Just back from Artemis' New Year cruise. I'm not sure if you mean ballroom dancing or disco. There is a ballroom dance floor but its not big. I'm not a dancer but we looked in there once and it seemed crowded with a dozen couples of on, although to be fair they all seemed to be having fun. The evening entertainment got going after first sitting dinner and went through till there was no one left in the disco.

Thank you 'Wigan & Wilder' We enjoy Ballroom, Salsa and disco but also like to continue enjoying our evening into the early hours and have found that some P & O ships tend to wind things down after 12.30 am, unless, like on the Ventura this Christmas, you could have the pleasure of spending the latter part of the evening with drunken teenagers. So sounds like the Artemis may fit the bill. Thanks once again.

Dance floor last xmas was small and round [which helps] with a smaller circle up a couple of stairs. 'dj' tended to put on what was most popular with dancers i.e. ballroom and some sequence, depends who is getting up. We enjpyed it.Disco type dancing is mainly in Horizon lounge up top. We tended to be in bed by 11.00 so can't help further. I think there were some classes up in horizon during the day. Like the Artemis, we will shortly be off on our third cruise on her, but perhaps we are older than you 70's and 80's.

The week flew by for him, although not so much for my wife who became his twitter stalker!He visited San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, Death Valley (as shown in the pic), Las Vegas, The Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and Los Angeles….yes ...

GratuitiesTo Pay or not to pay??

By Meghan Line

Meghan Line's blog

I am often asked about my own personal thoughts on paying the Gratuities/tips on board the cruise ships. To be honest whenever I have been on holiday and received excellent service in a hotel or a restaurant I always leave a tip. I have had times that we have declined to leave a tip as we felt the service was not what we had expected.Cruise ship staff work exceptionally hard on board to ensure all guests receive a high standard of service and in return appreciate any gratuities which reward ...
