  1. Uganda room, have used it for pre dinner cocktail parties,up to 40 people.
  2. I do not send any thing back, I just leave it. On Aurora in December I left a lot, particularly the so called roast potato!
  3. daiB I am not harping back to the old days, neither am I commenting on volume, merely on quality and presentation.which in MHO is not up to scratch
  4. Not that I am suggesting an extra payment,merely illustrating a point. Premier prices are already being paid by guests on the Adult ships
  5. Sorry I do not wholly agree, I am also only making the point regarding the MDR. The current level of meals including presentation choice and taste,fall a long way short of the so called advertised dining experience in MHO. Linking the poor quality of food choice, presentation and taste to cruise prices is not logical. 16 night cruise at say an extra £10.00 extra per night,at worst = £160.not exactly a deal breaker on the adult only ship Aurora in MHO.
  6. The food presentation in the MDR, on Aurora, is dia, in MHO, the home delivered farm food advertised enterprises, look more appetising. Aurora canteen quality at best.This is my opinion from our December 2023 cruise
  7. Totally agree with your MDR assessment,our thoughts exactly,also with the maintenance issues, particularly with the lifts and the external presentation.Although we have 3 cruises booked,the next on Aurora end of April,but we may cancel the other 2 should we become unwell again. Still not fully recovered from December cruise.Enjoyed your adventure
  8. Totally agree with you, it is what we experienced on our December cruise. We were told that it was an experimental set of menu's, and that they had already received a lot of complaints.
  9. I did long drive to get my eyes tested! then I think I was over charged
  10. I keep my cabin hydrated, soak a hand towel in water squeeze until just dripping peg on wire coat hanger and hang from air con vent in the ceiling, get bath towel and scrunch it up, and lay under hanging towel to catch the drips. Works for me and a lot of other folk
  11. A build up of gunk on the pipes loosened into the system and up into my basin, surly is not the same as that straight from the purified source. It's harboured growth? i.e.; the gunk on the pipe has grown from what into what? I would have thought that it must be a bacterial situation good or bad, but hey not got a clue which is why I am asking
  12. That is part of the point of the question! also sediment in the pipe must surly harbour bacteria, how is it purged?
  13. Any one any idea what they do to purge the system, after a brown water incident running through the basin taps or shower? Running the water until its clear, seems to be the way they do it, but surly there is contamination within the pipework leading to the taps afterwards. Could this be part of the illness problem on board, sometimes, rather then the air con? which most people quote. Just asking!
  14. Yes, pre Covid 24 day Canada cruise Brown water and sludge from basin taps same on Aurora 2023
  15. Megbear2 Same symptoms, not nice and a bit scary, mine is finally clearing a bit, started,12th December also had 3 lots of antibiotics. Had to dial 111 doctor wanted me to dial 999, but strike in progress so did not want to up take emergency's time. Defiantly seek help!
  16. Ask Cleo, for some honey, and your cabin steward for fresh lemon, mix with hot water and drink, it does not fix your virus but it does ease your throat. The Staff recommend this! I am still suffering from my December Cruise
  17. Megabear Apologies for my last contact, had not picked up that you were afloat. Hope you are feeling better.
  18. Sounds similar to my illness, just started 3rd coarse of antibiotics, had chest x-ray yesterday, and gave other samples as required. waiting for results. Have a good trip, and may I suggest that you do your homework regarding available emergency facilities should they be needed
