Last April temps were min 6 max 17 degrees, so not to bad the highest recorded was 26 degrees, but not last year. Never coupled up a booking before but at worst you could sort out the eating together when you join the ship, see the Restuarant Manager as soon as and see if he/she can do a swap for you, normally they are available in an area of the ship and if you are not advised by the paperwork in your stateroom enquire at the front desk, but do it ASAP.

Any cruise agent can link your table bookings irrespective as to whether you use the same agent as your friends. Expect the weather in New York to be a few degrees lower than the UK. The weather should feel good after about 24/36hrs into your cruise.........Wilba.

Yes, you can link your bookings but you will need to get your friends booking ref number. Sometimes it may involve a courtesy call from Royal Caribbean to check if your friends agree to the linkage. Your travel agent should be able to organise this for you. Cant help with the weather, perhaps someone else can advise on that. If its similar to Oct/Nov it took approx 1 and half days sailing out of New York to reach warmer weather towards the caribbean.

Have not done "linking" with RCI, but I imagine there would be no problem as we have linked a booking with Celebrity(ie their sister company) with friends who made their booking in Canada via Celebrity U S office. If they were capable of that , linking 2 U K bookings should be a "doddle" . We have chums in New Jersey--next time I e-mail them i will try to remember to ask about early April weather. Cynthia.

Why Cruise Lines Dont Reall...

By Collette Apak

Amongst my regular customers I have quite a few who travel solo. Some choose to do so as their ‘significant others’ have other things planned or can’t get time off work. Some have either split up from, or have lost their partner and have no choice but to travel on their own. Some go with friends, but want to have the privacy of their own cabin to sleep in.Cruise holidays are a perfect option for people who travel alone. You can have plenty of ‘me-time’, but you ...

My Visit to see the MS Emily Bronte

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I was luck enough to be invited to see the new MS Emily Bronte. This was only a day trip but worth it all the same. An early start to the day travelling to Birmingham to be met by Riviera representatives and then a short flight to Dusseldorf followed by an hours transfer to where the ship was. I can see why River Cruises are very popular. Compared to an ocean Liner that are huge in size, River cruises give you a more intimate feel and are able to get into the heart of Cities. Some with excurs...
