  1. We visited Israel on Aurora in 2013, it was part of the world cruise. I guess it's worth looking at cruises out of Malta and see if any of those call there.
  2. It's only two or three nights on a cruise. They have other shows and guest appearances too.
  3. I was on a Grand Voyage when Britannia was named bringing the fleet up to 8 at the time. One of the entertainment team told me that P&O only wanted 7 ships and one would be for the chop. He was right. Goodbye Adonia!
  4. Cruise cancelled a couple of months ago. Cheque received today, followed by email saying it had been sent but may be delayed due to Royal Mail's volume of business! Now, what do I do with a cheque, again?
  5. 7 nights in February. Galapagos on Silver Galapagos. Cost almost as much as the world cruise on Aurora in 2013! (Did include flights though).
  6. I remember the P&O forum. I had everyone signed up for my world cruise in 2013, so I could keep in touch for four months. They closed it down a few weeks before we sailed 😫 I think the main prolem was the general boards. They got quite nasty at times.
  7. I quite enjoyed Haugesund. I still have my certificate from Britannia's maiden call. Having said that, it's noy way up on my list of 'must revisits'!!
  8. I've been told off but only once. Can't say what for or I'll get another kick in the whatsits!
  9. I saw Queen in Earl's Court in 1977! I also saw Jimi Hendrix in Coventry, he ws second billing to Engelbert Humperdinck!! Saw Essex twice, once in Godspell and again in Evita. I'm really a Motown boy, though. Seen so many of them over the years, and Kylie of course (it's the gay gene kicking in!!!!).
  10. Most of the kids in my grammar school were either from council estates (like me) or farmers children from the surrounding villages. As for school dinners, most of ours were fine and certainly worth the bob that it cost!
  11. Already booked on Arcadia January 22. Mind you it was booked before anyone had ever heard of COVID-19!
  12. I should be on her right now 😒 Never mind. I'm booked on the same cruise next year. Fingers crossed 🤞
  13. Hi Gill, I certainly do miss cruising, I should have been off on Iona next week. At least I did manage to a cruise in last February, to the Galapagos, so the withdrawal symptoms aren't as bad as they could be! Hope all's well with you, stay safe.
  14. Mine's paying for the en-suite to be completely remodelled!
  15. Lost ours. We had to cancel and no hint of a refund.
  16. Exactly what I thought when I read it earler today.
  17. I've had one of these cabins on both Oasis and Symphony and I'd take another like a shot. Only a bit of noise during the day and none in the evening.
  18. I'm on the 55 nighter too! I went on the 2013 World Cruise and the 2015 South America and Pacific cruise. I'd suggest you decide what it is you want to do in the ports, lots of research Then try different excursion companies as well as P&O. Viator, crusingexcursions.com etc. In Brazil I used toursbylocals.com (they're worldwide), not cheap but a brilliant day. Some ports you just want to wander around. In Papua New Guinea, we piled off the ship and negotiated with a local minibus guy. Don't forget, if you have a lot of OBC, you can always use it to book onboard
  19. Moved both my September and November Iona cruises to their equivalents in 2021. Fingers crossed you can go in November.
  20. Sorry to hear of your news. I've had two friends die this year, both suddenly and neither from COVID. One of them was one of my oldest friends, I'd known her for over 50 years. Stay strong.
  21. I hope not. I'm due to do her Amazon cruise in 2022. Assuming the Brazilians haven't cleared the jungle by then and Bolsonaro hasn't killed off most of his population!
