    Arcadia World Cruise 2021 - Planning Advice Please

    This might seem an odd one but check with your house insurance that your house will be covered for the duration of the cruise. Just having someone going in to check it sometimes isn’t enough.

    Daily Service Charge on UK bookings now included in the price

    They probably can’t afford the mortgage payments on the new boats!

    Would you book it?

    P and O used to do themed cruises and music cruises which were good and prices weren’t that extortionate but to go on a cruise with Jane McDonald would be my idea of....... well let’s say that they would have to give it to me and even then I might think twice.... just my opinion as I can’t stand her singing...

    Luggage storage in cabins?

    Possibly not. You can always ask the cabin steward if they could be stored. They used to do that but not sure if they still do.

    Havana US ban

    Just remember to check with your travel insurance that they cover Cuba if you do go. There appears to be some companies who don’t cover it...

    Jane back on Friday.

    I’ve not watched it yet due to her screeching and won’t start now...😱

    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.
