  1. Agreed Porky55, I have cruised a lot and have Never removed the Gratuities, the crew and staff deserve it.I have been advocating for along time that all cruiselines should build the Grats into the price so no-one can remove them. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  2. Question if you are a 4 star mariner, is it worth it to get a beverage package?as 4 star gets 50 % discount on coffees and wine packages. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  3. TA do not get 15% and do book direct with Celebrity etc..I know I am one Sent from my iPad using Forums
  4. I love the idea of the new dining theme , when we were on the Encore we ate outside a lot.So this will be a new dining experience.I love TK dining and the bar next door it is terrific.Looking forward to being on the Ovation soon! Seabourn does an amazing job. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  5. Our group of 6 pax recently cruised to NZ on the QM2, overall we were very disappointed with the cruise.Accommodation was reasonable in a Balcony, bathroom has a-shower curtain,Pillows were not good and limited choice.Food was very average and in the Britannia Restaurant it was very ordinary, the last night on board was the best meal,service in the restaurant was very pedestrian.Kings Court food was the ok for Brekky, terrible at lunch time ( same burgers and sandwiches everyday)and at night time the pasta and pizza ( thick bases yuck!)were the same .Service in the Kings court was hard to find. In the Corinthian room they serve food but it is the same choice Everyday!Beverages are expensive.Entertainment was reasonably good. The Queens room was nice and Afternoon tea was well done . Dress code was no problem for our group , but not always policed , Cunard should stay on top of the dress code. NZ ports were great and the weather was very warm. My cruising background is almost 600 days on many cruise lines, but Cunard for the basic passengers is not as good value ,as Holland America or Celebrity in my opinion .

  8. Can anyone assist with the following we are booked on the QM2 and there are 3 THEMED Formal nights, the question is what do you wear if it is Themed as I will be wearing a Tuxedo and my wife will be blinged. One Theme is Masked , so no problem there, the next one is Black and White I guess the Tux qualifies? And the next one is South Pacific, do wear a Hawaiian shirt under my suit ?? Any help is appreciated. Sent from my iPad using Forums

  10. I think they should have built a new ship and not buy another old one. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  11. Saguenay is the best port I have ever cruises into, you will love it Sent from my iPad using Forums
  12. I was on the Veendam for 48 days with 10 other friends in Feb 2017 , fantastic crew, good food , yes it is an older ship but well maintained.But we all had a great time and loved the Veendam, Personally I have done over 500 days on many various cruise lines , so hopefully I know what I am talking about. I have been on a Seabourn cruise where the ship was only 4 months and 15 staterooms flooded, it happens! Remember it is like living in a small village and repairs and maintenance goes on.

  13. I was the Veendam for 48 days Amazon this year in a group of Ten friends, all very experienced cruisers, we loved it god food, fantastic staff, and the best Captain ever!Yes she is older but very comfortable. Yes some issues with aircon, toilets, but no dramas and fixed quickly! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  14. Locals call it the White Elephant terminal , you will need a Taxi , there is a small cafe there, but nothing else in that location.Compared to overseas ports Sydney is terrible. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  15. Just returned from our 48 days cruise to Brazil and the Amazon with our group of 10 all retired people The Veendam was fine just issues with aircon but they do fix it or moved us. Public area like MDR was warm every night though Staff were fantastic food was very good and the Best Captain we have ever had on any cruise line Eric van der Welle Sent from my iPhone using Forums
