The person is asking a valid question and I would imagine has not cruised before so I find this reply unhelpful and insulting and could possibly put the poster off from asking other cruise orientated questions. Very childish.

I disagree - the OP asked - and I answered his question exactly. Another prime example of people not thinking before they post (and you can read Neil Down's post on the same topic a few rows below this one) - Mr Williamson should have given some more detail such as dates, budget, length of cruise, itinerary and other useful things that could have helped us point him to some possible ships and dates. As it is, his question has been answered perfectly.

Firstly, I am not a 'Mr' I am a 'Miss', therefore 'her' not 'him'. May be you could have suggested some of the cruise lines that have such cabins, or simply asked me to provide a little more information so that I could aid you in pointing me in the right direction. Why bother wasting yours and my time by putting that? You may lead the type of 'lifestyle' that allows you to spend time posting pointless 'answers' to people asking genuine questions, but I'm sure that other people similar to myself would appreciate if you didn't bother in future. Leave it to people who genuinely want to help people chose the right cruise for them, as that is the point of this section of the website, is it not?

Actually Mr Aldrich is one of the pillars of this website - his answers are always informative and knowledgable, and I have read many replies thanking him for his invaluable information - so telling him not to bother posting answers would cause a lot of people to miss out. I assume that you have only just discovered this site, otherwise you would know that the regular answer providers, like Aldrich, Wilba and the Down Family, are getting sick and tired of people posting incoherent one liners from which they are meant to interpretate what the underlying question really is. Yes, we can call be a bit flippant and sarcastic when the mood takes us. Yours was, unfortunately another example where you did not clearly elucidate what you were thinking. Please bear this in mind for future posts, and I think that perhaps once you have become a regular reader of this site, you may realise that you owe Mr Aldrich an apology...?

Thank you! Was it even worth 'a, n' wasting his/her time replying? Saturdays must be so interesting in their house! I have cruised once before as a child, and am now looking to go as an adult with children. I have been looking around but all web sites say maximum cabin passengers exceeded. Thank you for taking the time to post your opinion of the reply.

I think your best bet would be to phone the www.CRUISE.co.uk telephone number at the top of this page and discuss it with them. They are experts and should be able to advise you on what is available. It may mean that you have to pay for such a high grade of cabin that it would be cheaper to book two cheaper cabins, with (officially) one adult in each, possibly interconnecting.

Royal Caribbean have cabins for more than four guests but it says on the website that you should contact them directly for a quote as their online quotes are for a maximum of four guests. I'm sure many other cruiselines will be the same.

Friendliest Countries in the World

By Zara Kelly

The inspiration for this blog comes from some clients who are travelling to Sri Lanka on holiday this year. I visited the pearl in the Indian Ocean a few years ago, and was blown away by how friendly the country is happy to chat to strangers about spices through to cricket, a passion there!I think speaking to locals give you a real insight into the destination. Other than Sri Lanka, the friendliest place I have been to is Japan, where people will literally stop you in the street if you look ...

Fred Olsen have long been one of my favourite cruise lines, Braemar was the first ship I ever did a ” proper cruise”. When I say proper I mean not a mini cruise or ship visit as it was a 14 night Canary Islands sailing.In the last couple of years Braemar has been one of the lines ships that have started to do river cruising. Although in reality it is not really totally river cruising as the ships have been sailing from a UK port – Dover or Southampton.German Waterways sails ...
