  1. Well done Mitch. Nice to have so much to look forward too, and stops the post cruise blues, because you have another holiday to look forward
  2. Advance Boarding for cruise ships

    As others say, with the correct loyalty status you get to board earley, not worth paying as depends on what time the ship docks, all the disembarking passengers have to have got off, and the turn around time before anybody can start embarking.
  3. Internet speed inquiry

    P and O internet is very slow, and £10 a day I don’t think it’s worth the money, you can get free internet in ports, the crew all know most cruise ports in the terminal will have lots of crew using it. Cunard internet is much better as a frequent passenger internet is free, so my view of £10 a day may not seem expencive to you
  4. P&O New Winter 2019-20

    Yes I do have shares have had for years, I also have said the price we pay for earley booking together with on board credit has in our experence been very good, this is bit like age old problem off how much did you pay? We are happy with the deals we have had, and got, also we like to budget our holiday spending so forward planning is all part of the game, We got our shares free, so onto a winner then at today’s market value.
  5. P&O New Winter 2019-20

    Do a it just the same as booking anytime, I for one would recommend booking earley we have had some good deals, I like to book stateroom we like, in a position on the ship we like. you often get good past passenger discount, extra on board credit and 5% deposit is good, I also like to know well in advance when we will be away. just my/our opinion
  6. Early booking tactics?

    You can only say as you find, as I have said the last three cruises we booked over a year before departing had gone up by a lot, I know this because we have had friends who wanted to come on two cruises we had booked the price had gone up so much, they did not book, yes it was a balcony cabin, maybe inside cabins are offered cut price,But if you want a balcony or above then in my experence best booked well in advance, even more so if they have new ports.
  7. Poor customer service

    Last March we book a p and o cruise for May this year, it is now a strictly cruise, Guess what? Our balcony cabin has gone up by over £1000. So don’t think it’s bad service. All the ports are the same so don’t think we are missing anything. just my opinion
  8. As I have said before, to some people moaning is a sport, to be played with anybody will listen, they think it makes them looked experienced travelers, used to the good life, in fact it makes them look stupid and to be avoided at all costs, but they are all around, in supermarkets any waiting room I made a complaint once on P and O we found under the bed, paperwork from a past guest which was full of personal information date of birth, passport number, bank details, credit card details, address etc,etc.our cabin had not been cleaned properly We only got an apology from the first officer. o
  9. Early booking tactics?

    I am a great believer in booking early, because you get the best price, with past passengers discount, and often very good O B C i have said so many times on this forum that from first release the price goes up and up, and even last minute does not go down to the first price. In the past last minute were very good, but in my experence they don't go down under what we have paid and you get the cabin you want.
  10. first time from Southampton

    Super breaks charge a lot more for rail journeys that the advanced book ahead from the train line, we also go a two together rail card which gives 1/3 off, we have this very good value
  11. Iceland in July

    We did Iceland in July a couple of years ago, the weather was mixed, we had one day cold and rain, needed mac, gloves it's was quite miserable the next, was sunny and bright no coat needed just a cardigan the next port was very warm only needed a t shirt, so yes just like England at Easter time. lots of people packed shorts, and complaining about the weather, my husband kept saying the clue is in the name Iceland. i really enjoyed that port, we did a whale safari boat,trip its was fantastic they are quite expensive and best booked on board. Booking it yourself is quite difficult hope this helps,

    I think your thinking of super breaks, they did rail and hotel offer. I am not sure if they are still going
  13. first time from Southampton

    I booked this package my self direct with Holiday Inn, yes train times are only available up to August but the timetable will then go to winter times, so I booked the package, £145 and have a ref number, when the train times are published I will contact the hotel with the time of arrival For us the trains to Southampton are at least hourly, So can't see a problem. hope this helps

  15. first time from Southampton

    On this topic, we have booked a train cruise and stay package at Holiday Inn for our cruise in December, the weather could be anything at time of year, the package is taxi pick up from the station, to the hotel, taxi to the terminal and pick up from the terminal back to station. With room and breakfast. I am sure others have done this, but it is a first for us.
