  1. Thanks for sharing. I've got to wait til July to see it, can't wait. Reminded me of a UFO as it hovered into place!
  2. We'll find out in due course! Don't expect it's included.
  3. We visited St Petersburg last year and did a two day tour with Red Sun Tours. The tour was conducted by the owner, Elena, herself who was very interesting and informative. As well as offering day tours she is also able to arrange evening actives. I have no hesitation in recommending her and will certainly use again, should the opportunity arise. https://redsun-tours.com/
  4. I haven't had a copy sent to me either, but picked one up when on Britannia last week!
  5. When I was last on Britannia (Nov 18) there was a table where passengers could swap their books. I take books with me and leave any that I've finished with there.
  6. I decided to cancel a cruise as I was going to be made redundant and lost my deposit. I did query the "in the event of unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances" but got nowhere!
  7. Last cruise my middle name didn't show on my e-ticket so I rang P&O to query it and they said that they had a record of my name and not to worry. I have just checked my CP and my middle is there and also shows on my E-ticket this time!
  8. It was on Britannia last summer and although I wasn't interested in seeing it I was persuaded by other guests who had. I didn't get to see any of it as the music was so loud for the introduction that I had to get up and walk out.
  9. I have never done Freedom dining as I prefer Club Dining. It is nice to have the same waiters each evening as they get to know your preferences and you also get to know them. My mother has an allergy to cheese she is given the menu for the next day to choose what she wants and if necessary any adjustments can be made, which I think would be more difficult with Freedom.
  10. Is anyone sailing on Britannia in July? I am trying to arrange a tour of St Petersburg with Elena of Red Sun Tours, if anyone is interested. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2598429-britannia-b919-cruise-to-the-baltic-july-6th-2019/
  11. Have been to Copenhagen in December, not with a cruise though, and visited Tivoli Gardens. Tivoli Gardens is well worth the visit and the Christmas market inside had a wide variety of things on their stalls. We spent quite a bit. Don't know if they take cards as we only used cash. I do know that Denmark is expensive.
  12. I have sailed on Britannia on two occasions and have been on both decks B and D forward and have not been aware of any movement, but like most ships that depends on the weather! The Crows Nest did get busy in the evenings, but as previously been said, if you get there early. We also found that the theatre tended to fill up very quickly. Embarkation was the same as all our previous cruises.
  13. I have found some difficult to read when they include quotes from previous posts. Or is it just me? I agree that it is too white!!
  14. Did a Baltic cruise earlier this year and used a company called Red Sun Tours which was excellent. I would highly recommend them.
  15. We did the Baltic this year and I too would highly recommend Red Sun Tours. Also doing the Baltic again in July next year.
