  1. We have booked the new year cruise, only 5 nights, but a different New Year’s Eve for us, I am looking forward to it very much I think it will be strange cruising in cold weather, so if not formal night, what do people wear? Is it trousers and jumper during the day? I am expecting the port days to be cold, so lots of layers scarf and gloves Amsterdam for two days could be very cold, as I understand. Any tips, from you.
  2. Nice photos Mitch, you did not say, but did you win the photo competition the sun set were beautiful. As for disembarking have to agree with HML it is passengers who just barge in any line of people and get off when they want, why I don’t know because the baggage hall get congested suitcases all over the place, as for those with a imbalanced trolly that you feel cause you physical injury heading in your direction, I did once see a man tip up his trolly onto another man picking up a suit holder, they had to call security because it was getting heated.

    Cruise Log

    Owls I have never ever seen on a cruise ship, I thought they flew at night and hunted, we did once have a robin who used to sit on the rail of our balcony I’m not sure but think it stayed on the ship maybe enjoying a free cruise it did like the biscuits we put on the table

    lest we forget

    Some people are so self obsessed it makes you wonder I would have been shocked to have witnessed the callousness We must remember them
  5. Nice photos as usual Mitch did you have more rain? I know it does not last long but it’s a pain, We had heavy rain in Barbados and we were doing a beach tour and barbecue so ended up sitting in a mini bus for longer that I would have liked hayho happy days
  6. Just my opinion of cause, but we use the post office it’s the most reliable and over the application with a fine tooth comb and it is secure in these days of identity fraud We like the peace of mind.
  7. I must admit I stay in the laundrette when my stuff is in the dryer, because once somebody took my things out and also another dryers clothes and put both together in a laundry basket my pure cotton white shirt had a some navy blue shorts on the top of it, needless to say I could never get the stain out, I was unhappy to put it mildly, hence now sit with a book until my stuff is dry. When we did the Caribbean we had some heavy rain, it did not last long but we got so wet. hope you continue to enjoy yourself
  8. Well I am surprised about the price match on duty free, thought it was just something that was said at duty free so very well done. it is cold but sunny today here, so I am very envious of you in the sun and love the photos and the time you give to us posting on the forum well done 👍
  9. We went on the Crown Princess from Southampton and took both our elder Grandsons, we had a wonderful time, the shows were the best we have ever seen at sea. The drinks package was very good value, we had two balcony cabins next to each other, and the screen between the balcony was opened which was great, the boys thought the food was better than P&O and Cunard and that the crew were more friendly we were also surprised that our past cruise history was taken into account and all four of us were given elite loyalty status so got invited to all the party’s nothing negative to say
  10. Had a free coffee today while shopping, have a bag full of coffee cards, Tesco, boots I have £60 on that nectar card has about £50 on it my Husband laughs about my loyalty cards but it mounts up, not forgetting Waitrose getting a free newspaper with the shopping, so Yes I like coupons, and loyalty cards. like
  11. Such a shame must be awful for the people in Venice, Have to say, they can’t blame cruise ships for rainfall
  12. Well done Mitch, nice to read your post, enjoy your cruise, look forward to your next input.
  13. Have a good time Mitch, I do a toilet flush bleach down the drains etc, then my husband uses the toilet, and washes his hands, so the bleechhas gone, hey ho we are still alive.
  14. An umbrella is no use in a hurricane, but always pack one, hope it does not see light of day.
  15. I hate this how much did you pay topic, whatever you paid, somebody has paid less, and more, I think it should be in the T/C not to discuss it, Actually it used to be for staff discount Just my opinion
  16. I get a print out to see how much OBC has been used,because your loyalty discount only comes off when your OBC has been used, so IF you want to perches a higher value product it can mean that it will be 10% less, which can make a big difference, having said that the merchandise on P and O is not so good.
  17. We have done this cruise twice, first time quite good weather all the time second time was in March and very cold first four days, and last three days were very cool, having said that just come home from the Greek islands cruise and we were caught up in a hurricane so you never can tell. But the sea days are lovely (well we like them ) get into a few good books, and nice people to chat too. Happy Holiday
  18. Nothing wrong with the food on cruise ships, but I do like the simple stuff when you get home only so much rich living I can take
  19. Yes I know But we did have some nice Cruises on her and nostalgia is a wonderful thing, you get a glow from you memories and forget the things you had a gripe with.however I do understand what you are saying
  20. Yes beans on toast with grated cheese on the top, had that yesterday, and I do like more gravy with the roast dinners on a cruise I know I can ask for more, but you tend to have to just leave it, well I do
  21. We were docked next to Oriana in Gibraltar on Tuesday, I am sorry she is going, we were looking back on the times we sailed on her, yes lots of buckets in the corridors catching drips of water rattles in the dinning rooms however she had such a lovely atmosphere and she had such a loyal following
  22. I posted that I thought packing was stressful, we having just come off Ventura on a 17 night Greek island cruise, but not what we ended up doing, was very different because we were involved with the hurricane and out running the storm or sheltering in Port,and most of the island ports were cancelled however we were safe, and kept up to date as far as possible Regarding the post on mobile phones, I had to phone home to the family to tell them we were quite safe. now unpacking, washing and getting up to date.
  23. Sorry Mitch but won’t you be away on the 1st of October? My friend using a ironing pad on the table and sits to do all her ironing, I am sure lots of things available to make it more comfortable for you to carry on with ironing your shirts
  24. I was stressing about things to those who are now solo travelers I am ashamed of myself, because it’s nothing compared to going away without your loved ones, your very brave, if I only have dark knickers to worry about it’s not the end of the world, if I leave a mess upstairs the burglar will think somebody beat him too it, thanks guys, happy holiday to you all
  25. I mean the discarded hangers and dress covers when packing, and yes I buy a pack of hangers from the pound shop, which I leave in the cabin, no it’s the mess I make packing, that I ment
