Hi Quinn from manchester We r also booked on the artemis 27/12/08 and we have also been wondering if we have made a mistake by booking it. We have just returned from a caribbean cruise with Sea Princess Feb 2008 and had a fantastic time. We are also late 40's ealy 50's so dont worry there will be at least 4 of us under the age of 65.

Yes, well, I'm not really sure what reviews have been on offer but when my wife and I had a cruise on the Artemis last Summer (and will be on another THIS Summer), we didn't hear of any such negative reviews. We are both in our early fifties (I was 51) and we shared a table with two ladies in their forties. On the next table were a couple in their twenties and they didn't seem to mind the ages of their fellow passengers! Look, just forget about the ageism thing; everyone on board Artemis enjoys themselves and age has nothing at all to do with it. Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing Norway and I know my wife feels exactly the same way. Miind you, we did notice that some of those 'oldies' are a bit sneaky because a number of them are a darn sight fitter than us!!

We went on the Grand Caribbean cruise in March/April this year for 5 weeks. On the whole we enjoyed the lovely ports of call, and the ship was friendly. BUT the standards have certainly plummeted as the food wasn't very good at all and as for the evening entertainment, well, forget it. We are in our late 50's and young at heart. We also sailed on the Sea Princess and much preferred it. But I hope you have a great time.

My day out with Emirates..

By Lisa West

Just before Christmas I was invited to Birmingham Airport to take a look around Emirates Airbus 380 while she was doing her very quick turnaround from landing to take off.It seems each time the airbus lands at Birmingham it brings lots of joy and excitement! Our first sighting was just after 11 when we saw her circling the skies waiting for her landing slot, the view from the conference room was great and she came into land right in front of us! I must admit I am definitely not a plane spo...
