  1. I notice that the mezze appeared both at lunch and dinner!
  2. We went here for a meal when we had an overnight in Helsinki last year https://www.myhelsinki.fi/en/eat-and-drink/restaurants/restaurant-kuu It was a good meal and an easy tram ride from where the shuttle bus dropped us off.
  3. We are also celebrating a 'big 0' anniversary on Aurora in April. It's good to know that we will be able to pre-book the Beach House (hubby doesn't like Sindhu).
  4. @Megabear2 I'm sorry that you were not well enough to travel home as planned and really hope that you are on the mend now. @Selbourne I used to be a nurse practitioner and would have been very happy to see someone who had a bad sore throat that hadn't improved after a week! It is possible that you have a secondary bacterial infection on top of the virus.
  5. Thank you. That, along with Selbourne's comment about the current choir on Aurora, is reassuring.
  6. @mrsgoggins I see that they are still running 'vocal workshops'. Do you happen to know whether these are more like the pre-covid passenger choir? I participated in the 'workshops' on Iona last year and found them a waste of time and was hoping there would have been a return to passenger choirs, at least on the smaller ships.
  7. Selbourne, I am really enjoying your reports and am so glad that you were able to see the whales.
  8. I had another email about this today. For our 19 day cruise an upgrade to deluxe balcony (we are currently in an inside), minimum bid £910. Standard balcony £490 Large seaview £430 Seaview £180 Larger inside £260. All prices per person. I don't know how these compare with prices when we booked.
  9. We have had an email from our TA confirming that the OBC has been added.
  10. I just glanced at the prices and it seemed to me that P+O were not offering any amazing deals. However, I could be wrong in this as I don't know what the full price upgrade might cost.
  11. @tring I think we must be on the same cruise as you - 19 nights on Aurora, departing 8th April? We had an upgrade email a few days ago but are not interested as we need an accessible cabin. I'm afraid that I don't remember prices - although I do remember being unimpressed!
  12. Thanks for the heads up. OH was able to complete the process this morning.
  13. We* are having problems with the app too, despite 'help'. Zac sent confirmation of the login details but we are still getting an error message. It's a good job we are not onboard until April! *We being OH who nominally owns the shares.
  14. @Selbourne My electric chair has a reversing 'beep' and I cannot control the volume on it. It also beeps when first switched on. I am careful that I don't disturb people with it which can mean sitting through a performance when I would prefer to leave, but that's just the way it is.
  15. Adding my thanks for an informative and thoroughly entertaining review.
  16. Thanks Selbourne, we are on her in April and it's good to know that I will be able to get in/out easily on my own. It gives both OH and I a bit more freedom!
  17. I agree that the balcony doors in the accessible cabins on Iona (and, I assume, Arvia) are so easy to use. Selbourne, are the doors to the accessible cabins on Aurora automatic opening? I haven't been on her for a long time and can't remember. It really makes a difference to whether I can get in and out easily on my own in my chair.
  18. We very much enjoyed our visit to the Tudor House, so that is something else to consider.
  19. @Lickylips I am very sorry to hear about your friend. I do hope that her surgery, recovery and repatriation go smoothly.
  20. Good luck with that one! If you should be lucky enough to find one, please pass the details on to me 😁
  21. I read, with interest, your thread about your first cruise. It's great to hear that your mobility has improved too!
  22. @carlanthony24 Would you mind terribly pulling up the times in Port for Aurora R406, April 2024, please? Or give a hint as to where it can be found.
  23. The ferry is by the market, not far from where the shuttle bus dropped us off. It was just one tram out to the restaurant but I'm afraid I don't remember which number it was. The tram stop, again, was near the shuttle drop-off.
  24. I'm not very mobile these days, so we mainly pottered one day. The other, we took the ferry over to Suomelina island. We had been there before but still found it worth a visit. In the evening we took a tram to https://ravintolakuu.fi/en/home/ for traditional Finnish food, which was very good (I'm afraid I ate Rudolf!).
  25. Great review, I'm glad you enjoyed yourself.
