  1. Hi All, Just a quick note to say that as a result of the new rules which came into place on 13 January 2018, we will no longer be charging ANY fees for credit card payments. Unlike some other travel agents, we won’t be adding any booking or admin fees to cover the cost of processing card transactions. If you would like more information on the changes to credit card fees, check out our recent blog post here. Thanks, Bolsover Cruise Club

    Cruise Check List

    Not sure if you noticed David but Marella allow travel irons to be taken on board. This is lifted from a document on their website: Personal grooming devices such as hair dryers, travel irons, curling irons, hair straighteners and shavers are permitted when used with proper caution. However, if such devices are determined to pose a hazard, they will be removed and returned on the last day of the cruise prior to disembarkation.

  3. All hotel venues whether afloat or ashore are susceptible to noro and try their best to ensure best hygiene practice at all times, and extra special when there is an outbreak.

Personal hygiene like washing your hands regularly especially after visiting the toilet will help to reduce and stop outbreaks occurring.

  4. You will have been "conned" by nobody those were the T&Cs you agreed when you booked the cruise. All cruise lines and holiday companies require balance to be paid in average 12+ weeks before travel so Carnival or P&O are no different than anyone else.

  5. I have a large wash bag, which I top up after every trip, in which I keep medication, plasters, paracetamol, Piriton, anti septic cream, Imodium, needle and cotton, glasses screwdriver, mini torch, eye wash, cotton buds, miniature toothpaste, deodorant and aftershave. I used to take a travel clock but like many items my iPhone has taken over their job. Cuff links go in the pocket of the DJ and collar stiffeners are put into the shirt collar. As irons are banned I take a product called "Crease Release". Spray it on and hang the garment up, creases disappear. Never take hangers, just

  6. Bet it won`t save us. They cannot surcharge for credit cards but they can charge an admin or booking fee if they apply it to all booking payment methods. As someone who always pays with a debit card to avoid CC charges I`m guessing I`ll end up paying more too now!

  7. Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and would just like to say thanks for all of your help and advice, it's lovely to know there's friendly people out there who will take the time to help us land lubbers! Having read what you've told me I think we'll probably not take a pre-paid package, although we as a group are fairly big drinkers I'm expecting we will go ashore most days so will only be drinking on the ship late afternoons and evenings, if we put our on board spending towards our drinks bill I think we'll be better off not taking the pre-paid drinks package. I'll try to remem

    P&o Gratuities

    You can always exercise your option to go to reception and ask for the gratuities to be removed from your account, then you can reward in the old fashioned way. This will then ensure that the staff you want to reward receive the amount that you consider appropriate to the service you have received..
