There is noise from the engines if your cabin is past the aft staircase especially on the lower decks but it is more of a constant drone and you soon get used to it, its not loud, in fact its quieter on the lower decks with not so many people milling around, we were on bronze deck and didnt notice the vibration that many others have mentioned except when the ship is docking and using the side thrusters, in my opinion the noisiest rooms are on the upper decks especially if you are beneath one of the resturants or the table tennis table, I hope this helps, have a great tim.

We had a cabin on golden deck, restricted view, which was okay really, we did book late to be fair we were towards the back of the boat and did not find it noisy at all. they do have cabins for four, ours was for three so dont know what they have on golden deck for fours. have a great time you wont be dissappointed.

Hi, we were unfortunate enough to get a cabin which looked out the back of the ship I believe was on deck 4 as we had booked late and for a whole week I did not sleep as the noise from the engines was horrendous. When the ship was moving it actually sounded like they were dragging the anchor and a dozen old cars behind it. The ship was nothing short of an old worn out dirty car ferry. As we had booked late thought that we might have got a good deal but actaully we paid over the odds and felt that we were nothing short of ripped off and would never step foot on another Island ship!! Sorry for the negative response but I believe in honesty.

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...

A Port guide to Le Havre

By Trevor Smith

Trevor Smith's blog

I’ve done a couple of cruises now that visit Le Havre but on both occasions, I chose to stay on the ship and enjoy the facilities there. Next time I think I will get off and explore, weather permitting. Here is what I missed and what you could do when visiting this lovely French Town.A Taste Of Normandy Unlike the rest of France Normandy is blanketed in apple orchards instead of vineyards. For centuries these apples have been used to make a bubbly fermented cider and distilling that cid...

Her Majesty and I have more in...

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

I love smaller ships, I don’t need a choice of 14 restaurants, multiple bars and lounges, rock climbing walls and ice-skating rinks, if anything it is too much choice and I find you end up flitting from bar to bar all evening, not settling in one place. Give me a Fred Olsen ship with one bar, one lounge and one theatre and I have all I need thank you very much.A couple of years ago I had the chance to visit the Hebridean Princess, the little ship that has been chartered by her Majesty f...
