  1. We had this happen to us last year on a cruise to Figi. Our suite case went missing at the airport in England. When we arrived in Australia one case light,and panic stations. My wife was all set for getting straight back on the plane for home.We where on Princess cruise and they were brilliant. They gave us on board credit to cover essentials and offered me a tuxedo for the formal night and free laundry. Our case followed us around the islands for ten day days befor it turned up.The one good thing is my wife does all the packing and she shares both our clothes between the two cases so we had something to wear.
  2. This happened to me on a P&O charter I per booked my seats then on our return flight thay changed the plane so our seats did not exist so they upgrade us. Well worth the money.

    Yellow Fever Exemption Certificate

    We went to the Amazon about five years ago and flew on a P&O charter flight from Doncaster. P&O staff checked the yellow fever certificate as you checked in. They told us no certificate no flight. We holidayed in Cape Verdi about three years ago and nobody mentioned anything about yellow fever certificate. It sound like everybody as a different answer.
  4. We have just seen the northern lights at the beginning of October. Absolutely amazing. According to the guild she said there is an 11 cycle with the light but never mentioned anything about them disappearing.

    NCL Gratuities

    Just returned from a trip aboard NCLBreakaway. Gratuities for all passengers 3years or above were 13.95 dollars this worked out at £10.98 per passenger per day and if you were in the Haven class it was 15.50 dollars and this worked out to £12.24 a day. The ship has approx 4000 passengers and £10.98 works out at over £307,000 per week. This divided between the 1500 crew members works out at over £200 each for a 7 day trip. What my point is I thought Gratuities were tips. £30 a day tip is not bad. This was my 15th cruise and have always paid may Gratuities but I think this cruise line is asking the passengers to pay half the crews wages.

    Cruise to Bermuda

    This is an idea as we are stopping in a hotel for three nights before we board the ship so we could have a word with them. Thank you Popsicle for your reply.

    Going Ashore By Tender

    Thanks for your remarks but I meant waiting in a room for 2/3 hours with another 500 people or more waiting till your number is called out so you can get on a tender which may only take 15 minutes to get to shore, as any body else experienced this.
