Avoid the older ships, keep as central as you can and not book the decks under the pool deck or the dance floors. Refits have very little to do with the noise and vibration unless it's to have it's bearings renewed. Avoid Oriana and Galaxy they both vibrate a lot I've seen crockery move across the table on Oriana regards Neil .

In our experience the vibration is felt most at the rear of the ship so we always choose a cabin just forward of midships (less movement in the middle!) and as high up as you can afford...Not all the ships are modern but that doesn't mean they are no good....we went on Emerald a couple of years ago which is about 40 years old and although she was a bit dated in style, she was very comfortable and our cabin was very spacious. We have also been on Costa Serena which is a year old and found the style garish and brash (although our cabin was comfortable and spacious)....modern is not necessarily the sign of a good cruise ship we've found!!!

It Is an going problem, hygiene on board!

In this day and age it is a sad problem for basic hygiene!It is not something you like to talk about, but were a bunch of germ-laden conveyors of infectious diseases. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to know the s those people you see tr...

I find it hard to believe that given the amount of family friendly cruise options around these days, all of which include swimming pools, some even large scale on board water parks that it’s not compulsory for cruise companies to employ lifeguards, especially when you consider some of the recent tragedies that have occurred.Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that it will be joining Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines in employing certified lifeguards at all of the family pools acr...
