Hello and welcome.
We are Patrick and Peter from Manchester UK and if you enjoy reading about cruise ships, looking at photos of cruise ships and drinking cocktails (preferably on a cruise ship) then you are in the right place. We aim to throw a little light on the world of cruising from our unique perspective i.e. Us.
The origins of this blog first started when Patrick decided to keep a daily diary of our cruise holidays over the years. It was just for us back then. During the cold winter months, it was a real tonic to reread the adventures we got up to whilst onboard. The many cruise ports we visited, the amazing people we met and the glorious ships we sailed. This year we decided we would like to share those stories with more people.
Patrick likes to blog about how cruising makes him feel. How it engages the senses from the vastness of the ocean to the awesome spectacle of mother nature. From wonderment at ancient historical sites to the smallest of details like a chocolate on the cabin pillow.
Peter handles the more detailed aspects of cruising. The nuts and bolts if you like. He plans our cruises with a skill and discipline that would not be out of place in a Michelin starred restaurant. As a former Project Manager this is a massive bonus. He’s very organised. He is a mine of information on things like drinks packages, loyalty schemes, speciality restaurants, pre and post cruise hotels, car rentals and airport transfers. He is always happy to answer questions so feel to drop us a line anytime.
With 30 or so cruises under our belt across a variety of cruise lines like Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Celebrity, P&O, MSC, Cunard & Norwegian we’ve learnt a thing or three. We’ve made mistakes and survived. We’ve lost luggage and survived. Drunk way too many cocktails and survived…just.
So why not sign up and come along as we continue our High Seas Escapades.
