Welcome

I’ve finally made it back to Jetline HQ after being stranded in Dubai for a couple of weeks due to the volcano cloud causing the massive disruption to flights! I can’t really complain as there are worse places in the world to be stuck but I know it has caused some of our passengers considerable inconveniences and I would like to thank you all for your patience and all the team at Jetline for their tireless effort in trying to assist as far as we could. For any customers who are now thinking even more seriously about booking a cruise which departs from the UK in order to avoid disruptions to their holiday due to flights, we’ve dedicated some additional space this month to rounding up the best holidays on offer which depart from UK ports and also bring a whole feature to give you a little more information on the three main ones – Southampton, Dover and Harwich. If you’re looking to travel further afield, we’ve also pulled together a selection of our current best packages for this month from some of our top cruiseline partners – fancy visiting the glaciers of Alaska, the glitz of Las Vegas or the stunning scenery of Canada and New England, browse some of latest deals and give one of our expert Cruise Specialists a call. Don’t forget this is just a small range of our offers so even if you don’t see what you are looking for, we can most definitely find it for you! And don’t forget, all bookings are eligible for Cruise & Save points, and we are offering double points on some of our cruises this month so call now to ensure you don’t miss out! For those readers who have already experienced a cruise (or more than one!), we’ve launched a new area on our website for your reviews and would love to hear from you. Just log on to www.jetlinecruise. com/cruise-reviews.aspx and tell us all about them. Plus, as a thank you from us, we’ll reward you with 100 extra loyalty points onto your Cruise & Save account which you can save towards great freebies or adding value to your next holiday you book with Jetline Cruise. I’m delighted to announce the winner of our 2009/2010 roving reporter competition on page 14, and a massive thanks to all of you who to took the time to vote, we’ll keep you posted on the progress of our lucky winners and follow their story over the next couple of issues of Cruise Ahoy. So I’m off for now, to slap some more moisturiser onto my rapidly fading tan, have a great month and we look forward to hearing from you soon.

Happy Cruising Ian Gilder Head of Cruise

Cruise Industry News

Well, what a few weeks we’ve just experienced in the world of travel! None of us could have predicted the effects of that unpronounceable volcano in Iceland. Happily, many of our cruise line members sailed to the rescue including Celebrity Eclipse who collected 2,000 stranded holidaymakers in Spain, Cruise & Maritime picked people up in Morocco and Portugal, Thomson & Island Cruises brought back passengers from Spain and in general, we have seen the industry coming together to help each other out.

Women Rule The Waves As P&O Cruises Welcomes First Female Captain In 173 Year History

“Growing up near the water I always

loved boats and the ocean, so it really does fulfil a lifelong ambition of mine to be a Captain with P&O Cruises’

SARAH BRETON, CAPTAIN P&O ARTEMIS

1,200 passenger ship Artemis is on a ‘maiden’ voyage of a different kind, as she set sail recently with P&O Cruises first female Captain, Sarah Breton, at the helm. 
 Captain Breton, from Essex, was officially welcomed as Master of the ship by P&O Cruises first female managing director, Carol Marlow. Marlow commented: 
“We are delighted that Sarah Breton has been promoted to the role of Captain on board Artemis. Sarah has worked on board P&O Cruises ships for many years and truly deserves to be Master of Artemis. We wish her every success in her new role.” 
 Captain Sarah Breton said: “Growing up near the water I always loved boats and the ocean, so it really does fulfil a lifelong ambition of mine to be a Captain with P&O Cruises. It is made even more special to be Captain of the first cruise ship I ever served on, after joining P&O Cruises as third officer back in 1989.” Sarah, now 45, has served on board Royal Princess (now Artemis), Sky Princess, Canberra, Pacific Princess (the original Love Boat), Grand Princess and Star Princess as third officer, second officer, navigator, first officer and safety officer. She was first promoted to staff captain in 2001 on the original Pacific Princess and then went on to serve onboard Coral Princess, Tahitian Princess, the new Pacific Princess, Artemis and most recently Ocean Village. Captain Breton lives on the Essex Coast and when on leave spends her time in the garden, sailing - whenever the weather permits, watching Six Nations rugby and Formula One motor racing.

