Trying to decide on a UK summer break, considering a centreparcs, possibly Sherwood. Anyone done one? How much are the activities? Is there an alternative that's similar? Ta
Got the grandson coming over from Greece this month and Iíve booked 4 nights at Centre Parcs at Longleat. Prebooked a couple of activities - all the add ons are quite pricey.

John Barnes was at Centre parcs when I went as a kid. He ran past me one day and also his locker was next to mine at the pool. That's kind of my shit claim to fame.

Itís a standing joke. If you want to know when the kids are on holiday check the centre parcs price list. We were lucky in that the wife of our friends worked in house keeping at longleat and we free loaded on the back of her discounts for day passes and and a long weekend at Elveden Forest with them. Very pricy. You must be a rich a Tory bastard then 🤣

I did something totally out of my comfort zone.

Booked a two night break to Albania. First time solo travel. Fuck. Flights and accommodation under £80.

That's the way to do it! Let us know what it's like, I can't do stuff like that any more but I still like to know. I'd guess Tirana is a bit of a weird shit hole, with horrible communist architecture apart from in the old part of town. The people you meet will make the trip anyway. While that can seem a bit daunting, going on your own really helps in that respect. Have fun.

Cruises. We are virgins in that respect and TBH, iĎve conceded to the current Mrs. LL as weíre going back to SA early next year again, probably for the last time.

Back to cruises. Although as mentioned Iíve agreed, there are conditions. Not Mediterranean, likely Caribbean, maybe further afield. I just donít want to be on a floating cesspit with five thousand Wayne and Waynettaís and their chavvy little shits.

No apologies my money, I spend it where I want.

Likely to be 18 months away I accept that but planning is everything when youíre spending circa £6k

Suggestions would be helpful.

I did the Caribbean donkeys years ago - 1 week Barbados, 1 week cruising. Wish I spent the 2 weeks in Barbados. I detested the cruise bit- getting dressed for dinner and all that shite. Itís all probably less formal now but itís not for me.

Barbados is fucking lush, 100% agree. One of the more expensive islands nowadays. As for dress code, yes, things are apparently a lot different, though I suspect you can get from relaxed and informal to formal if you want.

I did a 1-week Caribbean cruise with P&O in February 2023 and only the first night had a dress code of tuxedos/suits. Barbados was probably the best stop. It was my first cruise and I wouldn't do one again; I'm 38 and 95% of the other guests were over 60). It was a 3* room in a floating 5* hotel. I did enjoy the variety of restaurants onboard, and exploring (briefly) all the islands we stopped at. I booked excursions via P&O for almost every stop and they were really good - kayaking mangroves, climbing a mountain, snorkelling with turtles.

You may struggle on the smaller ships but think you would likely be able to get a Celebrity cruise depending on the time of travel. If it's something you are keen on i would always look to get it booked early, of course prices sometimes go down but you find that is usually on the larger ships where as the smaller ones fill up
