Follow Us Live On Our Latest Cruises!

Although we are currently battling to finish off the Spring edition of World of Cruising magazine (publishing on March 15), we will be providing live coverage of TWO contrasting cruises in the next week or so as our man Steve Newman heads off on another adventurous cruise in Norwegian waters with Hurtigruten while I will be on Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Epic (above) for a week in the sunny Caribbean (how big a contrast could you want!).

Steve will be enjoying the best of the classic Norwegian coastal voyage while (hopefully) taking in the Northern Lights on board Hurtigruten's traditional vessel, sailing from Bergen to Kirkenes. It is one of our favourite cruise areas, but is not featured much during the winter months, so it should be a great insight into this region, as well as Norway's wonderful hospitality.

I will be enjoying slightly warmer (hopefully!) waters as the huge Norwegian Epic undergoes her typical 7-day winter routine, sailing from Miami to St Maarten, St Thomas and Nassau, while also offering 3 full sea days to enjoy the vast range of entertainment options on this unique ship.

It will be our first full voyage on the Epic and it will be interesting to see exactly how things unfold with no less than 20 dining venues and a truly mind-boggling array of live attractions to take in. We are big fans of the famous Blue Man Group (who have permanent shows in various parts of the US, including our Orlando, Florida, base) but there is a LOT more to take in, so it will be extremely illuminating to see it all take shape.

We will, of course, also have a full feature on the ship in the Spring edition, so make sure you have your subscription fully up to date on this link!
