  1. Great to hear that Ryszard sorted things out for your friend. I hope he improves quickly after the procedure and is able to get home safely.
  2. Please post again without mentioning your travel agent - not allowed on CC.
  3. Just to check - are you saying there are service problems only in relation to the UBP? We’ve never had a beverage package and have never had any problems with drinks service either - it’s always been excellent.
  4. If you’re concerned about others using information about your bid to ‘out bid’ you, then it would be better to do as uktog says and not post information about your bid until you know the outcome. I guess eventually we will see if/how useful this information is, but it will take a while until we can see the outcomes from bids made.
  5. Yes, I agree. I only published it to check that people could see it and think it will be useful. I know whose bids I have entered, so I can tie them up once people post success or not. I presume you can read the spreadsheet. Could you read both or just the second one?
  6. It sounds like it might include a Secret Itinerary tour of the Doges palace I did a few years ago through the palace. It was great, it took you behind the scenes at the palace including the cell where Casanova was held, the torture chamber etc. The tour itself lasted a couple of hours once we were at the palace. Obviously if it’s 5 hours it includes more than that, but of course you have to get there and back from the dock either by water or walking, which would add quite a lot of time.
  7. Have you seen the sticky topic titled Upgrade Bid Experiences. I am trying to compile a chart of people’s experience with bidding for upgrades. It would be great if you would be prepared to post on there the following - date of bid, date of cruise, length of cruise, LCV level, cabin booked, cabin bid for, minimum bid available, amount of bid, bid strength (weak etc) and then later come back & say whether your bid was successful.
  8. There are also 2 hooks on the inside of the bathroom door. I take 2 hanging organisers, a wide one & a narrow one and hang them both inside the bathroom door. I use them for sun cream, hair products, creams & potions. It means they are very easy to find.
  9. I have now added cruise length https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pEoojQ5-EPmD4cI3gw1dVcYfYTXfZePdDXxU09l0H3M I think LCV level needs to stay so hopefully eventually we may be able to see whether/to what extent, LCV level affects the outcome of a bid
  10. If you really want to see a lot of animals in Africa, then I’d recommend a land-tour Safari of at least 5 days. We’ve done 9 in Kenya and Tanzania, including a couple in temporary camps. No, we weren’t in poor class accommodation. The tents were beautifully furnished - they were the size of rooms, with an attached bathroom. Excellent food too. On one of them, in the Serengeti, a mother cheetah & 6 cubs, about 4/5 weeks old, came close to us, then the babies crept under out Jeep for shade. On another in the Selou in Tanzania, we sat in the Jeep for half an hour watching a family of wild dogs (very rare to see them).
  11. Here’s today’s Azamara advertising email. I received it in the UK. It looks as if it was sent by Azamara UK from the address at the very bottom.

  12. Another tip from uktog in another topic - take magnetic clips to hold your paperwork. The walls are magnetised, so you can use them to keep all your paperwork tidy. I take magnetic hooks too - they’re strong enough to put sun-hats on.
  13. I’ll put it in. I agree, I always have 2 magnetic hooks and two magnetic clips.
  14. We did that Costa Rica Cruise last year. It was great, but I have to say we didn’t see many animals, except in Sanctuaries. If you want to see lots of animals in the wild do a safari in Africa.
