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.

My Dream Cruise

By Edward Griffiths

Make no mistake, my heart lies with the Ocean. The rolling waves, the fresh sea air and the gentle shudder as we slice through the water will always give me goosebumps, but this got me thinking – do I have a dream cruise? The answer is YES! Tonight I was browsing some options for a customer when I stumbled across a stunning itinerary on a truly iconic ship.

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...
