    OOps someone is not happy ,myself I have always found the majority of Richards posts very informative and his photos very good so why would someone bring up the past!!!.
    This is the one and only forum I have ever been a member of and do not wish to be told of previous forums or there members,we all try to keep this forum friendly so why bring bad blood across to this one

    I happened to glance at my profile earlier and saw that it is just over a year since I joined this forum.
    That gave me the idea to ask a question of myself.
    What is it that i like personally about the Bolsover Cruise Club Forum.
    The answer as easy.
    I think it's about the members who generally are a most discerning group of cruisers, most with considerable knowledge of life in a cruising environment.
    I could of course  add to that by saying that the majority also come across as not relying on the forum for their social existence. That is what makes it so much better: we pop in and out, have our say, and contribute just as much as we see fit.
    What's your take?

    Bit disappointing this year, I think they are scraping the barrel with the so called 'celebrities'
    Although I can't wait for the dumb ass that is essex bird to get into the camp so the public can vote her in for every challenge, which, I am praying for every night!
    Now that will be good viewing!!

    I read the report in the Daily Mail and this is the first time I have heard anything about it!  Like most articles that the Mail produce I can understand why anyone travelling there may be concerned.  My understanding is this has been going on since last December, putting into perspective the volume of travellers that will have gone to the Caribbean on land based as well as cruise holidays I can guarantee if this was a major problem we would of heard more about it before now, and the World Health Organization would be involved?  Let’s be honest the media love a story like this.  I am not dismissing anyone that has come in contact with this virus, but it would never stop me travelling to the Caribbean and what better way to see it than on the comfort of a cruise ship.  If anyone is really concerned surely the first point of call would be your Doctors?

    vamp23 reacted to RiverSong in Gurantee Cabins - Is It Worth It?   
    I know when my Aunty called Bolsover about a cruise recently she was offered both options with P&O, and the Saver fare was explained in full.  If you chose to pay the lower price and are not happy with the cabin when it is allocated why should the operator change the cabin?  If your very flexible the Saver fares are really good value, but not suitable for everyone.

    I dont think you can entirely blame P&O, if the flight operator can no longer offer them a service what should they do stamp their foot and shout really loud, they have taken steps to secure an alternate flight and make sure everyone can get to the ship, after all its only the flight to get you to your holiday.  Chill out and look forward to the Rum cocktails on a caribbean beach

    vamp23 reacted to Bolsover Cruise Club in Bolsover Staff Run For Charity   
    Bolsover Cruise Club staff members Sarah, Linzi, Laura and Adam have swapped their court shoes (sorry Adam!) for running shoes as they prepare for a 5km fun run in order to raise money for a charity that is close to our hearts, Reuben's Retreat.
    The Asics Neon Run in Leeds will be held on 18 October 2014 at Temple Newsam Park. This unique night-time fun run will host fascinating on-course neon zones engulfed by black lights, lasers, strobes, dancers and DJ's to keep the runners going strong.
    Our team of runners decided to take part in a bid to raise as much money as possible for Reuben’s Retreat, an incredible charity providing a retreat in the North West of England to relieve the distress of families who have suffered bereavement of a child or have a child suffering from a life limiting or life threatening illness.
    The charity was created following the tragic passing of Reuben Graham, who had a rare brain tumour and needed surgery. Sadly Reuben passed away, a moment in time that inspired parents Nicola, Mike and four year old brother Isaac to set up ‘Reuben’s Retreat’, a place where other families with sick children can build memories. Mike and Nicola Graham were determined that something positive should emerge from their grief and as a charity extremely close to our heart, it is our aim to raise as much money for the cause as possible. You can read more about Reuben's Retreat here >
