    Azamara Quest - Using Room Credit

    You can give it a try but, I would like to bet that hidden in their T&Cs there will be a get out. So be lucky and keep us all posted.

    Using your Mobile.

    We go on cruises to get away from these things. It is on for the 200 mile trip to Southampton and home again. I text my son when we are on the ship as he likes to know we have arrived safely. It then goes in the safe until the return trip home. Why bother with a cruise just to keep finding out what is going off at home?

    Best price booking.

    Is this for the same Princess grill suite ie same deck, same position (front,back,middle) as prices differ. All cruise lines advertise the lowest price to pull you in then when you have found what you want the price is always more.

    Cunard Drinks Package.

    On the Queen Victoria in 8 weeks, does anybody think that they will be rolling this out to her and Elizabeth any time soon? Does this include drinks with evening meals or is this excluded?

    Advance Boarding for cruise ships

    As we do not like to rush and that we have over 200 miles to travel, we set off the day before and spend the night in the Newbury area. The next morning we take our time have breakfast somewhere and just trundle down to the ship aiming to get there between 11 and mid day. Last year in July on Queen Elizabeth got to Mayflower terminal at 11:30. Cases gone walked inside filled out health form and was called to board. Mid day sat having a cuppa waiting for lunch service to start. Well done Cunard.
  6. On the Queens Victoria and Elizabeth you cannot get into the Britannia restaurant without the gel. In the Lido buffet there is usually some one at each end with the gel. As I have a skin problem I should not be using the gel but do as I hope not to catch anything. Also at the doors of all public loos there is a sign above a box of tissues saying use these when opening the door and there is a waste bin to put it in. I always wash after using the loo but you see many men walk out without doing so after using the shed or urinal the dirty sods.
  7. It takes 14 days for the flu bug to incubate so you got it at the beginning not the end. Hope you are both well now.

    Would you pay to reserve your sunbed?

    WE always book a balcony cabin, so they can charge what they want for a sun bed I do not care. We have been to a small all adult hotel in Mallorca that has a sign at the pool entrance that states it opens at 9 o'clock if any towels out they will be removed if leaving beds for more than half an hour for lunch please tell attendant or towels will be removed. In two weeks we saw many towels removed. When they came back and saw the attendant he just pointed the sign and walked away. this should happen at every poolside.

    How are cruise ships built?

    Most new ships come in kit form from several yards and also the cabins (state rooms) e.g. bathrooms are pre made off site. As Old Graf says go to YouTube.

    New Ship for P&O

    All these new ships are more like a floating fair ground than a cruise ship. They are all moving away from the older passengers. Do they not think that one day the kids leave home? We need adult only ships and we need them now.

    St Petersburg

    We did the Baltic to St Petersburg last June with Cunard. You do not need a visa if you pre book tours with the ship or credited tour company in St Petersburg. We did a tour each day with the ship. First day was a coach tour round all the sites getting off for photos. The next day was a trip on the river. On this you see some of the same places from a different angle also some you can only get to by water. Both guides were very good with good English spoken.

    New Ship for P&O

    Will these 2 new ships be like Britannia? No deck for us oldies to walk round. I need my 3 times round to get in a mile a day to keep the heart going. If so they will not be filling them with my wife and me.

    We booked a Baltic cruise with Cunard Queen Elizabeth sailing June last year. We booked on release day and got all we asked for. Some friends Who late book every holiday wanted to come with us so 8-10 weeks before sail date went on Cunard site to find just the odd grill suite. It did not work out for them to try and late book. The early bird catches the worm me thinks.
  14. My first cruise was on a proper ship HMS Eagle 1967. With a flight deck a quarter of a mile long, she was a great ship. With a cruise line it was on the Queen Victoria 2009.
