  1. The clothes are not the only problem you have a pile of coat hangers and the will I won t I yes I will, think I need a fleece, maybe cool on the sail out, and back and all the bits and odd and ends clothes I think I will take then maybe not, the end of cruise packing no problem do itthe afternoon of the last day.anyway I have done most of it, my other half does his own, he is very good, but I would A never let him pack for, B pack for him, last thing I need is a long white dress and black bra and knickers, see Gentlemen that’s another we ladies have to think about!
  2. We are going to cruise for 17 nights, going on Tuesday next, so why do I find packing such a stress? I write lists have all the extras together,, does anybody else feel like this?
  3. As I said just my personal opinion we have 40 plus Cruises under the belts and never had a problem with Cunard! Our two with another line I said never again even if we won it. Nothing wrong with Princess we have done a few with them, and quite a few with P and O, best part with P and O is they have many different ports
  4. I think you first cruise sets the bar, and that line becomes you favourite and many other cruisers I have spoken to feel the same. our first many years ago was Cunard on the QE2 so needless to say that’s our favourite but have done four other lines but still think the best, Just my personal opinion of cause.

    2020 bookings?

    In our experence, the best price and OBC is when a cruise event is on, when all the cruise lines are putting out the best possible deals, I have only once booked while aboard a cruise ship, so I am not is a good position to say what is best, just what I have experienced for us nothing like a cup of coffee and a session on the lap top, plus the Saturday newspaper.
  7. In my humble opinion a day is just not enough, the foot paths are even hot making getting around difficult. I think to do all you want to do and see your better to do a city break, three or four days, that’s what we did, and still did not do the it all I think you can get a flavour of the city, by coach tour, but not the full thing, only my opinion and we are still able to get round. hope you enjoy.
  8. We book well in advance the cruise we are on in next (18Th September) was booked March 2017 a new year cruise last August 2017 our two for next were book in Spring this year and last month booked for March 2020. in our experence you get the best price, the cabin we want, and all the other benefits. it is of cause personal thing I like a plan, my Grandsons always say What’s the plan Nana,
  9. It so depends on your experence, my Father was taken Ill and went into hospital I wanted to know how he was even down to still alive, phoned home daily, my grandson was also ill when we were away, some people we became friends with, the man lost his credit card, so needed to phone his bank, nothing to do with gloating, he had no coverage with his phone but I did. be glad you have not had my experence and take care who you disapprove of using the phone.

    2020 bookings?

    Like Towny44 said that’s what we have done in the past and got some very good deals, we have booked for March 2020 and got a the 5% deposit and double Bolsover discount
  11. Being a diamond club member of Cunard have sailed with them many times, I am fed up with them they seem to apply everything to QM2 even the cunarder mag was all about the Mary, you can bet the T and C will be on the side of Cunard, this is hard for me to say, the only thing is they will put it onto the fleet in time.
  12. I once forgot that three pin plugs were upside down on a ship we were on forget which ship, but reception told to bring my phone and charger down to them and they would charge it, maybe that what they want you to do. just to say would never charge anything overnight or when I’m not at home yet alone when away.
  13. I keep mine on I use the clock, I do phone home two or three times on a two week cruise, I also have the weather app I only read text messages from the family, I don’t use the internet Ilike the reassurance I can phone for help if required but my contract is good value.
  14. I am fed up with my iPad changing words, sorry should read what network, and connect to
  15. In my experence with EE my phone automatically finds the best signal where ever we are, then EE send a text message to tell me Whitchurch network I have come ted to and warns if the cost is high, and how much per min, to make and receive calls and also text messages the maritime network is £5 per minute I then turn my phone off That’s my calls plan. i have never had a no network available and we have been to some remote areas. hope this helps
  16. I also wonder how she fell, and at time of night did the value for money drinks package add to it!! only my opinion as ever
  17. At the end of the day, you get cover that your happy with, at a price you feel comfortable with with so many permutations no couple will be the same as others. just my opinion as usual
  18. As I have said before We use Staysure, other have said they did not like them, but for us with my husbands medical condition and giving the offer code from the national newspaper printed most Saturdays or Sundays. they have cruise insurance with three different levels.
  19. Me too, can you imagine the fuss on tender port days, or sea days for that matter, no no no
  20. Bit like any forum, you say something which is your opinion and people shoot you down, saying your wrong
  21. 15 gin and tonics would knock me out, why would anybody do that to your liver or is being on holiday different from normal life? just my opinion as always
  22. The post from a p and o cabin steward, was about four weeks ago, he had left his cabin steward job at the start of this year, he said that a gagging order on crew telling anybody about Tand Cs but as he had left that employ and had a secure post with his hotel, he thought he would spill the beans as it were, the post was quite long, so could not relay all.
  23. Yes on another forum I read a post from a crew member who gave the low down on how much they got, and it was much less than you would think He was now working at a London Hotel. I have no reason to disbelieve what he said. all I can say is you need to do what you feel is fair. I am talking about the auto grants!
  24. Not because of the photos but have just booked Dubai, and suez canal and fly back from Malta on Oceana for March 2020. have wanted to the Middle East for a while and it’s a good price, with only 5% deposit well done Zoe at Bolsover
  25. Yes over the last week we have had three calls, my other half, just says thank you telling me, good buy, and puts the phone down, it seems to be a recorded message.
