Wilba is correct in order for you to establish the prices you need to speak to an agent as the RCI web site can only cope with 4 pax. The Liberty has family cabins which range from insides and outsides upto suites. The insides are usually based on 6 pax but whatever the case is is you can all share the cabin then the first two pay adult fare the 3rd/4th/5th and 6th pay the reduced rate regardless of age. You have two options - see how much one of the family cabins are but alternatively you will sometimes find that you can get 2 gaurantee grade cabins at a really good price but remember that the first two in any cabin pay the full rate. So you would only get a reduction on the 5th person and you would have to make the booking on the basis of 1 adult and 2 children and 1 adult and 1 child but then sort out between you who was going in which cabin. Some of the last minute deals do actually make it cheaper for you to take the two cabins. You really will need to speak to a Travel Agent to get the definitive answer.

The family suites on Freedom Class ships are only bookable via a cruise agent, hence prices are not normally published. Phone the 0800 408 6200 to get a prices on both............Wilba.

I've only been on one cruise so don't take my word as gospel. We're a family of 5 and we were on RCI Navigator of the Seas. We took one of the outside family rooms. They were very large. Two kids slept in bunk beds in a cordoned off area opposite the bathroom. The other slept in the sofa bed. There was a curtain between the sofa bed and the main bed so we could put the kids to bed and then keep the bedise lights on to read. Only slight drawback was the TV was opposite the sofa bed as opposed to the main bed. But the room was large and comfortable. This year we're trying two balcony cabins next to each other on P&O - it will be interesting to see which option is better...

What is the dress code?

By Rosie Taylor

This is a question that comes up quite a lot when deciding which cruise to book.It really does depend on the cruise line.The general rule is 2 formal nights per week.How formal is formal? Well, this is a good question because recently a customer of mine came home from a cruise with Royal Caribbean and even on the formal nights some people where really casual. Trousers and polo shirts. Not even a shirt and tie!It seems that Royal Caribbean have really relaxed the dress code.Celebrity cruises ...

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
