  1. One little gem we visited on Adonia, was Monemvasia....in the Pelaponese area of Greece.....we had never heard of it before but it was such a wonderful surprise, a lovely little walled town set in the side of a cliff, only visible from the sea until you walk through the wall and this little town appears before you.
  2. Our last, but not final, cruise was the last cruise Oceana nearly did!!! Cut short when Spain closed her ports....however we did have a lovely 10 day cruise .....extremely well looked after by P and O, as usual we met some lovely people, had good food, good entertainment, good weather and, as far as we know, no sickness on board!! We arrived home on 18 March and have been in lockdown ever since!! We do have more cruises booked so will carry on cruising as soon as we can.....
  3. I have lung cancer and have good reasonably priced insurance with World First....I got their recommendation via Macmillan website.
  4. It won't be 'freezing' PeteM3!!! Forecast 11 degs with a moderate breeze for the day we leave Southampton so not too bad at all !! Think positive !!
  5. This will be our fourth Xmas/new year cruise in the Canaries and it has always been warm and sunny.....so much so I swam in the sea at La Gomera and Gran Canaria two years ago! I will be taking summer clothes for a week and warmer clothes for a week....even Lisbon is mid teens at the moment ! Layers are probably a good idea and a cagoule or light raincoat also ! I also have a micro fleece for days at sea and a gilet all useful to have with you. You will need sun protection! Forecast temperatures for December in Tenerife range from 16 to 19 on BBC Weather.....Gran Canaria 22 the week before Christmas! So go prepared and don't forget your swim things !!!!!!!
  6. We were also on that sailing and had a different experience.....didn't you have to go and queue for your luggage labels? We couldnt go anywhere until that was done...about half an hour....then the wait for actual check in...another 20 mins or so..then the worse bit was security.....just one door open with one lady letting two passengers in at a time! (there are 3 doors usually all open with other cruise lines) and just two X-ray machines working......with P and O usually all manned and working! This led to huge queues at security with nowhere to sit, we were there for at least half an hour probably longer....we arrived at the port at 1215 and didn't make it to the buffet until after 2.00 pm. It could all have beeh so much better organised starting with issuing luggage labels/cabin numbers by post or email before the cruise.
  7. hi Kruzseeka…..yes we hope of course that we may see the lights but I'm sure we will enjoy the cruise anyway....thanks for the info. Funnily enough I was thinking of you this morning as I read you are on Oceana in March....so are we on E006N ….so we may yet meet again! we also booked the Christmas and New Year on her so really pushing the boat out so to speak! Best wishes to you both
  8. Hello RR..... We won't be on her next year (as far as we know!) But we have booked two weeks to Norway at the end of this month!! We thought we'd give her a try as she's going from Southampton! We thoroughly enjoyed Discovery 2 last year! Hope you and Mrs RR are keeping well X
  9. Propriano is a pleasant small town and there is a nice beach very close to the ships berth. We wandered town in the morning then sat on the beach in the afternoon!! Haven't been to other ports but I'm sure someone else will help you!
  10. I sent a messenger message via Facebook and received the calendar within two days...they reply very promptly via that method !
  11. We have in the past cancelled our cruise , losing the deposit, and rebooking at the cheaper price and still been several hundred pounds better off!! You do need to do the sums carefully though!!
