Choosing the right holiday.

It’s that time of year when we are trying to decide what holidays we should go on !!!! We decided this year that we were not going to go on a cruise as we had done one last year so a change would be a good idea. We like to make each holiday different so we don’t compare.

I started looking at different hotels in Majorca and then showed my mum a hotel that looked ideal. My mum decided that cruising was a better option as we would be able to do more, more food options and the hotel was in the middle of nowhere.

The next decision was when to go and where to go.  He does not like flying so prefers doing cruises from Southampton. My Dad does not think travelling to London via train would be much fun.

Mum and I have cracked it. My Mum and I get the train from Newark to London travelling 1st class which always starts the journey off to a good start. We then walk to Renaissance St Pancreas hotel and get an Uber to Paddington station. We catch the Heathrow express to the airport and always stay in a hotel the night before.

Any cruise lines that would like to provide a free cruise for me and my mum in a suite would be much appreciated!!!!!!!!
