Hiya, Flew to Barbados and found the seats crowded and had to wedge in! Being tall I was struggling, even more so on the way back which was overnight. Really wished i had paid for an upgrade on the flight. Well worth it! Steps into the adult only pool, ladders into the kids pool. Enjoy your holiday,.

If you are flying with Thomas Cook on an A330 airbus then you have a problem. The seats are very cramped in terms of width and leg room. They have squeezed 9 across the cabin instead of the normal 8 seats. If you are on a Thomson Boeing 767 it will be much better. Please consider putting your problem to your trip organiser ASAP to ensure that you get the best possible seat to make the flight bearable. It's 9 hours in duration. The inflight entertainment is good though - if it's working. The ship is one you will either love or hate. I've been on OV1 twice and think it's great. I'm 62. Use La Luna for a "posh" meal once or twice - it is superb eating. The Bistro is more expensive and only a bit better. If you selected a balcony then the option to sit outside with an early morning cup of tea is terrific. All OV cabins have facilities for hot drinks. The entertainment is excellent on OV, shore trips expensive, drinks are normal pub prices. Have a great time. Any more questions to xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.

My advice would be - arrive at the airport early and if its a thomas cook flight, smile at booking clerk and ask for an exit seat or similar with extra room ( bulkhead possibly ?) The seats are narrow and uncomfortable but the food and service was very good ( better than first choice ) who ran out of coffee & tea and some food on our last flight back from Barbados this combined with long periods of " moderate to severe " turbulance was the worst flight in 40 years ( but plenty of legroom in 767 :)La Luna was excellent ( bistro not worth the extra ) cabins and decor really nice it was our first caribean cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed.

I would advise that you contact ocean village direct or your travel agent. you can make them aware of your situation.They do have medical seats on planes for pepole with medical probles such as bad knees, if you can get a doctors note you stand more of a chance getting seats with extra leg room. Thomas Cook flights are very uncomfortable unless you have paid extra for premium seats!!!

Party Animal At My Age?

By Jill Johnson

Jill Johnson's blog

My holiday on Celebrity Reflection… What was the entertainment like? Well there is of course the bars and lounges but this ship had something special…….Silent Disco – Now ive got to say i haven’t been to a disco since 1985, so I would imagine a lot has changed over the years and to my amazement we had the Silent Disco, actually the ship arranged two of them, one on the top sun deck and one in the Solarium, which was by day a tranquil place to snooze, swim or try ...
