Hi there we are a family of 6 we flew with Thomas cook last year from gatwick to canada and weren't able to book sitting together in economy, we asked if we could sit together when we checked in on the day of departure and luckily we were all seated together, I think check in staff (at Gatwick, I cant say for other airports?) and cabin crew do their best and try to keep young children with their parents even asking other passengers if they are willing to move, some do some dont. some others passengers swapped seats after takeoff.

Most cruise companies book you in economy and we to have tried but unless you go for an upgrade and that might not be cheap is one way to do it.

Hi, Afraid it is true with TC. We are travelling with them in 4 weeks time and had the same answer to you. We have even got Premium seats but they can't guarantee we can sit together until we check in! I'm hoping to check-in the night (I believe you can do this?) before as we are staying at a hotel at Gatwick .

It was everything I expected and more. as soon as we got on board I was impressed with the decor and the grandness, it really is a beautiful ship. Our cabin was located on Baja deck B215 which had a balcony and for two sharing it is very spacious. Princess prides themselves on the beds and it was probably one of the most comfortable ones I have ever slept on. After embarkation, we...

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
