At the end of November 2014, just in time for her Christmas and New Year cruise, Aurora will spend around 20 nights in dry dock in Hamburg.

The Glass House is considered a stylish and informal haven, somewhere to relax and enjoy the marvellous selection of wines.

If you have experienced and enjoyed Freedom Dining on board a P&O Cruise, you'll be happy to hear that Freedom Dining is being introduced to the Medina Restaurant along with more tables of two.

The Cruise Village British Travel Awards 2013 Nomination

The Cruise Village are proud to announce that we have been nominated for the "Best Travel Retailer for Customer Service" award at the prestigious 2013 British Travel Awards.

This is a great honour and a credit to my team, some of whom have been with the family business over 30 years. To be short listed alongside some of the UK's biggest household names is testament to our focus on customer service and the huge investment we have made for our customers. 

Customer care and personal service is sadly lacking in many businesses nowadays, yet it is the single biggest factor in the ability to maintain existing clients and to attract new customers. It is something that I personally will not compromise and I am so pleased that my business has been recognized in this way. I am also proud to be Blackpool born and bred and to put Blackpool on the map through my business. 

I just need people to vote for us now! You can register your vote by clicking here. Hopefully we will make the final three and bring a national travel award back to the Seaside."
