    Where is everyone

    It has certainly been quiet lately. We’re off on Aurora in November. Hope all goes well for you Davybe.

    Lisbon: where does the ship dock

    Take care on the Metro RayO. When we tried it three people, one of whom was allegedly blind, bumped into my husband as they got off the train. When we got on he discovered that his bumbag had been unzipped & his wallet had gone from underneath his sunglasses. It was very skilfully done but has tainted Lisbon for me ever since.

    Worth Watching (Maybe)

    Nor would we. I don't think we're posh enough cos having a butler would drive me mad (hands off my dirty washing- don't wrap it up when clean either) & I'd we terrified of breaking something!βš±πŸ”¨πŸ˜’

    More about Iona

    I wondered about that as well. The information on the dining options makes it sound really good but gives no clues about which are included & which are extra except for ones that we already know from other ships e.g. Glass House.

    Britannia Fight Night?

    In the paper today it says that a witness said that people were drinking as much as they could with their unlimited drinks packages. If true maybe P & O should halve the package prices & at the same time halve the number of alcoholic drinks that come with the package. That could lead to more people buying the package as with unlimited soft drinks & coffees & perhaps 3 or 4 alcoholic drinks it would suit more people. If you drink more you could then buy it. It would stop people who drink a lot of alcohol just to get their money's worth & are perhaps not used to drinking so much every day from getting so drunk.

    Britannia Fight Night?

    We've only seen drunks once & that was on a short cruise full of stag & hen parties but never any fighting. We usually go on adult only ships which seem to be full of older people so I wonder if there is more likely to be trouble on family ships with large family groups when arguments can break out.

    Booking excursions

    If we want to book excursions we try to do 1 per month to spread the cost a bit. Popular ones can get booked up quite quickly.

    Just back off the Aurora

    There's 2 more cruises on Oriana after we get back so if you're on the last one we unfortunately won't meet. I'll miss Oriana but we're hoping Aurora will become our new favourite.

    Welcome to the forum lolandjen. Oriana is our favourite ship too & we're on her in July.

    Icelandic currency

    Thanks Jenjen, we're really looking forward to it as it will be something a bit different although it will be sad to say goodbye to Oriana.
  14. We're visiting iceland & the Faroe Islands in July & aren't sure if we will need local currency. We've booked shore excursions with refreshments so will probably only need money for souvenirs. Would we be ok to just use a credit card rather than just getting say Β£100 worth of currency which we might not use especially in the Faroes? Do the ship's carry these 2 currencies if we decide we really do need some? Thanks.

    I still can't get it to show me any prices at all.
