It would depend on the ship, if you have a balcony, and if you like want to be on your own or up on the deck with lots of other people.

The ship makes a difference - for example Voyager is...

Hi,
When we last went the time you could see the ICE show performance was based on the letters/numbers on our sea pass card. Something to do with ODD / EVEN numbers from memory. The cruise...

I'm guessing the apps need to talk to a central server, or get online to the internet. To do that on a ship you could connect to their wi-fi but then you'd be paying the wi-fi access costs - which...

I'd expect you will get an OBC if you book onboard. We usually do; then transfer it to a travel agent (if you wish) and if the price comes down we are able to cancel / rebook etc.
So can't lose...

It's a different cruise line, but we just got back from a cruise on Voyager. The family we were with had a not so young child who was autistic - he only wanted really simple food to each. He didn't...

It's likely the Radiance pricing will come down so certainly keep an eye on in. It's a long way off yet, and likely to change

Hi,
I did hear from a TA that Carnival closed the kids close from 2pm till 4:30PM for 'family time' - it for you to be together with your children. So just check on that before you make a final...

I expect it to be more 'older' than younger.
We were on Radiance to NZ for 2 weeks last year and the demo was definately older.
We had been on a couple of P&O ships before we decided to try RCL. on...

Hi,
You could probably just walk into any TELSTRA shop and get a pre-paid SIM and phone. Then put say $30 or $50 on it and use it for the month. Telstra has the best coverage in Australia. ...

I did similar when we went to NZ on Radiance in January - In the first port I grabbed a telstra SIM for $20 NZ I think it was. It was only for my iPad and I got 500meg of data but I'm sure if I put...

We did a 'Sydney to Newcastle' which went for a day to Port Macquarie and back again (to fill in the time really as it was a two day cruise)
I turned roaming off on my phone and I had 3G phone and...

I saw a sail away time booked for Sydney I think, it was listed as 11:59pm. (ie middle of the night)
I'm guessing they listed it as that to avoid this exact confusion your seeing. If they said...

we took a 4 year old on our first cruise.
He loved it; loved kids club, loved the ship; the waiters loved him.
We had a 4 birth cabin (only paid for 3 people obviously) but they had 2 beds on...

After a problem with a compass last night, we are moving! Life is good again on the Pacific Pearl :)

See if you can get out on the helipad - right at the Bow and a very good view! From memory, deck 5 forward, up some stairs through a doorway and your there. It's open to the public, even has chairs...

Are they saying, if she needed to be airlifted off the ship they would only pay $4000?

Hi,
We were onboard in January; and I did get the package including the chef table. We were looking initially at the chef table and it wasn't much more for the whole package, so we were at an...

Here are some pics I took this morning. Missed the turn though - heard it was coming it at 6:30; got there at 5:20 and it was docked and they were just doing the ropes. Oh well.

Hi,
I did a 2 night cruise with a group I had sort of organised to come with us.
There were 20 all up I think, as I booked 2 tables of 10 for dinner both nights.
I felt somewhat responsible for...

When we sailed, it was raining that morning so we got dropped off earlier than we planned to; mainly so we didn't have to line up outside in the rain but could line up at the front of the line...

Hi,
No trouble with taking water onboard - we were on in January. We took a couple of bottles in our backpacks through security, xray etc and no problems at all. Our waiters refilled them for us...
