PG of A - Answered a Question by fay (13 Mar 12 21:48)

PG of A here, Wilba has answered the question to his usual impeccable standards. All I can add are you will love it, Celebrity ships are head and shoulders above all other large cruise ships out there. The only one that approaches them is Queens Grill on the QM", you will however pay three times as much for a very similar suite. I have sailed 5 times with Cunard all in Queens Grill and personally it really is not as good as Celebrity. You may well ask why I cruise with Cunard why not stick to Celebrity, quite simple we do not fly and Celebrity ships are only based in the UK from May to October so if we want a cruise outside those times then it has to be Cunard - P&O is NOT an option for us. Enjoy, I am certain you will.

I would say all Celebrity ships are suitable for 'seniors', I'm one myself, but the Solstice ships DO have some obstructed view balcony's on deck 6...........wilba.

PG of A has hit it on the head when he says "large ship" If you would prefer the intimacy of a smaller ship and are able to fly (with or without the help of a plane) I would consider Azamara - part of the Celebrity family. In my opiinion the standards are slightly higher but it does lack some of the glitz. I would not consider Cunard (unless I could afford Grill Class) and I too would avoid P&O.

Just to add that some people would be more than happy without Grill Class on the Q.M2, as we were last August, couldnt fault the accommodation, service or food, an amazing trip to New York and stay in the Waldorf for 3 nights for an amazing price! You will indeed love Celebrity too if you sail with them, we are off on our second cruise with them this summer, in a balcony cabin, can't wait! Enjoy.

Taffy - Answered a Question by fay (14 Mar 12 09:22)

Further to the previous answers the restricted view cabins are sold as that and it tells you which in the brochure ? You get a good mix of age groups and sometimes a nice mix of Nationalities but not to many children. The newer Solstice class ships are big but the way they are laid out it does not feel like it very easy to find your way around . The Millennium class ships a bit smaller but quite spacious,you can expect very good food and service on all there ships. book one and enjoy it Taffy .

Hormones Rage on the High Seas!

By Gina Rowan

Have you heard the latest? A Cruise Line has proudly announced its ‘New Women only cruise’ Whoever thought that this would be a good idea should have a serious talking to. What was she (or he..) thinking? Seriously!Imagine the outcry if a cruise line announced a Men Only cruise? Women, including myself would have plenty to say about it. So why is a Women Only cruise marketed as a good idea?I cant imagine it will take off, and what kind of women would it attract? Hen parties...

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...

Balconies in the Arctic Wou...

By Ben Allsopp

Ben Allsopp's blog

Quite recently with the launch of some very exciting itineraries, I have had a lot of bookings for the Northern Lights and Arctic voyages of late and every customer has asked me for a Balcony. I feel this is because these cruises are for the destination and the clientele tends to be very well travelled.As people cruise more and more, by the third of fourth time- They tend to go for a balcony cabin and it is very hard to go back down to an ocean view or an inside from there.But the point I am ...
