  1. Great review, it's on our, bucket list. Thanks for posting
  2. Our first cruise was QM2, I researched the dress code before. Bought a few nice dresses, some from ebay. Got my 17 year son a really nice evening suit from a charity shop. He looked amazing 😊. Bought my 14 year old his first suit from M@S. We had a ball
  3. Thanks for a great review, interesting to see what happens on the presidents cruise. Laura always looks very elegant. Bet Bella is happy you are home, our dog goes nuts when we get back from a trip away
  4. Thank you for a great review Norris, I really enjoyed it. We are on our first Celebrity ship in June, Silhouette to Norway too so found it especially interesting. Though hope we have better weather. We spoke to someone on our last cruise who said his June Norway cruise had thick fog but I guess that's the luck of the draw. Will definately search out your next review though we have no plans at moment to try Princess cruises. Thanks again for taking the time to do the review. London is only 35 miles from us and our son lives in Streatham but we don't go up to Central London nearly enough
  5. Pretty certain Americans don't need a visa for Dubai. From Europe its a fairly easy flight to get some winter sun and the prices are very cheap at moment
  6. NO, 'they' may enjoying the perk of a nice lounge, thinking Independence or Jewel. A few pre dinner snacks, and a couple of drinks before going into dinner. Plus sometimes enjoyable conversation with fellow passengers. We usually have two or at most three drinks, and then occasionally pick up a couple of bottles of water for our free 3 drinks. As someone else posted, earned one point at a time, one or two cruises a year. Its one of the reasons why we look at RC first, though we are also price and itinerary driven and obviously enjoy their product
  7. Is she still in Europe? Think that's the week of UK half term holidays so may be a lot of families on board
  8. We were just down the coast from you today, in Bournemouth, the weather was wonderful. Though we live in the south of England and drive to that coast regularly I had never heard of the Butser Ancient Farm. It sounds very interesting and will definately visit one day. Thanks Sue
  9. Each to their own, but if parents are taking children out of school because it is cheaper in term time then I can only say from personal experience, my favourite ever family holidays when the kids were small were cheap-ish caravan holidays on the continent during the school holidays. The kids loved them and they played happily with children from all over Europe. Loads of freedom and the beaches in France are great.
  10. Wow, you had a busy year. Looking forward to your review. Jewel is my favourite ship
  11. Indy has a very nice diamond lounge with an outside area overlooking the sports Court. Have not cruised on Navigator as Diamond so do not know what their lounge is like. Indy also had very good shows on our recent Med cruise
  12. I also liked the hams and cheeses along with different breads, toast and preserves etc. Fresh coffee and juice was nice too. Though if on a ship with solarium bistro that would be just as nice and wider choice. Congratulations on reaching diamond!
  13. I work for an airline and our flights to and from Japan have been cancelled tomorrow and next day
  14. My hubby's favourite. The only place in UK you can get it is the Canadian pub in Covent Garden in London
  15. On Indi DL it is very nice continental, lovely breads, pastries, selection of cut and whole fruits, smoked salmon, toast and preserves, ham and cheeses. Plus the freshly made coffee and juices. There is also the outside area which is lovely to sit out. For lunch they also have a selection of sandwiches etc
