First let me say that I agree with ridingarrett, these message boards are a godsend cause I too have learned quite a bit info about what to expect on a cruise. Most brochures tout the romantic angle of stepping out into the open sky and seeing the stars. My question is this: Since the ship lights are on, how well can you actually see the stars. I know if you are standing away from city lights you can see the whole night sky before you but as long as there are lights you can't, so how much of the night sky can you see??
YOu will love seeing the stars and the moon. On a full moon it reflects so far across the water it;s amazing. It's breath taking! If you want some tips - check out my web site and read the tips and first timer pages.
