No there won't be but there are usually plenty of facilities where you could go and fill up a small thermal flask and head back to your stateroom. There is also room service but that is not always very speedy. As far as bedding is concerned you should put this as a special request at the time you are making your booking. If you are dealing via a travel agent they should be able to find out from the cruise line if the request is being made if booking via the internet then a phone call to the cruise line would be necessary then ask for a ref you can quote when you make the booking.

Yes there are tea/coffee making facilities in the room, although the tea bags were awful. I recommend you get some teabags from the garden cafe(twinnings english breakfast tea,herbal teas etc) if you want a decent cuppa. You can also get fresh milk there at all times. The beds are the most comfortable i have come across and i slept really well which is not like me. Ours came with a mattress topper even though we hadn't requested it, i'm not sure if its standard in all cabins. Hope this helps.

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...
