  1. Hello Malcom, I am on Iona on 23rd May & am staying in an B4 aft suite 12738. I plan to take lots of photos of the suite & indeed the ship & will post a link to them on here once home, as I suspect with the number of photos I will take I will never be able to upload them on board. Joan
  2. Thank you everyone for your comments. I believe we too are leaving early afternoon & hence thought with the P&O organised tour we won't lose track of time & get left behind LOL! Maybe we will be brave & DIY it. Joan
  3. Hi Jean, It’s a walking tour in Bergen. Yes we can probably do it ourselves, but just wondered if the waitlist option is no longer available? Joan
  4. Hello, I have just logged onto onto my CP for my upcoming cruise on Iona in May & noticed that one of the excursions we wanted to book is sold out. There used to be an option to select a “wait list” but I cannot see this. Am I missing something obvious, or is it another thing you can do longer do online & will have to ring P&O? Any ideas??? Thank you.
  5. Ditto! Maybe it’s not as bad as we first thought!
  6. Hello, many thanks for taking the time to post your review. we are staying in B726 in Sept 2021. It’s good to hear positive reviews of the canopies.
  7. Thank you for posting this, as it’s nice to hear from someone who has actually stayed in one of the suites. Maybe it’s one less thing for me to worry about now!
  8. Doh! Of course it’s A deck, I can now see the canopy below .... it’s been a long day!
  9. Thank you, yes agree it makes me feel better. Do you know if it’s the A or B deck suite?
  10. Thank you for these; I see what you mean! Whilst I don't think I'm going to be overly happy about the canopy, I still love the suite itself so will stick with it. At the end of the day, I will just have to sunbathe up on deck; assuming of course we get the weather! Also, we don't go until Sept 2021 so a lot can change between now & then. We spent 19 nights on a aft suite on Azura where the balcony is totally covered, so at least this isn't quite a bad, but agree we should have known before we booked it. As like many others, we booked based on the fact we'd had the suite previously.
  11. Totally agree with you. We too used our balcony all day long & occasionally nipped upstairs just to use the pools & Jacuzzi's. It was our own private oasis, hence why we were prepared to pay the extra for the suite. Hubby isn't so much of a sun lover so he could nip in & out of the suite as & when the sun got too much, opposed to us sitting in different places on deck, me in the sun & him huddled undercover somewhere. The only thing I won't miss is the midday washing of the balconies, especially when the stewards first started doing it without warning!!
  12. Brilliant; thank you. I clearly misinterpreted your post, when you said you were very happy with them, as I thought you were currently on or had been on Britannia since the refit.
  13. Can you please let us know if the canopy impacts on the amount of sun you get on the balcony? Thanks
  14. Thank you, so I will, once I’ve been accepted by administrators!
  15. Do you know on which P&O FB as there’s more than one & I can’t find them?! Or are you referring to the 2 pictures already posted? Thank you.
  16. Hello, I too am booked in an aft suite in 2021 & received the same email this morning. I raised the issue with my TA after I saw a post refit photo of the aft & like you booked knowing the balcony is overlooked but loved it for the space & the sun we've previously experienced. This is the reply I received .... I have spoke to one of the P&O representatives and they have confirmed that they have put canopies that are in fact glass canopies over these suites which gives these cabins privacy. She has advised that this will not affect your space or the amount of sun as these are made of glass. Like you, I am hoping that some additional photos etc appear in due course. Joan
  17. Rain in the med in September....it better not LOL.
  18. Hello, I've just booked an aft corner suite on B deck for Sept 2021 as we've had it before & loved it. Looking at this photo I'm now not so sure we've done the right thing. I love the sun & am worried that we're not going to get any now. Never knew this was on the cards. Can anyone confirm that the canopy covers the B deck suites as well & what the impact is on the sun? Thank you. Joan
  19. Hello, I’ve just checked the Horizon from my recent cruise on Azura & it states the following:- Oasis Spa Gym Open 24 hours Resistance Machines, Weights & Treadmills 8am - 8pm They do advertise a free fab abs class at 7 am every morning. Hope this helps.
  20. Hello, Apologies for the delay, however, as promised, here’s some photos of The Glass House on Azura and the drinks menu, together with that from Brodie’s. Hope it helps. Joan
  21. Hello The Glass House always looks very nice & seems quite popular however, I’m not a drinker so not best placed to answer your question. That said I popped there this evening & have taken some photos of the venue & drinks menu, which I will upload to Flickr on Saturday when I get home & post the link as I’m struggling to upload on here. Hope this will help. joan

    Thank you to everyone who replied to this thread. just to let you know that we were unable to dock at Heraklion due to high winds. Apparently whilst we could have docked, there was concern that we might not be able to push off the berth & therefore become stranded. As such, it was arranged that Azura would make a maiden call to Souda Bay, which is on the other side of the island. Joan
  23. Hello, Currently sat in Venezia restaurant having breakfast & all the round table booths have been taped off. Two workmen have just come in & have dismantled to seats & have taken them away to be repaired. Joan
  24. Hello, yes he is & has been great. In fact has just delivered dinner so we can eat on our balcony
  25. I haven’t been in the Blue Bar so cannot comment on that. However, I can’t say I’ve noticed a smell around the atrium. That said there is a smell by the mid ship lifts on deck 15, but again it’s not Impacting in my cruise. Theres been various notes in the Horizon regarding the fact that they are cleaning the tanks, whatever they may be & there may be a residual smell. We too are in a (aft) suite & if I really wanted to find fault with it I could, but overall I’m having a great time.
