  1. We are going on med cruise in June on Arcadia which is already famous for its cabin cough! Hope this virus controlled by then. Is anyone thinking of cancelling any cruises?
  2. On the subject of travel insurance if anyone is having problems getting cover for over 80s try Natwest or Nationwide. They provide good annual cover it you either have or open an account with them.
  3. you will have a supply of tea bags coffee sachets milk and biscuits in your cabin. These are replenished daily by your cabin steward.
  4. Thankyou. I have heard something about Natwest doing a similar thing.
  5. My husband will be 80 in March at our present will no longer cover us. I have heard that a well known high street will insure with no upper age limits of you open an account with them. Has any cruises heard of and if so enlighten me please.
  6. Thanks for your input. My husband used a mobility scooter which is quite cumbersome. He has no problem on elaboration of disembarking. The problem is these days the ports are miles away from the town centre and there are only some ports that supply big enough transport from ship to town. We do realise this when we book our cruises and are more than happy to stay on board but I would like to know what people do with any unspent one apart from speciality restaurants perhaps.
  7. Hello all. If I have a large amount of On board spend I buy Christmas and birthday gifts. We do not drink alcohol and are unable spend on trips as husband disabled so cannot manage the gang plank. I would like to know if other passengers do similar?
  8. We have booked our first fly cruise on Britannia. Has anyone stayed in D701? We would like any comments please.
  9. My husband will be 80 in March and I will be 75 in April. Until now we have had an annual travel insurance which covered us both. He has medication controlled type 2 diabetes arthritis and controlled hypertension and I have controlled hypertension and on statins. We were wondering if anyone has advice about renewing our travel insurance for regular cruises?
  10. Just returned from Christmas and New Year cruise on Oceana. Fabulous! In spite of a few hiccups Captain Derek Gray made sure everyone was informed at all times. Brilliant food great fellow passengers and great weather. What more could you ask for?
  11. According to Southampton still expecting 6am arrival. Has anybody else seen or heard anything as we are due on the Christmas and New year cruise.
  12. My husband used a mobility scooter so had to rely on lifts. I agree that at least one lift should be allocated for passengers with wheelchairs buggies etc.P and O if you read the posts referring to this matter please take note.!
  13. Looking forward to christmas and New year on Oceana. Has anyone looked at long range weather forecast especially the Atlantic crossing to Gran Canaria!
  14. Can anyone give us some advice regarding what clothes to pack for Christmas and New Year cruise to Canaries.
  15. Have going on our first Christmas and New year cruise on Oceana. Does anybody take any Christmas goodies with them? We do have Xmas jumpers!.
