All cabins have air conditioning which is adjustable in the cabin (your cabin steward will help you with this should you be unable to work it out)....there will be an electricity point for hair tongs but you will need an adaptor as it will be a two round pin socket i.e. normal european socket...although we noticed our tv was plugged into a british type 3 pin socket on the Celebration!

Going Thomson next month, but on Spirit, to Red Sea. Thomson make no mention of tea/coffee in cabin - d'you think the plug will be ok if we took a kettle? Been told theres free tea/coffee at various places 24/7, but for morning coffee in bed we're both too selfish & bone-idle to pad up the corridor, and anyway I'm not a pretty sight that time of day and would possibly frighten the crew. Be grateful for any suggestions, ta. Chris.

No there is no kettle in the cabin and you're not supposed to use a kettle yourself because of the fire risk...having said that we always used to take a kettle and hide it in the wardrobe when not in use ..but we don't bother now as it uses up precious space in the suitcase!! and it really hasn't been a problem getting tea/coffee and bringing it back to the cabin we take it in turns to slip on shorts and vest and go and fetch it...doesn't matter what you look like, you're on holiday for goodness sake!!!!! We've done Red Sea Magic twice and also the repositioning from Palma to Sharm el Sheik and loved every minute of it...there are some amazing sights to see!!

Many thanks. Points taken, but don't need to pack a sunbed for this one, so just might make space for a kettle! Looking forward to it - a bit different from our usual sun & sand cruises. Cant believe I said that - Egypt/Jordan/sand - but you know what I mean. Thanks again. Chris .

There are always people who want to 'break the rules.' The ban on electrical appliances is there for safety reasons. I would not want to be on a ship where thoughtless people think they can bend the rules and possibly endanger the lives of hundreds of other people because they are too idle to get out of bed.

Hi the Celebration cabins are air conditioned and have elctrical sockets. We used them to charge up our phones.

I don't think you ought to risk going on a ship at all, if it takes you over a year to wake up LOL.

Last weekend I completed in the London Moonwalk – what an amazing but very emotional experience. Our group The Girls from the Ditch meet at 5pm where we had arranged for a mini bus to take us all down to London. We had to be in Clapham Common for 9pm so we had plenty of time to get down there. The day didnt quite go to plan for my sister who was joining me on the walk, her Grandson decided to come 2 weeks early and arrived at 2.30 in the afternoon, so after being up since 4.30 Sa...
