PG of A - Answered a Question by edmunds (24 Jun 13 11:11)

The fireworks in Madeira on New Year’s Eve are a mere shadow of what they used to be. The recession has really bitten into them. the celebration is due to sail at 22.00 on new year’s eve, but it will stop just outside the harbour along with around 7 other ships, you get a far better view from outside the harbour than you will get if you are moored.

Balconies in the Arctic Wou...

I feel this is because these cruises are for the destination and the clientele tends to be very well travelled.As people cruise more and more, by the third of fourth time- They tend to go for a balcony cabin and it is very hard to go back down to an ocean view or an inside from there.But the point I am ...
