  1. Great,! off to bed now, early start in the morning. See you soon. Clive
  2. Wide variety,! to include, Neil sedaka, some Tom jones, Elvis, Dean martin, etc, etc,. but probably song of choice would be " Don't " by Elvis.
  3. Yes its something we try to do each year, since we both retired, although we had our Caribbean xmas cruise on the Oriana cancelled a couple of years ago, because of engine problems, so I can empathise with others in the same boat, so to speak. Look out for me and Phil on the karaoke.!! Clive
  4. All ready for xmas and new year on Ventura then an overnight in S/Hampton before joining Aurora. Think I will wait till we get to St Maarten, for "duty free "
  5. Glad you had a great cruise, sorry its so cold back here. Does anyone know what the price of Benson &Hedges gold are, in the onboard duty free shop ??
  6. Well Holland America is also owned by Carnival, so surely compensation should be the same for any complete cruise cancellation. Unless there are other extenuating circumstances that we are not aware of, ( don't ask me what ) then I can see a legitimate right of complaint, for those concerned. Remember " if you don't ask you don't get " ?? The fact that the passengers were in the main American, might have some bearing on it, they are so litigious .!!
  7. Does anyone know the price of Benson & hedges gold in the duty free shop at the moment.
  8. Wow,!! free drinks on offer, see you in the bar. Does anyone know the price of Benson & hedges gold in the duty free shop at the moment.
  9. Hi, Andy Don't believe everything you read on Facebook etc, when anything like this occurs, the "rumungerers " always come out of the woodwork. Having spoken to P&O today they confirmed that it is anticipated that ongoing repairs "should " sort the problem with the engine room distribution panel and the ship will be available for next Tuesdays cruise. What does the song say, " accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative " Clive
  10. I really feel for the little ones, hopefully you can find something for them.
  11. Hi, we are due to join the Ventura on Tuesday 17th Dec for a back to back xmas and new year cruise. Just crossing fingers that the problems will be sorted by then.!! So sorry for those that have had the previous cruise cancelled. Apparently the people who are stuck in Tenerife will be getting a 50% refund.!!, not bad for a extra four days holiday.

    Many thanks for all your replies, I hope our hotel has a large storage room as there will be nine cases in total. We will also have to negotiate a rate with a local taxi firm, to and from the hotel.!!
