    Welcome bottle of bubbly in the Grills?

    We were in Queens on QV just a couple of months ago and we got a bottle of real champagne and the Pol Acker which was really not all that bad!! Peter and Jenny

    Queens Grill Initial Thoughts

    We were on QV queens just a few weeks ago. Butler wasn't much use but the cabin was superb. The food was excellent. I don't think we had a bad meal or even a mediocre one. My good lady is diabetic and the guys went out of there way to find sugar free deserts for her. We still had the good weather and managed the courtyard for lunch. One recommendation we would have , as long as you are not vegetarian, is order the Duck L'orange. It will be cooked at your table and is totally fabulous!! Peter and Jenny

    You might have more luck on the P&O face book page.

    Sugar Free

    There is usually some sugar free ice cream available most nights and you can ask for the diabetic menu but according to my OH (Jenny) it is not very good so she manages as best she can, testing her blood regularly to find out what affects her and what does not. If you are not diabetic but just avoiding sugar for dietary reasons then it is not easy on P&O. It seems that sugar free is not popular these days whereas gluten free etc seem to be always offered.

    Irritating ast minute cruise changes

    I think the point to understand here is that these cruises are planned years in advance and so "Immigration Issues" cannot be taken into account that far in advance. I would not normally defend P&O but this seems to be a bit like the natural disasters that occur which mean a port cannot be visited. I do not know what these immigration issues are about (do you?) but they are what they are. You either accept that or opt out from the cruise. Sorry if that sounds a bit negative but that's how I see the situation. Peter

    Whilst I think the other restaurants will be okay to book once you are on board the Limelight Club, depending who is appearing, might book up early so it would be worth checking who is on. Peter and Jenny

    Ventura MDR breakfast menu

    Thanks Kalos that perfect for us. Peter and Jenny
  8. We are off on Ventura next January and wondered if anybody has a current copy of the MDR breakfast menu. We have been on Ventura quite a few times but not for a couple of years and have never eaten in the MDR for breakfast. We would really appreciate any help that you guys can give us. Peter and Jenny

    Haines also do one for the QE2 but to top off cruise ship manuals they do one for the Titanic!!

    Traingle Parking Southampton

    Thanks Jules that dispels the doubts we had, especially about leaving the keys!! Peter and Jenny
  11. We are off on Ventura at the start of January for 28 nights. Normally we park in the Grand Harbour Hotel for our cruise but this time the cruise is longer than their maximum stay so we are booked into Triangle Parking down by the Ocean Terminal. Originally our cruise was to leave from there but now it goes from Mayflower so it's a bit more of a trek and will be a bit to far for walking. Has anybody used Triangle Parking? If so how reliable is there included taxi service? I am thinking perhaps we should resort to cancelling and booking somewhere closer but I suspect it will be very expensive. Any advice would be appreciated. Peter and Jenny

    Suit bag

    Brochure? What brochure is that? We are boarding QV on Saturday after a few days in Rome and have not had a brochure from Cunard. I thought they had probably decided not to send them any more and you just have to print your luggage labels out your self!!

    Notes from Queen Victoria to the Mediterranean

    Sounds very nice but I was actually referring to diet (sugar free) tonic which I rather suspect this is not!! Thanks any way I might just give it a go by Jenny can't as she is diabetic, hence the need for diet tonic. Peter and Jenny

    Please help me with this P&O error!

    I take you don't believe any of this then? I must admit the four times deduction had me thinking as well!! Peter

    Notes from Queen Victoria to the Mediterranean

    Hi Hattie, Great reviews so far. We join QV on 29th of this month and are really looking forward to it. Just a quick question...can we get diet tonic water on the ship to go with out gin or is it as difficult as it seems to be every where else on the cruise ships! Peter and Jenny
