    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.

    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˜‚

    I as recommended by a friend to BCC. Since then I automatically judt call them as they are so professional . The one to one consultant works for me as I ask for her when I phone or just message her and get an almost immediate answer. Nener had such good service before. 😊

    Passport change

    I wuite agree - USA and Russia have been the worst but I do remember Norway deciding to check one year and there are still EU countries requiring passports to be carried so it is not true β€œfree” movement.

    Is it me?

    I was under the impression in maths there is now a requirement to estimate and answer which requires either written or mental maths rather than mechanical dependence . I seem to remember covering this teaching GCSE Maths a couple of years back.

    Passport change

    In effect this means a passport on lasts on 9 and a half years. You have to have 6 months left on the passport at the end of a cruise to be allowed on the ship.
