We are booked to go on the Artemis on the 4th July to Norway and are in cabin E219. Does anyone know if that is a good place to be?

And what would you do if the answer came back "no, it's not"? Cancel? That's why it's better not to ask the question in the first place at this late stage. Anyway, I'm sure you'll be fine there - it's along from reception and the Atrium so you'll be close to the "hub" of things. My concern (I'm on the same cruise) is whether or not we complete the itinerary as planned. If you've had an eye on the recent reviews you'll be aware that the Artemis has been experiencing trouble with one of it's engines and it's slower speed has meant missing out or shorter periods at ports of calls. We just need to keep our fingers crossed that it's not a cloudy sky that prevents us experiencing the midnight sun. Every time I sit chatting to someone on board I'll be wondering if I'm talking to McMurray! Regards......Mike.

We were about to book half a world cruise for Feb 2011 and for the first time ever we looked at the feedback and as this engine trouble seems to be ongoing since about last July so we have chickened out and decided to wait for another itinerary we fancy on another ship to come along! Which is a great pity as we really fancied this particular cruise. Don't P&O realise they are losing money and customers by not biting the bullet and paying for the engine to be replaced or repaired properly!!

Thank you for your comments. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the engine faults are rectified in time for a perfect cruise. I wouldn't cancel but just wondered if we were likely to experience noisy engines. I will look out for a Mike!

Might get a bit noisy on a port day, especially if the ship is parked port side on*, otherwise it should be easy to find. *If they haven't fixed the engine by then there won't be so many port days :-(.
