Exciting announcement

I thought it was a Silversea ship but didn't know which one.  They seemed to go to great lengths to hide everything about the ship name and line. It is very strange that they didn't want the publicity.  I wonder if there was some sort of disagreement between the line and the production company. 

It was the Silver Shadow, but before her recent refit.

I'd love to go on Silversea Andy - maybe if I get a big payout from Ernie one day 😁.  I have been lucky enough to have dinner and drinks on one that was berthed beside Tower Bridge in London a few years ago.

I am a very recent convert to Silversea; 2 weeks on the Whisper last month. Time and my next 5 cruises will tell if SS has completely spoiled me for P and O, but I suspect it has. I have booked another Silversea for late 2021. After that it's a decision: 2 or 3 times a year with P and O or once with Silversea. With the advent of larger and larger P and O ships I think I know what the answer is. I would also say that Silversea is keen to recruit P and O customers who feel they have gone too downmarket lately.

If they are that keen to recruit P&O customers maybe they'd like to sell me one half price with no single supplement 😉😁

I will stick to 3 P&O per year for now, but that could always change in time.

I'm off on my first Silversea cruise next month.  Sailing solo and paying full price, but only(!) 25% single supplement.  Having said that, the price for 9 days is about half of what I paid for my P&O world cruise in 2013.  Mind you, it is the Gapapagos (top of my bucket list) and I'm flying business.  Mind you, I'm still looking forward to Iona in September 😋

Sounds fantastic.

Yes, they do quite a lot of low single supplement deals - but I guess they can afford to with the base price.  Have a wonderful cruise!

As we both seem to be favoured by Andy, we could share a taxi to take us to the ship. All Andy needs to do now is win the lottery. No problem...😏

That cretin was in First Class when I was cabin crew.  In 11 hours, he didn't acknowledge or even look at us when we asked him what he wanted to drink or eat.  His Manager answered for him. 

Nowadays his manager HAS to answer for him because Barry can't move his face and lips due to the amount of plastic and Botox!

So, the second 'teaser' ad has gone out.  As I thought, it does of course relate to Iona, so won't affect me.  It looks like it will be a collaboration in a similar way to the one Saga has with Jools Holland.

What was the name of the pianist who was on Celebrity and then was poached by Princess? Maybe he'll now be scrambled by P&O!!!

I know the one you mean but can't recall his name.  Think they will be looking for someone a bit more 'trendy' or contemporary for Iona though.

I wonder if it will be someone like Jamie Cullen who would probably appeal to all ages?

I've heard on the QT it's gonna be Sooty and Sweep in concert. I'm soooo excited I've almost wet myself!!!

Maybe P&O are bringing Noddy and Mr Bump back. 

We did a med cruise about 11 years ago, big promotion to encourage families with pre-schoolers.  Resulted in chaos at times when Noddy appeared in the buffet and the toddlers all screaming towards Noddy weaving around older passengers with mobility aids. 😂   

Happy memories but was so badly planned 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♂️

The chef from Essex...? 

Andy 

 

Now I do know the chef from Essex ……….. I will have to google this other one. Perhaps its my age or something !

I remember Barrie (before he worked for Tussauds ..)

 

OK, just had a quick listen - not my thing at all. Too jazzy and I hate jazz.

I thought I didn't like Jazz until we started cruising.. 

Nothing better than sitting in Metropolis listening to a jazz band play smoke on the water on trumpets...
