I did most of my research on the www.cruisecritic.com very good for all the info you need, I originally booked cabin 9200 family ocean view but again after reading reviews I soon found cabin 8200 was much bigger for the same price! I will coment on this when I see it.
Total including prepaid tips £2990 for 5
Free car parking at Southampton.
So now I am reading all the reviews to get as much info as possible like drinks packages what free and what's not!
