I understand it is having its 25 year MOT. Also renewing of soft furnishings.

Just returned from a trip on Celebration. They are soon going into dry dock for a month for various furnishings to be renewed and refurbishment of many of the bathrooms,which certainly needed it. Still like it as a boat, though. Excellent atmosphere. Sheila, Maldon .

Yes it is going in for a refit after the Taste of Ireland cruise on the 23rd of October. As for staying on deck 9 a friend of ours stayed on it and it all depends where you are going to. They didn't sleep one night as the foghorn was going all night and it was really loud from their cabin. So think of the weather and the time of year before booking this one, might be better midship.

Not related to deck 9 as such but something worth knowing as we have just found out!! We had had cabins on deck 4 on earlier cruises and liked the picture windows rather than the small portholes on lower decks. So, looking at the deck plans, we booked cabin 304 because the last three on each side looked slightly bigger than the rest of the cabins on that deck. Well yes it was bigger but it had a porthole not a proper window and it was at the end of what is best described as a tunnel between the cabin wall and the outside of the ship. The result was that the cabin was always dark and gloomy and you couldn't really see out of the porthole/window anyway.

We,ve sailed on Celebration twice this year, the last being in July to Iceland and the talk on the ship was that it is having a refit later this year but i don,t know when but i do know it,s doing a 3 night mini cruise to Ireland on October 24th. As for deck nine not sure we stayed on deck 8 both times, both outside cabins and both with good views. You need either a delux cabin or a suite for the good windows.

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

A Majestic Atrium the heart of the ship.

By DJ Weatherall

DJ Weatherall's blog

Majestic and her stunning atrium is the heart of the shipThe Plaza on Majestic is on Deck 5 – from here you can access 3 decks either by marble staircase or Panoramic Lifts – it is without doubt the heart of the ship. There are restaurants and bars, cafe’s and lounges, speciality tea and coffee takeaway or sit down areas and the all important shops.I know some lines prefer to have a royal promenade that runs along the centre of the ship – but Majestic just like Royal a...

MSC Loyalty Match scheme a hit!!

By Brad Smith

Brad Smith's blog

MSC have launched a new incentive to attract new customers and reward existing clients with an offer of matching customers loyalty level with competitors. Rather that just stop at matching cruise line loyalty levels, they have gone as far as matching loyalty levels for hotel chains and tour operators too.Clever move in my opinion, as I have many customers that specifically stick to a specific company as their loyalty levels are at the top level, so they love the perks they receive from their ...
