MSC Meraviglia exterior shot

The Meraviglia’s Italian name translates to ‘wonder’; which is pretty accurate considering her glamour and incredible innovations. After her maiden voyage, the reviews were full of positives.

She contains many firsts for MSC Cruises and two sister-ships are also on order.

STATEROOMS

MSC Meraviglia has 14 decks and 22 different room categories ranging from basic inside cabins to Wellness Deluxe Suites. The hues chosen for the traditional cabins are elegant and tranquil and utilise earth tones with a mix of cocoa and several shades of charcoal. Upgrading to Yacht Club cabins as seen below is an entirely different experience with huge rooms and breathtaking colour schemes.

MSC Meraviglia Yacht Club Wellness Deluxe Suite

MSC have introduced a new concept onboard the Meraviglia known as “Super Family Cabins” which consist of two Balcony cabins connected for families and groups of up to 10 passengers.

A new type of stateroom is also available and bound to be a hit with solo travellers. The interior inside cabins are designed tastefully and singles won’t be required to pay double the fare.

Standard inside cabins are bigger than the industry norm with plenty of storage space too. The square footage increases with the category chosen.

DINING

Foodies of all types will be very pleased at the fantastic array of dining options available. There are 12 free or for a-fee-specialty venues to dine in.

Inclusive dining can be obtained at the traditional fixed time “classic” restaurants Waves, L’Olive Doree & L’Olivo D’Oro and also Panorama. The latter offers four or five course meals with views that are spectacular.

Of course, there is the Marketplace Buffet which is bound to be popular with those wanting a bite to eat at odd times, as it is open 20 hours a day. Besides pizza, pasta and salads, there’s a good choice of traditional and ethnic cuisine options. Whether you choose something from the “fruit and vegetable market” or another station, the open kitchens are in full view to all.

Fee dining is well worth considering too. Prepared on the spot sushi and teppanyaki featuring some of Asia’s best sashimi and tempura can be experienced at Kaito Teppanyaki.

The All American Butchers Cut steakhouse features big cuts of thick and prime beef served to your personal taste.

The Eataly Ristorante Italiano serves authentic Northern and Southern Italian cuisine. The restaurant also has an option to indulge in the ‘chef’s table’.

HIGHLIGHTS & ACTIVITIES

The MSC Meraviglia is so full of activities that you may be tempted to not even leave this state-of-the-art ship when she calls at port!

The first thing that you will notice whilst strolling along the Galleria is the “atmospheric digital sky” created by a 5,200 square foot screen. This massive LED dome is filled with every colour of the spectrum and depicts abstract designs dotting the ceiling one minute and then changes to stained glass mosaics the next.

Even pre-meals onboard are something unique with a new concept called “pre-dinner parades”. These are short entertainment performances and take place mostly on the bridge over the Promenade. There are dancers, singers and performers of all kinds dressed in elaborate costumes. This parade serves as a sampler of the entertainment on the rest of the ship.

Kids and adults alike will enjoy the Aqua Park, which contains four heart stopping water slides and a splash pool. Thrill seekers can try out the Himalayan Bridge, a zip line located near three other pools.

MSC Meraviglia Aquapark

The Carousel Lounge contains all the latest in technology and is surrounded by a 180 degree circular glass wall. MSC has now laid claim to be the only line to feature the world famous Cirque de Soleil in the Carousel Lounge. Their incredible acrobatics can be enjoyed 6 nights of the week. There are two options to enjoy Cirque de Soleil; as a dinner theatre or just the performance.

Another first for the cruise line is “MSC for Me”, which serves as an interactive concierge. This digital service will allow passengers to book activities and meals with their family and friends and allow them to see each deck.

Other activities include a miniature carnival complete with a merry-go-round, a bowling alley that’s perfect for a casual night and an inordinate sports arena. The sports arena has areas suitable for basketball, football and volleyball.

