Most of the ships do a virtual tour on the internet, failing this you could contact the ships direct via internet and they will advise.Hope this help.

Check the cruise companies websites, a lot of them have videos of cabins, public rooms, etc. They will give you some idea of what to expect. I don't know of any company at the moment that does "open days", security concerns probably dictate this.

I haven't heard of any open day visits to cruise ships - try before you buy. They are usually getting on with their itineraries as not sailing probably means losing money. Cruise ships are security conscious these days and you need a security pass to board and passengers aren't allowed visitors on board due to security restrictions. Williams, Morpet.

Princess cruises offer lunches onboard some of their ships. This year I was offered a chance to visit Golden and Sea princess. I am a past customer, but they did mention there would be chances for new customers also. Keep an eye on the website if you fancy Princess cruises.

Recently had a look around the Island Escape whilst it was docked in Palma-Tuesday. My husband and I had been on the Star and wanted to compare the two ships. We went into Palma by local bus from Magaluf had a guided tour of the ship lunch included for 12 if I recall. Board 12 and had to leave at around 5pm. Presumably if you can visit the Escape, could also visit the star on Saturday. Reps at the Hotels arrange this 4 us ,take Passports.

Yep folks if you should stand on any coastline local to you should see many ships. they are easy to recognise, they are wide at the top and taper in at the bottom { V } where the water is suspending the ship in an upright position, NOTE: should you see one the other way up /\ do not board it. Watch out for one called Aurora that was lanched a few years ago earned this reputaion Aurora = Always Under Repair Often Rarely Abroad. Hope you find what you are looking fo.

Yes there is, which you can usually find by visiting the relavent cruise/shipping companies website, then after clicking on the link to their ships you'll be able to take a "virtual tour" around the respective ship you're due to sail on, alternatively some of the companies also show videos that you can watch online by clicking on the particular link on their sites.

Obtain a copy of Douglass Ward's Berlitz Guide to Cruising and Cruise ships. In addition to the 'virtual tours' Ward gives an independent opinion of the good and bad points of cruise ships.
