Mid ship is the best,try not to be over a restaraunt or bar,or beneath a swimming pool. We were on Ruby Princess in November mini suite, dolphin deck D603 & it was perfect.Grand Princess has the same layout I think.Try & go for a balcony if you can,it makes all the difference. It wiil be brilliant & you will be hooked on cruising,have a great time.

If the budget will possibly run to it, have a balcony cabin. It provides you with that little bit of outside space which is "all your own" and will improve your overall cruise experience enormously! Apart from that ,aim for somewhere midships as you will feel any movement of the ship far less. Have a great first cruise----you will no doubt become an addict, like most of us on this site!

I would agree with Setter and Wilson, go for a balcony particularly in the Med during the summer. Lovely to sit out early morning and in the evening with a pre-dinner drink!! Just a point to note, on most Princess ships the balconies on Caribe deck (deck 10) are slightly larger than the other decks. We have had balcony cabins both fore and aft on Princess and have not been troubled unduly by movement, even in fairly rough conditions. Enjoy your cruise. I am sure, as Cynthia says, you will become addicted. Regards.

Hello, I also agree with the previous comments, try to avoid being immediately below the buffet area because they can be noisy during the night when the cleaners are working. Also avoid the cabins next to the laundromat - there is a reason why these are often the last cabins to be booked. Midships is best for new cruisers until you find out how sensitive to motion you are - most people don't notice any movement except on the rare occasions when the sea is very rough. Have a great time.

No single supplements with Fred. Olsen

By Jo Cunningham

Jo Cunningham's blog

 Fred Olsen have just announced their turn of year campaign, with great deals to encourage early bookings and have announced a number of sailings with no single supplement. Fred. Olsen are particularly good for single customers, they have a higher proportion of single passengers than other cruise lines, which makes it easy to mix and make friends. They have a number of single cabins on each ship but these book up early and normally the single supplement on the remaining cabins is just to...
