    HORRAY!!
    At last, Ventura doing their 14nt Med cruise from regional airports. It makes such a difference to fly from somewhere on your doorstep!.
    Been told about 10 airports to choose from inc East Mids, Newcastle, Bournemouth etc...
    Good on you P&O!!

    i sailed on the Quest in October and yes I found the Captain very friendly & approachable. All the staff were superb and nothing was too much trouble.
    To be honest I have yet to go on a cruise and find an issue with the staff. In general they are always willing to go out of their way to help out and really help to make the cruise special.

    buddy got a reaction from Matilda_1 in Getting Through To Your Agent In January!   
    Like most of us now my mind has switched from Christmas to holidays.
    I saw a Celebrity cruise I liked and tried to call Bolsover who are my agents.
    I was put in a queue as they were so busy ( everyone must have the same idea as me!) and as I'm not very patient put down the phone to try later.
    Within 10 mins I received a call from Bolsover apologising for missing my call & asked how they could help.
    Hats off to you Bolsover - what fantastic service yet again!

    buddy reacted to RiverSong in Southampton Road Works   
    This is more offered as polite word of advice, for any lucky travellers. 
    The current road works in Southampon are bringing parts of the city to a stand still.  I have just return from a cruise, mytravel to Southampton was realatively straight forward but it took me a hour to drive through the city to my embarkation piont at Dock Gate 4.
    This work is planed for many more months and may need to be taken in to concideration.

    good for clients who want to make forward plans - i still need to arrange 2014!
    looks like plenty of incentives around to get us to book at the mo but they are a little confusing.
    Think I'll call my friends at Bolsover to help me out!!

    buddy got a reaction from RiverSong in Christmas Decorations (How Soon?)   
    i think early Dec is definately early enough. I love the decorations but hate untangling and putting the lights on the tree!!
    Maybe one year i will buy one with lights already on - flip of a switch sounds fab!!

    I love anything to do with the history of a place. It doesnt have to be a museum even - I visited Changi Prison in Singapore where the prisoners of war were kept and although it was a terrible place to be, it really is an interesting place to visit.

    I think the Aurora, Queen Elizabeth etc.. are just the right size ship
    The larger ships I sailed on just lacked atmosphere but thats what is so good about the diversity of ships - there is a ship out there to suit everyone!!!

    I believe the travel agent who told you about drip feeding must have been telling porkie pies!!
    deals can change and if a particular offer is going on sale and you are better to wait 24hrs then thats usually the answer
