I recently had a crazy weekend where I was invited on two ship tours. The first being on the Caribbean Princess and the second being on the Celebrity Eclipse.

It was my first time on a Princess ship and first time on a Celebrity ship, oh and my first ship tour! Very much a weekend of first.

But, which did I prefer? Take a look here to find out.

I would really appreciate a subscribe! I have 3 cruises coming up in the next year and would love to bring you guys with me.

I filmed vlogs onboard both ship tours which you can see here:

Caribbean Princess

Celebrity Eclipse

Have you ever been on either of these ships? Let me know in the comments. (Let me know if I made the right choice too!)


Guaranteed Cabins – Cruise1st

I recently wrote a post for Cruise1st about guaranteed cabins and why I usually buy one.  In the post I take you through:

What is a guaranteed cabin?

A guaranteed cabin is a cabin booked without a specific cabin allocation. Booking a guaranteed cabin, for example a guaranteed inside will ensure that you receive a cabin in that category or higher. Your cabin will be allocated to you prior to your cruise but you have no say on the cabin’s position or deck. This contrasts with booking an assigned cabin where you can choose the specific cabin when booking. Guaranteed cabins are usually booked for two reasons: a lower price and the possibility of an upgrade.

What are the benefits of booking one?

  • Price reduction
  • Possibility of an upgrade

When is the cabin usually assigned?

  • Possibly months before your cruise
  • Possibly a few days before you cruise

What are the drawbacks of choosing a guaranteed cabin?

  • A ship in a less than desirable location (low down, end of ship,noisey position etc)

To read the full article please click here. I honestly am a big fan of the Guaranteed cabin and do usually book a guaranteed inside cabin when I cruise. Price is the main motivator for me when booking a cruise and when booking a guaranteed cabin the worst-case scenario is that you end up with what you paid for, doesn’t sound too bad to me!
