My Journey aboard Avalon Tapestry II

First Impressions: We boarded Tapestry II and were immediately greeted by warm and welcoming staff, the first thing that struck me about the ship was the nice ‘homely’ atmosphere. Check in was very smooth and within a matter of minutes we were in our stateroom unpacking. The ship had 4 decks with a lift, small […]

Lorraine’s holiday to Malaysia.

I have recently returned from an amazing holiday to Malaysia, staying in Kuala Lumpur and then onto the beach resorts in Borneo. Incredible wildlife, amazing powder white beaches, untouched natural beauty and unique adventures make Malaysia something of a holiday gem.

MSC Meraviglia naming ceremony.

We had the most wonderful time as we celebrated with representatives from 192 countries whom all sell MSC Cruises. This brand new exciting ship, […]