There are activities for technology fans as well. Technological related fun consists of two F1 Racing Simulators, a 5D cinema, a Flight Simulator and arcade games ranging from the retro to the truly innovative.

MORE ACTIVITIES FOR THE LITTLE ONES

Children will never be bored on the ship as there are many activities especially for them. The children’s club, Doremi Lab consists of rooms separated by age group as well as an interactive room for the family. There is also a “laboratory” where children can work with 3D printers and laptops and conduct “experiments”. Doremi Lab is sponsored by LEGO, making it more appealing to kids that are fans of the brand.

MSC Meraviglia Doremi Lab

Other family activities include a family disco and a farewell party at the end of the trip. There is also a teen’s club which is directly adjacent to the kids club and is filled with the latest video games, sports competitions and dancing with the lounge being one giant floor.

THE ITINERARIES

Presently, the MSC Meraviglia is offering 7 Night Mediterranean Cruises visiting Barcelona, Marseille, Genoa, Naples, Messina and Valletta. Any of the Mediterranean cruises can be embarked in what would be of convenience to the passenger with a choice of Genoa, Messina or Barcelona.

The itinerary changes in November of 2017 and adds Civitavecchia (Rome) and Palermo to the offering. This will be consistent up to April 2018 when the ship will head north. The sailing of the 18th of April 2018 departs from Genoa towards Hamburg on an 11 night trip with stops at Marseille, Barcelona, Cadiz (Seville), Lisbon, Vigo, Southampton, Le Havre and Hamburg.

This voyage can be extended for an additional 11 nights with added ports including Invergordon, Kirkwall, Greenock, Dublin, and Cork. For the summer of 2018, the MSC Meraviglia will be based in Northern Europe offering a variety of itineraries consisting of 10, 11 and 21-night sailings before returning to the Mediterranean in October.

My Recent Cruise Onboard Oasis of the Seas
TEXT SIZE A + A -

Oasis of the Seas

It was time once more for our annual cruise and for May 2017, we chose Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas. She is the first of the Oasis class of ships and has been in service since October 2009.

It has been a few years since I boarded a RCI ship!

The cruise departed from Port Canaveral in Florida. After our long flight from London, it was very much appreciated to spend the week just chilling out.

The Oasis did a Western Caribbean itinerary which included Labadee in Haiti (RCI’s private beach retreat), Falmouth in Jamaica and Cozumel in Mexico. We had been to all three ports on previous cruises and opted to skip Jamaica to enjoy the ship and spa.

CABINS

There are a good variety of types of cabins available on onboard, as found on all of Royal’s ships. Besides inside and balcony cabins overlooking the sea, there are those within a themed area such as Central Park filled with flora and fauna or the Boardwalk with a carousel and colourful neon lights. Of the remaining there are the mini-suites and grand suites.

The cabin we resided in for our Caribbean week holiday was a mini suite that truly outclassed many other “mini suites” on various cruise lines that we have cruised on. Cabin #8236 was located on the Central Park floor. It was very spacious with an entire walk in closet, an enormous bathroom with tub and was also mid-ship with a balcony that offered a spectacular view of the ocean.

Take a look at a selection of Oasis of the Seas Staterooms

We even dined on the terrace as the balcony afforded a table and chairs, as well as chaise loungers. There was also a large flat screen TV. The dresser size is more than sufficient for any clothing you take although you would not be wise to not use the walk in closet, a rarity for cruise ships.

The bathroom was well stocked with L’Occitane products such as shampoos, conditioners and soap bars. There are also two plush and soft bathrobes that are perfect for lounging around the pool or spa areas with.

DINING

Although you may think of buffets and endless cocktails when it comes to cruising, Royal Caribbean truly shines with their specialty dining options. With the wide variety of selections on display, there are enough culinary choices to please even the pickiest eater.

Oasis of the Seas Windjammer Cafe

Starting with the buffet itself, the Windjammer Café, actually manages to make a cruise buffet an excellent experience in its own right. Every night, the themes change based on the ports you arrive in. Interested in trying some Jamaican jerk chicken or some Haitian style spare ribs? It’s all possible here!

