Gray - Answered a Question by birkett (25 Jul 08 11:14)

Hello. We were in that cabin about a month ago. The veiw is filled with a lifeboat that only disappears when it is needed as a tender. It is however a very nice cabin and the view restriction did not bother us. The cabin is only a very short walk (about 10 yds) to an excellent, quiet stern deck wich afords views in almost any direction. Ship and service is first class. A Gray.

It looks as though you face a lifeboat, hence fully restricted. The following website http://www.fredolsencruises.com/our-ships/boudicca/decks will take you to Deck 8 and run the cursor along the line and you will see your cabin very close to the lifts. hope this helps, but it doesn't get rid of the problem. When on board if it really is bad the sign will no doubt say don't ask for a cabin change as we are fully but see the pursor the day after you leave port and see if they can't do something to improve your lot. I did this for a couple we met on a NCL cruise and with a bit of sweet talking we got them moved from and inside to an outside cabin with a balcony. In their case there was a cost as it was an upgrade but it wasn't a lot.

I did it!!!

By Lisa West

Last weekend I completed in the London Moonwalk – what an amazing but very emotional experience. Our group The Girls from the Ditch meet at 5pm where we had arranged for a mini bus to take us all down to London. We had to be in Clapham Common for 9pm so we had plenty of time to get down there. The day didnt quite go to plan for my sister who was joining me on the walk, her Grandson decided to come 2 weeks early and arrived at 2.30 in the afternoon, so after being up since 4.30 Sa...

NCL All Inclusive Drinks&Tips ...

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

 Recently NCL announced that their Ultimate Drinks Package & prepaid gratuities were now mandatory in all of their sailings. At first glance this would seem to be a good idea. After all, I can’t tell you how many enquiries I get on a daily basis, asking if a drinks package is included. Rightly so, as your bar bill is usually the most expensive item on your cruise bill!So there has been a definite trend towards passengers preferring a total cruise fare with an all inclusive d...

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...
