I think your observations and those of Berlitz are spot on .... RCCL are for the mass market and the family withy plenty of organised activity, ranging from rock climbing to party games on deck ... as such they are far more holiday campish than Celebrity and their food, although perfectly palatable is far more plain fare. They are rather like P&0 in that regard and I believe Celebrity and Cunard are classier and quieter.

Suggest you read the reviews over on cruise critic to get a varied honest opinion by a variety of cruisers. RCI is a 4* line and Celebrity is 5* - so of course there is going to be a difference. I have heard that the live music by the pool is going to be stopped [thank goodness], and yes there are a few announcements - but in no way is it 'noisy' or a party boat like Carnival are.

Black tie nights. Formal attire, smart casual, resort casual, semi-formal. They all have different names and all mean a different type of expected outfits.I get frustrated at the lack of respect shown by some people who think the rule doesn’t apply to them. That the’re exempt and can wear what they like. Absolutely you can wear what you like and we all should have a choice on what to wear at dinner but please pay attention to the dress code policy and respect it.This is for everyo...

Happy St Patricks Day!!So its that time of year again when everyone drinks Guinness, Jamesons and Bushmills and talks about how green Ireland is.But so very many people, in my experience begrudgingly LOVE St Patricks Day. Welsh by origin, St Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland and is renowned for ridding Ireland of snakes back in the day.The hill upon which this humble shepherd overlooked his flock is but 15 miles from me, Slemish just outside Broughshane in Co.
