Cutting Edge Cruising

Cutting Edge Cruising

Celebrity Edge, Celebrity Cruises’ latest and most innovative new ship, has attracted a welter of attention – and quite right too. The ship takes modern luxury to the next level with its ingenious ‘magic carpet’, a cross between and embarkation platform and a hi-rise bar; Eden, an exotic and sensory three deck high garden space where ‘woodnymphs’ flit by night; an achingly beautiful spa and a top deck cinema.

Busy doing nothing in Greece

Busy doing nothing in Greece

“There is nothing much to do on Paxos – if living at a quieter pace, stretching out on a lovely beach or by a villa swimming pool, eating good, simple food and drinking the local wine far into the night can be called nothing.” For this reviewer, Paxos represents the lifestyle that larger, more commercialised places have lost. CV Villas offer ‘idyllically located’ properties on this magical island.

Cruising on the home front

Cruising on the home front

Places closer to home can thrill as much as the distant and exotic. On this trip, the spacious and friendly flagship of Cruise & Maritime Voyages, Columbus, sails first for Amsterdam with its spectacular bulbfields at Keukenhof Garden: all tulips ago-go. Then the ship heads north for the glens, distilleries, castles and historic chapels of bonny Scotland’s Orkneys and Isle of Skye.

Taster river cruising
Wondering if river cruising will be for you? This silver traveller explains how a 4-night trip with CroisiEurope opened her eyes to the upsides of this relaxing and beguiling form of travel.
