Star Pride: what a treat!
Well, what a treat this was! I have just returned from a fantastic voyage with Windstar Cruises on the newly refurbished luxury yacht, the Star Pride. It was the Star Pride’s Inaugural voyage, since having had a major facelift, and it certainly delivered on all levels! We sailed from Athens through to Barcelona, stopping off at various ports throughout Greece and Italy. It was such a lovely experience, and one the most intimate cruises I have been lucky enough to have sailed on so far, carrying just 312 guests!
Exquisite Cuisine on Seven Seas Voyager
"Nothing can elevate travel quite like cuisine."
We really enjoyed our time on board Seven Sea Voyager, especially with the variety of restaurants on offer and overall dining experience. The food was exceptional and mealtimes on the ship were made easy with flexible sitting times and a range of formal and informal restaurants, including dining in your suite which was a firm favourite for myself in the mornings. My butler soon became used to my regular order of Eggs Benedict, followed by the most delicious Brioche French Toast!

We have had a look at some of our favourite cruise ports around the USA and want to share with you, our readers, why we think you should visit on your next Elite Ocean or Expedition Cruise!
Culinary Delights on the Silver Moon
Can I just start by saying how nice it was to resume travelling again! Olivia and I were extremely fortunate to be one of the first to sail on-board the brand-new Silver Moon as she embarked on a summer season of Greek Itineraries. What a magnificent ship she is!
In this blog, I am going to talk more about our food experience on-board, and all the different styles of restaurants on offer!
SHIP REVIEW: Scenic Amber
If you haven’t tried a River cruise before, why not give it a go? I would highly recommend this to anybody of any age. There are so many options of itineraries, ranging from magical Christmas Markets, to the beautiful Danube or The Rhine, or one of my personal favourites the stunning Douro!
A Quick Guide to Yacht-Style Cruises
With svelte yachts offering a glimpse into the elusive cosmos inhabited by A-listers and fashionistas, suddenly cruising has dropped anchor in a new realm. Boutique-style offers a unique insight into the wunderkinds of cruising. Unlike gin palaces where bohemians rub shoulders with billionaires and rock stars mingle with royals; our collection is less ostentation, more sophistication.
