    7 Questions with Steve @ Northern Territory, Australia

    "You can do the NT in style whether you are in the city or in the heart of the Outback." I gave this a google and quickly got roped in to looking at all the amazing accommodation options around Uluru. Wow! No idea there was 5 star resorts and glamping options available. Not a place I had thought about visiting but it really does look incredible. Great answers Steve, you sold me on the Northern Territory!

    @Sam the Sailor Whatever luxury cruise you choose you will not be disappointed! The service is next level and unlike anything I have experienced even on a 5* cruise. It just keeps getting better and better! Let us know if you decide on a ship, would love to hear what you have chosen.

    Favourite family cruise line?

    @WanderWoman NCL are great for families and kids, but I would recommend Royal Caribbean if your kids are a little older - they are a great all rounder! Plenty to keep them entertained without feeling like the cruise is just catered for children. I don't know how old your kids are, but Royal Caribbean ships offer things like a surf simulator, zip lining, teen parties and a dedicated teen lounge so they don't have to be seen with mum and dad!
  6. All-inclusive drinks packages have become wildly popular, with each cruiseline putting their own spin on how they are sold. More and more people are questioning the “all-or-none” policy that most cruiselines have in effect. It means that everyone of drinking age in a cabin must purchase the package. Do you purchase a drink package when on a cruise? Is it fair that everyone of age within the same stateroom must buy a package?

    10 fascinating historical sites on St Kitts

    I LOVE St Kitts - main header image is where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean, so the waves crash into the land in opposite directions

    River Cruising for Beginners

    River cruising offers an unrivalled means of travel, ideal for making new discoveries. Your ship is a luxurious, floating hotel, so unpack just once, settle into your spacious, light and airy cabin and enjoy the views as the scenery slips by. Travel at a gentle pace, which gives you time to get to know your destination and experience the local culture in more depth. Generally, your ship will dock in the heart of the town, so you have no tenders to navigate, no long queues before disembarking, no travelling at a breakneck pace in order to complete a visit before the ship prepares to pick up anchor. While many itineraries include the great cities of the world, a river cruise will also allow you to discover the hidden gems lying inland along the banks of the river. Whether you’d like to experience ancient cultures, explore some of Europe’s most exciting cities, or discover the striking peaks and gorges of China’s Yangtze River, river cruising has the vessel and itinerary to suit you. Post your river cruise questions in the chat and fellow travellers or our Barrhead Travel's river cruise specialists will help answers any topics you want to discuss.
