  1. Thank you all just as I thought. will stay in Villefranche nice place Ian
  2. Hi has anyone done the cruise that has F1 monaco on the agenda? If so do P+O DO SHUTTLES TO M IanONACO FROM VILLEFRANCHE as I am not able to stand or sit all day but would like to go into Monaco for a shot time to enjoy the atmosphere.
  3. Thank you now I know how the system now works Ian
  4. Does the new rules on gratuities mean that they are included in the fare?
  5. Can you just go ashore in Santorini/ or is it advisable to do a tour. We are both not as fit as we were. Ian
  6. Has anyone been on Oceana since refit or is it finished? Ian

  8. Been cruising with P&O for 25 years and are thinking next one will be the last. We had serious concerns o our last cruise and after six weeks after writing still awaiting answer.Since Carnival took over it has been a downward spiral. This may be the last straw.Ian
  9. Heard le club changing to speciality restaurant.could Also loosing cafe Jardin (Hope not)
  10. Do Alla tours much easier than ship ones. they do all the paper work and use 16 seater mini buses and you have no queuing at venues and sometimes in before official opening times. You book online and don`t pay until the second day. Ian
  11. Just returned from Oceana fly cruise Malta to Venice etc. We found the air con on F deck completely ineffective. Engineers appeared with a laptop and took the control box of the wall and tried to do some adjustments to no avail. Having checked with other passengers on the deck and with a friend who sailed in December I think P&O SHOULD DO BETTER THAN THIS. I would appreciate any comments as I have raised this problem with P&O head office don`t suppose it will do me any good as they seem to treat long time cruisers with contempt {25 years] Ian
  12. Would highly recommend Also tours in ST PETERSBURG. They take care of everything using mini buses 16 passengers . You only pay on the second day.Just look them up on the internet. Ian
  13. Viking do free WIFI for all passengers even if it is your first trip with them. Come on P&O get a grip. Ian
  14. Has anyone had problems at Glasgow airport with hand luggage with Jet2? Only 5kg and the size off the case is very small.We have hand cases we have been using for over 30years and I worried that they may struggle to fit but have seen none smaller. Ian
  15. I would favourably compare anything on Viking with any ship I have been on. Almost 30 cruises from Canberra to Azura. The whole ambiance is so much more relaxed. No airline style security getting on or off. The Mateus tour for example they spit us into groups off 10 instead off trying to get every one through as one group things like that make a huge difference. Cold drinks and refreshing towels on return from trips etc. I could go on but I think you will get the picture Ian
  16. Going on this one from Glasgow .Beware the hand luggage allowance is only 6kg. Have queried this with P&O that is their contracted rate on this flight. I wish there was more consistency with airline they wind me up. Ian
  17. Just back from a fabulous cruise on Viking Torgil. Weather 29-30c no rain . Fabulous crew and beautiful river valley every thing so quiet when sailing you could hear the birds singing alone the river bank. That was our second Viking cruise and already looking to next year. After sailing with ocean ships I think we well stay with Viking and forgo the big ships. Ian
  18. Thank you this is for our Golden Wedding anniversary. Did the Danube last year our first river cruise. What a change from ocean cruising started on the Canberra. Ian
  19. Anyone on this cruise 26th May? We fly from Edinburgh. Ian