We enjoyed our experience in the Windjammer Café on one evening, but did tend to favour specialty dining. That turned out to be just as impressive.

Chops Grille, also located in the lovely Central Park district offers the feel and the food of a fine steakhouse. The Park Café is also located in Central Park and serves up Panini’s, wraps and other comfort food in a casual atmosphere.

At Izumi, diners can opt for either a stylish sushi bar or a teppanyaki meal. We chose to opt for the sushi bar and were delighted by all of the varieties available, some of which we had never heard of!

The Mexican delights of Sabor offer not only a tasty treat for all but also a wonderful view of the Boardwalk area whereas Giovanni’s Table has enough Italian pastas and antipasti to please the whole family in the midst of Central Park.

We found the Park Café was an excellent choice for our breakfast, as it not only contains lovely areas to dine al fresco but allows you some tranquillity from the masses.

If you wish to dine at these or any other restaurants for lunch or dinner; make reservations as soon as possible. A tip is to review the dining venues before you leave home and write down dates and times you want to request.

ENTERTAINMENT

When it comes to entertainment options Oasis of the Seas really shines.

Gamblers will be thrilled to hear that the onboard casino, cleverly called the Casino Royale, takes up nearly an entire floor with an endless row of slot machines and other gaming favourites such as blackjack and roulette.

There are four swimming pools for leisure pleasure; including a children’s pool with colourful waterfall-like statues. My personal preference was at the solarium, near the back (aft) of the ship.

Although it is enclosed, it means that you have a place to swim no matter what the weather is like. It also is considerably less crowded than the regular pools. Don’t worry about not catching any sun though, as it is enclosed in glass the sunshine comes pouring in. There are also some smaller pools in the relaxation room of the spa.

Of course, no cruise is without its show stopping productions and the Oasis of the Seas is no exception. The main attraction on the liner is a full production of Cats at a traditional length of two and half hours. I have seen the Andrew Lloyd Webber production both on Broadway and the West End before and this one was no different in talent and enjoyment.

For me, the standout was the amazing Frozen in Time ice show. Located on Deck 4 at Studio B, the ice show details the life of famed writer Hans Christian Anderson and several of his most popular stories.

This show is perfect for children and others of all ages. The grace of the dancers is sure to amaze, especially when you realize they are performing on a moving ship. The show contains minimal dialogue so it transcends language barriers into a true masterpiece.

Oasis of the Seas Frozen in Time ice show

Another show we enjoyed was the ABBA tribute which also plays at the main Opal Theatre. It presents the groups entire history and combines surprisingly funny jokes with enough charisma to please a general audience; even if you’re not an ABBA fan.

Other options include a Comedy Show and at the AquaTheater, a water and acrobat show. On evenings when the show does not take place, the venue is used as a cinema in which recent films are shown on two large screens.

Although entertainment is gratis, due to the number of passengers, seats tend to get snapped up quickly. Reservations are necessary. This can be done when you embark; however, it is best to do so online weeks before the sailing.

VITALITY SPA

As with other cruise holidays, we never miss out on a trip to the spa. You will feel like you are brand new again after a refreshing visit to the Vitality Spa. The spa contains a wide variety of treatments from basic facials and massages to more exotic options including acupuncture. The massages will rid you of any aches and pains that are troubling you. I left feeling unbelievably relaxed.

Oasis of the Seas Vitality at Sea Spa

Image: Vitality at Sea Spa

The overall décor of the spa is very relaxing with a plethora of soothing colours and dim lights to create a soothing atmosphere. Even the process of being in the waiting room is enjoyable and calming. The enzyme facial deep cleansed my face and left my skin soft and smooth.

Any imperfections such as pimples or frown lines will be diminished by this technique. It’s best to go to the spa during port days as there are often special discounts held on those days. The spa also contains a hairdresser salon that is perfect for a quick cut or a manicure if necessary.

