I have cruised on the 0ceana and the Arcadia a number of times and have always felt the temperature very pleasant. Your cabin is air-conditioned as is the rest of the ship. When in the Med or Caribbean i take a wrap or little lacey cardigan just in case, but have only used them once in the theatre. 0n the Arcadia this March on the Panama Canal Cruise i was walking on deck in the early morning hours with just a sleeveless dress and it was lovely and warm. Hope this is of help enjoy your cruise feel sure you will and like us you will become hooked-we have booked another two for this year. By the way the 0ceana is a great ship and my favourite.

As the ship is air conditioned, in July it will probably strike you as quite cool when you enter the ship after being outside. The temperature in your cabin can be adjusted to your personal preference (though the steward may well turn it down again when he cleans your cabin)! The ship as a whole will be on the cool side. When in the Caribbean it can be like going from a fridge to and oven, and vice virca! Happy cruising.

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...
