Don’t groan, but we’re off on holiday again next week. You see, I’m great at finding a cheap break.

We’re doing seven nights on P&O’s Oriana down to Portugal – and it might surprise you to know that it’s costing just £84 a night all-inclusive.

After our first cruise last summer, we’re totally converted. It’s certainly not the preserve of the old or the rich any more.

I can’t wait to sample Oriana, she’s truly beautiful. Designed to replace the old Canberra, she’s a proper cruise ship.

With her elegant lines and tiered teak decks at the stern, she’s the last in a long distinguished line, nothing like today’s floating hotel blocks of today.
