Written by Paul Rollason
Now that President Mursi has been sworn in the first democratically elected head of state in Egypt’s history, we can now look forward to a long period of stability. The Red Sea resorts of Sharm el Sheikh, Taba Heights, Soma Bay and Port Ghalib all have hotels offering excellent value over the summer period and beyond. Even deluxe five star resorts have fine offers available for the time being anyway.

Good Reports from Greece

Written by Paul Rollason
Just analysing feedback from customers who have returned from holidays on the Greek Islands in May. I am pleased to report that all customers were delighted with the reception they received from the local people and staff in the hotels. The locals seemed to really appreciate the UK holidaymakers were still travelling to Greece. Prices were reported as cheaper than last year, the main difference was that the resorts are quieter - which isn't such a bad thing!

Costa Concordia Disaster

Written by Paul Rollason
A fascinating programme on Channel 4 last night investigating the events that led to the disaster, including many eyewitness accounts. There are extraordinary scenes showing the crew instructing passengers to return to their cabins, as it must have been clear to all that the ship was sinking. Only after a delay of an hour was the order given to abandon ship, a process which was to take a further 8 hours until 5a.m.  In the meantime Captain Schettino was in a lifeboat before midnight. As in the case of the sinking of the Titanic, 50% of the lifeboats were unusable…

Costa Concordia Disaster

Written by Paul Rollason
Its nearly two weeks now since we saw the first television footage of the stricken Costa Concordia cruise liner capsized after striking a rock off the island of Giglio. This was followed by unforgettable images taken during the evacuation at nighttime showing hundreds of passengers on the side of the capsized ship making their way to lifeboats. Tragedy led to farce as details of Captain Francesco Schettino behaviour emerged. He allegedly delayed calling an emergency for nearly on hour after the ship began to sink, he and his senior officers managed to secure a lifeboat and made their way to…
