Neil and Ida Down - Answered a Question by Will Langmead (01 Dec 07 21:01)

Hi Will, First of all get to know your ship, she's beautiful, big but beautiful. Walk all around, put your head into all the differing departments of her including whichever restaurant you have chosen. Feel the ship and the open decks and the majesty of her. Talk to people, crew and passengers, not for long but to get into the habit of doing what true cruisers do. Have a snack or even have it sent to your cabin. Watch out for those awful carpets on some floors they will make your eyes go googly. Enjoy being served and do it as often as you can, you will not get better service with any other cruise line. We often go to breakfast, and lunch in the restaurant because each time it is an experience and you have paid for it and you will only find the equivalent in very good hotels and restaurants. Take advantage of the shows they are much better than QE2 and, particularly if you like a dance, immerse yourself in the Queens Room and soak up the ambience and luxury of it. When you get your daily events paper sit in bed with a tea or coffee and decide what you want to do and see during sea days and shore days, mark them with felt tip or biro and don't miss a thing. There that's enough to go on with.....just do as so many of us do and love the cruise....regards Ida (oh and Neil.

I am no connoisseur, but my husband is. If ever I need to get into his good book, I know what to serve. I took him to an amazing restaurant for his 40th (see below!).I am a little bit of a food snob, but that all changed when I experienced Johnny Rocke...

Sailing like a Celebrity Part ...

By Molly McIntyre

Molly McIntyre's blog

As I was only on board for two nights we did not bother with any speciality dining on this occasion so we ate in the main dining room which was amazing. We had opted for Celebrity Select Dining which means we could choose when we wanted to go for dinner and could just turn up or you can pre-book a time on your planner. We pre-booked 6.45pm on both nights. On arrival at the dining room entrance we were escorted to a table towards the back of the restaurant and were immediately greeted by two l...

The Nightmare Of Packing For A Holiday !

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Watching the Royal wedding this weekend, and looking at the lovely outfits, I started to think about what I am going to pack for my Azamara cruise next week. Choosing an outfit for any special occasion can be daunting, and time consuming, and a Royal Wedding must be stressful to say the least but packing, for a holiday is another thing altogether!The first cruise I ever went on was Fred Olsen Braemar sailing from Southampton. Packing for that was easy, just take everything you want as there i...
