  1. I've just read on P&O's facebook that Aurora will become an adult only ship from next year. I personally see this as a positive change and that they have listened to their customers after they announced the 2 huge ships that are joining the fleet. What does everyone else think?
  2. I've seen recently that Thomas Cook are starting to offer a service where you can pay to reserve your sunbed. They will send a pool plan a few days before you travel for you to pick your sunspot. I know sunbed wars do happen and people take it very seriously but would you pay £22 to reserve your sunbed? Is this something you want to see introduced on cruises?
  3. Are drinks packages value for money?

    if you wait and add on the drinks package when you board could you use the on board spend for this?
  4. Singapore & it's Treasures!

    This is a really good read born free, just booked flights to Singapore so I found it really useful.
  5. Airlines Worst & Best

    Hi David Do you find it more value for money to use them on short haul? We've been looking at them for long haul but once you've added the taxes, it's not a cheap bargain at all. Just trying to figure the best way to make the most of them
  6. Airlines Worst & Best

    I started collection Avios last year, not used any yet though. Is it worth it? just a little wary of it for some reason.
  7. Airlines Worst & Best

    I usually fly with Ethiad & Emirates when travelling Asia/Australia way, both amazing airlines, really couldn't fault them, especially with Emirates 30kg baggage as standard. Recently flew Virgin to USA and didn't find them as good. My friends parents just flew Qatar and really rates them. Their fares are really reasonable too so will try them next time. For short haul, I'd go Easyjet over Ryanair if I had the choice.
  8. Queen Mary 2

    https://www.bolsovercruiseclub.com/blog/crossing-oceans/ This article is on Bolsover Cruise Club site about a Transatlantic crossing. sounds like there's plenty of things to do.
  9. Any " must see or do's " in Barbados ?

    We did the turtle trip and the guide was pointing out all different sights on the way and i always remember him pointing out The Cliff restaurant and saying its call this because you want to jump off a cliff when the bill comes
  10. I think they do it on the first cruise in December.
  11. Give them a call Allie, I think they have a tickets team who can probably help you, better to just double check.
  12. Cunard in Alaska?

    The itineraries are incredible. Something different to consider for sure. It's one of those once in a life time places for many people.
  13. Hotel in nyc

    I've stayed at the Westin Time Square, really nice hotel and excellent location, felt it was overpriced though when we went but when i checked it a couple of weeks ago for a family member i thought it was quite reasonably priced. x
  14. It’s not uncommon to board a ship to find that cabins are not yet ready to accept new passengers. Due to the size of modern day ships it’s understandable really, especially when previous passengers are still departing the ship at around 9.30-10am and new passengers are welcomed on board from midday. I expect it now, so am I always ready to head for a bite to eat or a drink when I get on board whilst I wait. I also sometimes take a couple of bits in my hand luggage if we have flew to a hot destination, like a change of clothes. It’s part and parcel of the holiday for me now but I’m interested in knowing who people think are the best at getting this turned around? Who regularly turns the cabins round quickest and who provides the best services for guests whilst you wait? From my own experiences, I think Princess are good at this. Royal Princess was impressive the last time I was on board. I think Royal Caribbean do well too which i didn't really expect given the size of their ships. I’ve never had to wait long with either of those lines, in fact I have had times with Royal Caribbean where I’ve boarded and my cabin was ready and waiting for me.
  15. BRAND NEW Celebrity Edge in Europe for 2019

    The itineraries look really lovely for her. It's my Mum's big birthday in the Jan of 2019, i think she will be eyeing up one of these for sure, trying to get her to try other company's other than P&O!
