    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

    cruise addict got a reaction from Davybe in 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!

    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.

    cruise addict got a reaction from towny44 in 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.

    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.

    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.

    The Costa coffee card has gone from £22.50 for 10 drinks to nearly  £11 per person per day. We used to share a card but there's no way we would get through enough coffee to justify paying this so well just pay as we go.

    cruise addict got a reaction from Davybe in Grand Harbour hotel   
    WE have stayed there prior to a cruise and like you did not think it was worth the money. Plus we asked them to order a taxi for us but they "forgot"! So we had to wait ages for one to turn up. 
    We now stay at the Premier Inn at West Key. We find that OK for one night and it is about half the price.

    cruise addict reacted to Oldworldtraveller in P&o gratuities   
    I was always under the impression that on a forum if you disagreed with something you attacked the post not the poster. 
    Cruisers have always moaned about those who have auto gratuities removed and of course some of those never replaced them with cash gratuities. As has been already mentioned, it is now a level playing field, everyone pays. P&O have come in line with many of the other cruise lines and I don't remember any discussion, only praise when they did it. How much a crew member earns in my opinion is a matter for them, it is certainly not something I need to know any more than I need to know the wages of airline staff. What I do need to know is how much my cruise or flight is going to cost me.
    I think the time has come to put this to bed. If anyone wants to tell me I am wrong and to B….r Off I will happily disappear into the blue yonder.

    cruise addict got a reaction from Countrygirl in 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.

    As a firefighter for 34yrs I would never dream of putting anything on charge and leaving it while not in the cabin or overnight whilst asleep seen the horrors that can happen and practice the same principle at home.

    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.
