I would tentatively suggest that you stay where you are. You have two crossings of the Bay of Biscay and being in the front of the ship will mean that there could be far more movement there than, say, mid-ships. Having looked at your itinerary I can see what you mean but the bright side is that you are on the bright side, that is the sunny side, going out and the Gibraltar side coming home and that is always a great sight. ...... Neil.

Many thanks fo this. I've been reading the site and your knowledge is so useful. Our agent has now offerred another alternative! Midship on Caribe deck Port side (on the left?) This will cost another £150 approx which we think is probably reasonable. But while we,ve been told that the balconies are bigger on Caribe deck, we understand that they are overlooked by the ones above, which would cancel out the point of the privacy of having a balcony. Any advice would be appreciated!!

I wouldn't worry too much about be overlooked unless Mr Smith intends to go topless! If you are going to use it for times like Breakfast in dressing gowns or afternoon sunbathing and reading it normally isn't a problem and as far as I can ascertain you are only overlooked by people in the Grand Suite, have a look at the brochure and see what you think. regards......Neil.

Hi just found your question when we booked our med cruise last year we asked the cruise adviser which side of the ship would be best when arriving at the ports we were advised the port side so we booked port mid ship but discovered that the cabins on starboard side had better views when in port than we had.
