  1. It’s been very quiet on here over the past week, I’m just wondering if everyone is ok. Perhaps you are all avoiding the rain and are on a ship sailing off into the sunset somewhere... Anyways I hope all is well... PP
  2. According to icruise smoking is allowed on deck 16 aft port side near sunset bar, deck 7 aft near live lounge and deck 7 near java if you want to avoid them. Looked on p and o but their searches are a bit naff.
  3. £1200 each for auto grats is an awful lot of nights on a cruise....
  4. This might seem an odd one but check with your house insurance that your house will be covered for the duration of the cruise. Just having someone going in to check it sometimes isn’t enough.
  5. They probably can’t afford the mortgage payments on the new boats!
  6. P and O used to do themed cruises and music cruises which were good and prices weren’t that extortionate but to go on a cruise with Jane McDonald would be my idea of....... well let’s say that they would have to give it to me and even then I might think twice.... just my opinion as I can’t stand her singing...
  7. Possibly not. You can always ask the cabin steward if they could be stored. They used to do that but not sure if they still do.
  8. Just remember to check with your travel insurance that they cover Cuba if you do go. There appears to be some companies who don’t cover it...
  9. I’ve not watched it yet due to her screeching and won’t start now...😱
  10. Thamks Sinbad... I saw it on the news at lunchtime I didn’t know when I posted.
  11. I hope those injured make a speedy recovery. I think most of us have been on a ship in dodgy weather, although thankfully mostly calm, but it does bring home the fact that anything can happen at sea. I wonder though, how do they get reunited with all their personal stuff, or would it all get dumped....
  12. Cruises used to be all inclusive, well I thought so, but now if you want something different it has to be paid for, even room service. I think it would be nice that if a person wanted to eat in a specialty restaurant then they should get a percentage back as on board credit. It’s all about money grabbing these days...
  13. Whilst I did like the chocoholics buffet/walk through what I didn’t like was the way people used to pile their plates high with various chocolate fancies, and then leave half of them untouched. Watching some folk eating wasn’t a pleasant sight either... just my view 🤓
  14. Sometimes you don’t know how bad it is until you have watched it...🙃
  15. Whilst I like most types of music the thing I enjoyed the most was playing Bach’s Tocata and Fuge on a Church organ full belt. That was a few years ago lol... i cant relate to grunge or rap... not really music in my view...
  16. It might not depend on whether we can supply the demand but more on whether we have the spare cash depending on how our economy goes and the way cruise prices are increasing.
  17. Even the healthiest of people can catch something on a ship whether it be the dreaded Norovirus or the colds that spread through the ship. Personally I wouldn’t take that risk in her position even if she could get insurance which may be highly unlikely. If she wasn’t covered and the necessity arose the bill could be astronomical....
  18. Aurora I think seems slightly smaller than Arcadia and in many ways is a nicer ship especially with its tiered back, unless they alter it during the refit. ive been saying for years that singles should get the extra obc but they never listen to what passengers think.
  19. When I lived in the states there were discount coupons for various stores in the papers most days and not just for the cheap and nasty stores. Managed to save a fortune and you didn’t have to wait for points to add up like most cards in the uk.
  20. One would imagine that with different nationalities on board, therefore, different plugs on board that they would sell the correct adapters or at least be able to provide one. If not then they should provide the relevant information on the website.
  21. God help the future of our country if we have folk who can’t do simple addition!
  22. Shouldn’t that be ‘I don’t see the point’ lol...🤪 i thought that that this topic could have been put to bed by now...
  23. I dread to think what size any single cabins will be. They don’t appear to be big enough to swing the proverbial cat in at the best of times, probably like a rabbit hutch now and they will still charge extra for those booking them...
  24. And still it goes on. Gratuities are going to be included so there is no need to pay anything if a person doesn’t want to or think there is any need. It doesn’t matter how much staff earn as no doubt the cruise line has found a way to make sure that they are happy and no doubt in one way or another it will be the passengers who bear the brunt of it, whether by increased fares or fluid prices. Costs of cruises have already increased and until this comes in we won’t know the outcomes.
  25. Just had a quick look, not much choice as usual with P&O. Iona itinerary is very boring
