    Cast ashore got a reaction from B&M in Holidaymakers admit to exaggerating bad experiences and threatening negative reviews!   
    This doesn't surprise me at all! If there is a genuine problem/concern that's fine, but when people exaggerate purely for the purpose of getting something free/discounted I feel sorry for the person who has to deal with it all.

    Cast ashore got a reaction from Fiona in The World's Most Luxurious Cruise Ship   
    The world's most luxurious cruise ship, Regent Explorer, is to be christened tomorrow by Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene of Monaco. If anyone wants to watch the christening they can watch it via this link here http://www.explorerchristening.com/
     
    But most importantly is anyone lucky enough to have a cruise booked on board this glamourous ship?

    Welcome to the forum Margaret. Though I'm yet to see what Adonia has to offer, I do believe that she has a loyal following and is a well-loved ship in the P&O fleet. Try not to worry about how you paid vs that of what others paid, focus on looking forward to your cruise . You'll have to let us all know on the forum how you get along.

    From the image above, I can only imagine how small the shower may be - I'm guessing it's where the door on the the bottom right hand corner of the photo?

    Great review Land Ahoy! I had heard somewhere that the single cabins on NCL were on the small side, but if people are spending very little time in here then there's not much to worry about. The single cabins on NCL are also quite quirky - not sure if you're cabin looked like this Land Ahoy?

    It's very hard at times to not be influenced by all things social media and I would say it certainly has helped play a role in helping me decide where I should consider going next. Sometimes it's great it opening your mind up to visiting places you may have previously dimissed/ not thought about visiting before.

    Everyone I've spoken to has taken Kroner to Norway. They've also all come back with the same comment as littlemousa that everything is so expensive so be prepared for paying a high price for things.

    Cast ashore got a reaction from Rum+Sun in Cruise Passenger Stranded In Frozen Alaskan Forest   
    I’m not sure if anyone else has seen or read the article below, but for this cruiser it was certainly a good ending. The woman who has not been named was stranded in a frozen Alaskan forest during her cruise aboard Coral Princess when it docked in Juneau, Alaska. This cruiser certainly got more than what she bargained for on this memorable cruise when she got lost during a day hike after getting disorientated. Consequently, she missed the 4pm departure and had to wild-camp in the forest, in an area that is known for its black bear encounters. Luckily the cruiser made it to the tourist centre in good health, apart from being cold, wet and tired the next morning.

    This would be one of my worst nightmares – I hate camping, let alone attempting to wild-camp, and every little sound would’ve had me on tenterhooks! Have you ever got lost on a tour and worried about not making it back to the ship on time?

    A very in-depth and thorough review, thanks for taking the time to post as it makes for a great read. It's a shame to hear that there were a few issues with tendering.

    I agree with the comments if there is something wrong then speak up. I hate that people who are nice and have a problem normally don't get any resolution whereas if you rant and rave about it they are the ones which usually get what they want.

    Great review of Harmony of the Seas! Glad to hear that you had a great time on board and I hope that you and your daughter also have a great time when you board tomorrow - will be great to hear what you daughter thought of the ship too  . I've seen quite a few videos of people going down the Ultimate Abyss and it looks fab. Those burgers look ace and you can see from the photos you've uploaded how great the artwork on board is.

    Cast ashore got a reaction from WAVES in Being honest at embarkation?   
    I too can't imagine very many people declaring an illness before they embark in fear of missing out. I would assume like the rest of  you have, that they would check you over, and quite possibly isolate you for perhaps the day(?) to be on the safe side. Would be really interesting to hear from anyone who has experienced this.

    I agree with RiverSong this is a great blog and perfect for first time cruisers who are looking to find out more about gratuities. I also couldn't have said it any better, we all just need to remember that the choice is yours.

    Cast ashore got a reaction from Land Ahoy in Crystal Mozart Interior Design   
    Has anybody else seen the new images that have been unveiled for the luxurious Crystal Mozart? The spacious and stylishly outfitted suites, public lounges and dining venues are certainly eye-catching! I really like the crisp colour scheme and the marble bathroom is a dream. What do you think to the design?

    Cast ashore got a reaction from TraceyA in Mother left sobbing on dock as cruise ship leaves with children on board   
    I didn't think you could leave the ship without one parent/guardian being on board? This clearly doesn't seem to be the case with NCL. I'm sure that the kids were well looked after in the Kids Club, I don't doubt that, I'm just really surprised that the parents weren't back on the ship in time! You would've thought that they would've double checked the time that they needed to back on board and given themselves plenty of time to get back on time. Obviously not!

    I didn't watch the programme last night but just reading an interesting article on some of the companies practises and it really is quite shocking! Seat blocking and misleading customers... Don't think I'll be using Flight Centre anytime soon.

    Cast ashore got a reaction from Bumble Bee in Ovation Float Out   
    All has been revealed and the animal sculpture on board Ovation of the Seas is not one but two Pandas! I love it and think it's a great move from RCI helping them bring awareness to their recent partnership with World Wildlife Fund. Plus the two Pandas are a great fit for the ship that is heading to China.
     
    What do you think to the Pandas, love them or hate them?
