Likewise, these areas are used for a lot of reasons and I have never encountered noise from them. ... Neil .

The 'blank' areas could be entrances to the crew staircase, it could be storage for the vacume cleaners, sheets and towels. I have never encountered a noisy blank space.

Thanks to all. Hopefully all will be well. This is our first cruise and we are VERY excited about it.

We are also going on our first cruise ever in August 2009 (14th). On the Brilliance of the Seas and also on deck 8. We are opposite some internal cabins so not worried about empty spaces! Just concerned that we have made the right choice for our 1st cruise with no children in tow.

We are also travelling child-free. We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. I'm not sure whether I would have taken my sons on such a port intensive cruise when they were younger. We too travel in August next year but not until August 26th.

We are booked on the same cruise as yourself. We also sailed on Brilliance last year. Our cabin was next to a storage room where they keep sheets etc. We heard no noice what so ever. You never know we may bump into you on the cruise. I am travelling with my husband and 17 year old son.

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...

A Port guide to Le Havre

By Trevor Smith

Trevor Smith's blog

I’ve done a couple of cruises now that visit Le Havre but on both occasions, I chose to stay on the ship and enjoy the facilities there. Next time I think I will get off and explore, weather permitting. Here is what I missed and what you could do when visiting this lovely French Town.A Taste Of Normandy Unlike the rest of France Normandy is blanketed in apple orchards instead of vineyards. For centuries these apples have been used to make a bubbly fermented cider and distilling that cid...

Her Majesty and I have more in...

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

I love smaller ships, I don’t need a choice of 14 restaurants, multiple bars and lounges, rock climbing walls and ice-skating rinks, if anything it is too much choice and I find you end up flitting from bar to bar all evening, not settling in one place. Give me a Fred Olsen ship with one bar, one lounge and one theatre and I have all I need thank you very much.A couple of years ago I had the chance to visit the Hebridean Princess, the little ship that has been chartered by her Majesty f...
