Did not have an obstructed view cabin on Ventura, but our daughter has had 2 on Oceana. One was between lifeboats and the view was ok. the other the only way to see anything was through the lifeboat windows. But at least you know whether it is day or night. Regarding Ventura! We had a lady come up to our table near the breakers bar absolutely red with embarrassment, she had a cabin obstructed by the lifeboats and had gone to change into her swimsuit! Needless to say when she was starkers someone had decided to clean the windows! Obstructed view! We do not think so! So beware!

I am due to go in a restricted view cabin on Island Star in a few weeks, so can write more after that. However, I do know what I was told, which was if you book your cabin specifically to be IN BETWEEN two lifeboats then the restriction will be minimal. This is what I have done, Island charged £30 to book specific cabin, so I will write a review afterwards, I only hope it is not a complete waste of money!

We always book ''fully obstructed'' cabins on the Artemis as only 1/4 of the picture window is blocked--so a good view and plenty of daylight for a ''good'' price.

We travelled on qm2 with an obstructed view and it was fine. we could only see by standing at the rail but it was nice just to have daylight in the cabin but some are more resticted view than others ,have a look on the ships layout plan re the position of the lieboats.

Dont miss your ship.

By Dawn Gardener

For some reason, there seems to be more and more stories of cruise guests missing their ship when in port. I am on several cruise pages via Facebook and have heard this a lot recently where guests comment on how the ship departed leaving guests on shore because they didn’t get back in time. Last year there was the famous you tube video going around of the couple that left their kids on the ship whilst they went on shore and then missed it as it departed from Nassua with her screami...

Happy Monday to everyone! You’ve all heard the saying from Carslberg, “If Carslberg Did………………” Well what if Carlsberg did cruises? Or if you could invent or design your ultimate cruise what would it be like?If I was given control or designing a cruise, my first priority would have to be a rugby pitch! Most cruises if not all have some form of sports court, such as Basketball, football, but what if they had a rugby pitch! Now rugby is...

Well I have just returned from my 5th visit to Eurodisney with my family . Yet again it didn’t disappoint.There was 11 of us in total and we stayed in the Dream Castle just outside the gates and it was great !! We were up at 6.30 every morning and in the parks by 9 am impressingly first in the queue to get in on some days. Even though it was February it was still busy so we needed to fast pass some of the ride which always comes in handy. We were very lucky as we had a few days of glori...
