Welcome aboard World of Cruising!
It has certainly been a busy couple of months in the wonderful world of cruising, with new ship announcements almost every week. Cunard, Saga and Azamara are just three proud parents who will be christening new arrivals all about them.
It hasn’t all been good news, of course, with hurricanes Irma and Maria bringing devastation to the Caribbean. Our hearts go out to all the people of those islands – and it was good to see so many cruise lines banding together to help the relief effort.
Disasters like this are a stark reminder that travel can be risky, and that no one should ever leave home without good insurance. All policies are NOT the same – especially when it comes to cruising – so turn to page 66 for our guide to the best deals.
Elsewhere in this issue, we take you meandering down the Mekong, around the Adriatic with the (private) jet set on Crystal Esprit – and we reveal what happened when a Sex Pistol went cruising (something I never thought I’d say).
But wherever you go and whatever you do this month, I wish you happy – and safe – cruising.
