I wonder if they will still charge $15 a bottle with this? (Or take the opportunity to increase that figure?)

This is true of most lifts - however I did notice that on CMV Magellan it did not always work (but then that was true of several things on that ship).

Maybe I'm being a bit dense here - but if it is credited to your on-board account and then you pay for it from your on-board account isn't that a bit pointless? If they credited your credit card I...

Don't mix grape and grain.

Avoid port - avoid port and brandy even more (spoken from bitter experience).

Pace yourself.

Practice makes perfect - after a time you get to know your limits - I...

I believe that the water supplies in the bars and kitchens have carbon filters on them. These are not present on your cabin water taps.

I 'think' I read on these boards (from Chengkp75 who is a ship's engineer) that the brown water is due to build up of the minerals added back to the water or something like that - it wasn't rust....

Heathrow to central London on the Piccadilly line does count towards the daily cap using Oyster (also the cheapest way to get to Central London except possibly National Express coach). Black cab is...

Er, we walk up the escalator on the left (like we drive on the left) and stand on the escalator on the right. Perfectly logical.;)

You can check your balance on the machines at the tube station. The yellow Oyster readers usually have a display which shows (very quickly and often hard to see) the balance and sometimes the charge.

I agree with why you should stick with the Oyster card (also I do not like having to get my wallet out to retrieve a payment card in a crowded tube station).

I'm not sure about the having to be on...

I 'think' that TfL charge the contactless trips as one charge per day so the forex fees issue is lessened for overseas users.

Personally, I have my pay-as-you-go Oyster so I do not do this...

Check out the coach shuttle from Victoria coach station to Tilbury (bookable through CMV). Victoria is easier to get to than Tilbury by train (and from Tilbury station to the cruise terminal involves...

I followed your Amazon thread closely and picked up some useful information from it - thank you for that. I am seriously looking forward to the Regent experience - for example, the sample menus I...

I'm guessing these Mensa quizzes are more puzzles/lateral thinking than general knowledge. It is 30 years since I passed their test so I might be a bit rusty! I'll give them a go as well as trying...

DW is from US and I am from UK so that helps in the trivia stakes.

I certainly hope that Regent is different to NCL (for the price it damn well better be!). We have just done 6 weeks on Cruise and...
