Why haven't you been given a room #? Is it a guarentee cabin - if so that means you will get any balcony on the ship and cannot dictate location near lifts (not near lifts etc). E3 is the lead in balcony price - the majority of those on deck 7 are classed as having a minor OBV- it is just the awnings that cover the lifeboats which stick out about 10ft - it is below feet level and personally I wouldn't even class it as an OBV myself.

Most of the cabins on Jewel are the same size and perfectly adequate, I also agree with all that A of N says. If you go to the Royal Caribbean Cruises web-site you will be able to see the cabin and the general layout. If you are worried I would stop because there are very few complaints about cabins on Radiance Class ships. .... Neil.

If you want to know what to do in each port please go to this site that I direct every one to - go to google and type 'cruise ports call boards' - click on the the first result will give you all the info under the appropriate PORTS section on the page under Europe. Once you sign up you can search within each specific category. As you are going to St P I cannot recommend using a private tour guide enough instead of 'following the lollypop'. Personally I used alla-tour.com and cannot recommend her highly enough. $225pp for 2-full days of private tours with just 9 others, early entry into Hermitage, lunch at Stolle, private airconditioned Mercedes van - it was fantastic!

Unless you purchased a cabin on a 'guarantee only' basis you do not get 'given' a cabin, you 'choose' a cabin in consultation with your travel agent & the deck plan. If this was not the case I suggest you look for a new agent for your next cruise. ......Wilba .

Traditional or Freestyle ? Whi...

By Camilla Edwards

Carnival`s decision to introduce a new rule of traditional diners on their ships made me think of the whole subject of when, where and with whom do you choose to dine on your cruise. On board Carnival Glory and Carnival Conquest passengers who opt for first or second sitting traditional dining will be turned away from the restaurant if they are more than 30 minutes late for their selected seating. So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...

Most of you will know I already have two wonderful children, Aimee and Rafe.They’re currently 9 (Aimee will be 10 in September) and 6.But I’m about to join the difficulties of finding 5 berth cabins! Baby number 3 is on it’s way!!Baby is due around mid January (although we’re sure he or she will be late and will come on Rafe’s birthday on 20th January).Being 35 means I’m classed as ‘higher risk’ due to my age (I’m not THAT old, am I??) bu...

One Stop Shop !

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...
