You have always got the privacy of your cabin! Our next door couple with balcony never strayed very far from their cabin. Always 'resting' sign in their door, room service throughout the cruise. Not a young couple but good for them. But what we could not understand why pay all that money and never explore the ship or any ports of call? But at least they were quiet not like the other side! Shouting and yelling to the other balcony and the next one! No, I am not jealous, just quietely envious! Although we did enjoy our cruise!

Yes we have booked a balcony cabin but have realised from other peoples comments that the outdoor chairs do not provide adequate relaxation positions and i agree we have spent a lot of money and will be exploring the ship and its services .

Have a wonderful cruise the two of you, miss our kids and grandkids tremendously when we go away, but we all need special time together dont worry about the chairs on the balcony, that should be the last thing on your minds. The balcony chairs are brill when you go out in the morning or evening with your coffee or g and t, Have a wonderful time together. You deserve it!

Have you ever thought that the couple in the next cabin might have suffered from sea-sickness or indeed been too ill to put in an appearance or that they may have had all sorts of things that they didn't want seen by the staff and hung a notice there just to stop people coming in, or they may have been stowaways and didn't feel they had the right to service or that it was the ghosts of two people who passed on whilst occupying that cabin or maybe there was just no one in there and it was kept as a hide-away for the Hotel Manager etc. Nothing to do with the question asked but I just am in one of those moods at the moment, I think it's called belligerency. ....

For goodness sakes. Why do you have to be so belligerent? Cannot anyone have a say apart from you?

Oh, lighten up anon of UK ( I do hate it when people hide behind pseudonyms) When have I ever stopped people having a say, the opposite is true as I often invite a converse answer. Lots of love. ... Neil.

There is plenty to do without children. The clubs for children are 1st class and you hardly see them around as they run from 10am to 10pm!and they are located at the back of the ship on top decks.The Spa has a "couples only" room - (one couple at a time) and the pool near the spa is for adults only although you will need to remind staff to remove children from the pool if they stray in. Restaurants are busy and top class but if you like to use the buffet or the pool which is covered, then you may come across more children.

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

Over the last few years here at www.CRUISE.co.uk we have seen the cruise industry change massively. Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...
