  1. It appears that MSC can and do change your assigned cabin. Read "What the Hell" in the Cruise Lines MSC section of this forum.
  2. Returned on Monday to the Ocean Terminal from a Mediterranean Cruise on Cunard Queen Elizabeth. Two customs officials on duty, one male, one female - one at left tables and one on right. Couple directly in front of us were stopped by male on right. Female on left moved and looked ready to stop someone else. We continued unchallenged. Did not have anything, not even duty free alcohol.
  3. Me too! And I remember some very nice free port excursions.
  4. We need to jump start the engine. If you do not wish to fly with us your luggage will have to be found and off loaded. Only 6 people left. Did not include husband and myself, we had to be back to UK for work. Very quiet, tense atmosphere once we finally got going.
  5. Deluxe outside cabins FA grade on Oriana are much larger than standard outside cabins. They are identical to the balcony cabins, without the balcony. I have had this cabin grade on 3 cruises, in different areas of deck C and always had a bath. I have also had the balcony cabin so am sure the cabin layout is the same. Look at PO cruises website to see a plan of the balcony cabin and the Deluxe outsides are the same but no balcony.
  6. Cabin A171 is an excellent cabin. Had this one 2 years ago and the cabin is much bigger than the other EE grade cabins. Our table companions were in A161 and wanted to compare cabins, theirs was much smaller. The balcony is also much larger with an overhang from terrace above but with usual balcony area in the open. The only problem could be noise of sun beds being dragged across the terrace above. However this is always a problem on ships with cabins under the lido decks. We had no noise problems as our cruise was to the Arctic Circle.
