        are children the age of 14 allowed to use the gym? sailing on the 6th of august - my sons really into fitness and kickboxing, would like to know if there are any type of martial art classes too.
        I have been a member of three gyms over the last 25 yrs and no child under 16 has been allowed to use the main gym facilities. Individual sports such as kickboxing may have different rules.

                        A few tips to help the boarding go abit more smoothly

                        Just a few tip for you all, put your luggage tags on all of your luggage before you set of on the 6th and check in online which allows you to get on the boat quicker, then once youve got on the boat and done your saftey thing go to the main promonade and get your daughter/son a soda package which is about $60 for unlimited soda, and then go to the climing wall, surfrider and ice skating rink to sign all the wavers so they can go on them then whenever they want.. depending there age they may still need an addult to accompany them!
                        Jack, see you there ;) 6th august 2011

                          Good advice I would just add
                          Just get the bookings done asap even before lifeboat drill if you can, you can normally board early though you can't get to your cabin normally untill 14.00 so make the most of that time

                              We leave early stop just outside Southampton at a Tesco store, have breakfast and buy any last minute things that you remember when it's really to late to go back home so you are in panic mode even though you can survive without whatever it is.

                              Well as long as you have your passport and credit card you will be fine
