  1. This all worryingly seems to be getting a bit normal lately - really having second thoughts about booking with P & O now which is a shame as we have not even used them yet (sailing with them in August on Aurora). We will see how it all goes last few cruises have been with Princess and no problems there but just fancied a change.
  2. There apparently still seems to be some sunbed rage issues going on. Does anyone know is it mainly on the likes of Britannia, Ventura etc. or does this happen on Aurora also 😐. Will be on Aurora in August and was not anticipating this with it being adult-only now, or perhaps this is worse?
  3. Yes used this company a couple of years ago and went to Rome - 'Rome on your own' and also Pisa. Both were very reasonably priced I think around £16-£19. You do literally just get dropped off/picked up no guide with you but it was great if you just needed the transport there and back. Would not hesitate to use again. Hope this helps!!
  4. Thanks for doing this - it is so much more interesting when the post is live from onboard. Enjoy your cruise!!!
  5. This website is brilliant - forget P & O and use this, every time for every port http://www.cruisecal.com/portal/ItineraryPrint/tabid/2919/Default.aspx?sailID=CarnUK/R914
  6. I use Chrome on laptop also and no cannot access times just early afternoon, late afternoon etc, etc. I can see the Browse Itinerary button but it always moves out of the way so cannot press it.
  7. Yes that does seem like good value - do you know do you get something similar to a coffee card and just get it punched each purchase?
  8. Sorry forgot to mention we also did Pisa with tuscanyBUS again great and cheap also about 16 euros I think
  9. When we were on a Crown Princess cruise a couple of years ago we did 'Rome on your own' through tuscanyBUS - they were very good and it only costs approx. 23 euros each. It depends if you want the re-assurance of booking with P & O to get back to the port on time because it is quite a distance away 11/2 hours - but we took the chance and booked tuscanyBUS as it was leaving Rome at 4.00pm so knew we had plenty of time to get back. As it just so happens some passengers had booked the train to Rome through Princess and it never left the station because it broke down and they wasted the day not getting to Rome which must have been a great shame!!!!!
  10. Thanks a lot Groovechick for all the information this looks really good
  11. Thanks a lot DamianG this looks a very useful guide I shall take a good look at it
  12. Hi are you calling at Vigo tomorrow and if so what do you plan to do there? Only asking because we are on Aurora in August and stopping there but not too sure about the port and what to do as yet. Thanks
  13. Is anyone having the same problem as me? It appears the Community Link/Posts is not showing up on the left hand side on P & O Facebook, don't know why??????