Celebrity Cruises today celebrates achieving “a perfect 10.” Richard D. Fain, chairman and CEO of the brand’s parent company, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., and Celebrity’s President and CEO Dan Hanrahan recently participated in a shipboard ceremony marking the transfer of ownership of Celebrity Eclipse from shipbuilder Meyer Werft to Celebrity Cruises, bringing the fleet to a total of 10 stunning ships. The 2,850-guest Celebrity Eclipse entered service in April and offers a series of sailings roundtrip from Southampton to the Mediterranean, Russia and Scandinavia throughout the summer. The stylish new ship will offer Caribbean sailings from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, beginning this winter.

“We support the environment

by incorporating the most environmentally-friendly equipment on board and utilising ‘green’ practices wherever possible

Kevin Sheehan, chief executive officer, Norwegian Cruise Line

Norwegian Epic Celebrates Earth Day By Supporting Sea Life In celebration of Earth Day on 22 April, 2010, Norwegian Cruise Line has donated $5 for every Norwegian Epic booking made that day to help support a sea turtle release programme run by the Officer Snook Water Pollution Program / Youth Environmental Programs, Inc. Norwegian Epic, the line’s biggest and most innovative Freestyle cruise ship, will feature several environmentallyfriendly features particularly in its heating and cooling, lighting, waste handling, sewage and glazing systems. Included in Kids’ Crew programmes across the fleet, Officer Snook the mascot for its educational programming teaches children of all ages about the importance of clean water, and the effects and prevention of marine pollution. “We support the environment by incorporating the most environmentally-friendly equipment on board and utilising ‘green’ practices wherever possible,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer. “We also try to instill positive environmental habits amongst our young cruisers and Officer Snook has been a great partner that has helped us educate millions of kids.”

Golden Princess Dining Princess Cruises’ chefs are true culinary artists who insist on serving the very finest cuisine - and it shows. The entire fleet has been inducted into the prestigious Chaîne des Rôtisseurs gastronomic society. Each chef’s menu is creative and the selections change every day. Pair that with impeccable service and you’re in for an unforgettable gourmet experience. Golden Princess offers several formal dining rooms in the cruise tradition, with Traditional Dining at the same times for each meal, with attentive service provided by your own waiter throughout the cruise. You could also chose Anytime Dining which means you aren’t limited to eating at a fixed time or place on the ship. Instead, the choice of when and where you want to eat is flexible, based only on the whim of your stomach. The ships’ speciality restaurants are always in high demand and this ship’s options are no exception, serving up exquisite local specialties and gourmet favorites. Reservations are always recommended and a cover charge applies but it is worth every penny! Golden Princess Entertainment To say the nightlife onboard is entertaining is an understatement. The performers are seasoned professionals and their performances are of the same

calibre as what you’d see on a Broadway stage. The theatre productions, lounge acts, movies and casino venues are just some of the fun onboard. The ship’s Hot Spots are just that - sizzling! Golden Princess features dazzling casinos, the Movies Under The Stars outdoor theatre, night clubs, dance floors and more. Whether you’re in the mood for a cozy space to sip cocktails with someone special or a swanky place to savour a cigar and make new friends, Princess ships provide it all. Golden Princess Activities The many activities onboard are designed to stimulate, educate, entertain, inspire and sweat - not necessarily in that order. But, you can be sure staff onboard will do their best to cover all the bases. And from art auctions to virtual golf, this ship is loaded with fun things to do. Sometimes floating serenely just isn’t enough - splash

around, ride the waves, swim against the current or take a dip in one of this ship’s bubbling hot tubs. Activities onboard will keep you on the run, literally, with basketball, paddle tennis, jogging tracks and state-of-the-art gyms equipped with machines that’ll keep your heart rate pumping. Golden Princess Under 18 With Princess, young kids and teens have their own kind of fun - and their own place to hang out. The youth and teen centres are fully equipped with everything from the latest video games and movies, to arts and crafts, football tables, board games and jukeboxes. And for the littlest ones, activities like kids’ karaoke, pizza parties, pajama nights and more. This ship’s activities run the age-appropriate gamut for those under 18 - from Princess Pelicans (ages 3 to 7), and Shockwaves (ages 8-12), to remix (ages 13-17).

