The lifts on the Balmoral are quite inadequate for the size of the vessell, but there are two sets of two and the forward lifts do go to deck 11. There is no walkway as such, just steps as an alternative. It's actually a splendid lounge area when you get there, with great views over the sea, and a bar with bery friendly staff.

Thank you, as there does not appear to be any lifts to deck 11 on the deck plans I contacted Fred Olsen and they said that the lifts only go as far as deck 10 and therefore the only access to deck 11 is via the staircase!! I thought this strange as they claim to serve food on deck 11 when the weather is good.

Despite having sex with the clients being a sackable offence the staff would have no qualms getting involved. He also mentioned that the riskier the better so as well as having sex in the staff decks they would like to push the boundaries on the unpopulated decks.It wasn’...

Piraeus Athens Gateway Or ...

Continuing my look at European ports this week I thought I`d choose Piraeus, the port for the Greek capital Athens.Athens is probably most famous for the Acropolis, topped by the Parthenon Temple, and the National Museum. It is a bustling, busy city with lots to do and a place I have visited several times. It has lots of really good hotels, restaurants and bars as well as its history. Many cruise ships now visit Athens using Piraeus as the anchor port.The port sits about 7 miles from the city...
