CAPTAIN COOK CRUISES FIJI:
Cruising aboard the 'Friendliest Ship in the World'
Dallas Sherringham and Michael Osborne find that going on a luxury voyage aboard Captain Cook Cruises Fiji is like going off to explore Paradise with a group of close friends aboard your own super yacht.
The cruise staff and crew aboard their superb ship Reef Endeavour are quite simply the friendliest people we have ever had the fortune to travel with in my time as a travel writer. We went on a seven night voyage to eastern and northern Fiji to explore the cultural and colonial history of the islands. Go straight to the feature ...

Our Famils Program
We love Famils! Our plan is to feature first hand, positive reviews of every Cruise Ship catering for Australians. Our leaders love & trust these independent reviews because they are written by crruising experts.
Where applicable, we are willing to pay an Editorial Fare for a good Famil of 10 days or more in a Balcony stateroom. This gives us a chance to get to enjoy the ship and review all its facilities, as well as the ports of call on itineraries.
We give everyone who hosts us or helps us with a Cruise Famil their very own Dedicated Pages and Live Links, plus we Feature the stories in our Group Magazines and Newspapers, as well as Facebook worldwide. Let's talk soon: firstname.lastname@example.org or 0418447010
I do like to be aboard the Seaside
Cruise expert, Roderick Eime, travels to Miami to inspect one of the newest and largest cruise ships in the world. The MSC Seaside has certainly set tongues wagging.
But I was intrigued with this vessel, particularly as it was the first in a brand new class of advanced technology ship from this ebullient Italian family-owned shipping and cruise line.

An Added Touch of Class
Sleek and sparkling white, the twin ferries of the Silja Line are more like cruise ships than passenger/car ferries plying the pristine waters between Helsinki and Stockholm and vice versa.
John Newton stepped aboard Silja Serenade and spent two nights sailing between the Finnish and Swedish capitals.

Riverboats and French Cuisine
There’s no doubt about it. The riverboats of a bygone era that slowly – very slowly – made their way down Europe’s iconic waterways have not only picked up speed but a wave of high-class new vessels have entered service – and, according to John Newton, upended the traditional notion that a river cruise is one big snooze.

won’t admit this (in public) but as we mature we tend to drop a few things and a very expensive drop would be our mobile phone. It might survive a dry fall, but if into water! ….

A life on the ocean waves – is the only life for me.
As a young lad growing up in the then fishing village of Watsons Bay in Sydney, where my grandfather and uncle were fishermen, I developed a love of the sea. But being a genuine red-head my complexion and the sun burn prevented me from spending too much time pursuing my dreams.
During my forties, I discovered cruise ships! Now THIS IS the life for me. Cruise on ...
