Please can you tell me what “the hump”is.

Cheers Carole

On the newer ships there’s a bump that sticks out on the side where the elevators and stairs are.It gives more room for the services and the premium cabins such a suites are usually there.They have less obstructed view.

 That’s the hump on the ovation of the seas

Love booking last minute (Pack'N'Go). I have done at least a dozen of these over last 4.5 years. i usually go "The Fun Ship's" there here all year round, more likely to find these deals between March-October. They only have 1 ship here at the time. 

I love it cause I run a small business & can only get time-off at short notice & can't sail between Nov through till mid March (Air-cons are our biggest selling item; plus X-Mas retail trade). 

Went on one last month out to the islands. The only thing I have found out is they are not as cheap as before.. This year I'm paying $100 - $120 PP per day.For a Balcony. In the past it was around $75 - $100 PP per day..

Looking at one on the 26th of August. Going to Vila; haven't been there in 3 years.

Enjoy & enjoy The savings...

The difference for us is we can travel to where the special  is and it is not restricted to Sydney cruises.

It does limit us, as does herself being a teacher, but it is what it is, at least we can still cruise.

Yep, and you do still get away often enough.

I’m not sure I’d say often enough.

Perhaps not as often as you would prefer.
