  1. Though I was booked with them, due to Covid cancellations, I never got to use them, so technically I'm not a returning customer yet! Simon
  2. Thanks PT...that works for 5% off. Simon
  3. Thanks Elaine. We just booked Ventura for Xmas 2022 (35 nights). P&O want 350 to park, CPS is 331 and p4c is 166!, but its always nice to get a bit more off if you can!! Hope you and Lysle are keeping well. Simon
  4. Has anyone got a parking4cruises discount code I could 'borrow'? Thanks Simon
  5. Its usually the only day we have breakfast in the MDR, because of the 'scrum' in the buffet together with the hand luggage trip hazards, and also, we normally plan to get off fairly late, so not bothered about getting to the buffet first thing! As above, breakfast timings are normally about an hour or so earlier than usual...and they close earlier too. Simon
  6. Over the last few years, a lot of US passengers have opted to fly to Dublin, then change on to a flight to Southampton. It was cheaper than direct to London and also saved the 'faff' of going through Heathrow...much easier at Southampton. So, no personal experience, but I would definately look into flying in to Southampton. Its also only a 20 min cab ride from the port and hotels. Simon
  7. Not often I get a chance to say JB has boobed, so I'll say it now...JB has boobed! The bus from Bluewater would mean getting the little passenger ferry from Tilbury to Gravesend first, so don't even think about it! (I think JB was thinking of Thurrock Lakeside shopping centre). However, all the other info is fine, but as there are 4 of you, definately try and get a car or van (we call them minibuses over here) service of some sort. The train journey is OK and I think the cruise line normally runs a bus shuttle from Tilbury pier to the station, but if you do it that way I would definately use a cab (London black cab) from Fenchurch St to Waterloo. More money, but the Underground is a nightmare with luggage. Simon
  8. On a TA, don't forget the sun will be on the south side of the ship (port out, starboard home to use a well worn phrase!). I'm assuming you are round tripping, so decide if you want the sun on the way out or way back....oh, and definately have a balcony! Simon
  9. ...from the film of the same name. Simon
  10. I think thats the modern version that came out in the 90's when Thunderbirds was shown on BBC2. I used to have one from the 60's, but alas, no more! Of course, you are correct...it is the best one, with Thunderbird 6 close behind! (Lets see how much of a fan you are!) Simon
  11. Try ringing... it might be better. 02380 232 582 Simon
  12. If you have the Patient Access app on your smartphone, it should show up in 'medications' there too. At the bottom of the page there should be an 'export' button...hit this and it will say something like 'included in this export will be <your name , address etc>'. You could show this on boarding...maybe? Simon
  13. Yes. Nearly all public transport companies have reduced their services. National Express coaches have suspended all services until further notice for example. We'll just have to wait until things get back to normal!!! 🤞 Simon
  14. The train is on what is essentially a commuter line, but as the commuters should all still be at work (assuming Covid is over by then!!!), you should have no problems. There will be no large luggage racks, but you will have overhead racks for carry ons and should be able to find a '2 facing 2' seat bay where you can sit with your luggage. You will probably be on a Class 377 like this: '2 facing 2' seats are in the foreground. Simon
  15. Arcadia Nov/Dec '19 to see the Northern Lights (which we didn't) and to celebrate my 60th (which we did)! Simon
