  1. when I was looking to go by coach I found Eavesway to be the same price as Cruise Connect. Our preference is to use Eavesway as the 2 times we have had a return coach to Manchester after transatlantic the coaches were not as good, no wifi. We have booked Eavesway pick up in Bolton.
  2. I do not know what more could have been done Captain kept everybody updated, yes toilets were an issue but was told to use your cabin. Lunch was either a barbecue or a cold buffett in the Peninsular. Staff used evac chairs to help passengers around the ship.
  3. Sailing from Southampton did not fill in forms in November and December
  4. Was not an issue for us last week we were on Riviera deck at the back
  5. Just back off Ventura and my son attended the art class on each sea day cost £21 for his kit, they did a morning and afternoon session in Metropolis. The instructor was very good and has written some books, my son really enjoyed it
  6. Christmas Eve is a normal day usually in port, they hold midnight mass shared between passengers and crew. Christmas Day is at sea and has a full program and is formal you even get a visit from Santa. If you are on freedom then they request you to pick 1st or 2nd sitting for Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve makes it easier for the waiters to finish and enjoy. We are on Oriana from 21st December and do it most years
  7. We have our shares with Equiniti and do not have to do anything as they are regocnised by P&O. Just speak to Bolsover who apply the OBC. We get the dividend paid into our bank every quarter and a confirmation email works well for us. just returned off Ventura a 13 night cruise and got the maximum £150 when we thought we would only get £60 so pleasing surprise
  8. We are booked on this cruise and have waited till retirement to do it. Booked early and got a good price. We did the last leg from Dubai a few years back.
  9. We did the cable car just walked up the road from the drop off point no real queues, would by the tickets from the cable car station rather than the shops on the way up as was €2 cheaper. We found it very busy at the top as the ship tours seemed to visit early was they had gone not a problem
  10. Just back of Oriana June 9th no mention about this, though some of the crew were mentioning contract changes to other ships. Very sad to see her go as a great ship for dancing. Will have our last cruise on her Xmas
