Baylie - Answered a Question by David (13 Oct 08 15:53)

Hi David, the only outdoor eating area I came across was in Jonny Rockets, all the rest are inside. But don't forget you can use sometimes use the main dining rooms for breakfast and lunch there is also Sorrento's and the promenade cafe. I did see people bringing the likes of cakes and coffee from the Windjammer out onto the deck area by the swimming pools but whether this would work for anything more substantial I don't know. The other thing to note is that when the Windjammer is packed you can sometimes use Chops and Portafino areas to eat the buffet food during breakfast and lunch.

I think this has a lot to do with your itinery and as we had mainly sea days as it was a short cruise there was no way of knowing what others might be doing. You can look at the excursions and avoid the rush by anticipating what time others need to get off the boat. We mainly ate in the dining room for all meals as it was more structured and if you have a really want to avoid crowds - order room service.

The choice is poor in the main resturants for breakfast n lunch ! we found the windjammer is great we never encountered a problem in getting a table we used to go 8 to 8.30 and the choice is much greater though the funny thing is they dont do poached eggs in windjammer but only in main resturants ! how strange ! people do get things from windjammer and take them on deck we found this is no problem we used to take coffee etc afterwards to have with a ciggy etc enjoy your cruise the iots is agreat ship and cant wait to get back on board next year !!

What a week it was!

By Eamon Lau

Ok, so as you may, or may not know, I was away for a short break last week. It was very VERY welcomed and my wife and I had a great time.We flew on Wednesday morning from Belfast to Southampton at 7am. Things didnt start too well. I had a booking come in at 11pm at night and it took me until after 2am to complete it all (dedication you may say!) As we should have been leaving the house at 5am, my wife and I decided just to stay up, tidy the house and pack rather than go to bed!We arrived in a...

Royal Caribbean

By Renee Gagen

Renee Gagen's blog

Many customers have been asking when Royal Caribbean’s 2019 prices from Southampton will be out and we really haven’t got an answer for this as Royal Caribbean haven’t announced yet which ship they will be bringing to Southampton.I’ve heard and this might only be a rumour but it could be the Quantum of the seas or the Anthem of the seas but I really don’t know which ship they will be bringing to Southampton. Some people are saying that we could find out in March ...

It`s Time To Grab A Bargain

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

February has arrived and, apparently, it is going to be the coldest on record. Traditionally this is the time of year when holiday and cruise companies hope we are thinking of warmer days, and planning holidays.Looks like there are going to be some bargains around, but not necessarily for people who leave booking until the last minute. Last week I booked a lovely cruise on P&O Oceana for some clients of mine which we both thought was a really good deal.Oceana is one of P&PO`s older s...
