Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Black (14 Oct 08 20:30)

You do not say which ship. They all differ in size and equipment some even have a whirlpool tub. They all have a butler ( more tips I’m afraid) so no need to make tea or coffee, just ring a special number you will be given and I think there is an iron and ironing board and lots of other nice bits like afternoon tea served evening canopies, fruit, flowers but best or all is (on most ships) the key to the Concierge Club for free canopies and drinkies in the evening and continental breakfast in the morning. Next time someone asks this question you’ll be able to answer with full authority. You can find out more by going to: http://www.royalcaribbean.co.uk/findacruise/cabinclass/cabinTypes/cabinType/home.do?br=R&cabincls=D&cabinType=OW&pager.offset=5. Regards. …. Neil .

Tut, tut, Neil - what's all this about 'evening and free canopies'? Surely the sun will have gone down by late afternoon? I'd far sooner be partaking of evening and free canapes, preferably smoked salmon! Happy nibbling, regards Jan .

Owners suite! Surely if you are booked in that all your questions would have been answered PRONTO! No matter which ship.

Thomson Cruise A whole new...

By Brad Smith

Having worked for Thomson for nearly a decade before coming to www.CRUISE.co.uk, I saw the company change dramatically over the years. From the airline purchasing brand new Dreamliner planes from Boeing, to the introduction of exclusive properties to cater for every type of holiday maker.Whilst working there I saw a few minor changes to the cruise side of the business, but nothing dramatic. The ships were always old and small, but customers loved them none the less. Well, that’s changed con...

Looking For School Holiday Cruises?

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day.

The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
