  1. Really happy as I managed to book one over my birthday and not only were they silly prices, we got £150 each OBC.
  2. A sad loss to the UK cruise industry. The perfect cruise ship IMO - lots of rooms for different activities to run concurrently, lovely open teak decks, good in bad weather, ideal size - not too big and not too small.
  3. Boring then. Let us just hope Aurora gets something better.
  4. I feel the problem with Liverpool is that, unless you are heading north to Iceland, it is in the wrong place. It would add a day's sailing to the Med or Canaries and possibly more for the Baltic.
  5. I shared with a friend. I took one large suitcase, one medium suitcase and two large holdalls plus hand luggage (medications nearly one on their own!). My friend took similar. The cabin steward took any bags we didn't want away but I kept one hardsided case that opened in half under the bed as a "drawer" and in which I packed purchases made along the way. P&O will give you the info you need on personaliser to obtain visas. You can use their approved company but I did my own without difficulty.
  6. It is Dowe Egberts coffee - both caffinated and decaffinated but I prefer to take my own sachets of Kenco Flat White. However, the milk is UHT in sachets but you could buy milk in port and keep in the cabin fridge but it isn't very cold.
  7. Please do NOT ask for travel agent recommendations as all posts will be removed as contravening CC guidelines. Thanks.
  8. Clearly Britannia is now Ok and all are enjoying their cruise and OBC 🙂 I am turning off further comments to this post.
  9. Dubrovnik will have a shuttle bus to outside the Pile Gate. Easy to wander at will then. At Split you tender ashore to the old part of town - again easy to DIY from there. Sorry - not been to Hvar. I love that part of the world. Have a great time.
  10. As we still haven't left the EU yet, don't forget to pack your EHIC card and that it is current. When this topic arose previously, some people seemed to think it only applied if your were staying i the country and not on a cruise, however, this article says differently. https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/news/2019/06/-i-broke-my-ankle-on-holiday---but-moneysavingexpert-s-ehic-remi/?utm_source=MSE_Newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_term=09-Jul-19-50570822-10616&utm_campaign=nt-hiya&utm_content=7
  11. It will be predominantly British people on board and a lot more formal than you may be used to - we had 26 black tie evenings in 2017. Drinks and excursions will be cheaper and there are no gratuities to pay. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
  12. She was built with world cruising in mind - hence greater stores capacity etc.
  13. But with considerably less tonnage so deeper in proportion to the others.
  14. There is a whole forum on CC devoted to ports of call - check them out here https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/149-other-mediterranean-ports/
  15. There is a whole forum here relating to travel insurance. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/499-cruisetravel-insurance/
