    Unlimited drink package -Aurea experience

    I have just tried to upgrade the Aurea drinks package to deluxe by phone but the lady at MSC categorically stated it wasn’t possible to do so. I mentioned the upgrade code etc. but to no avail! I shall keep trying, got until May next year to manage it!

    Seaside Aurea Package Questions

    Booked through a TA but spoke to MSC. I mentioned the upgrade code (536) but it fell on deaf ears to be honest. Whether it’s new policy or not, who knows? I will try again!! Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Seaside Aurea Package Questions

    I’ve just tried to upgrade from the Aurea all inclusive package to the Deluxe package (having just booked for next May on the Seaview) and was categorically told that it wasn’t possible, I would have to pay the full price of the deluxe which isn’t great news!! I might have to try again later down the line to see if anything has changed! Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Seaside Aurea Package Questions

    Thanks for that! So it’s something I can do after booking on the online system or calling then. I’m on a 7 day Med cruise, any idea what the upgrade cost would be for 2 people? Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Seaside Aurea Package Questions

    I’m just in the process of booking on MSC on the Seaview for May 2019 and want to upgrade the Aurea drinks package to the deluxe package at the time of booking. Do I give the required code (536) at the point of booking? I want to be sure I can do the upgrade before booking!

    Adults only area

    Thanks Pete, it’s actually May 2019 I’m looking to go! So if I’m not in Aurora then there probably won’t be one? Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Any views re NCL?

    Have done a couple of NCL Med cruises and have just come back from a P & O Caribbean Xmas cruise. I would probably plump for NCL next time to be honest. Entertainment is better and I like the fact that there are various nationalities on board, not just British. If you like a drink or two and entertainment then I would go for NCL.

    Britannia Retreat

    Hi, we are booked on B734a in December and want to book the retreat for the 2 weeks. I'm aware that passengers for B734 will be there in the Friday (we arrive on the Saturday) and that possibly the retreat may be fully booked by the time we arrive. Had anybody had any experience of this at all? Does it get fully booked? I'm aware that it being the Caribbean it might not get fully booked as people will be leaving the shop most days. Don't really want to miss out but as you know, you can't book before you go which is a bit of a pain!! Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Britannia Retreat

    Thanks for the updates, much appreciated! We’re on one of the earlier flights on the Saturday so will head to the spa as soon as we board, fingers crossed! Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Is P&O for us?

    We have done a couple of NCL med cruises and loved them. We are heading out to the Caribbean this Christmas and I don't think that it will be a quiet affair! We considered a lot of lines and we're quite happy with P&O. That said, we haven't yet been on one before but think you should be fine. Sun, cocktails, fab islands, what could be better?!

    Cabin Air Conditioning

    Hi, am heading out to the Caribbean on Britannia for 14 nights in December and I don't cope well in air conditioned cabins, it just 'dries up' my airways, especially over night! I can always leave the balcony door open but I was wondering whether there are any electric fans they can provide instead? Has anyone managed to get hold of one? Sent from my iPhone using Forums

  17. Great review Mark, we were getting off as you were getting on! Have to agree with everything you say, it is a fantastic ship. We went on the same trip last year and it went to Palma rather than Marseille which was a better choice IMHO. And you can make it your cruise as much as you want and ignore all the negative reviews! Well done again! Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    christmas on britannia

    Thanks for the responses and a great review! Looks like we've made the right choice! Only been on the Epic previously in the Med so will look forward to it. The transfer from plane to ship sounds good, have been to Barbados numerous times and know what the queues can be like at immigration! Sent from my iPad using Forums

    christmas on britannia

    Hi, we have just booked the Britannia Christmas & New Year cruise on 23rd December 2017 and can't wait as it will be 50th celebrations as well! Would be grateful if somebody could let me know the age range, are there lots of children etc. Also is the Retreat worth the money?! Sent from my iPad using Forums

    E cigs question?

    I was on the Epic in June and now vape instead of smoking. Go to the cigar lounge or outside on Deck 7 (I think), you'll have no problems! Must be healthier e-cigs in the UK!! https://www.gov.uk/government/news/e-cigarettes-around-95-less-harmful-than-tobacco-estimates-landmark-review

    UBP & Spanish VAT (for UK residents)

    Got off the Epic about a month ago from 7 day Med cruise and had pre booked the UBP. No sign of any additional VAT at all!!
