Bob Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Anderson (08 Dec 08 19:50)

I think it is because most cruisers are American and the temperature that they seem to expect in other places and sometimes their own homes is lower than we would expect but the ships oblige. Remember that each cabin has a thermostat and it works well. We use ours so that the cabin is at the temperature that we like. The cabin stewards will adjust it sometimes and if they do just tell them not to touch. ..... Neil.

It's easier for people to put additional clothing on than walk around the ship naked I guess...although on a serious note they have to circulate air on the ship I guess as a fairly sealed unit it would get hot fast in there otherwise.

When we were on Serenade of the Seas, Brian their assistant Cruise Director told us that the reason cruise ships maintain a chilly temperature is to help keep any possible instances of the dreaded NoroVirus suppressed. Makes sense. I'd rather have chilly temperatures than an outbreak!

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...

The luxury cruise ship was forced to bob without direction 30km off the coas...

Ships Collide !

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

Watch this video on YouTube.I was shocked earlier this week to read a story of the new Seabourn Encore ship colliding with another ship.It turns out that the collision was minor and thankfully no-one was hurt but what left me wondering was how something like this could happen in the first place.The new ship was docked in Timaru, New Zealand at the time and was actually delayed in departure due to the strong winds there. The ship ended up breaking it’s moorings due to the strong winds an...
