  1. I don’t have a certificate, I have bought shares through Hargreaves & Lansdown. My next cruise is with P&O.
  2. Hi all. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to prove I have 100 Carnival shares to receive extra on board credit? Thanks in advance.
  3. I have sailed with American cruise lines before, and they have all served food from around the world, not just American style food. And apologies if I put it metaphorically, I didn't literally mean straight from the buffet, I expected a better quality meal than something I would get in the buffet.
  4. Completely agree, Captain Kidd II. We were on Sapphire Princess a few weeks ago on a Scandinavian cruise. This too was our first experience of Princess and went with high hopes of fantastic food and entertainment. The menus had a decent choice of starters, but only an average choice of mains, and a poor choice of desserts. I thought the portions were small and the quality of the food just above average. On one occasion when the main included chips I expected chunky chips like P&O do but instead got small fries straight from the buffet. Didn’t think much to the house band, but I thought the
  5. Apologies lol. In my defence though, I have come across passengers who treat cabin stewards like their personal slaves and won't lift a finger to do anything for themselves.
  6. If I needed some water I would go out and get some myself rather than waiting for 26 hours.
  7. If it's an excursion booked with P&O then you need not worry about the time as the ship won't sail without you.
  8. The shuttle dropped us off at the Lille Lungegardsvannet, a small man made lake with a fountain in the centre near the city centre (easy to spot on a map of Bergen). From there it was about a 10 minute walk to the funicular.
  9. Looks a great ship, but as has been said, a bit on the expensive side. Crazy prices for even an inside cabin, and haven"t even factored in the flights and gratuities. Apex out of Southampton would have been more promising but we've already booked Iona for Spring 2020. Ah well ☹️
  10. Just returned from a Northern Europe cruise on MSC Magnifica out of Southampton. We paid a very good price for the holiday and it included a restaurant and bar alcoholic and coffee drinks package for all three of us (usually third passenger only gets a soft drinks package). Itinerary was excellent, including Bruges, Hamburg and Amsterdam overnight. All the crew members were very good and professional. The balcony cabin was clean and had enough storage space for us all. But for all this, I'm not sure if we will sail with MSC again. I wouldn't describe it as a bad experience, but it wasn't as
  11. Thanks for your comments. I think we will chance it and get there early.
  12. Does any one know how strict MSC are with their boarding times? We are sailing from Southampton on Magnifica in a couple of weeks and have been given a time of 16:10. We usually aim to get to Southampton for about 13:00, but won’t bother if we are going to be refused early boarding. Thanks in advance.
  13. Started cruising in 2007 and have been on 30+ cruises since. Only one was booked with a different TA to Bolsover, that was Iglu who had a really good deal that could’nt be beaten. Nothing wrong with Iglu, but I have always been very happy with Bolsover’s service and , like Mitch, I am only 15 minutes away from their office and can call in any time if I need to.
  14. I have never been on a cruise ship where 5000 guests all wanted to do the same thing at the same time so not too concerned lol
  15. I know what you mean. There are a lot of ships I would like to try that only do the Caribbean, and I have no desire to go there.
