    Back to Back

    Do you have to book both cruises at the same time to get a reasonable discount rather than adding one on at a later date?

    Afternoons on Board

    Hi LesleyB. Not everyone goes on excursions - some folk explore on their own & some stay on the ship. The tour buses drop you off where they pick up at ship although some ports give the option of getting off in the town centre & making your own way back to the ship either on foot or on the shuttle bus if one is provided. On return to the ship we usually go for lunch (if it's a half day excursion) & afterwards there will be some activities which are listed in the ship's paper which you get the night before delivered to your cabin. Horizon (P & O's paper) lists activities throughout the day from early morning till late at night including the gym classes, dancing classes, lectures, quizzes, film times, deck game competitions, card & craft get together a etc. There will be plenty for you to do & most things you just turn up but again the paper will say if you need to book. Have a wonderful cruise.

    Drinks Package

    The Costa coffee card has gone from £22.50 for 10 drinks to nearly £11 per person per day. We used to share a card but there's no way we would get through enough coffee to justify paying this so well just pay as we go.

    How Does Music Affect You

    The first time that I heard Time to Say Goodbye sung by Sarah Brightman I thought that it was beautiful & would be perfect for a funeral & since then I can't get the thought out of my head & feel tearful whenever I hear it.On alighter note Queen & Abba always make me feel happy. I will listen to more or less anything as long as it isn't so loud that you can't hear what anyone is saying like you sometimes get round the pool.

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    Were also on a 12 nighter at the end of March which we booked last autumn. The original price seemed quite low which is why we booked it & it's now about £250 higher but still seems fairly reasonable even though the OBC has also dropped a little bit.

    Tourist Tax in Venice.

    If it's a tax on day trippers only the ships might stay overnight which would be lovely from a tourists point of view but the mooring fees might be very high.
