Cruiseday Tuesday – Santorini

It’s the Swap Shop (ask your Dad) question which cruise captains are invariably most often asked: ‘Where is your favourite port!’ And invariably the answer is Santorini.

The Greek island with its classic azure blue domed rooftops does stand out on the sea (I’m told). Hint!

Cassidy Travel agree. They are running a seven-night cruise Greek Odyssey from €817pps including flights from Dublin.

Old relics in Athens

Aboard the Norwegian Spirit you’ll leave from Athens (Piraeus) en route to Rhodes, Kusadasi in Turkey, Patmos, Mykanos, the sights of Agostoli, Corfu.

And onto Santorini. Flights depart April 26. Visit

And here’s a Greek Odyssey of my own… and And My Greek odyssey.

Where’s your favourite port? Let me know.

A prince and Princess

Real leadership

And because I’ve seen first hand how hard and how genuinely caring Princess Cruises ate about their guests.

Here picked up from the old Twittersphere a tribute from a First Officer to his captain.

They are few and far between and I’m still looking… a good boss.

Captain Arma was last to leave #DiamondPrincess. He is a hero in our eyes.
