    Jane back on Friday.

    Have a fabulous time. I certainly did. Just remember that if moored at night near a public area to close the cabin curtains, many forget that the public can see in!!

    P & O going down hill

    In fairness the late night buffet has been a feature of cruising going back many years comprising of theme nights throughout the cruise.

    P & O going down hill

    Disappointing for you Leer but interesting to note you are comparing 2 ships within the same cruise line as opposed to different cruise lines. I suspect you will be going with Britannia in future.

    Viking Sky in SOS Emergency

    It begs the question, why were passengers allowed in a lounge where furniture was sliding around. I also wonder what would have happened if this engine failure had occurred in the same heavy seas but beyond the range of helicopters. Certainly wont do anything to promote sales amongst the population that have never cruised.

    Speciality Restaurants

    A couple of weeks ago I had a discussion with others regarding 'Speciality Restaurants' which I found interesting. One person said they were not 'Speciality' but rather restaurants serving MDR food, but cooked correctly. Another pointed out that in many cases they should be renamed 'Alternative Pay' restaurants as very few ships had 'Speciality' restaurants such as Sushi, Noodle, Curry, French etc. Another said for the money you pay you shouldn't have to spend more to get good food. What do others think!!

    Well done Bolsover on another deserved win at the Wave Awards last Thursday in London. It was a great night.

    Balcony Size

    This was an aft cabin I had on Splendour of the Seas. Now sails as Marella Discovery.

    "Freya" wrecks Naming Ceremony ?

    Lets hope it improves Carnival share price which in August 2017 was 5380 a share and is now 4108!!

    "Freya" wrecks Naming Ceremony ?

    Still wonder where they are going to get the passengers from to fill these large ships especially as very few are disposing of smaller, older tonnage and they are not sailing at full capacity. Maybe that is why so many of the new ships are heading for China. There are still plenty below 100,000 gt that offer good food, decent cabins and nice interiors without having to enter the premium market.

    Unfortunately it reminds me in too many ways of the large RCI ships, the shopping mall, pool area, speciality dining areas and the cabin could be from any of 20 ships. Many of the large new ships unfortunately are very similar and seem to have lost their individuality apart from the occasional feature. Just my opinion of course.
