  3. there are so many different offers available with different cruise companys, but what offer makes you book, free travel , on board credit, complimentary drinks packages or is it just the best price ?

    Line Of Duty

    love it ! cant believe ive never watched it before !
  5. think that is it just down to space if the pools were bigger there would be less space for sunbeds etc, personally i feel that the pools are plenty big enough for what they are used for on board. there tends to be a more than 1 pool on most ship especially the bigger ships which will have even more, we have always managed to find a quiter pool if thats what you were looking for.
  6. sailaway party leaving gibralter on oriana about 8 years agao, fantastic atmosphere on deck !

    Weather in Norwegian Fjords in May

    we are also hoping to do the fjords this summer and also a little unsure of the weather after doing some research looks as though may is one of the better times although not quite as warm as july usually not as wet so hopefully you should be fine , although like the others have said layers and waterproofs are a good idea. enjoy
  8. look forward to seeing what she will be doing, hopefully a few new smaller ports !

    Do You Trust Your Agent? Dispatches

    it can be so misleading at times, seeing offers on line but until you get to the final booking page you dont always see what your paying , so glad i always books with bolsover the price they quote is always what i pay no surprises when i come to pay the balance !

    Britannia refit?

    i also heard it was that they were having stair put in the middle of the ship too so think thats correct, again due to people moaning

    Never been on a cruise

    hi dan, I travelled with p&o on azura last year and took my 2 boys who were 4 &8 they absolutely loved every minute of it especially the kids clubs, they also took advantage of childrens tea in the buffet late afternoon which ment they could enjoy the kids club while we were able to enjoy our evening meal. they are made to feel so welcome on board and the staff are fantastic with them, the can not wait to go again . dependent on your children's ages they also offer a night nursery for younger children till late at night and have all facilities from bottle warmers, cots to baby baths everything you could need so you can travel a little lighter. I have also heard that royal Caribbean are very good for older children as they have the rock climbing walls, ice skating, zip wire, and much, much more ! hope that this helps ?
