Cool Cruiser

Cool Cruiser (2/15)

  1. Thanks for your reply, when were you last on Fred and which ship?
  2. We've Never sailed with Fred Olsen before, but watched a lot of YT videos and the World Cruise ambiance and itineraries look very appealing. One thing, that might seem trivial to others that read this is that my favourite tipple is Johnnie Walker Black Label. I drink 3 or 4 large ones each evening. Every cruise line I have sailed with thus far has stocked it, lucky enough for me, (HAL, Regent 7 sees, MSC, NCL, Princess, P&O, Vikings, RCL etc) It is super important to me that Johnnie Black stocked on board, or I won't take the cruise of this length. So, do any if you good people know if Black Label is sold on board?
  3. Hi all. I am looking at the Bolette WC2025. We've Never sailed with Fred Olsen before, but watched a lot of YT videos and the ambiance and itinerary looks very appealing. One thing, that might seem trivial to others that read this is that my favourite tipple is Johnnie Walker Black Label. I drink 3 or 4 large ones each evening. Every cruise line I have sailed with thus far has stocked it, lucky enough for me, (MSC, NCL, Princess, P&O, Vikings, RCL etc) It is super important to me that Johnnie Black stocked on board, or I won't take the cruise of this length. So, do any if you good people know if Black Label is sold on board?
  4. If I book a Princess Cruise with a travel agent, can I use the 20% FCC to spend on a drinks package?
  5. Yes. Wife always brings a cpl of packs. And tes bags!
  6. Yes, always make a cuppa last thing at night, with a chocolate biscuit too.
  7. I wonder if his concern about his insurance premium is because of his age? (I don't know it). I was chatting to one person of 78 that said that when you get to 80, your insurance cost is as much as the cost of a cruise.
  8. That's interesting, Hank. The poor passenger that was lifted off didn't even need to be evacuated. He had muscle strain! "I think you need in injection"
  9. Hi a friend of ours is looking at coming along on our next cruise, but is unsure if there are enough activities to fill her time on sea days. We can't remember everything, only the stuff that we took part in , so I was wondering if anyone remember to take pictures of any of the Princess Patter daily program for this cruise? If so - please post them many thanks.
  10. @deltaqueenie I apologise. You are quite right, we added one unscheduled port too. Oh well. One more cocktail...
  11. No we missed 2 out of 7 ports. Just tough luck.
  12. Yep, and also the chances of getting away from Iceland to get to the UK by Saturday.
  13. Think that the Captain may have chose the wrong time to announce that we had high winds when attempting to enter Akureyri, so had turned back out to sea when at the same time people were on their balconies and on deck and felt just a calm breeze & the Windy app was showing 8 knots. Then because of a medical emergency we sailed back to fjord and towards Akureyri and still the weather was calm, not even white tips on any waves. Not saying that the Captain was wrong in any of his actions, but the circumstances of his announcements confused people and they have a right to question it after spending thousands in $$$ I always imagined that we'd lose some ports this far north...luck of the draw.
  14. I will say that apart from the afore mentioned, IMHO the entertainment has been very good thus far. The shows and the musicians and artists in the smaller venues have been better than many cruises that we have done.
  15. For me the lesson learned on far northern cruises always choose a ship with a covered/ indoor pool, unlike Sky Princess. Otherwise everyone is squeezing into the inside bars, the outside pools and outside spaces are almost redundant. This weather problem would have been much more bearable if we had inside deckchairs and pools.
