  1. I have downloaded some box sets have finished watching all of Downton Abbey (watched it 1st time round, but its been awhile) At the moment I am enjoying watching soldier, soldier again. Forgotten how good it was. Everything here in west midlands seems to be pretty quiet but who really knows everything.
  2. We are both in the sixty age group so not covered by age. The reason I said we may not be in a position to cruise next year is because 6 yrs ago I had breast cancer, all clear at the moment but whose to say I will be next year. Don't normally book this early (booked december) but there was extra onboard spend. I was originally tempted by the extra $600 but not so much now (although $1000 all in is still a bit tempting) but hubby really wants to cancel.
  3. We are in the same dilemma for our july cruise have to pay balance in 2 weeks time. I want to hang on but hubby is thinking of the £3,000plus we will be paying them in a fortnight. Have had the e-mail from cunard that we can wait until 2 days before and then change to another cruise next year. My dilemma is what if we are not in a position to cruise next year, we will have lost that money. Decisions, decisions don't want to panic but don't want to bail either.
  4. 2 yrs ago on qm2 had the soft drinks package looking at the terms and conditions it says both people have to have a drinks package. Is this new as last time it was just me and my husband just bought his beer when he wanted one.

    cabin no

    have booked cunard fare and chosen cabin for our iceland cruise |I was just on cruise personaliser and it doesn't show our cabin on there, is this normal. It states bed size and 2nd seating for dinner but not our cabin number. I would have thought it would be on there as we have the cunard fare. I am sure last time we were on cunard it stated our cabin no. Only time it didn't was when we had a guarantee
  6. yes a typo must have been having a senior moment🤣😁
  7. thank you everyone for your help have booked an oceanview on deck 1, hopefully we will see some whales through the window. Checked what time it gets dark in iceland, when we go it will be dark from about 11pm to 4.30pm so not so bad.
  8. We are looking at a cruise in july to iceland don't know whether to book a deluxe inside or an oceanview (unobstructed). How much light would be in the room with an outside as it will only be dark early hrs of the morning for a short while.

    have been looking to book a cruise on iona next summer. Being put off by the amount of passengers it can carry onboard. Been on QM2 3 times 150,000 tons 2669 passengers. Iona 180,000 tons 5220 passengers. Cannot get my head around it. Its not that much bigger for their to be double the amount of passengers. How are they going to create the space needed or is it just about how many passengers they can pack onboard. Other option is Arcadia but have read a few negative reviews so am unsure about that.
  10. I phoned to make a point. Also thought they could refund my credit card. Just not sure if I want to pay in a cheque for £1.75, but I may do so, it does need to stop happening.
  11. Just received my credit card bill for our cruise on oceana and lo and behold the day after our departure there was a charge for £1.75. Phoned up p and o merely to make a point. He said it was probably something out of the mini bar or we'd purchased something. Told him we did not use our card on the last day as we spent the morning in malta and had a tea with our lunch. I also checked the fridge before we left our stateroom as I had read about these charges, and there was 2 bottles of water still in there. (we never have anything out of the fridge). He said he would send me a cheque in the post! I said is it worth it for the amount but then said ok do that (whether I will cash it in!!) I also remarked that a lot of people are complaining about the extra charges I said if they charged extra on most cruises they were onto a nice little earner as not everyone can be bothered about such a small amount and wouldn't complain. Must admit he was very nice about it and said he hadn't had any phone calls for a while about the overcharges so thought it had been resolved. He also said as he was sending me a cheque it would be classed as a complaint about p and o. I told him I was only phoning really to make a point as it shouldn't happen.
  12. have phoned p and o mostly about plane seat no not showing on e-ticket and mentioned cruise personaliser he said they realised it had gone down and were working on it.
  13. Does anyone know if the cruise personaliser is down every time I try and get on today it is saying access denied you do not have permission to access this site. Hope its just a glitch as I havn't printed my e tickets yet and we go in just under 3 weeks.
  14. We purchased our seats for the aeroplane to malta quite a while seat numbers are showing up on cruise personaliser itinerary view but seat numbers are not on e-ticket. Is this normal or should I phone pando.
  15. on p and o website for our cruise it says 1 black and white night and 1 tropical. On cruise personaliser it says 2 black tie evenings. Is tropical classed as a black tie evening. Confused!!!
