    What's with the silly pop up???

    No pop ups this end either. Is it a Windows isdue rather than an Apple OS one?

    Would you pack this??

    Thanks Davybe, what an interesting article. I think everyone should carry duct tape as it can be used across the mouth to prevent all thise boring comments being made, wrapped round the forms to have gratuities being claimed and placed. Across lift doors to prevent unauthorised access by those terrible physically fit passengers getting in πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. I am sure there are other uses which others can add.

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    With flexible pricing you cannot tell what will happen. More people book summer holidays after Christmas so the prices will go up. Sometimes there is a drop 12 weeks before sailing but it is all dependent on the popularity of the cruise. If there is a cruise you really want to go on, and the price is right for you, book and do not check for change. Just enjoy the cruise as there will aleays be someone who has paid less.

    How Does Music Affect You

    I do not mind any music provided it is well played. I must say that on some cruises this had proved a difficulty.

    Renewing a Passport.

    At least, with the Post Office, you know there are not any problems with your application and your photo is ok. Get things wrong and you can be playing ping-pong.

    Princess cruises from UK

    I booked a 7 day cruise, for next year, sailing from Southampton just as a taster. Looking forward to the change. 😊😎

    No service charge on P&O Cruises

    I agree with this. Discount us calculated on a per item basis after OBS has been fully used. As auto grats were charged on day 1 then it effectively came off any OBS. I am lucky as I get shareholder OBS. If you take auti grats off then spending OBS takes longer before discount is applied to amounts charged to your credit/debit card. I am certain that OBS will be reduced in due course to compensate fir the removal of autograts as this would help to balance the figures.

    No service charge on P&O Cruises

    It just goes to show some threads never die! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    We were on her in August and must say he cruise was just as good, if not better, than when we first went on her 8 years ago. She has a personality of her own which is like Marmite but we have always enjoyed her. The quality of food, like all ships, is dependent on who the Executive chef is. I could name one P&O chef from whom we have never had a good meal including a 30 cruise! Bearing in mind how many people sail on her each year there are bound to be a few who have bad experiences but that is life. There are many more who love her.

    Grand Harbour hotel

    We use the Holiday Inn Express junc 7. Price is reasonable with quiet comfortable rooms. Breakfast only ok but we do not need much as we have more than enough food on the cruise.

    Fake reviews ?

    I usually write and honest opinion on Trip Advisor and read other comments as well. Never been paid for them and certainly never tried to bribe for discounts etc.

    Just Curious !!

    Well all I can say is with all the discounts and OBS I got I was perfectly happy rspecially as I uograded the cabin for the same price I eas expecting to pay. In the overall scheme of things Β£120 on Β£7k is not a huge amount or perhaps I look at tge orice charged by the cruiseline and am just happy if I get any reduction. Let’s hope you get the excellent service from your non BCC agent!

    I don’t understand about the service bitπŸ€”. I can only say all service provided has been excellent and certainly worth more than penny pinching just to save a few β€œbob” on a cruise. My consultant us the best and this is proven as she is an awards winner 😘

    Passport change

    An easy solution would be to charge all people entering the country Β£20 using a card scanner. Quick to set up and easy to manage - just swipe your card and you are in! No credit/debit card no entry. Simple! πŸ€”πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
