The inside cabins on the Ventura are 160 sq ft in size which is average, and slightly larger than on some of the other P&O ships. The cabin you speak of should be very quiet (unless you have noisy neighbours of course)! You are well away from the nearest stair well, and only have other cabins both above and below you. Being right at the front of the ship, you will not have other passengers constantly walking past at all hours to access their cabins either! You MAY hear the waves hitting the bow, but I doubt it, and you will probably hear the anchor being dropped and raised. The only thing you have to get used to is waking up in complete darkness, WHATEVER THE TIME OF DAY! Whether or not it is worth getting an outside cabin depends on how much extra it costs and how much you would like one! It will be exactly the same size except that it will have a window in place of the large mirror over the headboards of the beds. Traditionally, the most stable place on board is as low down as possible, equal distance from the bow and the stern (amidships). However, it is considered more prestigious the higher the deck you are on, and it will be more expensive also. It is not usually too rough in the Caribbean, and the Ventura is a very large ship, so I do not think you should worry too much about being seasick. Have a think about it. I have only ever had one outside cabin, and I certainly would not pay very much extra for the priviledge. I would rather use the money enjoying myself on the ship or on shore! Happy cruising.

So, I have done a short interview with Jane, who has also kindly let me share some of her wonderful p...

NCL Gem Med Cruise

By Declan Doherty

The last two stops on our itinerary were Livorno and Villefranche. As we had pre-booked the Monaco & Monte Carlo excursion for Villefranche, we opted to do our own thing in Livorno and take it easy for the day.After a short coach transfer from the port to the city center we spent most of the day shopping. There were plenty of shops, bars and restaurants and we found them to be very reasonable with plenty of choice. From here we had the option of visiting Pisa or Florence or both if you ...
