The easiest, cheapest & only way is to share a cabin with yourselves or someone else.

I have travelled frequently on the Marco Polo when it was owned by Orient Lines in cabin 101 or 102, which are really single cabins. I have noticed that Transocean market them as twins, but I cannot imagine where they are puitting the other bed. Try asking your travel agent to try and do a deal, i.e. 1 twin plus one of the above mentioned cabins. Marco Polo was an excellent ship under Orient Lines, but cannot really recommend Transocean as I sailed with them May 2007 and wasn't particularly impressed, but hopefully they have kept the same standards on Marco Polo. Happly cruising, keep looking and you never know what deals you can come with. I know cause I usually sail as a single and refuse to pay more than £100 per week extra for a single cabin.

Smoking Should NOT be Allowed ...

By Zara Kelly

When we book a cruise, part of our job is managing the whole experience. However, this week I have been upset to hear reports that two separate clients have been disturbed by others smoking on their balcony, this was on two different ships ex USA. We all know at sea that smoke is going to blow around!First, let me explain that some cruise lines have a strict no smoking policy in cabins and on balconies, which my clients would have been aware of. Most cruise lines can charge you a cleanup char...
