    P & O Alcohol Policy

    Personally I would prefer P&O to go down the Princess route. One bottle of wine per person (no spirits), but you are allowed unlimited extra bottles of wine, subject to $15 per bottle corkage. Much fairer than the current P&O policy which unfairly penalises wine drinkers in favour of the spirit drinkers. No need to smuggle anything.

    P & O Alcohol Policy

    Our last cruise had 16 sea days - explain the bit about going ashore for a drink to me!

    P & O Alcohol Policy

    No one said anything about smuggling. We like to drink out own wine on our balcony, and when we cruised there was no restriction . If we cruise again we will abide by the new alcohol policy.

    P & O Alcohol Policy

    Our last cruise was 24 days. This was prior to the new alcohol policy, and we sailed from Southampton. We took aboard various wine boxes/ bottles and topped up in the various ports. We probably saved £500 by so doing. Our bar bill was still £800 so P&O did not exactly suffer, but the £500 we saved was very welcome.

    Makes no difference how much alcohol you buy. You can only take one litre per person aboard !

    BA or VA for London flight

    My choice, and I've only flown PE in BA and Virgin, would be Virgin every time. Just an all round better product. Virgin also have a dedicated PE check in at LAX, unlike BA. Plus, you get to book your seats for free, unlike BA. Sent from my SM-T580 using Forums mobile app

    Barbados flights

    If you booked a BA club ticket you would pay £60 each way to select your seat. Why do you think it is "disgusting " to pay £30 ? Sent from my SM-T580 using Forums mobile app

    Tipping bartenders on 🚢

    As a Brit, I have been following this thread with interest. Never, in a million years would I be so patronising as to give someone a bribe, in order to try and get better service. Yes, if someone goes over and above the call of duty, a tip is fine, but to fling cash about like a Mafia Don is very, very declasse. Sent from my SM-T580 using Forums mobile app

    Flying overseas

    I think you will find that very few airlines will offer a specific seat on the basis of a random phone call. If you want a specific seat, do what the rest of us do, and pay for it. Sent from my SM-T580 using Forums mobile app

    Barbados flights

    As has been said, P&O charter the flight, therefore they determine the extra charges, so no point contacting TC. These days, paying to select your seat is the norm. You can fly BA in Club, paying perhaps £3000 for a return ticket, and you will still have to pay extra to select your seat. As a percentage of the cost of the total holiday, the cost to select your seat is not that great. You always have the option not to pay. Sent from my SM-T580 using Forums mobile app

    Canary Islands shore excursions

    I would actually say that Puerto del Carmen is the main resort, and nearer to Arrecife. However, Playa Blanca is the nicest resort on the island! Sent from my SM-T580 using Forums mobile app

    Rating the ships

    Interesting thread. Would it be possible for those members who have been on other cruise lines as well as P&O, to give their overall Top Ten? Sent from my SM-T580 using Forums mobile app

    Atlantic crossing November

    If you can forecast the wind speed and direction in your garden for every day of November, the accuracy of your forecast will be about the same as any forecast for the Atlantic for the same period. Our last TA in November last year was fine until we reached the BoB, when we hit a force 11, and that was pretty exciting! Sent from my SM-T580 using Forums mobile app

    Britannia Sail Away Parties

    Obviously I agree with you, but wait for the replies! Sent from my SM-T580 using Forums mobile app

    Manchester to Barbados

    TUI hold back 20% of seats for allocation at the airport, for those pax who, for whatever reason, have not checked in online. Sent from my SM-T580 using Forums mobile app
