on the Caribbean and Florida and there are still a few cruise lines that are utilizing there ships to help in the relief effort. The cruise lines continue to supply deliveries and even are donating funds to the most damaged ports towards recovery. Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Line and Carnival Cruise Line have all helped by deploying there ships to deliver supplies such as clothes, food and water to the most devastated ports and even in some cases assisted with rescue missions. Carnival also announced that they will donate 100 percent of proceeds for Chris Tuckers upcoming live comedy performances to help. Following suit is Royal Caribbean who have announced that they will match donations up to 1 million for affected communities! also Carnival corporation & plc together with the Miami heat charitable fund and Mickey and Madeleine Arison family foundation have pledged upto $10 million for rebuilding and relief after the wrath of Irma. Islands such as British Virgin Islands, Barbuda and St Maarten have suffered extensive damage from the worst storm for at least a decade however the Caribbean tourist board have said that fewer than 10 percent of hotels and resorts are set to be closed for longer than a week. As holidaymakers understandably worry about travelling in the future to the Caribbean on forthcoming holidays hopefully the below should answer some queries….

weather

 

When is the Caribbean hurricane season?

The hurricane season runs from June until the end of November and can affect the Caribbean as well as Eastern and southern U.S.

How frequent are Hurricanes in the Caribbean?

On average in a season 10.1 named storms take place with an average of 5.9 becoming hurricanes and 2.5 of these becoming major hurricanes.

 

I hope this helps going forward for future travel to the Caribbean. In the Caribbean our tourism is relied upon so lets not let the weather stop us travelling!!!
