I'm hoping so as I know deck 14 has cabins on and that looks like deck 14. So the one on deck 13 might not be as bad or so dark. So we are going to stick with our cabin and hope for the best.


I think it’s absolutely deck 14. 1 would imagine that 13 is not so dark as it is lower down from the overhang.

Thank you Kernow :)

 

The pool isn’t a big deal for us (not sure we’ve been in one on any of the cruises we’ve been on) but this cruise would be different as we wouldn’t really be leaving the ship much (if at all) so that’s good to know.

 

really appreciate you answering :)

We were on deck 13. I do like shade so worked well. 13119. Loved the space.

Nice. The balcony looks a lot deeper than the one we had in 12346.

There are several sets

lime this one - view along the side of the ship is good. 31A73B81-08CA-4B47-B75B-E8F25D384AC9.thumb.jpeg.e8267344c0dc08f51f812f0b1dc4021a.jpeg

And a good view of the balconies below too! 😂. They actually look extra deep as well, are they deck 8 Bella’s?

We always try and go for these bigger balconies for the space but we haven't had one with a big overhang before but looking at your pic Stu it's not bad at all. Can't wait to get on this ship!😀

Oooh, she seems to be on the move again now (according to the Boat Watch app).

Yes we left Liverpool at 7 with a big firework show. They made a big thing of thanking Liverpool for having us.🤣

 

Just having dinner with a beautiful view.

Beautiful view. If you get the chance, could you please say hello to the cruise director, Gene Young from Mary Ann and Tom Beckham.  Have known him for a long time.

I was worried about giving up a balcony too but having experienced YC I'd do it again in a heartbeat for this type of cruise (maybe not in the Caribbean but would consider paying for a YC balcony now).

I wouldn't worry about it being too posh, it's not at all stuffy and the staff are lovely and friendly. At the moment most of the other passengers have done the upgrade too!

 

I agree entirely. Having experienced 3 cruises, totalling 33 nights in Yacht Club, we have never experienced or considered it to be stuffy at any level. Just populated by normal folks, enjoying a premium plus (but not ultimate luxury) experience.

 

I heartily recommend it, even in the inside cabin, as you have full access to this amazing enclave.

Agreed. Yacht Club is certainly not stuffy or snobby - after all, they do let me in.

We haven't actually spoken to him yet but will look out for him.

 

I like his style, a bit different from most CDs, very American but toned down a bit for us Brits 😄

Mark was just reading our morning newspaper and spotted that we've made the news 😅

It seems quite ridiculous to prevent you from docking, considering the protocols in place. On Saturday we took the ferry from Belfast to Stranraer, no tests required and proceeded to drive freely through Scotland to England.

It's foggy out this morning so everyone is inside. Galleria Virtuosa (I'm finally using the right name) actually has a few people around.

Thanks a lot for that information.  Does that mean if you are only on for 5 nights you would have to pay the same, or is that the cheapest package coverage for the length of your cruise (7 nights), with access for perhaps more devices costing more.

 

We are only on the ship for 5 nights.

 

Also, is there  much difference in price if pre buy?

 

I originally paid £28 for 4 nights so imagine 5n would be under £40.

Yes been trying for last hour


it appears to be down for everyone including if you ring 119 they also cannot submit

 

however if you go back to the start and select your submitting your test for your job it allows you to submit and you get the usual email.

 

this worked an hour ago after a mass panic of what the hell would I do for Saturday.

 

can’t imagine the government can sort IT issues out overnight
