Default Can You Actually See The Shining Stars??

Aloha,

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??

Even with the ship lights on, you will be able to star gaze because the night sky will still be dark. It is breathtaking on a clear night to look up to the heavens.

We plan on our next cruise being with a full moon. The stars are awesome!

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.

I would also like to add that one morning you should get up before sunrise, grab a seat, and watch the horizon. It is just as spectacuar.

On our last cruise it was really hard to see the stars due to the lights on the ships decks.....If you can find a "dark" area then it may be better but our star gazing didn't work
