  1. Is it first come first served? I'm guessing they disembark passengers and then move to anchor for the next one in the queue.
  2. I wonder how they are going to arrange all that. After disembarking their passengers where will they all go? Surely not enough for the three Queens and the seven P&O ships. In relation to Arcadia, I see that she's heading to Durban and Cape Town before heading back to Southampton.
  3. I've realised that I don't spend nearly enough on OBC to make any use of the benefit. Oh well... Well done to anyone who has been able to make the most of this temporary drop in prices.
  4. Sorry to ask probably obvious questions, but whats the best route to purchase shares? I've had a bit of a look on the t'interwebs and it seems a lot of sites come attached with monthly fees etc. - which is a going to quickly eat into a small investment.
  5. That's great, thanks Eddie. I'll have to give it some consideration.
  6. Thanks for the replies. You've all got me thinking now, those OBC figures aren better then I had though. I guess getting that cancels out any OBC you wold normally get (as a non-shareholder)?
  7. I've probably asked this before (so apologies for repeating myself), but what benefits do you get? I've seen OBC mentioned, is that awatrded on a percentage scale related to the number of shares or just a flat fee ? And... that question.. what's the entry level for this? Are we talking 1,00 shares or does it have to be more?
  8. I believe this is the second one of these I've had. Never clicked on the link though.
  9. Wow she looks great. And to think we were all commenting on how much there was left to do only a few months ago..
  10. Channel 5 has a show about the MSC Bellissima next Friday (14/2 20:00) , so who knows, maybe Iona will feature in a future episode?
  11. Jonty Stephens and Ian Ashpitel as Eric and Ernie Shaun Williamson
  12. That is a great idea. So long as they don't want to run the entire Greek national anthem.... (longest in the world with 158 stanzas) Joking aside, it would be a nice touch - especially if you like experiencing a lot of the local culture. If they wanted to make things balanced (emphasis on the if), play our anthem before/after it - as they do for international sporting events. I have to agree there too. Sailaways are optional, and even if you attend you don't have to participate. I'm not overly keen on those times they encourage you to "dance along" (thats on most sailaways, not just GBS) One thing that I find cringy - and it would also apply to playing the host nations anthem, is when they use some really tinny syntheic version of the anthem (same for Land of My Fathers/ Flower of Scotland/Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory). Surely its not that hard to find a decent recording of the songs? ..... On a separate thought - just how much of the music can they hear dockside anyway? I remember being aside the Azura in Gibraltar as we both sailed out - you bearly hear anything. You could see their passengers dancing - so they were doing the same sort of sailaway, but what was playing - anyones guess.
  13. Interesting points there. I have to admit, I'm cringing at the thought of 5,200 let alone 6k. As for delivery dates, I wonder how much of a buffer is built into the date? Granted they could not forsee the delays with the Mardi Gras, but with other ships - do they have, say, a week or two contingency? Its a fine line, no point having a ship ready to go and waiting for its maiden voyage. Must be heckuva a stressful time for those who plan all the promotional side of things. Let alone those people who work at the booking agencies/call centres that probably get a right earful when things have to be re-arranged. As you said Britboys, here's hoping Iona will buck that trend.
  14. Thanks for the update jaydee! I'd completetly forgotten about the works over at the Ocean Terminal.
  15. I guess they can re-purpose the sailaway to the "Best of British Music". As a nation, we have produced some amazing songwriters and performers. Trouble is, even with the hallowed names of the British music greats, you're not going to please everyone.
