  1. I have sailed on both ships. The Oceana is smaller and older and has the most amazing atrium. The Azura is very sleek and elegant and is much more modern with loads of facilities. You really only sleep and shower in your cabin so choose the cruise by the destination you prefer
  2. Going on Emerald 20/08/16 so there's even more to look forward to now. Can't wait
  3. Most of the Baltic countries with the exception of Russia will accept Euros or credit/debit cards. For Russia you will need American dollars!
  4. What a fantastic idea. Passengers accept that tours have to be booked on line or on board if there is no alternative.
  5. No ideas awhere the new itineraries will be. Greek islands and Central Mediterranean are alawys popular for the Summer months. There does seem to be a lot of Baltic cruises this year.
  6. Hopefully yo will be able to go to Bruges. Do have some hot chocolate laced with rum whilst you are there - it really takes the chill away. Best way of getting to Bruges if not doing a tour is to get the coach to Blankenberge and the the train to Bruges - really cheap way to get there and a very good service.
  7. People do get left behind. However every effort is made - as you probably witnessed - to ensure no-one is left
  8. Cunard also offer the Grills experience - Princess and Queens Grill - a ship within a ship experience. Have only managed to do the Princess Grills once on Queen Victoria but would love to do it again
  9. My first cruise was on Oceana to the Caribbean and we flew to Miami. It was the fulfillment of a dream and lived up to and exceeded expectations. Have cruised ever since and still think its the best way to travel.
  10. Would love to do a world cruise - perhaps when I retire - don't think work would let me have the time off.
  11. The kids clubs are fantastic - you'll be lucky if you see the kids the whole cruise. Ventura is a fabulous family ship - lots of facilities - you'll all enjoy.
  12. I'm also on countdown to Anthem but 58 days - I'll still be counting when you get back.
  13. No limits on Royal Caribbean - have a good time I will when I go in October - can't wait.
  14. One of the great things about cruising was the interaction between guests and for new cruisers in particular is a great way to learn from other people's experience and pick up knowledge. It also builds long lasting friendships. It will be a great pity if cruising reverts to tables of 2, only
  15. I'm blue - must be feeling blue today!
