    Cool Cruiser
  1. Thank you for the response. Have my eye on a couple of cabins so I'll give them a call soon.
  2. Hi. Just booked Explorer 2 for October in an outside cabin, which sleeps upto 4 people. I'm going to call to reserve a cabin close to lifts in a central location on deck 9 or 12. Ideally I would like a picture window (instead of a porthole) and one without folding down beds on the wall (brochure says some have fold down beds or a sofa bed). Don't suppose anyone has stayed in one and can offer any advice or will the team at Tui have this information when I call? Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi Just got back from Discovery. I think opening times were 08:00 - 20:00. There are stretch / abs classes from 7am and a cycle / yoga class a couple of times a day at a £7.00 charge. I took my gear and trainers, never made it to the gym though. Someone mentioned the indoor pool is open 24 hours, didn't make that either. Hope you are more motivated / dedicated than me 😊 Someone else will post if I've got any info wrong.
  4. Thanks all for the replies. Eventually sitting down now with a G&T, only last bit of packing to do before taxi arrives at 2:45am.
  5. Hi. Off on Discovery tomorrow. I know this has been asked before, how good are the hairdriers and are they located in the dressing table or fixed in the bathroom? Cheers.
  6. Thank you for the replies. kevinyork.... Unfortunately, due to 2 broken metatarsals, we won't be able to do the planned trip to Rome on the Express To Rome (done twice before) or Rome On Your Own. Did think of doing the easy on the legs trip but think will stay local. So looks like a shuttle bus / taxi.
  7. Thank you PC. Good news there might be a shuttle bus. :)
  8. Evening. How close is Civitavecchia to the port and is it a nice place to visit (did a quick search of what to do there and sounded quite good). Is it just a short taxi ride away? Cheers.
  9. As you say you are so looking forward to your cruise. I totally understand your frustration with said travel agent. Of course you will have a fabulous cruise, just think of the sail away! Happy days...:cool:
  10. Excellent review. So pleased you had such a good time. Roll on the next cruise eh :)
  11. Thank you for the reply. I've just got to motivate myself now. All good intentions in my head. ;p
  12. Thank you PC. I take it the gym doesn't close either then?
  13. Hi. What time does the indoor pool on Discovery open in the morning? Is it very busy first thing? Many thanks.
  14. Hi DB51. I fly out on 8th November. Alas only for 1 week. Only 181 days to go. Can't wait! :)
