  1. Fair question but Grand class at the time were very large ships as built. The basic design was copied by P & O for Azura and Ventura.
  2. Where is the Suite boarding day lunch on Britannia.Thanks
  3. Accessing it from your smartphone is just so much more convenient though. Always have phone on me but always forget to pick up the daily paper
  4. Hamburg is fabulous place to visit. If you get a chance go to the model railway/miniature village in the Hafen City. Book online as wait can be 5-6 hours otherwise. Depending where you berth you may be close to city centre but otherwise can be a short taxi ride
  5. Having been on several MSC cruises recently their version of the whole 'smart ship' concept is superb. Long term it must be cheaper as saves huge amount on paper
  6. it may be she's in tomorrow thinking about it as its a two nighter back in Southampton on Friday just in time for me to board!
  7. The key is to ask for a bespoke creation lol. I hate tomato so generally I get a fresh cooked one. Holland America burgers are probably the best at see as they are all cooked totally fresh and to order
  8. About time they changed this system. The personaliser has felt very old fashioned for sometime now. Surely it time for a decent app that can also be used on board to make theatre bookings and restaurant bookings along with the spa. The daily program should also be available on various devices rather than the waste caused by printing. In this day and age you don't often see many people without a smartphone, iPad or kindle!
  9. So the refit is complete and passengers should be boarding today for the short mini cruise. Much has been said about the atrium and new art gallery but what changes if any were made to cabins and did they install scrubbers to for the soot?
  10. I've looked into using the e-sim built into my iPhone but I don't think Three support this functionality
  11. I understand the reasons why they are no longer berthing right in Amsterdam but this will spoil the New Years Eve cruises as part of the attraction was seeing the fireworks from being berthed right in the city centre. The area around Ijmuiden is largely docks. Surely it would be better to now do Hamburg as first choice?
  12. We always enjoy lunch in MDR apart from a hot sunny day when maybe we'll tuck into a burger by the pool. Generally avoid buffett for breakfast and lunch although we sometime visit in the evening for a themed dinner when it never seems quite so busy.
  13. What kind of sound system is in a full suite on Britannia? Wondering if I should take my portable bluetooth speaker or not? Thanks in advance
