Besides traveling one of my favourite things to do is cook! I’m not a great chef, but I do know how to mix together tasty ingredients from time to time.

While Naples has a lot going for it as a holiday destination, it’s not the ideal port of call on a cruise. There’s just far too much on offer; we had to make a choice from nine ‘excursions’, the most of any port on our cruise.
‘I’d like to take the funicular railway on the Isle of Capri’
‘I’d rather see the ruins of Pompeii’
