    linzi1907 got a reaction from Oldworldtraveller in P&O 2019 - Oceana Based In The UAE   
    Having just recently returned from a 7 night Arabian Gulf cruise on board Vision of the Seas with RCI, I would love to do this Itinerary again. Although I have to agree Khasab isn't a great port with not much to offer. I got an absolute bargain on this cruise paying only £650pp for the cruise, flights and transfers, I would happily pay this again, although P&O's prices are quite a bit more and only 3 days longer!

    Nice to see awards going to companies that truly deserve them - can honesty say 'everyone' we have dealt with at Bolsover cruise club have always been very professional and helpful - something that is rare in companies of late - well done

    linzi1907 got a reaction from WAVES in Dubai   
    So, I have just booked my first cruise with RCI on board Vision of the Seas for March 2017 for the Dubai sailing....very excited! I have always wanted to holiday in Dubai, so saw this Itinerary and thought it would be a perfect way of seeing Dubai and having the cruise element also. Any recommendations/advice on places to see/visit whilst in Dubai & Oman?
     
    Thanks in advance!

    How old is the child/children? It is difficult knowing what to recommend without knowing their ages.

    It changes things a lot when you're travelling with children. I have a little girl to and I wouldn't consider doing half the excursions I've done in the past now.

    I have been told the Pisa with boat and little train is good for children and older people who can't walk far. And she may enjoy the little train. May be worth finding out if there are any nice safe beaches close to any of the ports always popular with toddlers.

    Good afternoon Linzi.
     
    let me get the ball rolling for you in Genoa.
     
    There will be a selection of HoHo buses parked right outside the cruise terminal...
     

     
    Make sure you get off at   Pont Embriaco....
     

     
     
    to see the maritime area and Piazza Ferrrari...
     

     
    for the more famous historical buildings.
     
    Finally the Pazza Della Vittoria: take the children to the top of the garden where I'm stood, and you'll have no trouble with then that evening...

    I think that as regards to difficult questions this one must be towards the "top of the tree".
    All of these ports of call are first class cultural destinations, but as regards to being of any interest to children they are "non-starters".
    I would admit that this holiday is for you and enjoy it the best you can, and then possibly consider your next holiday with regards your two year old daughter.

    I would consider using a creche if one is available on shore days and then take half day excursions yourself, where possible. Florence will be difficult but you coukd go to Pisa but the rest should be ok. I am sure the 2 year old would prefer that.

    Yes the kids club is open in the evening. For under fives, there is the night nursery where you can leave your child for the evening. They give you a pager to contact you if there is a problem. I believe the night nursery is open until as late as 2am although most people will pick up their children long before then.
    Full details here

    I like the service & all the staff at Bolsover, they have always looked after my Aunty and now look after me.  For me that is worth a lot I am very happy with them so don't see the point in going to any other agent.

    They’re odd things birthdays. First you get the anticipation, then the excitement when the big day finally arrives and then, well, you just feel a bit…old.
     
    When we realised that 2015 would mark the 10th birthday of the Bolsover Cruise Centre, we decided to mark the occasion in the best way we know how; no not with copious amounts of champagne, but with a facelift!

    linzi1907 reacted to AFC04/03 in Britannia - Wow!   
    I dont think its intended for you to spend more on board, think its just that its more inviting to explore a ship of this size than sit in your cabin, which whether its 150 or 350 ft you are still only going to sleep and get ready in.

    linzi1907 got a reaction from Mulcture in Britannia - Wow!   
    I have to say I was lucky enough to stay overnight on Board Britannia last weekend and what a Beautiful Ship she is!
    From the moment you step on board, she really does have the 'WOW' Factor - The Atrium, is by far one of the nicest I have seen.
    Having a little girl I was curious as to what the Children's Play Area was like on board and I was impressed with this also, plenty of facilities to suit different child ages.
    I was shocked at the size of the cabins, they were smaller than what I had imagined but beautifully decorated.
    I like the modern and contemporary design and style of the ship - particulary the cabin numbers outside the cabin that are lit up on a plaque - very good idea!
    The bars and public area's again are great - I have to say the Glass House was probably my favourite!
    I am booked on Azura in November, but im very tempted to change this to Britannia she really is that nice.

    Hi  I'm not sure whether the comments are for real or urban (ocean) myths.  Just to play the devil's advocate as a Northern why would somebody from the wealthy and sophisticated South chose to sail on RCI was Butlins full that week.

    1) How Sheryl has the nerve to sit there judging the contestants sing live when she goes on stage and mimes, its riddiculous
     
    and
     
    2) John Legend was uber amazing, and i dont particulary like him if honest but uber good (and he sang live Sheryl)
