When it comes to the wonders of the world, we immediately think of iconic sights such as the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal, staring up at Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro… But a ship? In 2019, Time magazine voted Celebrity Edge one of the world's Top 100 places to visit.
Given that the country is twice the size of France, it's probably not surprising that most visitors go to the Western Cape, and no further, in South Africa. The beautiful setting of Cape Town, the buzz of the waterfront nightlife, a trip down the Garden Route to the wine region, and then home, country seen.
Q: My 14-year-old daughter has started refusing to go to school. She says she's afraid to leave the house. She sometimes talks to her guidance counsellor. She has always been quite an anxious child, never wanting to leave my side, tantrums before going into school. I often wonder if her birth affected her. She was born premature and was in intensive care for over three weeks. I managed to breastfeed her before she came out of hospital and for months after that too, but I worry it's affected our bonding.
Q. I can't get my ex-girlfriend out of my mind. She broke up with me six months ago and it was my first real relationship. I keep wondering what she's up to and then I spend too much time looking at her on Facebook and Instagram. I'm really angry with myself as I can't move on. I just get so jealous when I see her with other men online. I've turned into this weird stalker. It was my birthday last week and I thought she'd call or at least text me. I was so crushed that she didn't even comment online.
Q: I have decided I really need to see a therapist, but I'm not sure how to know if someone is the right one for me? How do you know what a good therapist is and if they are helping you or not. I was let down by one before who cancelled on me several times and it's taken me a long time to think of trusting another one.
Q. I am still reeling after reading the news about the 'Momo' avatar that appears on young people's phones, threatens them and encourages them to hurt or even kill themselves. It's terrifying and makes me feel so helpless. I already feel clueless about my teenage daughter's social media, apps, etc. How can I start a conversation with her without watching her eyes glaze over?
Q I'M dreading having to spend Christmas with my husband. It's the one time when we don't have our busy careers to keep us distracted. We have been married for 10 years and have been through some pretty tough times. A few years ago, I lost a family member and that has left me feeling dead inside.
Q I'm a 46-year-old man and I'm struggling. I'm married and I love my wife and children, but I often think about not being here. Lately, I have started to imagine ways to end it. The only thing that's keeping me here is the guilt I feel at hurting the people I love most.
Approaching your 30s can be a minefield of emotions — as well as the anticipation of a new decade full of fresh possibilities, there’s also the trepidation of impending wrinkles, a slower metabolism and the seemingly overnight transgression of being physically incapable of wearing stiletto-heels for more than an hour...
Q: Why is there so much talk of sex all the time? Sex is the same as it's always been and humans have always managed to do it enough to keep the population growing. It's not that hard to figure out where the bits go and what to do. In my day, you didn't talk about it and you didn't need to. Maybe all this talking about it is what's causing the problems and maybe the problems aren't worth talking about.
Q. Me and my partner fight about housework all the time. I do way more than him and I resent that, and he says I nag him all the time and he's always got a list of things to do from me. But he goes to the gym, and meets his mates and I often come home from work and if he's home before me, he's just sitting watching TV or on his phone doing nothing. I'm so sick of it and so sick of our fights. He says he's not as fussy as me, so he doesn't see why he should clean to my standards. I'm so fed up. I don't want to have sex with him in a messy house when he's done nothing to tidy up and I've spent two hours after getting home from work cleaning. He thinks I'm withholding sex to punish him and maybe I am. But I just don't fancy him when he's being such so unloving.
Q. I've been separated for two years now and my little boy lives mostly with his mam. He's six now and he's started saying some worrying things. His mother has a live-in partner for the past year and I'm afraid something might be going on. He has started calling his 'willie' (what we usually call it) a 'cock' and he's started calling 'boobies' 'tits'. He seems okay but he says this stuff to me while laughing, as though he knows it's bold. But I'm worried he's trying to tell me something. How can I bring this up? The boyfriend and I don't really talk, but I've an okay relationship with my ex.
Q My ex contacted me a few weeks ago and wants us to date again. We broke up 15 years ago because he punched me. I got a restraining order then and never heard from him again, but I've missed him loads. He says he's worked hard to change and that he's not like that any more. He's being really sweet and romantic, and the sex is amazing. I know I need to be careful, but I've been so lonely. I can't tell anyone who knew him before because they won't understand. How can I get others to see what I see, so I can have him fully in my life again?
QI have a very good relationship with my granddaughter who is 20-yearsold, and she and her friends are mostly sexually active. She told me that it is common for girls in her circle to insist on condom use, only to discover that their male partners have removed the condom at the last minute before sex, without telling them. She said it's a thing that women her age have to worry about now. Have you heard of this? How are women supposed to keep themselves from getting pregnant if this is happening?
Q. I'm happily married for 27 years. I love my man dearly and our sex life is warm and comfortable and loving. But it's always the same. I know I don't try to change it at all so I don't blame my husband for not changing things. I've never thought about being with anyone else and am totally devoted to my marriage, but recently while having sex, flashes of this other man have appeared.
Q I'm 24 and I've never had sex. I've never had a boyfriend for more than a few months because either I end it when I think he's going to want sex, or he ends it because he wants sex and I can't do it. I feel like I'll never be normal and will never have a relationship or family. I'm full of terror about the pain of sex or anything going inside me. I feel like a freak.
