    Over 70s

    It was a new policy as our usual insurer (AA) went up quite a lot. The Staysure one also gave us 15 months for the price of 12 & as we have cruises booked for late Nov this year & Feb next year we needed to cover them. Assuming our June cruise is cancelled & that we get FCC we quite like the look of one in May next year so that would be covered as well.

    Over 70s

    We took out a new annual policy with added cruise cover last week with Staysure. It doesn’t cover the virus but my husband is over 70 & there was no trouble getting cover.

    Annual insurance

    I should also add that we’ve gone with Staysure Insurance this time & they are currently giving 15 months cover for the price of 12.

    Annual insurance

    We renewed our annual insurance last week as we have 2 cruises booked in the next 12 months as well as the one in June which we’re still waiting to be cancelled. The price hadn’t risen too much but it doesn’t cover Coronavirus.

    How is everyone

    Were also keeping to ourselves & so far all is well. Our garden has never been in such good shape at this time of year , the good weather having got me out there earlier then usual. We're still waiting for P & O to cancel our cruise in early June as we would like to use the FCC on a Baltic cruise next May. Our next cruise after June is in November so fingers crossed that things will back on track by then. Keep safe & keep well everyone.🛳 ⚓️

    Scarlet Lady

    Not for us either. From what I have read it’s more geared up for younger travellers with a tattoo parlour etc. The furnishing looks as if it’s been bought from Ikea - nothing wrong with Ikea but the seating doesn’t look padded enough for comfort.

    P & O - On line checkin

    Hopefully you can still check in with a real person at the terminal. I struggle with downloading photos ( still use a proper camera) & have never put my credit card details on line.

    We’ve got 2 booked for 2021. Price is guaranteed so no worries there & I don’t think that there will be any problems at the ports & if I’m wrong I’m quite happy to stay on board.

    Happy New Year

    Happy New Year to everyone from us too. Also as our local supermarket has Easter eggs in all shapes & sizes may we be the first to wish everyone a very happy Easter!

    We got back on Monday & since then I’ve put the tree & decorations up, posted the cards, iced the cake & sorted the last of the presents out. Oh. & booked my first flu jab. Time for a Baileys I think😂

    Costa coffee

    We're just back from Aurora and a small latte etc was £2.60. You still get complimentary cake etc. but no more Costa cards.

    Thanks, afcandrew. I’ll give it a try.

    On the other hand on our July cruise we had to hurry up to Reykjavik due to a medical emergency so had an extra 1\2 day & overnight there & also got back to Southampton a day early due to ship maintenance work so had overnight there (we weren’t allowed off the ship). The missed port of Dublin changed to an overnight in Cobh but working out the new port charges would have taken some doing 🤔

    I also got the email yesterday & had a go at using it. The email mentioned the cruise that we’ve got booked in Oct 21 & that worked but the one we’ve got booked before that doesn’t work. I too found it strange that the dob goes from 1882 (but it made a nice change to feel younger) but it also seemed strange that the old personaliser started with babies who wouldn’t be using it & made me feel older every year as I had to scroll further down😂 It does seem to be more complicated to use & I still haven’t found “brochure in the post” box that Dysart Cruisers mentioned. The whole P & O website seems to have got a lot harder to use & a lot worse to find anything in my opinion.

    We’ve missed ports due to bad weather but also due to maintenance work at the port & most recently we missed out Dublin as the ship couldn’t get into its allocated berth.
