Don't know where you got this idea, but forgetabout it!!!Just think for a moment-----how on earth(or on the high seas) could the ship's crew enforce this? By branding or tatooing you or fitting electronic tagging to track you and prevent your accessing parts of the ship???I dont think so!!!Cynthia.

I came across lots of people on a recent cruise who had paid half of what I did and had better rooms Once you have booked you are there like everyone else-the staff do not have a clue what people have paid On our table no 2 couples had paid the same I have had 8 cruises but will be looking for late deals in future as all that booking far ahead has got me is a sick feeling when I discovered I could have saved £2000 for the same cabin on the same cruise as was the case with Olsens this year.

If you book with RCI or X and the price of your cabin goes down - then you get that new lower costing. So it is a win-win situation and you are not penalised for booking early.

If there was any truth in that tale I would have spent some of my cruises confined to a lifeboat. Be rest assured there is absolutely no truth whatsoever in that kind of gossip. Just go & enjoy yourself..... Wilba.

The only thing that could possibly affect you if you take a late deal is that you are offered what is termed as a guarantee cabin. Ie you will not know which cabin you are given until nearer the sail date and of course this could be one situated right in the bowels of the ship or in the very forward section or possibly in a spot considered noisy (although I have never been in any cabin where I have been bothered by noise) or with an obstruced view etc. IE You pay your money you take your chance. This being said it can also work the other way and you could end up with a fabulous cabin. As for care and restriction of access: I really dont know where you got your information from, you will have access and top service from all.

We booked our Cruise on Ventura a year ago for a balcony cabin and we now find that if we booked now we could have saved ourselves almost £1000. This will be our 1st ever cruise and if we go on another we will wait until nearer the time before we book again and probably save ourselves some money.

Family cruise On Indy

 Time really does go fast. It wasn’t that long ago I was counting down the days until our family cruise, and now it has been and gone. You have probably seen lost of posts on the newly refurbished Independence and here is my take on it.We went on the 5 night sailing over to Cherbourg and Cobh in May half term. On the day we sailed away it was in the late 20’s which unfortunately didn’t last, but we were lucky it stayed dry. Like previous years we have got up early and t...
