If you look at the ship layout on the Island Cruises website you can see cabin 7000 is right at the front of the ship so you shouldnt get any noise from passengers as your right at the end of the corridor so no passing traffic. you may get the odd noise from when the ship drops anchor or engines rotating but nothing major. Why dont people look at the websites or do searches for deck plans it would reduce the questions by half.

If you feel like that about answering a question, why bother.

I fully agree with you, after all, as useful as deck plans may be they don't tell you wether or not a particular area is noisy etc. Anyway what is this section of the website for but to answer questions and to help one another politely and in a friendly manner.

Im fully aware of the deck plan is in the brochure but it is not a talking brochure so im unsure if it is noisy due to anchor , engine noise etc if the questions bother you dont reply, this is our first cruise !!!

Can I throw a different spanner into this little skirmish. I am always bemused when people state they have been 'given' or 'allocated' a cabin & then query it's position. You 'choose' a cabin, either face to face or over the telephone, with your TA & with the deck plan in front of you at the time of booking. If your TA doesn't give you that option, then you need to think about a quick exit. Any Cruise Specialist would offer this service as a matter of course. There are obvious exceptions to this: A late booking with Hobsons Choice Or a 'Guarantee Only' basis which means you pay the lowest price & take pot luck. Hope this helps for any future bookings.......Regards Wilba.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year….. Well I think it is. It is so true what they say, Christmas is so much fun when you have children around. My little boy Finley is 2 and a half now and really starting to understand ‘Mr Christmas’ as he calls him. He is fascinated by Christmas trees with all the lights and decorations, it takes ages to pass a shop that has anything remotely Christmassy in it.We have been waiting for a while now for an operation date for Finley ...
