  1. Smaller ships if we are cruising alone, they seem to more friendly and much more relaxed. If we are travelling with children, the bigger ships appeal as there is much more for them to do and they are better catered for, in my opinion.
  2. I agree entirely with sammy sun, having done set dining at both early and late sittings and freedom dining (forced on us by four people on a table for eight. Can take bad manners, to a certain extent but draw the line at offensive comments to fellow table companions) and would never go back to set dining and like the fact that not only can we dine to suit our schedule but like the fact that if you meet other people and get along, it's nice that you can have a meal with them, a table to suit and at whatever time suits.

  3. Hello Kevin, we have only used this service once before and we had no complaints. However we have just booked with them to travel from Grimsby pick up point, so I would be interested to hear of anyones experiences, or tips, as it was some years ago we first travelled with them.

  6. Hello On all the cruises I taken over the Christmas period, this is the first time I have heard this question. It is not, in my experience, the norm to give your cabin steward a christmas gift. In any event what do you buy a complete stranger, are they male or female and what religion are they, would a gift offend? My suggestion is this, say to your cabin steward on Christmas Eve, "as it is Christmas Day tomorrow, please don't do my cabin, I am quite happy to make my own bed etc and the sooner you finish your work, the sooner you will get to do what you want to do". This has always been re
