We have done a number of Caribbean Cruises in Jan/Feb/Mar including a least one in a Cabin overlooking the stern of the ship and have never had any problems with sea conditions.Only one very small problem cabins overlooking the stern can get hot as they do not enjoy the flow of air which you can get in cabins on the side of the ship.Regarding being seasick you can purchase 'Sturgeon Tablets from any High st Chemist they are quite effective . Injections are also available onboard [at a cost]. We have been on Oceana a few times and she is a lovely ship perhaps a little more laid back than say Aurora.You will Luv it .JohnT.

John has summed it up very well, I would only add that even if you hit a squall in the Caribbean it seldom amounts to much and it is probably the best place to be at that time of the year, so stop thinking about sea sickness and look forward to a brilliant experience, trust me. ......Neil.

The minisuites at the rear of Oceana are my most favourite cabins on any ship. Which deck are you on? The ones on C deck are the largest. The layout of these cabins is different from the midship minis - the balconies are much larger and we love the interior too, much more room. We have been in the Caribbean in January and February and have always had fantastic weather. You may get the occasional tropical rainstorm (we've always had one in St. Lucia) but they are over very quickly. Lots of people talk about movement at the stern of the ship but the only time we ever felt any was when we came into dock when they used the thrusters - we did not find this a problem. We have had C deck aft minis on Oceana and Adonia when she was with P&O and have booked one for our Panama Canal trip in 2010 - long way away I know but can still look forward to it. Oceana is a lovely ship for the Caribbean, I'm sure you'll have a fantastic time. Do ask if you want to know anything else.

Is River Cruising Accessible?

By Hannah Wilson

Quite simply, River Cruising is my passion, my favourite type of cruise. i have been lucky enough to do five river cruises to date and the next one can’t come soon enough. Top of my river cruising bucket list has to be the Mekong, gliding through Vietnam and Cambodia – one day I hope!You would think that river cruising would be perfect for people with limited mobility, smaller ships with less passengers on, only three decks etc, but is river cruising really ideal for wheelchair an...

Mini Cruise ? Taster Cruise.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cruise Companies do offer itineraries for less than 7 nights. Some call them mini cruise, some taster but whatever you call them do not think they are a waste of time. For the new to cruise market this can be an amazing experience to sample the whole experience. For the seasoned cruisers who may have less time to spare these too will fit the bill.Now any duration shorter than a week cannot offer much variety of ports, however with a bit of planning you can get the most from a short visit. The...

Women Only Cruising: Sexist or Smart?

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

So I read a really interesting article recently about a tour company that is poised to start running Women Only Cruising.At first I thought, what a great idea, why should women be subjected to our bloke-ish ways on their holidays, and if the shoe was on the other foot and if the article read Men Only Cruising, i’d be thinking yeah that sounds like great fun, no screeching women, crying, nagging, handbags everywhere etc ………Oh no wait, I wouldn’t say that, because ...
