Waites - Answered a Question by scott (06 Mar 08 14:50)

I am sure the 14th feb answer will assist. But if you have dificulty in logging on, the short answer is Yes to both enquiries. Dressing gowns and slippers are provided. The former will be changed regularly, if not every day, the latter are usually taken home as a 'souvenier'. A service charge will be added to your onboard spend account on a daily basis, relating to your cabin category. Most people give 'favourites' (cabin Stewards/ table Waiters)a little extra at end of cruise) If you hav'nt been already, enjoy!

Hi the earlier answers are not quite correct. as a seasoned qm2 traveller, please let me be of assistance. you will get dressing gown and slippers (the gown is not changed everyday, just at the end of the voyage for new passengers. whatever you do, don't be tempted to steal it as they will add the cost to your final bill, however you may purchase them for $55 each.) You can refrain from tipping (We did as this can add quite a bit to your final bill. in order to do this, once settled into your cabin (and definintly on your first day on aboard) go to the pursers office and ask to be removed from the tips and gratuities programme. we did this with no questions asked and it took less than a minute. we like to tip individual service at the end of the cruise, plus you get charged 3.75% on top of drinks etc anyway. in your state room you will also get towels for use in your cabin and some for taking ashore so you don't need to take any from home, so saving you space in your suitcase for more shopping! too be honest, you will get the same level of service whatever grade you stay in. enjoy your holiday and i hope i have helped.

Is River Cruising Accessible?

By Hannah Wilson

Quite simply, River Cruising is my passion, my favourite type of cruise. i have been lucky enough to do five river cruises to date and the next one can’t come soon enough. Top of my river cruising bucket list has to be the Mekong, gliding through Vietnam and Cambodia – one day I hope!You would think that river cruising would be perfect for people with limited mobility, smaller ships with less passengers on, only three decks etc, but is river cruising really ideal for wheelchair an...

It seems to me these days that people spend so much time moaning and whingeing about this and that, nothing works like it should and nothing is ever good enough, I thought it nice to share the thoughts of this refreshingly positive chap recently stranded on the NCL Star out in Australia.Francis Lahue and his wife were passengers of the Norwegian Star as it faced engine problems last Friday morning after leaving port. The luxury cruise ship was forced to bob without direction 30km off the coas...

So this week marks the Japan week promoting various different cruise lines that are incorporating a stay and cruise, with new 2018 itineraries now in place.So why is Japan a top destination in 2017 – Here’s what my colleague Holly had to say.“Japan had proved to be a top destination for 2017 and is already in demand for 2018 so why is this the case?
