  1. Too organised 2TORTS!! although it does allow morem time for the Christmas tipple. Hope the arm isnt too sore from the jab
  2. Oh the love of ship internet (not). We were trying to watch the final but with 2 balls to go the ship lost signal. Loving the comments re Taufel though and it reminded me of a shirt that a crowd member was wearing at Trent Bridge recently in the World Cup which as you will read below was priceless Australian Rules of Cricket Bat YES Ball Yes Sandpaper YES Dignity xxxxxxx
  3. Sounds like a journalist was on the cruise, LOOKING FOR A STORY me thinks!!
  4. Good old Donald strikes again. Just as all tourists look forward to finally seeing Cuba he pulls the rug from under them forcing all the cruise lines to dramatically change their cruises, such a shame as I'm sure the poorer people in Cuba would have welcomed the influx of cash from cruise guests. Will it be Mexico next?
  5. Thanks for the reply 'Dozydo' and not meant to be a Belittler as you put it but simply if you have a cabin that has what you asked for why risk changing. Bit if you do then it goes without saying!
  6. Pleasing to hear Davybe as I was trying to work out which would be the preference
  7. This always makes me laugh when I have listened to people on ship, when they were in an obstructed view cabin and upgraded to a clear view and they were moaning it was a downgrade because it was lower down in the ship? What part of unobstructed to clear isnt better? Its just down to the NAoC'S on ship (for those who dont know what this means 'National AssocIation of Complainers' who have nothing better than moan, they are supposed to be on holiday enjoying themselves).
  8. All the lifts not reaching all of the decks is nothing new, Oceana only has access to the lower decks from the mid & fwd lifts otherwise you would probably be asked to wash the pots in the galley on the rear lifts. Clearly if there is a lack of food they are trying to be considerate of peoples expanding waistlines after we only need 3 square meals not 5
  9. As the age old saying goes 'never judge a book by its cover'. I know an elderly gentleman who lives near me and his dress sense is for want of a better word unkempt, however you will never meet such a nice, kind & polite man anywhere so I am with you on this
  10. It seems that the bubble for UK cruise passengers hasn't burst yet as we see further announcements for new ships for Oceania, Regent & Virgin Voyages who will start bookings soon. Although I'm not sure our little island will be able to cope to supply the demand the cruise lines expect
  11. Seems to be the way of the world, at least its not the really high resort fees that some American cities charge, I am also with afc andrew on the cynical side I am sure the cruise lines will sell overpriced excursions into Amsterdam
  12. As I fancy going to Australia I may have to watch this one with muted sound!

    Sprout flavoured tea, that's definitely one to avoid

    Must be getting close to the time you put the sprouts on to boil, the dog steals the Turkey and everyone has free licence to over do the eating and drinking Merry Christmas to all. Lets see what 2019 will bring
  15. I had seen a similar article a couple of weeks ago about staff being arrested in Miami onboard MSC Seaside but hadnt seen this until someone mentioned it today
  16. I suppose the simple answer is try it for yourself and make your own views, at least it removes the need for reviews in the 1st place
  17. I sometimes post reviews on Trip Advisor usually if the product has been good so that other people can get better recommendations to try flights, food or experiences, I agree that some people post when you can clearly tell they have never even set foot inside the premises but this is own to the reviews site to remove these people from their records. Some of the restaurant responses to dodgy reviews though are priceless
  18. My old Maths teacher said calculators giver you brain rot!!! Possibly a good example!
  19. Looks like Iona will have a Prom deck you can walk around
  20. Yes on a flight to Portugal with a large Hen Party, have to admit it was quite funny as we also were on the same flight home with them, very quiet on the way home!!!
  21. Maybe Davybe that the poor sole putting 50p's in the meter cant keep pace with people charging their scooters together with all the multiple devices we all take these days
  22. Maybe the saving will come from 1 less receptionist as they wont have queues for all the people wanting to remove them
  23. Well we've all harped on enough on the forum about Tipping. Finally a cruise line has taken the bull by the horns and stopped them. Yes they've probably incorporated into the fare but good on them, safe to say though it still doesn't stop anyone giving staff a little extra if they exceed your expectations For once well done P&O. (I wonder if others will now follow suit)
  24. It's always the same, major sporting events or festivals as they know you are a captive market and they have to recoup the high costs of having a pitch it's always the poor customer(literally) that comes home with an empty wallet. There are definitely some tourist traps that fit into this Venice as mentioned. Raffles bar in Singapore is another.
  25. I kind of share your views AFCAndrew, these places with smaller ships do seem crowded with the arrival of 3000+ people, so the thoughts of 5000+ could be too much. Or are P&O expecting a lot of their passengers to stay onboard and use the numerous facilities being mentioned about on IONA
