We have had a Sky suite each time we have cruised with Celebrity and would not dream of selecting an inside cabin instead----for all the reasons already stated plus the fact that the scenery on a Baltic cruise is so beautiful. why on earth would you NOT want to sit out on your balcony, sipping a glass of something cool and preferably "alcofrolic" whilst viewing the islands of Stockholm or whatever other port you may be sailing from that day..Go for Neil's so delightfully described cupboard with a bed if you must-----but I bet you will regret it!!Cynthia.

I'm sure you will get a few differing views on inside positions, I prefer the nearest to the Main Dining Room, nearest the lift/stairs, which puts me in a vertical line with the rest of the eateries. The other advantage of an inside is there's no daylight to spoil an afternoon 'nap'. Regards .

As I said to the man on the roof only yesterday, "Don't do it". I cannot believe that you were so disappointed with a Sky Suite that you are even contemplating a cupboard with a bed. No, I know they are not that bad but to wake in the morning and be able to read the news with a cup of coffee on the balcony and feel the warmth of the sun and glory in the smell of the sea and the beautiful early morning light, just listen to the water swishing past...Oh I can hear it now and you want to wake up to a guarded florescent light and someone stumping around on the deck above you, with the air conditioning trying to cleanse the air for the fourth time and as Wilba so daintily puts it "no daylight to spoil an afternoon 'nap'", saints preserve us. Oh! the man on the roof was ok he was just adjusting his aerial. Regards.... Neil.

On The Constellation in March we had a Concierge Cabin which has spoilt us for anything less. It was a Caribbean cruise & how I enjoyed breakfast on the balcony every single morning. We were on Sky Deck in 9020 & had a very helpful steward. The extra £200 for the CC cabin was well worth it for the size & the extras like the Champagne on ice, the fruit & flowers every day. Next year we are cruising the Transatlantic, again on Contellation, sailing in April from Fort Lauderdale, again in a CC cabin. I'd advise you to have the luxury for that little extra cost.

I visited Cuba recently and had an amazing experience. The people, the way of life and culture. I learned a lot of it’s history, more than just what I would have learned at school. It was very interesting to see at first hand what life is like there.Being on an escorted tour I was able to see the real Cuba. Not just a few nights in Havana and then spending the rest of our time on a beach. I visited Cuba in-land, I saw the farms, the tobacco and coffee plants and just how the real people...

Over the years you may have read my blogs about my friend John who has been wrongly imprisoned in India. His ordeal started back in 2013 when he, along with 35 other crew members were arrested and imprisoned for fire arms offences whilst serving as anti piracy guards off the India coast.After 6 months in Jail the case against them was dropped when it was proven the men did have all the correct paper work and no offences had been committed. However, the India authorities refused to give them b...