If all this appeals to you and you would like to find out more about a cruise onboard Golden Princess, or to book, call one of our Jetline Cruise Specialists now on 0800 082 2156. TO BOOK CALL US ON 0800 082 2156 OR VISIT www.jetlinecruise.com

Cruising from the UK

The No Flight Choice!

Taking a cruise which begins and/ or ends in the UK is undoubtedly one of the most relaxing ways to take a holiday. Without the hassle of flights, no baggage restrictions and beating the jetlag - there is no surprise that these cruises are growing in popularity among British travellers. To Fly or Not To Fly is now often the first consideration when making a decision where to cruise. No flying cruises from the UK make travelling so much easier but can limit your choices of destination within a reasonable holiday period. By opting for flying just one way you can benefit from the best of both worlds with some breathtaking destinations in a more reasonable amount of holiday time you may have available. This edition of Cruise Ahoy is packed with lots of ideas to cut down on or totally cut out flying.

No-fly cruises from only £449pp Southampton is the ‘Cruise Capital’ of the UK and is home to some of the finest cruise lines in the world. The city continues to offer an increasingly varied choice of itineraries as more and more ships are based at arguably the most famous port in the UK. The majority of cruises from Southampton visit the Baltics, the Canary Islands, the Norwegian Fjords and the Mediterranean, although round trip cruises are also available transatlantic to the USA & Caribbean, around Africa or even on a World Cruise! 2010 is shaping up to be another great year in the cruise business with three exciting new ships launching from Southampton. Firstly, Cunard enjoyed the fastest Selling voyage in cruise line history with the October 2010 Maiden Voyage for their new ocean liner Queen Elizabeth, which was placed on worldwide sale to past guests

10

and sold out in a record 29 minutes – easily making this the fastest selling voyage in Cunard’s 170-year history. In fact, this voyage sold out more quickly, involving more guests than QE2’s Final Voyage when it set a previous Cunard sell-out record of 36 minutes in June 2007. P&O Cruises launched their newest super-liner in April 2010 – Azura which is set to deliver a contemporary and sophisticated holiday experience for adults and couples with an emphasis on the highest levels of service and extraordinary attention to detail. Plus, the newest arrivals at Southampton port Celebrity Cruises launch their latest luxury Solstice Class ship – Celebrity Eclipse. Voted by readers of Conde Nast Traveller UK, The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph as Best Cruise Line – accolades which can help to assure passengers of the holiday of a lifetime.

See the Norwegian Fjords with Holland America’s ms Eurodam If the wide variety of cruises on offer from Southampton doesn’t meet your needs, there’s plenty more choice from alternative ports including Dover and Harwich. What better way to start a cruise than to set sail beneath the ‘White Cliffs of Dover’ and the magnificent Dover castle? The Dover Cruise Port has excellent road and rail connections with London and is the perfect UK embarkation port for cruises to the Baltic Capitals, Norway’s North Cape and the fabulous Norwegian fjords. Disney Cruises has returned with their special brand of magic to Europe in 2010 when the Disney Magic will sail roundtrips from Dover on a total of four 12-night cruises to the Northern European Capitals in June and July 2010.

NCL continue to offer their popular ‘freestyle’ informal cruises aboard the Norwegian Sun to the Baltic Capital’s until September 2010. MSC Cruises, who offer a truly Italian experience will run 12-day cruises from Dover as part of an expanded 2010 programme. MSC Opera will operate sailings from the Port of Dover to northern Europe, the Norwegian Fjords and Norway’s North Cape. A two-day stopover in St Petersburg is featured in many of the Italian line’s itineraries. Holland America Line return with their latest premium rated Signature-class ship - Eurodam, following a successful trial last year with three roundtrip cruises to the Baltic, Norwegian Fjords and Scottish Highlands. Harwich International Cruise Port is ideally situated on the UK’s East Coast and along with Southampton and Dover, is one of the leading cruise passenger ports in

Celebrity Solstice

Cruise to the Baltics with NCL the UK with excellent road and rail links with London, the Midlands and the South East. The majority of cruises from Harwich go to Scandinavia and the Baltic’s, the North Cape, Norwegian Fjords, Mediterranean and around Britain. The family friendly and well equipped Royal Caribbean Jewel of the Seas will continue to offer 12 night roundtrip Scandinavia and Russia cruises. Voyages of Discovery will sail from Harwich between the summer months of May to August to the Baltic’s, Norwegian Fjords, Norway’s North Cape and as far a field as Greenland. Plus there are a number of cruises available from local ports of departure such as Greenock, Liverpool, Plymouth, Falmouth and London Tilbury operated by Cruise & Maritime Voyages on the Ocean Countess and the Marco Polo..

