    Bolsover Cruise Club

    Now Cunard have suspended their sailings until 15th May, it seems the advice given by WShutt not to cancel your booking has been proved right. According to Cunard's website, any cruises which have been affected by the cancellation are being offered 125% FCC or 100% cash refund by completing their on-line form. If this is the case you should receive your 100% refund. I understand it’s disappointing to miss a much anticipated cruise. I was due to sail on 6th April and Bolsover were most helpful with my cancellation These are unprecedented times and we are all in it together.

    I’ve booked through Bolsover .... filling in my personal details on-line when the ‘brochure by post’ box appeared, which has now been removed 🤷‍♀️ I feel a phone call coming on 😂

    I’ve just been into ‘My Cruises’ & the ‘brochure by post’ appears to have been removed. Having booked a select fare, I used the option ‘brochure by post’ for my upcoming cruise on 19th April, just waiting now to see if anything arrives. In the meantime I’ve booked one excursion on-line which appealed to me, just in case it sold out before my brochure arrives.

    Spirit of Discovery

    Love him or loathe him!! Solent Richard has posted an excellent review on his blog, with numerous photos of his recent 16 day Mediterranean cruise on Spirit of Discovery. Looks a lovely Ship, anyone else sailed on her yet?

    Hair straighteners

    I’ve never had a problem taking hair straighteners onboard P&0, Princess or Royal Caribbean in the past. Due to sail in April for the first time on Azura after her refurb - I’ll be packing them as usual.

    Glad I’m not alone, I was beginning to wonder if it was me 🤪

    Only ever happened to me once on a Princess Cruise where a change of Port was necessary due to the lack of berths at Genoa. Fortunately for me, Genoa was substituted with a visit to the pretty port of Santa Margherita, as I was planning a visit to Portofino this worked in well. Passengers who were hoping to visit Milan were not quite as happy. As you say HLM inclement weather is beyond cruise lines control. Again with Princess, Cannes was on the itinerary as a tender port, which unfortunately had to be cancelled, the Captain announced he could get us ashore in the morning, the problem would be getting us back onboard in the afternoon due to the weather forecast in the area. Disappointed - yes of course, but I’m happy to go with an experienced Captains knowledge.

    single cruisers turned over again

    Just been doing a bit of cruise browsing and the itinerary for 14 night cruise on Iona October, 2020 caught my eye. Checking the prices for single occupancy balcony, this is what I came up with. Cheapest balcony with double occupancy £1372pp = £2744 Same cabin single occupancy £2064 .... quite a decent discount. Single balcony cabin £2111 .... £47.00 more expensive. WHY !! This is one of the reasons solo travellers feel they are being fleeced.

    Be careful what you wish for - sharing a cabin can test even the best of friendships 😜

    Britannia Serenity Pool

    There wasn’t a charge for the Serenity Pool/Bar area when I was onboard in April this year. Should you choose to visit the adjacent Retreat area this is chargeable, I believe on a daily or weekly basis. Hope this helps.
