Hi thanks for your comments but I dont think the stateroom that we have is 192sq.ft (wish it was) I understand it is only 140 sq ft, but hope I`m wrong.

Http://travel.travelocity.com/ecruise/ShipDetailsDeck.do?shipId=62 You can see you are 2nd from the end of the line, with a slightly longer walk to the lift.

Thanks for the feedback so far, has anyone had a bad experience with a guarantee stateroom and were you able to change it, are there many out there who have had one themselfs? The reason I am a little concerned about the location ( and being quite a way from a lift) is because I have MS and at the time of booking there were no available disabled staterooms anywhere on the ship so for cost reasons I had to book a guarantee veranda ( with my fingers crossed ) mainly for the extra space, now I`m not so sure, any thoughts on this.

No obstructed view and a good cabin. The lifts are only 10 cabin widths away so even with MS you should manage ok, you are within a short distance up and down from the cafeteria and the main dining rooms and the lovely Crystal room and the popular Rendezvous Lounge. The only down side is that you are not facing the sun, it will fall on the other side and you might get a little bit more movement than elsewhere. There are certainly worse cabins in that class. I think that you will be very happy in it and I wish you a smooth cruise. .... Neil.

Thanks Neil that makes me feel a lot happier, for the record though could you enlighten me as to which cabins in that class I should try to avoid for future ref. Thanks again for your advice.

There aren't too many on Century because you have no pool deck or heavily utilised areas above you there but strangely enough the ones you would have favoured i.e. those immediately by the lifts as that area can be noisy at times with people saying goodnight after a good night or just general traffic. Hope that helps . .. Neil.

Last weekend I completed in the London Moonwalk – what an amazing but very emotional experience. Our group The Girls from the Ditch meet at 5pm where we had arranged for a mini bus to take us all down to London. We had to be in Clapham Common for 9pm so we had plenty of time to get down there. The day didnt quite go to plan for my sister who was joining me on the walk, her Grandson decided to come 2 weeks early and arrived at 2.30 in the afternoon, so after being up since 4.30 Sa...
