  1. We booked her last cruise to the North Cape some time ago now so it is fortuitous that it will be her last. Will be sorry to see her go as we have never experienced any of the problems that have been written about on many forum's
  2. On our last cruise we specifically asked the waiters and they were quite clear that they were allowed to keep any tips given to them personally.
  3. On the other site I am Silver Surfer 2010
  4. You will be most welcome. This is a nice webcam to view during their daylight hours, it is showing lost of snow and the forecast is for more to come this week and the other one is the current weather http://portalta.borealiswebcam360.com/ https://www.wunderground.com/weather/no/alta This is the site used by others https://boards.cruisecritic.co.uk/showthread.php?t=2333681&page=19
  5. A Meet & Greet meeting has been arranged for Saturday 10th March in Andersons between 10-30 and 12-00 everyone is welcome and some senior officers will be present as well. Understand that up to 75 have indicated that they will be coming. This has been arranged through another forum/FB but if anyone is interested you are welcome to come along, it's always good to be able to be able to chat to fellow passengers during cruise
  6. As suggested by Sharon, here are my tips as given to Fred Olsen passengers last March!It is much better to wear a number of thin layers than just a few thick ones. The air trapped in between thin layers warms to your body’s temperature and acts as valuable insulation. Make sure your clothes fit well and that some of your layers are of differing sizes so that you can still move comfortably….have a trial run before you go.If you are travelling in a heated coach for an hour, you don’t want all your clothes on…but how easy will it be to add the final layers, in a coach in the dark?In cold conditio
  7. Northern Lights watching - things I wish I had known before I went!
  8. Of course the auto tips comes off your On Board Credit so that you start earning discount on your purchases earlier than if you delete the tips and pay dirextly
  9. You cannot get away from the fact that it is STEALING and therefore the cruise line would have every right to charge for it. The vouchers system used in a lot of the hotels would work and you have to hand in your voucher at the end of your holiday or be charged.
  10. As far as I am concerned I would rather loose £50 that 15% of the cost of a cruise (if it came to that) if I had to cancel for whatever reason. It's these draconian employerts that are the problem not P & O
  11. In some of the Caribbean ports depending on your age - we found our 'bus pass' was equally acceptable
  12. Friends of ours are just back and say that the refurb is very good and the change in menu is a vast improvement. It takes all kinds but I am really looking forward to our cruise to the Med on 23 April and to get first hand knowledge of all the improvements
  13. Definitely not a rumour and 2017/18 cruises are going on sale from 7/8th December. Still not for me but what is going to go to make way for her?
  14. cricket and tennis in the nets up high
