My vessel finder still has her in Cadiz... Perhaps they took one look & sent her back. I am looking to book for June if the price is right so I hope she doesn't go anywhere 'till then. :confused:

AIS still has her in Cadiz. If she is in South China Sea, she will have to get moving as the crew start arriving at the beginning of March!!

Hi Cappers,

 

Yes - we have done it a couple of times, last time was in 2012 with RR and the lovely Mrs RR - one of our favourite itineraries. Mrs MChap loves the shopping in Gibralter (and it is a great place) as they have the shops there like M & S, Morrisons etc. that we haven't got here in Mallorca.

Tangiers is not a very nice place but the other stops are fine.

It will be great to meet up with you and celebrate your birthday, although I can't say that myself and the famous RR could be referred to as 'fairly normal' :)

Just an update regarding those sale rumours. The website that has the ship listed has been recently updated:

 

http://www.marine-consultant.com/p508.htm

 

Now has IE as available for Immediate delivery (February 2014).

 

How come every time I am looking to book the IE they always trying to sell it? In fact the first time I booked the IE for Nov' 2010 it was the first year that they mothballed her for the winter... They sent me a letter saying I had been transferred to the Destiny (no major change cruise compo as they termed it an upgrade) but carried on selling tickets for the IE cruise for a couple of months... So wondering if she were to be sold, when would the customers be told.

Anyhow on my two visits to her so far she was full of mostly return bookers, so they must be doing something right.

Now if they could transfer the crew, entertainments team & especially the chef & buffets to the Dream, they would only need to double the size of the casino for the perfect product.

Stevio don't talk about FO as golden oldies won't have anywhere to go :D

 

Yeah I don't want to put the mockers on the Fred line

Just thinking, I have seen some oldies on the IE... I suppose you have to be very, very, very old to go on Fred. :p

 

 

Anyone else having trouble posting on here today? .... I think I have just got it to work on Firefox ..... No it keeps logging me out..... But lets me come back to edit this... Funny aint it.
