  1. Last Canaries cruise we did every desk was occupied by customs officers !
  2. We thought the hairdryer was. ok ....at least it wasn't' attached to the bathroom wall or the dressing table drawer !
  3. Excellent suggestion ...As this is exactly what I received as my Secret Santa gift a few years ago & I was delighted ....but sadly my ticket didn't win !
  4. Hi Falmouth girl you raise some very valid points regarding loyal passengers like yourself who need to travel last minute due to health problems. I totally agree with you. If you have not received a questionnaire about the loyalty changes I suggest you email the P&O loyalty club direct with your comments so they can be taken into consideration . NS .
  5. Great ending for series 6 .....as you say Jaczs 'who let the dogs out ' .....very fitting end for Ramsay !
  6. Oh dear Terminator!! So sad you didn't win the £300 to put towards your cruise on Koningsdam ! Does this now mean you will have to spend your days waiting in Hollywood .....or was that Cricklewood !!
  7. Totally agree with you Seawitch the scaremongers on TV have been backtracking today ! As you say we are a democratic country and the people of UK have spoken so we all have to get on with it in the best way we can whether we like it or not . Nobody can really predict the outcome as we are in an unprecedented situation .
  8. Have a wonderful cruise I am sure you will find a varied age group onboard during August as this is the main holiday period .
  9. Have been to Norway many times and As others have said the weather can be very nice in summertime but take clothes you would take for a British summer holiday . Sometimes showers are never far away . Take Norwegian Krona for coffees .
  10. Hi Kevin I have sailed on Arcadia a few times , the age group is varied and can depend upon the itinerary . However since it is an adult only ship it does attract a majority of people of 50+ Age group . I am sure you will enjoy the ship.
  11. Oooohh! Know exactly what your analogy implied .....just not relevant .
  12. Totally agree Tally it appears to be survival of the fittest ,everyone for themselves.
  13. You are have to be joking ...what have cowboy builders got to do with anything !
  14. Can Assure you I get real I live in the North !....Negative thinking gets you nowhere !
  15. Lets be positive about this ........Does nobody remember what it was like living in the Uk prior to joining EU. .......... I do ! We travelled abroad for our holidays without problems ! We had a very good NHS ! We went on cruises ! We got our foreign currency ! We had passports ! We had mortgages ! Think positive !
  16. Have cruised for over 20 years and so have never really kept a record of the number of cruises or the number of days at sea but we take about 3 cruises a year so I guess it's quite a lot. We prefer longer cruises of over 14 days and have never taken a cruise of less than 7 days. We have sailed with many different cruise lines over the years these include Celebrity ,Azamara, Holland America , P&O ,NCL ,Princess ,Oceania , and my least favourite Royal Caribbean . We have done fly cruises from many different locations in Europe , USA and Hawaiian Islands but these days prefer to sail from
  17. Thanks for the review Furby.
  18. Hi Sinbad ...I think this is a good idea for the vey large ships as they are really floating resorts ...perhaps the cruise lines might take this idea up In the future.
  19. Suggest you take your query up with P&O HLM
  20. I think it looks great , very traditional .
  21. I have today received a communication from Christopher Edgington Director at P&O confirming the change to the Service Reward scheme advising of the increase from £5.00 to £5.50 per day for cruises from 2nd May 2016. He states'PLEASE BE ASSURED THAT 100% OF THE AMOUNT GOES DIRECTLY TO THE CREW MEMBERS WHO SERVE YOU AND MAKE YOUR HOLIDAY MEMORABLE AND AS A THANK YOU AND IS HUGELY APPRECIATED . THIS INCLUDES YOUR RESTAURANT WAITING STAFF ,BUFFET STAFF, CABIN STEWARD AND / OR BUTLER. ' I thought I would share this confirmation with you to end the conjecture on the forum of P & O not pa
