  1. Yes, we are due to fly out next month to pick up Oceana in Malta. We have not been informed of any changes so far.
  2. Yes, tempted to pack my DB meter for our next cruise. Then again it’s probably unwise to attract attention from my fellow theatre goers when I start taking readings. Or worse still being escorted off the ship at the next port.
  3. That’s a good point, I run social dances and I find that I have to adjust my sound settings according to the amount of people in a room. I would have assumed that the sound desk would have a decibel meter to monitor sounds levels and adjust their output accordingly. Some venues will cut off the supply to your equipment if you exceed their permitted sound levels.
  4. I have another take on it. Have you forgotten in your distant youth seeing live rock bands, in those days music played loud was cool. Maybe they are aiming for a younger audience. Just a thought.
  5. As the others have said the price you see is the price you pay with no additional charges. The waiters that serve you in the bars and other on board venues are paid a commission on the amount of drinks they sell. You also get a loyalty club discount applied which varies depending on your tier. Thats one of the things we like about P&O. Enjoy.
  6. Panda cars were named after pandas because they were originally painted in large panels of black and white, or blue (usually light blue) and white. This may have been influenced by the black-and-white vehicle colour scheme favoured by North American police forces, which allowed the unambiguous recognition of patrol units as such from a significant distance. Please don’t be put off by some of the comments on here you will be more that welcome on board Oceana she’s a beautiful ship imo. I am sure you will have a great time. BTW, pando = p and o
  7. Agreed, I think that pretty well sums it up. For the benefit of the OP, their are normally 2 formal nights on a 7 day cruise and 4 on a 14 day cruise. You could choose to dine in the buffet on formal nights instead of the MDR or the select restaurants but it's a shame to miss out on those venues.
  8. Have a great and enjoyable cruise. We are also very much looking farward to our cruise next month on-board Oceana.
  9. Yes, thanks for pointing that out. It took us a while to realise that you could do that as it isn't widely known.😊
  10. Jean, very pleased to hear you enjoyed your cruise on-board Aurora. We also like Aurora and have spent many happy times in Carmens which has one of best dance floors in the fleet and that includes Britannia’s crystal room. Next month we are looking forward to our Greece Cruise on-board Oceana which is another ship we like but unfortunately they use the floor in the atrium for dancing. BTW, we also enjoyed the headliners production of Applause.
  11. Be aware that the daily Horizon activities vary depending on sea or port days. I think that's because some of the crew and entertainment team are tasked with other duties on port days.
  12. Thanks for the useful link. I just drilled down a little further in that link and found this link. https://boards.cruisecritic.co.uk/forum/2-ports-of-call/
  13. That's good to hear. Enjoy the rest of your cruise.😊
  14. I think the implications were that the problem has been fixed (8 am) hence my post 319 on the other thread asking for clarification. However, I totally agree that it must have been very inconvenient.
