    loz6 reacted to cruise chef in P&O Cruises Announce Iona Will Be The Name Of Their New Ship for 2020   
    Seems a big shift from the older fleet names and I wonder if this will lead to other new vessels being given other Scottish Island names, or if it was an idea to create a major talking point with something very different. At least they didnt re-hash one of the previous ship names so full marks to them for that

    loz6 reacted to sammy sun in Military Benefits   
    I'm sure there are NHS discounts as well if that's correct? If I am correct and there is, then I do see your point sinbad in those circumstances, as Police and Fire Service should be permitted the same OBC benefits as NHS workers, however I disagree with you on the military benefits.
    Whilst I am in total agreement that NHS, Police and Fire service staff do an incredible job for our country, I do think military service is different to those roles and requires separate recognition. You cannot deem someone who has served their country to not be eligible for something such as on board credit. As Cruise Chef quite rightly said, whether they are squaddie or an officer, they have served and protected this nation and deserve recognition for it. I agree that NHS workers, Police and Fire service members all serve the country too, and in amazing way, but I don't think these roles can or should be compared to military service. That's just my opinion of course.

    Completely agree, it should be the same across the board. I understand them changing the OBC for different holiday durations but not for different cabin grades. I agree harley, it is wrong.

    People who rant and rave seem to get what they want and it's really not fair. I would only complain if I really thought it nessessery. At the end of the day you are on holiday...chill out!

    Echo that sentiment Buddy there will be some families out their who wont now get the opportunity to holiday in far away shores.
    On the other note a total farce/fiasco whichever way you look at it, I personally feel for all the poor travel agents and reservation staff having their ears chewed off by irate customers, the only people at fault (the third party card company) will no doubt bury their heads in the sand and let others sweep up the mess they have created.

    Every card payment is handled by a 3rd party, these go through clearing banks/companies.  Not just travel agents but all purchases

    My family have been affected by this and Bolsover have been very helpful, when we called they had time to explain it to us even though we could hear that they were obviosuly very busy and had a lot of calls regarding this. Our call was answered within minutes, we know of people who spent 20-30mins on hold to get through to P&O. The latest we have had was that the company that process P&O payments had an error and duplicated pre authorisised transactions, thats why the amount is exactly the same, they didnt have details held it was a duplication from a pre authorisation. Any pending money should be released back into the accounts when the banks open. They have said if any charges have been incurred they will be refunding these. Just waiting to hear if any further compensation will be offered. Cannot fault Bolsover in this as they do make it clear the contract is with P&O and they are acting on our behalf to book the cruise. And of course we always get it cheaper with them The mistake made was huge and I am sure there will be heads rolling in the payment procesing company! Cant mess with peoples money like this!

    loz6 reacted to RiverSong in Car Park Ruined Passengers Cruise After Putting Suitcase On The Wrong Ship.   
    It may just be every holidaymakers worst nightmare, you arrive on holiday but your case doesn’t.  This happened to a local couple from Nottingham, it wasn’t a airline that left them in this predicament but “Alternative Cruise Parking” who were responsible for loading their cases onto the ship.  They'd been advised to catch a bus to the ship and their suitcases would be loaded on for them.  Unfortunately there was an incorrect transfer of luggage by the car parking provider which left them a case down.  P&O did try an assist them with extra On Board Credit for essentials, but on a weeklong Ventura Cruise it didn’t help, as the lady was left unable to find any suitable outfits for the evening.

    I really don’t know what I would do if it happened to me, even worse if it was my partners not saying he’s a poser but he takes longer than most of my friends to get ready.
