Have you read my latest blog post about bear watching? Probably one of the best tours I have been on, but only because we saw so many bears 🐻🐻🐻 This is the post for you if you are heading to Alaska in the future on a cruise 🚢 Link in bio or head over to 👉 https://lucywilliamsglobal.com/2018/09/19/where-to-see-bears-in-alaska/ 🐻
Ship in quarantine.
We woke up with the news there was a possible outbreak of norovirus on board AIDAperla. Depending some reports between 30 to 70 guests were reported to show symptoms of the disease and consequently the ship was put under quarantine when it arrived in Rotterdam. The German cruise ship is sailing her weekly Northern European route with stops in Hamburg, Southampton, Le Havre, Zeebrugge and Rotterdam.
While there are many factors that can lead to the outbreak of norovirus, so are the possible ways of minimising the risks. The most important one being proper hygiene. There used to be handsanitising products at the entry of the restaurants, and in fact all over the ship, but since some time cruise lines have cut down on them and installed hand wash stations instead.
Unfortunately we still see a lot of people not sanitising or washing their hands. And what is even more upsetting is when we see those same people touch the food in the buffet.
So come on people, instead of possibly ruining your, or someone else's cruise vacation, WASH YOUR HANDS! It's not that difficult.

I love this little garden under the stairs of Gallery 47 🌱 It just shows how important the little things are when cruising. I'd much rather a smile with my service than a big flashy dinner show and distant staff. Give me a garden under the stairs any day, give me all those little things 😍

It's #marellamonday so here's one of my favourite spaces on the #marelladiscovery . As soon as I saw the decor I fell in love with the Live Room. The funky chairs and promise of live music just reeled me in and I wish I'd had chance to experience her on an evening 😔😭
