  1. I am using Chrome on a Macbook Pro and can only see early afternoon, late afternoon etc. No actual times. Same on Ipad.
  2. Can anyone tell me the prices for Epicurean and LImelight on Britannia. I can't seem to find the prices on the new infuriating website and not showing on our CP yet. Thanks
  3. Thanks, I knew there was a reason why we have never been ! I guess that is for 2 weeks, our next one is 22 days so would be even more.
  4. Never tried it on any of the ships - how much is it ?
  5. Yes, it is for the Sun. After leaving Maderia you will be sailing more or less West for 5 days and the Port side cabins seem to get the Sun all day. The Starboard cabins are mostly shaded. This is how it has been for us in the past The POSH Port out Starboard home thing was for the opposite reason because they wanted the cooler cabins when sailing to India - A popular folk etymology holds that the term is an acronym for "port out, starboard home", describing the cooler, north-facing cabins taken by the most aristocratic or rich passengers travelling from Britain to India and back.
  6. I agree and Port side of the ship.
  7. I would say straight out that we prefer Celebrity to P&O but it comes at a price now with exchange rates etc, especially for fly cruises. On board spend seems to be a lot more on Celebrity but I think that Celebrity are just a notch above P&O for most aspects of the cruise, especially service. So we now cruise P&O (our next 4 cruises are with P&O) as it enables us to cruise twice a year and we are more than happy with the quality that we get. I would also say that Britannia is our favourite ship in the fleet, mainly because it has a lot more options in the evenings for dining and entertainment. We have sailed twice before on Britannia and have enjoyed both, the food and entertainment have both been good. The only negative with P&O seems to come if you get a problem, as their Customer Service is not the best, but that apart I am sure you will enjoy Britannia. Incidentally, we are going on the 22 day Caribbean TA on Britannia his year.

  9. Yes, that was generous, I remember it. I don't know if P&O were part of carnival then ?, not sure they would be so generous now. I hope none of us have to find out.
  10. No, you are right, we did not get a calendar this year which we usually do (not bothered, didn't chase it) , but we got Moments in April. It is all a bit hit and miss. They made a big fuss last year getting everyone to get their details and contact preferences correct and then only send out some of the items, but as you say no problem getting email after email selling cruises.
  11. It is online here, at least it was a month or so ago https://issuu.com/pandocruises/docs/moments_9-compressed?utm_medium=email&utm_source=poem19aprexplorepast&utm_campaign=moments_newsletter&utm_term=%24amf_field_bw_urn%24&utm_content=linkmomentsonline
  12. Are you on a charter or scheduled flight - we were allocated a BA scheduled flight once with P&O to to Barbados and had to pick up the luggage from the terminal.
  13. Great review, glad you enjoyed the cruise and P&O. Loved reading about your alcohol adventures, sounds like the sort of activities I look for.
