We like meeting new people at dinner. What we don't like is dining with the same people night after night, which is why we don't do traditional dining. And if we fancy being on our own one night,...

I don't think he was making a point about spelling at all. In the UK, if you say 'I don't know about such and such, but...' you are often just calling attention to an additional point that needs to...

Note that London (Southampton) is very misleading. Southampton is 75 miles from London. You aren't very likely to find a cruise which actually goes to London, they are few and far between.

Norwegian woollen goods are usually of high quality and very hard-wearing. They make nice gifts but they're often very heavy which can be a problem if you're restricted for weight flying home.

Marazul is right. 14 carat gold is unusual in Europe, including UK. Cheap and cheerful jewellery is 9 carat, more expensive stuff is 18 carat, with 22 carat common for wedding rings.

You're quite right. I hadn't noticed that sticky, I read further up the page above the list of Italy ports,where it has Notices and just refers to recommendations.

No reason it should be. It's starting a thread to recommend a tour company that's not allowed. You can start a thread to complain about one.

I really don't see why you should have a problem. Many of the major cruise lines ban smoking in cabins, balconies and most public areas and you will find vegetarian options in the main dining rooms...

You will find that travellers cheques are rarely used by Europeans these days. You may have difficulty in finding places to change them. I would advise you just to use ATMs and credit cards.
