The Oasis of the Seas is still at the building stage it may well be a charge might be made but more detials will come to light next year, a bit early yet for them to have made this decision.

Thanks for your reply,i know its still in the building stage.........however if they intend to charge then i would expect to see it on the detailes about it now. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Being a highly suspicious person it is possible this route could be used to help offset the heavy burden of increased fuel charges all the cruise lines are facing, but hopefully not. There was an annoucement by Royal Caribbean it faced a $700 million increase in fuel costs this coming year !! Bill.

It's a small world. Another reason for charging might be that when this adventure type of action is involved your holiday insurance might not cover an accident so that could be another reason. I heard yesterday that the diamond members of crown and anchor the Royal Caribbean loyalty card which anyone can take up membershup, they are being offered the first choice of booking this ship.

I did give another reason for a charge and that it could be to cover users for insurance purposes. Most insurances would not cover rock wall climbing as a normal safe pursuit so it could be this might be a reason in case someone has an accident. I think I read somewhere either a guest climbing or ice skating and they badly hurt themselves and their insurance would not cover such an incident but time will tell.

Sadly they are going down the slippery slope of pile them in and entice with a few aparrent attractions that all will have to pay for. They seem to think that big is best and will learn taht not everyone likes to be a number. Charging for extras is a difficult balance but when you feature items such as the rock wall then charge it is misleading.

We Love Manchester 10Kwe did it!!!

By Abbi Varela

….and what a fantastic day it was too, such a sense of achievement. As you probably guessed I took part last weekend in the We Love Manchester 10k run, along with my sister and friend. It was a really great day and the atmosphere was the best it has ever been.I can’t say the run was easy, in fact far from it! I was praying for cloud or even rain on the morning, running in the sun is so much harder. As we set off at 930 it was almost as if someone switched on the sun!! …it wa...

But imagine if you know a few tricks to make that cabin space bigger or at least feel like it!Read on to find out which cruise essentials you should be taking with you, that won’t take up much...
