  1. I have received the offer, I think it will just be the album, they could possibly put in a photo of one of the ships? I won't be taking it up as our photo's are kept digitally or in frames, however for anyone who keeps their photo's in an album it is a good offer.
  2. I tend to go to the shows, much better than watching people playing with lift buttons. After a big lunch run up and down the stairs pressing lift buttons and watch the look on peoples faces when the doors open and there is nobody there, great exercise.
  3. I have been having the flu jab for over 40 years, advised by my doctor as I have asthma. I have it as soon as it becomes available, never had a reaction.
  4. Service charges are included in the fare since earlier this year. Where did you acquire this information please?
  5. We had a death on our cruise from the UK to Canada, a code alpha was called early morning and police officers came aboard and accompanied the body off on a tender. We didn't hear any other details as to the nature of the death.
  6. Maybe they should have a moaning old gits club, or maybe not; it wouldn't be big enough.😉
  7. Makes sense, plus people could move places each night.
  8. This is from the P&O website. The only reason I looked was that on Tuesday night the P&O rep on Planet cruises TV show said you could spend OBC on anything and I knew that was not true. On board credit If you have any on board credit this will be used against your on board spend during your holiday, in most of the ships’ outlets. On board credit cannot be used for the following: Medical charges (including services, prescriptions and supplies) Cash back Purchase of foreign currency International visas Charity donations On-board gaming (including the casino) As full or part payment against a future cruise All on board credits are non-refundable at any time. If you have purchased, or have received a gift credit then please be advised that the same limits as above apply. All gift credits are non-refundable on board.
  9. The last time we went with P&O to St Petersburg we took a tour to the Hermitage museum with time on your own. This gave us the chance to mooch around and have a drink in local bars, we also walked around the church of the blood and visited a small market close by.
  10. The system has worked well on our previous cruises, saves wasting paper.
  11. I believe diamond is the new black, if you use the search facility there is quite a bit of info around the site.
  12. We have cruise the Baltics with P&O and Princess, we found most things were similar, both great cruises, we were on Crown princess 2 years ago to Baltic, price was the deciding factor, although drinks are more expensive on Princess, made worse by weak sterling. There were more non brits on Princess, the entertainment was more geared up for brits as you would expect from Southampton.
  13. Wine and beer is very reasonably priced on CMV compared to many other lines. drinks packages are also available from CMV.
  14. We were informed on our return from the Caribbean in March that we would be docking in Southampton the evening before our scheduled arrival to miss a storm, we were told that we would not be able to get off until the original scheduled time, within minutes there were people queuing at reception demanding they be allowed to disembark in the evening, the captain explained that the ship could not be customs cleared and the luggage would not be taken off until the following morning. Probably the same people that moan that they can't embark early at the start of the cruise.
  15. Call me an old cynic but P&O have sent out surveys for years, some lengthy some less so, usually under the heading "We value your opinion" This is so that they can say they were reacting to customer opinions when unpopular decisions are made.
