    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

    Drunk's on Planes.

    Yes on a flight to Portugal with a large Hen Party, have to admit it was quite funny as we also were on the same flight home with them, very quiet on the way home!!!

    Extension leads

    Maybe Davybe that the poor sole putting 50p's in the meter cant keep pace with people charging their scooters together with all the multiple devices we all take these days

    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.

    P&O Summer 2020 and IONA!

    I kind of share your views AFCAndrew, these places with smaller ships do seem crowded with the arrival of 3000+ people, so the thoughts of 5000+ could be too much. Or are P&O expecting a lot of their passengers to stay onboard and use the numerous facilities being mentioned about on IONA

    Was BoJo Right

    It is a case again of not being able to say anything about anyone. Boris has his own views which he has voiced, others may think the same but either keep it to themselves or only say it to friends in the confines of their own homes. Donald Trump seems to be able to get away with it!!! Lets be all honest and put it in perspective it seems OK for some but not for others, I don't see that someone standing in the street with a megaphone forcing their beliefs on the passers by seems to be stopped.

    Iona's new style cabins

    So P&O are trying something a little different. Conservatory Mini Suites. Described as a place to chill out which will be cool and shaded which can be left open or closed off depending on the time of day or how you are feeling. Do fellow forum members think this will be a hit as opposed to the traditional balcony cabin?

    Southampton Car Parking - confused?

    I used AB parking for my last trip and the car park was conveniently located adjacent to the terminal and luggage didnt have to be moved to far from the car to the terminal, as always we are spoilt sometimes with the drop off service of CPS but this works just as well as at least you park your on vehicle

    i love the political correctness, never did I see a comedian called 'Cucumber Emery'

    Aurora refit

    Ooh Captain Kidd as cucumber Emery would have said 'you are awful' Although the likelihood is that your probably right, and no doubt after the last 2 times they will sell the ship when they already have a large amount of people already booked on it!!!!

    What will the outcome be in Venice?

    I like the picture Trent Ann, if you go at dusk you would probably be able to get a shot with no people in it, I have several from my recent visIt on the days when no ships were in port, but as others have said if you embrace the tourism pitfalls come at a price, I can agree that there should be a limitation to the number of ships in both places but cant see all the competing cruise lines agreeing to it. It might end up being the usual MONEY TALKS!!
