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.

A Cruiser? Me Sir? No Sir?...

By Jodie Baldwin

My last blog was about my partner actually taking his first cruise . My blog today has been done by Mike who tells us about his first cruise experience. Today is part 1 with part 2 to follow next time. Here goes!The idea of a cruise never really ‘floated my boat’. Hundreds actually thousands of people lumped onto a vessel, fighting for space and corralled for a least a week . No- not for me. On the other hand , if your partner is employed by one of the largest cruise travel agenci...

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

Over the last few years here at www.CRUISE.co.uk we have seen the cruise industry change massively. Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...

Is River Cruising Accessible?

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

Quite simply, River Cruising is my passion, my favourite type of cruise. i have been lucky enough to do five river cruises to date and the next one can’t come soon enough. Top of my river cruising bucket list has to be the Mekong, gliding through Vietnam and Cambodia – one day I hope!You would think that river cruising would be perfect for people with limited mobility, smaller ships with less passengers on, only three decks etc, but is river cruising really ideal for wheelchair an...
