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.

Five Of My Favourites !

By Camilla Edwards

Well its very nearly Christmas and all I wish for now is some snow! Walking the dog this morning everywhere was frosty and white, made me really feel in the festive spirit. One of the best things personally at this time of the year is the food and celebrations associated with Christmas and New Year, so this week I have decided to blog about 5 of my favourite places to eat. Some on cruise ships, some not.Fed Olsen Balmoral. I always enjoy the food on Fred`s ships and Balmoral last year was no...

My final update on my recent trip on Independance of the seas is all about my dining experience.I can honestly say I was not disappointed with one meal I had.You can literally eat 24 hours a day. The group was on second sitting which was 8.30 in the main dining room The Romeo and Juliet. The choice in there was great something for everyone and the staff were very attentive and gave us their recommendations at every meal.Also in here you can have A la Carte Breakfast from 7.30am to 9.30am an...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
