We came off the celebration yesterday after a week to the fjords. i noticed a constant vibration, sitting on our toilet was like sitting astride a small motorbike - we were in a deluxe cabin on deck 7. our friends were on deck 4, which they also thought was abit noisy, but that was the neighbours. the ship was groaning abit on our voyage from bergen to olden when the sea was slightly choppier. i would sail on her again for the price.

The ship was initially called the Noordam and entered service in 1984 but it does have only a limited number of double rooms most are twin bedded. Best location is midships and an outside view rather then an inside cabin and as high up as you can afford although on some ships this is not always an extra cost. The reports back from fellow cruisers is they all enjoed the experience. The ship does have a self service launderette.

We have sailed twice on this ship, both times on deck 1 inside. Cabin 888 to the Baltics this August, no problem with noise of any kind. Cabins are perfectly roomy for a couple, ample storage etc. The higher deck you are on the more likely you may feel more movement. Enjoy.

Rocky Mountaineer Part Three

By Alana Mills

Kamloops to Jasper.This morning we left for the station early again as the train was leaving at 7.15am.Today I am experiencing the Silver Leaf Service. The Silver Leaf carriages are a single storey carriage but have large panoramic windows with an additional curved glass panel as the roof curves although the centre of the roof is solid unlike on the Gold Leaf. The windows allow you to see the scenery well so dont worry about missing out.The seats were again spacious and comfortable. They are...

P&O Smarten up the passengers!...

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

No doubt you’ve seen the latest notification from P&O outlining their new Dress Code, and its causing some controversy I can tell you!No more ‘questionable’ slogans or images on clothing, no Fancy Dress – only permitted on ‘Theme Nights’, and only what P&O deem suitable. No Denim, Football shirts after 6pm. This type of outerwear will be confined to your cabins! (No mention of Rugby or other sports?) May need more clarification P&O, as wh...
