    Viking Sky in SOS Emergency

    Thamks Sinbad... I saw it on the news at lunchtime I didn’t know when I posted.

    Viking Sky in SOS Emergency

    I hope those injured make a speedy recovery. I think most of us have been on a ship in dodgy weather, although thankfully mostly calm, but it does bring home the fact that anything can happen at sea. I wonder though, how do they get reunited with all their personal stuff, or would it all get dumped....

    Speciality Restaurants

    Cruises used to be all inclusive, well I thought so, but now if you want something different it has to be paid for, even room service. I think it would be nice that if a person wanted to eat in a specialty restaurant then they should get a percentage back as on board credit. It’s all about money grabbing these days...

    Chocoholics buffet

    Whilst I did like the chocoholics buffet/walk through what I didn’t like was the way people used to pile their plates high with various chocolate fancies, and then leave half of them untouched. Watching some folk eating wasn’t a pleasant sight either... just my view 🤓

    Cruise ship on TV

    Sometimes you don’t know how bad it is until you have watched it...🙃

    How Does Music Affect You

    Whilst I like most types of music the thing I enjoyed the most was playing Bach’s Tocata and Fuge on a Church organ full belt. That was a few years ago lol... i cant relate to grunge or rap... not really music in my view...

    Is The Bubble About To Burst

    It might not depend on whether we can supply the demand but more on whether we have the spare cash depending on how our economy goes and the way cruise prices are increasing.

    Cruising with Cancer

    Even the healthiest of people can catch something on a ship whether it be the dreaded Norovirus or the colds that spread through the ship. Personally I wouldn’t take that risk in her position even if she could get insurance which may be highly unlikely. If she wasn’t covered and the necessity arose the bill could be astronomical....

    Celebrity Pricing?

    Aurora I think seems slightly smaller than Arcadia and in many ways is a nicer ship especially with its tiered back, unless they alter it during the refit. ive been saying for years that singles should get the extra obc but they never listen to what passengers think.

    Discount codes./ coupons

    When I lived in the states there were discount coupons for various stores in the papers most days and not just for the cheap and nasty stores. Managed to save a fortune and you didn’t have to wait for points to add up like most cards in the uk.

    Help please

    One would imagine that with different nationalities on board, therefore, different plugs on board that they would sell the correct adapters or at least be able to provide one. If not then they should provide the relevant information on the website.

    Is it me?

    God help the future of our country if we have folk who can’t do simple addition!

    P&o gratuities

    Shouldn’t that be ‘I don’t see the point’ lol...🤪 i thought that that this topic could have been put to bed by now...

    Iona's deck plans.

    I dread to think what size any single cabins will be. They don’t appear to be big enough to swing the proverbial cat in at the best of times, probably like a rabbit hutch now and they will still charge extra for those booking them...

    P&o gratuities

    And still it goes on. Gratuities are going to be included so there is no need to pay anything if a person doesn’t want to or think there is any need. It doesn’t matter how much staff earn as no doubt the cruise line has found a way to make sure that they are happy and no doubt in one way or another it will be the passengers who bear the brunt of it, whether by increased fares or fluid prices. Costs of cruises have already increased and until this comes in we won’t know the outcomes.
