Library's on cruise ships do not make a charge but don't put the idea in their heads! Regards Wilba.

We were impressed with the library on board Ventura, lots of new books and no charge!!! I did hear someone moan that there were no chairs but it is situated in the bottom of atrium and there are very nice comfortable settees around to sit there if you wish or do as we did and take them back to the cabin!

Bear in mind also, if you are fly cruising(which I assume you are as you refer to saving weight on luggage), that you can always buy your books airside at the airport bookshops. and take them on board the plane as part of your hand luggage. Cynthia.

People bringing paperback often finish them and are quite happy to swap on board as well so if you see someone near the end of a book you fancy don't be afraid to ask. I generally get through three on a cruise. .Regards , Ida.

Sea Princess, Aurora and N.C.L.Jade each had a shelf in the library for the exchange of books which is handy if the librarian has locked the lending shelves. Jade's library is open for borrowing 24hrs but there's no librarian. I presume that most ships will have this exchange facility. Happy reading! Jo.

Part 2 of the Harmony of the Seas

By Lorraine McSorley

Following on from Part 1 of by thoughts on Harmony of the SeasWe had purchased the wine and beer package but quickly realised that upgrading to the Ultimate package was better value for money from Cocktails to soft drinks, wine and beer they had it all, lots of cast ales in the English pub and really good quality wines from around the world, my favourite was from New Zealand, a Sauvignon Blanc Villa Maria that they served in the main Dining room, the food was outstanding there are so many eat...

Themed cruises all the way.

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I had to smile this week when I read about Bonnie Tyler making a guest appearance on board ‘Oasis of the seas’ to help get passengers in the spirit to experience the Solar eclipse. Very clever Royal Caribbean, it’s almost as good as an episode of ‘Homes under the hammer’.Bonnie will be belting out her 80’s hit ‘Total eclipse of the heart’ alongside American rock dance band DNCE in the Aqua Theater about an hour before the eclipse next week. You ...

Southampton Port Parking I...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

I always think arriving at the airport or port is really the start of the holiday but last time I cruised from Southampton it was a bit of a nightmare and very stressful. Traffic jams between Oxford and Newbury made us, and many other passengers, late to start with and on arriving at the cruise terminal the queues were horrendous to say the least. Sitting in a car for an hour and a half looking at Ventura is not the best start to anyone`s cruise. Fortunately we had booked Valet Parking so on...
