You have probably heard that OV is being redeployed to Australia by now. Keep booking and enjoy while you can for there will be few good value cruise holidays left after OV has gone in 09/10.

I did !!!!!!! will write the review in next couple of days. However I loved having the suite A157. Big room about 18' x 13' with same width balcony (not overlooked) which was about 4-5' deep. Huge (6') sofa and a separate armchair with a long coffee table and big square side table with a lamp. Lamps on the bedside drawers. A dressing table the whole depth of the cabin with more drawers. A walk in wardrobe with MORE drawers and a safe, iron, ironing board, lots of hangers. In other words LOADS of storage. The bathroom has a wood floor (like the promenade deck) which is lovely and warm. There is a bath 'cubicle' with a full size bath, whose entrance is covered by a shower curtain. There is also a toilet cubicle with no curtain. Very Good powerful shower. Lots of big mirrors mostly full length. A wooden box with a selection of different tetley teas. Bathrobes and three magazines (Times holiday, Tattler and a men's gadget mag) as well as a large TV with three channels showing Films etc. There IS a club lounge on A deck which I believe is for suites and you receive an envelope with an invitation to view and book. £70 for the lovely lounge across the front of A deck. Free drinks for 2 hours, free internet access all day, continental breakfast with extras and Tea is also served there plus a few other extras. Well worth the money if a hideaway with a lovely quiet ambience, is required !!

We are staying in A157 in December, there will be 4 of us - 2 couples, so the bed settee will be used. Will the room be spacious enough. Also how private are the facilities, is the toilet separate from the bathroom etc. Have been put off a little by criticism about the noise from the deckchairs/loungers from above - did this disturb you? I have cruised twice before with OV but both times on P deck - so know I love the ship and facilities. Booked on a buy 2 get 2 free deal, hence the suite, and all the questions.

Tipping on board cruise ships

By Renee Gagen

Tipping on board cruise ships has always been a problem, many customer’s like to do this, many don’t, I’m a person that doesn’t like to be told how much I should give and who to give it too and is it getting out of control the amount that cruise lines are putting these up by?Many people think it’s just on cruise ship but many holiday destinations you have to tip places so what is the recommended amount that you should tip? I know while I was on Holiday in Goa my ...

The latest technology available in the near v=future on Royal Caribbean is facial recognition. the latest technology is already functioning on Allure of the seas and oasis of the seas and will be found on 13% of the fleet.So what does this mean?It means passengers can now check in really quickly thanks to their pre loaded photo, open their cabin doors without a keycard and a luggage tracker will monitor their bags and send them an alert once the luggage has arrived to the cabin. Is this a ste...

Big News for Celebrity Cruises!!

By Tom Harding

Celebrity earlier this week came out with some very exciting news that the Celebrity Edge will launch earlier than planned, although I understand the disappointment from those that have already booked thinking they had booked the maiden voyages although this seems to becoming more of a thing as both the Harmony and Symphony have done new sailings after announce a sailings, including the Maiden Voyage.The Celebrity Edge was due to come out in December this year, however she will now have five ...
