    World Cruise Refunds.

    It's not easy to insure for full cancellation costs for a world cruise, most insurance companies will only cover £5000.00p per person. However it is possible, at a cost. Nationwide will cover for full cancellation costs (terms and conditions apply) for an extra premium. We have been quoted £150.00p for the two of us, on top of the cruise travel/health insurance for our world cruise in 2015. Not much use to you emidex but be useful to future world cruisers.
  2. We usually remove the automatic tips and pay staff in person. We were fortunate and extremely lucky to complete a full world cruise earlier this year, we asked our cabin steward which method he preferred and the cash option was his preference. We paid our tips at the end of each sector, a few people we met said they were going to pay at the very end of the cruise, we did wonder if they would hand over the full and very much deserved amount. After 106 nights it would also be a very considerable amount. For the very special occasion of a full world cruise, how we wish the tips had been "built" in to the headline price of the cruise as we believe is the case with Cunard. We had of course budgeted for and allowed for the "extra tipping throughout the cruise.

    Smoking on P&O

    Ron, you would be amazed at the amount of the anti smoking brigade that buy duty free cigarettes from the shops onboard cruise ships.

    World Sectors

    Hi BaLA HK and Singapore are very easy to DIY, loved Vietnam but not sure where you are stopping. Ericann we too were on Aurora for 2013 for the world cruise and loved every minute, have booked Aurora for 2015 world cruise. Think the winter of 2014 will be a long one!!! Really envious of the 2014 world cruisers but hope they all have a wonderful time.

    Do You Have a Least Favourite Port?

    Not keen on Egypt, long coach journey to get anywhere and nowhere to go if you do not book a ships excursion. Felt really uneasy at the Valley of the Kings earlier this year.
