    That is what I was hoping. I have just hunted out the email and it says RSVP to watch our private livestream from the comfort of home and you’ll see even more than you could have at the quayside. So I then looked live stream up and found this link with info (ignore the kids bit). https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk I'm sure they will have it all sorted on something anyone can watch.

    Have you got information on how to watch it yet. I'm presuming it will be a link, but I haven't got anything yet.

    I saw somewhere today that Marella have some staycation 's from Tynemouth. If we get sorted with postponing our DLP holiday again, it might be a good time to give them a try.

    I might have been, but there isn't any coaches to get us to Southampton.

    Thanks, he has the card with him so I will have to wait until he gets home to get the number.

    I'm looking to book a cruise and dh has a blue light card. I understand that we can get some obc through this. Can I book the holiday in my name if the blc is in dh's name? What details do they ask for to prove you have the card? Would I need him to be at home when making the booking.
  8. I take my own tea bags as I don't like strong tea. I also take them to hotels in Yorkshire. On our last cruise I tried English breakfast and it was quite nice. With regards to the milk, while on Britannia and the Costa on the lido deck had milk in the same bottles as the supermarket. Not something that's supplied, but I usually take some chocolate bars. I'm not a lover of desserts and they don't usually have any I like apart from the jam roly poly which is only available one day and ice cream which you mostly have to buy. I know you can get it for free in the mdr, but I find that
  9. The trouble for us it that only one of us might use the drinks package, but both of us would have to buy it. Mixers When buying drinks with mixers, what is the best way to do so. We have bought a drink with say lemonade/coke etc and they bring a can. Though only a small can there might only be a small amount from it used in the drink. Did someone say before that you can ask for the mixer from the pump. Is it cheaper to do so or more expensive than buying the can.

    I got an invite and don't currently have any cruises booked. Maybe their target is people who aren't frequent cruisers. I'm wondering how you will watch it on the tv, where you don't have emails set up. Presumably open the email on phone and then hopefully cast to tv.
  11. For newbies to P&O. It will be interesting to see if Brexit and the pandemic have changed the prices much.
  12. There was a thread a couple of years ago showing price lists, I will bump it up. Though I would think the prices have changed since then.

    I'm looking for a cruise next year and I'm not very good with plans. Someone on here mentioned that Iona is similar to Esmeralda, so I thought I would have a look. Your explanation might help a bit when looking at the deck plans. I've got to admit the video of Esmeralda didn't endear me to Iona. I have no chance of going into a balcony cabin let alone a suite, but I have to say that on Emeralds I didn't think much of the layout of those cabins. I was surprised at how closed in the balcony is on what I think is the conservatory cabins. I also thought the suites had an odd layout. Maybe they m

    I have just been watching a tour of Esmeralda and noted a few things. Whether they are good or bad is each person's opinion. First of all, she looked absolutely beautiful. There seemed to be just as many seats in the shade as in the sun, if not more. What I saw of what I'm guessing is the retreat, was a lot shaded seats and double beds. Those mushrooms on the deck that someone mentioned before, might be shade for seating (actually I think something like that was mentioned at the beginning of her build). What looked to be the conservatory mini suites, had a bedroom, conservatory and then