A word of advice; it’s best to make your reservations online before you leave home.

IN CLOSING

Not normally a fan of Mega-Ships, Myself and my family were rather pleased with our experience and it certainly went beyond my expectations. The way the ship is configured; means there are plenty of private areas and you never get the feeling that you are amongst 6000 other passengers.

Besides enjoying our meals, we found Central Park to be a unique nook to feel open air privacy. Nothing was lovelier than to be sitting within a park-like atmosphere (a first for RCI and the cruise industry). In the evening, there was classical music with strings that made it even more enjoyable.

Another area ideal for a stroll in the evening was in the atrium. Besides the glitz of glass and chrome, walking through the various stores and stopping off for speciality coffees or a pizza, made us feel as though we were in a mall!

Royal Caribbean did a brilliant job and I am certain their other Oasis class ships also offer a refreshing, relaxing experience.

5 Ships for the Kids Summer Holidays
TEXT SIZE A + A -

Kids Summer Cruise Holidays

With the summer holidays approaching fast, a cruise makes for a great holiday choice. More and more cruise lines realise the importance of a family traveling together, whilst also understanding that all involved have their own needs.

Many cruise lines make it easy for the adults to dine alone away from the children. Yes, couple’s can still have dinner for two in a specialty restaurant indulge in the spa and head to a casino or view the sunset.

Meanwhile, during these couple alone periods, children can enjoy their own activities to the fullest in a supervised and safe environment.

Cunard’s Queen Mary 2

When people think of Cunard’s elegant style, it comes as a surprise to see that children are well catered for. The Queen Mary 2 more than delivers in the child friendly aspect with a packed daily activities programme, especially for their summer holiday voyages.

The Play Zone and The Zone are located on Deck six and cater to all age groups. Deck 6 is home to Minnows Splash pool too, a favourite amongst the toddler set. The Play Zone is suitable for toddlers to 7 year olds with fun competitions and arts and crafts.

Older children and teenagers can have fun at The Zone with activities such as table tennis, video games and sports on the deck. Teens also have access to Apple Mac computers and can learn amongst other things, new graphic design software.

Watch the Ask Cunard video

The Queen Mary also has a designated nursery just for infants, so even the youngest member of the family will be well looked after, whist the parents can visit a port or dine alone.

Many sailings depart from Southampton, making it a huge convenience for those who reside in the UK.

Besides transatlantic sailings to or from New York, first time cruisers can venture on one of the short three or four day sailings to Le Havre, Hamburg or Bruges. A longer closer to home adventure offered this summer is an eight day Norwegian Fjords sailing.

Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Magic

Well known for their family friendly entertainment, Disney has spared no expense when it comes to fun on their ocean liners such as the Disney Magic. Disney’s Oceaneer Club stands out from other cruise lines as it features detailed replicas from classic Disney and Pixar films such as Andy’s Room or the factory of Monsters Inc.

Of course, kids have plenty of chances to play with their favourite characters and take part in special events all trip long. Teenagers aged 14 to 17 can also enjoy themselves in the Vibe Club with movie screenings, karaoke competitions and other fun filled activities.

Disney Cruise Line offers cruise holidays varying from five to ten days for their cruise holidays aboard the Disney Magic Cruise Ship.

These voyages visit Copenhagen, Oslo, Kristiansand and Stavanger.

MSC Meraviglia

MSC Cruises has expanded and caters to children more than ever before. The newest ship to MSC’s fleet, MSC Meraviglia will begin sailings in June 2017.

Planned facilities for the youngest have been designed in partnership with the LEGO Group and Chicco. Other age appropriate activities are scheduled through children’s’ clubs. The double-deck indoor amusement park will assure parents that their children will never be bored.

