Hi, We were on the sea princess in may and there is noise from the cinema, but as Dobson said there are plenty of quiet areas for you to relax in. We are in our late 40s and had my 83 year old mother with us, and she enjoyed laying in the sun, and watching a film. We found that there was plenty of sun beds, but then we didn't go when the schools were on holiday? We are going on the Grand Princess in May 09 and if its anything like the Sea Princess for atmosphere, entertainment, food etc it will be first class. We are going on Arcadia in Nov, and quite honestly we would much rather be going on a princess!!( Problems with the ship and loads of bad reviews)Have a great holiday. Look forward to reading your review when you return.

DON'T PANIC! Went on Sea Princess at Easter; going again Easter 2010. It is simple not true. Yes there is a MUTS screen byt the two main pools but there are other areas of the ship where you will get peace and quiet, with sunbeds AND a pool! Go to the stern (back) of the ship where you willfind a peaceful little area (actually above the gym). There are sunbeds, a small pool (mainly for adults) and a little bar. We also went on sun deck at the bow (front) of the ship. There is also a quiet little area with a splash pool there too. Don't beleive all negative comments. Some people think a bird twittering is ear piercing noise! Sea Princess caters for mainly Brits; the 'older' market and younf families. I was in Caribbean at peak season (I'm a teacher) and found it peaceful and relaxing. By that time I wanted a break from kids and found those areas of the ship just right. Oh, and I'm only 29. Us 'young' uns like peace and quiet too! Happy Holiday!

I seem to remember you needed head phones to "listen" to the big screen in the daytime.There were lots of "quiet areas" on this ship,try the rear of the ship it's a lovely experience.we have been on this ship a few times food service etc --wonderful.

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

So last week was a pretty busy week for me. Living up in Lossiemouth I had a training course in Glasgow on Wednesday and a training course in Edinburgh on Thursday but the highlight of my week has to have been my Ship visit onboard the Caribbean Princess. She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
