    Has Anyone Been To Bali?

    Thanks Sammy Sun. I must say I am always excited when I book a cruise but this is the most adventurous we've ever been and I'm sorry to wish the summer away but I'm so looking forward to November!!!
  2. I was on NCL Spirit last year and I'm afraid to say i never noticed.....

    Do I Need A Passport For A British Isles Cruise?

    most british isles cruises ive seen still have a stop in le havre anyway so be careful. i would say you definately need a passport on any cruise

    Has Anyone Been To Bali?

    Thank you very much! It seems to be somewhere few people have been to as not many people have commented! I appreciate the advice. I think I'm inclined to pay that bit extra and go with an organised shore excursion from the ship! Looking at booking "Uluwatu temple" the first day and then on the second day "Ubud on your own". The third morning I think we may just relax onboard!!

    Baltic

    Tallin is lovely - the HOHO bus is great If you're docking in Gydnia for Gdansk then we used shore excursion to get to Gdansk then had a wander on our own once there Copenhagen - we saw Tivolli and the little mermaid. We did everything here on the HOHO bus too Stockholm - the Vasa museum is fabulous and the ABBA museum is great fun! the old town is beautiful to walk around St Petersburg - There's so much to see here! We saw Peterhof Palace, Catherines Palace and the Hermitage. Thoroughly enjouyed everything we did. Organised all through the ship so we didnt have to worry about visas for Russia

    what ports are you going to? all crise lines do slightly different itineraries
  7. I know there are quite a few Celebrity Cruises regulars on the forum . . . can anyone tell me please if the internet onboard is worth the cost and if so is it fast enough or will i need to get a drink in between opening emails?? do they do packages? thanks
  8. Thank you very much Richard!
  9. One of the great things about P&O is their variety of ships large and small . . . are they going to lose some customers through this as not everyone wants to go on the larger ships?
  10. There are a lot of deals around for october/november time to the far east. I was recently advsied that feb/march/april is a better time to go though. Does any one have any experience of this area? I'm still trying to find out as much as I can to please my hubby as he is desperate to get to this area!

    When’S The Best Time To Cruise To The Far East?

    Thank you David! November seems such a long time away though! We have been given use of a day room by Celebrity but it doesnt state which hotel it will be. Our flight leaves at 2320 so I feel it will be a loooooong day anyway! I have wanted to visit Phucket for years and apparently theres a pink beach in Komodo thats a must see . . . its just a case of weighing up seeing the pink beach or komodo dragons...!

    Have You Ever Forgotten To Pack Anything?

    i once forgot my hairbrush - i have long hair. . . had to buy a new one on the plane after we'd stayed in an airport hotel the night before and i didnt realise til the morning. i was rocking the dishevelled look!
  17. interested to know peoples views on this? are you happy paying corkage fees or do you think this shoudl be waived?? i may cause controversy here but i think i agree that they are ok to charge this. I dont mind when I go to a restaurant where you can take your own wine so why mind on a ship?! a friend of mine was recently complaining about this and I wonder what peoples feelings are in general??

    Thank you for that tip David. I wasnt aware they offered that . . . I feel I may go back to the drawing board and start my search again. Thats the great thing about this forum! I didn't know very much at all about this area and had just seen some great offers for a cruise! It's now made me think twice about the "deal" and investigate the itinerary further! The Millenium cruise may well be worth the extra cost from what you have said! The itineraries I had seen there were: DAY 1 NOV 5, 2015 Hong Kong DAY 2 NOV 6, 2015 Hong Kong DAY 3 NOV 7, 2015 Hong Kong DAY 4 NOV 8, 2015 Hong Kong DAY 4 NOV 8, 2015 Hong Kong, China DAY 5 NOV 9, 2015 Hong Kong, China DAY 6 NOV 10, 2015 At Sea DAY 7 NOV 11, 2015 Hanoi (Halong Bay), Vietnam DAY 8 NOV 12, 2015 Hanoi (Halong Bay), Vietnam DAY 9 NOV 13, 2015 Hue / Danang (Chan May), Vietnam DAY 10 NOV 14, 2015 At Sea DAY 11 NOV 15, 2015 Ho Chi Minh (Phu My), Vietnam DAY 12 NOV 16, 2015 At Sea DAY 13 NOV 17, 2015 Bangkok / Laem Chabang, Thailand DAY 14 NOV 18, 2015 Bangkok / Laem Chabang, Thailand DAY 15 NOV 19, 2015 At Sea DAY 16 NOV 20, 2015 At Sea DAY 17 NOV 21, 2015 Singapore, Asia DAY 18 NOV 22, 2015 Singapore, Asia OR: DAY 1 NOV 22, 2015 Singapore, Asia DAY 2 NOV 23, 2015 Singapore, Asia DAY 3 NOV 24, 2015 At Sea DAY 4 NOV 25, 2015 At Sea DAY 5 NOV 26, 2015 Benoa, Bali, Indonesia DAY 6 NOV 27, 2015 Benoa, Bali, Indonesia DAY 7 NOV 28, 2015 Benoa, Bali, Indonesia DAY 8 NOV 29, 2015 Komodo, Indonesia DAY 9 NOV 30, 2015 At Sea DAY 10 DEC 1, 2015 At Sea DAY 11 DEC 2, 2015 At Sea DAY 12 DEC 3, 2015 Phuket, Thailand DAY 13 DEC 4, 2015 Penang, Malaysia DAY 14 DEC 5, 2015 Port Kelang, Malaysia DAY 15 DEC 6, 2015 Singapore, Asia

    Should Cruise Line Corkage Fees Be Uncorked?!

    I must admit I wasnt aware that the P&O charge was more than the price of the cheapest bottle of wine! I have only ever taken alcohol on the ship to have in my cabin (dependant on the cruise line of course as some wont allow even this!) Whilst I agree with them charging if you take your own wine in, I personally haven't done it so far and think I would be too embarassed - yet i have done it in restauarants where that is the policy!?!
