World cruise? If 4 months is too long then is the shorter 45 days tempting? The Oriana on the Caribbean and American Discovery back in 2018, fighting the autumn weather here in the UK is a typical 49 / 50-day cruise. A long cruise is such an experience. If you have done a short cruise surely leaving the ship has been hard; having got used to leaving your towels on the floor and going down to choose what you want from the terrific menu, surely you wish you could stay. A world cruise, like the one we featured in our P&O Arcadia’s wonderful Polynesian & Asian Adventure is 114 days. That is nearly 4 months and is quite a commitment, but the sea crossings don’t get feel long, the holiday just gets better. As they say, you are only on this earth once and it is not a rehearsal. …. or you could leave you money in the bank – I don’t think so! The P&O ship Oriana has never been on our rotation, however, I was just writing a blog on the Mexican port of Progreso and the trip to Chichen Itza, the Mayan and I discovered what a wonderful cruise the Oriana offers. Some of my favourite ports like Key West (Jean’s film available) which is often hard to find on a trip, and places on my bucket list like New Orleans. Oriana leaves on a Caribbean and American Discovery on the 6th January 2018, a fifty-night cruise, which takes in these ports. Take a look at all the amazing details now.

Essentials – cruise travel labels and our cruise crime novels – oh, and the seasickness bands.
The Port guides here on Doris Visits are a great way to remember your cruise and share with your friends. The crime novels are a whole new experience. You may not have been to the ports in the novels, you certainly won’t have been to the parts of the ship they use. All the cruise crime novels will make you feel like you are in the adventure and on the ship – dodge the bullets and stay out of the romance. Ship and cruise accurate, the novels are a great way for new cruisers to discover a ship too. Please share the Amazon link. .CRUISE SHIP HEIST https://amzn.to/2GKQBIp
QUESTION: If I travel and I am more than 24 weeks pregnant am I technically un-insured and liable for all the bills?
ANSWER: Check with your insurance company and lawyer before you travel, but it appears all the companies say no travel.
