    We are on her next week on A deck we like the high deck we were on this ship for the new year cruise, but she has now had a refit becoming adults only, so don’t know if that will make any difference apart from new carpets, and chairs.

    P & O going down hill

    I think most ships have lifts which don’t go every deck, some decks you are not able to walk along because of kitchens, restaurants, sun decks swimming pools, you get to know these as the cruise goes along, as I understand they have lots of complaints about the lifts on Britana. So was surprised to hear your complaint about Venturas lifts, as for late night buffet, have breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner, not many people would want yet more food surely?

    Newbie Cunard dining seating question

    Have been with Cunard over 20 times, and have always booked the cabin we like, and second sitting dinning and requested a table for 2 but not always possible to get however we have noticed more tables got 2 A’s they are more popular If you have booked the cheaper fare, you are allocated a cabin tow weeks befor sailing, and often don’t know until embarking which dinning time, or table number, Ihave never known anybody being able to change the booking if the balance has been paid, if you have paid the deposit only you may be able to change, but will then have to pay admin charge. My advice would be, leave it for now, and if your unhappy with what your allocated see the restaurant manager they are very, very accomadating Enjoy your cruise experence and welcome to the forum

    Viking Sky in SOS Emergency

    Thank God never experienced anything like that, rough seas yes, out ran a hurricane so four ports cancelled but nothing like a major problem I would not like to air lifted, put it another way, would not be air lifted. My heart goes out to the passengers and crew on board.

    Chocoholics buffet

    Yes I do agree we went once, and I felt sick at the amount people had on the plate and could not have got anymore in there mouth, then left a pileup mess only my opinion of cause.

    We have been Aurora twice and have had a very nice table for two with a window on second sitting but as always you don’t know what you have until embarking You can only hope, Good luck

    Amsterdam Tourist tax?

    We were in Amsterdam overnight in January this year, the Tax hadstarted then, we had no problem we were docked next to Queen Elizabeth (ship ) so two cruise ships, but the Elizabeth sails around midnight. From what we were told the port authorities wanted to regulate how many visitors went into the city, so it could be the port authority that had made the cruise ship dock away from the city, which means the cruise lines have no choice just my deduction of cause

    Are the Critics Right??

    I don’t think it’s demographic it’s more traditional I don’t understand half of the young stand up so say comics goes over my head. I find more slap stick or life observing more humorous Victoria Wood, Les Dawson style both sadly gone.

    Would you pack this??

    Funny the things you find you need, have difficulty finding and buying to solve a problem, then never travel without it But then never need it again, my holiday bag is full of such stuff, now out of date, or dry as bone, however seem to need the glasses repair kit, my sun glasses, or reading glasses I have one arm falling off or a screw missing so my pound shop kit gets used most holidays.

    Cruise ship on TV

    I thought it was interesting washing, drying,and ironing 1000 pieces of bedding in an hour, amazing I know shows my mentality I’m interested in the hospitality side, I have no experence in that area. i could not cope in a ship that size but can marvel in the operation side just my personal opinion

    Back to Back

    Thank you all for your information, we will now do the Dubai to Malta, we booked that one last year, then will the India from Dubai back to Dubai another time. yes I think P and O are missing a trick, because they would be getting a good deal from us,

    Back to Back

    Yes DQ it was a P&O I phone Bolsover, and she got back to me the next day, the cruise prior to the one already booked come up £300 saving on total price, that was not each , we think we will do the Indian cruise Dubai to Dubai at another time, we were not offered 10% off both cruises !

    Back to Back

    We have now got the back to back price, which was not impressive don’t think we will eg £300 saving after not having to have Dubai flights x 2 I always thought you got good discount. Thank you for all your help.

    Back to Back

    We are going to look at doing a back to back flying to Dubai, and then to India, back to Dubai, at which point we would do the cruise we have already booked doing the gulf and flying home from Malta. my question is do you have to leave the ship, and go through the embarkation process again? No something we have ever done

    Which Ship?Has that Wow factor?

    The most wow factor was the first time on the old QE2. It’s been said befor I know but I think your first ship is magic, and maybe sets the bar high nothing has eclipsed it for me
