    Ijmuiden - location and excursions

    There is nothing to see in ljmuiden. We spent two days there at Christmas on a p and o cruise. Take the frequent free shuttles into Amsterdam, they even ran during the night.

    Venice to ban Cruise Ships?

    They will want to ensure that the passengers get into the old town because that is where we spend our money!

    Booking excursions

    I have just received a email from P & O giving details of excursions for our Christmas cruise. We usually get these details about 12 weeks before we go., not six months. Considering we have not yet had our summer cruise or paid for the Christmas cruise I cannot understand what is going on. No way will we booking and paying for excursions yet.

    Port Queries

    Cartagena you can walk into the town. Just a short stroll. The other ports you will need a taxi or public transport. They are quite away from the port. There is a shuttle bus, but not into Rome. Perhaps consider an excretion.

    The Licence fee?

    I have signed the partition and written to my MP. Yes we can afford to pay for our TV licence, less spending money on the next cruise!!!! But so many elderly people who do not get pension credit but still only get a small pension will have to decide what to go without to pay the fee. Next thing I suspect will be bus passes. we are any easy group to hit as no one really sticks up for us and we can hard,y go on strike.

    Time to Wave Goodby

    We have seen this. Also some passengers only just make the ships departure and just stroll back to the ship, no urgency. We always aim to be back on board at least an hour before the scheduled departure time unless we are on a tour when we know the ship will wait for the coach.

    Cruise ship on TV

    We watched the recording last night and to my surprise I found it interesting. Yes, some of the program was a repeat of what has previously been shown on other cruise show but there were also bits that I did not know about.

    Drinks Package

    It would be a waste of money for us. We have wine with our dinner and another drink in bar later. £80 per couple per day, P&O you must be joking.

    P&o gratuities

    I am only too pleased that the tips will be included in the price.. seems the fairest way to me. What is the problem with it??
  19. Thank you, very useful information.

    Using your Mobile.

    I take the mobile with me, but do not use it while I am on a cruise. I can managed to have a holiday without having contact with home. If there is an emetgancy I would expect them to contact the cruise line with a message, then I would use the mobile.

    "She fell of a Cruise Ship?"

    I could not agree more especially when she was interviewed and said” I will be famous now”

    No service charge on P&O Cruises

    This is good news. If it is included in the price everyone pays. Much better for us and the crew, I hope. We will have to wait and see if we loose OBC, free parking etc. Time will tell.

    P&O Summer 2020 and IONA!

    Too large for us. It will be a nightmare embarking and disembarking. I have enough to trouble trying to find the suitcases now!!!

    Yobs afloat

    P and O want to put a stop to this otherwise they will lose their regular passengers. We all want to have a good time but not at the expense of spoiling it for other people. I personally have never seen this type of behaviour on board and do not want to.
