The dress code by day is casual and they will have a couple of formal nights but a dark suit for gents would do. I am afraid you are in the Canary Island area so no British TV plenty of American no doubt as it is cheap to access, so better get a friend to record it for you.

It's a while since I was onboard the Thompson Celebration but most cruise ships have some sort of satellite TV but usually only BBC World news or and or BBC Prime. Sometimes sky news but not usually the regular TV programming that you are used to at home. So set you favourite programs to record at home while you are away.

Although you need to be smart ( suit & tie ) to attend the formal nights, you do not HAVE to go - if you want to dodge it, simply dress as usual and have your meal in the buffet Lido restaurant. The only draw for some people was that you got a free drink at the pre dinner Capt's cocktail party! - at least this was true onthe Myths of Fjiords cruise in Sept. No you won't get BBC1! Best thing on TV was the web cam of where the ship was heading. Celebration vibrates quite a bit in places when they use the auxillary generators, but the atmosphere and comfort outweighs this. You'll have a great time and I bet you will be back for more. I think it woudl be difficult to find a more friendly and obliging crew anywhere.

Just got back had a great time, you can only get news channel and ship plays up to date films We paid the extra £40 to choose cabin with view and bath I think it is well worth the extra. Have a great time ..

And the godmother is..

By Leanne Mudd

Cruise ships are lucky to have some of the most prestigious and famous godmothers. Having a godmother for a ship is a longstanding naval tradition. New ships are to be sponsored by a civilian which is typically a woman. With this honorific title, the cruise ship godmother is selected to bring good luck and protection to the vessel as well as being part of the naming ceremony. The ship is then christened with a bottle of champagne (done by pressing a button these days) as good luck.But this we...

Wonderful Mexico

It was time for my annual week away with great friends. Last year we went to New York, which was a little cold so this year we went to warmer climates.We stayed at Riu Cancun in Mexico which was a perfect location to the bustling nightlife.We boarded our flight in Manchester the day after and inch and a half of snow fell, so yes there was a two hour delay but that did not bother us. 10 hours later we had swapped the minus 2 degrees to a more relaxing 28 degrees.The hotel was fantastic, all i...

Smoking Should NOT be Allowed ...

By Zara Kelly

When we book a cruise, part of our job is managing the whole experience. However, this week I have been upset to hear reports that two separate clients have been disturbed by others smoking on their balcony, this was on two different ships ex USA. We all know at sea that smoke is going to blow around!First, let me explain that some cruise lines have a strict no smoking policy in cabins and on balconies, which my clients would have been aware of. Most cruise lines can charge you a cleanup char...
