  1. I think some of us - me included - get in to the habit of posting on maybe one or two forums - probably with a larger membership than this one - and don't log in regularly to this one. I don't feel that I am/have been intimidated by anyone and I'm not sure what Fudge means about a "suspicious undertone". I have always felt that this is a friendly forum - occasionally I have read a few people sniping at someone else but I have just ignored that. I will try to log in regularly - and will contribute if I have something to say that I think is relevant or may be useful.

    Bad Publicity

    Are members concerned about the bad publicity P and O are receiving at the moment. Last week there was a report about a lady being put off a ship in Mexico as she was ill. It was alleged that she was told "this is a hotel not a hospital". She died before getting back home. This week there is an article about a couple being ill with chest infections and norovirus for 18 days on Adonia. They came off the ship in Barbados, managing their own luggage, with the husband being transferred to a clinic. The report said that their cabin was made up for the next passengers without being fumigated.

    Bad Publicity

    Just imagine what the publicity would have been if the Doctor had agreed to the family's request and allowed the patient to stay on the ship and then she had died when on board. There would have been an outcry - I can just see the Headlines - Doctor failed to get the patient to hospital which would be fully equipped to deal with the situation - Would this patient have died? All the Doctor can do is what he/she feels is in the patient's best interest. I think P&O were dammed whatever was decided. As for someone cancelling a cruise because of a one-sided report I can't believe anyone would

  5. I agree with you in that I believe no-one has to justify booking any particular type of cabin. There is nothing wrong in saying that "For them" the cabin is just for sleeping - it's just not that for us! It's what I said in my previous posting - it's all a matter of choice and all anyone can say is what is their preference. So no-one should have to justify saying a cabin is just for sleeping any more than I should have to justify that a balcony is an essential for us. It's great that there is so much choice - and it should be possible for anyone to say what their preference is without anyone

  7. Yes there are two sides to every story and all the assumptions are being made after only hearing one of them. In the first case not P&O but a qualified doctor made the decision to transfer the patient as they thought it in the patients interest. If anyone disagrees with their decision I trust they are a qualified doctor and in full possession of all the facts. With the second case it should be remembered that Norovirus usually only lasts for 48 hours which is why it is known as the '48 hour vomiting bug'. To have this and chest infections for 18 days seems somewhat excessive and perhap
