I very much doubt you'll be allowed on the Bridge. The terrorist attacks of Sept. 11th. 2001 changed all that sort of lark, and unless you're very well connected you won't be doing a Bridge tour, sorry. Mind you, there are a few 'Boutique Ships' where well-heeled customers(OBVIOUSLY not terroristically-inclined!) are allowed on to the Bridge, but that situation's probably waaay over your and my heads,financially!

Island cruises do tours of the bridge its a package you get drinks and photo taken and you get to go up when ship is coming out of ports up till last year they were doing it they have been doing them since we have done them every year since 200.

You do NOT have to have loads of money to visit a bridge on a ship,we did just that on thompson destiny it was great all we had to do was fill in a form on the ship requesting a visit to the bridge and we had a guided tour no proble.

I wrote on my post that we viewed the bridge on OV2 along with about 5 other couples. I asked at Reception on OV2 if we could do this, they said I needed to write to the captain to do this. So I asked to borrow a pen and some paper, wrote a quick letter and low and behold we got a note in our cabin door informing us where we ought to be at what time. It was really interesting and informative and lasted about 30 mins. Give it a go, ask at reception and see what they say.

Mystical Muscat and Amazing Abu Dhabi!

By Jodie Baldwin

On Saturday I returned from a fantastic cruise around the middle east from Dubai. Next time I will let you know what I thought about the ship but today I’m going to tell you about two of the excursions I took.Dubai and the middle east are a new area of the world to me with this being my first visit. I thought a cruise would be perfect as it would give me a good insight to each place visited with the chance to see what they have to offer with a possible return visit in the future.I pre-b...

Celebrity Edge Looks Incredible!

By Freddie Moser

So yesterday afternoon I was lucky to attend an online preview of some of the accommodation and facilities aboard Celebrity Cruises most ambitious ship ever built; Celebrity Edge….I’ll be honest when I first heard the name of the ship, I thought it was an awful choice. However it’s since grown on me, and after watching the presentation, I now see the logic in the name Edge.You see this ship is first and foremost all about design and technology, so phrases like ‘Cutting...

I have recently returned off the Celebrity Reflection round the Caribbean. I must say I do like going away this time of the year to get a bit of sun breaks up our long winter!!I flew into Miami on the 24th February taking a direct flight with BA from Heathrow, after a 9-hour flight and then a 2 wait to get through passport control I finally arrived at my hotel for the evening. I stayed at the Marriot Courtyard Miami Beach South Beach which was in an ideal location for an overnight stay. ...
