  1. At just under £20 per person per day it all depends on how much fiz and coffee you drink. They main buffet has tea and coffee on tap all day, but if you want a Costa then that is extra. We have found the charges for drinks very fair and have never taken up the drink packages. For two people £40 a day is a lot of liquid.
  2. I have to add one thing that really impressed us was the pick up service from home ( and return) we had a private car both ways. When we arrived at the terminal in southampton our driver unloaded our luggage and took it to the collection point and within 15 minutes we were in our cabin. Also your travel insurance is also included in the price. You may have to pay a little extra if you have serious medical conditions, but it is still good value for money.
  3. I don’t care and don’t watch anything to do with football.
  4. I hate it, only ever watch about 10minutes of the program. That was enough for me. I would rather watch paint dry.
  5. Being a regular cruiser with P&O and not liking the new big ships we decided to try a Saga cruise on there latest ship. The size is just what we like just over 900 passengers. All balcony cabins and they are lovely even a standard cabin is a good size with everything you need, Tea/coffee tray, hairdryer, binoculars, robes and slippers, plenty of hangers in the wardrobe and a beautiful shower room. The staff were very happy, the food was excellent, the shows we watch with the singers and dancers were very professional. Some of the other entertainers were not to our liking. My only negative

  7. I am on Spirit of Adventure at this very moment.
  8. I have to be brutally honest. We did a tour in Alexandria a couple of years ago, it was filthy, the transport had no Aircon the guides carried guns ( they said for our safety) the transport had to drive in convoy with armed security in front and behind. We had planned to visit the sites you mentioned from Port Said the next day. But after our day in Alexandria we cancelled and stayed on the ship. After talking to other passengers who went on the tour it seems we made the right decision. Sorry I am sure other people will be more positive.
  9. As a regular cruiser I understand your frustration. But in the last year ports have changed do to Covid regulations. We had also booked to go on Arcadia for a USA/ Caribbean cruise last year. Then cancelled due to covid, It had never shown any USA ports on the intinary but I understood that it had to cruise in US waters so needed to show that. We have also done the 35 night holiday that included New Orleans. A few changes had to be made but that was due to the weather. Must admit it is not a place I would want to go again. We just accept this as part of cruising, the intinary are planned so
  10. Just got back from a cruise on Aurora. Our insurance was with Staysure Travel Insurance. On boarding we asked the question “Do you have insurance” we did not need to show any copies of our policy.
  11. Morning, it is good to see there is somebody out there. I agree I watch Britannia sail out on the “Solent Ship” live you tube site. Our cruise on Arcadia in November was cancelled last week, we were not surprised but still disappointed. It makes us wonder if the plan to sell the last two small ships Arcadia and Aurora. We have now booked a cruise for September 2022 with Saga with the discount on offer it was a good deal, so worth a try.
  12. Just over 18,000 joined the link, We were surprised at the number who signed in.
  13. As you say you are already booked on Iona so they don’t need to sell to you. Like you we have been cruising with P & O for many years but only on the small or Adult only ships. Therefore they need to sell Iona to us. Maybe that is why we received the invitation.
  14. It should go live on 17th May, that’s why it is not showing your Covid jabs at the moment ( but don’t hold your breath)
  15. I also received the email from P & O.
