Rising fuel duty is splitting the country into the "drives and the drive-nots", according to the AA.
Who says cruises are only for families and the blue-rinse set? The latest ships are stuffed with chic bars, trendy restaurants and sumptuous spas that would put some of the most luxurious hotels to shame.
Launched in June, Seabourn Quest is the latest of three virtually identical sister ships that each carry up to 450 passengers. Guests can start the day with a yoga class, chill in the outdoor relaxation area of the spa, flop out on deck with a free Massage Moments mini rub-down or consult a personal shopper to find out the best boutiques in port. Beach seafood barbecues and so-called caviar-in-the-surf events, plus an onboard watersports marina with water-skiing, kayaking and pedal boats, make it an ideal ship for the exotic destinations that are inaccessible to most of the bigger ships.

why so red frank, too much sun i reckon,
been cruising for years and love it, not trapped and no hard sell, going again at christmas and cant wait.
wont be thinking of you, be enjoying life instead of moaning about it
One of the very best holidays I have experienced was a cruise to Russia with Royal Caribbean
The only complaint I have with R.C they cancelled my next holiday to the Med because they re-scheduled the ship to the Canaries. I will never book with them ever again.
Sorry to hear that frank. With cruises you really do get what you pay for!! i have been on SeadDream Yatch Club 4 times in the last two years and it is an amazing holiday- their return custom rate is 86% or there abouts!
Everything is included and the staff cant do enough to help. Also, with nearly one staff member to each passenger you feel like royalty!
Granted, its not cheap, but as a result you always get a sunbed, plenty of pool space and never ever have to wait at the bar...mainly because the staff will bring you a fresh cold drink before you even realise you need a new one!!
