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.

What Jane failed to show/mention

By Kerry James

I have been watching this series of Cruising with Jane McDonald (Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 5), and thought that when she was on MSC and Viking she did show more of the ship to the watcher/cruiser which I did think was lacking in the first series.I was surprised MSC had them back on as in the first series she didnt really show of the MSC Divina but was pleased to see that she was showing the newest ship in the fleet – MSC Meraviglia (at the moment until the MSC Seaside and MSC Seav...

Ciao I am Sailing

By Frankie Bond

Frankie Bond's blog

As you read this I will have started my own holiday – and yes you have guessed it I am off on a cruise…Firstly I will be spending 3 nights in the Mestre area of Venice to explore this beautiful city which I must admit to having never been to before (other than landing at the airport for a transfer to Trieste in April) I am looking forward to strolling around the beautiful streets, stopping for an ice-cream or a coffee in a lovely square and also to exploring the waterways of Veni...

Ryanair are a joke!

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

Well you have read the news. Ryanair are planning to cancel 40-50 flights a day…..yes A DAY because they have messed up their pilots holiday rota’s!!! I thought Michael O’Leary’s hair brained idea of ‘low cost standing room only on his flights’ was nonsense but I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard this news. Firstly are all their pilots taking holiday in Sept-Oct ? Is there a cheap deal we don’t know about and all the staff at Ryanair are...
