  1. I just have a thing about people making up laws to suit their argument.
  2. It is not against the law to vape in restaurants.
  3. The people I have spoken to about not washing their hands seem to think that the risk is only to themselves, and do not feel that it will not affect them. They do not seem to realise that other people who have the same attitude can infect them. This major problem seems to be overlooked on the briefings.
  4. I am certain it is to fill up Oceana after the Gulf cruises were cancelled, and a new itinerary at short notice was put together.
  5. I have never understood the 20kg limit in Southampton. If you are allowed 23kgs on a fly cruise where someone still has to put a 23kg case onto a boat. Needless to say, in protest, I have always filled my cases to 23kgs when departing from Southampton, and been ready to argue about it, but, alas, they have always been loaded without a problem.
  6. Another recommendation for Cosol Tours. We booked it in advance before we left.
  7. This post is about being accepted in the main dining room whilst wearing shorts. I am sure that if someone turns up in a jacket and tie with tailored shorts, long hose socks and shoes they will be allowed in.
  8. Having lived in Bermuda for a number of years I can tell you that you are mistaken.
  9. The on board credit is decided on four currencies. The US dollar, the euro, the pound, and the Australian Dollar. The exchange rate has nothing to do with it.
  10. I have taken a full size case through - the lock got caught on the car as we were unloading, and it had some expensive stuff in it. We cleared it with the staff who said that it had to fit through the x ray machine, which it did with ease.

    Do you Barter

    In ST Kitts I got a T shirt priced at $49 down to $25, and another from $25 to $9. This was a clothes/souvenir shop. There were a load of Americans who were watching in disbelief. One told the shopkeeper to call the police, because she thought I was a con man. Never tried it in a shop in Europe.
  12. We were on one a few years ago - Henry Kelly was on the cruise with loads of other classical type people. There were quite a few events during the cruise, but I only went to one quiz - only because it was in the bar I wanted to drink in.
  13. There is a group of CID officers at Southampton who have been sworn in as 'Reserve Constables' (same as UK Special Constables) in the Bermuda Police.
  14. Take your blinkers off. https://www.portofamsterdam.com/en/port-amsterdam/new-large-sea-lock