Summer 2017 sailings have the MSC Meraviglia cruising around the Western Mediterranean visiting Genoa, Marseille, Sicily, Naples Malta and Barcelona. Passengers can embark in Barcelona, Genoa or Marseille.

P&O Ventura

Although it may not be as large as the other cruise ships, P&O Cruises Ventura still manages to go above and beyond when it comes to children’s entertainment. The Ventura, which had an upgrade in 2013, has a large Kids Club and is the most family friendly ship of the P&O fleet.

This club includes an entire water fun area complete with a splash pool and a substantial water slide as well as a kid’s disco, the Reef Rangers where children can dance to their heart’s content.

For parents wanting a night on the town, they offer a night nursery for the under 4 age group. Besides designated areas for both the adults and kids, there are family friendly swimming pools and dedicated family restaurants with early eating times.

This certainly makes for a balance of parents having periods to themselves without worries and food family quality time spent together.

Various sailings from four to seventeen days makes it just the right fit for all. Ports of calls include those in the Greek Isles, Western Mediterranean, Spain, Portugal and the Canary Islands.

Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas

It should come as no surprise that there are many things to do for young passengers on a Royal Caribbean ship and the fifteen deck Independence of the Seas does just that.

The ship has a unique aspect that appeals to both young and old; an ice skating rink which is a real challenge with some winter fun in the midst of the summer! The FlowRider surf simulators located on the very top deck lets the whole family catch a wave or two.

The Adventure Ocean Club is well known amongst Royal Caribbean fans and has an abundance of activities, that entails enrichment, creativity and recreational.

Top Short Cruise Holidays for 2017
TEXT SIZE A + A -

Short break cruises, sometimes known as a “mini-cruise” or a “sampler” are one of the best options for those with time constraints. A short break cruise provides a welcome break without too much expense. One of the key factors people look at when booking a cruise is the price.

Two, three or even five night holidays are much easier on the wallet! 

A mini cruise will give you the chance to depart directly from the UK, making the holiday a comfortable convenience of leaving close to home rather than the hassle of having to get to the airport. Instead, begin enjoying your holiday the minute you step onto the ship and chill out for that much needed break.

Other advantages of a mini-cruise include:

  • Ideal for first timers
  • Destination discovery
  • Try new cuisines with a number of dining venues
  • Attractive pricing that you can upgrade without breaking the bank.

The following ships are the top picks for 2017 and offer a range from the casual to the elegant. Many of the same cruise lines offer short cruises on their other ships too.

Boudicca

Fred. Olsen Boudicca

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ contains a vast amount of British elements. This is apparent with their ship, Boudicca. Boudicca is a compact ship, holding slightly more than 800 passengers but it more than makes up for that in size by being purely classical. Eat at simple yet charming locations like the Four Seasons Restaurant and the casual Tintagel Restaurant for some traditional dining.

You can also try the Secret Garden café for an authentic atmosphere that will have you believing you are in a Zen garden. The café serves a mixture of Indonesian, Thai and Indian cuisines in a buffet style. The aim of Fred. Olsen is not to be a mere cruise line but to feel more like a “home away from home”.

2017 highlights:

A five night round trip cruise from Greenock sails to Fort William, Ullapool and Invergordon, combined with scenic cruising through the Hebrides on the 26th May 2017.

Spend some time in the Cafe Carinthia and Chart Room, the first and most principal of the common areas.

The entire ship is decorated in an aesthetically pleasing Art Deco design and this is evident in areas such as the Queens Room, the Royal Court Theatre and the Britannia Restaurant amongst others. This is a cruise for someone who wants a more elegant experience at an affordable price and this is easily achieved with a short break cruise aboard a ‘Queen’.

Recently refurbished at a cost of £280 million, the Norwegian Jade has a more modern appeal in an Art Deco style. With all of the trimmings and the colour scheme, the ship feels more welcoming than before.

An update of the accommodations has created more expansive living quarters. A new addition to the Jade is the addition of the Cavern Club, as seen on the Norwegian Epic.
