  1. Hi we go tomorrow and have arranged to do this ourselves there is loads of information about DIY trips on the facebook page
  2. we were on this cruise and had a fabulous time yes there where issues with tenders but you have to be organised if you get up early and get the tender tickets we did not have any problems getting off the ship at any time In Newcastle we organised a private Hunter Valley wine tour via cruise critic roll call Lisa from hunter valley wine tours was amazing friends we met said Newcastle was lovely with very good beaches Yorkies Knob we went to the lagoon and Cairns on the first day, the second day we had arranged another private tour and did sky rail and Kuranda another fabulous trip In Airlie Beach we we had pre booked a boat charter and went to the Whitsunday islands Darwin was very hot we went to Crocodilus park and walked around the town Komodo Island was lovely again we had booked a tour through the roll call saw the dragons and then had a snorkeling trip to the pink beach yes there were children begging but if you said no they went away I do agree Samarang was a horrible port dirty and smelly got a taxi for 20 USD return with another couple not much to see Bali we had been to before so I had pre booked a taxi and a group of us got a taxi to the beach had nusa dua and had a very relaxing day my advice is to not book ships tours but with a lot of research and organisation do it yourself we had an inside cabin and I would estimate with everything the trip cost at the most £6,000 for a months all inclusive holiday we thought it was great value
  3. this is what it quotes on our invoice To change accommodation, flight time, airport, duration and/or to travel earlier than planned* £50 per person 90% of original cost 100% of original cost To travel later than planned Cancellation charges apply - see section 12 Cancellation charges apply - see section 12 Cancellation charges apply - see section 12 I think I will give them a ring sounds as if it will be expensive to change we will just have to put up with all the children lol
  4. does anyone know the logic behind Thompsons policy in that if you change your cruise date to later you have to cancel the whole thing and loose your deposit, but if the dates are earlier you dont have to cancel I have just ealised that part of our cruise next year is the half term week:(
  5. :confused: we have just recieved today through the post a large packet sent airmail from miami a booklet containing a ' Certificate of Reimagination' for our recent spice route cruise on the Quest which although very nice will go in a cupboard and never see the light of day again the funnyist thing about it on the certificate it says to Alan and Weale Weale my name is Anne our surname is Weale
