  1. Had cruise last year from Rome. Flew into Verona and spent a couple of days with hire car to Florence then Sienna. Bologna would also be a good choice as its not far from Florence
  2. OP hear - thanks for continuing comments - all useful. Regards what experience I'm looking for, the following would be priority: 1 - Itinary - Both similar but note Brian1's comments with the Stockholm/Gothenburg difference. I too would prefer the P&O option of Strasbourg (I believe it is in the centre not Nyansham port so a great sail in/out) so tick for P&O. But Carnival Legend remains in Warenmunde til v.late so giving opportunity for Berlin trip whereas P&O leaves early evening - tick Carnival. 2- Food/Service - want to feel like I'm getting a f
  3. Thanks Purdey16 - would consider that sailing but its just outside school hol so no good for us. Some great comments from others, appreciate them all in helping me to choose. Ardennais - see what you mean about Legend being garish. Have watched a couple of you tube videos on Legend and it looks like it was designed by a pimp with unusually bad taste. Have been to Graceland and the ship makes that place looks like a discreet model of interior decor. What gives with all those urns/vases all over the place ?
  4. Thanks both for comments so far. Agree with you JimmyTheSaint, though I am English, when going on hol I prefer to get away from reminders of home and have enjoyed chats with Americans, Australians and others on Princess cruises and was wondering if P&O would just be too English/British. So far the comments on the Carnival board are more positive for Legend than the comments I am getting for the same post on the P&O board for Ventura.
  5. Hi Thanks for the response. Criteria is Baltic as that was were we had planned this year, school holidays due to job and out of UK due to any potential issues next year with Covid. Pop all that into a cruise site and those are the only two available.
  6. Also posting in Carnival forum Looking at Summer 2021 Balitic cruise from UK and choice is either: Carnival Legend 12 day out of Dover P&O Ventura 14 day out of Southampton Both visit same ports except Legend does Gothenburg but Ventura does Stockholm, all other ports the same just P&O have 2 extra sea days By the time gratuities are added to Carnival prices the absolute and price per night is more expensive on Carnival but not by much. Have previously cruised with Princess and v.happy with the experience so looking for thoughts on whi

  8. Looking at 2021 cruise to Baltic on Legend. Ship docks in Warnemunde from 6:30am - 11pm giving enough time to get to Berlin and back. Does anyone know if the ship arranges excursions to Berlin? Was going to go with Princess this summer now cancelled and they had a train excursion dropping you off in Berlin for 5 hours by yourself which is what I would be looking for from Carnival. Aware there are third party tours e.g. Alla but given the distances would prefer knowing the ship isn't leaving without me.
  9. Doh - my fault. Thanks both. Not sure how I missed that. Checking the 2021 on Ventura still quite a high deposit required - £210 per person on inside, £322 balcony so still high compared to Princess but not the jaw dropping experience I thought. Thanks again
  10. Looking at first time on P&O for Baltic in Aug 2021 on Azura. Just getting price on the P&O website and was surprised for both saver and select fares that 100% payment is required now. Is this just P&O trying to rake in as much cash as possible to cover the cancellation payments ? Given all the issues just now and for the forseeable future there's no way I'm paying 100% upfront so seems like a shot in the foot by P&O to me. They may be ATOL covered but I've no intention of waiting weeks/months for a potential refund. Princess who I've normally sailed on (also Carnival own
  11. If someone in your house gets corona virus or in a relatives house would there be a lingering doubt in your mind so you wouldn't go back to the house ? Any sane person would obviously would say 'No' and the same logic should follow for this ship, any other ship, your place of work, local supermarket, car dealership, sports venue or any of the 1000's of other places where someone will get the virus and people will return to. Why should the Diamond Princess be any different ?
  12. The bus stop is right at the port. In the google link below you can see the bus stop sign and behind it the jetty where the ship docks (assuming you are not tendering). https://www.google.com/maps/@61.8440247,6.8122779,3a,37.5y,243.13h,89.62t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1shN_wBp0Yyq6myaeg0bK-Ag!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
  13. one of these each: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ansell-YY23T-00132-06-Microgard-Coverall-XX-Large/dp/B017MG4VBI/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Chemical+Protection+Suit&qid=1583428303&s=diy&sr=1-1
  14. Roger that. 12 more needed.
  15. I noticed from people posting the MDR menus that they have suggested red and white wines, or as the menu says "wine pairings". These don't seem to have any price on them - anyone know if the $12 limit on the alcohol package covers these ?
