  1. We were in Sihanoukville 2 weeks ago, it is a mess, all of the roads have been dug up due to the extensive construction of Chinese hotels/casinos. Tuk Tuks are available at the port for city tours, but get out of the city if you can.
  2. You wouldn't, they are confined to their cabin.
  3. Depending on your plans it is possible to get by with US$, it may make a small purchase more expensive, but less so than getting currency and changing it back. I don't think there is a port where you could use it. Have plenty of small notes though. We were recommended Measles plus the usual vaccinations.
  4. A part is being made, hence the delay, you are probably correct that it will come into Thailand.
  5. Keith, I think the Captain said the transformer would be fixed in about 5 weeks, a week ago. The late flight wasn't so bad, I slept a few hours and the drove straight home from Gatwick yesterday morning. It's their attitude that the changes aren't a big deal that annoys me. Quite simply we wouldn't have booked the itinerary we had.
  6. Arrived home from Langkawi yesterday after a 14 hour+ flight including a refuel in Bulgaria. What I don't understand about the scheduled late arrival of the boat into Langkawi is that we had a 6 hour delay leaving Vietnam on the 30th due to a medical emergency, but were able to make up that time and even dock a little early. There is much more to say but I am still gathering my thoughts.
  7. Every policy is different but it would be a poor one that didn't extend until your return home, that is whole point of the insurance. I would not expect any policy to withdraw cover when you are delayed in such circumstances.
  8. What was the booking level for the whole season?
  9. 100% agree, plenty to go round if they if people used them then left them free.

  11. This thread reminds of the man who cancelled his family holiday to Turkey about 10 years ago after a terrorist incident there, they went to Cornwall instead and end up being rescued from a hotel roof after severe flooding. We are on Oceana in December, nowhere is 100% safe.
  12. We book via a local TUI shop to avoid dealing direct, a £30 fee for the whole booking is well worth the convenience. They check you in for flights and print your documents as well. We have done some 20 P&O cruises but our last 2 have been Marella, Discovery and Explorer. They are differences as has been pointed out, but overall I would say comparable.
  13. Spot on Dave. Can I add, people on Marella don't seem to moan as much as P&Oers. Also given our recent experience on Explorer I would say better dining with more options.
