  1. https://ask.pocruises.com/help/PO/life-on-board/drinks_package You will need to click on the link to view. But the top priced one will cost £40 pp per day. with an upper limit of 15 drinks. Not good value for us but some may find it worth the money....Davybe

    Do you not feel that by restricting the threads to mainly cruise related stuff, we are limiting ourselves when we do not post other things that may interest others....Davybe

    Thanks for all you good wishes, and here is an update. I have kept of dialysis for over 20 years, but knew it had to come,eventualy,this Tuesday they fitted the pipework in my tummy for the dialysis , I have opted to have it at home ,and to start with I will have 4 half hour seasons per day, and maybe go onto an overnight treatment in the future. We will be able to take holidays even cruises as it is DIY treatment, all I need is the fluids to get delivered to the ship, (Think a world cruise may a bit much?) All praise to the NHS staff and renal nurses at our Hospital ,and my family....Davybe

    Celebrity Perk changes from 19/11/19

    Wonder if this has come about due to overpricing their cruises in the first place? We have always weighed up the package offers, not always value for money, and to be honest paying £130 per couple per day for some perks are taking the p@@s .as you can get a cruise for one of you at that price.....Davybe
  10. Just been look at Bolsover's web site and there are some very nice savings to be had by booking a Guaranteed Cabin with Celebrity Cruises. Quite supposed just how much cheaper these cabin are, you will get very little choice other than which grade of cabin you will get, and there will be no drink package? Not a problem if you are in the Captains club and qualify for the Free Drinks party each night. The Food and entertainment will exactly the same . Maybe worth a look....Davybe

    single cruisers turned over again

    If you can be flexible and not to fussy about who and where you cruise, then a decent agent should be able to keep you informed of any "offers " for singles the cruise lines may have coming up. But if your sticking with Cunard or P&O then you sadly you may miss those offers. We were on a cruise a few years ago when Cunard offered past guests inside cabins for single occupancy for less than £50pn including coach travel, use a decent agent....Davybe

    Wheelchair help on P&O?

    We will be taking a wheelchair for the first time on our next cruise. Do P&O provide any help getting on and off the ship in Southampton? Celebrity provide help from the minute you enter the terminal and get you to your cabin. Thanks in advance ....Davybe

    Cunard Drinks Package.

    From Cunards web site FAQs On QM2 only other ships have some drinks packages. I do wonder what the Terms and conditions will be seems a dear to me, and the top $69 a day one will that include soft drinks and Coffees?.....Davybe
  14. Nice read as usual Mitch ,thanks for posting. We had no TV or very limited earlier this year ,never bother with the internet on the ship....Davybe

    Where is everyone

    As you put it just an opinion. You may have hit the nail on the head when referring to P&O ,particularly Tipping threads seemed very popular, and anyone trying to start anything political and in the news seems to get ignored . Not hard to see interest drop when no one can be bothered to answer....Davybe

    Arcadia Funnel soot

    They had the soot problem on the new ship Britania ,and all this equipment needs servicing ,another area companies cut back on.....Davybe

    Responsible drinking

    As the drink package is included in most deals ,it is not a problem. we get the "Elite " captains clubs 2 hour drink deal which is enough for us,Sadly cruise lines take the Micky as we are a captive audience ,and looking at cruise prices with or without a drink package they are pricing themselves out of the market,IMO....Davybe

    thomas cook flight change

    Arcadia Funnel soot

    The soot was always a problem on Arcadia , it use to be a black soot /grit ,we were told it was because of the type of oil they used as fuel. (The Cheapest dirtiest that money could buy). As for Arcadia cough ,swore I would never go back on her having had two bad chest infections ,we have friends who are the same , You may get a better response by joining a P&O forum ...Davybe

    Thomas Cook

    Police are warning that the Scammers are upend running ,and claiming to get you a full refund if your a Thomas Cook Client, You just need to give them your bank details...Davye😂

    Thomas Cook

    Must be dreadful to be turned out of your hotel, after paying for a holiday ,unless you cough up more, hoping to get it back later? We booked flights years ago and after paying the agent went bust, we got the same seats on the same plane but it cost us £50 each more. Celebrity are contacting people who are booked on TC flights trying to sort something outs presume other cruise lines are doing the same. How do the people justify their salaries whilst running up horrendous depts....Davybe

    Lisbon: where does the ship dock

    We were quite surprised how Lisbon had gone down over the years, our last visit March/April we saw rough sleepers, more shops closed and beggars, one getting really abusive when we would give her no money? sign of the times I guess....Davybe
