Gulf Cruise Ports Appear To Be Losing Appeal
As a big supporter of cruising round the gulf as opposed to taking a weeks winter break in a hotel in Tenerife - I feel there is a good argument to be made here.
Yes you have almost guaranteed weather, the food on-board the ships is amazing, service is great, there is a full entertainment programme and you do get to visit several ports of call.

Silver Cloud 5th October 2012 New Cruise Added
Silversea cruises has released a new cruise holiday (not in the brochure) for the Silver Cloud sailing from Barcelona to Rome's port of Civitvecchia.
The Cruise Village has an exclusive pre cruise stay offer at a Barcelona hotel including flights from local UK airports.
It always makes me smile when I see cruise lines advertise themed cruises. I often wonder how customers perceive such sailings. Has there ever been any market research to suggest that regular cruisers are put off cruises because of a specific theme?
