    Hi Dan
    Welcome to the forum. I would hesitate in recommending a particular cruise line as I know nothing about you, your likes and dislikes. People are liable to recommend their favourite cruise line to you which in all honesty may not be at all to your tastes. For an overview I would say families who want to enjoy themselves and have fun should try looking at Royal Caribbean, NCL, Carnival, and the larger ships of Costa and MSC. If the children are over 13/14 then add Celebrity and Princess into the equation. Most cruise ships in todays world offer a similar product.

    Popsicle got a reaction from cabin boy in Celebrity Cruises Evening Chic   
    In general I love the formal nights, the whole atmosphere of the ship changes, and it makes it feel special! At 32 I consider myself a younger (ish) cruiser, and for one personally I would be sad to lose the formal nights altogether.
     
    The only exception to this would be the long haul sailing where precious airline baggage is used with formal dress and shoes - wouldn't mind not having the formal nights on those!

    This is about the only 'Reality' Celebrity show I watch... it's great. I dismissed it for years and ended up watching it a couple of years ago and now love it!
     
    Looking forward to this years!

    Just to let all those of you who gave me such good advice with regard to the decisions I had to make re. my luggage allowance for my flight back from Sydney.
     
    Good news!
     
    With the help of Bolsover my problems are resolved. I have changed from Cathay Pacific to British Airways for my flight and will be able to arrange for an extra case now. Cathay Pacific say that they intend to change their excess baggage regulations to be in-line  with other airlines during next year.
     
    Many thanks to Bolsover, again.

    In keeping with Forum rules I tend not to rise to the baiting and goading by two certain members, however this false and scurrilous comment needs to be addressed if, for no other reason, it is an unwarranted slur on the good name and excellent work of The Royal British Legion.
     
    Please allow me to set the record straight regarding a certain pin badge.
     
    While manning the poppy table at my local Asda store I was approached by a gentlemen whom I recognised as a retired fellow member of the Royal Navy...
     

     
    That gentleman enquired as to the availability on my table of a Royal Navy pin badge. It so happened that at the time the Poppy Co-ordinator for the ‘Gosport and Alverstoke District’ was also in attendance as it was nearing the end of my shift.
     
    She interjected to say that she had a small number and would fetch them from her car. On her return she had two pin badges which closely resemble the ‘White Ensign’. Both the gentleman and I agreed to purchase those pin badges and each of us placed a £5.00 note in the official sealed RBL collection tin on the desk.
     
    Those two pin badges were sold to us by the Royal British Legion under the circumstances I have now explained and were never considered as representative of any other organisation other than the Royal Navy and the Royal British Legion.
     
    Between us, that gentleman, a retired Fleet Air Arm Chief Artificer, served our country for over 55 years and I consider the slur made in the above comment utterly disgraceful.
     
    The accusation is false and if  repeated anywhere I will seek legal advice.
     
    PS. My sincerest thanks to those members who expressed their views during my absence in Krakow (see below) last week.

    It is with regret that we feel the need to intervene in this thread. Until now, we have taken a step back and watched how the conversation unfolded. The post was not deleted and will not be deleted as it is unfair to take down a thread supporting such a worthy cause for the sake of arguments unfolding. Nevertheless, it does need addressing. Please may we remind ALL Cruise Club Forum members that offensive, abusive and argumentative posts of this nature are frowned upon and will not be tolerated. We ask politely that this STOPS NOW. If this continues, further action will be taken.
     
    We would prefer this not to be the case and would very much appreciate members abiding by the rules and expectancies of this forum.

    Good morning members.
     
    I was delighted to receive an email link to a fellow Cruise Blogger's site, of which I am a registered follower, which offered a review of his visit to Bolsover Cruise Club's Headquarters.

    **Admin** This post needs deleting, this thread needs to be locked & this 'person' who is so intent on dragging this through the dirt needs a polite shove out the door please.
     
    For the record, I neither condone nor endorse the actions of the EDL. I find them a despicable bunch, but this is not the platform for these discussions to be taking place. I for one congratulate Solent Richard for his charitable efforts (regardless of the source of his lapel pin) and applaud him for remaining stoic and not rising to any of the disparaging comments that have been made against him.

    As a member of the forum, and of the cruise club itself, I am deeply disappointed to see such personal slurs being aired on this thread. As many have said, there is a time and a place, and this forum is most certainly not the place.
     
    132LK132 - Your comments have done nothing but come across as bitter and underhand, and to be quite frank made you look like an unsavoury character yourself. I suggest that if you have no positive input, or contribution to make that you take yourself somewhere else and leave this forum alone. You will not succeed in silencing our most valuable members who regardless of previous forum activity, bring a massive amount of information and help to this site.
     
    Enough is enough.

    MSC are really up & coming. I am hearing more and more positive comments about the cruise line, their ships and what is offered onboard! A colleague recently returned from an MSC and said they wouldn't hesitate to book another cruise with them! Adding Cirque du Soleil into their entertainment program is only going to help increase their popularity in my opinion! Would love to try them!
