  1. St Petersburg Still Available?

    we are booked on Silhouette in May as yet nothing to say any different. Fingers crossed as this area is new to us
  2. Currency help

    Thank you, will get a small amount of each just before we go.
  3. Currency help

    we are going to the Baltics in May but not sure if I have to obtain all the different currencies, it would be used mostly for a drink whilst out sightseeing. I have got my roubles for St Petersburg as I have a tour to pay for. However do the other ports take Euros or Dollars or do we need to get the various Krona etc. Am I better off changing a small amount of pounds/dollars/euros to local currency at guest relations each day?? Your help would be appreciated.
  4. Credit card surcharge disallowed?

    We too book Celebrity and Bolsover have never charged us for using either Visa or Amex, unlike some TA's. This is why we keep coming back to Bolsover or Celebrity direct.
  5. Airlines Worst & Best

    Hi all, shorthaul we use Jet2, they are usually on time and their seats do NOT recline and come with 22kg allowance. we try to use British Airways as a first choice for long haul and if we can use Avios we do, however if not possible then for the Far East it would be first choice Etihad and then Emirates. We did like Monarch for short haul but sadly no more. will never touch Ryanair.
  6. first time from Southampton

    update on my post, we have now changed our package and are only staying the night at the Hilton and are going to park at the dock with ABP, thank you for discount Bolsover.
  7. Happy Christmas

    MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL looking forward to next years cruises and adventures
  8. How Do You Read Yours - Into The Blue Competition

    My hubbie did think about it !!!
  9. MSC ?? do I or dont I book

    We have been looking at MSC and they do have some good looking itineraries. However feedback so far is not good on their service levels. Has anyone out there had good experiences of them and had their other cruise line loyalty levels transferred to MSC too. HELP undecided
  10. first time from Southampton

  11. first time from Southampton

    Thanks for info so far, we are also going to Kristiansand, Copenhagan, Tallin, Helsinki, and Skagen, Sillhouette 7th May. any info gratefully received.
  12. first time from Southampton

    We have just booked a baltics cruise and would appreciate ideas on what to see and what to avoid. Would you use ship tours for St Petersburg or a private tour? Also we have never cruised from Southampton before, always fly cruised, where do you park and any recommendations for overnight hotels would be appreciated.
  13. Marella Dream

    we have cruised on this ship when it was Airtours Sunbird, apart from the loo loosing its vacuum we had 3 very good back to back holidays. Hubbie watched which lever the plumber pressed to recharge the system in the cupboard in corridor and after that we did the recharge ourselves. Hope you enjoy your cruise
  14. CUBA

    Years ago we did an Airtours cruise that went into Havana, what a lovely city, yes it was faded and needed renovation but lovely non the less. We felt safe wandering around the city and when we got lost we never felt threatened. It will be nice to go back to revisit, hope everyone else who goes enjoys it as we did
  15. Help and Advice. Needed

    Hi, we switched using this system over a year ago, we moved to Santander and we didn't have any problems, Apparently the outgoing bank forwards any transactions to your new account for 3 months before sending back to whomever, hope this helps, I am sure that some people may say otherwise, as its all electronic things can sometimes go wrong.
