  1. You say you have had over 40 cruises with them. I understand the upset caused by the overcharging but what about all the times it went right. why concentrate on the one negative thing??
  2. I've just seen Holland America are another cruise line visiting Cuba. They have cruises on Veendam calling at Havana and the Caribbean and Florida which look interesting. I hope tourism seriously starts to help their economy and it gives passengers another opportunity of visiting a new place
  3. lovely man
  4. What an utter fiasco! money has been taken out of bank accounts and clients have to wait up to 7 days for refunds! i understand the upset and worry this has caused however after what happened yesterday in Manchester it certainly puts things into perspective!!!!
  5. you can buy special 'cruise' insurance where you can claim for missed ports of call. Its more expensive but it would cover you if it made you unhappy
  6. i love Fred Olsen and wondered if they were going down this route. I've been send information that they are doing the normal Danube, Moselle & Rhine area and are leasing a ship. Looks like just London departures though.
  7. Hi My relative has seen a great cruise itinerary with Voyages of Antiquity. She asked me for my advice however I dont know anyone who has been with this company. Has anybody cruised with these??
  8. Lately with P&O they have flown in artists who I must say have been first class. To think what you would pay to see these people back in the UK makes you think what good value cruising is.
  9. thanks for that will take a look!!
  10. I've just seen pictures of the brand new Sapphire Princess. I was unaware it was specifically built for the Asian market however on closer inspection with hardly any sunbathing areas on deck and plenty of karioke booths you can see the ship has been tailormade for their needs. There is mention of clients in the UK being able to book on ther Australian cruises before she takes her place in the Far East but from then on it seems we cannot book on this ship. I'm sure it wouldnt suit our European needs however its strange to know you cant book on it. is this really the case??
  11. I've always fancied trying a Regent Cruise as I've heard such good reports from my friends who've been. I imagine them to be luxurious, relaxing with good food. I've received some information about certain cruises being 'wellness cruises' offering things like:- body & soul experiences, wraps, scrubs, tai chi, visits to mud pools, hydrothermal pools on shore etc... IT SOUNDS WONDERFUL!!!!!
  12. my neighbour has called enquired about ncl today and had it confirmed that it includes drinks for every guest in the cabin and free gratuities!!!.
  13. I have always wanted to go to Alaska. I love Azamara and knowing they are going to Alaska in 2019 has started me thinking!!! I wouldn't go all that way without doing a tour so its good they offer these options too!! I need to see who's up for it and start saving!!!!
  14. to be honest this really is not my type of ship, far too large for my taste however my family members were looking to see if they could book a short cruise just as a taster. how disappointing to not be able to see the itineraries, info about the ship etc... so far they havent booked anything!!! lost sale for RCI who should have released information!!!
  15. fred Olen are a fantastic product, I've sailed with them twice and cannot fault anything they were lovely cruises. People are put off by the old ships which is a shame however a new ship with Freds would be an immediate hit and i for one would certainly look at booking on it!!!
