I have stayed immediately over the pub, deck 6, loved it. We had 3 cabins & all of us were happy with our choice & were undoubtedly the best 'inside' cabins I've had on any ship. Noise was not an issue as the entertainer/guitar player normally finished about 11pm ish & we were 'in' the pub not above it at that time. If you've been offered this on a deal, grab it......Wilba .

Liked the promenade cabins but ours was very noisy with clanging noises above at 3am, this was put down to the jacuzzies being heated up !! not sure if this was right but we were upgraded to a balcony cabin and these were even better!! However promenade cabins are better than inside and you cannot hear any of the music/bar noises below!!

We stayed in room number 7311 which is on the seventh floor opposite the Promenade Cafe and it was absoulutely brilliant. We have aready booked up for June 2009 but this time we have booked a outside balcony room because my sister in law is coming with us and we need a bigger room otherwise we would have booked room 7311 again without hesitation!

Benefits range from discount on board to priority booking and exclusive on board benefits. But are they really all its made out to be or are we limiting our options by being loyal.Im going to focus on P&O because they are the most popular but a similar comparison could be made with other cru...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
