    Arcadia cruise J715

    I agree with you both. I think it all adds to the experience of cruising when itineraries change.
  2. as far as I have always known you don't have to pay the tips on board, however for the wonderful service we all get I always pay them and sometimes a bit more as well. but its down to our own choices.

    Boyzlife?! Really?!

    wish I could get on the cruise love them really disappointed I can't see them
  4. I have recently sailed on fred olsen, balmoral ship and found everything perfect, food, service and cleanliness tip top.  Travelled on Britannia last year and again could not fault anything. I have tried land holidays but get bored, love the ship live and visiting different places.  so I will definately carry on cruising.

    hello loz6, we sailed to spain and portugal, places I have been to before and enjoyed, again very easy straight off the ship to the shops and bars, it was nice and warm as well, not so hot its hard to move around but very pleasantly warm

    balmoral 27th sept

    thank you waves for your reply, the ships are older but they are so nicely maintained, the carpets look so clean and fresh not one bit was to be found on them and the same for all the furnishings around the ship. What I did like is the actual wooden decks very nice. Balmoral also has a beautiful lounge where people can sit quietly and have a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate and buy individual chocalates to go with it. The pub also is very comfortable with an excellent keyboard player and singer. The shows excellent really good, including the crew show which all enjoyed. I agree with boushki it was easy to navigate and for easy for anyone with walking difficulties

    Mosquitoes on balcony

    With the weather we have here I am surprised that mosquitos survive once the ship hits the uk anyway
  10. yes I like obstructed view cabins you can get a nice position at a much lower price.

    Is Sea-Sickness All In Our Heads?

    interesting subject, I was always travel sick, sick on a coach, car, train, ferry boats around the harbour you name it, but then I really wanted to cruise so much and knew I couldn't be ill for the duration. I wanted to cruise so much that I took the plunge and I have never been sick since. so for me I guess it was something in the head but I yes people do have problems with the balances in the ear which will also cause sea sickness.
