    Where is everyone

    I had been thinking the same. It has been very quiet, I wish we were sailing off into the sunset our next cruise is in February and it seems a long way away.

    Britannia refit

    I purchased a new handbag from a well known department store about 3 weeks before going on Arcadia. So much for duty free shopping onboard. It was the same price on the ship that I had paid.

    Is cruising suitable for all?

    I am sure that you will prove me wrong, but why should a wheelchair user have priority, I can’t understand why they can’t wait there turn like everybody else. On a tour bus in Boston USA the whole bus of passengers had to wait for 3 wheelchairs users to get of the bus first. If I was in a chair I would have expected to get of last and not hold up the majority. Once on a cruise both Man and Wife each had an electric scooter they showed no concern for other passengers and would drive around at great speed, expecting everybody to move out of their way. One passenger commented that he would like to put a £10 note on the deck and see who would get off the scooter first in order to pick up the money.

    Is cruising suitable for all?

    I know just how you feel Captain Kidd 11, we felt that Aurora was looking more like a care home. I don’t have a problem with wheelchairs and understand that they are needed by some people. It is not the wheelchair uses that are the problem but those who do not understand their limits and are in denial of their capabilities. It is like seeing a driver struggle to get out of the car in order to fill it with fuel. They should not be driving

    We went a couple of years ago on Arcadia, super holiday. We did two tours in New York. The first evening we did the skyline from Brooklyn, then on to the Empire State Building the views at night from the top were magical. Then we finish the tour in Times Square at about 10.30pm after a walk around to Soak up the atmosphere we were taken back to the ship. The next morning we did the Statue of Liberty then on to Ellis island. Both brilliant. We booked the evening tour the first evening as we had been told the immigration can take forever. As we did not have anything booked during the first day we ended up being in the last group to go through. They started about 10.30 and we were cleared at 15.00. The whole ship, passengers and crew have to go through and nobody is allowed back on until the process is complete.

    Venice to ban Cruise Ships?

    We have sailed into Venice 3 times all on Arcadia and it was wonderful. The last time we did not get off the ship as I was not feeling to well. We spent our afternoon on the balcony watching the water taxis and buses sailing to and fro. We also saw a couple of cruise ship leave the port. Our observations were the Hugh amount of local traffic racing around so fast that they were causing more waves and wash then the 2 large cruise ship we saw leave.

    Britannia Fight Night?

    Sorry Sinbad10, but I do have a little sympathy with afcandrew, I have found from my own experience that it does seem to be the cheap deals that perhaps are more attractive to people who would not normally go cruising and want to go as a large group with other friends, I also see from comments above that the cruises to the Caribbean are mentioned maybe it is the amount of sea days when returning home. Maybe you have lucky and have never witnessed these problems.