Celebrity Solstice

*EXCLUSIVE ON BOARD CREDIT OFFER

Earn upto $75 bonus on board spending money per cabin by adding on prepaid tips to your booking. Take the hassle and the uncertainty away from the end of your cruise; when you book prepaid tips the amount you pay is fixed in £sterling and they are not subject to currency fluctuations as are the US$ amounts expected on board. Also adding prepaid tips when you book gets the cost out of the way and is forgotten by the time you board your ship instead of having to budget for this extra expense at the end of your holiday. By taking advantage of our special offer the cost is reduced when we credit you account on board with up to $75 per cabin on board spending money – this can be spent on anything you wish on board such as drinks, duty free, excursions, jewellery and gifts. The cruises marked in red on the grid below have this offer applicable. Calculate your prepaid tips by multiplying the number of nights on board by £5.87 per person.

Dear Ian I have recently returned from a Far East Princess cruise - Bangkok - Beijing (10/03/10 to 29/03/10) and would like to give Jetline some feedback. Unfortunately, I am not sure whether this should be communicated via yourself or via the booking agent Harley. Anyway, here goes. I would like you to know how delighted we were with the cruise but even more so with the performance of Jetline. Never having booked via an agent before, and having experienced some communication glitches prior to leaving (living in Spain did not help), we did not know what to expect. However, from the moment we arrived in Bangkok to the time we left Beijing everything went so smoothly. The organisation by Jetline was first class and the tours excellent. If we can we would like to give credit to the guides with whom we came into personal contact, ie Joe in Bangkok and Gary in Beijing. We realise that this is not their real names but, in both cases, their efficiency, personality and historical knowledge made the visits to the respective countries memorable. In addition, the hotels in both countries were first class. It is really amazing, we cruised with a top company (and it was good) but have been extolling the virtues of the travel agent more to our friends. We will definitely use Jetline again and will have no hesitation in recommending your services to friends and relatives. Thank you for a great holiday!

SINGLES CRUISING - BY POPULAR DEMAND

SINGLES CRUISING Following popular demand here is our pick of some of the best cruise offers around for single travellers. Having researched the various cruise lines we have found in many cases single travellers would occupy a stateroom usually booked by two people travelling; most modern cruise ships do not incorporate single cabins into their plans. As a result many cruise lines simply double the cruise cost for single cruisers. However some Cruise lines offer single cruise rates which are considerably less than double the regular twin cruise cost. Choose from the following for great value for money: 5 Holland America Westerdam: Caribbean & Key West 12 nights. SEE PAGE 31. Fly direct to Miami and stay for 1 night. Cruise the Caribbean in 5 luxury for 7 nights. Then pick up fully inclusive car hire for a scenic journey to Key West where the USA meets the Caribbean. Stay for 3 nights in the 5* Casa Marina Hotel on Key West. Then drive back to Miami for a direct overnight flight home.

You get to see lots on this holiday with Vancouver, Alaska, San Francisco and San Diego all on board our most popular Celebrity ship the Mercury. The end of Summer (as the season changes) is a good time to visit Alaska with the glaciers having soaked up the warmth of the sun throughout the Summer months making them seem more alive. Plus the wildlife preparing for the Winter ahead gives you the chance to see the wildlife at it most active.

Includes 2 Nights on Board in San Francisco

Staying on board for 2 nights in San Francisco will be an absolute delight as you are in the heart of all the action with great scenery all around. Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf are the next piers along from the Cruise terminal - just a few minutes walk down the Embarcadero. The seafood dishes here are incredible and there are a good range of bars too. You will be able to take some great pictures of the famous Coit Tower and the San Francisco skyline behind it. Hop on a famous Street car to take you over the hill and into the popular shopping area of Union Square. On the other side of the ship take some cool pictures and the chance to visit Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.
