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.

Do you need protection?

By Barbara Hopley

You may think ‘What is she on about?’Well let me explain….I have friends, family & even some customers who book their own holidays online then something goes wrong and what do they do – come to me for advice or help.I will help anyone but as a Travel Agent this is the worst thing that can happen as firstly, they didn’t book with me, secondly, they then want my help to sort out whatever issue there is.I can give so many examples of this, so here are a few:-Boo...

Ships Collide !

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

Watch this video on YouTube.I was shocked earlier this week to read a story of the new Seabourn Encore ship colliding with another ship.It turns out that the collision was minor and thankfully no-one was hurt but what left me wondering was how something like this could happen in the first place.The new ship was docked in Timaru, New Zealand at the time and was actually delayed in departure due to the strong winds there. The ship ended up breaking it’s moorings due to the strong winds an...

Brilliant News For Solo Travellers!

By Michelle Fennelly

Michelle Fennelly's blog

As a single traveller the majority of cruise liners will charge at least 100% supplement on a twin berth cabin for sole occupancy; this is actually double the price which in my view it is just ridiculous. It isnt fair and its not acceptable and its about time most cruise liners understood that a lot of their guests do travel alone.Well my good news is that Fred Olsen are doing special offers for solo travellers, eventually a cruise liner that has listened to their guests.The deal Fred Olsen a...
