    elvis got a reaction from A2Z in Table Size? Do You Have A Preference?   
    I prefer 4 or 6 as my husband is slightly hard of hearing and finds to many people talking at once i.e. on a table for 8 too difficult.

    Good old Saga do not charge anything for either your own tablets etc, even the ships computers in the libraries are free.

    Yes they do but they are not so much in evidence as some lines. Glad you enjoyed your cruise. I was on a table in Heligan Restaurant which I found excellent. Shame it was so foggy on the last day although it gave me time to start writing my article. Do you remember this song from the 'Crew Show', I loved it.

    I wish someone would do those things for me, instead of making me feel old and decrepit it would make me feel valued and cosseted.

    Am I sympathetic to their predicament? In a word, No. How can you feel sorry for cruise lines that according to their annual returns and stock market ratings are making lots of money.
    On the question of cabin choice many people decide according to itinerary. Lots of sea days, have a balcony. Port hopping, have an inside.

    Just read the following in the news, in the sixties a man who could not afford his flight back to Australia from Britain unbelievably made the choice to post himself.  The box used was 5ft x 3ft x 2.5ft and he survived the three day journey back home via France and India.  Obviously with the measures in force now he wouldn’t get away with it, but it’s hard to imagine how he did even back then?
    So if you think your cabin is too small it could be so much worse.

    Skolden is a quiet place but very beautiful if you just want to wander about.

    Once when on the fjords I went on deck to take photos whilst hubby took them from the balcony, He missed a submarine surfacing then going under again as he was on the wrong side of the ship, also don't forget unless you are able to get a stern balcony you will be seeing the same views going into the fjord as coming out again.

    I have only sailed with P&O and Saga mainly because I do not fly anymore.  At the moment  I am sticking with Saga as they have a great service ethic, and because they are smaller ships, which is my other preference, they are able to go into smaller ports that the larger ships cannot do.

    A married couple in the early sixties are celebrating their 40th anniversary in a lovely intimate restaurant.
    A good fairy, so entranced by their enduring love appears at their table and says " for the love you have shown over the years I grant each of you one wish".
    The wife looks lovingly at her man and says " I would love to see the world with my lovey husband". The fairy nods, waves her wand and whoosh, two world cruise tickets fall onto the table.
    " now" says the fairy " what is your wish sir?" The husband shakes his head, looks at both of them and says, "I'm sorry but a chance like this will never come again so, I wish I had a wife 30 years younger."
    The wife and fairy are in shock but the fairy has to uphold her promise so she waves her wand and whoosh, the husband becomes 92.

    I get mine included with my Saga cruise booking, used Saga when we used to go with P & O and never had any problems covering pre-existing medical conditions of which unfortunately I have many including heart failure and diabetes treated with Insulin.  One thing I would advise any one to check on is if their insurance covers cruises as not all do.
