    Is The Bubble About To Burst

    It seems that the bubble for UK cruise passengers hasn't burst yet as we see further announcements for new ships for Oceania, Regent & Virgin Voyages who will start bookings soon. Although I'm not sure our little island will be able to cope to supply the demand the cruise lines expect

    Amsterdam Tourist tax?

    Seems to be the way of the world, at least its not the really high resort fees that some American cities charge, I am also with afc andrew on the cynical side I am sure the cruise lines will sell overpriced excursions into Amsterdam

    "The Cruise" is Back?

    As I fancy going to Australia I may have to watch this one with muted sound!

    Sprout flavoured tea, that's definitely one to avoid

    Must be getting close to the time you put the sprouts on to boil, the dog steals the Turkey and everyone has free licence to over do the eating and drinking Merry Christmas to all. Lets see what 2019 will bring

    Pensioners smuggled Drugs?

    I had seen a similar article a couple of weeks ago about staff being arrested in Miami onboard MSC Seaside but hadnt seen this until someone mentioned it today

    Fake reviews ?

    I suppose the simple answer is try it for yourself and make your own views, at least it removes the need for reviews in the 1st place

    Fake reviews ?

    I sometimes post reviews on Trip Advisor usually if the product has been good so that other people can get better recommendations to try flights, food or experiences, I agree that some people post when you can clearly tell they have never even set foot inside the premises but this is own to the reviews site to remove these people from their records. Some of the restaurant responses to dodgy reviews though are priceless

    No service charge on P&O Cruises

    Maybe the saving will come from 1 less receptionist as they wont have queues for all the people wanting to remove them

    No service charge on P&O Cruises

    Well we've all harped on enough on the forum about Tipping. Finally a cruise line has taken the bull by the horns and stopped them. Yes they've probably incorporated into the fare but good on them, safe to say though it still doesn't stop anyone giving staff a little extra if they exceed your expectations For once well done P&O. (I wonder if others will now follow suit)

    Ripped off in Venice.

    It's always the same, major sporting events or festivals as they know you are a captive market and they have to recoup the high costs of having a pitch it's always the poor customer(literally) that comes home with an empty wallet. There are definitely some tourist traps that fit into this Venice as mentioned. Raffles bar in Singapore is another.
