    Solo traveller – Caribbean

    Clodia - is the purpose of the coffee morning so that solo's can meet up and go ashore together? I completely understand your comment re safety. I am a little nervous as this will be my first time doing a solo cruise and my first time to the Caribbean. My intention is to book all the excursions with P & O. Any advice you can give to a virgin solo traveller would be greatly appreciated
  9. I am booked on a caribbean cruise this Dec on Britannia and as this will be my first solo cruise I am not sure what to expect. Do P & O still arrange events for solo travellers. I would really appreciate any advice that solo travellers can offer. Many thanks in advance

    MSC Seaview delivery delayed slightly

    I have also been affected by the cancellation, I was due to sail from Marseille on the 9th of June for a 7 day cruise. Obviously I was extremely disappointed when I received the e-mail yesterday morning. However, sh*t happens and there is nothing I can do to change the situation. I wasn’t going to post re the cancelation, however the above post has prompted me to. I known every persons experience is different, what I post here is my personal experience. I can not speak highly enough about the way MSC has handled this situation with me. They have done everything in their power to try and assist me. I have not had any problems getting through to them va the general contact number, they have called me back a number of times and they have corresponded with me via e-mail. My refund is in hand and I have already booked a replacement cruise. I really feel for the staff as they are having to deal with thousands of calls following the cancellation.

    MSC Preziosa UK based summer 2019

    JPMoore - thanks for the heads up!! I see they have cruises listed for Apr, May, Aug & sept. Do you think that is the final listing. We were looking to travel in july 2019 so I am a little disappointed. I incorrectly assumed they would be sailing ex southampton for summer 2019. Oh well roll on June for our trip on Seaview

    MSC Preziosa UK based summer 2019

    Hi mark Thanks for the information I did call today, however didnt manage to speak to Stuart Chalmers. I spoke to a very nice/helpful lady who confirmed they are still uploading the preziosa cruises in to their website, hence the delay. She asked me for my contact details and said she will call me directly when they go on sale. I suspect they will go on sale very soon:)
