  1. Hi, We are going on a weeks cruise from Southampton to Guernsey, Bruges and Rotterdam. We've never been to Rotterdam and was wondering if its similar to Amsterdam in that you get off the ship and can go walk about? Or do we need an excursion. We'd much prefer to do our own thing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  2. Hi, Has anyone been on a cruise who is vegan? Im going on a two night cruise with my sister who is vegan. We are going on the Ventura. I mentioned it when booking, but if you look at the menus they cater for vegetarian but not vegan. On booking, I was told theyve made a note of it. She said we can explain at the dinner table and they will make something up for my sister . I said thats a bit bad really as they should have some options on the menu. If there are 3000 or more passengers on a cruise, you telling me everyone wants a meat dish. I didnt find her helpful. So t
  3. Hi, Can anyone tell me what the procedure is when you are tendered off? We are going on the Britannia , P&O, in May, and the first port of call is Guernsey.

    Hello, We will be on the Azura for seven nights. One port of call is Bilbao. We would like to visit the Guggenhiem museum and was wondering is it worth doing through excursion trip or ourselves? Also, does the excursion cost include the entry fee to the museum? And going with p&o we shouldnt have to que with prepaid tickets. Thank you
  8. Hi, In september I'm on a 7 night cruise. One port of call is Bilbao. I would like to visit the Guggenhiem gallery. Can this be done without an excursion or do you think its best to book the excursion? Also, if we go with the excursion does the cost of the excursion include the ticket to get into the museum?

  12. Hi, Im looking at a cruise that goes out 2nd september this year from southampton for 7 nights. The ship is the Azura . The cruise is a Western Europe. Visiting La Rochelle, Bilbao, La Coruna and St Peters Port Guernsey. Please can anyone tell me if theyve done this cruise. My concern is the Bay of Biscay and how choppy will it be? Also, is the Azura like the Ventura? King Regards
  13. Hi, We are going on the Ventura in May , mini cruise, for my husbands 60th. There will be eight of us. On the cruise personaliser, you can pre book the tables now. I wanted to book the Epicurean restaurant now to make sure we get in. However, it only allows you to book a table for six and no more. Does anyone know a way round this? Also, you have to pay now. If, for some reason, someone cant go, will I get my money back ? Thank you
  14. Thank you, all your replies are very helpful indeed ! I love stilton and cheese !
  15. Yes, it does , on the Arcadia we didn't have all that. So the website shouldn't show it. When we were on the Ventura we went to the White Room, Marco P. White for dinner. I see that no longer exsists. Its called the Epicurean. Can anyone shed some light on this as i was going to book the White Room for my husbands Birthday.
  16. Thank you. It isn't right tho ! the food/menu should be the same no matter how long you are on the cruise for, you have paid the money !
  17. Hi, I have cruised with P&O a few times. The last ship being Arcadia. This was a four night cruise. The time before that was the Ventura, 15 night Caribbean cruise. I was disappionted with the Arcadia menu. It wasn't as full as the Ventura. For e.g. if you take a look on the P&O website at a typical menu and one which we received on the Ventura, Starter, Soup, Main Course, dessert, etc... on the Arcadia, the soup and starter was one choice you had one or the other. Next year I am going on another four day cruise, this time on the Ventura. This is for my husbands special B
  18. Hi - we will be cruising on the Ventura, 1st March. I like the look of the Glass House and was wondering if you eat in there or is it just a wine bar? If you can eat, is there a supplement? Many Thanks
  19. Thank you so much for the information. We just want to chill for an afternoon. Sounds perfect, thank you. Can't wait, four weeks on Saturday !
  20. HI - On the 1st of March we will be going on the eastern Caribbean cruise. We like the sound of the Bequia excursion from St Vincent and was wondering if anyone can let me know what it is like?
