  1. I hope the remainder of the cruise goes according to plan.
  2. One of the passengers has posted on another site that Captain has announced there is a technical issue with the generator. SofA returning to UK to get it checked out.
  3. When we boarded SofA for the Christmas cruise there were no books in the library. However, halfway through the cruise they appeared! The dining rooms also only provided salt and pepper in sachets for the first half of the cruise, then salt and pepper pots appeared. We wondered if these were measures taken against the spread of Norovirus. If so, it worked, because we only heard of a couple of cases on board.
  4. I understand from another social media site that the ship is staying in Portsmouth until Monday morning to avoid an incoming storm. Shuttles have been provided to visit local attractions.
  5. I’m pleased that you have had some success Windsurfboy. I hope others who were on the same cruise will persevere with their complaints.
  6. Have you had a response from ABTA?

    I phoned Saga about another matter today, and also asked when Summer 2025 itineraries would be sent to people who had pre-registered. I was informed that an ebrochure will be emailed around the end of February.
  8. Thanks for your reply Charles2108. I hope you enjoy your future cruises.
  9. Charles2108 I have just found your post in the Roll Call section of this website, and was very concerned to read it, as we have a cruise booked on one of the Sky vessels. Was your cruise on MV Elysium? I haven’t been on that vessel, and wondered whether the Cruise Director is employed by NC, or by the ship? I would hate to think that he might be on our cruise later this year!

    I agree entirely nosapphire and FatBoy20. Passengers are invited to pre-register on board, but are obviously going to ask when they are likely to be able to book. Saga World Rep replies that they haven’t been told, and don’t know when they will be told. Very frustrating all round, and Saga HQ need to address this.

    We’re currently on board Adventure for the Canarian Christmas cruise. I asked the Saga World rep. when people who had pre-registered would receive the Summer 2025 itineraries. She didn’t know. Not very helpful, sorry!
  12. We’re interested in trying Viking (while we are still prepared to fly). We like the decor, and the retractable roof over the pool is a bonus. How does Viking compare in terms of quality of food, service, lecturers and entertainment? I hope you don’t mind me asking the question on this thread- it is going off topic somewhat!
  13. The Incident to which you refer occurred on the Canary Island Quintet Cruise on SoD, which returned to Portsmouth on 7th November. Our friends were on this cruise, where over 100 people were injured, and, sadly a passenger passed away two days after docking. The MAIB has launched an investigation. There are some interesting comments about what may have gone wrong on this thread.
  14. I don’t think people are going on about safety delays. They just want to be given the full facts in a timely fashion.
  15. We have always found that shirts come back from the laundry beautifully washed and ironed.
  16. I’m very impressed that you have already unpacked! We are on Canarian Christmas cruise, and are really looking forward to it. We’re being picked up at 10 am, so should arrive at the port around lunchtime.

    That’s even later than last year!
  18. Sounds like you are enjoying yourselves. We’re on board for the Christmas cruise. Not keen on Elvis, but I hope the Agatha Christie playlets will be performed then!
  19. The ships have identical deck plans, but we prefer the decor and the speciality restaurants on Spirit of Discovery. We have cruises booked on both ships, however, so it’s not a deal breaker for us. Whatever you decide, I’m sure you will have an enjoyable cruise.

    January/February sounds a bit late, bearing in mind that the Winter cruises were released two months earlier than last year. We’re on SofA for the Canaries Christmas cruise, so if I haven’t heard anything by then, I will ask on board.

    We didn’t book any winter cruises. The Adriatic cruise looked interesting, but we felt that the departure in February was too early for this itinerary. We have pre-registered for April to December 2025, and look forward to hearing from Saga soon!
  22. The BBC are asking people who were on board to email with their experiences. It will be interesting to see what happens next.
  23. We had an email from friends on SOD. They were told that the ship couldn’t get into Porto or Lisbon due to the strike. As the Portuguese maritime pilots’ strike dates are 6-8 November, this seems a bit odd.
