    Tom Cruise got a reaction from Falmouthgirl in 12 Night Iberia Cruise with P&O Cruises Ventura N622   
    Hi CG - it's great to read that you also had an excellent time on Ventura.

     

    Yes, the kid's clubs were very strict with age groups and also allowing parents in with the children. We had to sign in as visitors to go in with our daughter. I think it's good that they do actually stick to the rules, especially when our children or grandchildren are involved. They do a much better job at this than they do stopping people reserving the sunbeds!

     

    It's a shame about the pools. My son (nearly 7) can swim but at times I did see him struggling. To be fair he spent hours in the pool and it must be tiring when you can't stand. My daughter (nearly 3) loved the pool but I had to be in there with her all of the time. 

     

    When we went on Oceana we used the buffet a lot but on Ventura we found it easier in the main dining room. The kids were very well fed, with breakfast, pizzas and burgers for lunch (on sea days), ice creams, snacks from the children's teatime and then an evening meal in the main dining room. 

     

    I wish our bar bill was a quarter of the size

    We have just returned from a 6 night cruise taking in St Peter Port, La Rochelle and Bilbao, we took out amost 5 year old granddaughter, unfortunately she ddin't enjoy the kids club she was put in with the 2-4 year olds,  she was 5 a few days after our return, they wouldn't consider putting her in with the 5-8 year olds so she went every where with us.
     
    We never use the self service but this time we  went breakfast , lunch and dinner and sometimes children's teatime, the waiters were wonderful and the food was varied and plentiful, I agree with you on the depth of the swimming pools, we used the larger of the children's pools about 4ft come rain or shine , we saw the one all singing and dancing show in the Arena which she was fascinated by it  [ we had seen it many times before].
    Also spent most of our time in the Havana, watching 'Dusty Springfield, Adele and Olly Muirs where we could also dance with her.
     
    We took here to the sailaways ate burgers , pizzas and ice creams and had a birthday cake for grampy at the afternoon tea in the dining room, we had a splendid family time and I saw all this through a child's eyes  no relaxing  full on cruise and a bar bill a quarter of the size we normally have, she has now started school and still talks about the Ventura.CG

    Tom Cruise got a reaction from bac in Why do people moan about using the hand gel onboard   
    This type of person will more than likely moan about anything and everything. If they don't realise that this procedure is for the good of the ship then they are just plain ignorant. It's probably the same people that don't think it's necessary to wash their hands after using the toilet. Imagine the moan they'd have if they were locked in their cabin for 3 days... in fact that's probably the best place for them

    Nice to see everyone praising the Bolsover team! Having been in the computer industry I understand the problems which, understandably, cannot be resolved unless the right people are told about them.
    Excellent work, Bolsover, to get a fix so quickly. I, for one, enjoy using the site even if there are occassional glitches (hence Captain Kidd II).
    Dst87 - if you do not like the site then do not use it. It does get boring seeing the same names always moaning.

    For me ships such Thomson Celebration, Fred Olsen Black Watch, Costa neoRomantica, Swan Hellenic Minerva fall into this category. I’m pretty sure many will disagree and prefer a classic style ship.

    Personally I love a modern, streamline looking ship such as Carnival Breeze, Celebrity Reflection, Cunard Queen Elizabeth, Seabourn Quest. I also like the bigger ships, again many will disagree.

    I'd just like to congratulate Bolsover Cruise Club on their exciting Meadowhall news!
     
    Meadowhall is a large shopping centre in Sheffield and I've just read that Bolsover are about to open secondary premises there. For anybody that's not heard of Meadowhall here's a link to their website - http://www.meadowhall.co.uk/
     
    This is an excellent achievement, so here's a well done from me!

    Hi Ron
     
    As OWT says the photograph will need to be reduced in size. If you have any photo editing programs on your computer you can use them. Alternatively there are plenty of websites that will resize your photo instantly, like here - http://www.imageoptimizer.net/
     
    Remember not to overwrite the original photo with the smaller version. Suggest saving the smaller version in a different location or with a different file name.
     
    Hope that helps.

    Morning Ron,
    If you use one of the photo web sites like Fuji then you can reduce the size of the photo to one that is acceptable to the website you are trying to post it on. Even though it is taken with what you describe as an ordinary digital camera it is still probably too large for many web sites.

    Bolsover do provide the option to search fly-cruise or cruise only on their search page, it's in the drop down menu labelled 'Cruise Type' - http://www.bolsovercruiseclub.com/advanced-search/. Also if you make a search from their home page they provide a refine option at the top of the page which allows you to filter out the fly cruises.

    Think all cruise lines now provide Wi-Fi, but as Duncan said it's expensive and not very reliable.
     
    When I sailed with Celebrity we had no telephone or internet connection for three days. It didn’t bother me but I know other passengers were stressing. I don't mind being cut off from the outside world while on holiday, that's what I go for
