I have been asked on the viability of a Cruise again later in the year. We have found one from Malaga on the 6th November to Casablanca and Tangier returning to Malaga on the 10th November. I believe it is on the same ship we Cruised on last year, we all found it very enjoyable and were treated very well by all the staff.

The price of the Cruise is as follows :

369 Euros per person for a Superior Interior Cabin

399 Euros per person for an Exterior Cabin

449 Euros per person for a Superior Exterior Cabin

This price gives you All Inclusive (Drinks, Meals, Taxes, Gratuities)

I will not be booking for Probus, but if you wish to come then the booking agent is Cruise Market on 951 571 387, or e-mail on We found John very helpful and answered any questions we had.

We would suggest if you do book, you ask for Deck 10.

It would be nice to have a good crowd and if that is the case I would need to know so that we can arrange seating in the dining room for the evening meal at 7.30pm.

If you have any queries then feel free to ask myself or Alan Payne.

New French driving law requiring drivers to carry a breathalyser has been postponed indefinitely

The enforcement of the law making it compulsory to carry breathalysers whilst driving in France has been postponed indefinitely. Whilst the law itself is still in place the authorities have recognised problems with the supply of suitable breathalysers and will not issue fines until further notice. We continue to recommend that you still carry breathalysers and we will inform passengers as soon as we know of a date for the re-introduction of the fines.

Don't forget to ask Alan if you have not yet received a Probus pin.
