  1. Well, i guess so, as we definitely docked. Walked past all the Croatian coastal cruisers (mmm, looked good) and ferries between Split and Italian ports. 10-15 minutes pleasant walk till you take a right turn into the old city. It’s as nice a port as can be for DIY Incidentally, I think I fibbed earlier - not a free walking tour but a paid one via TripAdvisor. Maybe £15 each for two hours and as much history, sights and wonderful a cappella choir as you would wish
  2. Yes. The Ventura/Oceana news is interesting. Guess it shows the Med fly cruises are more popular now than when they started? I would love to get back on Oceana ex Southampton
  3. We docked in Split. its lovely you could do worse than book for a free walking tour - it’s an interesting place
  4. You don’t say your son’s age but do refer to him as a child, so have a look at the MDR items always available for children on this link (Scroll to the very end) https://ask.pocruises.com/help/PO/life-on-board/example_menu As others have said, the crew are always lovely towards children, and to people travelling with disabilities
  5. Here’s a good article https://trakke.co.uk/blogs/handbook/travel-packing-cubes-the-ultimate-guide I guess everyone finds their favourite way to use them ... or send them to a charity shop if they are an unrequested, unwanted gift
  6. Is Epicurean available for breakfast on disembarkation day? If so, what time does it close?
  7. I’ll put in another recommendation for the Aeropress. Great coffee If you take one make sure you take something to allow you to dispose of the grounds, which pack down to a solid-ish disc. Not the sort of thing to flush and not nice to fling, unwrapped, into the waste bin, where it would disintegrate messily
  8. Have a look through these sample menus No duplication (other than “always available”) https://carnivaluk.metafaq.com/resources/carnivaluk/life-on-board/PO_MDR_DinnerMenus.pdf
  9. Google says Gulf + Trump ban on US owned cruise ships visiting Cuba + sixth consecutive quarter disappointing results. As long as you’re not looking to sell your shares the drop doesn’t really affect, does it? OBC not affected afaik
  10. You’re right that the three C’s, Cadiz, Cannes and Cartagena, are easy to self-explore. All good imo. I think Cannes may have been a tender port for us. Gibraltar seems to be a bit of a “Marmite” port. Generally only a half-day - which suits me. (You can tell which side I’m on!). However, there are things to see and do, other than shop. The cable car to the top of the rock and the horrible monkeys is probably an iconic activity. Easy to do yourself - just walk and you can’t miss it. The Trafalgar graveyard is an interesting and quiet spot, away from the madding crowd. Bilbao is absolutely fantastic though ... I’m not really helping, am I? Enjoy your cruise, wherever
  11. Welcome Sindhu do lunchtime specials sometimes, on sea days. Maybe you will be able to enjoy a daytime meal?
  12. Have a look at this link to the P&O help pages (I wish these were more obvious on the new, “improved”, website) https://ask.pocruises.com/help/PO/life-on-board/example_menu The Ocean Grill is very nice
  13. Better late than never ... here’s the info from the P&O website. Scroll to the bottom to find the children’s choices. As I said - pretty much anything https://ask.pocruises.com/help/PO/life-on-board/example_menu
  14. HaHa I haven’t been on Britannia but can confirm rollers on other ships
