    P&O prices on the Rise??

    Because P&O have gone up so much for next year we have been looking at Azamara, they come out good value because it includes every thing, glad we booked Dubai last year for next March, perhaps the fly cruises are better value but we like sailing from Southampton and back however not at the cost of another cruise. Just my opinion as usual

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    I do so agree we went on the Aurora in June, the price went up by £500 each, but the same cruise next year has gone up by £1200 each think that is because the grants have come off, just my opinion as usual

    Canaries in Early December

    Aurora is a lovely ship, great crew, good atmosphere we were on her in June From experence the weather in your ports should be good warm sunshine calm seas, but sailing from Southampton could be cold and bit choppy at best, we had very choppy waters when we did it a few years ago. Enjoy your cruise

    Just back off the Aurora

    Maybe from the last cruise Aurora did, because the crew were going off sick as well as many passengers, also 3 deaths, that we know off so could be more. think it’s just one of things, I don’t know the cause, we are just making educated guess.

    Just back off the Aurora

    Hi Sinbad, how strange your wife having a chest infection, I put the problem on Aurora down to the refit of carpets, getting fibre in the air con, did you have many others on your ship with this respiratory problems? hope your wife is soon better
  6. We have just disembarked from 19 nights on the Aurora, lovely cruise good food, and service, good cabin and cabin steward, other passenger, all friendly and chatty, the one downside was the amount of illness, both crew and passengers went down like flys with chest infection, some people even hospitalalised the air con does not help, however we did have a nice time

    Hate packing

    Why do I find packing so stressful, never used too, then cleaning the house top to bottom I have utmost respect for anybody who does World cruise, never thought. About it befor but boy sorting out all that goes with being away for that length of time I take my hat off you. Tomorrow when we embark it will be a relief.

    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
