Hi getting a balcony makes a cruise if you can run to it. Beware the thetre normally at the front of the ship. so often level 6 is too close and noise can be heard. on ncl beware of the basket ball courts and other top deck noise so in the middle and in the middle is good often quiet deck above and shops below! if you can get near a better class of cabin then the one you are picking do. the better class of cabin gets the best position. look on the ship map and if possible get away from inside cabins. we have cruised on ncl carnival and celbrit.

Normally P&O would release their programme for the coming year in March / April time (May at one time I recall). The new Programme or brochure would normally be for Sailings April to end of March (so this launch following the traditional path would normally be April 18 to March 19 for instance).BUT there has been a dramatic change to them whereby they ac...

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...
