    Limelight Club

    Thats what I thought.We had booked to see Gareth Gates before our cruise hoping we would be allocated good seats but although they were closer to the front than the previous time we had booked they were right by a pillar!

    Usually I wouldn t bother to book in advance but when we saw Gareth Gates earlier this year he was sold out every night.I agree about some of the tables being in an awkward place.Is it possible to ask for a particular table? We have been twice and have always been allocated a table

    Atmosphere on board

    One reason we usually have insides on Aurora and Arcadia but a Balcony on Britannia!

    will the price drop

    P and O are standardizing Meet ups now because they have become so popular so the date, time and Meeting place will be in the Horizon paper.Alternatively(or as well I think because P and O will advertise one) it is possible to arrange an informal meet up on the roll call.

    No more cruises before Christmas but not long to wait until January! Perhaps see you at the Meet up?

    We are also on the April cruise on Aurora and booked as soon as prices were released.Often the cruises that have the biggest increase are those with 'different' or interesting itineraries e.g I think the April cruise is the only one(apart from one in October)where you can visit Malta without flying.Traditionally cruises in November and December (apart from Christmas) drop in price and there are a lot of cruises to the Caribbean so those cruises tend to drop in price too.However, nowadays P and O tend to drop prices a lot earlier than they used to so there are fewer last minute bargains

    It is hard to tell but one way I try and gauge if there are a lot of unsold cabins is to do a dummy run on the grade of cabin you are interested in as well as perhaps the grade either side.If you can t select a particular cabin because it says 'Guarantee only' it usually means there are not many cabins of that grade left.However I think sometimes P and O will state 'Guarantee only on the lowest grade e'g HF or PF so they can slot people in at a later date so I usually look at the other cabins.If most grades say guarantee only the ship is likely to be nearly full but if most grades show a choice of 6 or 7 cabins, there are usuallyquite a few left.I think it also depends how important it is to go on a particular ship on a particular date.If your friend definately wants t o sail on Britannia on a certain date he may be best booking it fairly soon though possibly waiting until Black Friday-23 November.(P and O don t usually have special offers but some TA's do
  8. Thank you for your replies.Useful to know 🙂
  9. Do you know the cost of the Red Hook ferry? Is it possible(or quicker) to get to the World Trade Centre Memorial by underground?

    Roaring 20's night on QM2?

    Black/white night seems fairly easy to dress for and may be able to get something for the 20s night but what proportion of ladies wear a red or gold dress at the Cunarder ball?

    New Autumn deals

    I have heard that if you book a cruise with a TA for £1 deposit you may have to pay the full deposit if you cancel(I think this is because it is the TA's promotion not P and O's)However when once we booked onboard with a £50 deposit and subsequently cancelled we only lost the £50The terms should state clearly how much deposit you lose

    drinks package on Azura

    I don't mind if they roll out the drinks package even though we won't purchase it, but I am disappointed if it means they are getting rid of the 20 soft drinks for £35 card or putting up the prices of drinks in general.I hope I will be able to purchase the soft drinks card for my cruise this sunday

    Diet coke

    They do sell bottles of diet coke( the pepsi is on draught)but I don't think they sell caffeine free.I tend to bring some caffeine free bottles/cans onboard to drink in the cabin but drink the usual diet coke in the bars.
